“Nice and CLEAN!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

This was our second time at Pelican Pointe. The place is nice and clean! Too many people over the 4th of July weekend tho...but that's to be expected! There is construction across the street but we were mid-hotel and it didn't bother us at all.

Room Tip: The first floor gets the results of the rains more than the others. Plus, it can be noisier when cr...

Recently we stayed at the Pelican Pointe Hotel. We came in early to get a parking pass and were surprised with early checkin which was a huge plus. The rooms where clean and bigger than we expected. right across from the beach and close to shops, restaurants. The staff was great very friendly and helpful.we have found our place to stay when we go to clearwater.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

We booked our room in early January via the hotel's website and requested a fourth-floor (top floor) room with full view of the gulf and equipped with king bed. (On the hotel's website, one chooses the floor and room number based on how the room is equipped.) When we arrived at the hotel, we were assigned a different room number on the 4th floor and we learned the room had two double beds instead of one king bed. As it was explained to us, there was a "disconnect" between the website and the reservation system. The person at the front desk was apologetic and made a tremendous effort to get us another room on the 4th floor with a king bed. We did not get a full view of the gulf so he refunded part of our room cost by issuing a credit to the credit card used for the original booking. However, because that card had been cancelled subsequent to our booking the room, the refund could not be processed to the old account. The next day, my husband talked to the manager who had been advised of our situation by the night staff. She personally called our credit card company to explain the reason for the refund and the refund was then posted to our new credit card. Throughout all this, the front desk staff and manager remained gracious and helpful. We appreciated the extraordinary steps the staff took to straighten out our reservation.

Since the rooms are actually "condos" owned by individuals, the rooms vary in décor and equipment. The room we got was more like an extended studio. The room was equipped with a "kitchenette' - with mini-fridge, microwave, dishes and flatware -- adequate for a quick bowl of cereal but one could not prepare meals since there was no stove or oven. The king bed was comfy and there was a table with two chairs. One positive feature of all the rooms with large glass windows facing the exterior walkways is that they are tinted so that we could see out but people could not see into the rooms.

Regarding rooms with a view, I think this may be a moot point since there is construction going on across the street. It appears that a 15-story high-rise hotel is being built which will likely obscure any view from the Pelican Pointe.

The Pelican Pointe is across the street from the beach, but I do not know how the new high-rise hotel across the street will affect access to the beach. The staff at the Pelican Pointe is the jewel.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms 111-114 - these rooms are on the ground level and bear the brunt of foot traffic.

I have stayed at Pelican Pointe a couple times, and never regretted a moment! The staff is commendable!! They are very attentive to every last little detail. The beach is very accessible, the rooms are very clean, and the staff ensures you are comfortable. I had the best vacation experience each time I stayed. If you want to enjoy a Clearwater Vacation, Pelican Pointe is the place to do it!!

Very close to the beach. This is the second time we have stayed here. A little pricey this time though. Very clean rooms. Ice machines on the first and second floor. Staff was very friendly. Will definitely stay here again.

This is our second time staying at Pelican Pointe - just got back! The hotel is convenient to the beach. Our room was very nice and with a full size frig that's a bonus! We had a Gulf view/pool. Hotel - very clean. Front desk staff - very friendly and organized. Maintenance staff - always working to make sure things are running smoothly!! We had a few minor things that needed repaired in our room but maintenance got right on that! The pool is clean and the pool area is very well maintained. You can tell they really take pride in wanting to keep their guests happy and wanting us to come back AND we plan to! I read some of the other comments about the construction across the street. It did start sometime after 7am but with the rooms having the bedrooms in the back and the A/C on, it did not bother us at all! Of course, the 15 floor hotel that they will be building will obstruct some of the view of the Gulf, but a short walk will get you to the beach!! I did not feel I should rate the hotel based on the construction since they have no control over that. So 5 stars is what I'm giving them!

Room Tip: 4th floor Gulf view would give you the best view of the Gulf (until the hotel is completely built...
