“Great Place, Great Location, Great Time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

Visited in April with Hubby & 5yo daughter for 5 nights. This place is great. Very clean, well maintained, super family friendly and right on the main strip of Clearwater Beach's Beach Walk. Restaurants, bars, beach activities, fishing charters, shopping etc all within walking distance.
Pelican Pointe is a cute and well run place. We stayed in room 124, on the ground floor, poolside and around the corner from the office. Despite this room's location, it was sweetly silent at night for easy and restful sleep. The room itself is equipped with a king size bed, full bath with tub, futon for extra seating and sleeping, kitchenette (microwave,small refrigerator, coffee pot, toaster, and utensils, dishes, glasses too). Very convenient for having simple breakfasts (cereal, toast, juice), quick lunches (sandwiches/snacks). 2 flat screen tv's (one in the bedroom and 1 in the kitchenette area). Having the office right around the corner was nice because we could pop over and get freshly brewed coffee every morning without having to make it ourselves or trek across the property for this nice a.m. treat! :)
What we also enjoyed about this particular unit is that it offers beach towels, 2 beach chairs and 1 umbrella for it's guests. We took these to the beach right across the street. This saved our family $30/day (that's the cost of chair & umbrella/cabana rental on the beach). This unit also happens to be handicapped accessible, which afforded us A LOT of space to move around, and the bathroom is especially roomy, so for a family with small kids, it was great.
The desk staff here are super friendly and accommodating. They can answer any question, make great referrals for local places to eat or visit and are definitely customer focused.
There is onsite parking, a great size swimming pool that goes from 3 1/2 feet to 8 feet and chairs, lounges and a few umbrella tables poolside. They also have 2 HUGE bins that hold pool and beach toys for the children to use and take to beach as they please. Everyone shares and it's great.
We will be making this our regular vacation spot, and we suggest you give this place a try! You won't regret it!

Room Tip: Room 124 faces Gulf Blvd and is ground level (so not stairs/elevators needed). It is also handicap a...

Very clean and spacious room for 3 female friends down for a long weekend. We had poolside view with chairs and table on balcony. The street was very close, but we had no issues with noise. The staff was very helpful and recommended places to eat within walking distance since we did not have a car. Beach was right across the road. A good hotel if on a budget.

Room Tip: Corner rooms do not have pool view. McDonald's very close. Also rental store close that rents ch...

We booked this room on short notice, before our kids' spring break (K5, 3rd, and 4th grader), and we agreed that there must have been a reason rooms were available here but nowhere else. Especially during spring break time, due to the "V" shape of the hotel, it gets really, really noisy from vehicles and noise on the Clearwater "strip" since it traps the sound, and this makes it nearly impossible to get a good night's sleep. Many of the hotel patrons themselves were also quite loud and obnoxious (some of them retaliated for being eventually kicked out by coming back and tripping the hotel's fire alarms at 2:30 in the morning). Some other guests who had stayed there often indicated that, at other times during the year, it's a pretty quiet hotel. But, between the noise and type of clientele, I would not recommend staying here during spring break time with younger children.

They collect all of your money up front, which I had never experienced before at a hotel. As long as you understand that this is a bargain location, it is a decent enough place to stay. The proximity to the beach is awesome, the beach is right across the street. The pool is great for kids and gets sun for the better part of the day. It was fairly clean and well-maintained. As a runner, I found the location to be nice and close for a run in either direction, down to the Clearwater Aquarium or across the bridge toward Sand Key Park.

My family and myself enjoyed our stay in the hotel. The staff is very helpful and friendly! The room was very clean and nice. They building another property in front of the hotel but we had a room that you could see in between the buildings and had a wonderful water view. The hotel is definitely good value for money and we would recommend it.

This was a perfect place for me with its pastel decor, convenient location, helpful staff, and friendly guests. I expect to be back again.

I loved the look of this place--it embraces its retro style, without simply being "old". It was a very social, friendly place. The guests ranged from couples young and old, large families, singles, and groups of friends of all ages. Many seemed to be repeat guests and some had rented multiple rooms. All of the rooms have a seating area outside the door that faces the pool (and most have a view of the water as well). At night, lots of people sat out on their little balconies overlooking the pool, socializing and enjoying take-out dinners and drinks. Even with all the fun going on outside, it was never too noisy in the common areas, and certainly quiet inside our rooms.

I was very happy with my room. It was clean, with a comfortable bed, well-functioning AC, and a mini-kitchen with refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker and full set of dishes and silverware. The pool was also perfectly heated, which was nice on cooler evenings, and very clean.

I did a lot while I was here and this was the perfect "launching" spot. You can walk to the beach, dining and shopping. It was also an easy drive to places I wanted to visit (Honeymoon State Park & Caladesi Island; Sand Key State Park, and downtown St. Petersburg, to name a few).

Other reviews are correct about some construction--it's not pretty when you're walking by it, but I never was disturbed by any construction noise, and I could not even see it from my windows.

Nestled among hotels that are either much more costly or not as well-maintained, the Pelican Pointe was a hidden gem that I was lucky to find. I had a great stay and hope to return.

We actually like this hotel because of the location just close to the beach and their pool is a nice place to go if you don't like to go to the beach. The staffs are very accomodating, hotel is very clean, wifi connection is good, close to restaurants but things we can say not so good is one,the hotel being build in front of this hotel makes noise and is now blocking the beach view in front, two;the bed is squeaking and you can feel the spring, and three; no complimentary breakfast but all in all we enjoyed our stay in this hotel.
