“Best kept secret in Naples”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Perfect boutique hotel - staff is wonderful - rooms are spacious and exceptionally clean - balconies overlook the pool or lake. Close to everything in Naples including the beach with complimentary shuttle to beach - definitely will return!

We selected the Inn at Pelican Bay based on reviews found prior to our trip. My wife and I loved the place. It was very clean and well maintained, even the stairways which we tend to use in lieu of elevators. There is a shuttle to the beach or you can take your car and park ($8 all day) in a covered lot next to the beach. The lot attendant leaves at 5pm so the garage is open for free after that time. Nice to drive down and watch the sunset.
The free breakfast was nice but typical of a free breakfast. (hard boiled eggs, fresh waffles, fresh fruit salad, yogurt, cereal, nice selection of donuts, breads and bagels, juices, coffee) Free local and USA today. We're retired so free is nice.
Staff was very helpful, rooms were kept very nice throughout our stay. Pool was clean and not chemically overdosed (ultraviolet treatment maybe) towels available poolside.
I'd stay there again.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the pool & lake. Front rooms face the parking lot which is well treed & l...

Great experience!! Staff is very friendly and nice. Rooms are clean and very nice with balconies. Complimentary breakfast is more than you would expect. Can't say enough about what a wonderful romantic stay it was.

Room Tip: stayed on the 5th floor lakeside which was great. don't know about other rooms.

I have to say, we took this trip there for my wife's birthday expecting this hotel to be your typical 'chain' hotel. Nothing fancy etc etc. We we surprised! It's very clean, very well maintained, and although on the cheaper end of your average hotel, it has somewhat of a 'classy' feel to it. The pictures don't do it justice. The location may not be everyone's favorite, but it's very convenient to stores and restaurants, and in a central location if you plan on doing many different things. Highly recommend this one and if we're ever in Naples again, we will be back!

Anyone chastising this hotel or staff simply wouldn't be pleased at any place. Some people just try to take advantage of our western way of life to maximize their personal gain - we all have words for that class of people don't we. Listen to the masses people, this is a really nice hotel. Clean, great ambiance, very nice rooms although our room had a bit of a musty smell at initial entry - much like my teenage Son's room, but one quickly adapts and doesn't notice after a minute or so. Breakfast is continental; waffle machines, bagels, fruits, etc. - good value - eat indoors or on the outdoor patio or pool area. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Location is great, easy access to all conveniences of Naples and surrounding area. This Canadian highly recommends the Inn - you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Choose a balcony with view to lake

Very nice hotel. Clean and quiet, throughout. Great bar and lounge area. Nice outdoor back porch overlooking small lake. Nice pool area. Only problem was the ducks that thought they owned the place. Breakfast was included and excellent. Very convenient to shopping and beach. We caught one of their specials so the price was very low.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony, overlooking the lake, not the parking lot!

When picking a hotel in Naples you have all the big players like Hyatt and Ritz! And we have stayed at both. This is the best place to stay that feels like Florida. Right on a pond a block from the beach and very clean. Perfect location and service was amazing...i have to say to takes alot to inprease me because I do so much traveling for work! not to mention the great price per night!
