“Wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

We stayed one night, but would have stayed more if there was availability. Fantastic service, good location for North Naples activities. Not in the beach, but very close. Close to shopping and dining. Very clean! Great rate, will be back!

Exceeded expectations...excellent location...friendly staff...good breakfast...pleasant view of lake...clean room...convenient shuttle to beach (Thanks Michael!). Would have rated it 5 stars had it not been for the low water pressure in shower. Overall, a very pleasant stay.

My husband and I just spent four nights at the Inn at Pelican Bay. It exceeded our expectations with quality of service from all staff members. Concierge staff were excellent including Vanina who made sure that we had all our needs met. Breakfast was very fresh and complimentary. A shuttle was provided for convenient drop off at the beach and pick up as well making it easy not dealing with parking. I also have to say the location was convenient to other shopping and dining. Mercato across the road offers nice places to eat, and close by was The Village which has lot of up scale dining and shops.

Overall The Inn at Pelican Bay was a great location which added to the nicest experience and made our Anniversary special!

Room Tip: Ask for upper floor facing pool and lake with fountain.

The Inn at Pelican Bay is a smaller, nicely decorated boutique hotel. The location is a little over a mile to Vanderbilt Beach and across the street from the best collection of restaurants, bars and night spots in Naples at the Mercato. The self-parking is free, there is a "resort-fee" of $12/night which is not included in the Hotwire price. Included is internet access, daily newspapers, and a small workout room inside the hotel. Outback there is a covered patio, small pool, hot tub, courtyard with nice shade trees followed by a small lake with fountain. A complementary open air electric vehicle shuttles guests to & from Vanderbilt Beach at various times a day. They also offer bikes for a fee. The hotel includes a free breakfast including coffee, bagels, muffins, fruit, cereal, juices, help yourself waffle maker, and hard boiled eggs. The rooms are nicely decorated, with a desk and sofa, some have balconies some don't. I found the beds to be very firm without pillow top or a memory foam feel, I tossed & turned the first night. The room has the smallest screened TV I've seen in a hotel in years with non-HD quality broadcast. Good features include a good size refrigerator and a very modern wall safe in the closet at chest height . The AC was quite powerful to fend off the oppressive summer heat but a little noisy as it was the type which the fan is continuous. The staff was helpful, efficient and friendly enough. Overall a good value for a 2-3 night stay for a local event or getaway weekend but I would not classify the Inn at Pelican Bay a "resort".

Room Tip: Request a balcony room they offer a nice view of the pool & lake

Beautiful hotel with super friendly staff. So close to everything in the center of Naples!! Everything in walking distance. We walked to Mercato right across the street for a little nighttime fun which was full of restaurants and some fun little bars. Beach is only a mile away and the Inn provides transportation. Complimentary breakfast was a great start to our day. Rooms were clean and nicely decorated. Vanina, Scott, and Steve at the hotel were so incredibly helpful. Very much looking forward to our next weekend getaway in Naples at The Inn at Pelican Bay!!
