The Pelican RV Resort and Motel gives you access to 300 feet of secluded waterfront nestled along the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. An angler’s paradise, our RV park/motel features 16 boat slips, a fishing area, and a fish cleaning station. Our full-hookup sties each include a private picnic table, wifi, water, sewer, electricity, and cable for one low rate! Visitors without an RV can book a stay in our nine-room motel. This motel is one of the original Keys-style motels. Built in the 1950’s it boasts old style charm with modern/updated rooms. The motel has weathered every major storm to strike the Florida Keys since the 1950’s, including Hurricane Donna, Hurricane Wilma, and Hurricane Irma. It is rumored that some guests have met our own resident ghost. Local lore suggests our eternal visitor chose to stay with us after Hurricane Donna. Whether you choose to stay in your RV or in our fantastic motel, you can enjoy our heated swimming pool, a waterfront chickee hut with amazing sunset views, and a large community grill for cooking your catch. During sunset gatherings along the waterside, mingle with our locals for insider information on the community, learn where the good fishing spots are, or just enjoy the friendly company!

This place is amazing. Staff was awesome, especially Becky. Ended up extending our stay for another day. Very clean, beautiful views and great people. The pool, grill and gazebo were perfect. Going back this weekend! :)

We were fortunate enough to have an almost brand-new RV spot right near the water! (But beware, it may be a challenge for a 5th wheel to negotiate in this narrow park) The seasonal folks and folks who live here are SO amazingly friendly and welcoming. Although we only stayed for 3 nights, I felt very much at home at Pelican and would book it again in a heartbeat. Folks gather at the water for sunset and every single person we met was genuinely friendly. Julie in the office was the perfect mix of professional and gregarious as was every other person who works there. ENJOY!

The motel rooms are nice but they have only about 6. Nice outdoor kitchen too. And a good size swimming pool. There's a marina too. The drawback is that you're vacationing where locals live in the trailer court behind.

We used to stay here for lobster season for a couple of years.... until we had a situation with one one the people that lives in the motor homes in the back. We rented a slip for our boat which is located by the tiki hut in the back. When we came in to park the boat, there was a water hose connected to the water by the post next to our boat. We used it to wash the inside of our boat... welll.... this old man and his wife who live in the Motors home right by the tiki hut.... the home that is right by the community bbq... came out of nowhere... cursing at us... leave my F_ _ king hose alone... he almost pushed my husband... his wife looked drunk... she was screaming profanities from her porch to us... the old man disconnected the hose and took it inside his home... what a sh_ t show... everyone who was outside was looking at us.. now... these to characters were double our age... and we were not going to argue with two old people... this was such a horrible experience that we decided after never to stay here again. We now stay at Coconut Cay...
