4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I booked this place 1) because of location and 2) because of the decor. This place has a very unique and distinct look, which appealed to me. This was a short girls (2 of us) weekend and we stayed in a 2 twin room. We loved the way that the room was decorated, each room has its own theme. You... More

This was my first time visiting the Pelican Hotel and i am totally hooked. I never write reviews but I just felt I needed to. I heard they were really good, that's why I booked with them. The location is perfect, the food is really good and the customer service which is typically not great in South Beach was incredible... More

We Ubered from MIA and were very early for check in but luckily our room was ready. Each room had a cool theme to it and while we only peeked into a couple of rooms, we loved our room's decor. It was clean and equipped with small fridge, safe, large flat screen, good size bathroom with high quality amenities. The... More

Please, on your next visit remind us of your preference and housekeeping will make your bed with a top mattress that will help you rest.... More

I came to the beach for my wife's 49th birthday event. We've been to a lot of beaches but the hospitality of the young beach crew at Miami's South beach 8th street beach entrance were by far the best EVER at any location I've traveled. Wonderful group!

McKevin and Audi were great help. We were set up in a spot where you could see the water! That umbrella did wonders for us and Mckevin was always on top of us making sure we were good and had a good time out there! He was dope!

Smaller boutique hotel. Convenient bar downstairs to start your day. The room was small, but hip. Great location. No car needed. Walk and watch area. More touristy than what I remember. From there....... Cuba!!

Funky, unique hotel in the middle of the action. Great location! The free breakfast, free wifi and 2 free drinks at happy hour PLUS 2 free beach chairs and towels make this a great choice for a visit to South Beach without breaking the bank. We found a public parking lot just 4 blocks away that was only $20 per... More
