“Great Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

Stayed with Fiancee for 10 nights on tour of USA.

Location is first class. Right on the beach at the beginning of the restaurants/shops, the pier and entertainment.

Greeted with a nice arrival telling us what to do and when.

Hotel was nice enough. We were given a nice room with a kitchen, big TV and seating area. Had 2 cockroaches however I dont think this can really be helped. Our toilet made a right noise randomly, woke us up a few times, reported but was never fixed, again its a small thing but would have been nice if it was done.

Breakfast was small, some toast, poptarts.. Done the job for us, so no complaints, appreciated the effort they went to.

Pool was small, but hardly anybody was in it as the beach is literally right over the road so It was a non-issue.

Overall, for what we paid and the location, I was pleased.

I want to go back. I can't say enough good things about this place, it was what I called home for a week on Clearwater Beach with my dad. the location is great, across the street from the beach but nothing was blocking the view.the breakfast was basic but not a big deal. The small kitchen area with a table for 2 and couch made it all the more comfortable for our relaxing evenings. There were a few minor issues that came up during our stay and Melanie,the front desk manager, went above and beyond to take care of them. Melanie also advised us about seasonal times to visit. I am hoping to stay next year..but for at least 2 weeks.

This is info how out holiday was in Sept 12 at Pelican Point Hotel.
We parked our car nearby front desk and after 3 day vacation we discovered that someone robbed our car trunk. All items were missing. We were shocked about management respond. Specially manager Melanie and owner Wolfgang. They played hide and seek game. We ask some refund for this accident. They promised all time some complimentary nights(we stay 5 night, third time at this hotel ) and etc but when our departure day arrived manager Melanie and owner Wolfgang were hide somewhere.Ofcourse we dont got any compensation. According to police report and words of police officer this wasn't first time and he was sure that employees of hotel was involved with this robbery.

And our vacation start with big cockroach which was no 314 room. Bug's were everywhere: kitchen, bed, bathroom. Explenation was"this is Florida and it normal" HELLO????

Visitors from Europe.

PelicanPointeMgmt, General Manager at Pelican Pointe Hotel and Resort, responded to this review, November 30, 2012
We are very sorry that this happened to you during your vacation. It is important to note in your review that you had much difficulty figuring out how to use your car remote and our hotel staff had to shut your trunk several times during your stay. Our owner always responds to guest issues but unfortunately he was on vacation in Germany at the time of your complaint. Clearwater Beach is a wonderful place and our Police force would never tell you that it is crime ridden. In fact our officers, although not seen, are very good at protecting Clearwater's main industry, tourism. You also left out the part where the police department could not even confirm that the incident happened here and not at the mall. Piece of advice, when you take a picture of a roach to make our property look bad you should make sure that it is actually inside one of our units. This picture was clearly taken on one of our decorative walkways. It was a good effort though. I wish you the best in your future travels.

We loved our stay at Pelican Pointe!! Extremely fun and convenient stay in an adorably fun and affordable hotel. Normally when you think "hotel on the beach", you think $200+ for a room with one double bed, but I paid half that much for a 6 person room. The awesome price made me think for sure I'd get there and find that the pictures were better than reality. I warned the group I was going with that it probably wouldn't be very nice but it was all that I could afford. Turns out they were so impressed, they couldn't stop congratulating me on such a great find!! It's rare to find such great value. I plan to stay here every time I need a hotel in the Clearwater area. Thanks Pelican Pointe!

Checked in for a 2 night stay only to find that our reservation had been deleted from the system. This was our own fault and I was afraid we would have to pay a lot more extra as the first reservation was done through booking.com. Melanie and Aaron in reception worked some magic and not only upgraded our room, they also matched the price of booking.com! They continued the good service throughout our stay and were both interested in us and eager to tell us about Clearwaters dining options and other activities in the area.

Our room was spacious, colorful, clean and we felt at home the second we walked in. I would have loved to see the bathroom updated. Other then that I was very happy.

The location is fantastic! Sadly the weather was not on our side so we didn't really get to enjoy the beach other then the first evening. Like others have written before, the sunset was truly special and worth a trip see.

Breakfast was available right next to the reception. Nice choice of doughnuts and other sweet morning starters as well as porridge and snack bars. Also a good choice of tea, coffee, juices and water.


Great place, great staff and just what you want when on holiday!

Safe travels!

Hi My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights and would recommend this hotel, The reception staff were friendly and helpful and the location is good just a few minutes walk to the Beautiful beach of Clearwater where the sand is soft and powdery.

The room was very spacious with a sitting area and the king size bed was very comfortable,we also had a fridge, microwave, toaster and coffee maker. The room also had a T,V and was fully airconditioned.

Everything was clean and well presented and overall good value for money. The complimentary breakfast was basic but okay with a choice of healthy cereal bars,pop tarts or muffins and donuts with fresh orange or tea and coffee.

There was free parking on site too and would totally recommend this hotel and would certainly return,

We did use the small pool area which is small but clean and done the job of cooling you down,

We rented 318 for four days/3nights and couldn't be happier. The room was comfy and spacious enough for us. We were able to walk across the street right on to the beach, which has the BEST sunsets ever. We were also within walking distance to all the restaurants and shopping you could possibly need/want. We found our room on flip key for only $70 a night and that included all taxes and fees. NO hidden charges, period. If you plan on staying out late and sleeping in, forget it. You hear everything in this corner room. The ice maker is right outside the door and the echo from it makes it sound like a fire fight right outside the door. That's the only complaint I had and it wasn't bad enough to even really worry about. Enjoy! If we hadn't decided to move down there we would stay there every time.
