The view was awesome and the rooms were so cute. My husband and I loved it and will be back. Our maid was CeCe and she was so nice and helpful. Ashley worked with me to make sure we got a room with a perfect view on the 4th floor. We had a microwave and toaster and coffee maker with coffee provided every day. We walked to the beach every day the weather allowed which was most every day. We love Clearwater Beach and visit every year.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Price was very reasonable . The motel is close to the beach. You just walk across the street. Free parking, restaurants walking distance, friendly staff. Rooms are very clean. Exceptional service by office staff. We stayed in room #112 which is close to the pool. The rooms have comfortable beds, and a small kitchenette.

We have just spent 10 nights at the Pelican Pointe. We paid for a gulf view as recommended on this site, and phoned and asked for a high floor with a view of the Gulf. We were given room 429, the outside end room on floor 4, the top floor. The position could not have been better as the beautiful sunset was right across the road.

When we booked, I was told that breakfast was provided. By October, this was simply a prepacked Danish style pastry, and only Monday to Thursday. We bought orange juice, cereal & milk for the Welgreens just a few minutes walk left from the hotel and that was all we needed.


The suite was fine, with a comfortable superking size bed though the light duvet cover was 100% polyester. I would not even dream of non cotton bedlinen here in Scotland. There was a microwave but all the plates provided were melamine, & had writing underneath each instructing not to be used in the microwave. One of the two mugs was a large plastic affair which I would not use. Fortunately, the reception staff were extremely obliging and provided a ceramic mug.

Although The Pelican Pointe.is sold as an hotel, it is in fact individually owned apartments/studios under a 'letting management' as opposed to a hotel management so this accounts for the melamine 'crockery' and numerous items with the owner's name and apartment number boldly & clearly marked.

Although the general housekeeping could not be faulted, we felt our maid service left something to be desired. While it was immaculate on arrival, perhaps the fact that we were there for 10 days meant a little bit of familiarity breeding contempt. I had to ask for the sheets to be changed and replenishment of coffee/ teabags.


The pool is clean & ample pool towels are provided and it is well sited for sun all day but we note that the parking lot opposite will close on 29/10. If condominiums are built on that site, it will severely restrict the views and the sun to the pool and the Gulf view rooms.

Parking is so restricted and expensive in Clearwater beach that it was a boon to have free parking right opposite the beach at the hotel.
The only disadvantage is that there is nowhere to hang up wet costumes etc.

As stated earlier, the reception staff could not have been more helpful. Ashley in particular made us feel so welcome and even gave us two of her homemade cupcakes -delicious! Sadie gave us great advice on eating out and Cliff, who loves the Hawaiian shirts uniform [haha] always had a cheerful smile & willingness to please. Right down to 'Granny' who did nights and the maintenance guys, nothing seemed any bother. What a great team of workers.

Room Tip: Although gulf views are excellent, on floors 3 & 4, we noted that the bay view rooms on the top...

We stayed at Pelican Pointe for one night in the first week of October and we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel was lovely and bright and clean and only minutes walk from the beach. The staff were really friendly and even though we were 2hours early for check in they allowed us to put our bags in the staff office and complete the process so we could just pickup our key when we came back from the beach.
Our bedroom was a very good size with a kitchenette,sofa bed and a huge kingsized bed plus a bathroom with a nice powerful shower.
Overall we were very impressed.

Spent a weekend at Clearwater in the pelican suite and have to say it was great, amazing view of the beach which was just across the road, great room which was cleaned every day, nice pool area and very helpful staff. Would stay again and hope to one day.

My husband and I was just coming over for the night. Saw the sign that said walk in are welcome and thought I would check out the price. It was their last room and for the price and the location it was awesome. We could see the gulf from our room, overall it was a nice stay and I will return with my husband. The front desk employee were very nice. We stayed in room 223 awesome view of the water.
