This March was my 4th time staying at the Pelican. This time I stayed at "Stars & Strips". Fun hotel, great location on Ocean Drive, very close to night life and no need for taxis. Happy hour from 4pm to 6pm is super.

We booked a room here through a deal on priceline or one of those sites, and we were pleasantly surprised by how cute the hotel was. Each room is themed...but spacious for the location, very comfortable, and has everything there! The staff went above and beyond during out stay. The location is perfect for nightlife and the beach access. You...

I would definitely recommend this hotel. It's right in the middle of the action and, yet, it was not noisy in the room at night and we were facing the street (Big Bamboo room). We had a dinner and a breakfast at the restaurant and enjoyed both very much. Also sampled the free drinks during happy hour one day. For...

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and was a very nice time. Especially the attention of the staff, except the staff of the restaurant in the night. During the day at the restaurant, the manager Paulinho let us very comfortable, but at night the restaurant staff were not friendly.

Savethejoints! We truly appreciate you taking the time to review our hotel. The Pelican Hotel is a toy hotel designed around playful concept & movie sets, the bathroom pipes & the industrial fan are just part of the humor.
