The Pelican is terrific. Fabulous staff, so so clean, right on the water and can walk to so many ammenities. Offer discounts to local cuisine, easy access - very pretty spot! Hammocks, water, sun, and palm trees - what more does one need.

I am paddling from Key Largo to Key West and back to prepare for my Cuba to USA paddle. I needed a place to safely store my kayak while I ran a few errands. Ozzy, the manager, was more than helpful. My kayak was safe all day, he offered to let me take a shower, and fill up my water...

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel during our keys visit. We were very disappointed to discover that the room was not cleaned, towels not changed and bed were not done. The room is near the highway and very noisy, Wi-Fi was not available in the room (too far from the spot?) Fridge is also very noisy. Breakfast is just...

Location is wonderful, right on the water for some places. There are studios, 1-bdrm, 2-bdrm with comfy beds, but lacking amenities (no soap, shampoo and very thin towels, if there are any). The older Front Office guy has no personality & always on edge, so questions & special requests are a challenge to him! I've now stayed 3 times (I...

The cottage, or room #108 was smaller then a dorm room! The bed was awful and sinked in the middle. The shower handle was so rusted it took a lot of time to turn the water off. Breakfast was pretty poor as there was no real coffee, just a neo machine. The view from the dock is nice, and we...

We booked this hotel for the location, water front view in our room which when it came to sunrise and sunset was stunning. However the bed was uncomfortable for us (All about personal preference) There was no sitting area in this room so to watch the T.V. you had to lay in bed. Although many would think you wouldn't be...

Just by luck we booked this property and absolutely loved it! Our tiled floor cottage housed two double beds, a couch, coffee table, tv, large dining table, kitchen and small bathroom. The only thing we did not like was the close proximity of our cottage to the street because of the traffic noise in the morning. Had the air conditioner...

For the traveler on a budget, this is a great place to stop. With many different housing options to choose from, this is a great choice if you're stopping for the night on your way to/from Key West. We stayed in the basic cottage which consisted of a bed, fridge, microwave, small bathroom and a table and two chairs. Really...

We rented a two bedroom cottage, steps from the ocean, for the price of a moderate price chain hotel/motel. It was heaven, having virtually ones own dock and chairs outside the door. Rooms were large, clean and furnish with utensils. Great location for all the sights. We stayed 5 nights.
