Our family of 6 adults stayed one night in the motel in one of their family rooms. I called the day prior to our check in to let them know that we would be arriving late. Be sure and do this as they are not in the office 24 hours a day. They gave me our room number, instructions for...

Well, I will say I guess this is a place where you get what you pay for. I understand it's a "Motel" not a Hotel. But it's very upsetting that not only was I not informed when I booked with this motel of their pet policies and Booking.com did not have their pet policies either. I received no follow up...

Very clean room and very interesting place. No Breakfast and beds are super uncomfortable but it was a very clean room. This was our stop before heading to Key West and it met most of our needs. The front office staff was not friendly and not helpful when asking about things to do around the area since it was raining....

This is one of the nicest discount hotels my wife and I have ever visited in the keys. It is no 5 star hotel; however, they more than make up for it with southern hospitality.The staff was wonderful and the residents were helpful as well. A storm came thru and a local offered up her boat slip to give us...

We recently had a two night stay at this motel. It was clean and the room had two double beds, tea and coffee facility and a fridge and microwave. It was ideally located, the pool was lovely, however I think swimming at the water front would have been difficult as there were so many rocks which you would have to...

This was the second time in two years that me and my wife stayed here, and overall it's not that bad. They gave us a great rate for our 9 night stay, and anything we needed the front desk was more than helpful. If I could make a few suggestions, one would be an ice machine on premise, some better...

The location is good when you are going to or coming from Key West. Our room was modest, but clean. The walls were thin and we could hear people in the next room talking and enjoyng themselves. They don't offer breakfast which I didn't notice when booking the room, but thanks to that we found a really nice place to...

We stayed for two nights in a two double bedded room which was nicely furnished and clean bedding. The kitchen and appliances were in good condition. The RV's and mobile homes that were in the park were cute and well kept. The folks there were very pleasant and fun!! Pool was beautiful and well maintained as was the grounds. They...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Carefree’s Pelican Motel was recently remodeled to bring back those retro open-air motel days, but with all the modern amenities we have grown to love. You can pull up right to the door of your private room, conveniently unload your luggage and be sitting on our beautiful shore in less than five minutes.While our look is vintage, our six rooms and three efficiencies are all new. Each room is equipped with an individually controlled air-conditioner, ceiling fan, refrigerator and microwave for your comfort and convenience.Tucked into the picturesque Florida Bay on Grassy Key at Mile Marker 59, just 45 minutes east of Key West, the Pelican is one of a few Marathon Florida Hotels that gives you access to 300 feet of secluded waterfront and a private marina. Our boat slips are just waiting for your vessel, and we’ve got a fish cleaning station ready for you to handle your saltwater catch of the day.When you’re through with your day on the water, jump in by swimming off our bay front or take a dip in our heated swimming pool. Relax, you're in the Florida Keys! ... more   less
