Stayed one night. Nice affordable little motel. The owners were very nice and friendly. The room was clean with updated furniture. It had a frig and coffeemaker. The bathroom was good size. This motel is in a good location just outside the center of Marathon. We would stay again.

Motel and location was great. The front office lady was so friendly and could not do enough to make sure our visit was pleasant and memorable. The residents are super friendly as well, we appreciated the invite to the Pot Luck Xmas dinner even though we had other plans. We stayed in Room #3 (right next to the office). The...

Stayed 2 nights in the motel due to very affordable price compared to places in Key West. Front desk was very accommodating of my late arrival and made sure they communicated how to get access to our room. They also were flexible accepting my payment since I wasn't at the motel during their office hours. The room itself was basic...

I had nothing but good things to say last Feb during our stay. This trip....disappointed. We stayed in one of the efficiency rooms. It was dirty, to say the least...last time we stay at this property.

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...

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
