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...

We stayed for 3 nights during peak season. March spring break time. The room was clean and updated for the most part. Bathoom could use a remodel but was usable . The pool was clean. The "rv" section was quite . There is a point on the water you can walk to. It was very quiet and felt safe. Not...

Was very nervous to what we would find when we checked in. It was a very clean, updated motel that shares w motor homes and trailers. Very clean.Friendly staff. We would stay there again! Only complaint is there in not an outlet in the bathroom!

We reserved a room for 5 days. We called ahead of time because we weren't going to make it during their business hours. They left a key for us since we arrived at 11pm. Once we walked in the room, I looked over things to make sure it was clean. Sadly, the bed looked like the sheets had not been...

Dear Guest, I am sorry that you did not have a good experience on your recent visit. We always strive to have extremely clean rooms and superior service despite the fact that we are a small "Conch" style motel. I have spoken with both our front office staff and housekeeping team and neither recall an experience similar to the one...

Stayed at motel unit for 6 nights. Very clean room with good housekeeping daily. 15 minute drive to Marathon services. Very poor WiFi during the entire stay, despite being close to server. Staff were aware but were unable to help. Login to Wifi was complicated and often there was no service at all, even in the reception area. An electrical...

Booked a room for one night. Room was very clean and comfortable! In a perfect place to drive late in the evening from Key West and to continue driving to Miami the next morning. Staff was friendly and welcoming.

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
