I can't tell you the last time that an owner of lodging place put so much effort into being friendly to me. This is a tidy, basic beach motel. What distinguishes it is Sam -- the owner/proprietor, who is very personable. This property is very small, but you can tell Sam has maintained it with loving care. To be honest,...

I probably know "The Pelican by the Sea" better than any other guest as it has been my intermittent homebase for more than 2 years now.

We made this reservation because we needed a one night stay before we went to our intended location the following day. The rate was very fair, and the reviews on Trip Advisor were all good. I can only add to those. When I pulled up, Sam (the owner/manager) came out of his office to meet me, and called me by...

Come see Sam! The owner/manager of the property made me feel welcome the moment I pulled into a parking spot...he met me at the car, got things situated with paperwork, then gave me a tour of my room and his small but well cared for property. Room 2 has recently been finished and has some great touches from the remodel,...

Pelican by the sea motel in Pompano Beach, FL looked great online, so I took a chance and it was well worth it! Sam runs the family business. He was so polite, kind and willing to help right away. I was there for 6 days and he was there every day. The room I had was a queen efficiency. It...

We stayed 2 nights here during Pompano Seafood Festival. Location was excellent! Just a short walk to the beach, less than a mile to the festival so we could ride our bikes and save money on parking!
