"Very eclectic - not for everybody."
Sounds petty, but the wood polish used in the elevator and in some rooms gave me a headache. I had to avoid taking the elevator. It was a strong, pervasive smell. This is a very eclectic hotel. Some of that is charming, but it is certainly not for everybody. My room had a "cowboy" motif.

"Boutique-y and fun"
They resolved a booking snafu. And the place has some personality. If you like boutique with a bit of fun (my room was themed the Me Tarzan, You Vain...all rooms are themed differently) then this is a good spot for you.

"Small themed hotel right on South Beach"
Interesting hotel with various themed rooms. We stayed in the Deco room, which was appropriately decorated. Room was a touch small but I wasn't expecting anything big for something that close to the water. The beach was literally across the street. The hotel is also dead center in the middle of the Miami night scene. You can literally walk to dozens of bars and restaurants. Checking in was a little weird. You have to walk through the restaurant to get to the front desk, which isn't marked very well. Also, finding overnight parking is next to impossible. Save yourself the headache and go with the hotel valet (about $30 a day). Just pull up in front of the hotel and they'll take it from there.

"Cute but MUST be Clean"
It is a cute hotel but they should definitely improve in their cleanliness. My "clean" towels smelled used. Also, just because they are white doesn't necessarily mean that old stains are allowed in them. They kind of grossed me out. Bedroom Floor was sticky and dirty. Just because the building is old doesn't mean it cannot be top notch clean and well-maintained. The people that worked there were super friendly but I don't think I would stay there again.

"Filthy rooms air conditioner did not work"
The air conditioned didnt work, the lamp next to the beds were dirty to the point of disrespect. The water in the shower got boiling hot at times unexpectedly. The beds are super hard it was like sleeping on the floor. Seems like the biggest mistake tourist do is rent rooms on the strip all these little hotels are similar bad shape, but this hotel could be the worst.

"Nice hotel right on the beach life"
Like some others have said, if you are looking for quiet, this place - or any place right on Ocean Drive - is probably not for you. For events and the life experience, though it is a great place to be. Funky and cozy would be a good description. Staff was friendly and courteous. Would definitely return to stay.

"Funky cool hotel on the beach"
Really uniquely decorated, in a good way! We had a fantastic ocean front view in a very spacious room. Room rate came with a breakfast buffet (eggs/potatoes/bacon/sausage/toast). Also came with two free drinks during happy hour. Since the beach is across the street, they will give you a towel to use. The staff were all great. If you are a light sleeper, you will probably hear doors closing.

"Great Hotel with a super cost"
We wanted to stay in South Beach and we were going on a cruise. The costs are usually prohibitive, but we found this beautiful jewel right across from the beach. It was on the strip and was very busy. The restaurant in front was associated, but not owned by the same person. Food was very good but the service is all about getting you in a chair. A lot of solicitation going on. Anyway I loved the Hotel! Apparently it is owned by Diesel clothing line folks. I loved the themed rooms, the shower was like getting in a waterfall. From the moment we walked in and were met by the reception desk, it was a pleasant surprise. I had a little bad experience at the bar, but it was turned in to a very good situation by the staff at the hotel. For the cost it doesn't get any better for me. I hope you feel the same. A couple of things to consider: The valet parking is $27 so use your judgement. Also don't get too excited about the watered down drinks at Happy Hour.

"One night stay before cruise."
Most staff was incredibly friendly and willing to help with no questions asked. No printer, but guy at desk printed our stuff for a cruise for us no problem. Tipped him a few bucks. Called a cab when we were ready to go without us having to ask and they came in and got us and carried all our luggage out. South Beach can be harassing at times, but thats every place. A good place to stay for the price. Price for Taxi to the port was around $30 with tip.

Good hotel in the heart of everything. Room is average but ok. Breakfast is not Continental as written here. Very limited choices with no drinks other than coffee or you pay for it. Terrible WiFi and very weak signal during most of the day. If you want to use Internet, you have to go down the lobby which is very loud and it is hard to concentrate. .

"Fun theme hotel in great location"
I enjoyed my stay at the Pelican. The location is convenient and the food at their restaurant was good. The room was fun and funky. Very different from the corporate hotels where I usually stay. Regarding the particular room where I stayed - the overhead fan was terribly noisy, but otherwise it was comfortable. There was a glass window that gave you a view into the bathroom...so be sure you are staying with someone you feel that comfortable with. It's on the main strip, so music was blasting outside our room until 1 or 2 am. I wouldn't stay here with my small children. The breakfast was included, but valet parking was $27/day.

"South Beach for 1 night"
Greetings: My wife and I checked in around 2:30. Our room was ready and was clean and quite nice. It's a small room but quite adaquate for the amount of time you spend in it. The bathroom is just fine. They have commercial type faucets that truly throw a nice flow of water. The shower head is a large sprinkler can and feels great. Everything works, the A/C is cold and the TV is large with lot's of choices. I think the best part of the Pelican is their food and outdoor seating area. We choose to sit on the veranda which is above street level. From there you get to see everything plus don't get the exhaust fumes from the cars which can park directly alongside of the sidewalk. Plenty of cooling fans everywhere and plenty of shade. The food is terrific. I loved their breakfast and there's 2 drinks for each person as part of the room price. That saves $110.00 including tip. I know of very few hotels that include food and drinks in their package. The locations of the Pelican is top notch. Right in the middle of everything. Great stay, I'd recommend this hotel to everyone.

Big disappointment. The hotel is not like the description. The rooms do not resemble their pictures. I have never stayed in a more humid, muggy hotel room. The AC is a small wall mounted unit that did not put a dent in the heat or humidity. The staff was ok and amenities otherwise reasonable.

Would recommend it to anyone wanting a close to the action hotel, with unusual themed decor in all rooms, and only a hope skip and a jump from the beach, the shopping, the restaurants etc.

"Not what I expected"
So I chose this hotel because it was close the beach. Little did I know the entire street was just clubs and restaurants. This hotel was on top of a restaurant that had a dj playing. I could hear the dj blasting music until 2 in the morning. If you're visiting Miami for its night life this hotel and area is perfect for you. I was there on business and so it wasn't ideal. Even worse, you're only option for parking is valet which is $27.00/night. And it'll take them just under half an hour to bring you your car.

"Best Service on South Beach"
From the moment we walked in the door every member of the Pelican team were gracious and welcoming. We have been to SB many times over the years and prefer to stay in Boutique hotels but this is hands down the best service we have ever experienced. They remebered what kind of cocktail you liked, how you take your coffee and made recommandations based on the guest personality instead of just generic suggestions. I look forward to my next visit with The Pelican and I will be recommending them to anyone visting South Beach.

"Hotel of contrasts"
Hard to give a "overall" rating for this hotel since some aspects are impressive, others are really disappointing. Let me explain first the good parts: The hotel has a great location on Ocean Drive in the heart of South Beach. Design of the hotel is also impressive, each room has its own design, and the elevator design is really "delicious"! Restaurant is great (congrats to the cook(s))! You can eat here for breakfast (free!), lunch or dinner and you'll always like the Italian flavor. Staff is great, always ready to help. WiFi is available and free of charge. The above qualities seem enough for a 5 star rating especially coming at a quite convenient prize. But... But there are some "one star" details that makes hotel rating confusing. So: Walking to the room is a nightmare. The "design" of the floor levels seem close to a prison. In the rooms the ergonomics is at 1950's level. And this is annoying especially for the bathroom. Tough to find place for your bath stuff, tough to adjust water temperature, tough to reach anything you need. Even more, walls are thin and very noise "permissive", view from windows may be towards neighboring buildings (horrible), WiFi throughput is low, rooms are small (again difficult to find places to put your things)... So... overall rating 3/5 stars, average between 5 star and 1 star aspects. Would I stay here again? Maybe, but I would first look elsewhere even to more expensive hotels. Recommend it? Please read carefully the "one star" details

"Great hotel in a perfect location!"
We stayed at the Pelican for a long weekend and we would absolutely stay here again. The hotel is located in the heart of south beach, across the street from the beach, surrounded by great restaurants and bars. Within walking distance to almost everything you could want to see including Lincoln Ave, Collins and Washington Ave. The room was very clean and great for my husband and I. We loved the style and art deco look to the hotel and rooms. At first I was worried that the noise from the all nighters outside would make it difficult to sleep at night but we could not hear a single thing coming from outside. The complimentary breakfast was outstanding and the lunch/dinner selections were really wonderful. I have food allergies and the hotel was able to provide options for me. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Complimentary beach chairs for hotel guests was also a plus! Would definitely recommend this hotel!!
