Perfect location, within walking distance to Bridge Street and gulf beaches. Free local bus/trolley was also a plus. Office staff was very accommodating. Rooms were very clean. Price was very reasonable for area. Can't wait to stay again!!

Great little place to stay but could use some updates on beds and inventory should be taken of what each room should contain....some have more than others. The location is perfect and the place is kept clean.

We stayed in the King Studio room and it was very large, clean and comfortable. It has a full kitchen and 1 bathroom. There are 2 chairs and table outside of each room and many located around the property to sit outside if you like. We had a comfortable king size bed and a large flat screen TV. We were... More

Had our annual family get together here. We grilled outside, there are plenty of chairs and several grills. The property was clean, the rooms had full kitchens and are stocked with cookware. The staff was very friendly and helpful. And off course the beach and marina are only a couple of blocks in either direction.

Pelican Post had no one on duty when we arrived a tad after 6 p.m. on the date we'd reserved. There was a note allowing us to access our room. The room included a small room for watching T.V./cooking and, beyond, a nice large bed. The colors were warm and pleasant, the kitchen, clean and stocked w/ dishware. This was... More

This property reminded me of the places my family stayed years ago growing up and vacationing on the west coast. It wasn't right on the beach but very convenient to it. We went during spring break but this motel was away from the beaten path…quiet and secluded. It is one block away from Bridge St which is famous for its... More
