I liked it, but my husband did not care for it. He thought it was dated, but that didn't bother me. Cleanliness is my top priority and that it was. We were able to walk to play putt-putt and if you are a Moose Lodge member, there is a nice one on the beach, within walking distance. They serve food...

Across the road from the beach, this place was one of the coziest AND the least expensive place we found. It is a very nice area and safe. Loved the kitty cats that greeted us. We felt right at home at this place. We will be back for sure!

Hubby & I needed a quiet weekend to ourselves but didn't want to go too far from home. Bradenton Beach on Ana Maria Island is only about an hour away and we had stayed at the Pelican Post a few years ago and decided to go back again. We were not disappointed we had a nice clean room,and of course...

My daughter & I needed a place that was economical, close to the beach and also to my parent's house. The Pelican Post is an older building, motel style, but kept up well and very clean. It is a nice quiet location and just a short walk to the beach and other places. If you are looking for super fancy,...

We recently stayed here for a night while on the island for visiting and relaxation. This is an older building, motel style, but lovingly maintained and obviously cared about. There are some really beautiful old tropical plants/trees on the property that add to the ambience. If you're looking for something trendy and fashionable, this isnt it, but if you want...

Just got back from a week at the Pelican Post. I had such a nice time there. The accomodations were exactly as pictured and were very comfortable. I had a mini-apartment and some friends joined me for a couple of days and we all slept very well in the beds. It's in a great location - one street over from...

This quaint motel is great for families of all sizes. It is located just a few hundred yards off Bradenton beach. It has several different rooms to suit most needs, and has a yard where the kids can play and the adults can gather. The yard is great for grilling, and a grill is provided at no extra charge. Some...
