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!

I stayed in this park a couple of years ago. I knew nothing about it, except that it was reasonable. Being a single woman, I went there, and made it my home. I bought a trailer that was already in the park, and moved in. What I found was friendship, safety, cleanliness and good

My husband and I visited the Keys for the first time so we really just took a chance on where we should stay. We knew we wanted to stay in the Middle Keys but that was all we had to go on. We were very fortunate to have found this place. They are still doing some renovations,

This is a very friendly place to stay if you want to be centrally located in the Keys. It is located right on the bay. You can fish from the dock while drinking your morning coffee, and be in Key West in an hour. State Parks are just a short drive away. I will stay here again.

Small and clean. All we really needed. My only downfall was that when we booked we thought we rented a small camper, bungalow type thing. A little disappointed but we were very content with the room we ended up with. The property is clean, well maintained and has some very
