About Hotel

Welcome to the Pelican Post, a quiet place to stay on Anna Maria Island!

Small and personal, the Pelican Post offers a selection of affordable rooms, very very close to and with great access to the beach.

We can be found right in the middle of the sleepy little historic town of Bradenton Beach, a mile from the southern tip of Anna Maria Island, and close to the Cortez bridge.

Quiet and unassuming, we are just what you need for an easy, relaxed and affordable, lazy island weekend getaway, a midweek break or full beach vacation.

The Pelican Post on Anna Maria Island is a great place to start if you are looking for a slower pace, relaxing beach vacation. Take it easy and unwind. Stroll around our quiet streets and taste life in “island time”.

So, grab your shorts, flip-flops and a chair and come relax on our gorgeous beach. Wiggle your toes in the surf….maybe take a walk along the 5 miles of fine, soft white sand, with warm, clear blue water and remember — look out for those dolphins!!

  • Cozy!

    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.

  • Peaceful place to stay

    Stayed there with my husband, we were going to stay for 3 nights but stayed for 5 as we loved it so much. Hop skip and a jump from the beautiful beach, Room was large, clean with a vintage feel which we love. Plenty of outside space with own parking. BBQ area with brand new BBQ which we used everyday, sun loungers and plenty of seating. Very well kept gardens and helpful staff. Definantly will go again.

  • Great Stay on the Island

    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!!

  • Little Piece Of Heaven

    My parents, husband and I stayed overnight in the suite during Aug 16 and we absolutely loved the place. From beginning to end we enjoyed every second of our stay. Communication was excellent, I had many little questions before our arrival and was replied to fully and quickly. Very easy to find, great location near to beach, restaurants and shops. The suite was clean with good amenities. Overall our host was very friendly and informative, nothing seemed to be a problem at all. We thought it very good value for money and if we ever visited Anna Maria Island again we would definitely stay here again.
