The Pelican Post – Take a closer look……


A Quiet Place To Stay…..

Outside view of Cottage and gardens
The southern end of Anna Maria Island is only three blocks wide and the Pelican Post Motel is nestled right in the middle.

The beach is 150 paces west, the pier 150 paces east. (Less than a minute’s walk to the water in either direction!)

At the Pelican Post you can choose a pleasant ground floor studio, mini apartment, or a suite and all look out into our tropical gardens.bridge-street

Fancy something different?  Try going native and stay in The Cottage, an ‘old Florida’ style, traditional family suite (access is upstairs).

Our rates are affordable for everyone.  You can count on a nice, clean, comfortable room in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.  All our rooms are close to your allocated (free) parking space and convenient to the amenities close by.  If you need some time out, our private courtyard garden is quiet and away from it all.

We have a choice of great places to eat very close to the Pelican Post.  At the last count there were six restaurants within two blocks.  Choose from American, Italian or French cuisine, steaks, locally caught fish dishes, pizza and more – and that does not include our two ice cream parlors!

DCIM100MEDIAFancy taking it easy?  Try a stroll along our pier.  Sit a while and watch the world go by or maybe a little fishing?  At the Pelican Post we are two minutes walk from the historic Bradenton Beach pier.

While you are there, try Anna Maria Oyster Bar.  Enjoy the Florida sunshine and soak up the panoramic view over the bay towards the Sarasota skyline.

Bridge Street runs west to east from the beach to the bay.  Only a block long, it can be found one block south of the Pelican Post.  Browse around a selection of little gift shops, gallery or clothes boutiques and locally owned restaurants.  Our latest addition to Bridge Street is The Fishing Hole – miniature golf


This Sketch map shows our local area or, as we call it, our strolling area.  Leave the car and take a walk.  Buy an ice cream and stroll along the beach, or check out the shops and restaurants on Bridge Street and the pier.
