The Inn at Pelican Bay is an upper-middle-range property located closer to the interstate than the beach. The 100 rooms are fairly generic in appearance for a boutique hotel, but they look modern and offer plenty of space, along with comfortable beds. Room amenities include mini-fridges, microwaves, and in some rooms, lake views from nice balconies. The hotel seems geared toward the retired set who may not need to be right on the beach (the hotel even hosts a weekly "single seniors" event). Independent ownership sets the property apart from other options in the area. This hotel might not offer a beachfront location, but it does offer a free lakeside breakfast, free Wi-Fi, free parking, and bike rentals.
