Stayed here only one night enroute home to Sacramento; wish we could have stayed longer....next time. This is a very nice facility on Moonstone Beach Road. Front desk staff were welcoming and helpful. Really enjoyed the cheese, crackers, fruit and wine in the evening and a good breakfast was provided in the morning. Our room had a partial ocean view...

We are from Oregon and came down to Cambria last October and knew we wanted to return and spend a bit more time. This time we chose the Pelican Inn. Our room was as the picture, minus the ocean. Although an ocean view would have been nice when you leave your room you are only steps away. There is an... More

We were very pleased with our room and its amenities. Breakfast in the dining room was hot and fresh and lots of fruit as well. The cheese and wine hour was nothing fancy but well presented and more than enough wine choices and cheese with crackers and bread. Non-alcoholic cider was also available. Internet was a bit iffy at times... More

Stayed here this past weekend (Sat & Sun nights). Accommodations were very nice. Property has three buildings but fairly close together so getting to the office or dining area is no biggie from any of them. Each day included a buffet style breakfast with a combination of cooked goods as well as multiple breads, fruit, oatmeal, waffles, and a variety... More

We visited during an unseasonably warm spell (90 degrees in mid March) and the room was HOT. We had to keep the ceiling fan on all night to keep it bearable. We were upgraded to a partial ocean view which was nice, but I wouldn't have paid extra for it - partial is very partial. The room was great, amenities... More

During a recent business trip, I had the opportunity to stay in Cambria. There were so many choices! I did my research and chose Pelican Inn and I am so glad I did. The staff was super nice and went over and above to make sure my stay was amazing, including bringing me a glass of wine early when my... More

We fully enjoyed our stay at the Pelican Inn. The room was super clean and the staff awesome. A small suggestion is to not take a full ocean view as these rooms are over a parking lot. We had a room second floor which gave us more sunshine and a near perfect view of the ocean. We will be back... More

I loveddddd this place. I stayed in a full ocean view room which was awesome. I'd recommend the second floor for a better view but was satisfied with my first floor view. The area was so beautiful and calm. I'm not into the highly populated vacation spots so this was perfect. The staff at this hotel was great, the free... More

I booked this hotel at 40% off on a cyber Monday a couple months in advance.. When I checked in and requested an upgrade to the second floor, they told me I was not paying enough to do that. When I checked the rate online that day, I found that I was paying $25 more than the daily rate online.... More
