What a respite from bland hotel and motel rooms. The Olde English decor is such a relief from formica that its worth overlooking the flaws mentioned by the other reviewers. The first time we stayed here we were in the back, and the ventilation unit was noisy from the first floor kitchen, This time we were in the front, overlooking... More

Pelican Inn is a 2-story hotel with Tudor architecture, with a pub and dining room, and authentic English cuisine. For lunch, the menu is less formal, and one finds "bangers" as well as fish and chips. For dinner, the menu is more formal, and one finds, for example, Beef Wellington and Curry Blackened Lamb Sirloin. (Please note that, according to... More

My wife and I spent many years living in England, and in our opinion the Pelican Inn is as close to an English pub/inn that we have seen in the States. Of course, an English pub/inn is not up everyone's alley. The rooms and corridors can be small and dark, the pub can be loud when you are trying to... More

I've been missing Scotland for over a year now, and we found this lovely place in one if our weekends trips, we loved it! The foods, the service... Everything is great!!!! Just like the pubs and yes you don't have mobile reception but I'd you're enjoying your company that shouldn't be a problem

Arrived on a beautiful Sunday afternoon and the place was packed! Happy people having a fun afternoon. It was very poplar that day. But then, it is a tiny place with tiny rooms and narrow hall was and stairs. And it is not hard to see how easy it is to fill this place up. Very "old english pub" theme... More

Stayed here one night traveling up the California coast - what a great place - eclectic and fun! Live music in the bar, delicious meal in the dining room, comfy night's sleep and a great brunch on Sunday morning. Don't pass this place by - it's worth the stop!!

This is the perfect place for a wedding, honeymoon, weekend get-away, romantic weekend, or even a family vacation. Located just 30 minutes north of San Francisco, you have to spend about five miles on winding road, but you end up at this little jewel of an inn right on the coast, walking distance to Muir Beach. For my husband and... More

My wife and I went here for our honeymoon and absolutely loved it. It really looked and felt like a English Pub and Inn. We stayed in Room 4 which was small but cozy. Plus there was a balcony over looking the hills. The best part was the English breakfast that came included with the room. The location was amazing.... More

Had lunch there on Sunday. The food reminded me of English food in the '50s before they learned how to cook. Roast beef, tough and tasteless. Potatoes probably cooked 3 days ago and then reheated. Dessert if you could call it that, was a thin tasteless chocolate cake probably made from a cake mix from Safeway, and then they charge... More

Pelican Inn was recommended by our Mill Valley relatives as a place they'd always heard of. To be honest, it seems very much like an old English pub and inn. We were amazed to discover that it was built in the 70s, mostly because we could not imagine that anyone would build such an unusual lodging facility. The pub, the... More
