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

I was new to this area of the country and needed to relax and yet treat myself. The rooms had style, the service was excellent and the private reading room was a cosy extra with "real" comfortable chairs surrounding a fireplace. The bar was fun and my warm apple dessert and tea was great to bring to my room after... More

For years and years we have all been going to The Pelican Inn....Jim the bartender was like Sam on Cheers. Everyone loved going to The Pelican to see Jim and have a cup of cheer. I lived at Muir Beach and went weekly. We didn't mind the lines could be long--the food and service were not good. Brian the guitarist... More

I'm a complete anglophile, so when I found Pelican Inn..tucked along the windy shores of Muir Beach, all waddle and daub and cozy corners, I was beside myself. That was 8 years ago and I've been a regular guest in the pub and restaurant ever since. But, this last visit was incredibly disappointing. Jim, the bartender there, was as charming... More

We've stayed here 3-4 times and really like coming here. We say it's just over the Golden Gate bridge but it's actually further than that. Imagine that a space ship went to the Cotswolds in England, picked up a charming pub, and then gently plunked it down a half mile from Muir Beach - that's a start. The inn itself... More

We enjoyed our visit and found the staff friendly and helpful. The room was like an English Inn and a pleasant experience. Dinner and breakfast were very good and the service was great. Unlike some of the other reviews, we were very glad we decided to stay at the Pelican Inn and highly recommend it to anyone on Highway 1... More
