The staff are very friendly, there are 5 private baths with unlimited soaks. The rooms are each eclectic and vary in decor. They are comfortable and very reasonably priced. Only downside is if the spa is busy then you may have to wait for soaks in the baths and only one room has a private bath. We stayed in that... More

Smack in the center of T or C, this colorful spot is hard to miss. My son and I enjoyed our soak in the cozy spa, and our stay in the funky old room in PAM (Pelican Apartment and Motel, one of several options here). Staff could not have been more friendly or helpful, and the place was spotless yet... More

We stumbled upon this amazing town as well as the Pelican Spa. They own 3 properties...the Red Pelican, the Pink Pelican, and this one. The rooms were comfortable and colorful, and the staff was very helpful and kind. Wonderful hot, mineral springs baths and a quiet courtyard to sit in afterwards. This is a most charming place with everything you... More

We've stayed in the Gallery, Loft, Aqua, and Pink #1. Although the Aqua has the tub in the room, it's right next to the desk, so not worth it. But every other stay was great. It's usually a quiet place and if you know the right times, you don't ever have to wait for a soak. The staff are nice... More

The Red Pelican had excellent reviews online but was dirty DIRTY when we arrived in person. The amenities to the LOFT left something to be desired. The idea of a gigantic space was appealing but when we arrived, the room was hot, fridge wasn't plugged in, the art work was wretched and didn't match, there was only ONE of everything... More

Your expectations will not be exceeded. I have stayed at the Pelican properties a number of times, it's quirky, convenient, whimsical, inexpensive and not much more. Do's: Do check out your room before moving your luggage in - my most recent stay required three room changes before a suitable room was available. The first room, Pink Pelican #8 had a... More

I feel like I just stepped back in time at this brightly colored family and pet friendly motel and spa in downtown T or C. The tubs and rooms are clean with a laid back beachy feel that reminded me of Morocco...if Morocco was in Miami and Miami was on Route 66. Our room was down an alley from the... More

Not a relaxing environment. The staff seems overworked. The tubs are uncomfortable. They are made of cement and have no seats. If you are frail or physically challenged you will have an extremely hard time getting in and out of the tubs. If you are looking for a nice quiet place to relax this is not the place for you.
