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.

We got to T or C for a hot springs weekend every year and have tried a number of the hotels. We found the Pelican Spa to be inexpensive, especially when you consider you get free unlimited soaks in the tubs. We liked the fact that the tubs are private and you put your own water in so you are... More

What a wonderful experience! Our rooms were beautifully decorated, clean, spacious, and inexpensive. The staff was cordial and professional, and it is dog friendly. The spas are private, clean, and nice and hot. I can't wait to go back again.

What a wonderful experience! Rooms were beautifully decorated, clean, spacious, and inexpensive. The staff was cordial and professional. The spas are private, clean, and nice and hot. Next time I'll splurge for a room with an in-room spa, even though the spas in the main facility were great. I can't wait to go back again.

The Pelican Spa is a quiet, out-of-the-way place in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. We had the occasion to spend the week-end there Jan. 23-Jan. 25, 2015. The rooms are painted with wild colors. Ours was red living room, lavender bedroom and kitchen with a red-orange bathroom. The art hanging on the walls is interesting and just as wild. If... More
