When I was in the process of trying to book a room for myself and my husband last week - I called the Pelican and got their voicemail - I left my phone number, name and the reason I was calling. Hoping to get a call back on availability etc. Never received a phone call but when I was at... More

We just returned from a wonderful three night and four day stay at Pelican Shores in Lincoln City. We have been staying at this great hotel for many years now but they have outdone themselves with this remodel. Our room was comfortable and clean. The mattress was comfortable. I had requested a few things for the room because my husband... More

We stayed at Pelican Shores this last weekend as our first trip out with our baby. The room was nice, *loved* the fireplace! The view was amazing, couldn't have asked for better. The access to the beach was very easy and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Our only complaints were that the renovations didn't seem quite complete. The... More

This was one of our favorite hotels on our trip to the Oregon Coast. We booked early and scored an amazing price for two nights in an oceanfront room with the most amazing view! We were on the lower level and didn't have a patio out front but we were content to just sit in the room and enjoy the... More

The hotel is right on the bluff so the view is brilliant, get a room with ocean view cost a bit more but so worth it, being able to enjoy the beautiful sunset while staying warm and dry in your room.......priceless!.....lol the access is also just a few steps down to a lovely part of the beach, without needing to...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel along with another couple for one night. We were traveling down the highway towards CA from Portland and this accommodation fit into our itinerary. We had 2 queen beds on the lower level. It worked with clean, comfortable accommodations and got us back onto the highway quickly. The price was certainly right.... More

We are so sorry that you weren't completely satisfied with your accommodations. We are in the process of a large remodel that includes new decks, an elevator to the upper floor, updated breakfast area, and new decor in all the rooms. We hope you will give us another try if you are traveling to the Oregon Coast. More

Visited the hotel over the labor day holiday, really enjoyed the pool with the kids - although the hotel is right on the sandy beach and sea shore, the ocean was just a bit too cold. Great for ocean view and walks on the beach, flying kites, etc. Staff was very friendly! Trip was very relaxing and refreshing - hope... More

We chose the Pelican Shores Inn for a trip to celebrate our 40th anniversary. We couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. It sits on a bluff so the ocean views, including the sunsets, are spectacular. Steps take you to a beautiful part of Lincoln City's long white sand beach. It is a short drive to easier beach access... More

We reserved 5 rooms in October as part of an office celebration. There was a tour bus at the same time so we were only able to reserve 4 ocean view rooms but that was our problem for not reserving more in advance. The view couldn't be better and access to the wide beach was down some stairs and you're... More

Thank you for having your office celebration at Pelican Shores Inn! In the remodel we are redesigning the breakfast area to better accommodate our guests, and adding sliding glass doors and decks to most rooms. We are very sorry your rooms were warm during your stay. The sliding glass doors will all have secondary locks that allow the door to... More

There are probably many places to stay in and around Lincoln city that offer similar views and accommodation but Pelican Shores is special in terms of hospitality, standard of housekeeping and convenience. You are right on the beach on a totally quiet road yet, it is possible to walk to shopping and restaurants within a few minutes. The small lobby... More
