With so many places to choose from its hard to know which to pick so we relied on TripAdviser again and we're glad we did. The motor inn is tidy and clean, not new but everything you need. Heating was good (temperatures were very cold outside), the bed was comfortable and the room nice. Local advice was invaluable and we... More

We just checked in for a night stay, we were offered lots of local information, fresh milk for a tea and a late check out. Very welcoming lady in the office, the room is very clean and comfortable. Close to the main street, we will be back! Lovely views of Merimbula

This was a clean and comfortable motel in a great location. The manager was so helpful recommending where to eat for dinner and breakfast - both were excellent. We were only there overnight and as there was a cold snap I was terrified that I would freeze but the a/c worked amazingly well and was actually quiet so we could... More

Stayed here for two nights , its in a great location close to cafes and restaurants.The staff were helpful with their local knowledge. The rooms are basic and a bit dated, but they were clean and comfortable. We only paid $100 a double per night, which we think is great value for a clean comfortable motel in a great location....

Stayed for 2 nights in April. Lovely rooms that are well maintained and very clean. Off street parking. Management very helpful. Very quiet even though it's on a main road. Walking distance to shops and the clubs. Would definitely stay again when on a short break in Merimbula.

On our recent inaugural iBMW Australian Rally 2015 I suggested we all stay at the pelican inn. 20 bikes stayed, it was fantastic. Off street parking, clean well appointed rooms, great showers ,friendly accommodating staff, great room rates. Bowling club over the road, service station across the street. I was very happy with our choice to stay there.

We stayed here over the Easter weekend with 2 little kids and loved it! Amazing service, the owners were very friendly and gave us so much information about things to do upon our arrival. Very neat and well maintained rooms. Definitely recommend!

We only wanted a motel walking distance to the centre of Merimbula for the restaurants shops etc. We booked the Pelican Motor Inn totally unseen and unheard of , as it was just the distance to town that we wanted we just grabbed it. We weren't disappointed at all. We were given room one and even though it was on... More

This is a well maintained ,very comfortable motel in a good situation in Merimbula. The owner was very helpful with suggestions as to where to eat, visit and stop over for the next night. Loved the bird life with singing Bellbirds, and parrots visited the balcony. Would certainly stay here again.

We stayed for a night in the Pelican motor inn while on a road trip from melbourne to sydney. Merimbula is a beautiful little town on the sapphire coast and the Pelican was a perfect host to us with its good location, easy parking, comfortable beds and considerate hosts who guided us to a late dinner place (Duci's - offered...
