On arrival the owner, Terri spent several minutes with us pointing out walks, eating places, points of interest etc. on a map which she provided. The room was comfortable with good quality bed linen and towels. It was a family room but she only charged us the rate for a double.

Very friendly staff, great knowledge of the area with great food and activity recommendations. Only free to air TV, the only minus on our overall pleasant experience in a $120 p/n room. Excellent amenities. Would stay there again.

Friendly staff all round, spotless room, quiet considering that it's so close to the shops. great location walking distance from shops and the boardwalk. You could easily... More

We enjoyed our recent stay at the Pelican Motor Inn. The rooms were easily accessible, clean and well maintained. The owner was very hospitable and gave me an ice pack when I mentioned that I had a headache. She suggested some places to visit and we felt comfortable staying there.

We stayed at the Pelican Motel for a few days over the New Year and we will defiantly be returning for a longer period next New Year. Our room looked newly renovated was very clean, great size for the three of us and had enough for us to make a simple meal when we didn't want to venture out for... More

As a one night stop heading up to Sydney this place worked fine. Being a little nervous of motels you are not always sure what you may get but our reception on arrival was warm and friendly by the lady receptionist (and the lovely dog) and she was more than happy to humour us in a little conversation after our...

I cannot recommend Pelican Motor Inn highly enough. The staff were fantastic. The pool was a solar heated saltwater pool that was devine. Terrie and Bruce were wonderful hosts. The position, you can't go past it. We barely used our car on this trip due to the location of the hotel. The Beds were really comfy and the kitchenette was... More

We stayed here on our way through to Lakes Entrance and after reading reviews and getting prices decided on the Pelican Inn. The owners were away during our stay but the woman on reception greeted us warmly and was very friendly and helpful. The room was pleasant and clean, the shower was hot and there was plenty of water pressure.... More

I stayed here for 1 night and found it very comforting that the host asked me if I would prefer to stay around in the courtyard area as it would feel more secure, as I was on my own. Very thoughtful host, very clean motel, good value. Thanks for a lovely stay. I have put sleep quality as very good,... More
