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

Very pleased with our stay. Room was clean and had a beautiful view of the bay. The Main Street is just around the corner. Cinema is across the street as well as a good selections of restaurants. Went to pier one for dinner which was lovely as well. Would definitely stay again.

I had a 2 night stay and was very happy. The staff are friendly, the rooms very clean and provide all the basics you need. The wifi was consistent and didn't slow despite the hotel being full. They are also touring motor bike friendly. They do have rooms which overlook the Lake which you may want to request, however mine... More

My husband and I booked an overnight through Booking.com and he was very impressed by the helpful and friendly lady at check in. (I didn't accompany him) The room was spotless and all that we needed but I was a tad disappointed with the "balcony" - was just the walkway to the room. Some rooms do have balconies and lovely...

Stayed only one night and as it was quiet he put us in a balcony room which had great views over Merimbula. Motel was very central and walking distance to everything, Bruce suggested places to eat, some nice walks and things to do while we were there. Rooms was spacious, comfortable, quiet and clean. Really enjoyed our stay!

I had read the good reviews on Tripadvisor - so when I needed a motel on the drive back from Melbourne to Sydney, decided to give the Pelican a go. I've stayed in many Motels throughout Australia, and I have to say that the Pelican is what you'd expect from a good Aussie Motel. I rang a few hours before... More

Stayed for one night only on my way north for work. Quick check-in with Bruce, very friendly and helpful. Room was very clean and the bed very comfy, with a decent kitchenette. Great shower but the bathroom needs a fan. Motel is in an excellent location, only a short walk to restaurants, post office, banks, supermarkets and the infamous Boardwalk.... More

We needed a crash pad on the way home from the snow and chose the Pelican Inn. They ticked all the boxes. It is a motel, so it's not the Ritz, but lovely Dianne had the room warmed up for us on arrival ( it was a cold week), the bed configuration was good, comfy beds, clean, quite and a... More
