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...

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.

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.
