Stayed here for one night on my way up the coast. After a long drive I was made feel very welcome by the motel owners. The room was good quality, clean, very quiet and was very good value for money. The pool and spa was also very inviting to, just a shame I didn't have time to use it. definitely... More

Great little motel with basic facilities but everything was clean & maintained well. Showers are good quality & beds comfortable. Parking wasn't a hassle even during a peak period & no issues with noise from the surrounds. Über friendly & helpful managers. Would recommend this place as a nice cheap alternative to the super expensive beachside hotels. It can be... More

It's close enough to walk to the beaches shops and restaurants if you don't fancy driving. The motel was spotless and very comfy and quiet even though it's on a main road. Across the road is a cheap place to eat and drink and the staff couldn't be more helpful as when we stayed even though we had booked out... More

We stay there for 4 nights at peak season. A family of 6 people for $220 a night with a free wifi n onsite free parking n swimming pool would be a best choice for family holiday with limit budget. The room was well furnished with fridge, utensil, microwave, dryer, iron n wardrobe. Well done.

We stayed here after reading other reviews and because the price was reasonable and the location seemed good. Everything was a bit better than we expected. The owners are very friendly and obviously trying hard to make guests enjoy their stay. An easy 10 minute walk to Coolangatta beach and restaurants, the bowls club with good meals across the road...

My daughter and I found The Blue Pelican to be in an ideal location. Close to the airport, restaurants and supermarkets 5 mins walk away, a large club across the road and down the road from the Tweed Hospital where we attended job interviews. I found this motel to be quiet, clean and the customer service exceptional.

Stayed 3 nights in 2 bedroom room, during mid December. We found a freshly renovated motel, close by to all amenities, yet still very quiet, and secure. On the map the airport isn't far away, but this motel is Not in the flight path, so you wouldn't have a clue the airport is anywhere nearby. You don't hear a thing.... More
