We hadn't stayed at the pelican in about 5 years until last month. We knew to get ocean view but had forgotten just how great it would be. It's such a short walk to the sand, groceries, etc. We don't look for luxury accomodations, just a clean, inexpensive room in which to eat, shower and sleep. We did pay a... More

This is an older hotel, but the rooms were very clean and spacious. We only stayed one night , but we had a good time at a great price ($111 for a Friday night). Lots of places to eat and shop nearby. This is not four star but we found it clean and close to the beach.

This place has definitely been here a while long before most of the condo projects were ever thought of. It is right on the beach but also has a nice pool. Our room was updated with new carpet and the bathroom had new tile and fixtures. We were on the third floor and had a great ocean view. No elevator... More

They rent to locals who appear to attract the police, who came to the hotel several times. No thanks on staying here again. Rooms also had roaches. We priced rooms in other hotels for next year and found some cheaper and nicer.

Great ocean front location and a good overall value. Clean! Nice staff. Convenient to shopping and restaurants. Nice walkability to plenty of places too. The only thing that could be improved would be sound absorption between rooms. We had very loud people above us who made it difficult to sleep.

Older hotel but just felt at home, not like upperclass snobby locations. If your looking for 5 stars stay elsewhere. If your looking for a good value with a great location this is your place. Our room was clean, roomy and perfect for us. We had a second floor oceanview with double bed, sofa, chair, coffee table and flat screen... More

We stayed at The Pelican for a large family gathering in August 2013. Our group had about a dozen rooms. I understand all rooms are being renovated. The room my wife and I stayed in had been updated and was perfectly adequate for our stay. A couple rooms had not yet been renovated and were not pleasant primarily due to... More

This is a small motel near the end of North myrtle beach. Although this motel is quite old it was clean. Right on the beach, near restuarants, near a large grocery store. The rates are unbelievable! I would stay here again.

First time here a few months ago. to my surprise the room was soooo very clean with a kitchenette. Good rates and within walking distance to grocery store across street and a really cool bar which was literally next door! Will be back! thank you for a nice stay!
