The staff of Pawley's Pelican outdid themselves AGAIN! As breakfast and lunch are included in your stay, the girls do a FABULOUS job! From a breakfast spread of Bacon, ham, sausage, eggs, grits, sweet bread and fruit... FABULOUS! The dinner (mid-day meal) could include Low Country Boil, Fabulous Fried Chicken, Ribs, Beer Bread, salad, and fruit. And don't forget the... More

The Pelican Inn continues the great tradition of guest houses, inns from Pawleys' past. If you remember The Tip Top, The Cassina you'll love The Pelican Inn. It's like summer camp for the whole family. The rooms are comfortable, neat, clean. The bathrooms are shared. You should bring extra towels and beach chairs. The food is past wonderful with a...

This is the best B&B I have ever stayed in. The food is crazy good and has inspired my husband and I to try out some of their dishes. The fried chicken is AMAZING! The key-lime pie is out-of-this-world good. The sheets feel fantastic, the decor is adorable, and this place is clean. The family who owns and runs this... More

We had the most fantastic relaxing stay for 5 idyllic days and nights at the Pelican Inn. The food was gorgeous, fresh local produce and traditional South Carolinan cuisine. Everyone staying there seemed relaxed, friendly and welcoming, sharing the large comfortable living room during a storm or chatting in the hammocks on the cool wide veranda. Corinne and her daughters... More

very cozy place for a wedding reception. however, the back yard was amazing. as you walked the man made boardwalk you are amazed by its surrounding when all of a sudden you end up on the beach. spectacular!

I have been to this inn many times over my lifetime. It is a treasure. "Communal" is the word to describe the Pelican Inn. First of all, breakfast and lunch are served family style on the great enclosed porch, and it is delicious. We enjoy meeting new people, so this is great. It has a very "summer camp" feel. There...

My wife and I had a great time at the Pelican Inn. The location is beautiful. The food is amazing. The owners are very nice. The property is full of history. Overall it was a very relaxing trip. You don't necessarily have the most privacy. Some rooms have a shared bathroom and others have their own; but that didn't deter... More

The Pelican Inn is wonderful! I have been vacationing there since I was little and now take my own kids there along with our extended family. The perfect spot if you want to spend your days on the beach or relaxing in a hammock. Rooms often have a shared bath, so it's perfect for families. The Taylors are gracious hosts... More

Our stay at The Pelican Inn was a wonderful experience. The marsh views from our room #8 were beautiful. The bed was very comfortable and there was good AC. The private bath was roomy. I loved lounging in the hammock on the gazebo overlooking the beach as well as in the hammocks on the porch. The meals were delicious with... More

This is a B&B not to be missed. It will remind those who remember the beach before commercialized everything, and bring them back to coming to the beach for the enjoyment of the beach! The inn itself harkens back to an earlier time of simplicity(no TV, radio, etc) with the comfort of A/C and comfortable bedding and probably the best... More
