My husband and I stayed at the Pelican Inn and Suites on a trip along the coast from LA to San Francisco. As we had never been to the area before, Pelican Inn and Cambria was a great stopover point for our leisurely drive. The Pelican Inn was quaint and clean. The beds were very comfortable and the bedding very up to date.We loved the room/hallway furnishings and in the winter, the fireplace would be great addition. We booked a partial ocean view room and partial would be the key word here. Yes, we could see the ocean but you had to step clear out onto the little "porch" (barely big enough for two chairs) to see it. One thing that surprised us was the lack of air conditioning. I know this isn't unusual in California but we were unaware. We were there on a fairly warm day and we remarked that in the summer, the rooms could be hot. We opened the door to the hallway and our door to the outside to get a breeze to blow through. There was also a ceiling fan. The door to the outside didn't have a screen so all night we were sleeping on the first floor with a partially opened door. Not the most secure setting but it did provide us the relief we needed temperature wise within the room. The parking was "adequate" but very, very tight for our building in terms of number/size of spaces as well as the space required to pull out and maneuver. When we came back from dinner at 9 pm we had trouble finding a parking place. It would be nice if each room were assigned a space. The breakfast buffet was the usual fare, adequate to start your day. Access to the beach and boardwalk was great. Spent most of our daylight hours there. The reception staff was helpful in giving us advice on places to eat. We would definitely stay here again but would be more specific on our room requests.
