My husband and I were exploring the San Diego area for a possible relocation. We wanted something close to the beach, but also convenient to the Interstate and shopping. Tripadvisor led me to check out the Pelican Cove Inn. I spoke with Nancy the Innkeeper over the phone and her warm personality led us to believe this would be a great place to stay. It was absolutely perfect for us! We stayed in the Pacific Room and my brother stayed next door in the Del Mar. Our room was HUGE with a family size seating area next to the fireplace. The bed is a four poster feather bed and I needed to use the stool to climb onboard. The bath is large with a wonderful soaking jacuzzi tub.
If you're in need of a large shower, this one may be a little small for you, but the rest of the room is spacious with lots of closet space as well as a dining table with chairs. The photos on the website do not do justice to the actual accommodations. Nancy prepared a different breakfast for us each day. We had scrambled eggs and french toast and bacon and she even came up with scotch eggs in honor of my husband's UK heritage. She loaned us her Thomas Guide to help us get around and even loaned us her umbrella during our one day of rain. It's a short couple of blocks to a beautiful walking beach where you can eat fish and chips and watch the surfers. Another block over and you're in the village of Carlsbad. A quaint , lovely town with a train running right through the middle. I can't say enough about Nancy's attention to our comfort. If you're lucky, you'll get to meet her dog Lucy. As you can see, we highly recommend the Inn and are looking forward to our return trip.
