“Clean and comfortable on the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Maybe it's just because I grew up on the East Coast, but almost any affordable hotel/motel at the beach usually came with outdated furniture, dingy conditions and lackluster amenities. Not so at the Pelican Shores! I was here on business and was pleased to find immaculate rooms. The paint was fresh, the linens were crips, there was not a speck of dirt in the bathroom, and the carpets were clean and new. The decor was tasteful and simple. I loved the shampoo/conditioner/shower gel dispenser in the tub and also appreciated that the towels did not feel like sandpaper. My room was a good size, with a great view of the ocean. The heat in the room worked like a charm. I enjoyed the offerings at breakfast (yogurt, cold cereal, oatmeal packets, bagels, pastries, milk, juice, coffee, fresh fruit, etc.) and the staff kept it replenished although it's only available from 8am to 10am. The staff were extremely helpful and even printed our boarding passes for us! Each room has its own DVD player which is nice - you can rent movies in the lobby. There are also board games available! I didn't use the pool but it appeared well kept. The vending machines were pretty barren but it was off-season so I suppose that's to keep the stock fresh. Anyway there are a lot of great places to eat nearby (I especially enjoyed Mist - affordable, delicious and a great atmosphere and view, all in walking distance of Pelican Shores). I highly recommend this property.

View and location is great. Breakfast had a good selection of muffins, yogurt, cereal, fruit, oatmeal, juice an coffee. Pictures on the website are very misleading. Building is pretty run down an old. Rooms are fairly thrown an pieced together. Beds squeaky an uncomfortable. Pool was absolutly ran down and not Appealing at all!! Over priced but friendly staff an good Location.

We spent 3 nights at the Pelican Shores over spring break this year. It was a wonderful time enjoyed by our entire family. We requested a room with a fireplace and that made the chilly evenings great! Our five year old daughter loved the pool each evening, as did my husband and I. This hotel is located as close the beach as you could get and makes for a fantastic family trip! We highly recommend Pelican Shores when traveling to Lincoln City!

Spent two nights there in May 2012. Stayed in a queen studio with an ocean view. Room contained a microwave and a small fridge. Room was not fancy, but clean, spacious and well-decorated. View of the ocean was great and there was an easy access from the hotel to walk on the beach. The continental breakfast was hearty enough. We found the staff to be very helpful with suggestions for local dining recommendations. We loved the cookies put out at night. If we come back to the Oregon coast, we will definitely stay here.

This hotel is very clean and the staff was very helpful. We stayed in a room that had a seperate bedroom and living area, which worked well for our family of 3. The kitchenette has a fridge and stovetop, which is very convenient. The hotel has wonderful beach access, and this portion of the beach is not crowded and very clean! Only thing to note- the contiental breakfast is very limited, so if you are a big breakfast eater, you may want to eat out, or make a run to the grocery store.

We would definitely recommend this hotel, and stay there again!

Convenient, right on the water and clean. Staff helpful and friendly. Stayed during an off weekend in May...no vacancy, mostly occupied with adults. 3rd floor room only has window you can open to hear/see the ocean. 5 rooms on the ground floor have sliding doors with patio that can open directly to the ocean. Reasonably priced. Breakfast included.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms on the ground floor with patio's if you want to be truly ocean front.
