“First Choice in Lincoln City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

I have stayed several times at Pelican Shores and would recommend it to anyone. I typically visit during the winter months (love the storms!). Prices are very reasonable and there's a view from every room as it sits right on the beach. The rooms are clean and it is very quiet at night. They have a swimming pool that is kept at a comfortable temperature and is always clean. They have a complimentary breakfast which consists of muffins, cereal, fruit, danishes, milk, juice, coffee, and tea. The rooms vary in type -- some have fire places, kitchen with or without ovens, two rooms, single rooms, etc. They all have free wi-fi access. They have a coin operated laundry room on site. The staff is warm, friendly and helpful. The knowledge of what is going on around the area helps those of us who visit. The main reason I keep coming back is due to the staff. They know what service is and they treat the customer special.

Room Tip: There are three levels. All rooms have a view. The bottom level has no noise from the parking lot an...

This small property sits right on the beach. All units have a wonderful view of the ocean. A few units have small patio's to sit out on an enjoy the sunset/view. My room was a double queen room - clean, spacious and nicely appointed. The beds were very comfortable and the sheets and towels didn't have that "hotel" gross smell - they were soft and smelled nice.

Complementary breakfast was typical but good. Can sit in the small lobby and enjoy cereal, coffee, bagels, pasties, orange juice, milk all while looking out at the beach.

My unit also had a kitchenette (I didn't use it) and for longer stays (I only stayed the weekend) that would be handy. They also have a decent but small selection of DVD's for rent in lobby.

The location is central but super quiet at night. I didn't use the pool but lots of others did and they seemed to enjoy it.

Staff was very nice. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Any room is a good room. Only 6 units have patio's but all have ocean views.

Great place to stay in Lincoln City. Beach access from our very large room. Renteed this room for two and ended up with a room with one king bed and an adjoingi room with two queen beds another bathroom, dining area, and another tv!

An older motel but kept up very nicely. Right on the beach and very clean. We would stay there again. Continental breakfast could use some improvement. We recommend the 1 bedroom suite with the separate living area and kitchenette.

Excellent location. Pelican Shores Inn is a great place to stay. Clean facility, friendly staff...... being from Texas along the Gulf Coast, I was surprised there was no A/C in the rooms. A box fan was provided. We enjoyed cools temps of September on our visit, but, wonder about summer time? Regardless, I recommend Pelican Shores Inn when visiting Lincoln City.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Pelican Shores. The room was updated and very clean. The front desk service was very accommodating as well. Only thing was that we thought that we were getting a ground floor room with a patio like the pic shows, when in fact the ground floor is 2nd level, and the patio rooms are down another level. All in all a wonderful time was had by all!

Room Tip: If wanting room with patio make sure this is requested. You may get ground floor which is second le...

This old timer is right on the ocean, we had a suite with a queen sofa bed and a bedroom. The sofa bed was not bad, no bar across your back and the view was the best. Sunset was perfect every night of our stay. Go during a holiday and the casino down the way will put on fireworks and you get a beach to yourself to watch them.
