“Some minor shortcomings, but still a great place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

This is an older motor inn, but it's a clean and well-kept as any other facility in Lincoln City. It's located in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood with private beach access. The room in which we stayed was spacious, spic-n-span clean, and comfortable. Did have two minor problems - the wi-fi worked, but would not connect to the Internet, and the water in the shower ran hot and cold. We received a letter from the management staff apologized for the problem upon our return home.

For guest who are going to spend most of their time down on the beach, this is an incredible value - clean, well-kept properties with a competent staff aren't always the rule in Lincoln County in ANY price range.

I stumbled upon Pelican Shores a couple of years ago, It was a last minute getaway and found a vacancy. It was amazing to find a reasonable price directly on the beach!

Pelican Shores has so many nice things about it, like a guest laundry area, sand toys right there in a bin outside the building available for guest use. I loved the ability to see the water at night due to their spotlight illuminating the beach, and only 30 feet to the beach with their own stairway beach access. Everything in the room is always as clean as can be.

Every time I think of going to the beach now, I check for vacancies at Pelican Shores. There are no bad or mediocre rooms here - only oceanfront view rooms.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms. All rooms face the ocean with windows cleaned every day for a perfect view.

Came to Pelican Shores for a two day getaway, this place is right on the beach. Enjoyed the stormy weather from our cozy place with a fireplace! Had the window open so we could hear the ocean. Staff was very nice and helpful! Continential breakfast was good, muffins, fruit, cold & hot cereal, yogurt. Always had hot coffee available. Room was clean and comfortable, will go back for sure!! Very close to Chinook Winds Casino

Room Tip: Floors on upper level have better view of ocean, but no patio.

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.
