Although a little dated this motel is very clean and comfortable. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Meals were easy with the Bowls Club across the street.

I stayed at this motel as a stop over in Tweed Heads.

Several weeks out I had seen a special rate of $69 p/n on the internet... ended up paying $80 as a walk-in off the street.

The rooms have been updated in a simplistic fashion.

The reception staff are friendly and helful.

Overall a basic motel that serves the purpose of providing a clean and quiet motel room for a short stay.

Room Tip: Despite being on a main road it's not a noisy location. Upstairs at the rear of the block is the...

A clean and well equiped room, comfortable double bed and great location for coolangatta beach and transport links. Also just a short taxi ride from coolangatta airport so a perfect stopover for early flights.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2011

We were after some last minute accommodation at a reasonable price. The Blue Pelican at $105 was exactly that. We were not expecting a lot but we enjoyed our stay and in the same circumstance would stay there again.

The bedding was great (I hate bedspreads) with triple sheeting. A very comfortable bed as well, Spare pillows in the wardrobe. The bathroom is a bit tired however was clean and that is what is important. The Blue Pelican is in a good location and is walking distance to a great fish and chip shop which is situated the other side of the Centro Shopping Centre from the Blue Pelican.
