“Absolutely the best! 10 out of 10 stars!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2006

One of my gal pals decided to fly into Texas the weekend before 4th of July at the last minute, and the Brown Pelican happened to have an a room for us! Chris even called to let me know a room was available in spite of the inn being completely booked (my request was through e-mail).

A beautiful and exclusive place for singles (gal pals like us), couples, and families (with kids 12 and older, thank goodness). The inn is very peaceful and very quiet!!!!!!!!!! Exceptionally clean, passing my white glove standards, lol, seriously.

We stayed in the Laguna Atascosa room which is the most popular. We had a breathtaking view of the water, and watched the most beautiful sunset (and sunrise) from our window with the better view from the balcony--which made the whole trip worthwhile being that we wanted to get away from the city life. Not much to do on South Padre island itself but the Brown Pelican is a place to stay to unwind and rejuvenate.

The best I've ever been to. Chris, the innkeeper, was very nice and is a lady of elegance.

  • Liked — Children aged 12 and over are invited (I love my peace and quiet)
