Quaint inn, good size rooms, nice variety for breakfast and great customer service! What more could you ask for? Also, it doesn't hurt that it is right at Moonstone beach with gorgeous views! Girls at reception were great...once they knew that my 6yr old loved to collect stones, they were full of tips about hidden locations and even provided containers... More

The size of the room is greate but it is located next to the main road so it is noisy Breakfast is minimal and the hotel is far from the town center so youmust drive thereand find a parking (for payment).

Stayed here one night during a trip down highway 1. It's pretty close to the main highway in, and a 10 minute walk to the town centre. We were disappointed to see that almost every hotel in the area had a pool, but there isn't one at the Pelican. Also, the breakfast is very basic, with no waffle machine (unlike... More

We went for a night and found this hotel before our planned trip. The main road near the hotel is noisy, the rooms are standard rooms. The room was clean and the bathroom was clean. The room has a microwave and fridge was a nice touch. The bed was comfortable. It is an old hotel, so make sure that you... More

A sweet little motel.... Quiet and clean. A fairly easy walk to the Wharf! Purchased tickets for the Monterey Bay Aquarium at a $10 discount! Nice and helpful folks at the front desk... They even provided us with a map of the area! We will stay there again!!!

The hotel was clean, cozy, friendly and close to the wharf and 17 mile drive. Little outdoor area was great to just relax and enjoy the provided continental breakfast. Del Monte shopping center was close.

Older motel, but very clean and comfortable. Perfect for a one night stay in an expensive location. I'd stay here again if the need arose. The air conditioner drowns out the traffic noise. Breakfast does not start till 8:00AM so I can't comment on it. About a mile walk to the Wharf. Some of the parking spots are "compact" so... More

Stayed for one night & was pleasantly surprised. Staff very friendly. Very basic, but a good sized clean room, with working TV & Internet, decent bathroom & massive bed. Nice little garden area. 5 minute walk to the mall, lots of shops. Under 2 miles to the seafront but we drove as it's quite a steep hill to get back.... More

This is a great place to stay, we stayed on the first floor. We were not sure what to expect when we drove up, but this place was a very quaint and extremely clean hotel. The staff was pleasant and the room was larger than most hotels that we have stayed in. It was conveniently located, not to far from... More
