First and foremost, we have to say that the service was impeccable. They seemed a bit short-staffed at times, but everyone was very professional, helpful, and hustling to keep guests happy. The bar staff in particular we found delightful. The food, which we were looking forward to, was fine but not great. I had hoped for a little bit better.... More

I don't know if this is always the case, I want to say, because we found out when we were checking in, that the receptionist had just left that morning - but the service was very poor. We waited a long time to get checked in and in the end, they bought us our paperwork in the evening. Also, I... More

I had a fantastic time at the Inn when I stayed there and was seriously considering this to be a place were I would return year after year. However...I had pre-paid my room and when I got home, I realized that they had charged me again for the same night. I have sent several emails, left many messages with both... More

An Englishman and his 2 children happened upon this "English Pub" with accommodation close to Muir woods and far from the standard American hotel experience, with pictures of the UK's Royal Family adorning the reception area walls. Polite staff made us feel comfortable and at home, unfortunately we'd reach LA before I realised I'd left an expensive watch in our... More

My family and I have been enjoying this inn ever since it opened about 30 years ago. Recently, it seems to have changed hands. The front desk staff are clueless. We were charged twice for a room; they promised to take it right off the bill, but 10 days later, it is still there and I am disputing it through... More

I arrived just as they were closing around 10 pm, and they were very accommodating. My room was clean and comfortable. Complimentary breakfast was excellent. All the staff were very friendly, and as an ex-pat it was a little bit of home from home. I definitely intend to stay again!

The Pelican Inn is far too expensive for the quality they offer. We had a small room, with a small, dingy shower. Breakfast and dinner quality was reasonable. Convenient spot to stay if you want to visit Muir Woods or Muir / Stinson beach.

We visited with friends who lived in the UK 25 years ago and who are very fond of this place as it reminds them of that time. It was indeed like stepping back into the 80/90's thanks to the decor, the pub menu and the pictures of Princess Diana. The fish and chips were not great - they were all... More

Pub and rooms in on old English Country Pub located about half mile from Muir Beach which was easy walking distance. Charming Inn, great food and quaint small pub complete w darts and a fun and salty bartender. :) We were there on a Friday night, ate on the covered outdoor seating area which was nice and the food was...

After our hike at Muir Woods we stopped in for lunch and a drink. Busy place, but well worth the wait! Food is excellent and ambiance is even better! Just like in England! We had the fish and chips, bangers and mash, and Shepard pie. All were very good. They have a great assortment of beer as well.
