Both the garden and indoor seating had a lovely English feel to it. We ate inside and the ambiance was English country. Service was just OK and the food was good (“pasties” and shepherds pie). It was the perfect place to wait for our parking time slot at Muir Woods.

Step into this historical hotel and restaurant and escape from your everyday modern routine. Wonderful meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner. Quaint rooms with windows that look out onto beautiful landscape. Very pleasant and helpful staff. Enjoy the common sitting room with fireplace that burns real wood logs.

Step back in time at this charming inn. Looks like it should be in the English countryside. Julie was very good at taking our reservation and finding the right room based on our requests. She did a great job explaining the inn’s history and quaintness. Pamela was there to assist us as well and being a local had lots of information to share regarding the Inn and this general area of CA. Their rate included morning breakfast. Do not miss this. It is served elegantly and was extremely delicious and filling. Their chef is great and he has been involved at the Pelican Inn and its history for many years. This is not a typical rectangular hotel room but a very interesting accommodation with antiques, slanted ceilings and great uniqueness in room style. We had Room 7 which was on the 2nd floor overlooking the lawn. We Loved it. You can get lunch here. You place your order and they find you relaxing inside or outside to serve it to you. Wine and beer is available. Dinner is available in their dining room or covered patio. Very nice experience.

My husband and I have visited this Inn for multiple years to celebrate anniversaries but we never stayed. My husband surprised me with a nights stay for my birthday and I was so excited. I absolutely loved our room and the staff was so friendly. We made reservations for dinner and I had the best T bone steak I've ever had! Everything was delicious. I usually eat like a bird with tons of leftovers but I ate the WHOLE THING! Breakfast was delicious as well- we were seated right in front of the fireplace, it was beautiful. The only complaint I have was the server. She was VERY sweet and friendly but a little overly chatty. I was looking forward to a nice private conversation with my husband but we kept getting interrupted, even when we were clearly mid conversation. It started to annoy me, and my husband told me to let it go. When she inquired on why we were on our trip we told her it was for my birthday. When we left breakfast, we headed up to our room and a short time later, there was a knock on the door. It was her with a delicious apple muffin cake with a candle in it. She brought it up for my birthday and even sang to me. I immediately felt guilty for being annoyed, as she clearly was the sweetest person on the planet. All in all, amazing stay- amazing atmosphere, fun bar, beach a walk away, relaxing private lounge, amazing food. I can't wait to stay here again. :)
