We so enjoyed our stay! The no frills atmosphere was refreshing. We stayed in The Cabin. It was very clean and comfortable. The air conditioner kept the space perfect temp. Wade (the owner) was very accommodating and went out of his way for us.

We stayed here & on the second night 5 people staying next door started talking loud & drinking at 1:30 am. At 2:00 am we told the guy on duty who did nothing! We left at 6:30am & they were still partying! Rooms are bare minimum. I absolutely do not recommend this motel.

The exterior of the Pelican Motel is very clean and unassuming. It is by no means a luxury resort. However, the entire experience from reservations to check-out was a delightful experience. As a frequent traveler, I've stayed in many expensive accommodations which could not compare to the cleanliness and attention to detail the staff at the Pelican Motel provided. It... More

I've stayed at cheaper places that were a LOT better than this. The outside looks like a motel from a horror movie. The room smelled musty and was very dry. We were told not to touch the thermostat because if we moved it at all it would end up like 85 in here. We didn't move it but it was... More

Our rooms were clean and comfortable, with a very friendly and helpful staff who were the owners. An excellent value, with a nice TV, a refrigerator, and a microwave oven, and everything worked well. We would definitely stay there again.

The outside might not turn heads, but once you get through the door its totally different. Out of the motels we've stayed at , this is by far the nicest and cleanest. Our stay was in a double twin room which was very large and roomy. The AC ran great and quiet. The staff was also nice and helpful. It... More

Nothing fancy, reasonably priced, they are remodeling some of the rooms. I would try the new cabin next time. Room was comfortable and everything worked including WiFi.
