the place is made up of three or four different close by buildings. All safe. Great colourful rooms clean, funky, tidy, spacious. Wifi worked great, Hot water baths lovely. Not much dealing with the staff as we stayed only one night, but all friendly and helpful. Great value for money. Sorry that we had to leave after only one night.

We have been staying here for the last decade, without a doubt the most reasonable and well appointed hotel in T or C. The proprietor has great taste in art, tons of it, furnishings are funky and eclectic, and the price allows for multiple days in this special place. In the last year or so we have noticed the pelican... More

The room was clean and the baths were kind of funky and simple. However if you have any problems climbing up into a bath, you might not be able to get in the tub. There were no steps and no foot stool for assistance. I barely was able to make it in the tub. Unfortunately the beds were very soft... More

The Pelican Spa has several different types of rooms and we stayed in the two story building across the road from the spa. Many of the rooms had kitchenettes where you could prepare a meal if you are tired of eating out. The spa area is reserved for guests and there is unlimited use of the hot springs baths. The...

We chose this to spend the night because another was booked up. We wanted a place that welcomed the dog, had hot spring baths, and space. It is old, but renovated into brightly painted rooms, hot tub rooms, kitchen, lounge, Asian-style gravel courtyard, and local artists' work. If you are looking for fancy or luxury, go somewhere else. The soaking... More

I was really impressed with the Pelican Spa. My 2 kids and husband decided to take a quick trip to Truth or Consequences for a couple days to enjoy the hot springs. We ended up choosing the Pelican Spa because they allowed kids (some of the spas in T&C don't allow kids) and because the room prices were pretty cheap.... More

This hot bath spa is an excellent weekend escape; perfect place to unwind and relax with a beautifully landscaped court yard and friendly staff. The rooms feature minimalist second hand furnishings and there were no traditional spa services (i.e. massage), which may be a draw back for some, but in my opinion this contributed to the atmosphere of solitude and...

I absolutely love this place. I have stayed two times now, and both times have been ultra rejuvenating and nice and quiet. I am impressed with the accommodations and really REALLY you can't beat the price. The only cons are it isn't the fanciest place, but hey, I didn't want that, just wanted somewhere to recharge and have some time... More

The staff are very friendly, there are 5 private baths with unlimited soaks. The rooms are each eclectic and vary in decor. They are comfortable and very reasonably priced. Only downside is if the spa is busy then you may have to wait for soaks in the baths and only one room has a private bath. We stayed in that... More

Smack in the center of T or C, this colorful spot is hard to miss. My son and I enjoyed our soak in the cozy spa, and our stay in the funky old room in PAM (Pelican Apartment and Motel, one of several options here). Staff could not have been more friendly or helpful, and the place was spotless yet... More
