We stayed here one night during a 15 day California vacation. We drove from Monterey down Big Sur to Cambria. Be sure to stop and visit the e-seals, what a spectacular experience. I was car sick from the winding, arm-rest gripping, yet gorgeous drive. Once we arrived at the inn, everything got better. Michael met us in the lobby. He is a charming and professional asset to the Pelican Inn. A real people-person who cares about the property and your experience there. We ended up with an ocean front king suite. It was really lovely. The living/bedroom area was newly renovated; chic and comfy. Everything, including the fireplace, fridge, and Keurig was sparkling and functioning. The bathroom, including a jacuzzi tub, was a little older, yet extremely clean and very nice. The robes were a nice touch. The hotel hosts a wine, cheese, and dessert social. The presentation and atmosphere in the dining area were so inviting. During the social hour we walked across the 2 lane not-busy road to view the sunset on the beach. Memorable. After the function ended, we went to the pool and jacuzzi. Just the right temps and very clean and relaxing. The grounds and gardens are really beautiful and well tended. The breakfast the next day was delicious with a nice selection and everything maintained at the proper temperature. I hated to leave, but the lure of Hearst Castle got us on our way, so refreshed from our stay here. It was awesome. Thanks, Michael.
