“5 Star based on Price to Expectation Ratio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

I LOVED this place! Yes, it is kind of funky. We stayed in a great room with a full 50-s style kitchen (if you don't mind the kitchen being literally right next to the bed.) The bathroom was TINY but we didn't need it with the public baths. (We were only here 1 day.) The sitting room had a great Formica table. Only problem was the Cable went out, and there's no solid internet there. And the pillows were TERRIBLE.

The 5 baths are each unique, though there's lots of noise filter through the walls, it's still really nice that it comes, for free, with the room. There was an incredible, large sitting room that I never saw anyone use. There's also filtered water, hot and cold, and a nice outdoor sitting area. This place was very inexpensive, and yes, it's not the Ritz, but it has character and is very much worth the price.

Highly recommended if you like funky and quirky. If you like high end spas, you may want to stay somewhere else.

I try to work in a spa vacation at least once a year and for the money this is the best. Rooms in the main courtyard are quiet and secure. Folks forget that winter time is great for birding around the Dam and the lake. Pelican Spa allows for a pleasant retreat from hiking or other physical activities. This is a vibrant color and retro do which is a pleasant retreat from the run of the mill motel room. You never know what will pop out to serve your visual curiosity. Who would expect an old time projector in the bathroom?

Room Tip: If you come in the winter, make sure you have a heater. Some rooms have combo ac/heater. Others do...

From the wonderful staff. To the beautiful grounds. To the warm & healing-the-soul tubs. To my awesome room - the Persimmon Suite. I could not have been happier. Eager to return and stay in the Asian-themed rooms, over in the Red Pelican. Fun Times! Thank you Pelican Spa!

My first time ever going to any hotsprings/baths type place....it was fantastic! We were lucky enough to get the Aqua Room. Very clean, smelled good, staff was super. SO relaxing and fun! A perfect weekend getaway...will go back as soon as possible :)

The Pelican Spa private hot springs is our favorite destination for numerous reasons!!!! We love the all the colors and the personal private space was what we needed after our long day of hiking and mountain biking!!!! The privacy of having your very own hot spring all to yourself who could ask for more!!!! ;) The wonderful therapeutic hot springs offered us good health and happy times!!!!

This was our second visit to the Pelican Spa and it was a wonderful stay. I've never been anywhere like it. We were the only guests for the night we stayed and we were in the Aqua room that is located inside the main building next to the office. The room was clean and decorated in a fun funky fashion and had it's own soaking tub. The staff was friendly and check in was super easy. This place will always be our choice when we are in T or C!

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper the Aqua room may not be the best choice for you because of the noise fro...

The Pelican is pretty unique. There are several buildings taking up a couple blocks. Two friends and I stayed a night there in a very colorful, large clean room which included a kitchen. The decor is funky, bright and tacky. But it really works. The community room is really well done and comfortable. You can walk to anywhere in town as ToC is so small. The hot springs tubs were a nice treat and included in the price. As a side trip we headed up to Elephant Butte at night to watch the stars. Beautiful. The host was a bit brisk and abrupt; however, we enjoyed our stay.
