“Right on the beach”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

The property had direct access to a clean and sandy beach. We arrived late afternoon and found staff very friendly and helpful. We had a great beach view from our upstairs corner room. It was quiet and very comfortable. I was disappointed we hadn't scheduled more than an over-nighter here.
Parking seemed tight, but likely all the rooms were booked when we arrived. We did find parking in the hotel parking lot.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms are likely quieter than those below, but there are no elevators.

Stayed here for our anniversary. Had a king room on the second floor. Very clean and full ocean front. Slept with our window open to listen to the waves all night and enjoy the sea breeze. Staff was awesome. We would absolutely stay here again.

we met friends at the beach and all stayed at Pelican Shores in connecting rooms. The rooms were all clean and patio views breathtaking. The staff is incomparable, from the front desk to the housekeeping staff, each one was professional and genuinely caring. Will definitely be a repeat customer. Thank you again for a great getaway.

Room Tip: get one with ocean view

We stayed for 2 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. Upon check in the two ladies at the desk were very freindly and helpful. We stayed on the first floor and had an amazing view. It was a basic motel room with a frig and microwave. We met some of the housekeeping staff while passing through the hall and they smiled and said hi every time. The guy in the morning was very professional and told us about some great things to do while we were here.
The only thing we didn't care for was the breakfast, lots of prepackaged items.

We have stayed here before. This time was as wonderful as the first. The staff is all very nice. The view is wonderful. Wifi worked great. Breakfast is nice. Fairly quiet and the parking is never overly crowded. Easy walk to beach. We had a small problem in our room and it was handled very professionally! We enjoy that it is no pet. Rooms are to be re done soon and I can't wait to see the changes!

Room Tip: I think they are all equally great.

Green Features: Seem to be doing great at this. Bedding is not changed everyday and towels I believe are at request.

Room was clean, bed comfortable. Only thing is the patio level isn't very private. Very close to your neighbor when sitting on patio. Bathroom is small, however, shower is nice with convenient shampoo, conditioner and body wash dispenser.

Room Tip: Stay on 2nd floor.

Unbeatable view. All rooms ocean-front facing!

What we liked:
- the pool, even if they are missing a few chairs / long chair there, and the towels provided are way too small
- beach access
- staff was helpful but not always friendly / smiling
- kitchen and cookware (in the Fireplace suite)
- blankets available to go to the beach, as well as a few sand tools/toys for kids
- possibility to do campfire right there on the beach!
- place was clean, they even did the dishes for us on the second day!

What we disliked:
- super loud water pipe noises
- shower kept going from boiling hot to freezing cold
- the fireplace was not working (probably because it is summer) but this wasn't mentioned anytime during reservation or check-in
- they provide shampoo/conditioner and soap in great quantities but the shampoo is terrible
- mattress is probably a bit old, or at least wasn't conformable for us. I know it is often a matter of personal preferences, but that one was way too soft and full of holes.
- the "continental" breakfast is kinda of a big joke

Overall a good place. We have been there twice and would most likely return.

Room Tip: Try to ask for a room as far left or right but not in the middle of the building (beach access, lobb...

Green Features: Well, they said that if you keep the towels on the racks they wouldn't change them, but they did. We wanted to avoid changing towels barely used, but they changed them.

Thank you for staying with us! We are very sorry that there were a few issues during your stay. We have a remodel planned in the fall that includes additional sound proofing, updated showers, new fireplaces, all new beds, and a new continental breakfast room. We hope you will come back and see our new look.
