“Really great beach hotel - would definitely return!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2010

I stayed here for 3 nights in September...loved it! It was my first trip to the Oregon coast and I'd definitely stay here again. I got a king suite with a sliding glass door and patio area mere steps down to the beach. LOVED the sound of the ocean waves all the time!
The hotel is not a super posh hotel but is a very nice and well-kept beach hotel. I went to the grocery store for snacks and light lunches and there was a fridge and microwave in my room which was a huge plus. Very centrally located on the coast for day trips south or north and the staff were really friendly. My room was unfortunately next to the icemaker which got a bit loud during the night so perhaps they could move it elsewhere so as not to bother guests? Overall I would definitely stay here again! :-)

We had such a great oceanfront room, The ocean can be seen and heard from your room. The King size bed was very comfortable, and the continental breakfast was a wonderful option. This was our second visit and we`re sure to reccomend it to friends!

I stayed here exactly one year ago and wrote a review about how I wanted to stay longer. So when I planned another trip to the coast for this year, I booked three nights at the Pelican Shores. Everything was just as I remembered it! The room was exceptionally clean and well kept. The staff was very friendly. And the view out my window and easy access to the beach were awesome!

The bed linens were so soft and clean and comfortable. I had a great night's sleep every night, serenaded by the sound of ocean waves through my open window. And I love the toiletries they provide! They even have shower gel, shampoo, and conditioner dispensers right on the wall in the shower.

I really feel lucky to have discovered this gem of a place!

Took a chance and read trip advisor, booked a room for week of Sept 12-17 at Pelican shores. Very nice place for the price. Nice view, nice staff. Hotel is not new, but they keep up on it. Rooms are clean. Free breakfast every morning/paper. Rolls, bagel, fruit, milk, cearel etc Hot coffee, cocca. Yogurt. Good selection.
They also put out cookies every evening.. so after a walk on the sands, you can enjoy a cookie and some coffee.....

Arrived in Lincoln City on a rainy, cool day in June 2010 from Astoria. Our mood was already a bit down from the bad weather and bad photography opportunities along the coast. This was bound to change when checking into Pelican Shores Inn. The room was huge, actually a Suite with living room, kitchenette, and bedroom. And the best: there was a fireplace in the living room, so after this cool rainy day we had a relaxing evening with a book in front of the cosy fireplace.

View was spectacular onto the beach and the Pacific ocean despite the bad weather, I can only imagine how gorgeous a sunset from the room or the porch of the hotel must look like on a sunny day...

We stayed at the Pelican Shores Inn for 4 nights commencing August 19th. We chose it because of positive reviews on Tripadvisor and we were very satisfied. Lincoln City is an excellent choice for Oregon coast travellers. Not only does it possess miles of beautiful beach of its own, but it is very central for day trips to other parts of the coast. We took 10 hours our first day travelling south to the sand dunes near Florence, stopping at every possible point of interest. The next day we did the same thing heading north towards Cannon Beach. On the third day of our tour, we relaxed on the Lincoln City beach, shopped the outlet mall and took in the Chinook Winds casino at night. It was a truly great trip.
The Pelican Shores Inn was a very positive experience for us. We stayed in a one bedroom suite with a kitchenette. The view of the beach was awesome and every night we left the window wide open and let the ocean lull us off to sleep. It was fantastic! Our room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. They also had two BBQs for guest use and not many people use them. We grilled steaks the first night there and were very pleased at how clean and convenient the BBQs were.
Pelican Shores offers a continental breakfast each morning which was more than adequate. Fresh pastries, fruit, yoghurt, bagels and coffee, just to mention a few things.
Although there are plenty of restaurants around, people who prefer to cook for themselves can easily do so and there is a very good IGA grocery store only a couple of blocks away.
We have no hesitation in telling people to head for LIncoln City and the Pelican Shores Inn. We look forward to returning.

And oh yes, the pelicans flew by every morning just offshore. Awesome!
