This Motel was recommended to us and has not disappointed. We've had an exceptional holiday at the Blue Pelican, our hosts have been very welcoming, informative and helpful, the room, quiet, spacious,clean, well appointed, with every thing that one would need and the bed comfortable. Located opposite to Tweed Heads Bowling Club, close and handy to shopping,restaurants and water. Parking outside your room. We would not hesitate to recommended our hosts and the Blue Pelican Motel to everyone visiting Tweed Heads.

We stay there for 4 nights at peak season. A family of 6 people for $220 a night with a free wifi n onsite free parking n swimming pool would be a best choice for family holiday with limit budget. The room was well furnished with fridge, utensil, microwave, dryer, iron n wardrobe. Well done.

We stayed here after reading other reviews and because the price was reasonable and the location seemed good. Everything was a bit better than we expected. The owners are very friendly and obviously trying hard to make guests enjoy their stay. An easy 10 minute walk to Coolangatta beach and restaurants, the bowls club with good meals across the road and Centro shopping centre 5 minutes away. Rooms were comfortable with a kitchenette, very clean and well appointed. The pool area was not large but was very clean and had a bonus BBQ for guests. Down side was the only window faces out to a shared walkway/veranda, however even though the motel was fully booked this was not much of a problem. It would also be nice to have undercover parking. This is a basic motel but we will happily stay again because of the value for money, and the genuine enthusiasm of the owners.

This was my first stay at the Blue Pelican. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable, The location was good, I could walk to pretty well everything. The room was quiet and I didn't hear any significant road noise.

There is a club over the road for good food and a fast food joint 100m up the road if you just want take away. I ordered the full breakfast to the room one morning and was very happy with the quality and quantity.

Room layout and facilities were typical of a 3-3.5 star motel. I didn't need the free Wi-Fi but I'm sure that would be a bonus for those who do.

Given the typical room rates in Tweed heads, this place was good value for money and can be recommended.

My daughter and I found The Blue Pelican to be in an ideal location. Close to the airport, restaurants and supermarkets 5 mins walk away, a large club across the road and down the road from the Tweed Hospital where we attended job interviews. I found this motel to be quiet, clean and the customer service exceptional.

Stayed 3 nights in 2 bedroom room, during mid December.
We found a freshly renovated motel, close by to all amenities, yet still very quiet, and secure.
On the map the airport isn't far away, but this motel is Not in the flight path, so you wouldn't have a clue the airport is anywhere nearby. You don't hear a thing.
New owners are very friendly and obliging.
Great value.
Have to say I personally found the beds very comfortable, and the accommodation very clean, and well serviced. No problems.
Will be back.. :-)

First time staying at the Blue Pelican, we usually opt for more 4+ star accommodation. Was pleasantly surprised at the overall cleanliness and the fantastic service that you miss out on in the larger establishments. As there are no cooking facilities available, I feel a BBQ near the pool would be awesome. The main bed was a little uncomfortable, but not the worst I've ever slept in. we will returning again. Very happy...
