If you need the pull out couch, it was not very comfortable. Linens and regular beds were great . We loved this location . Breakfast was very good also. My only regret is that I didn't schedule us to stay here longer !

Stunning view of the ocean from our full ocean view room. We left our windows open all night since it was a warm weekend so we could listen to the ocean waves, birds and frogs all night long. The cleaning staff did a very nice job keeping our room stocked well and the front staff was very welcoming. The atmosphere...

Very nice location close to the sea, nice buildings, clean rooms, but cardbord plates and cups for breakfast is definitively a no go. Hence, price performance ratio questionable. Two restaurants nearby where you don't have a chance to eat before 9:30pm without reservation!

We had read a number of reviews on the Pelican Inn which were very favorable. The hotel did not disappoint. We had an oceanfront room with a great view. The hotel is on moonstone beach which is very scenic and great to walk on. The hotel is also only 10 minutes from the Hearst Castle. The room itself was large...

Everything was good front desk staff could have been a little more pleasant. Location great close to 2 restaurants. Room a little small but nice. Breakfast ok but no soy milk and throw away plates bowls cups etc both my husband and I very upset but it seems to be the norm in most hotels in America.

There was bird poop near our room on 2nd floor. Not cleaned on either day we were there. Breakfast was very good and people working there were very nice and helpful. The location was perfect. The only drawback was the bird mess.

excellent place to stay except for the poopy swallows on the car, but that can't be helped. Just parked the car elsewhere. Staff was excellent and room was always clean. Great view, but weather could've been better. Windy for 5 days!

Stayed here with the wife for her 40th birthday. I have to say, I wasn't terribly impressed by the Hotel's outdated decor and small room size. I expected more for $300/night. For someone who isn't a local and never gets to spend time at the ocean, perhaps the view from the room's patio would have made it worth the inflated...

Everything was wonderful. However, we were looking forward to the wine tasting experience only to find out that it was no longer being offered to the guests. The complimentary breakfast was delicious!
