Quite cosy and clean, great rooms, renovated bathrooms. Walking distance from the mask with many restaurants and only a few minutes drive from downtown. Rooms feature full cable TV and Wi-Fi is included in the price of the room.

Needed a last minute place to stay. Great price with a king bed and breakfast. Outside was great, the bed was amazingly comfortable, but breakfast was a little shortchanged. Toast or yogurt or danish. But overall we liked it !!

This motel was a little better than I expected, given the lower price. It was clean enough although dated, but they are maintaining the place pretty well. The "night window" made me wonder about the neighborhood, but it is a safe neighborhood. Apparently at least some of the beds are noisy and the walls a bit thin, if you know...

For a budget Inn, I give this place a good rating. This is an older piece of property, that they make an attempt to keep up astetics. The room was very clean, the bed was very comfortable including the pillows. This place is much better than some other higher price lodges. The bathroom has been updated and is quite nice....

This was a good hotel to stay in Monterey. You do need a car, though, as the Monterey attractions are one or two kms away. A quick drive to the waterfront brings you to Cannery Row and the seafront attractions there. The hotel was clean and comfortable with pleasant service. Breakfast is provided to all guests as a breakfast bar...

Great little motel, conveniently located, spotlessly clean and fantastic for the price. Really big room and breakfast, although basic was included. We stood at the top of the steps and watched deer wander just below and yet we were an easy walk to the town.

The Pelican is a nice old motor Inn that is just about up to date enough to please everyone. The greeting we had was pleasant & told us what we needed to know, the room was clean but a bit tired looking but it did have a fridge, coffee maker and a fire. This wasn't needed and caused an occasional...

Management response:

Hello, The first thing I would like to say is, I’m sorry you were dissatisfied with your stay at our motel. Secondly, our policy states the we do not offer any baby cribs, roll away beds etc...If you had read through the policy, you would’ve been aware that our motel would not accommodate your needs. Also, even if you make...

Quaint inn, good size rooms, nice variety for breakfast and great customer service! What more could you ask for? Also, it doesn't hurt that it is right at Moonstone beach with gorgeous views! Girls at reception were great...once they knew that my 6yr old loved to collect stones, they were full of tips about hidden locations and even provided containers...
