Again for our 3rd stay we were extremely impressed! We will never consider staying elsewhere in Cambria! The Pelican Inn & Suites is a perfect location as well as the total site so as to relax by the ocean!

Nice rooms with great bed. Nice breakfast, Great location on the waterfront. Don't bother getting partial ocean view or ocean front as all you see are people and cars up and down in front of hotel. You are so close to ocean, I mean just yards away just stay in a regular room. Nice fireplace in room. Open the window...

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is fantastic for beach, restaurants, sight seeing and relaxing. Carpet and furniture a bit worn but didn't affect our stay. We would recommend this place to friends.

We had a great time and the accommodations were excellent. The staff was helpful and kind. We had the sink stopped up and the plumber came by that night to make repairs. It got fixed the next day. The bed was hard

The only issue we had was too much air freshener in our room upon return in the afternoon. We chose not to have our room serviced on the second day. My husband is very sensitive to smells. We had to air out the room!!

Our ocean view suite provided everything we needed for a relaxing weekend. The weather was cooperative as well which is always a bonus. The suite is well appointed, clean and comfortable.I only wish that you were a dog friendly hotel.

The Pelican Inn & Suites was fantastic—the prefect get away to a beautiful location. The staff was wonderful and the complementary breakfast was the ideal start to a day exploring the local area. The suite was excellent size and included a great balcony that overlooked the ocean.
