Palm Desert, California

Pelican Cove Inn is a B&B a couple of blocks from the ocean and easy walking distance to Carlsbad Village. The beds are covered with comfortable, warm featherbeds and each room also has a gas fireplace. The tile on the bathroom floor and around the fireplace are original and are very unique. Nancy, the owner, is very helpful and she...

Found this place online when looking for a bed & breakfast. Loved our stay! Our room was cozy and comfortable with great amenities! Breakfast was delicious, this was a convenient location, onsite parking, and the owner was very friendly and offered good local recommendations. We will stay again when in town!

Pelican cove B&B is full of charm. It is old-fashioned but well kept-up only one or two blocks form the sandy Frazee Beach. The owner who is very present and hands-on, is the star attraction. Nancy's warmth and hospitality are the most frequent things mentioned in the guest journals in every room. Every room is different. Nothing canned or corporate...

I stayed at the Pelican Inn for 2 weeks this January. I booked because of the great reviews it had received, and it lived up to those reviews. First, a shout out to Nancy, the proprietor, who is a wonderful host. I had a delicious breakfast every morning, homemade by Nancy. The room I stayed in was lovely and comfortable,...

I've been staying at Pelican Cove Inn 2-3 times a year for several years now. It is great! I can't say enough about Nancy, the owner and host. She is welcoming, warm and friendly, and helpful in so many ways. Breakfasts are always tasty, and there are always freshly baked cookies on offer. Then there's the location--perfect! Only 2 blocks...

We loved our stay at Pelican Cove. It has a great location - walking distance to the beach and to the charming village of Carlsbad. Lots of great San Diego places that are a short drive away. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were really good. And Nancy was a delightful host. She provided very helpful local...

This B&B was great for my stay of 3 days. It is convenient walking distance to the village and to the beach, while close enough to the freeway for ease in traveling farther. It is located in a quiet neighborhood. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were awesome, as were the homemade cookies. The host is very accommodating.

My husband and I stayed at this gorgeous place in the end of October, 2015. We loved it! We stayed in the room named, Laguna. It has windows on 3 walls so the breeze in our room was perfect.

We stayed for just one night. Loved it. It's two short blocks from the beach, close to shops, and has only 10 guest rooms. The grounds were lovely, with lots of flowers that attracted hummingbirds and butterflies (it was September). We stayed in the cozy Balboa Room. We were in Carlsbad on Labor Day weekend and the bars and restaurants...

If you like mass processing and anonymity then booking a normal hotel room is a good choice. But if you like the coziness and warmth of home away from home, then Pelican Cove Inn, where the motto "come as a guest and go as a friend" on the lobby wall aren't just empty words, is a very good choice.
