The Pelican Inn is one of several reasons. The rooms are so comfortable, clean, and the best is welcoming you instantly. June the manager, and the staff make your stay effortless for you and they are so pleasant. The Jacuzzi and pool areas are very nice, clean and well attended to. The grounds arent too big, but what they have...

The Pelican Inn is such a great hotel, with great service. We loved our walks in the morning on the walking path right by the beach - so relaxing. We booked the two bedroom suite which is great for a couple with kids. This is a perfect place to relax and enjoy a glass of wine by the beach. We...

The Pelican is our favorite property in Cambria. The property is reasonably priced, the rooms are extremely comfortable, clean and quiet. The staff, including the people who work around the grounds and clean the rooms, etc., are very welcoming and friendly. Each and every one of them ALWAYS gives us a cherry hello and they mean it. Easy to male...

We have stayed here a few times. Right across the road is a great walking trail along the coast with beautiful views. Get an ocean front room well worth it. Breakfast included.Quick drive to Hearst Castle or to see the elephant seals.

I love this place. Moonstone Beach Drive has lots of nice looking hotels that overlook the ocean but this one really caught my eye. My room (311) had a patio with very comfortable padded chairs. Sitting there, listening to the waves was such a treat. Thinking that the sunset would be muted because the sky was cloudy and there was...

Stayed at this inn again after several years away. Wonderful experience with EVERY employee. The front desk folks were wonderfully friendly, helpful and accommodating. The hot tub was delightful and the 7-10 am breakfast was wonderful. The room was spacious and the bed was wonderfully comfortable. I will definitely stay here again!

Our favorite place to escape is Cambria, Ca. And the finest place around is The Pelican Inn & Suites! The Pelican Inn offers Beautiful Ocean view rooms and suites. With full complimentary breakfast. They used to have an evening wine social but no more. THEY NEED TO BRING IT BACK! This is a fine place to stay.
