“When Can I Return?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Pelican Inn and Suites so much. The room was large and well-appointed, with comfortable, cozy decor. The grounds were lovely, too; we enjoyed the variety of flowering plants and unusual succulents. The hotel's location is fantastic, with the beach right across the street. We could smell the wonderful salt air and hear the surf from our room. I would gladly return here and recommend the hotel highly.

One tip: Request a second-floor room so that you can enjoy the balcony and leave the windows open at night if you wish.

Very comfortable, clean, friendly staff, buffet breakfast constantly being refreshed, lovely location across the street from the scenic Pacific Ocean and close to center of town. I'll make a point of returning to Pelican Inn on my next visit to beautiful Cambria. A bit expensive, but worth it.

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon, and we really enjoyed our stay. We will defintely come back there. Waking up to the beach was amazing, and so beautiful. Walking along the boardwalk was a very beautiful experience.

Stayed here before. Love the little amenitiesand extras, like the dessert and wine in the evening and the full breakfast in the morning. Wonderfully placed , with a cliff side board walk closeby(just walk across the street) and good restaraunt within walking distance. The office will gladly help you reserve dinner almost anywhere in the area. Very nice , helpful staff.

We enjoyed our stay at the Pelican Inn in Cambria. Very nice room, very clean, quiet and functional. View of the ocean from our balcony. Hotel itself very attractive with lovely plantings.The included hot breakfast was quite good, hot dishes, waffles and many other choices. the staff were very friendly and helpful. For dinner are two very good restaurants within a five minute walk along the Beach. The best part... Instant access to the boardwalk along Moonstone Beach with fabulous California coast views and amazing sunsets.

After a few nights of traffic noise we were looking for somewhere with a water view and peaceful surroundings. The Pelican Inn was just the place. You want to be on the second floor for better privacy. The room was very spacious and clean albeit decorated with a broad range of towel animals. A short stroll along the waterfront showed us sea otters and close quarters. A perfect place to stay on this coastal route.
