“Excellent value for money”
Reviewed 15 December 2012

Stayed here for business this week. Hosts Bruce, Terrie and Maggie treat all guests as friends. Rooms have recently been refurbished and all have reverse cycle heating and cooling. Pool and spa are well maintained. Motel is quiet and within easy walking distance of all facilities. Hosts are well versed with local restaurants and tourist attractions. Thanks.

Room Tip: Ask the hosts for a room that suits your needs.

We stayed here on Dec 8-10, this year for a christmas get together. What a great location, great facilities, and wonderful hosts. The room was located at the back and was clean, and well appointed. The Motel is VERY Motorcycle friendly. We will be back again., Thank you

We had a nice stay at the Pelican Motel , the rooms was clean and comfortable. We requested views of the lake, which we received but it also overlooked other units, the car park and the lake view was above the back of another motel. This is a great little motel if you are on a budget and want to stay in the center of town.

The Two Wheels Magazine Xmas Party has been held 4 times in the last 5 years at this motel and the facilities keep improving year after year. Hosts, Terri & Bruce, cannot do enough for us and we cannot recommend this Motel enough. Good rooms with new bathrooms, a great pool and Spa with a wonderful function marquee...

Brilliant value for money and good people in a fantastic location.

We just stayed one night so booked the standard room. It's everything you would expect from a motel. Rooms were clean, staff friendly and helpful.The location is great, very close to the centre of town.
Good for a short stay.

I went with a Probus Group to Merimbula for 5 nights on a seniors tour. We stayed at the Pelican Motor Inn and did day trips everyday. The hosts, Bruce & Terrie were so involved and could not have been more helpful, the interaction was fantastic. I have been on other tours before and hardly even seen the hosts. The location of the motel was excellent, we could walk to town and the clubs in minutes. Would definately recommend the tour to other groups.

Good value and great location right in town. Basic rooms with all necessities as expected from a motel, however the rooms were extremely well kept and the staff were friendly.
