My happy place
always enjoy our stay at Pelican being across from Moonstone Beach. Staff friendly and helpful. Rooms could use updated flooring...out with the carpet and in with wood floors. 😊

I will never go back.
Hotel is over priced. The rooms are not that clean. The carpets are very stained and smelled. Our comforter also had a big stain in the middle of it. (Didn’t use it) The hotel has a lot of wear and tear. They were overbooked and we had some issues with that. They tried to make up for it but soured our weekend. We had 2 rooms and stayed 2 nights and spent $1200. It was not worth it. One positive was the breakfast was not bad.

Excellent location, just across the street from the beach. We got the patio option, which was nice on the sunny days. Bathroom could be improved (towel rack was broken, water flow in shower wasn't the best, sink drained quite slowly). Amenities were nice. Beautiful 60-70s style wood furniture and lamps.

Location is great and easy enough to walk around. Only complaint is the lack of cell phone service.
