Thank you so much for review The Pelican we are happy to hear you enjoyed the spacious room and the wonderful amenities. The ocean views are priceless. Hurry Back Soon!

The location is the best thing about the hotel, it is right across from the beautiful Moonstone Beach. The rooms are paper thin, we were woken up several times throughout the night from neighbors walking around, flushing toilets and taking showers. I was expecting more for the price. The bed was comfortable, but our room was not clean and needed some repairs. The black out curtain was ripped and the slider door needed some repairs to lock properly. There was some trash left in our refrigerator and we had an empty roll of toilet paper checking in. With COVID restrictions in place, I was expecting more, especially for the price we paid for an upgraded room. Sadly, we will probably stay at another hotel our next visit to Cambria.

We enjoyed the room and bed was wonderful. Was surprised there was no air conditioner though. Weather did cool later for sleeping. But that will be a consideration next time we come that way.

It's everything you'd want from a stay on Moonstone Dr. It's literally across the street from the wooden walkway along the ridge overlooking the beach, and there are easy stairs down to the beach. The hotel is well-landscaped, the room was indeed a suite, and a nice little balcony where two can sit and watch the sunset. Buffet breakfast was slightly above average, and certainly acceptable. Small critique is that water pressure fluctuated while showering, and we had a few momentary bouts of cold water. But it's a minor issue.

From the moment we arrived to checked-in, we were greeted with professionalism and outstanding customer service from Chris. He made us feel comfortable from the first hand shake to handing us our keys and cookies. The landscaping of the grounds was beautiful and the rooms very clean and comfortable. The view and proximity to the beach and boardwalk can't be beat. The breakfast was absolutely delicious and the staff were warm and welcoming. We will definitely stay here again and recommend the Pelican Inn and Suites to our friends and family.

Beautiful beach view

Ideally located right across from beach - which has a really great boardwalk - we loved walking daily. Great Breakfast. Thin walls, could hear neighbors, bathrooms/showers need updating. Close to Hearst Castle, plenty to see do in Caycous, Morro Bay and especially San Luis Obispo. Staff was wonderful.
