Decent hotel, good location, very close to mall and not far from downtown. Room fairly nice, with fridge and fireplace. Plumbing was a bit sketchy, and noisy. The cleaning products used left a strong odour.

Very dated interior. Could use extensive renovation: bathroom, flooring, ceiling, and walls. Insufficent parking (arrived after a late dinner one evening, and couldn't find a parking spot. Unacceptable!).

We would use this hotel again if in the area
We used the hotel as a base for a two week stay in central California. We were able to journey out for a number of day trips to local attractions. We also left the hotel for several days to visit L.A and San Fran. The hotel is an older structure, tucked off from a main street. It is short distance from Monterey Bay (whale watching and aquarium), Fisherman's wharf, and local historical buildings There is limited public transportation in Monterey, so having a car is important if unable to walk a mile or two, The bed, linen, and towels were excellent and the room was comfortable. We had a fireplace that used a manmade log. This was a nice option on the cooler nights The furniture is older, but overall the room was in very good repair. The price point was reasonable. The flower boxes, outdoor seating area, and overall appearance ion the hotel is inviting. Office staff were able to provide assistance and advice when asked about attractions. Maintenance/cleaning staff were very friendly. The hotel is within 5 minutes of hwy 1. We were looking for a cozy, smaller quiet hotel/motel. Pelican Inn met our expectations.We were not looking for an expensive five star hotel, we wanted a centrally located hotel/motel, and this met all of our needs. There were nearby restaurants for breakfast etc., but we usually made our own breakfasts using the fridge and microwave, Finally the shower was excellent

Excellent Budget Motel
Was looking for couple of nights budget motel in Monterrey; booked through Expedia based on some online reviews. Overall much better experience than expected, considering fairly low price. Rooms are nice and clean, with nice fridge and microwave. Beds are comfortable and facility is just pulled enough from the main road so it is quiet. Note that Monterrey Harbor, Fisherman Wharf and Downtown are only 15 minute walk down the street Will definitely book here next time I am passing by.

Extremely noisy heater
Heating had disconnected thermostat (wireless), first guy didn't do anything, second guy fixed it. But the heater itself made noise like a truck engine. It woke me up every time it turned on during the night. Bed linen had some half-washed stains, hair under the first layer of sheets. The bed sheets didn't reach all the way to the end of the bed so my feet were on the mattress itself since I am 6'5". It is what you pay for I guess, not sure where they got that high average rating.

A stay during COVID
My stay was just for a day. Covid makes it harder since you have to stay outside when checking in. The noise from cars makes it harder to hear the person checking you in. The only real downside is they don’t have coffee in the rooms and the soap/shampoo are liquid in the shower and next to the sink.
