We truly enjoyed ourselves here. It had everything we needed. Sam made sure that all his patrons were happy. The towels were plush, the beds were comfortable and everything was spotless. We had a late check in due to a delayed flight and we still...More

This clean, friendly, and centrally located motel has so much going for it: kitchenette, tile flooring, thick towels, great location to malls and restaurants as well as the beach! This is a great place to stay and Sam makes it comfortable, safe, and pleasant!

Sam the owner is wonderfully welcoming and accommodating. The motel is impeccably clean, newly and tastefully renovated, has all the comforts of home, across the street from the beach, conveniently located and you can't beat the price. Recommend wholeheartedly.

I made a reservation for arrival January 27 for 5 nights using Expedia. Unfortunately something came up and we had to cancel our reservation. I called the hotel tonight, 6 days prior to the final cancellation date, and was informed by someone at the motel that the cancellation had to be made through Expedia. I went online to Expedia website, entered my confirmation number, and a notation was displayed to contact the hotel directly for cancellation. I then called Expedia and was put on hold for over 2 hours. Yes 2 hours, with a repeated automated message to "hold on, and someone will be taking care of me soon". I put the phone on speaker... and 2 hours later, still nothing, and I hung up.. I went on TripAdvisor to get an email or website for the Pelican By the Sea Motel, and none was provided. I am angry, tired and frustrated with my whole experience with Expedia and unfortunately the bad reflection on the motel. There has to be an easier way for someone like me to contact the hotel directly and cancel a reservation.
