A small locally owned motel that has been remodeled and kept clean. this would have been average years ago but in this age of motels owned and run down by middle eastern owners it is nice to sleep in a motel that has beds and linens that are not worn out and dingy. The staff were friendly and helpful when...

We stayed here on a recommendation from my aunt (and an open room, due to a cancellation) when my husband and I drove up for a family get-together at her lake home. When checking in, the manager informed me that he just took over ownership/management and wanted to make sure we had a good stay. He also offered a couple...

We so enjoyed our stay! The no frills atmosphere was refreshing. We stayed in The Cabin. It was very clean and comfortable. The air conditioner kept the space perfect temp. Wade (the owner) was very accommodating and went out of his way for us.

We stayed here & on the second night 5 people staying next door started talking loud & drinking at 1:30 am. At 2:00 am we told the guy on duty who did nothing! We left at 6:30am & they were still partying! Rooms are bare minimum. I absolutely do not recommend this motel.

The exterior of the Pelican Motel is very clean and unassuming. It is by no means a luxury resort. However, the entire experience from reservations to check-out was a delightful experience. As a frequent traveler, I've stayed in many expensive accommodations which could not compare to the cleanliness and attention to detail the staff at the Pelican Motel provided. It...

I've stayed at cheaper places that were a LOT better than this. The outside looks like a motel from a horror movie. The room smelled musty and was very dry. We were told not to touch the thermostat because if we moved it at all it would end up like 85 in here. We didn't move it but it was...

We are sorry to hear you were not satisfied. We take great pride in offering clean, safe, reasonably priced lodging and we truly value our guests. We have new thermostats and heaters in the rooms and have the thermostats dialed in so they work as they should now. We regret that the thermostat in your particular room hadn't yet been...

Our rooms were clean and comfortable, with a very friendly and helpful staff who were the owners. An excellent value, with a nice TV, a refrigerator, and a microwave oven, and everything worked well. We would definitely stay there again.

The outside might not turn heads, but once you get through the door its totally different. Out of the motels we've stayed at , this is by far the nicest and cleanest. Our stay was in a double twin room which was very large and roomy. The AC ran great and quiet. The staff was also nice and helpful. It...

Nothing fancy, reasonably priced, they are remodeling some of the rooms. I would try the new cabin next time. Room was comfortable and everything worked including WiFi.
