Great motel. Nice neat rooms with little kitchen, microwave and plates etc. Comfortable beds. Terri & Bruce couldn't do enough to make us feel at home. So central to everything. Walking distance to Bowling club and RSL for meals and Woolworths supermarket, just walk through the picture theatre across the road. Vline bus stops out the front. The pool and...

We stayed 4 nights and were very happy with the room. It had a kitchenette with a microwave, bowls, plates, etc. so you could duck up the road (one street away) to Woolies and buy breakfast items, bread, cereal, milk, etc. if you wanted. Parking was a breeze right out the front of the unit. It also caters for buses...

Our family of 3 including our teenage son used the Pelican Motor Inn based on a previous stay there and good recent reviews. The room was spacious and clean, the beds comfortable and the bathroom about right for the standard of the motel including a good shower. We did have concerns however when it came to the wifi or lack...

Not the best accommodation I've come across, through no fault of the management. Rooms were clean and well maintained. However, there is something about them that makes the rooms seem small. We made the mistake of taking a balcony room and suffered from smokers, some rooms away, the balcony space drifting smoke into our room and forcing us to close...

Stayed two nights for a family function. Came away disappointed. 2 nights of very little sleep due to hard beds, so much so that at least 3 of us had sore backs on the last morning. Weren't given an opportunity to use the wifi which was advertised. Was charged more than we were quoted, which was very disappointing.

Any of these issues could have been mentioned during your stay but each time we saw you or your party it was mentioned everything was fine. We apologise if you found our beds uncomfortable, we purchase quality beds and get complemented regularly on the quality sleep our guests have.

Enjoyed our stay. Very comfortable, clean room. With its central location and price, it would be hard to do better for the casual traveller. Management were quite helpful with advice on local facilities.

The "Pelican Moyor Inn" is a well located and well run motel situated in the middle of town and handy to everything. The room was spotless and kept that way by friendly and capable staff.
