I found this motel by chance .. Looking for something small and not too expensive with off street parking .. Not too far a drive from Flinders Uni .. However I was more than pleasantly surprised. The owners are friendly and the rooms are small, clean and very comfortable and but there is everything you need. The room was very... More

I was in Adelaide for a friends funeral, so this was pretty much a booking based on proximity to both the airport and the places I had to be. It was a pleasant $20 taxi ride from the airport, and, since I was arriving after the 8pm reception closing time, the key was left under the mat for me. The... More

Pleasant good value place to stay. Room was clean, with facilities for making tea/coffee, microwave, toaster and fridge. Walking distance from beach and Jetty Rd. Staff friendly and welcoming. Good advice regarding available tours.

I like to be fair with my reviews. And to remember to mention the positives of places I've stayed at. Sometimes it is very hard. In the case of the Norfolk Motor Inn, it is simply impossible. We'd stayed at the Adelaide International Motel for a few nights but they were booked out and we needed to stay on in... More

I should have heard the warning bells ringing when the staff offered to better the already low agoda.com price all too easily. I now know that all the reviews on agoda that said how friendly the staff are, were clearly written by the staff themselves. The hotel is way out of the main area of Glenelg, even though the staff...

We stayed there in June 2013. Rooms were very basic, small but clean. Contained good features like good hot water, en suite, heating, tea/coffee making, Bar fridge, microwave etc. compared to other small sized motels. Walking distance to lovely Glenelg beach and has an IGA close by. Overall good value for money.

Let me start with the good points. The hotel is well situated near cafes and Jetty Rd. Right that was quick now the bad. At $115 a night there is far better value. If I had viewed the room before I would have spent $40 more and stayed somewhere decent. The room was small and tired. I don't think it... More

Exellent friendly serviced, clean tidy room, walking distance to cafes and pubs. Plenty of free off street parking. Quiet. Left in peace. An indoor table would have been great to sit at for breakfast.

My wife and I stayed at the Norfolk Motor Inn on our wedding anniversary. We found the place to be very welcome, clean and the people running the show were very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this place if you have a budget and are looking at staying at a beachside location.
