Ideal place to stay in Glenelg as its close to shops, beach, entertainment and tram. Very clean room, friendly staff. Free parking which is a big plus. Only complaint is the stairs, very awkward with luggage.

Very expensive for the tiny showbox room that I was given as a deluxe room. Service was impressive-the first time I have ever been walked to my room and showed all the amenities in all the years I have travelled. Bathroom was only big enough for one person at a time in the room. Location was a plus if you... More

Fantastic value for money especially considering the proximity to restaurants, shopping, beach and transport. Five minute walk to everywhere!! Friendly reception staff, who are very helpful. Lovely rooms that are very clean and well equipped with tea/coffee facilities, good tv reception, free Wi-Fi, free parking.

Stayed here 3 nights for business meetings located throughout Adelaide & surrounding regions. The hotel is a bit old & dated but it was immaculately clean & tidy. Greeted by Rob in his suit & tie, shown to my room & explained everything clearly & concisely, including what to find locally - something that just does not happen at hotels... More

On check in we were greeted at reception and made very welcome from the beginning of our stay in in a 2 bedroom sea view apartment. As it turned out it was located off site in the nearby Liberty Towers complex, plenty of information from reception on how to get to the car park and apartment so this was relatively... More

Our room was big and comfortable as well as being right in the middle of the Glenelg hotspots. Brekky was great and there was adequate off street parking. Service was prompt and prefessional. I'll be back here again.

I stayed in deluxe room (tv, couch, table, shared verandah, heating, plenty of towels, comfy bed, & almost double glazing for the ouside noise which wasn't a problem even on Friday and Saturday nights). Had a fun cosy stay. Friendly reception, very kind and warm, and accommodating. The hotel was clean & good looking inside over all and had a... More

The location of the Ensenada is a prime reason for staying there. All rooms are comfortable with everything in good order including the bathroom. The newer rooms at the rear are less inspiring than the rooms at the front and the noise problem from the footpath has been addressed some time ago. We try to stay there whenever we are... More

found room to be small, cramped, dated furniture, overpriced. Windows wouldn't open so that's why staff suggested not opening them! Bathroom extremely small. Great location but internet pictures deceiving

During a recent visit to Adelaide, I stayed 2 nights at the Best Western Ensenada Motor in Glenelg (19th + 20th April, 2015). My check-in before 10.00 am was swift. I was particularly impressed with Mr Rob McBride's efficiency and professionalism at the front desk. My allocated room on the ground floor (I think #3) was very spacious and clean,... More
