I have passed this hotel many times and noticed it as it stands out from the outside. We stayed here on a Saturday night and would recommend it, given its location, it was not too noisy at all (but we did have the fan on all night) rooms have been refurbished and the beds are amazingly comfortable. The sink in... More

The outside a little dated, but it is managed very well. The room I was in suited me well for the purpose of my trip. I will not hesitate in staying there the next time I visit Glenelg, and the surrounding beachside suburbs. Thanks Ensenada Regards Brendan

I booked here at short notice. While the staff were fine and the room functional the proximity of the hotel to the tourist end of Jetty Road and with a park opposite there are no end of late night revellers. If you are a light sleeper go elsewhere. Additionally car parking is tight.

For the past 5 years my wife and I have spent a couple of weeks each year in Glenelg S.A. At first we rented an apartment. We then moved to the Motor Inn because of its more central location. Restaurants and shops are within 5 mins walk, as is the bus station, the terminus for the tram to Adelaide, and... More

Originally I tried to book direct and was told there were no rooms, but when I rang the Best Western number I got put thru to a lady in the USA who had no qualms about a 1 night rental. We arrived just after 8pm to find it all locked up and hard to get into so for security concerned... More

Dear Annabanannake, Thank you for your review. We value all feedback as it assists us to improve our product and service. The reason we did not provide you with a room when you rang us direct was that our receptionist realised we did not have a room suitable for and adult travelling with a child. That is why the room...

The good: Comfortable beds and very close to the beach and where the action is in Glenelg. The bad: Very old fashioned and in dire need for a makeover, so unless you like the grandma’s kind of style you should probably look elsewhere. Strict 10am check-out time. And the awful: Very noisy rooms facing the busy road right outside. A... More

Dear SoloWorldTraveler, Thank you for your review. All feedback helps us improve our product and service. You noted our great location, close to everything and where the action is. Unfortunately, with such a central location comes crowds of people attracted to the shops and beach. This does create some pedestrian and vehicle noise however we have had all our rooms... More

Great stay, value for money. Comfortable clean rooms. Perfect location . Very pleasant helpful staff. Close to airport 15 minutes in taxi. Great breakfasts. Feels safe. Bit of street noise in front rooms but got used to that after first night.

We got what we were looking for. A decent value for money room You drive in for free parking in the hotel courtyard, as others have said the spaces are tight, but they were acceptable The rooms are small, but adequate. We left early so did not take their breakfast. I probably would not want to stay a week here,... More

You are on a budget? You have good location, with car park available, security, just a stroll (not even 5mins) to the beach, shops, pubs, restaurants, tram is right there, if you want to go the extra with view to the ocean and beach then maybe look at the Stamford or the Oaks Hotel. But overall it is a very... More
