My wife and I stayed at the Ensenada Motor Inn 28-5-2014 to 1-6-2014. The motor inn is perfectly located in Glenelg, right in the main centre of everything. The Motor inn has been recently renovated and looks great. The motor inn doesn't have a restaurant, not needed as there over 45 places to eat within a 50 metre radius of... More

this place is charming. The staff dont give the best Welcome, prefering to ignor you while they complete what they are doing for someone else. A "Hi, be with you in a moment" would go a long way. But once you are being served all is fine. Staff walk you to the room and explain everything. The rooms are good,... More

We stayed here for a weekend in May/June 2014 and although it is an older hotel, it is kept incredibly clean and the staff are very friendly. The room is a good size, the bed is comfy, it has foxtel, is located in the middle of Glenelg and the staff allowed us to keep our car parked there when we... More

My husband and I celebrated our 48th anniversary at Ensenada. We were in room 6, an executive queen room which was recently refurbished to a great standard. A couple of negatives, one is the annoying step from the bedroom to the bathroom which one needs to be aware, and two, the toilet area is very small, especially at night. Also,... More

Staff were friendly and very helpful with anything we asked, even directions to where we had to go for our family birthday lunch. Lots of choice on breakfast menu and was delivered promptly at arranged... More

Very good location, room a bit small but adequate and had been recently renovated, very clean and staff very helpful. Had the corporate deal which is very good value. Hotel close to everything. Breakfast very good and in room. Recommend for families or corporate. Only negative room access via 3 flights of stairs and no lift due to age of... More

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.
