Note: all prices quoted are in Australian dollars. The Best Western Glenelg offers cozy, well decorated, and clean rooms at a reasonable price. The rooms offer sufficient space to unpack and enjoy your stay without claustrophobia. Amenities include a large in-room safe, as well as a refrigerator stocked with plenty of drinks and snacks (available at a surcharge, so be... More

Stayed here recently when travelling from Melbourne to Adelaide. While it is about 20 minutes drive from town, Adelaide has nothing on Melbourne traffic so it was not a problem. The hotel is about as close as you can get to Glenelg's Jetty Road, which was a great surprise. The foreshore is just beautiful. Rooms are clean and kept to... More

Great efficient 1970's style hotel. VERY clean and VERY good location. Staff very professional but a bit aloof. Wish that more fresh air could come in as all the windows and doors are locked???? But overall great for business as 15minutes to airport.

In the heart of Glenelg. Excellent place to stay, friendly, helpful staff. Well worth the price. We will definately stay again. We have stayed here numerous times over the last thirty years and it keeps getting better.

This hotel is close to the city only a direct tram ride away and back, and is a short walk from Restaurants' and eateries. Clean and comfortable service is good and staff gave us good information on the best way to go into the city of Adelaide and places to eat in the surrounding area. They serve breakfast but don't...

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

Husband and I stayed last weekend (2-3 May) for 2 nights. It is in a great location and close to everything in Glenelg. Parking onsite. 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
