Because this motor inn is circular, the rooms are "wedge-shaped" which makes the furniture arranging difficult. However, the cost is very reasonable for a property close to all the Glenelg attractions and shops, Our room had a lovely view of the Adelaide Hills but the balcony was too narrow to fit a chair, There is also a car park right...

I stayed at this place for 4 nights in June 2014. I was a carer for a man with a disability and we stayed in separate rooms on the 10th floor. My room was good and had spectacular views. The man with a disability had a hospital bed put in the room and the bathroom was great for his needs... More

Stayed for 1 night. Room was clean and comfortable. Pretty well ticked all the boxes. Free & convenient car park, Free internet (80mb), continental breakfast supplied with $10 extra for a cooked breakfast. Lastly the views (we were on 9th floor) and locations finish off this great package. The price I thought was pretty good value. Staff were also friendly... More

Externally ATMI looks unappealing and drab. The foyer is dated as is the lift interior and its circular corridors. We had booked 3 nights in the last available room which happened to be the Disabled Access room on the 9th flr. What a joy it was as we entered the room. The large balcony sliding doors let in the sun... More

Stayed for one night then the following week for two nights. The first night was really uncomfortable as I found blood stains on the top sheet. I had already booked the next weeks days. I reported it on check out rather than at the time. This was because I was feeling really unwell and just had to sleep. So I... More

We had to fly back to Adelaide at short notice for a funeral, and I needed to find accommodation in a hurry. I'll be honest; I hadn't set my standards very high, and I hadn't even done my research. But I got lucky, and I'm really grateful to the staff at Atlantic Tower Motor Inn. We were provided with a... More

Very outdated and shabby building with no attempt at making the foyer appealing. Even the recently renovated room on the first floor that I had was basic and the view was of another hotel. Car parking was included in the tariff and easily accessible to accommodated the large SUV I have whereas other hotels in the general vicinity charge excessively... More

Thank you for your review, I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and your interactions with our friendly staff. Sorry to hear you didn't get much of a view, the first floor rooms are cheaper for that exact reason. If you’re here for more than a night, I would definitely recommend the higher floor rooms. Ask for a... More

I didn't mark terrible as the view was quite outstanding. That's about it however. Our room was outdated and dirty. Right down to the remote control that was sticky and smelly. Breakfast was below par - stick to the boxed cereals. Wouldn't stay here again, Adelaide has heaps of options in this price bracket you can do a lot better... More

There is no getting past the fact that this building must have seemed a good idea at the time - decades ago? However for a short stay, if you want to exploit the great views, and be close to the airport, it is fine. Don't expect your contemporary, slick hotel room here. But we found the price to be okay,...

Thank you for taking the time to submit some feedback. Every room in the property has been refurbished within the last six years. Granted, some rooms have been refurbished more recently than others, however, to imply that they are decades out of date is an embellished statement and one of personal opinion. All of our rooms feature modern fixtures and... More

We stayed at the Atlantic Tower Motor Inn when we were touring around Adelaide recently and We found the motel to be in need of some small work. It is a little run down, but for the price we paid we were comfortable enough. The linen was very clean as was the room itself. The location was very close to... More
