I always base my reviews on value for money and getting what you paid for. As a family if 6, accommodation at a reasonable price and standard is often hard to find. We paid $200 for a clean, comfortable family room within walking distance to the tram and the centre of Glenelg. Fantastic value! Older style motel but clean, comfortable... More

I spent two nights at the Glenelg Motel in January. Firstly , I had to change my original booking -this was handled seamlessly. I found the motel to be comfortable , plenty of space , usual furniture /fittings. Reasonably priced. Conveniently located -can walk to Jetty Road, Glenelg Beach and the Marinas. Good access to and close to Adelaide Airport.... More

We were recommended this Motel by family who had used it several times before. We arrived by taxi via Adelaide Airport to visit family staying nearby at West Beach. Leonie was firm but very pleasant, laying down the rules of the motel, as most folks arrive by car/Yute on their travels around Australia. Our room was ready early – at... More

We booked a spa room for both nights, @ $145 each night, although the motel is old and dated, the rooms are large and clean, the decor I could... More

Fantastic motel for a stay. Great service, extremely friendly and very helpful. Rooms are very comfortable and clean. Close to the beach and the attractions and just a short walk to the tram and Jetty road shopping and eateries. Spa rooms are very nice,

A great little motel that represents very good value for money. It is in a quiet residential area of Glenelg. Although it is situated by a main road there is no traffic noise as the rooms are set back quite a distance from the road. It is an easy walk to the seafront and the centre of town. Our room...

We booked in to this motel as the rooms were well priced for a short over night stay in preparation for an early flight out of Adelaide and being only 10 minutes from the airport was very handy. The room was a good size and also had a small lounge area to the side. It was clean and had just... More

I recently spent a week in this Motel and must say that the Manager Leonie was very obliging in changing things around slightly to make me more comfortable for the duration.I was in a Unit in the middle of the large complex and couldn't hear the traffic on busy Tapley's Hill Rd at all. It is quite an old building... More

The large Glenelg motel is ideally located near the centre of Glenelg and has quick and direct access to the Adelaide airport. The motel does face the main busy road but traffic noise does not seem to filter down to the motel rooms. The exterior of the motel looks a little tired but the rooms are large, very clean, well...
