We recently stayed here for 3 nights and I recommend it if you're looking for something in Glenelg that's clean and affordable. The room that we had suited us perfectly. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom was nice and clean and a good pool/spa area which we used a lot. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I would definitely... More

Stayed for a night at this place while transiting. The staff was extremely helpful. Given we were late they sent us an email to provide instructions how to access the key. The following day they let us leave the luggage and go around. All in all thumbs up.

nice motel ,rooms clean and well serviced. It's a motel so luxury is not a premium, meals are well presented and good ,staff very obliging. Great place to stay short term. Short walk 15-20 minutes to shopping mall, beach, good food and restuarants.

The room was airy,clean, comfortable and lacked for nothing with a staff that... More
