I booked this motel purely on location and proximity to the airport, as we were catching an early flight the next morning. And what a delightful surprise it was. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was huge and very clean. The recommended taxi service arrived on time (it seemed to be the middle of the night!) We... More

Have stayed here a lot of times . Always happy greeting from desk staff . Reckon new mattresses and pillows would be a winner. Would stay there again but would ask to check room for those simple but essential items!

Good motel near Jetty Rd and the marina area. Comfortable rooms and good amenities, pool etc. Friendly, helpful managers. Arrived early from interstate and able to check in at 11:00 am which was a bonus.

We visited Adelaide during the cricket World Cup. Booked this motel for 5 of us in September 2014 and paid $400 total for 2 nights. Since we drove there, I won't be able to comment on its proximity to public transport. Must admit though the CBD was like 15mins or so by car and beach was the same as well,... More

Very close to the airport. Liked the open format of the room layout. One can sit outside and enjoy the weather, when it's nice. The only drawback is that it's not meant for those who don't have their own transport. So better drive because there's no public transport close by.

From the moment I walked in the door and was checked in by Kylie I knew I was in a well run establishment when the owner/manager cared about the future of their business and the comfort of their customers. She could not have done a better job of providing me all the info I needed. The room was comfortable and... More

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
