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

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...
