Stayed at the Glenelg Motel with my two daughters & three grandkids for 3 nights during the school holidays. One room accommodated us all & there was plenty of space for everyone. Room consisted of a queen bed & 4 singles. Was very neat & tidy (until we arrived lol) & staff were very pleasant & friendly. Extremely handy location... More

Comfortable beds - Air Cond - Clean - good Breakfast - what more do you need. If like me you are really only after a place to sleep after a day in Adelaide this is great. Friendly Staff - Good Pub 5 mins walk (The Watermark) for beers and great Pub Meals.

We have stayed here now on several occasions. Some rooms do need updating. Lots look like they have been updated. The rooms are always clean and have all the mod cons needed. It is a lovely 10 min walk to Jetty Road. We have stayed here now for New Years for several years, as it's close to glenelg, but far... More

This Motel is close to most things, like the Airport, Tram to the City, beach, shops and Cafe's and the Morphettville Racecoarse. Lots of shopping and sporting facilities near by. Lots to see in the Adelaide Hills and Vineyards to visit.

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.
