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...

Older style motel however very clean, comfortable, good beds for a good nights sleep, good location etc. Cannot fault anything other than roadway where parking cars for the bottom rooms is a bit narrow, but very small thing. breakfast was superb (and the lady cooking breakfast wonderful)

Great value for money and accommodation of a high standard. Rooms and bathrooms are very clean and neat with all the standard facilities. Service was professional and friendly. Beds are superb - we had a good night's rest. Location is close to all that Glenelg has to offer! Would recommend this motel any day!

We spent one night in this older, but very well maintained motel. It is well positioned in Glenelg, within walking distance of the beach, restaurants and shops. The motel is meticulously clean. No cooking facilities. Perfect for a short stay.

We needed something close to the airport to catch our early morning flight- this one was a 15 minute taxi ride to airport. They have a phone just outside of reception that you can use to call a cab. Room was spacious enough for the 4 of us and it is close to restaurants. Room is a bit dated, cracked... More
