My advice to any traveller is to avoid this motel at all costs! It is a shabby dive of a motel and our experience was awful despite the staff’s best efforts.
The 1st room we were given (rm 31) was infested with ants in large numbers on all furniture and walls, including the bed. When I complained to office staff - they told me ants are common in Adelaide and are everywhere, they stated that they had no other rooms, and that they could not do anything until after their on-site restaurant dinner rush was finished. The office staff were none committal in regards to what and when they would/could do anything in regards to the ants in the room. If I had not have just driven a straight 8 hours from of our home to Adelaide I would have demanded a full refund and found accommodation elsewhere. Later the staff found that they suddenly had a room that was free, which they offered to us. This room (no 22) was ant free, but shabby, and the room's dark blue carpet colour/dye kept transferring onto the bottom of our feet whenever walked bare-footed on it. It also transferred a dark blue permanent stain onto any clothing that had the misfortune to fall onto the carpet.
On day 2 of our stay a motel staff member rented out a room (neighbouring ours) to one of their relative(s)/family friend(s) - who used the room to host a LOUD and boozy all day AND all night party for a large crowd of unruly, obnoxious, drunk "20'something's". When I complained to the motel staff in the office about the ridiculous noise levels and disturbance from the party nothing was done. I later witnessed the same staff member speaking with some of the room’s inhabitants in the motel parking lot about an incident which had occurred at the party and it was clear the staff member knew them all personally. In addition - please note that this hotel is also at least a sweaty 30-40 minute walk to the beach....so do not be seduced by their claim that the motel is a 500 meter walk to the beach.
So based on our 2 day/3 night experience staying at this motel I really would advise that everyone steer clear of this place and book elsewhere. The place really is an embarrassment to the "Comfort Inn Brand" which I have previously stayed in several locations worldwide with satisfaction...until now. This motel was a huge let down to our first trip to the area and I wish I had check further on its reputation before I booked.
