“6 stars”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

After 3 nights on the road staying at $30 country pub rooms this was 6 star BLISS !! Not much to review. Clean room with a crispy clean comfy queen bed. All the usuals. Iron, tv, tea, coffee, biscuits and such. Shower water pressure a bit down, but it was hot and wet. Off street parking, close to all attractions ( tram, beach, etc ) Good value.

Room Tip: front rooms have the view, at a price $$

We were dissapointed with this room, it was spacious , but the double bed was a joke, it was just a base , not a top mattress , and a thick underlay thing. On top of the base . My back was solo sore, I am so glad we only stayed one night

What a surprise that such a beautiful motel is within my budget. From the moment I arrived it has been a pleasurable experience. The man at reception was a delight - super friendly and lovely sense of humour (he laughed at my pathetic jokes). The room, well, what can I say? Simply gorgeous. First floor with balcony overlooking the marina, spa with hot water, lovely warm decor, just divine. Comfortable bed, perfectly clean, I could go on and on. I've never been a fan of Adelaide but my opinion has changed. This is the number one choice in Glenelg for so many reasons - affordable, beautiful, great location, just a short walk from Jetty Road and the tram into the CBD.

Room Tip: Request room 15.

2 night midweek stay. Arrived 9:00 pm, reception open and welcoming. Room was bottom floor, standard motel room, but for $95 could not complain, it was clean and tidy. Rooms were average in size, small work desk but big enough for a computer.. Best thing was the free wifi which is better than most hotels. Breakfast was good, standard selection and well priced. The hotel is well located for exploring the Glenelg area on foot.

I needed a cheaper option than a hotel for four nights and found it in the Wot-if "Ultimate August Stay" at the Haven Marina Inn . The free parking right outside the door was great, with windscreen cleaned each morning too. The room was spacious had everything required, great view across to the water and boats, sparklingly clean too. I took advantage of the 25% off for dinner in the café on the first night and was pleasantly surprised re the quality of the meal and the very pleasant staff. On check-in the younger receptionist was a bit surly and needs to pay attention to her manner. The other receptionist, house keeping and café breakfast staff were charming and friendly. Trip Advisor reviewers who have marked this venue down need to realise they are staying in a motel - not a 4/5* hotel, I found their complaints unjustified and I had a very pleasant and quiet stay. Will stay here again.

Room Tip: Think the marina facing downstairs rooms would be the best, ask for 121 it's the end room with n...

The hotel is well located, clean and the staff is professional. Another positive point is the free onsite parking. However, what you see on the website is not what you get; the photos are misleading and are much newer/nicer than the actual room we had. Very thin walls so you can hear your neighours especially the bathroom water running. Carpets would need a change as they are smelly in the entire building. Quite disappointed with the experience overall and the fact that the photos are not representative of the actual hotel

Room Tip: Ask for a room with Marina view - it's most likely nicer than the one we had

Hi there,

Thank you for your feedback.

In regards to our website photos being misleading I dont believe this to be true. Most of our room shots are of our Marina View and Balcony rooms, as we like to showcase the amazing views . Those photos are a true reflection of these room types and are clearing explained on our website. The room you booked and stayed in was one of our standard rooms (no view) so you are correct in staying it was different to the photos.

Im surprised you also mention the carpets being smelly, as it was just laid over the southern side of the building 6 weeks ago, maybe it still has that new smell?

Thank you for your kind comments regarding our staff but Its important before you leave negative feedback for others to view, you have all the facts. If you have voiced this to our staff on arrival, we would have been more than happy to show you another room type to make your stay more comfortable.

Kind regards,

Management

I booked a standard room on wotif.com for a winter warmer deal of $89, the room included a queen and single bed facing the marina. The room was really quite large, comfy beds and tastefully decorated. A large tv, mini bar, tea/coffee facilities. Wardrobe and hanging space. The bathroom was older in décor, but still quite large and everything in working order. I was really happy with what I got. In excellent location within walking distance to the main street of Glenelg.
We had breakfast in the Planks restaurant, buffet all you can eat for $20 and it was delicious. They only had scrambled eggs, I prefer fried and asked for some which the staff were only too happy to assist with at no extra cost.
Will definitely be back again!

Hello,

Thank you for your lovely feedback.

I see you chose our "Winter Warm up" package which is great value and has been very popular.
Im also pleased to see you enjoyed our buffet breakfast which is also great value as were improving it all the time.

We look forward to welcoming your back in the future, perhaps when the weather is nice and warm and you can enjoy the beach!

Kind regards,
