Older style motel but clean and tidy - close to tram that takes you into the city and casino Stayed four nights - great... More

Booked the winter special and had 2 nights and 2 cooked breakfast (delivered to the room). The rooms were super clean and comfortable, mini bar prices very reasonable and it is a very short walk to all the attractions Glenelg has to offer. Thoroughly recommend this accommodation.

I had to be in the north of Adelaide for a meeting, so I stayed in Glenelg the night before. The Best Western Ensenada Motor Inn was a fine place to stay. It's laid out more like a hotel than a classic Aussie motel: the main effect of this is that there are quite some stairs to climb with your... More

Low cost, great location, very clean, parking available. This accomodation was great, the only slight negative was carrying luggage up flights of stairs. (No lift) we would definitely stay here again.

A very clean motel with great amenities and friendly staff, great location to Glenelg beach, shops, restaurants and public transport. Only draw back was the stairs as I have some mobility problems with stairs.

This is a great hotel in a great location, staff are friendly and efficient but the room is another story. Everything looked clean and tidy but when I came out of the bathroom I noticed a stain on the floor which looked liked someone had thrown up on the carpet and it had not been cleaned up

Stayed here with hubby at the end of a business trip. Hotel is very basic (no lift and only stairs to upper floors). Rooms clean, albeit very small. Beds a bit on the hard side for us, but that is a personal choice. If you like a hard bed, this is the place for you. Reception staff efficient but not... More
