Booked into this motel and right from the get go Kylie couldn't do enough for me, maps, directions, print out of bus routes. Then found out we were to far away from where we needed to be, and she again was very helpful, helping me look into my options. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay Kylie. And the room... More

We spent three days here, started by welcoming service from the front staff and share the local information at the surrounding area, good. The room was spacious, clean bathroom, free wifi, flat TV, comfy beds, quiet and decent sleeps, at affordable room rate. A bit too far but still OK at a walking distance to Glenelg Jetty and Adelaide Tram... More

We were offered a fantastic deal of room and full breakfast which was really reasonable. Neil, the manager was very helpful in offering suggestions about... More

This was on the edge of the town but walkable. Standard motel accommodation, clean. It was close to the airport which was good. Breakfast was good. Its on the main road but our room was very quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful

Although the Glenelg Motel is on a very busy road, the design of the property means that the rooms are very quiet. The rooms are big, clean and well maintained. The generous block of land means that the forecourt is also big, allowing plenty of space for manouvring the car. It is close to the airport, which is why I... More

We stayed at the Glenelg for 6 nights in March. Very clean and spacious room and comfy beds. A nice pool to cool off in on the hot days. It's about a 15 minute walk to the beach and the shopping/restaurant area on Jetty Road. The staff are very friendly and helpful with info on Glenelg. A very pleasant 6... More

Great value for money and accommodation standard was aligned to the price. Location was perfect, not far from the airport but not so close to lose touch with the city atmosphere. The leisurely stroll to Jetty Road was a fantastic stretch for the legs after a long flight, and provided unending dining opportunities.

Not the best, even allowing for the price, but satisfactory in most regards. Furniture and furnishings are dated but clean, the room was fully equipped for our two night stay and we were given a large room with facilities for four. The motel is situated close enough for averagely able people to walk to the seafront or to catch the... More

Stayed for 4 nights. Very clean and tidy and a large room. Only a short walk to Glenelg itself or to the tram to the city. It is a great spot to go exploring from. Cannot fault the Motel. Plenty of eateries all ov er the place and the furthest would be a 25 minute walk. You also have Harbour... More
