Reviewed May 28, 2014

I missed my flight with Tiger Airlines, so I called up for a room. They saved me on taxi fare here & got me into a room within half hour of ringing them up. So I am greatful they were so helpful or I would have had to stay in another Hotel/ Motel somewhere further away from the airport. Very friendly staff which put me into a nice & clean room.

Was due to check in late so i left a message indicating as such o the web booking. On the day of the arrival I received 6 phone calls throughout the day leaving messages to contact them as soon as possible to arrange a late check, unfortunately i work for a living so could not drop everything for them, the last message said if i do not contact them i may loose my room (even though the the room was paid for). Most hotels have a late check in system but not here. Emails and text messaging used by other hotels seems to have skipped them by, just phone calls at inconvenient times. I wrote this comment in the room on a desk that is unusable (as it is inches away from the bed), with a noisy air conditioner, chipped wood finish and a room that smells like 1973 and a hint of petrol. Don't bother stopping here unless you are absolutely desperate or like wasting money.

There is a severe lack of accommodation near Adelaide airport and this motel is one of the closer ones - however it is still a $15 taxi or pre-arranged shuttle ride. It is a very old and tired motel, with extremely small rooms. The bed is almost touching the desk, so that it is difficult to use the chair at the desk. The bathroom is tiny, there is no hair dryer. I arrived around 8:15pm, and the restaurant was closed. The woman on reception kindly arranged some soup for room service. However it would have been very easy to be caught out, and there are no other options nearby.

Clean, very helpful staff in a great location for those early morning flights, not a comfort inn any more but still just what we wanted for a one night stay and the food was good. Next to the main road but we had no problem with noise.

I and two colleagyues was booked into this hotel for a night after attending a conference. Firstly it is no longer a Comfort Inn Brand. The front desk person was so disinterested when we the three of us arrived that was the first warning sign, When we finally got our keys for the the three rooms, they were the most disgudting rooms I have seen in any hotel for a very long time.

My room smelt like the toilet had backed up and checking the bed looked like it had been rushed to be made. One of my colleagues his room smelt like a dead was in it and room was full of flies and we couldn;t find the source of the smell.

Our other colleagues room was a haven for spiders and was dusty like no one had been it for years. We dropped our keys back at reception and left and booked into the Tiffans Hotel in Town, what a great change in rooms and the rates were the same!

Reception staff are friendly, rooms are average, food was overpriced and mediocre, food service perfunctory. The motel is a very long way from any other restaurants so you have to eat there, wasn't a big meal so we asked for dessert, told they had run out of dessert. We asked for snacks to take back to our room and were told they were out of them, gave us two little generic things of Arnotts biscuits .. all broken! Went to the bar, peeled the waitress away from her boyfriend and asked for chips or something, told they had run out. !!! Had booked in to return thru Adelaide 8 days later, on arrival same excuse, no snacks - sorry .. we've run out, had to walk 2k to the local servo to buy biscuits so we could have a cup of tea and a snack, after driving 500k to get there, that finished it for us. Room had one of those humming / rattling air con units which we had to turn off so as to sleep - Pool was out of order. Breakfast is pathetic, delivered to room the night before, 2 slices bread in glad wrap, a toaster, mini containers of fruit pieces, long life milk, no way to start the day if your traveling. By contrast we stayed in an identically priced family run Motel in Coober Pedy a few nights before, friendly, helpful, generous, comfortable, loved it, Aviators Lodge made us feel that we were only there to pay their rent. We were told by a taxi driver that there's a better Comfort Inn 5 mins away, closer to restaurants etc. Next time we stay there.

Room Tip: Skip it and find something better.

I only stayed one night in between flights. Shuttle service was rude and cranky. Desk staff friendly, meals average, room clean and basic, price is overinflated. The only asset is its close to the airport. Sure there are better options out there

Room Tip: ask for one at the back, you are on the main highway and on the end of the run way!
