“Worst 5 minutes of my life... No exaggeration”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

Putrid, dirty, disgusting... And that was just the smell in reception. The room was just as bad. $260for a 3 bedroom unit that had 3 singles crammed into 1 room, a single and double cramed in the next, and the remaining bedroom was actually the corner in the hallway/living room. The bathroom was a petridish of all things nasty. We couldn't stay there, I feel like calling the health department or something. Seriously it is cheap, but for slightly less we got 2 rooms at another motel 3 minutes drive away and it is clean comfortable and good enough tat I'd come back. I'd never return to Motel Adjacent Casino. DEFINATLY NOT CLEAN OR FRIENDLY!

Room Tip: Don't do it to yourself, it isn't worth it!

Lets be honest, when you are paying ~$75 a night in the middle of Adelaide CBD you're not going to be staying in the hilton. Amazing location - minutes from major attractions and transport of Adelaide. Was here for something at the convention centre and it was just a short (5min) walk. Downside of location is that it IS in the cbd, so of course close to clubs/bars etc (great for a party weekend!) but there is a touch of noise leakage. In-room firdge/heater/AC/tv all worked find, somewhat aged but in good condition. Small but useable bathroom, the water is hot. The 24/7 staffed reception was very comforting - they're super friendly and nice, and make going out and coming back in at odd hours simple and made us feel safe. Was great to be able to leave the key at reception - Meant that we could separate over the evening and not worry about who had the key, or losing it, etc!

All in all, a simple, plain, but clean and friendly place. You will be satisfied if you go with the right expectations.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper - ask for a room on a higher floor.

A basic clean hotel in a fantastic location (near the railway station, CBD,etc)
The check-in is slow and they insist on a key deposit of $50 cash
My room was 501. It small but clean. No horrid smells and surprisingly quiet.
The negatives are small - no TV remote and not enough power points. Also no wi-fi

Our three years old girl's foot hurt and bleed because of more than five pieces of glass on the floor !!! We talked to the receptionist with the picture and some pieces of glass and their response was asking us why we didn't wear the shoes and without any apology. 10 minutes later he came to our room with a vacuum but he just left it for us to clean and gone. the price is not expensive but we didn't expect the floor with glass and do the housekeeping by ourselves.

good place to stay if you want to pay the minimum otherwise avoid at all costs. We had drunk people screaming outside or windows all through the night and early morning. Also had roadwork trucks start working at approximately 4am, very annoying. Checkout/reception does not let you keep your key so they have access to your room when youre out.. Stressful stay, Not enjoyable at all

I wouldn't stay in this place again if they paid me!
We were understanding when we couldn't check in at 10am as the room had not been cleaned but when checking in at 10.30pm that night, the person on reception had to check if the room had been cleaned. The hallway leading to our room smelled like cat urine. When we got to our room it was filthy. Stained carpet, stained bed linen and blankets, mould in bathroom and the ceiling tiles looked like they were about to collapse on us. After making a complaint we were given keys to two other rooms that were both also filthy and one where the toilet was continuously flushing. We then took those keys back and asked for something else. We were then given two different rooms again and they seemed a little better. We could at least sleep in the beds, and by this stage it was getting close to midnight and we just wanted to go to bed! The next morning we noticed again there was mould in the shower and basin, the ceiling tiles were sagging and cracked, and just to top it all off there was a condom wrapper on the floor between the bed and the bedside table. What a disgrace!!!
