Checked into a family apartment with cooking facilities which was actually 2 rooms joined together and a small electric hot plate to cook on. The quality of the room and fittings were extremely old and in poor condition. The walls were at least five years overdue for a paint and the beds were so poor that it would have been better to sleep on the floor. Left after 3 hours because we just couldn't stay in what was a dump.

Stayed two nights prior to long weekend & as I arranged accommodation at short notice there was little available. Paid $180 for a spa room. Others have commented re the 70's decor, exactly right. The wall tiles under the basin where the down pipe leads into the main waste water system, had not been replaced so it was possible that anything could have crawled into the bathroom. The wall tiles behind the combine bath/shower were lifting from the bath edge. The room needs amake over. The spa is next to the bed more or less. As others have stated it is conveniently located. I stayed elsewhere later in the next week for less $$, better facilities & closer to the main street.

* Fantastic location, just a block from the beach, marina and shops
* Clean and comfortable, but very basic
* Rate includes car parking which is handy if you have a hire car
* Standard rooms are exactly that - a reasonably comfortable bed, basic facilities but definitely not offensive in any way. You will need to request anything besides the basics, such as a knive or extra plates - not an issue though as they are helpful.
* Standard rooms seem to be set back from the road, so no street noise. Air conditioning leaks and is a little noisy but to be expected of an older property.

Great alternative for value accommodation with a fantastic central location. If you spend most of your days exploring the local area and Adelaide (ie not in your room), then this is a perfect choice. Compared to some of the nearby hotels, you will leave with a few extra dollars in your pocket too.

We stayed here for three nights using it as a base to explore Adelaide. It is a 3 minute walk from the beach and the tram terminus that takes you into the City Centre. Great for a City break by the beach.

Like most Aussie motels this was built in the 70s and it showing its age. The room we had have mot been refurbigshed (although this is planned) and are looking very tired and dated.
The curtains on one of the rooms did not close properly so not as private as you may wish. The maintenance man should inspect the rooms more frequently than he does at present.

Good points: Excellent reception staff, great location, very good value, very clean.

Bad point: Some of the rooms need a makeover.

Location was fantastic, service was good, but the room was average.
We had a room which the a/c-heater was like a compressor running and dripped water all over the floor at the front door. When running, we had to turn the tv up which the remote only worked when it wanted to.
The bed was so soft that my wife and I ended up rolling into the middle every night. She hardly slept for 2 days.
In addition, the curtains in the room did not provide enough privacy that anyone can see us sleeping in bed at night.
So if we were to return back to Adelaide, we would probably go somewhere else.
