“Good place for a busy traveller”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

Rooms are crowded with leg room being very small. I travel solo and still found it small. However, the location is close to everything that is Glenelg. It is very quiet and peaceful, not because the walls are thick (they are not) but because hotel policy is stringent which I liked. No elevators, or bell boy service, so I carried my 17kg bag up three staircases alone.

Room Tip: Keep away from the terminal rooms (mine was 30) as the outside door constantly brings in noise and c...

We needed a convenient hotel for an overnight stay before an early flight from Adelaide airport and this fitted the bill! We also found that it was conveniently situated very near Jetty Road for cafes, restaurants and beach. The motor inn was very clean and staff very friendly and helpful, they arranged for a taxi to the airport which was only 10 minutes away. Would definitely recommend this motel. Very good value.

I have stayed here twice now while in Adelaide on business.
Close to everything in Glenelg, a quick stroll along the beach front, the jetty and all the restaurants. secure parking, morning windscreen wash very comfortable and clean, free wifi and all the TV channels for free.
I thoroughly recommend this Motel.

Room Tip: First floor if you don't like stairs.

We chose this motel for it's location and were not disappointed. So close to the beach, but also the shops and restaurants. The room itself seemed quite compact, but was clean and comfortable. We were not bothered by any noise from the traffic or the busy neighbourhood, but were aware of our fellow motel guests entrances and exits. We appreciated the free internet, and found the front desk staff very helpful.

Hi Guys,

Stayed here for 4 nights last month on business on the basis of Trip Advisor reviews.
Very welcoming staff and my room was very comfortable. My view was on the western side and my balcony faced the park opposite. Breakfast was served to your room and the bed was very comfortable. Free parking was allocated and the staff washed my car windscreen every night to make my start to the day a safe one....nice little touch.
Would I stay here again, of course I would and as my previous reviews state, I rarely stay at the same place twice on my business travels.

Room Tip: Ask for a western facing window

I had a bit of an odd experience at this hotel - when I checked in, the reception person escorted me to my room (thru halls, stairs, & more halls) & ran thru 'everything', which included the security code for the carpark gate. The gate was open when I checked in (afternoon)- I asked what time it closes (thereby needing the code) & the woman's answer was, "I could close that at any time" (was that a 'threat'?!). Going & getting my luggage from the car, I went to the most obvious hotel entry, which went to the lobby, however, after lugging suitcases up stairs 2 levels, discovered later a stairway very near my room! Settled in for the evening & went to log onto their internet. Need the user-name & p/word, so rang reception, only to be told that they won't give it over the phone, but I needed to personally come to reception to obtain it (!). With the personal escort to my room & 'orientation', I therefore thot there were a few important ommissions...Other than that, the hotel is in a brilliant location - right in Glenelg, by the beach & less than 100m walk to Jetty Rd shops. Also a grocery store nearby. Downside is there's no lift/elevator, so if you have heavy luggage-argh. I had noisy neighbors, but that wasn't hotel's fault. Loading up my car to leave, there's a note on my now-cleaner windscreen - this hotel cleans them "to assist you in driving safely"- nice touch :) a bit better customer service would have made this hotel a better experience.

Room Tip: Front rooms have quite a good view, while the back rooms are to hotel backs, carpark, etc. & als...
