“Noisy location but clean and tidy”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

We stayed here for one night after booking through lastminute. We got an upgrade free of charge to a marina facing room and were able to use our room at lunchtime as it had already been serviced. The staff were friendly and helpful. We didn't eat here so didn't make use of our free drinks voucher. There is free wifi but unfortunately they are having connection problems so we only had access for one day out of our two day stay. All in all a good location if you are visiting Glenelg.

This is average accommodation that is fairly well located, and that is why you pay the rates, not for the quality, perhaps we were in the old part of the motel. Forget marina view rooms in summer, it's to hot to open the curtains and you have all the traffic noise. You get a complimentary drink voucher, but only if you purchase a full meal, please! That is ridiculous. The room was clean and the bed comfy. There is plenty of choice in the surrounding area, look for one that knows what complimentary coffee really means.

Chose this place on a last-minute website for location more than anything else and was pleasantly surprised at how great it was. We got a family room for approx. $120/night with a great view overlooking the Marina. The room itself was well appointed with comfortable beds clean shower & toilet and good water pressure in the shower.

The staff were most friendly and helpful. The place has it's own restaurant and we ordered room service from here once and were very pleased with the quality of food and value for money.

The in-house pool was of a reasonable size but did get a bit crowded as we were there over some very hot days, but we spent such little time there given that Glenelg beach was 10 mins walk away, as were all the other attractions that Glenelg has to offer.

Will certainly stay here again and recommend it to others.

Room Tip: The rooms are located on two floors with only stairs for access. So if you have difficulty climbing...

We were based in the Comfort Inn Haven Marina for almost 3 weeks whilst working at a major sports event and found it a very friendly and welcoming place to stay.
The rooms were a bit tired and certainly needed a bit of modernisation to get them up to current hotel standards but they were clean and tidy and kept that way by an attentive group of house staff.
Storage in the rooms was a bit of a problem with very little cupboard and drawer space available.This is alright for those that are just overnighting but when you are there for a few or, more, nights it is a real problem. It is not great to be "living out of a suitcase" for three weeks.
Breakfasts in the restaurant were fine with plenty of choice available. The Plank Restaurant was fine, but a bit on the expensive side, for evening meals but with a large number of restaurants just 5 minutes walk away in Glenelg there was no real problem about eating in the evenings.
Staff were very friendly and could not do enough for us event to getting our on-line check-in completed and printed off before setting off for the airport.
All in the hotel was excellent and provided for all our needs during our stay.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front, street side, have better views over the marina.

Just a note for those who think it's "free wifi"... it's $40 more expensive than other hotels in the area, but I booked it for the free wifi, but it's 200MB as a limit (which is low but reasonable), but then they charge you $0.10/MB over that! My iPad, if it's getting/sending photos with Photostream or the like can use that up super fast, so I didn't dare try it.

Cut guests off at 200MB, that's fine - charging me extra at about 100 times the market rate for business wifi in Adelaide is a disgusting ripoff.

When I stayed here with my family a couple of years ago it was horrible. It was a hot night and the ancient airconditioner woke everyone up in the room every time it kicked in. Worse sleep I have ever had in a Hotel and said I would never stay there again. I have however stayed ther since on business and they have been making some great improvements. The rooms are definitely budget, but they do the trick (No horrible airconditioner this time, unsure if the family room has new airconditioner - check when you book). The Plank Restaurant is greatt although I only had breakfast and some drinks there as the Hotel is within walking distance are many fine places to eat.

Pictures on trip advisor misleading in some ways. Maybe shot long time ago? Rooms have a dated feel. Allocated parking should be enforced as closer parks near our rooms were taken thus annoying. Restaurant looks fantastic may try it out. Lack of safe in room disappointing as should be standard. View of Marina plesant.
