“Value for Money!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

We (my boyfriend and i) recently spent one night at the Comfort Inn as we had a very early flight and live over an hour away from the airport.

Anyway, we booked last minute through booking.com and as we were checking in late and out early we just booked the basic "standard double room" for $98.00. So we were'nt expecting much, just a basic room with a bed and a shower, no view or luxuries...

Well, we were completely blown away!! It was fantastic! The staff were all very lovely and friendly. Which always starts things on a good note. We ended up with a room right at the front of the place with a 180 degree view of the marina! The only thing seperating us from the water was a road! So that was a nice suprise.

The bed was one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept on! The bathroom, although a little out-dated visually was clean with excellent hot water and good pressure. Perfect lighting too.

The tv was fairly large for a hotel room with a few foxtel channels, including a movie channel which is a huge plus in my opinion. There was a bar fridge with the usual tea, coffee etc. And free wifi! Gotta love a room with free internet. There were also current issues of a few magazines which was a nice.

As for location, like I said previously, we were right by the marina so views were superb. Its about a 5 mintue walk to resturants and shops on the marina. About 10 minutes to Moseley Square and the beach. For 98 bucks we were thrilled, especially when if you were to stay in one of the hotels around 1km up the road it would cost you around $300. The airport is only about 7 minutes away, with Harbor Town 5 minutes.


We are only sorry that we were'nt there long enough to experience the resturuant, room service and pool area. We will definately be back! Exellent value for money and A1 location! It goes above and beyond my expectations of a hundred dollar basic room. Would highly recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Ask for room 222 (which was a nice suprise as that is my favourite number) Excellent views! Comfy be...

My husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and as we were dining at Sammy's at the Marina we thought it might be a nice idea to stay over at The Haven Marina for the night. When my husband went to book he told the receptionist it was a special occasion, as there was no Marina view rooms, he thought he must be in the garden view rooms he could see from reception. When we arrived we were directed to the side of the motel and discovered a small old budget motel room which needed to be knocked down and rebuilt to the expectations of people living in the 21st century. Needless to say we were very disappointed having to spend a special night in such a below standard accommodation, especially in such a premium tourist precinct as Glenelg. The tarriff for this room was on special at $139 not including breakfast!!!!!!! I must admit the room was clean and the staff friendly and apologetic about the accommodation.

Room Tip: Do not book or accept a standard room off of side street next to Motel.

Staff very friendly and helpful

With 2 kids we arrived extremely tired at 10 am , asked if we could checkin early as we were exhausted , the room was ready so staff only too happy to help

Room was very clean , dated but satisfactory

Pool nice for kids , hotel is by the marina so nice setting

We didnt eat at the hotel as food was too pricey for a family of 4 , we ate in glenelg plenty of pricey restaurants if thats what you want but reasonable ones too

Would stay again

Needed a cheap & cheerful hotel room for 3 adults (Mum,Dad & adult daughter). We were meeting up with friends on a visit from Perth. The room was very clean, beds were comfortable, bathroom/toiletries sufficient. Very handy to all that Glenelg has to offer. The staff I dealt with we're vey friendly & efficient. Would definitely stay here again..

Thank you for your feedback. One of our propertys unique features is that we are “pet friendly” however we only have 4 dedicated pet friendly accommodation rooms available. We do not allow dogs into our restaurant or pool, so unfortunately a guest must have ignored the signs displayed in our pool area.

Had booked online and due to travel delays, was forced to cancel 2 nights of my stay, which the hotel staff was able to help me with over email due to my lack of cell service (was inbound from Afghanistan). I am now in contact with the hotel as the first night was charged to my card, but after the great customer service I received, I feel this charge will be settled/refunded. Friendly staff upon arrival. No elevators so, dragging a heavy suitcase up to the second floor wasn't a treat, but not insurmountable. Room was very dated, but clean. View from restaurant patio was nice. Breakfast wrap I had there was delicious. Overall, I feel like it was a decent deal in a safe/nice location. Probably wouldn't want to do an extended stay there, but was great for passing though and would stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for lower level if you're traveling with heavy bags - no elevators!

We stayed there for one night I found all the staff to be excellent although. The room we stayed in was older style but everything was clean and worked .The bed was comfy so slept really well . we decided to have a meal in the restaurant which was nice and cooked as it should be
This hotel is in a great position at a budget price I think it fits the bill quite well
