Reviewed November 13, 2012 via mobile

Very well priced and very conveniently situated less than ten minute drive to the airport and a very short walk into Glenelg which offers a long shopping Main Street and lots of places to eat, things to see etc. The room was very spacious with a large firm queen size bed, plenty of shower pressure and hot water, large flat screen tele, large fridge, ... Nice having the extra security of a second door lock and chain, I am sure that its quite safe but as I as staying alone this was welcome. On request reception gave me a 300mb voucher for nomad Internet which was adequate for me to talk on Skype to my husband for nearly an hour. Very easy to get to the airport, will definitely stay again and also use the long term car parking facilities for guests when going on holiday overseas. Ten out of ten. Leonie very friendly.

This hotel is very well priced and the rooms are quite spacious, with tea/coffee facilities and a fridge. The owner is very friendly and the motel has a great vibe about it. There are alot of people coming and going so it is not a quiet place to stay, but it is comfortable and only a 10min walk from the Glenelg main street and eateries, even less to the Patawalonga. I would definately stay again.

Solo trip to watch my daughter at the Uni Games. Budget motel in a great location. Convenient to the airport and all the restaurants and bars on Jetty Road and the beach.
Marina is less than 5 min walk away and then a very pleasant walk along the beach.
Leonie (Manager) was friendly and helpful.
Enjoyed the stay and would stay again.

Room Tip: Room with spa is nice.

Had a wonderful time in Glenelg. The motel was 10 minutes from the Airport. Unfortunately you heard every plane arriving and leaving and if someone coughed next door. But apart from that the room's were clean and breakfast was delicious and within our budget. Have promised to return. we booked through booking.com, but when we needed to stay an extra day, we emailed and all was confirmed within 20 minutes. Now that's service! A lovely stroll saw us in the middle of Glenelg along with the Tram to the city. Glenelg Motel is in a very good location along with the beach just one block away.

Very popular hotel, appeared to be full on a Friday night in May. We paid $95 for a room with a queen bed and two singles. The room was certainly large enough for a family, without treading on each other. Very clean bathroom, quite large with seperate shower, no bath. Only complaint was TV was placed on very high wardrobe, too high to attend to if something went wrong. We were offered breakfast for $14 in the restaurant, but didn't require. Don't think of sleeping in, the lady bangs on all the doors at 10.15am sharp, I guess they need to get the rooms done for another lot of guests.Within walking distance to local Glenelg, if you are up to it. Need a car for anywhere further. Woolworths and large shopping precinct within a ten minute walk. No deli or shop really close by, so gather some supplies before you go. No mini bar or snacks for sale in room. Adelaide water isn't the best, so take bottled water. Very handy for a night's stay in Adelaide, not nice enough for a 'special' night, but certainly served us well.

Room Tip: Use the hotel's website or rooms available for the same price on Wotif or LastMinute.

My wife and children stayed in the family room in April. It had a queen bed and four singles in the one room with a dividing wall between two of the singles. The value for two adults and three kids was very reasonable at $185 for the night. The location makes it very good for access to Glenelg and surrounds.

Breakfast was rather overrated for the price. It cost $12 for continental (toast, cereal etc.) and $14 for cooked (the standard sausage, hash brown etc.) with no discount for children (we had a four year old who ate one weet-bix and a cup of OJ and it cost $12).
