Reviewed March 23, 2010

Rude owners, not particularly clean, beds uncomfortable, fans don't work, pool dirty, everything is outdated. Found out I could get better bang for my buck looking elsewhere. Won't stay here again!

We stayed at the Glenelg motel for 2 nights in the spa room. There was an annoying noise all night long, like a toilet flushing and pipes knocking, except it was consistent every 5 minutes or so. I'm a light sleeper so this really bothered me. If you can sleep through a bomb you'll be fine. We told management but they didnt' seem to care. Said they'd look into it but I didn't believe them.

The room was clean enough, very old decor, The tv is ontop of a wardrobe so if you plan on staying in, expect to have a sore neck!

One of our towels had a brown stain on it. Yuck. Hope it was just dirt and not something else!

The pool was clean and well maintained. And the bathroom was nice and clean as well.

This motel was adequate except for the above reasons if they don't bother you, just for somewhere to lay your head for a stop over.
