“Accommodation close to the City”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

We spent a total of 4 nights at the Granada Motor Inn - three at the beginning of our two week trip to South Australia and then one night before we flew home. The accommodation was close to the city centre and not too far from the airport. It was also well located for our sightseeing trips into the city and the Adelaide hills. We stayed in an executive suite which had been newly renovated - it had a small fridge, microwave, tea and coffee making facilities and plates and cutlery. Although the inn is on a very busy road, we did not notice any traffic noise from our room. In all a pleasant stay at the Granada, reasonably priced and conveniently located for our holiday needs. PS: We booked over the phone rather than on the internet - and they were able to give us a better rate than what was available on-line.

Room Tip: If you aren't able to carry your bags upstairs - ask for a room on the ground level.

We had three nights in the 'Executive' room and found it very comfortable. The room was a good size and had a little dining table & chairs, and also a sofa so it was nice to have places to sit other than on the bed. Appreciated the crockery and cutlery that was available in the room.

Bathroom nice modern and clean but our one negative was the smell of the bath towels - most motel towels have a certain smell, but these were really disgusting, smelt of fish or something and we struggled to use them, extremely off putting. It seems they are washed without cleaning agent or very very little of it.
The 'fresh' towels on the second day were just as bad so we actually laundered & tumble dried them ourselves so we could use them. Yes they were really that bad.
Upside - very comfortable bed, convenient location, short walk to Burnside shopping centre. Would stay again but would take own linen, definitely towels.

We booked in advance after checking Trip Advisor and were offered 4 nights at $75 a night – outstanding value for accommodation of this standard so close to the city.
The room was much larger than average with a kitchenette supplying crockery, cutlery, microwave, kettle, toaster, fridge and tea/coffee etc. The compact shower/toilet room was fine but the toilet pan was not fixed to the floor – perhaps the cleaners didn’t notice this. The efficient air conditioning was quiet and made for a comfortable night’s sleep. The room had been painted recently and the carpet also seemed new. The bed was very comfortable and the soft pillows could be swapped for firmer ones which were in the top of the wardrobe with extra blankets if required.
The Granada offers free internet and this was instrumental in our choosing the motel. While the internet was appreciated, it was very slow at times, and required cancelling and re-opening sites to get them to work properly. Nevertheless, free wifi is a real bonus and very necessary for my wife and I.
Although the motel is situated on a busy road, the noise in the room was barely audible. Parking is limited and on 2 nights I could not park near our room, but the parking was still secure and in the motel’s courtyard. It’s only a 5 minute drive to the heart of the city and is in an excellent central location with easy access to the outer suburbs and the picturesque Adelaide hills.
In summary, the Adelaide Granada Motor Inn provides good quality accommodation at a reasonable price at a central location close the city. We’ll be staying there again when we return.

We arrived early and given an upgraded room. A fine comfortable room and able to catch up on some sleep as just arrived from kuala lumpur overnight. You need to hire a car at the airport to arrive at this hotel, but it's very convenient for the city and the beaches. All in all a good stay at reasonable prices

The room was great and the staff where excellent. We arrived after 1am in the morning from Sydney and the staff could not have been more helpful.It was a heat wave at the time, so aircon was great. We would recommend it to family and friends.

We spent 4 nights here. It was central to everything we needed, just 10 minutes to the city. Rooms very clean and a fantastic airconditioner. With temperatures in the high 40s this was a great place to rest and cool down

Good size rooms, with small kitchenette, kettle, microwave and fridge. Very clean and the staff where friendly. Good value for money. Pool was small. Near enough to a few shops and restaurants. Would recommend the Granada to friends and family.
