This is not a luxury motel but rather a good value find. Rooms have been renovated in the last 5 years but are not brand new. Premium bedding is not my definition but theirs - I didnt find it premium. No opening windows but airconditioning worked well. car parking can be a hassle as it gets bottlenecked at night ....

We stayed in a deluxe queen room, the bed and pillows were the most comfortable we have ever had in a motel! It was also very quiet at night so we got good sleeps. Breakfast was very good value and very nice with a friendly chatty manageress. Only a short walk to restaurants and sea front.

We picked this accommodation because of its close proximity to Glenelg Beach but we were very disappointed with the layout of the room and the cleanliness. We paid extra for a Spa room but we were unable to use it because of the height of the Spa bath as we had to climb up one step and then climb into...

We enjoyed being close to the beaches and short drive to the city and all amenities. Our room was well maintained and comfortable. We found all the staff very accomodating and they went out of their way to ensure we had a pleasant stay.

If the wind is from west you might be disturbed by planes taking off the Adelaide airport, even less than one minute interval. Mostly quiet. Parking in front of room is too tight. Bigger cars/trucks cannot get out without you waking up early to move your car. Still great room, spacious, clean and tidy, cozy. Convenient connections, walking distance to...

Friendly staff, comfortable room, all rooms on the ground floor with a parking space. Good guest laundry with washing line and pegs. Disconcerting to find grating above shower was displaced and looked filthy.

Glenelg Motel is located very close to the coast to the SW of Adelaide city centre. It is within 5-10 minutes walk of the commercial heart of Glenelg with dozens of restaurants and fast food places on Jetty Road. It's also the terminus of the tram line into central Adelaide if you don't want to drive. Our room in the...

Close to airport & pier/marina (decent walk though, so consider Uber/taxi in inclement/hot weather).Check in was permitted well ahead of normal check in time as room was ready, which was very much appreciated. Clean, basic room & surroundings. Politely speaking, you get what you pay for. Air conditioning was quiet & worked a treat in the heat. Good shower pressure...

This is the second time we've stayed here on visits to Adelaide and it was just as good as we remembered it. Large comfortable rooms, with sofa and desk. There's a pool to cool off in - or you can wander down to the beach in only 10 to 15 minutes. Free wifi. The staff are helpful and friendly, and...

Have driven past this motel many times on our way to something abit closer to the beach we decided to give it a try. I must say this is great value for money, clean comfortable, very friendly staff, good size rooms and the pool is fantastic. There is a full breakfast menu at a very reasonable price available.
