Ensenada Motor Inn and Suites
Ranked #5 of 7 Hotels in Glenelg
Reviewed 19 October 2013

We stayed here for 2 nights and found this Motor Inn average for the price. It was expensive and relied on the location. The bed was very comfortable and the quality of the linen excellent. It was clean but needed some maintenance on faulty blinds and squeaky doors.
There are a lot of workers staying there and they are noisy very early in the morning. Also, don't stay on the side where the kitchen and laundry are as you will get a lot of noise from a very early hour.

Stayed: October 2013

Great rooms and even better location. The staff is very helpful. One block from the beach is a perfect location. The tram line is right there. Off street parking is available plus laundry facilities. This is my second stay here and yes, I would return in a flash!

Room Tip: Get a room off the main street so it will be quieter.

I must compliment the staff of the Ensenada for their level of service. Everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful. We were actually shown to our room which was a revelation. The hotel is clean and in good condition and of course the location is ideal for a visit to Adelaide and regions.

I stayed here for two nights while in Adelaide on business.

The hotel is situated right in the thick of the action in Glenelg, with restaurants, bars, take away, tram and the esplanade all right there, very convenient.

The hotel itself is old looking from the outside, and even when you go into reception, and walk up the stairs and through the corridors, it looks a bit old and tired, but when you step into your room you will be pleasantly surprised. The rooms have been tastefully refurbished, and it has a nice modern but still cosy feel.

The bed and pillows are comfortable, and the lounge and table & chairs are also comfy. The room has all that you need. The bathroom has also been reno'd and looks good. It had a auto smelly thingy on the wall, which kept making a "pppffftt" sound, which got annoying, so I turned it off. One thing was the shower gel.... it was truly awful, it smelt like a commercial cleaning agent.

I had issues with the internet that took about 2 hours to resolve, but the staff were helpful and did make sure it was fixed, which was appreciated.

The room service breakfast was really good.... I asked for crispy bacon, and normally that request gets ignored by a hotel, but this was spot on, just exactly how I like it.

I got a great deal, and this was a really good value place to stay. Next time I am in Adelaide, I will be coming back here to stay.

We stayed for one night in Glenelg and hadnt booked anywhere to stay and found this hotel to be in a perfect position for an overnight stay. It is right in the heart of Glenelg, close to the restaurants and shops and a very short stroll to the pier.

The room was clean, quiet, bathroom was nice, service was good. The car park was secure, behind locked gates. Price was reasonable, $120 for the night.

We didn't eat at the hotel so can't comment on that.

The hotel is situated in Glenelg a suburb of Adelaide, the trams to Adelaide centre start from the promenade in Glenelg a stone's throw from the hotel; they are a very pleasant and convenient way to travel into town. Gelnelg itself is a bustling seaside town of character and charm, there are numerous restaurants and bars to while away the evenings. The hotel itself is very comfortable, clean and well equipped. The staff are friendly and helpful, there is also a secure car park for guests and a laundry for guest use. It has no restaurant, but there are plenty of places nearby where an excellent breakfast may be had.

Stayed here 2 nights and the part that initially sold it for us was the included secure parking, at no additional cost. We had booked the executive room, so had expected it to be smaller and more basic. It was clean and comfortable, locate nice and close to the beach and shopping precinct. The only down side with the executive was we had a very early start when people were leaving early and having showers. The pipe work and people walking past was a bit disruptive. So the really basic rooms are nice but not completely soundproof. That aside we did enjoy our stay. And they washed our windscreen. nice touch. thank you
