“Short term stay in adelaide”
Reviewed 24 January 2013 via mobile

Cheap accommodation, room slept 6, we could only get one night via booking.com so we had too be on. Front desk was friendly. Rooms are nest and clean. TV is far to high for comfortable viewing, if you arrive past 9pm to check in you cannot access the front desk, seems a bit strange when we all know travel plans sometimes go awry outside of our control. There are plenty of comparable motels closer to glenelg jetty and foreshore.

Only ten minutes by car from the Airport and a ten minute walk to the beach and shops, this is a great little place to stay. It's clean and quiet and although it could do with modernising, the room was spacious and had everything we required, especially when you consider how inexpensive it is compared with the newer motels closer to the beach.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Glenelg Motel & there is a reason that it is a lot cheaper than a lot of other properties in Glenelg. Although the rooms were clean enough, the motel is tired and needs an update. The major annoyance for us was that the windows couldn't be opened, even though the rooms are all on the ground floor. This meant that we had to use the air conditioner at night to get some air flow in the room, and believe me, it was the noisest air conditioner ever! The motel really needs to invest in some new split system air conditioners - or have windows that can be opened. We found the staff 'welcome' when we arrived as being rather disinterested, although the staff member when we left was pleasant and helpful. Overall, I guess you get what you pay for.

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.
