“Comfortable stay and friendly staff”
Reviewed 8 February 2013

I have stayed at the Pavlos motel frequently for business travel and have always found the owners to be friendly and helpful. They welcomed me by name and were always happy to help. The rooms and comfortable and tidy. Just what you want after a long days work. Overall excellent service and excellent value for money.

My family of 5 just recently stayed at this motel. The staff were very welcoming and very helpful. When I rang to book the motel the staff inform me that the cars are parked out the front of the building and we would have to walk to our room. We did have rooms that were right to the back of the motel. My mum had a mobility scooter and she used this to travel to our room. Staff were more then happy for mum to have the scooter at the front of our room, so we could charge it up. The family room was very roomy for us and we had our other family beside us. The ideal place to finding things in Adelaide. If I ever go back to Adelaide I would go ahead and book at this motel again.

Why did I ever select this place? I thought it was near to the airport (according to Agoda). It's on the side of a grubby main road in a sprawling urban area of second hand car shops and convenient to nowhere. A A$50 taxi ride from the airport I'd have been better off paying more to stay on the airport. Noisy, grubby, poorly maintained, worst tile job I've ever seen in the toilet/shower. Shocking value for money but then again the whole of Australia is. Only positive is that the reception man and lady were friendly and helpful.

This may not be the most modern motel around but it is clean and represents value for money. Just stayed for one night and even though it is on the main road the noise did not bother us. I guess being from Sydney we are used to lots of road noise, but it really was fairly quiet for a week night. I would recommend this motel to others,just don't expect the Hilton.

We stayed here for 3 nights. The owners and staff were very friendly and went out of their way to help.

The rooms were clean, everything worked and for the price it was very good accommodation. It's not the Hilton, but it doesn't charge at Hilton prices. However if you're looking for budget accommodation in the inner northern suburbs of Adelaide you can't go past Pavlos.

We will definitely stay again, and would recommend it.

We chose this hotel as it was recommended by a friend who had stayed here previously and was close to the venue we were attending the next day.

Our flight was delayed so we got in much later than anticipated. We had forewarned the hotel, so despite reception being closed, they left the key out for us and had turned on the heating so it was wonderful to arrive to a welcoming room.

Room is basic, we had one with three single beds for one adult and two teenagers so a bit small & squeezy, but as we only needed somewhere to sleep for one night it was sufficient. Bathroom small but overall it was clean and the shower was nice & hot.

Beds & pillows were comfortable and as it was the middle of winter, there are electric blankets on the beds which were very welcomed!

For comfortable, affordable short stay accommodation, this motel is fine. You get what you pay for. Shane & Amanda Russell (owners) were fantastic with their service and communication.

Room Tip: Request a room at the rear of the motel as less likely to hear street noise from Main North Road.
