“Good average motel, well positioned”
Reviewed 26 June 2012

We have stayed here lots of times. The motel is very ordinary, but quite comfortable with most things you need provided. On a main road, but with the units set back somewhat with little traffic noise. Units are getting to the point where they need some TLC but still acceptable for a short stay.

It's about 5 minutes walk from the tram stop with regular service to central Adelaide and to Glenelg so no problems with going out (or coming back) in the evening.

The swimming pool seems to be closed - whether for winter or longer, I can't say.

Room Tip: Ask for a ground floor unit so you can park outside and get luggage in and out of rooms easily - oth...

Needless to say it was definitely not the Hilton, but I like this hotel because of its location and ease of access to things like the train into the city and glenelg and restaurants close by and plenty of other public transport at the door step. Daily room services where they come in and re-make your bed and change rubbish bin liners were a good touch.

The Motel rooms are a little run down and showing their age but still quite comfortable. The televisions are ancient boxes with only around 6 analogue channels with poor reception, no digital channels, this was very disappointing in this day and age. The rooms looked like they have not had a refurbishment in well over 15 years, maybe had a lick of paint not too many years ago as that didnt look too bad.
After i had a shower and walked down the side of the bed next to the bathroom i got my socks wet, obviously the shower recess is leaking through the wall into the living area making the carpet wet on the other side of the shower wall, now i know why it is all water stained there.

Other than that the grounds were well kept and clean, but having a blown light on the stairs made it dangerous climbing the stairs at night time as you could not see them very well in the dark. The rooms had heating and cooling which is great for Adelaide.
The pool was out of action while I was there, not sure why but looked like it had been unused for quite some time now.
Managers were helpful, no problems there, office had long hours of 7am-8.30pm.

The cheap price makes everything ok, i definitely wouldnt pay any more than $90/night for it, but will definitely be returning on my next trip to adelaide.

Room Tip: a room away from the car park next door and away from the road would be a quiet room, dont go for ro...
