A good old style Australian motel owned by a family. Efficient and friendly staff from check in, breakfast to cleaners. We stayed for a week and all staff were accommodating in meeting our needs. An easy walk to Gelnelg cafe and restaurants and the beach. Very affordable and quality fresh breakfast selections.

The rooms are large and comfortable. They are serviced daily with clean towels. You only need to bring your clothes and toothbrush as all else is provided. The owners are friendly and nothing is a problem. Close to both the airport, Glenelg Beach and Jetty Road.

We visited during the summer months and so we enjoyed poolside BBQ's and Christmas festivities. Our rooms was clean and comfortable with an excellent shower, free Wi-Fi and heating/cooling. The rooms are quiet despite the busy season. The kids loved the pool, cartoons and friendly staff. Also, the hotel is walking distance to all Glenelg attractions and PT.

We passed two days at this very nice motel. It is situated at the A15 close to the Waterfront (5-10min) wlking distance. Our room had a large size with a double and two single beds.

My wife and me stayed overnight at Glenelg Motel on our way up to Port Augusta and found the rooms noisy- we could hear planes taking-off/landing and traffic at night. We are not light sleepers and we ended up having a weary night. Having one of the hostess come over to the room at 9:15 to 'remind' us check-out was...

Have stayed here several times, and have always had great service, friendly helpful staff, clean quiet rooms, and in a convenient place for Glenelg, tram service is good to get you to the city. This motel is also not far from the airport,

We arrived on the Friday evening and were greeted by a very friendly and help receptionist and nothing was too much towards helping us. The room although a bit dated was very comfortable. We will be staying there again.
