Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Good value motor inn. Very clean, everything in the room is functional and works. Good air-conditioning unit and very comfortable beds. The sound on the tv was a bit tinny, but if you put the subtitle/captions on it solves the problem. The room has everything that you need for a comfortable short stay, kettle, toaster, crockery, hair dryer and microwave which is very convenient. Loads of power points and USB charging point near your bed. Good lighting and good sized room. The bathroom is dated, but functional and clean. Parking right outside your unit. Onsite laundry and walking distance to restaurants and supermarkets.

Great location, comfy bed, clean, and kitted out with all the basics you need for a short stay (wifi, fridge, microwave, crockery etc). Quaint 60s built in furniture could appeal to the retro crowd! The Foodland supermarket a short walk away is exceptional. I will definitely use again in the future.

Don’t judge a book by its cover. The outside is a bit dated only Our room was so nice and clean and new renovated. The bed is so comfy. The owners and staff are so friendly and accommodating There is a nice outdoor area to sit in at the back of the property Close to everything you will need like pubs, shops, diners, coffee shops and super markets Bus stop across the road to head to the city

This motel is very well situated, easy access to the city and surrounded by good places to dine. Rooms are particularly good, not luxurious but very clean, neat and comfortable. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Have stayed there many times. Would advise booking early as others have found this little gem and quite often booked out. Which shows the quality of this motel. Not 5 star but everything we need for Adelaide accommodation.

Booked into this place for 1 week and advise as follows, if your looking for gold plated taps forget it but if you want honest clean tidy accommodation at a really great rate then this is the place, plenty of hot water for the showers (dont have to wait 3 minutes while it heats up), parking right outside the door, all the gear for tea/coffee and toast, great tv, perfect wifi, and a really comfortable bed (and i have a bad back), plenty of restaurants, a hotel, large IGA, bottle shop, all within 5 minutes walk, very close to Adelaide and has public transport close by, friendly owners that did not hesitate to refund the nights that we had to abandon due to covid shut down, would not hesitate to stay again.

Well considering the manager hung up the phone when I asked if there were rooms available in a wet wild night When he said none available despite the internet quoting 3 rooms after a long drive Seems a bit odd!!!!

Thank you, We are one of the few Motels which answer the phone after hours. Reception closes at 9.00pm, however because of the convenience of Mobile phones most people who are arriving late advise us whilst en-route if they are delayed and we arrange for a key to be placed in a key safe. It is a good efficient process. Perhaps consider that for next time. Regards Lynda & Scott.

Stayed here for a week for work and I can say that the price was very reasonable. Need to remember that this is a much older motel that had been refurbished to give it a modern look. The room I stayed in was small but perfect for me and was very comfortbale with a double bed that was large enough. TV was a smaller flat screen but was ok. Had a fridge and microwave with kettle and plates and a bowls and some spoons, knives and forks. Ironing board and iron if you need it. The shower area was clean with the walls having some cracks but you can overlook all that with the shower head excellent and pressure was great for a nice shower. The people were very friendly and they cleaned the rooms everyday. Its close to everywhere in Adelaide, a number of restaurants nearby and McDonalds a 3 minute walk away. It is on a busy road and the traffic noise at night can be loud. I could hear people talking loudly next door but they did eventually become quite for a good nights sleep. Parking for vehicles in the middle and that can a be a bit tight, Has front and rear access. If you need something cheap, this is good. I have stayed down the road further at another cheaper place and it wasnt as good, and busier.

Stayed for a number of days in late October due to an illness in the family. Originally had only booked for one night due to family making other bookings, however decided to extend the stay due to the outstanding level of service provided. For the price, rooms are of an excellent standard, and in the past I have paid a lot more for less, and to be honest I was very pleasantly surprised on arrival. The management are outstanding, empathetic people, who were lovely to deal with, and extremely helpful. Guaranteed that I will be recommending Frewville Motor Inn to friends, family and colleagues, and next time I am in Adelaide, I will not be staying anywhere else.
