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.

We needed a couple of nights to rest and recuperate after flying from the US East Coast, driving from Adelaide and then diving in Whyalla with the cuttlefish in the cold water. The Comfort inn was great. The room was comfortable and quite and faced into a lovely courtyard. The bed and pillows were good. The team at the resort friendly and professional. Great value for the money. We didn’t use all the rooms amenities, but we easily could have stayed longer if needed. Only drawback was that the Wifi was unusably slow in our room, but fine in the lobby.

Hotel's Favourite
This was a mid-week work related stay of two nights. Check-in was a breeze by friendly staff who man the office during business hours. On site restaurant is open to public as well so check whether you need to book early. We like to explore so we didn't eat there. The rooms are spacious and nicely renovated. My single room included a 2 seat sofa and sandwich press on top of usual tea/ coffee facilities and fridge. A sliding door takes you out to the pool which I wasnt packed for so didn't partake of. The room air conditioning is more than sufficient to keep you cool and you can leave it on while you're out, staff will not turn it off. Renovations left the room with a fresh feel in the bathroom etc however the choice of paint colour still dates the rooms with that dull beige. Water pressure was marvellous even though the shower curtain really can't contain the spray, expect the area to get wet. Built in wardrobe could have been thought out a little better and if you're only 5 foot 5, you will struggle with hanging clothes. I gave up. Plenty of storage though. My room had an iron scorch mark on the carpet and the beside lamps either didn't work or weren't plugged in. With cables behind the bed, I couldn't be bothered fighting with it. Comfortable bed with nice quality bedding. My biggest surprise was on day two when I returned in the afternoon to find a set of dishes and cutlery for me. The staff had obviously seen my collapsible bowl in the bathroom and realised I was purchasing ready-made meals from the local supermarket and dining in room. That was very much appreciated as I had forgotten some of my travel cutlery. Overall, a pleasant stay with unexplored amenities I will come prepared for next time. I would definitely recommend considering this accommodation while in Whyalla. Almost forgot the complimentary windscreen wash! Another surprise after driving all day the previous day. Jumped into the car to note a little tag under the window wiper and nice clean window. Bonus points that will get my return business.

Got off to shaky start, money taken out of credit card before arrival, which I detest no staff upon check in. Asked for real milk, no way, despite kitchen, restaurant on site. room good, clean and tidy, bonus opening french door. Tiny oddly configured shower, toilet and vanity. Website states it has Foxtel, but it doesnt. Was offered a $12 breakfast package in lieue, not worth $8 in my opinion. not much shelf space for luggage but comfortable and modern. percys restauarant great service , good food

It was a 40+ degree day and we booked so that we could use the pool after a long drive. After 10 mins into being in the pool we realised we were covered in blue paint. We told the girl at the desk what we had experienced and she advised it had been approved by the local council and that it was safe to swim in. She proceeded to say that it would only be harmful if we licked the bottom of the pool! I'm angry that if she knew there was a problem that she should have told this to us when we checked in. It was a horrible experience and we will never be back.

We stayed at this motel on two separate occasions for one night each time. The first room we stayed in had red wine stains on the carpet and ripped sheer curtains. Not a very good first impression. The bed was comfortable and the shower water pressure was good. The second stay saw us in a different room which was much better, no stains on the carpet and the sheers were intact. Overall, the motel is OK however a little overpriced for what you get.

We stayed in Whyalla overnight and the room was very clean and comfortable. The little kitchenette is a nice extra if you are planning on staying a few days. The in house food was very good. You better make a booking if you are dining at Percy's in the Alexander on the weekend, it's a very popular local restaurant. Craig was very accommodating, we will stay again.

We spent one night at the Alexander and couldnt have been happier. The room was clean, quiet and very spacious. I think the bed was the most comfortable one I have slept on in a long time. The staff were really friendly and attentive and we had a beautiful meal at the restaurant 'Percys'.
