Ensenada Motor Inn and Suites
Ranked #5 of 7 Hotels in Glenelg
Reviewed 1 February 2012

Stayed 4 nights in excutive room in late Jan 2012 when visiting Adelaide for the cricket test. The room was clean & well serviced, plenty of wardbrobe space, bed Ok but pillows were a bit hard for me which is why I rate sleep quality average. Staff polite & helpful, Pay TV, barfridge stocked & competitive pricing, plenty of eateries within a stroll incl Dublin Hotel, lots of cold beer close by, little bit noisy when garbos start early, but this is a very popular & delightful holiday location & parks are clean. Looking forward to my next visit. Glenelg tram takes 40 minutes to city, & is free at certain times for Senior Card holders & other oldies, Tram departs every 20 minutes. Four stops to Morphetville race course.

The location for this hotel is excellent. It’s close to the beach, shops and restaurants,
with a tram stop nearby which will take you into the centre of Adelaide. The hotel is in pristine condition with nicely furbished, clean and comfortable rooms and friendly staff.

In Nov 2011 I spent several nights at the Best Western Glenelg outside of Adelaide. It was a good location in that the tram from the centre of Adelaide stopped less than 200 meters from the hotel. The tram was a about a 20 minute ride. Accomodations very clean and up to date. Lots of nearby services and dining. Lots of beach activity. The staff was very helpful.

We stayed here about 5 years ago and have just stayed again for one night. We enjoyed our previous stay and also this one. The rooms are on the smaller side, but you still have plenty of room to move around. The rooms have been refurbished to a very modern style and are spotlessly clean and smell very fresh. The bed was very comfortable which is always a bonus when you stay away. The air-conditioner was already turned on in our room when we arrived, which was great considering how hot it was outside. we could hear no noise from other rooms or passing traffic so it is in a great location.All staff, from reception to cleaners, are very friendly and extremely helpful.Location is great with just a very short short walk to Glenelg beach or Jetty Road for shopping and eating. You can leave your car in the carpark (which is secured overnight) and either walk to catch the tram which is just a short walk or catch a taxi. There are a few steps to climb with your luggage but you would only have to ask for asistance and someone would be happy to help. The room is reasonably priced and especially considering we payed $40.00 more for a room the night before in another motel where the air-conditioner didn't work and the rooms weren't all that clean.Well done Ensenada Motor Inn Glenelg - next time we will be back to stay for a week.

The best thing about this motel is the location, just around the corner from the beach and Glenelg restaurants and cafes.
The Motel itself is clean enough, very "70s" looking decor, and small rooms. The bed and pillows felt like slabs of concrete- not comfortable.
There are lots of stairs, as people have mentioned...not good if you are lugging suitcases up and down.
The walls are paper thin. I could hear the people next door using their bathroom (you know what I mean) and the whole night I had trouble sleeping because of noise.
