Because there hasn't much else. Rooms okay, price very good, staff friendly (other than the checkin) $200 upfront charge way overdone for what is really budget accomodation, and a handful of Foxtel channels isn't quite Foxtel. But ... great location.

The staff were very helpful in arranging early check in as we were attending a wedding. The room was very clean and was spacious with nice view over Marina. Within very easy walking distance to great eating venues in Jetty Street and at Marina as well as Kids activity park

Two minutes walk to marina and main street. Older style room that was large . In a great central position which is within walking distance of all Glenelgs attractions and plenty of restaurants. When compared in price to other Glenelg motels this is a bargain.

Selected this place for a night because of its location but at $110 per night it was great value. Close to the beach and Glenelg's main shopping area and we found it quiet. Friendly, efficient reception. The room was clean and comfortable and we have paid more for inferior rooms.

I think my title says it all. Not expensive. Basic accommodation. Typical old fashioned motel style. If you just want a bed in a good spot to base yourself from - this is it. If you want to impress someone with a weekend away ... go across the road to Oaks. Much more expensive though!!!!

Good price and location however the motel is located on a busy road with the noise a bit disruptive at night. Older style motel in need of updating and needs to be cleaned more thoroughly. The rooms were a good size with no real facilities Ok for a overnight stop off. Service was friendly.

Stayed for two nights and found the location excellent, close to Jetty Road. The rooms seem to have recently been revamped. Very comfortable beds and soft pillows. Extremely clean and tidy. Comfortable stay.

If you are looking for a clean comfortable no frills hotel this will serve the purpose. A place to sleep shower and get out and about, not to spend the day in. Close to excellent restaurants, friendly, helpful check in. Just right when there for a purpose and wanting economical clean sleeping quarters
