Glenelg Motel is located very close to the coast to the SW of Adelaide city centre. It is within 5-10 minutes walk of the commercial heart of Glenelg with dozens of restaurants and fast food places on Jetty Road. It's also the terminus of the tram line into central Adelaide if you don't want to drive. Our room in the...

Close to airport & pier/marina (decent walk though, so consider Uber/taxi in inclement/hot weather).Check in was permitted well ahead of normal check in time as room was ready, which was very much appreciated. Clean, basic room & surroundings. Politely speaking, you get what you pay for. Air conditioning was quiet & worked a treat in the heat. Good shower pressure...

This is the second time we've stayed here on visits to Adelaide and it was just as good as we remembered it. Large comfortable rooms, with sofa and desk. There's a pool to cool off in - or you can wander down to the beach in only 10 to 15 minutes. Free wifi. The staff are helpful and friendly, and...

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.
