Met by a very friendly host at check in. She offered to arrange me a taxi for an early flight the next day and was overall very welcoming. Hotel is very dated but is good for a stay near the airport if you have an early flight. Tea and coffee facilities and shampoo/soap in the bathroom. Nothing to dislike but...

This stay was excellent value for money. We only required somewhere to sleep whilst we were in transit between flights. They organised their shuttle to collect us from the airport for a very reasonable price and then liaised with the local taxi company for an extremely early pick up the following morning. The suite was very clean and the bed...

This place is very close to the airport, which is the only reason anyone should stay here. No degree of staff pleasantness can compensate for the feeling of being royally ripped off. I paid $165 AU ( unfortunately booked through Booking.com), for accommodations/amenities worth approximately $75. No toiletries, no ice, right on noisy street ( ironically cannot hear airplanes). Motel...

If you are flying out of Adelaide, this motel is handy. That is about all we could say. We were put in room one on the street and had to sleep with ear plugs. The room is small and old,but there is a washer and dryer on property for a very small cost. The dinner in the restaurant of fair....

Nice clean room, very accommodating staff for late arrivals. Shuttle bus to airport is super convenient. We stayed on business and my colleagues asked to stay there again on our next trip to Adelaide.

We stayed here on a Saturday to catch an early Sunday flight. At arrival we were welcomed by friendly staff who booked our taxi for the next morning and gave us some directions to the closest place to eat. Being a Saturday means that the restaurant was closed. As this is not a very touristic area we had to walk...

When I turned up after a long flight, I was met by incredibly rude staff who I can only assume were the owners of the motel. Made to feel like a inconvinience and completely unwelcome. If I hadn't been left there by the taxi I would have jumped straight back in and found somewhere else to stay. The only good...

Stayed overnight at short notice, manager looked after us well providing good information on local eateries. Room was clean and well maintained, shower was excellent. A large shopping centre is located in walking distance. Thoroughly recommend it for a stay. Has good off street parking too.

Close and cheap taxi ride from the airport. No thrills room but clean and tidy with a comfortable bed ONE MAJOR thing wrong was the day before they took $200 out of our bank account. Way more than we paid for the room. Never had this before, even when we've stayed in 5* they've only taken $100 at the time...
