Due to an airline issue I was forced to stay overnight. This facility located 5 minutes from Airport Terminal. For purely a place to sleep this property was adequate. Found some cockroaches in the spare pillows stored in the linen cupboard. The main issue was the "Key Security Fee" being $200.00. Not even a 5 star Hotel requires this (Usually...

Stayed here as motel was close to airport. Motel had the basic amenities, clean, comfortable, staff were quite good, meals were ok, but were surprised when we paid for the one night stay, as we were leaving early to catch a flight they asked for a $200 credit card deposit also which would be returned in 3-5 business days. We...

Good quality and great people Not the Hilton bit a really good place to stay. The shuttle to the airport is a great bonus. Meals are well cooked and the service is fantastic. Rooms are clean and well maintained, I stay there regularly and have never been disappointed.

A hot day exploring Adelaide district mining sites meant I was dry and thirsty on checking in at the Aviators Lodge on Tapleys Hill Road, West Beach, Adelaide. Disappointingly, the room refrigerator did not contain any cool water nor was there any bottled water in evidence to purchase, but this was not the first disappointment connected with this visit. I...

I don't know where to begin. So we show up too early for check-in and room isn't ready. No problem - that's on us. By 2pm I'm getting emails telling me that I have to check in and reminding me of their 'Terms and Conditions'. Ok - I reply that we'll be along shortly. Turns out that they are in...

I recently stayed at the Aviators Lodge when I had friends and family visit. I have stayed here previously about 6 years ago. I choose the hotel due to the close proximity to the airport. Not much has changed in that time. The rooms are comfortable and a good size. The beds are very comfortable and will ensure a good...

Stayed one night. Was able to arrange an early check in due to travel commitments. Staff at the motel are fantastic. Stayed in a renovated room. Was just what I needed for one night. Easy drive to the airport. A shuttle bus operates also.
