                  Good Basic stay in Adelaide”

                  We stayed here for a night. Very basic accommodation, but great value! Room was clean and had a decent AC system. Bathroom was older and dated but functional. The pool was out of action during our time here which was a bit disappointing as was the parking charge which we didnt end up paying as there is plenty of free parking on the street. Overall if you need a quick place to stay, its perfect.

                  Price Location

                  I stay here often when I need a bed in Adelaide (I live in rural SA and often need to stay overnight in the city). It is a basic & comfortable motel & for me ideally located on South Tce. It's a short walk to catch either bus or tram. It's close to St Andrew's Hospital where I'm an out-patient. The winning factor is the price given its CBD location. I've never eaten here so I have no idea about the quality of the dining/breakfast experience. They have tea/coffee facilities in the room and an ironing board. Yes it's very basic but perfect for my over-night needs.

                  The room was big for two people. Bathroom upgraded=clean, Shower not stinky bath=extremely good. Location is excellent, on foot or wheels. However, car park get filled quickly. My only gripe, the air cond unit. It's too knackered and it shows; hence almost all the rooms (all GF units i lived in, at least) are chilly during winter, toasty warm during summer. I really wished they were the other way around. Other than that it's an all rounder in a perfect location.

                  The room was clean, heater warmed us up. The bathroom was a bit dated but looks aside everything worked well and was clean and stocked with soap and shampoo. CON $5 charge for parking which was not made clear when booking via agoda and we discovered the extra charge on arrival.

                  This property was earmarked for redevelopment, so I doubt it will still be there when we go back to Adelaide. However, we loved our stay there. It was reasonably priced. OK, it's looking pretty tired and they obviously don't intend to spend money on it, but it was clean and in the perfect position for sightseeing around Adelaide. Do hope if they replace it with another hotel that it won't be priced through the roof.

                  Good location and really value for money.”

                  Cheap accommodation near the center of Adelaide. Good size room and location which is not far from CBD,big park straight cross the road. Good to access everywhere we want to go. Restaurants are around the corner for you to choose. Personally I love the Thai Chef restaurant there, they have beautiful food come with big portion,really value for money as well. The accommodation is old,but they dont charge you heaps either,so dont get wrong expectations if you are after fancy hotel,go to Sage hotel or Chiefly hotel next door or somewhere else.

                  Pros: with 2 young boys being opposite a hugr playground was great. Great location in cbd. Were given option to upgrade to the sage hotel (should have taken offer for more comfortable room) Cons: outdated (hotel is being demolished ) wifi was not working dure to low singnals. Would stay again as we only used the room for sleeping wouldn't recommend this for people who want to spend lots of time in the room.
