Value for money budget hotel”
Understanding that this is an old budget motel on a busy road it is good value for money. My experince was the staff responded positively and happily to a special request. I closed the window at night so the traffic noise was not an issue. The room was well laid out. Beds were comfortable. Everything was clean. Convenient to the city.
Good value for money... but not very clean. Very dirty underneath beds and hairs still left over in the shower
No towel, no heating, no a.c. no hlobedib either rubbishy bedside lamps.”
So bad that I cancelled my further booking.
Hi peter we can't understand why people lie. If 3 towels not enough we can't provide more. Each room has reversible aircon if you don't know how to use should ask at reception.
Nice rooms, low key but still in a perfect location”
Perfect. No fuss , friendly staff and nice clean rooms
Convenient budget accommodation”
The host is excellent. The rooms are old but clean and functional. Convenient to the city. Tend not to notice the road noise.
Convenient but boisy”
I rated it high as it is in a very convenient location when travelling, but the negative for location means you get traffic noise. As it is on a hill, the truck noises are extra loud. The room was clean and basic. Good value. Unfortunately “noise” from another room kept me awake most of the night. Not sure if this “noise” is a regular feature or I was just unlucky. Assuming I was unlucky, I’ve rated the hotel well, as it was value for the price
Lovely & Comfortable”
Our room was clean and tidy and the beds were super comfortable. It was very well equipped with plates, bowls, proper sized mugs, cutlery, toaster, and microwave which you rarely find in a motel room - and of course the standard kettle, hair dryer etc. Graham at the front desk was really friendly and helpful - going as far as supplying me with cleaning products to clean the (full large McDonalds) coffee my dear daughter had spilled on our way to Adelaide. The location was perfect as it was close to the city, shopping centres, supermarkets and a variety of restaurants and takeaways. We will definitely stay there again when next we're in Adelaide :)
Efficient and friendly!”
We had a very pleasant stay with our room overlooking a beautiful park. The rooms are comfortable and very neat (although older). We did not have any problems with noisy traffic even though it is close to the main road. The staff was friendly and efficient. Overall we had a wonderful experience and would not hesitate to stay there again. Thank you to everyone at Tollgate Motel!
Not so comfortable stay, but cheaper than most”
Only stayed one night. Customer service was good, gave us upper floor room as requested on booking. However the room was old and had old smoke smell, and noticed rooms on ground floor at car park away from main building were newer so requested a change. Again staff was accommodating and allowed us to change with a smile. Cheaper than most places and newer rooms are OK, but we prefer Adelaide Granada Motorinn anytime, closer to Burnside shopping and much more comfortable at similar prices. Only stayed here as it was fully booked.
Safe, secure, big rooms, but could use a paint job”
For the price, the room had everything in it and was quite bigger than expected, everything worked fine and I felt safe with my room being upstairs with cameras watching everyone who entered. Parking was secure and well off the road in its own car park. Staff were friendly. The only improvement would be to paint the walls, it's a very old looking room and a quick paint would bring it to life.
Great Location at foot of Adelaide hills. ♥ staff”
we enjoyed staying in this motel with spa. cheap overnight, not too noisy given the location, cheap furnishings though let it down a little. curtains not blacked out enough for street lights. spa is older and needed a good scrub and fittings to make it more appealing. milk portions too small for more than 2 cuppas as is often the case with motels. good enough though for pricing, will stay again! thankyou
Clean and pleasant”
Pro's: This motel is easy to find, has ample parking, is very clean, with plenty of bedding and great customer service. The pool and room, though older, were spotlessly clean, and updated with well chosen furnishings and linen to provide a modern feel. We checked in very late, but we still greeted warmly, and felt very welcome here. Con's Motel is next to a highway and the room we stayed in had an older air conditioner. While this did not bother us (we slept solidly for both of our 2 nights), it may be of concern for the extremely light sleeper.
Short stay but would reccommend”
we arrived at the airport quite late and left quite early in the morning so didn't have long here but it was a nice place. the owner was very friendly and helpful and the room had everything we needed. the pool was a bit old but was ok nonetheless. generally nice motel with good standard rooms and service. the only food we had here was takeaway so below rating for food doesn't really apply.
Older style motel set in green setting close 2 CBD”
we wanted a motel close to adelaide city but not at 5 star prices. the tollgate was all of this and more. we were totally surprised that at only 5.5 kms out from the cbd, the motel was situated right at the bottom of mt osmond which made for a very enjoyable scenic drive around that part of the adelaide hills. some fantastic views overlooking the city can be seen from a number of lookouts on this reasonably short drive which starts virtually from your motel room door. despite being on a major highway, our room was well insulated keeping traffic noise to an absolute minimum.
Small, clean room - obliging and friendly service”
we enjoyed our stay at the tollgate as all of the facilities were clean and comfortable. access to feeder roads to the city of adelaide and the southern suburbs was easy. the staff were very respectful, cheerful and helpful. each room had parking out the front of it with some having shady trees. we have rebooked for the next 2 weeks as my husband needs to return for medical appointments.
Staff were rude and unwelcoming. Need to exercise better social skills and as the try smiling!
Nice stay ”
Look a little bit old but everything all right.One night stay in the spa double room.Provided lots of towels.
Travelling Perth to Melbourne”
Great location, great value for money.

not problems good wifi clean
Noisy, but well located.”
Right on the start of the SE Freeway, all trucks, all night going up hill. The location is very good with access to Adelaide and to the SE of South Australia. Motel is tired and definitely needs work. Staff great and work hard.
