                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.

                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

                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 :)

                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!

                Cannot think of any

                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.

                Big room, easy parking, safe, secure

                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.

                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

                Very clean, room updated by good choice of furnishings, very friendly staff

                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.

                Comfortable rooms, quiet despite highway location, good value for money.

                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.

                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.
