Booking.com Guest Review GuidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This allows us to verify that our reviews come from real guests like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or their comfortable room than someone who’s stayed at the property?
We want you to share your story, with both the good and the not-so-good. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinions and experiences, which is critical in helping guests make informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, so we treat them with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full and as quickly as possible, provided the guidelines are met. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
We'll use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content, and for the property responses to that content.
We'll allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is to be a feedback distributor for both guests and properties.
Guidelines and Standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly, without limiting expression or strong opinions. They're also applicable regardless of the comment's tone.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include hate speech, discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, or the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.

눉Mattress too soft and you tended to roll into the middle. Extractor fan in bathroom way too loud. Water pressure varied in the shower,get where you wanted the mix to be and it would drop off. To too hot or cold.
February 14, 2017
눉a Lift to carry luggage up two flights of stairs would have been nice.
눇Very clean well presented rooms. Enough space for an overnight stay. Good en-suite facilities. Professional pleasant staff
February 13, 2017
눉Very tied . Shower rose wouldn't stay up . Ice tray broken but was replaced .
눇Location . Rooms clean . At $200 / night I suppose value for money .
February 13, 2017
눉Property is a little tired, but all the positives make up for this. No hesitation to stay here again.
눇Excellent location, great and friendly service. Could not do enough for us.
February 12, 2017
눉The cutlery had dried up egg from who ever used it last. The air conditioner randomly started making awful noises at intervals through the night.
눇The bed was very comfortable. Nice to to have safe and free car parking on site. Brilliant shower. Staff lovely.
February 12, 2017
눉No microwave. Door was hard to close quietly when we were coming and going and trying to be quiet so as not to annoy others. TV volum was governed and found it hard to hear it.
눇Great sized room. Comfy beds. View from room.
February 11, 2017
눉We didn't realise that there wasn't a lift. My 66 yr old friend who has a number of health issues, had to pull both cases up the front stairs, one step at a time, as I couldn't do it, and there was no-one on, who was able to help us, that day. - We would stay there again if we could get the ground floor, via the back car park.
눇We loved the location, comfy bed and cleanliness. The sea was about 100 meters away, the tram to go into Adelaide was about 50 meters and bus stop across the road. Plenty of eating places. We really enjoyed our meals at the 'Jetty Bar' Bistro and 'Feed'.
February 6, 2017
눉Full length mirrors on back of bedroom doors would be appreciated
눇Self contained SEAVIEW Apartment. Fabulous view. Location to beach,eating out and public transport excellent

January 17, 2017
눉reception staff could be more friendly, you walk in door to get to your room or out, they rarely spoke to you or greeted you, bad form, you want your guests to come back. parking is limited, got full in the evenings maybe also because staff are also parking there too, this shouldnt be it is for the guests. cutlery- no spoons or knives , i brought my own and the bar fridge loaded up with their supplies, no room for your own sfuff
눇location of this hotel was spot on, couldnt ask for better, 2 minute walk to shops, restaurants and the beach. room was nice and comfortable, shower was very powerful, that was fantastic, bed was very comfy it was quiet despite being so close to everything
January 16, 2017
눉Check in time advertised as 2pm, called to advise we would be there on time. Still sitting at the desk at 2.25pm, waiting for cleaners to finish cleaning the room. Very rushed, disappointed 1st impression.
January 15, 2017
눉nothing really, the motel is not new but in good condition. Our only comment would be the gap between the vanity, shower and the toilet was a bit snug - glad we are only small in size
눇close to quick and easy transport so you can leave the car behind if going to the theatre or into the city
January 13, 2017
눉Room was too small for the amount of furniture in it so felt a bit clostophobic, air con didn't work that well and staff not over friendly.

January 3, 2017

눇View from our suite was amazing . Also the suite was large .

December 31, 2016
눉Rubbish bin in the kitchen overflowing and smelly. Peanuts on the carpet in the loungeroom. Also it was awkward being down the road from the Ensanada.
December 31, 2016
눇Everything we required was in the room even the ice tray was full. The noise level was minimual from the street leading to a good night sleep. We will be back
December 29, 2016

December 24, 2016

눇Fried eggs on toast
December 6, 2016
눉Our room was near the stairs and the walls were quite thin. Stayed for 3 nights and every night there were other loud guests come back to their rooms each night between 2am - 5am. Could hear other guests in showers and toilets flushing at these times as well.
눇The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room was very clean. Location fantastic.
December 4, 2016
눇My sister and I travelled as we had a nephews 18th party to attend. The owners were so lovely. We went for breakfast the next morning and had a continental selection. The owners came in with their own traditional noodle soup and offered us some. They served us a bowl, it was sooo yummy. Very friendly, we were very spoilt :)

November 17, 2016
눉You need new pillows to flat and lumpy.

November 13, 2016
눉Room was very small (looked bigger in picture). Desk and chairs very tight and not conducive to work. Noise from other rooms and in corridors was quite audible.
눇Excellent location and comfortable bed.
November 11, 2016
눉Not good for older people, the entrance have few steps up, no elevator !
눇Love the location, so central steps away on the tram to central market and downtown , steps away from the Glenelg Beach it is right on the heart of Glenelg , very great value for money!
November 5, 2016
눉Needed a little note for me to put to the cleaner to say I didn't want my towels cleaned. Just maybe a bit more enviro friendly.
눇Clean, confortable and quiet. Plenty of room and great bed to rest my head at the end of the day.
November 1, 2016
눉The exhaust fan in the bathroom was very loud and produced a cool environment when the light was turned on. A manuel switch would be sufficient.
눇Very good location, for transport, beach access and restaurants at the marina.
October 31, 2016
눉The car parking is very tight, some guests parked three cars for the one room, should not be slowed when parking is at a premium
눇The bathroom was very clean
October 29, 2016
눉Unfortunately even though there was a blind, the car park light shone into our bedroom on the last night and made sleep almost impossible
눇the location was superb. It was good value for money. and would definitely stay there again. The kitchen was well equiped
October 29, 2016
눉The room was claustrophobic, no view, no balcony. TV had no CNN, BBC etc. only basic channels. The toilet paper was the roughest Ive ever experienced.... more like sandpaper.
눇Good position, close to the beach, restaurants and Jetty Road. Comfortable bed, good wifi and free parking.
October 25, 2016
눉I had booked 2 two bedroom apartments..We were staying together with my husband, son, daughter her partner and 18 month old..If I had known we were in different buildings I wouldn't have stayed here, as it was a birthday treat...
눇Right across the street from the beach house, not far to walk for breaky, tea and the beach..could catch the tram right from the corner
October 24, 2016
눉Dark furnishings and carpet show up the smallest specks of 'dirt'.
눇A convenient hotel after an evening arrival at Adelaide airport. Check in very efficient, on site car park, fresh milk provided and extremely comfortable bed. Near to shops and restaurants.
October 20, 2016
눉Pump noise in hallway that cut on and off all night . Room smaller than pictures indicated and dark. Pull cord for curtain broken.
눇Bed was comfy and room clean.Very handy to beach and Jetty Road.
October 13, 2016
눇The welcome was great, the room well appointed and the location is ideal. Straight out of the door onto the front or onto a tram into the City. Marvellous.
October 8, 2016
눉Parking was a bit tight on busy evenings.
눇Room was clean and bathroom looked like it was recently renovated. Mattress was comfortable. Motel is very close to many restaurants and shops in Glenelg and very close to the beach.
October 3, 2016
눉The shower noise from the next room and the water saver shower head.
눇The customer service was outstanding. From showing us to the room to placing the milk in the fridge for us. Bed was very comfortable. Slept like logs.
October 1, 2016
눉Decor is outdated and carpet is garish and could do with a 'freshening up'. Room was basic but good value for the location.
눇The location was good and staff were very pleasant. Great transport options to the city right outside the door. We were there during state wide blackout so can't comment on wifi or tv but room was comfortable enough. Plenty of food options nearby. Good parking available.
September 30, 2016
눉The cleaning of the rooms at times was ordinary..bathroom not cleaned one day, items not restocked, milk etc...and we had to ask for milk most days as it had not been provided.
눇The location was perfect, close to airport and city. Variety of food outlets was excellent and good value for money.
September 29, 2016
눉The hotel - I can't believe that a property can have a 4 star rating in 21 century and NO LIFT nor assistance with luggage! How would anybody like to take their 20 kg bag + up three flights of stairs with a knee problem? I DID NOT. I arrived after 10 pm from Perth and the duty receptionist had a sore arm! It Ensenada does not want to invest in a lift then perhaps a bell boy! Also they boast a Motor Inn branding but apparently are no longer associated? Certainly confusing! Had I known I would have NOT booked the hotel. booking.com - when I booked this hotel I provided debit card details as thought I made payment with the business card as I have with the Terrace hotel in Perth as I stayed in both on this one West Coast trip. However, I found out that in Ensenada no payment was made as the terms are payment on arrival! Where I had to use my own private credit card. This means I will now wait one month for reimbursement of my payment from my company! Not happy! So either you provide a consistent approach OR make it so clear that I as your client can't be mistaken. I booked 3 hotels with booking.com in the last couple of weeks and about to book another one in Sydney, but will see.
September 19, 2016
눇Fantastic location right in the heart of Glenelg, easy walk to the beach front, tram stop and main eating/shopping street. Our room was great, very clean, quiet, comfortable bed, good bathroom. All staff members were super friendly and we were allowed to keep our car in the car park after we checked out so we could catch the tram in to town for a bit of sight seeing.
September 11, 2016
눉Nothing! its our fav place to stay in glenlg
눇we love how friendly all the staff there are. And they treat you with a warm sincere welcome. Nice touch when we get walked to our room and given a sml carton milk.
September 4, 2016
눉Nothing. Was great
눇Very clean. Close to night clubs and shopping. Outdoor area for smokers. Microwave and kitchen was good. Beds were really comfortable. Will definitely stay again!
September 4, 2016
눉Stairs were a problem for me, Parking area small but the night duty man helped me out, but there is also plenty of parking on the roadway.
눇Very nice room.
September 4, 2016
눉The water pressure was poor most mornings and hard to get temp right
눇Run professionally, staff helpful and friendly. Liked having a safe for valuables. Great WiFi
August 30, 2016
눉Didn't like the stairs no lifts not good for older generation that can't climb stairs. Also felt that the bathroom could have been cleaned more thorough.
눇I enjoyed the closeness of the motel within walking distance to other venues and shops.
August 24, 2016
눇We stay at the Ensenada every time we travel to Adelaide. The location is amazing in the bay to walk down to eat & shop, the staff are professional and helpful, rooms are perfectly clean and spacious. Also have accommodated late changes to our bookings, we are very grateful for. Thanks Lisa Lloyde
August 17, 2016
눉No lift poses a problem with heavy luggage although staff kept some for us in a storeroom on 1st floor we still had to get bags up front steps. The draught coming in from the door was incredibly cold and we had to stack cushions and clothing around but could not eliminate altogether. Heating in the bathroom would be nice, draught from room door came into bathroom when the door was closed. BRRRRRR!
눇Location and lovely helpful staff
August 16, 2016
눉Something very minor, the blinds at the doors were a bit of a nuisance
눇The room was fantastic, Very clean, Very comfortable. The staff were very nice and helpful, the location was excellent, excellent parking and safety off my car behind security gates, overall we had an excellent stay and would recommend people stay there!!!! 👍👍👍👍👍
July 17, 2016
눉the steep narrow stairs are not ideal especially when carrying luggage , or have trouble physically.Can be a bit noisy at busy times around jetty road, but it is so close with free parking that it makes it worth while.
July 12, 2016
눉no onsite restaurant, plumbing from other rooms was very noisy as was the noise from clubs/pubs nearby. no lift... only small things really but wouldn't choose to stay there again
눇location was excellent
July 11, 2016
눉Lots of steps. If you have a lot of luggage this may not be the place for you. The room was small, enclosing, dark, and dated. The dark furniture, dark carpet, and views over the carpark made it a depressing place to stay. Noise coming from air conditioning units made for a noisey nights sleep, so bring your earplugs.
눇Location is perfect and just steps from cafes, restaurants, shops, beach and city tram. Foxtel.
July 7, 2016
눇we were shown to our room and all the facilities explained to us. A nice touch as some places just direct you to your room.would certainly recommend Ensenada to anyone.
July 5, 2016
눉First contact with staff excellent but after that staff failed to even speak when in the reception area. Not a welcoming environment. On finalising payment had same gentleman as at first contact excellent.
눇Like the location to shops, restaurants and beach.
July 5, 2016
눉Nothing everything was great!
눇Both my son and I really enjoy coming here for our 'father & son' night away. The moment we check in and are shown to our room and given a small carton of fresh milk which my boy loves, its just perfect! Location is spot on with what we want to do and it's safe and clean. Most of all the staff are fantastic and extt extremely helpful with every request. We will always stay here whenever down at glenlg and would recommend to anyone that has a family. Thanks for a great stay!
July 5, 2016
눉There is no disable access to the motel rooms, even steps to get to reception.
눇Location, Location, Location. Close to the airport and transport to the city and convention centre. Friendly helpful staff.
July 3, 2016
눉There was a water saving shower head which always means a slow shower.
눇I left a ring in the room and I rang and the gentleman i spoke to is going to post it out. How awesome.
July 3, 2016
눉Water pressure in the shower was not the best and it took forever for the hot water to heat up.
눇Location was excellent. Walking distance to great shops and eateries. Excellent value for money and very friendly, helpful staff. Off street parking was great to.
July 3, 2016
눉Sound proofing between rooms is poor. The façade is very drab.
눇Excellent location and price. The staff were very good. They changed our room to a quiet one after the first night - no problems. Then we had to leave a day early due to illness and that was not an issue. We were not charged any extra. Good beds and facilities. Good car parking underneath - no charge.
June 21, 2016
눇Bed & room was comfy & clean. Secure parking. Close to everything, free wifi & newspaper, they washed my windscreen & was a very reasonable price, ray to find.
June 19, 2016
눉Beds draped with blankets and bedspreads unhygienic in today's times upgrade to white linen Duna which can be encased in White duna cover Place needs revamping and overhaul. Very disappointed when I got out of hospital and came to this accommodation made me feel more miserable than I was
June 16, 2016
눉Just very cold in bathroom is all, a heat lamp be great
눇Great location with tram and bus just out front. Jettyroad right there too with plenty of shopping and places to eat and drink! Lovely stay overall and free parking with great security. Very comfy bed all I could suggest is a heat lamp in bathroom .. Thanks for fab stay!
June 15, 2016
눉Nothing - great value for money and we will be back.
눇The close proximity to eating places. The close proximity to public transport. The bed was fantastic and room very quiet.
June 14, 2016
눉just 2 flights of stairs but managed and car park was very full and difficult to get out of car when parked.
눇Beds are always so comfortable, all amenities, plenty of supplies, paper at door, room cleaned every day
June 11, 2016
눉Loved it all.
눇Location. Very comfortable and spacious unit. All facilities were well maintained. My husband and I had a bathroom each! Heating effective and easy to use. Lots of restaurants very close. Love Glenelg.
June 9, 2016
눉Small mark on the carpet
눇The bed was very comfy and bathroom even though a little on the small side plenty of room to do the essentials. Would stay sgain
June 1, 2016
눉Bathroom was a little on the small side. Access to the room via staircases was a little difficult. A lift would certainly help
눇Location of hotel. The surrounding area is full of restaurants and the nearby jetty is a pleasure to explore. Reception staff were pleasant and helpful. Bedroom was well appointed and comfortable.
