Stayed for 4 nights in a balcony room (#100). Had a little trouble with getting my room key via the automated check-in box due to my booking being through Qantas. The lady on the helpline was fantastic. The room on level 10 had amazing views to the sea and up the patawalonga. The room was "tired" but everything worked well. The Wifi worked very well. The room came with free parking. The location is great. Close to the beach, Jetty Road and the tram to the city. Will stay again, especially if I can get room 100.

Stayed at the Atlantic Tower Motor Inn with my mother for 2 nights just after Christmas. We booked through Booking.com and when the price dropped $50 the day before we called the hotel direct and they were able to give us the cheaper rate that Booking.com was offering. We stayed in one of the Level 1 rooms, as we required a room with 2 beds. The Level 1 rooms don't have balconies, which allows them to be slightly bigger to fit a queen and a single. Hotel isn't 5-star, so don't expect as such. If you come in knowing this is a 3-star hotel you will have a comfortable stay. We were particularly looking for a place that was - walking distance to Glenelg beach/restaurants - had free/included car parking - could provide us with 2 beds (single/single or Queen/single) This motel was able to do all of these things. Positives - great location. 5 minute walk to the marina, beach; 10 minute walk to Jetty Road. - so many restaurants within easy walking distance - Coles within walking distance (but it closes early, weird Adelaide shopping hours) - great water pressure in the shower; loved the walk-in shower (rather than shower over bath that many hotels still have). - friendly staff, both on the phone and on-site. Really helpful, kind and approachable. - our room wasn't facing Anzac Hwy, so was relatively quiet in terms of road noise. - decent sized fridge that we were able to store our own snacks and drinks in. Bigger than most hotel fridges. - free parking - decent quality towels (better than average for a motel of this quality). Things to consider - This hotel doesn't provide individual toiletries. Provided were soap and shower gel in squeezable bottles (I didn't like this, because it means that the bottle is touched by someone with 'dirty' hands every time they go to the toilet). BYO toiletries. - Parking was limited and was on a "first come, first served" basis. At the time a lot of the parking spaces were also blocked off by scaffolding. Parking is also not secure (in a carpark that is basically on the street). Apparently they do have paid parking that you can upgrade to, but we weren't advised of this or offered this by the hotel. Negatives of our particular room - Window didn't shut properly. We had to roll up a towel and stuff it in the crack to make sure no mosquitos came in (I am highly allergic). - Black mould in the shower - down low, not at eye level (I only noticed this because I sat down on the shower floor to shave my legs). - Beds weren't great - could feel the springs in the mattress and both of us woke up with sore backs. - Bed sheet had a large (coffee?) stain on it that should have been picked up by housekeeping when making the bed and not used. Would we stay here again - probably, at the right price. We paid $180 a night for 2 nights which was more than this property is worth, but in prime holiday season at Glenelg you don't expect much less. There is construction going on on the facade of the building, but this didn't bother us as we were out during the day.

Firstly - location, location...can't beat it But the place grew on us and I appreciated the work the management has done to fit everything into the rooms, which were well kitted out and thoughtful The car park is a problem and maybe some fly screens would be welcomed. Some traffic noise but not liek a major highway If you get a good package deal, the Atlantic is a good bet that being said, an additional $100 was deducted from my card as noted': hope it comes out in the wash

In a nutshell, do not stay here!! My partner and I just wanted some time alone for a single night so we thought the romantic view would set the scene. The view was the one and only nice thing about this hotel. Construction going on everywhere, no staff on site, walls paper-thin, loose taps, leaky bathroom and bed looked like it was half made. To add insult to injury, they took $100 deposit from my credit card on top of the room cost and its been 3 weeks and i still havent got it back. Will never stay there again!

Hello Tony, Clearly your night with us earlier this month wasn’t up to your standards. For that, we apologise. There must have been something substantial that had gone awry during your stay to make you so upset that you felt a need to not tell anyone at the time, then wait 3 weeks, then write a review here, embellishing and dramatising to the degree you have. Whatever happened that upset you to this level, and made you feel like you didn’t want to bring it up during your stay, we are sorry. We do thank you for the nice comment on the view from our rooms, but the fictitious comment that there was construction going on everywhere is highly unwarranted. During your stay, no construction took place. None. Nada. Zip. There was however a fence around the outside and some scaffolding at our entrance that doesn’t look very pretty. Look, we don’t think it’s pretty either, and we appreciate that walking past it for a few seconds as you enter and exit the foyer might turn some people’s smile into a frown. Regarding your assertion that there was no staff onsite. While we have not had people onsite 24/7 for many years now, we very much still have staff onsite daily. Even during this COVID-19 pandemic. We’ve worked very hard to dramatically reduce risk to staff and our customers, including taking measures such as communicating via the phone rather than face to face where possible. The signage in your room, the pre-arrival emails you received and the signage in the foyer make mention of the fact we are still at your beck and call 24 hours a day; but we’re doing our part by abiding by social distancing best practices. As for paper thin walls. Sorry, but no. Solid brick, or triple-layer acoustic sound deadening – that is what we have between rooms. Unless there was a full-on party going on next door, we struggle to understand how you might come to describe the walls as you have. We didn’t get alerted to any disturbance that night (or invited to any party), so we are at a loss as to why you mention this. Loose taps and a leaky bathroom – now I’m getting confused. We don’t see how the mixers in that room are loose or leaking. We’ve checked, and then checked again. Perhaps the next guest was a good samaritan who was an off-duty plumber? I guess we’ll never know. The bed being half made – again, we’re in the middle of a pandemic. Sorry, but we felt the best way to ensure that we are reducing risk to our customers is to rapidly adapt and be overly cautious. And that meant removing some items that are there for aesthetics, like the bed cushion and runner. It is risk mitigation 101, and we’re sticking to it until the situation improves. Finally… there was indeed a preauthorisation of $100 to cover any incidentals you might have had during your stay. This requirement you were notified about 1) before you made the booking, 2) in your confirmation email, and 3) in the terms and conditions you accepted before checking in. This was not money taken out of your account, but rather, it was a reduction in your credit limit by $100. Accordingly, it would not be ‘transacted back to you’ per se, because it was never ‘taken out’ of your account. So, you won’t see that amount flow back into your account. Instead, the initial hold will disappear. In saying this, if this has not disappeared and you can still see the hold, by all means, please phone, email, post a letter or even smoke signal us. This type of thing can happen, and of course, we are more than happy to help get it sorted. Coming back to my first point, we’re sorry that you didn’t have a fantastic stay. It’s what you wanted – and whether you believe it or not, that is actually the goal for us too. So in future, if you’re staying at a hotel, dining at a restaurant, or grabbing a quick takeaway coffee from a café… if you have a problem or a concern – please let someone know so they can fix it for you. It’s our job. Literally. Best Regards, James Brown General Manager
