Nice clean accommodation with good food

Pros: Location, parking and cleanliness.
Cons: Parking outside rooms was a little snug, making exit a tight multiple-point-turn necessary on occasion (I drive a Camry sedan when in Adelaide).
Location: Close to Jetty Road shops, although I whiled away plenty of time in shops and cafes adjacent the Broadway, and close to Haigh's and Market on Maxwell!
I visit Adelaide regularly to see my Mum (at Hove), and catch up with friends, so around the Glenelg area is ideal to minimise too much travel. It's an ideal location, with onsite parking. A hairdryer was loaned to me for the duration of my stay. The Bay Motel Hotel room was clean and perfectly adequate for my stay. Lunch and evening meals in the Hotel dining room were delicious. Breakfast cafes and shops are abundant in the area, as are other fantastic shopping areas nearby (Jetty Road Glenelg and Brighton, Westfield Marion, and the sensational Market on Maxwell [Terrace] for the best vanilla slices on the planet [and the best hosts Paul and Eleni]).
