affordable stays in glenelg
discover A range of accommodation options.
Glenelg is not only Adelaide’s most quoted palindrome – that’s when a word reads the same backwards as forwards – it’s arguably the jewel in the crown of the South Australian capital’s many stunning beachside areas.
Not surprisingly, it’s popular all year round given its inviting and moderate Mediterranean climate; miles of golden beaches lapped by pristine and gentle gulf waters; a rich Indigenous and European history; bustling retail, pub, dining and entertainment strips like the celebrated Jetty Road precinct and the chic Marina Pier area; family attractions such as The Beachouse entertainment centre and the GU Filmhouse movie complex; and an extensive public transport network of buses and trams ready to take you quickly and effortlessly to just about anywhere.
You’d be forgiven for thinking all this comes at a pretty price, beyond the reach for most of us. The good news is you’d be wrong as the suburb, just 10 minutes from Adelaide Airport and a little further from Adelaide Oval and the city centre, is home to a wide variety of clean, cosy and comfortable accommodation options.
Whatever brings you to our stately city – you might be a family with young children on a lengthy holiday, a quick weekend break or a visit to friends or rellies, perhaps you’re in town for a specialist medical appointment or then again, it could be business or to support your interstate footy team – there’s something for everyone in this exciting and eclectic suburb.
You’ll find a generous spread of hotels, motels and self-catering apartments: some nestled in quiet, tree-lined suburban streets, some closer to the nightlife action and others enjoying panoramic views across Gulf St Vincent…all, such as those featured here, offering single or multiple night stays at competitive, affordable and value-for money prices.
