ensenada motor inn
prime location in the heart of glenelg.
Location is without question a feature of The Ensenada Motor Inn and Suites, situated as it is on Glenelg’s Colley Terrace, overlooking Colley Reserve and the sea, a gentle 100-metre stroll to the sandy beaches and pretty much equidistant from the buzz of the equally close Moseley Square and Jetty Road and the sophistication of Marina Pier, the neighbourhood’s two premier restaurant, bar and café precincts.
But as proprietor Rob McBride is quick to share, the best location counts for little if it’s not backed up by exemplary service and prices that patrons associate with value for money.
That’s precisely the trinity Rob and his family – it has been a family business since 1984 – have been true to in positioning The Ensenada Motor Inn and Suites as the perfect destination for those looking for contemporary, fresh, crisp and clean accommodation that sits comfortably between the top establishments and those of a more budget nature.
And being a lazy five-minute walk to over 50 cafes and restaurants, the hotel has understandably stuck to its knitting, with its every focus on the accommodation its offers, although guests can enjoy a breakfast service delivered to their rooms.
Speaking of rooms, all 39 recently enjoyed a total refurbishment, emerging with new furnishings and a décor rich in soft vibrant coastal tones befitting its seaside location. Its spread of lodgings includes executive and deluxe motel rooms ideal for the corporate market, as well as one- and two-bedroom self-contained suites and two-bedroom holiday apartments for the tourist and family guests.
All rooms feature a flat screen television and free wi-fi, while the self-contained accommodation has a modern kitchenette stocked with crockery, cutlery, a microwave, hotplates and an array of cooking utensils.
The apartments, in turn, all have two bedrooms and two bathrooms with full kitchens, laundry facilities, separate family rooms and entertaining areas, as well as balconies boasting views over the marina, the beach or the scenic Adelaide Hills.
There’s also free secure on-site parking, but for those without a car or who prefer not to drive, the super-efficient tram service to the Adelaide CBD is just minutes away.
