Spend a night, not a fortune – and a quieter one at that!
That’s the promise of Glenelg’s most affordable budget motel, the Norfolk Motor Inn, where proprietor Steve Bland highlights the friendliness of staff, the cleanliness of the rooms, the low cost and the establishment’s location on Glenelg's latest hot spot, The Broadway, fast establishing itself as a mecca for locals with its range of cafes, shops, pubs, free parking and community vibe.
The retro motel of 20 en-suite rooms is also within a leisurely stroll of Glenelg’s golden beaches, vibrant Jetty Road and public transport.
For those less inclined to walk or hop on public transport, there’s also the handy option of hiring a bicycle, helmet and lock-up chain from reception – and at the ridiculously low rate of $10 per day for guests and $25 for the public – before heading off to explore the Glenelg area (it’s also super cycling friendly, being mostly flat and blessed with numerous bicycle tracks) and its rich history.
Closer to home, the Norfolk Motor Inn has an adjoining antique shop that’s a veritable treasure trove filled with hard-to-find retro, mid-century and vintage items.
Norfolk Motor Inn’s rooms have walk-in showers, a microwave, toaster, fridge and kettle for self-catering, while amenities extend to free wi-fi, a free communal barbecue area and free off-street parking. In addition, each of its mix of single, double, twin, triple and family rooms come with reverse cycle air-conditioning, a digital flat-screen television, a radio, and basic cutlery and crockery.
A continental breakfast is also available.
So, when next in Adelaide, why not take a trip back to the 1960s and experience the old motor inn feel, where you can park your car close to your room?
