Since there is no on-airport accommodation at Adelaide airport, this hotel is the next best thing for a stopover between flights, being just a few kms away. Aviator's Lodge is pretty much your standard hotel/motel, breakfast served on a tray, and rooms basic but clean and functional. The big plus with this property is the $5 airport transfer, which takes...

Place was clean and provided the basics such as T.V, Kettle, small sachets of tea and coffee and little containers of milk. There were not shops nearby to purchase snacks and meals at the restaurant had finished when we arrived at 8.30pm. We...

Unfortunately we left booking accommodation to the last minute, and we booked in at the Aviator's lodge. Never have we felt so unwelcome when checking in to any accommodation. Totally over priced $175 AUD for a shoe box, you have to be kidding! Had to pay for internet access, and don't dare ask for a wake up call, that will...

My daughter and I stayed here while in Adelaide to catch a flight. The lady at the front desk was really lovely and helpful, organized our shuttle to the airport and back, and I also stored our car while we were away. I can't fault the friendly service. I also had dinner at the restaurant twice, was beautiful :-)

There is a severe lack of accommodation near Adelaide airport and this motel is one of the closer ones - however it is still a $15 taxi or pre-arranged shuttle ride. It is a very old and tired motel, with extremely small rooms. The bed is almost touching the desk, so that it is difficult to use the chair at...

Clean, very helpful staff in a great location for those early morning flights, not a comfort inn any more but still just what we wanted for a one night stay and the food was good. Next to the main road but we had no problem with noise.
