Very good”

Well located in Ballina and walking distance to the main part of town. Each room has its own marked parking spot. The facilities were adequate and generally clean but some of the fixtures were a bit dated and could do with a spruce up. Overall good value for money for its location.

Good without being great”

A good, clean motel, well situated for access to town and RSL Club (good meals). Booked online with Agoda - for a deluxe room - but got there and they had trouble finding paperwork, and gave me a standard unit. When I showed the Agoda paperwork they were able to give me a deluxe room (only difference really is a queen bed not a double, but the queen wasn't much longer than the double). Room was clean and functional. Some highway noise, esp rooms near the main road.

Excellent facility”

I stayed Wednesday the 10th of July 2019 and had a standard room. It was perfect for a stop over. I was travelling up from the central coast and got there at 1.30AM. The staff made it very easy to checkin and out and even turned on lights etc for me before my arrival. Very clean and comfortable. My only complaint would be the bedding. The sheet and that “doona” which is so thin and doesn’t keep you warm at all needs updating. A warmer one would be good as even the extra blankets didn’t help. Had to turn air con on for most of the night as it was freezing.

Good cheap accommodation close to most things”

location, price, service.

We stayed for three nights. The booking process was easy, although we were given a double bed when we actually wanted two singles. No problem for the staff who fixed this right away and gave us the correct bedding. We were able to cook using the microwave, the staff were very helpful, the location was good and handy to the club, restaurants and shopping centres.

Location is close to everything in Ballina

My brother & I needed a cheap place to stay for two nights that was close to Bailina CBD. I would only recommend this motel to someone who was looking for a bed to sleep in & nothing more. This place was very cheap & the facility was as we expected.
