We stayed here for one night when travelling north and found the staff to be very pleasant and helpful. The room was very clean with a separate sink. The bed was comfortable. There was adequate off street parking with no road noise issues. It was just a short walk to the town centre and the R.S.L. club. We had a...

Has everything you would expect for a 3 star motel for an overnight stopover. Good comfortable bed, clean rooms, good bathroom, friendly host, everything worked. All these things you expect, but don't often get. 👍👍

We stayed here last minute as I was too tired to drive through to Brisbane. I was on my own with my 2 year old son and 13 year old daughter. Upon arrival, the staff were extremely friendly and we paid $90 for the night. I wanted breakfast the next morning in the room, but was told the chef was...

The only two things going for the Motel are that it had a comfortable bed and it had plenty of on and off street parking. When checking in I wondered if the mans name was Bates!! he directed me to an aging and somewhat dilapidated room 12A. It looked OK when entering, but really it was soooo tired. There were...

We stayed here for one night in a one bedroom room. There were two single beds in the bedroom and a queen in the front room. The front room was a little cramped as it also had a table with chairs, and arm chair, a small fridge and and buffet with crockery etc in it. The beds were comfortable with...

Clean. Friendly staff. Good amenities. In room fridge and microwave. Quiet. Value for money. Older decor. Close to Ballina RSL Chinese food and pizza. No late check out available. Definitely worth a look. Laid back atmosphere where nothing seems to be too much trouble. Extra towels, pillows etc available from staff and not in room. Must ask for them.

My husband & I stopped here as a quick overnight refuge. We knew we wouldn't be there till midnight or after, reception took our payment over the phone & left the keys in the room ready to go for us. It was no fuss and a pleasant sleep.

If you are a fussy traveller who must have all the frills do not stay here! This was the perfect motel for our needs, one night stop over, close to shops, rsl club & Main Street & esplanade, with pubs, restaurants etc all within walking distance. Room has microwave, kettle toaster & kitchen sink so enough to prep a basic...
