Totally fine for $80-$100/night. Absolutely criminal that they charge $300/night for the most rundown looking room I've ever stayed in in a Western country. Our hotel double booked us so they found us accomodation here for a night. Seriously, for this type of money it is laughable.

Considering this motel was overpriced due to the xmas holidays it would only be far to rate it on the standard price range which is still overpriced. Friendly greeting with a price haggle (drop) which suited me. Comfortable and reasonably clean with all the bits and pieces. Did find scuffed cupboard doors and rusty outside bar fridge. A few loose... More

It's convenient, most of all it is clean with good facilities. Hosts are pleasant, and conversational It's not the Taj.. (Pun) but we enjoyed our night there, most of all, the 5 to 10 minute walk to some great pub meals. We'd stay again, if we were just travelling through. A little bit of noise from the trucks that forget... More

Last room avail in Coffs. We would NEVER stay here again. The house next door to the motel contains Drunken, Feral Hillbillies that swore and fought until early hours of the morning. Smoking permitted outside the rooms and woofted in all evening. Road noise was nothing in comparison to the disgusting behaviour of the neighbours. If you don't mind loud... More

Unfornatually this hotel is a hole, it's dirty they don't really care about the clientele that they let stay here, for people who live on the premises they don't address the noise levels that their guests make. When I turned the fan on dust went flying around the room, the floor where the fridge is was dirty and sticky, the... More

Our expectations were not high but were quickly surpassed. Check-in was easy with the very friendly manager. Although dated, the room was very comfortable and very clean. There was great water pressure in the shower and the beds were the best we have slept in for some time. Undercover parking and free wifi were a bonus. Only a couple of... More

We arrived late in Coffs Harbour wanting to find a nice motel. The first motel I found was the Banana town motel. As soon as I spoke to the owner's and checked the room I knew we would have a great stay. We were greeted by the friendly staff who's hospitality were excellent. The room was very clean and the...

Stayed here Feb 2014. Last minute thing. Room was interesting to say the least, something out of a bad movie. A mish mash of colours and patterns. Not very clean. Could hear the trucks out on the main road as well as people at 7am outside the windows talking loudly. Was going to stay 2nd night as we were exhausted... More

I loved my stay at the Bananatown Motel. The new staff said that they moved in only a couple of days ago and were very friendly. Before when i came to this motel in 2009 the rooms were horrible and the staff were not friendly and were not at the reception on time. The new management team have changed the... More
