My family and I stayed recently for an overnight visit. The room and bathroom were quite small (ours had a queen bed and a single bed in it) but are sufficient for a quick stop. The room was immaculately clean and the beds were very comfortable.

We stayed in a double room with its own facilities. The location is quiet and well off the main streets. It is billed as walk to restraunts. Well that is true but there are not a lot of restraunts at that end of town. Most are about half way up the main street. The room was clean, comfortable and reasonablly... More

Stayed for one night in the super saver room. Very clean, communal kitchen well equipped, and nice price for those on a budget. Only one comment; there is a small table and chairs right outside the rooms for smokers, so it tends to be a social gathering point and the talking can be disturbing if you're after an early night....

We were looking for a great value for our dollars and found it here at the Traveller's Lodge in Ballina, NSW. We were in a fully enclosed room. There were backpacker accomodation as well but we like having our own bathroom. Sometimes when you stay at a place, the bed is not very comfy but the queen we were on... More

Stayed overnight on our way to Sydney. Great location, rooms were clean and well appointed. Fresh local espresso coffee with a plunger in the room for $5 was well worth it. We had a queen and single bed in the room and plenty of space for luggage etc. Walking distance to local shops and restaurants. No traffic noise but with... More

We extended our stay at the Ballina Travellers Lodge Motel because it is very clean, quiet, comfortable and walking distance to cafes and restaurants.Nice swimming pool for the warmer months. The staff are very friendly. Wish we could have stayed longer.
