I pulled up after a horrendously long drive and I was deeply concerned. From the outside, it doesn't look like much - 70s drug motel, I thought. But looks can be deceiving. I'd like to meet the woman (I bet it was a woman) who designed the interior of these rooms. So incredibly classy, homely, welcoming and practical! They have... More

This was the cheapest accommodation we had on a recent trip to Yamba, Byron Bay and Ballina. So I didn't have my hopes up. However, I was very pleasantly surprised. It looks like a standard single-storey, park at the door, motor in - albeit a little more well-presented than some, with lovely tropical gardens - but the room was probably... More

Very clean, beds weren't as comfortable as we had hope that is personal preference had a kitchenette which was handy and very clean, nice shutters on windows. Not far from the water was nice for a walk.

This is the best furnished motel we have ever visited. Stopped here in route south for a night and had a great sleep on excellent beds. The room was beautifully equipped and had a nice modern bathroom. The plantation shutters on the windows added a sophisticated touch. The kids were taken with their two very friendly cats who greeted the... More

This motel is among THE best. It is ideally located for beach walks. It is all on one level, spotlessly clean and offers great value for money. Inclusions are all brand new. Beds are beaut. Parking in front of units. Leanne is a perfect host with a great sense of humour. Wi Fi is available at no cost.

We have visited this motel a number of times and love staying there. It is obvious why this motel is rated No.1 in Ballina. It ticks all of the boxes for a motel. Large rooms which are spotless. Comfortable bed, well equipped kitchenette, large TV, comfortable lounge etc. etc. Motel is a credit to the owner. Would highly recommend.

Stayed at the this Motor Inn over the weekend 8 - 11 August 2014. Everything went very well. The check in was simple and quick. The room was comfortable, clean and everything you would need. It was well located in Ballina and not far from the main attractions. Would highly recommend this accommodation.

I like the use of large plantation shutters on the room. The kitchenette is larger than your average motel room and is decked out with above average appliances. Bathrobes are a nice touch as well as is the ironing board etc. Beds are comfortable and location is quiet being right up the end of the street. Parking is right outside... More

An overnight stay with a family of 3 kids. We were given a very clean, comfortable room with a queen, 2 singles and a trundle. Lovely walk along the river after check-in, just 50 M away. Very friendly service and well placed in East Ballina, close to beaches,
