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,

I'm surprised a motel with 40 units can stay open with only 3 units occupied? Very clean friendly service but a noisy airconditioner made it a long night. In the old days with the highway running right past the door, this would have been a very busy, albeit noisy abode. Food at the tavern up the road was excellent and... More

A lot of thought has gone into all the little bits of attention to detail to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The manager (owner) is just lovely too. She puts in tremendous effort to make sure Ballina Palms is the best it can be each and every day and it shows. Rooms are spacious, clean and pleasantly stylish.... More
