Our motel room was fairly outdated and need of refurbishment but it was also very clean & tidy. The bathroom was extremely clean. Even though the motel is outdated you can see how hard the staff work to keep the... More

We stayed one night and that was enough. The place is really tired and in definite need of a renovation. Reception was not good. Apart from the somewhat surly guy behind the desk we were greeted with so many signs telling us what we could and could not do. Make a mess and there was a $150 extra charge, smoke... More

First time to see a 24 hour check-in machine. Lifesaver. When travelling from Brisbane to Sydney you want to get as far as you can before stopping to rest. The problem is, if you don't book a place, there are no motels that stay open for late travelers! After trying places in Brunswick heads and all along the highway we... More

We had flown into Coolangatta in the evening and by the time we got through customs etc we were unable to find a hotel around tweed heads that was open. I googled 24 hour hotels in Ballina and came up with Hi Craft Motel. I phoned and asked about booking a room and the manager said just phone when we... More

Found this hotel had 4 rooms available at $70 on Booking.com. Seeing as I was just round the corner I walked in, past the sign 'Rooms from $70', to be told I could have one for $85. All the Booking.com and $70 ones were 'sold'. Riiiiiiight. Walked out...

We have stayed at this motel 2 times this year and have found the rooms clean and comfortable, with the staff pleasant and helpful on every occasion. Breakfast is plentiful with good variety. Convenient .Friendly, helpful staff who exhibited a sense of humour. The room was quiet, clean and well presented. We really enjoyed our trip. Fully recommend.

Excellent service by the new management. Iam sure by the time we are ready for our next stay, the renovated and new rooms along with their now very high standard of cleanliness in rooms will capture our hearts for good. I loved the easy driving in and out of their convenient parking and location. The new management was so efficient... More
