The rooms have everything you need for a quick stopover. The location near the RSL is very handy and you can walk to everywhere in town. Free wi-fi worked well for both of us and there was really nothing we could fault. Clean crisp sheets (I have a thing about that), a nice hot shower and comfy bed was just... More

I happen to have booked the queen room that was closest to highway. It was noisy. The room was good for value. Bed was comfortable and room overall was clean.the advertised free wi-if did not work after I was given 2 vouchers for 500mb each!

The Economy queen rooms are closer to the road, otherwise they are exactly the same size as the Standard queen rooms so if you are concerned about traffic noise a Standard queen would be more suitable. WiFi is limited to 500mb per coupon at the moment, we are investigating a different system, but are always happy to provide as many... More

We stayed here for just one night. The motel was in a handy location to town and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We were especially impressed how clean the room was. Good value for money. Thanks.

My mum & I stayed here on our way to & on the way back from Queensland. Large rooms, comfortable beds & close to the town centre. While on the main road the rooms are set back & you aren't disturbed by any traffic. The only issue was that the lights over the bed didn't work but that was only... More

We went to Ballina to see a band called "Bourbon Street" play the opening night at the refurbished Ballina Hotel. The Coast Inn was only a short walk to the venue and it suited our purposes. Friendly staff and a very clean room. (Very impressed with the crisp clean sheets) Would stay there again if the need arises.

We had to stay in Ballina for a night at short notice. We found the Coast Inn Motel online and going by previous reviews, the price and the photos we booked. Check in was easy and friendly, the room was clean and cosy and the location was quiet. We would definitely stay there again.

I'm glad to hear that your meal at the restaurant next door was good, being Ballina locals my husband and I aim to provide our guests with local advice to make their stay in Ballina a pleasant experience.
