Stayed 2 nights while passing through town. We were both very impressed by the cleanliness and helpful friendly staff. Would definitely recommend and stay again ourselves. Thank you for an enjoyable stay.

A very nice comfy and cosy motel which is close to everything, Great if you are staying for a carnival, the Byron Bay music festival or just plain relaxing. Walking distance to the shopping strip. The couple who run the place are really nice and friendly and do an extremely good job.

In Ballina for a sports carnival and pretty disappointed with the motel - very limited facilities and for a small motel lacked any character. Rooms clean and tidy but ageing - very basic bathroom. Beds just about OK. Wasn't a cheap motel by any means and I am sure could do better in Ballina......loathed to be too critical but just... More

This inn is family operated, and that's what they make you feel like: part of the family. The hosts go out of the way to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Highly recommended place to be!!!! Kindest hosts, cleaner than even most HOTELS, and surprisingly spacious rooms. Thank you very much for the awesome stay!! -the 2 Canadian girls... More

As motels go this was what you'd happily expect. Clean and functional room, easy to find, easy to check in and out. Staff were helpful when we needed to arrive late and gave us instructions regarding check in over phone. Nice tea in room and fresh milk was a bonus.

I stayed for 4 nights over the Xmas period and found the location and rooms more than comfortable and clean. The location is good with walking distance to the River Street shops. The staff were very accommodating - on the last night I had an extra guest and they changed rooms for me. For the first 3 nights I was... More

My husband stayed at the Coast Inn over night whilst travelling to Sydney. The outside of the motel is very old looking and is on the main road but the rooms are large, clean and quiet the beds comfortable and the staff are lovely. very good value for money.

I stayed one night in Ballina after attending a nearby workshop. Upon arrival, the staff was very helpful with their information about the local area. My room was spotless and was quite a generous size with comfortable chairs to sit. The shower was really large, light and airy. I had seen online that the room contained a microwave oven, so...
