I was given a choice of rooms and chose upstairs for my 4 night stay. It was a renovated queen room. Some older features and furniture, but newly renovated bathroom. The overall standard of cleanliness was very high. The room was well stocked, a good size and the air-conditioning was quiet and effective. I found the bed a little firm,... More

Perfect for overnight accomodation. Best value for money. Rooms are really clean and functional.Bed is very comfortable and aircon was new and working well. All you need for a night or two. Close to the river and pubs in town. Will certainly be back.

First time I have been motivated to review. My wife chose on price and so I wasn't expecting much. It was such a pleasant surprise!! Simple things just done so well, especially cleanliness. Service was also above and beyond with our questions and requests met with friendly enthusiasm.

Selected this motel on price and location near restaurants etc for a quick one night trip. Had spent much of my working life on the road with many many nights in rural motels and, based on the accommodation only, this motel is one of the best. A very reasonable price and nothing flashy, just a good room size and layout... More

We stay there just for one night and it was a really good surprise. The room is very big for a family room and everythingis very tidy and neat. The staff is very keen and we were close to many shops! Only at 35 min by car from Byron.

The Coast Inn Motel is a great option for those traveling on a budget and wanting to visit Byron Bay, our large family rooms are great if you are traveling as a group of adults. Ballina also has so much to offer, particularly the beautiful walking path along the river and north wall, so while you are here check out... More

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.

It is always lovely to have a friendly face stay for a couple of nights - we enjoy having a chat! We also work extra hard to make cleanliness a top priority, so it is nice that you notice the effort we put in. Hope to see you again soon! More

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

I would have to agree that during the peak season over Christmas/New Year Ballina motels are much more pricey than usual, and unfortunately for some this represents a lack of value. I can assure you that on the average night our prices are very competitive and provide good value for money, we are clean and although some of our rooms... More
