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.

The room was very clean, quite roomy and comfortable. It was good value for the money that we paid. Staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel was conveniently located and easy to find. The only problem was the extremely slow free wifi. I would stay again if I was visiting the area.

We stay in Ballina every couple of months on the way to Brisbane. This motel is clean, with good size rooms and friendly staff. It is well located, near Chinese restaurants, the club and other facilities.

Thank you for your feedback - in response to your suggestion to select a room further from the main street we have reviewed our room types and developed two separate categories; "Economy Queen" and "Standard Queen", our Economy Queen rooms are the rooms closer to the main street for those people concerned about any early morning traffic noise. The Standard... More

Stayed one night on a business trip, motel was clean and comfortable with quite large rooms, helpful and pleasant staff. The location was convenient being on River Street, no road noise evident and most importantly a good shower. Will definitely use again.
