We had a one night stop at the Coast Inn Motel and is was excellent - room was large and well equiped with microwave, toaster etc. We found the room very comfy and clean with lots of seating.

Rooms are awesome, recently renovated, calm and pleasant surroundings. Staff owner operators were excellent and couldn't do enough for us. And good value for money. Definitely the best accommodation of this type I have ever... More

Good value. Worthy the trip in off the highway. Air conditioner could have been better but not a problem. Cheery welcome by hosts. Very obliging. Would stay again. Good food within easy walk at club. Thanks

Welcomed warmly at check in, the room was clean and comfortable close to the water and walking distance to the RSL which serves great meals. Free wifi with great connection ! Bed was a bit hard but will stay again when we have business in the area.

Not the Ritz but comfortable and clean! Pros: Easy to locate (even at night), friendly reception (who were able to recommend a great Italian restaurant), comfortable and well appointed rooms, sensible sized shower (with fluffy towels) and cosy bed. Cons: Pillows were a little on the thin side - but spares were available to double up! Great value accommodation at... More

We booked a room for 5 people and one bed was a add on. Nevertheless, the room was very spacious, with a kettle in the room and some free tea and coffee. The toilet was also clean with some shampoo and soap so that was a plus point. It's quite near to some eateries and a woolie's. The wifi was... More

for three years I have been travelling around the world by pushbike, curently around Australia (20th country). due to my financial situation I can spend the nights in all kind of accommodations, but my need for luxury is quite low. it must be reasonable. This motel was a good choice. friendly staff, big room, all clean and quiet.

A group of friends stayed there during an over night motor bike ride. The staff were very accommodating for our large group. The room rate for our group was excellent, and the manager provided a nice cooked breakfast. I would recommend this motel if you are looking for a good motel in Ballina.
