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.

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.

My room was clean and comfortable and the staff were friendly and helpful. The location is great because it is so close to town. Great value for money. I will stay there again next time I am in Ballina.

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.

Friendly, helpful staff combined with a clean, comfortable room made this an enjoyable overnight stay. Being close to a couple of restaurants as well as the RSL Club made it easy to get a reasonable meal. As an older style motel, it is provides excellent value for money - happy to recommend it.

Have nothing bad to say, no complaints and for my single night the room was exactly what was required. The room was clean, quite large, price was good. If I am in the town in the future I have no hestiation going back, or recommending it to anyone.

We'll worth the money. Clean, we'll presented rooms, perhaps a little dated in decor but we have certainly stayed in many that we're not of this standard - for more money. Good value for money. Probably the only downside was a bit of "people noise" from others on the verandas of adjoining rooms. Not a big issue though.
