We booked a family room for 5 people. The room and bathroom was tidy and clean. Personnel was friendly. We got complimentary tea and coffee. Overall it was a good decision to book with Coast Inn Motel.

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.

The guy rang back to check on us shortly after. There weren't many facilities available, but what was there (TV, wifi,... More

Very friendly staff, the rooms are nice and clean, good for Familys with a little playground, good for little Kids. Coffee and tea in the room. A short distance to the river and to shops and restaurants, but a long way to the beach.

Clean, quiet, upstairs accommodation no problem. Traffic didn't start until the morning so quiet overnight. Walking distance to local restaurants and club. Great overnight accommodation and rooms spacious.

This motel is slightly off the touristy area, though surrounded by other motel/hotels. A 15 minute walk to anything interesting. Great value for money. Couldn't get the free wi-fi to work, though. The owners/reception were very friendly and helpful.

Very pleasant room, and the beds were clean and comfortable, the whole set out of the room was good. I found the staff very pleasant and serviced the room every day of our stay, coming back each evening to a tidy neat room .. Would come back again.

We had a large room on the second floor with a double and twin beds with very efficient air-conditioning. Undercover parking adjacent to lower units. Walking distance to the River and a short drive to the beach. Very friendly owners who are making great improvements to the recently acquired property.

Excellent room. Great set out and layout of room and building. Close to restaurants and other facilities. Picked at last minute due to location and price but will definitely be back. Had a great stay. Beds comfortable and loved the lounge room and dining area in the family rooms.
