Stayed here over the Christmas period for 3 nights. Excellent location within walking distance to the town and RSL club, facilities superb with a clean good sized pool. Room very clean, we stayed in one of the deluxe rooms which had the added bonus of a garden that my two young children could safely play in.Made very welcome by the... More

This motel is very basic. Room had a unpleasant smell to it. Bed was comfy. Room was relatively clean. Owner came round at 7.30am (check out is 10am) and just tried opening the door without knocking. He then went round and tried the other doors. Booked this hotel at the last minute but would not recommend.

We needed to stay over one night (Christmas Night) so we chose the Centrepoint in Ballina. Not much to say only that this Motel is Very Very basic - no frills. Beds were comfy enough, the Air Conditioning worked OK (noisy) and there was plenty of Hot Water.

I guess the first hint that thing weren't going to be too good was as we drove down the street and noticing at least half-a-dozen cars in every other motel. But not this one. We were the only guests. As we drove in we were greeted by an elderly man in a pair of shorts, a half buttoned up shirt... More

This is the worst place we've ever stayed at. The owner is rude and not at all friendly or helpful. stay clear!!!! The room was less than average. Not impressed. the only good thing about this place is the location, but that isn't enough to recommend it to anyone. It was a cheap motel that is just that... cheap

We are a young couple and have been travelling for about 2 weeks now. We are absolutely amazed at the kindness of the owner,s Marlon and Anne :). We had special needs that go far beyond the general traveller and far beyond the motels advertised facilities and services. Our circumstance was happily and politely obliged to even though we are...

We spent 2 nights at this Motel and were glad to leave. The attitude of the owner was the worsted I have come across. He came into the room when we left the room and turned of the AC. And kept knocking no the door to tell us to shut the bathroom window even though there was no exhaust fan... More

All in all better than surrounding accommodation which I managed to glanced at. The main point I have to make: it was quite regardless it being Christmas Day. Hotel manager definitely cares about their reputation, he made sure our room was next to a family like us. It was comfy quiet and clean, that's all we wanted from a one... More

We booked previously for 3 days but arrived 3 days earlier. So we agreed to a 6 day deal which included breakfast. The first two mornings breakfast was reasonable( continental) as requested. On the third day we asked a staff member for some soap. Which was pleasantly responded to. That evening Marlon the owner abused me for having the audacity... More

Dog tired into Ballina...saw the $75/night sign...more fool me? Anyway, a double costs more, the $75 is for seniors, andway too tired to argue. And couldn't really breathe in the VERY smoky smelling reception. But the room was large, clean, tidy, quiet, and comfortable. It's a short walk up the main street into the very quiet town centre, for a... More
