A clean neat place that is great for a stop over, had a microwave in the room which was helpful, next door to the servo for any goods you need, the free wifi was great, plus good food is within walking distance

We have stayed twice for a single night stopover. Kylie and Michael are very friendly and helpful. Free Wi-Fi in the rooms was a bonus. Great location near the BP fuel station with convenience store, and handy to Westower tavern for meals. Under cover parking as well. Not five star, but a comfortable family motel that we would recommend to... More

On our return trip from the Sunshine Coast to Sydney we stayed at the Chaparral motel in Ballina. It was great value for money and our hosts Kylie and Michael made us feel very welcome. Unfortunately I forgot to look in the wardrobe before I left and found I had left several pieces of clothing behind. By the time Michael... More

I stayed here just one night on a road trip, it was heaven sent. My navigation unit mislead me on location, however a quick phone xall sorted out the location ( handy hint, it is next to a BP service station). The phone call and directions were delivered in good humour, the room was neat, clean and well appointed. The... More

We had a Barbecue and Michael arranged the tables chairs... More

Michael & Kylie are your hosts, along with their two beautiful girls. They take pride in making you feel welcome from the first contact right through to your check-out. The bathroom was in immaculate condition with NO mould anywhere. Nearby there is a family friendly Tavern and within easy walk the local fish Co-op for nice fish'n'chips. We will definitely... More
