My daughter and I enjoyed our stay at the Chaparral Motel. The room was fresh, extremely clean, quiet and safe. The shower was awesome and the bed really comfortable. The free wi-fi was a great bonus. Kylie and Michael are friendly and helpful managers. Will definitely stay again. Thank you!

Spent a night here on the way through to Brisbane and loved it! From the outside the motel looks out-dated but looks can be deceiving! For $90 a night it was great value for money! Check in was great. The owners are lovely people, very friendly and helpful. Having under cover parking at your door is a real bonus that... More

Recently stayed at Chaparral in Ballina for 4 nights & found my room to be clean, comfortable & very handy to the highway. My hosts were a young, friendly couple who were welcoming & helpful. I appreciated the free wifi. Motel is literally across the road from a shopping complex which has everything you could need, including a petrol station... More

If you are looking for a comfortable bed and a basic clean room, you can't go past the Chapparal Hotel in Ballina. We stayed two nights to attend a wedding. Not only is it well situated on River St, across the road from Dan Murphys, bakery and coffee shop, but has the nicest Management I have ever met. Nothing was... More

Spent 2 nights in April 2014 with wifey and kiddo and had a great time. It's an older property but is all clean, fit and proper. Great beds, clean linen and good size rooms. Terrific family running the place who were very welcoming.
