“I wish more motels were like this.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

I'm a sales rep that travels all over the country and this place is one of the best motels I've stayed at.
The rooms have a real homely feel and they do a great breakfast.
I wish there were more motels like this one.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Stayed overnight at this place with the family. Very clean and comfortable .The motel is located off the main road to the town centre so no traffic noise to endure during the night. We would certainly stay here again. The only negative was the WIFI reception in the morning but it may just be the tyranny of distance from the office to the motel room.

Room Tip: No cook top in the kitchenette so don't go buying groceries beforehand that need a cook top.

A little oasis away from home.. Comfy beds, good shower and relaxing decor as well as great breaky! I'm a regular guest for my work trips and highly recommend to anyone, after trying out a few others in ballina too!

A great stay at this motel over two nights.

The room was very spacious and the kitchenette permitted the flexibility to prepare light meals at will. The furniture and fittings were all fresh and clean and the little touches such as a mixture of teas and coffees, dishwashing liquid and cleaning materials made it outstanding. Bathroom was also very clean with great water pressure too.

There's no restaurant dining room but the local sports club is only a few minutes walk away. The breakfast choices available, and delivered to the room, were fantastic. Fresh, well cooked and very well presented.

Location was excellent and only 50 metres from the river and the extensive walking and bike paths.

Highly recommended

What a lucky find, we just happened upon the motel as we were driving around looking for somewhere to stay for the night and I was at the 'anywhere will do' point. What a lovely small motel, very friendly receptionist. Beautifully appointed & furnished, very clean & comfortable. Would not hesitate to recommend this property.

Just stayed at this motel for two nights. Very clean and spacious. Parking out front, easy to find. Well equipped and comfortable. We had to actually stay in the room because of the weather rain rain and more rain... Luckily the room was comfortable enough for us not to go stir crazy. Recommend for overnight stay or longer.

Excellent motel. The rooms are large, clean and well equipped for guest's convinces. Parking are right in front of room. The beds are comfortable. What can I say, except I just stayed in a 4 1/2 stars apartment 5 days and wished I had stayed at Ballina Palms Motor Inn instead. Congratulations management and keep up the standard.
