“Enjoyable stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

I had a really nice at this motel. It was good value for money. The best part was how clean it was. Everything from the bathroom to the bed and sheets was spotless. The owner was also very friendly and welcoming which adds to a nice stay. I would definitely stay here again!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

I randomly selected this motel as it was reasonably priced and included a continental breakfast. The room was very clean, the bathroom was immaculate and the bed was very comfortable. My car was under cover and I found the staff to be very pleasant. I was recommended to the Ballina RSL for my evening meal which was only a 10 minute walk down the street and the food was delicious. A very pleasurable visit to the Coast Inn and I would definately return.

Room Tip: Further away from the main road is preferred.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2011

My partner and I stayed at the Coast Inn for one night so we could go to a wedding. The motel was easy to find from the highway and it was only a short walk into the main part of town.

The room was immaculately clean and was well maintained. We had a few issues with the shower and getting the right temperature, although the receptionist had advised us of this issue when we checked in and our struggle may have been somewhat related to the champagnes consumed at the wedding.

We had a room upstairs a little back from the road and didn't notice any traffic noises at all. If you were in one of the front rooms it may be noisier, although the same would go for any motels along the highway.

For a three star motel we couldn't complain at all and would certainly stay again if we were in the area.
