“Great stay @ short notice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

I was on a work trip & needed overnight accommodation at very short notice. Found Ballina Island Motel on both QANTAS & Wotif websites but decided to ring the motel direct for a single night booking. They squeezed me in & from check in nothing was a problem for the owners John & Tina. The room was simple but well appointed & clean. All the little extras were there to make the stay comfortable. I was planning on grabbing some takeaway but the restaurant was well priced making takeaway a more expensive option. Great meal with very reasonably priced wine & great company when John joined me for a bite & a chat. The bed was comfortable & the location quiet. Continental brekkie was included in my package. Checkout was just as easy. Yes I'll stay again & throw some of my companies business in the direction of Ballina Island Motel. Thanks guys.

Stayed overnight with my disabled wife and without any hint from me it was noticed that we had a wheelchair and the staff we encountered were most helpful. We will stay here again and again while ever this service is offered.

As a stopover on our way home with 9 month old twins, it was an excellent decision. A little noise from the road, but nothing Major. The rooms are basic but clean and have everything you need and expect. It is the staff that sets it apart from the other motels in the area, they were only too willing to help when they heard we were travelling with twins, too the point of organising a second cot for us to use which wasn't on site. Will defiantly be back next time we pass through.

Just needed a place to rest my head on an overnight business trip and this place more than did the trick. The service at both reception and in the restaurant was great. The room was clean, comfortable and extremely quiet. Would recommend and will stay here next time.

Surprisingly quiet considering it's on the main road, but since the freeway has been diverted out of Ballina, there's not many trucks passing through the town anymore. And although there's a pub across the road, I didn't see/hear any late night rowdiness. I stayed in an economy room for $110 on a Saturday night & it had a bath, so was great value. Parking the car outside the door is very handy. The motel is well maintained & being on the main road they seem to be regularly booked out.

We went to check in for the night and were greeted with a smile. we then went to our room and it turned out to be the same room that we stayed in a good 5 years ago. The room was very clean and tidy except for the wine glasses which were a little dusty and the air conditioner was dusty as well but worked excellently. other than that the room was presented well. Our free breakfast tray was delivered at a good time and was convenient and good. would defiantly recommended to anyone making their way up north :)
