Dropped in to the Ballina Motel for a two night stay with a mate while on a trip up the coast. We wanted something cheap, yet reasonable enough and for $75 for the night we thought we had found it...how wrong we were!
On upon entering the extremely small room, the first thing we noticed was the tiled floors with two beds- both on wheels which moved everytime there was any weight put on them. Voices that weren't ours could be heard through the paper thin walls and the room smelt like a sweaty old man. The bathroom had more hair on the floor than there was visable tiles, and the toilet paper was so thin and scratchy that every time you wiped it could have been mistaken for sand paper.
Outside our room was the remnants of what could be described as grass, but had become mud patches that smelt of manure.
There were several suspicious stains on the blankets on the bed and the chairs which occupied the small room.
This place was extremely dirty, dated, and should really be shut down before someone catches an unidentified disease.
We forfeited our second night stay and strongly suggest the owners use the extra $75 to fix the place up a bit.
