Well, I did. Paid over $100 per night for a 2 night stay. Upon arrival I found a big beautiful flashy sign out the front - $70 per night!!! Ripped off 1. Went into reception, he's on the phone "the best price I can do for you sir is $70 including a hot breakfast". Ripped off 2. Onto the room:... More

We stayed here for one night in a one bedroom room. There were two single beds in the bedroom and a queen in the front room. The front room was a little cramped as it also had a table with chairs, and arm chair, a small fridge and and buffet with crockery etc in it. The beds were comfortable with... More

Clean. Friendly staff. Good amenities. In room fridge and microwave. Quiet. Value for money. Older decor. Close to Ballina RSL Chinese food and pizza. No late check out available. Definitely worth a look. Laid back atmosphere where nothing seems to be too much trouble. Extra towels, pillows etc available from staff and not in room. Must ask for them.

My husband & I stopped here as a quick overnight refuge. We knew we wouldn't be there till midnight or after, reception took our payment over the phone & left the keys in the room ready to go for us. It was no fuss and a pleasant sleep.

If you are a fussy traveller who must have all the frills do not stay here! This was the perfect motel for our needs, one night stop over, close to shops, rsl club & Main Street & esplanade, with pubs, restaurants etc all within walking distance. Room has microwave, kettle toaster & kitchen sink so enough to prep a basic... More

We booked this through wotif. We requested a family room as we had both of our fathers travelling with us. From the photos on the web the rooms seemed suitable. On arrival we were so disgusted with the room we left straight away, it was so small there was only one chair to sit on. Not enough for room for... More

Was upstairs which was hard for me and leaving in the morning in the dark was very steep stairs was a little scary. Room... More

Central location and very neat and tidy rooms. I found the room to be quiet and well equiped. It's only a short walk to the main strip and bus stops. There is a vending machine you can access 24 hrs a day with a variety of drinks. Very competitive pricing-the cheapest I found in Ballina, great value!
