General amenities were fine, but the fact is that we barely slept a wink. The mattress was pretty tired and the room was unbelievably noisy (constant traffic noise - no soundproofing). Unless we could score a quiet room at the rear of the motel next time, I wouldn't bother staying again.

Loved the place when I first walked into reception lovely friendly couple running the place. Great room and easy parking on-site. Fast free internet. What else could we ask for. Really hot shower and very comfortable bed and the place is spotless. $94 for a queen double a bargain

We stayed overnight in Ballina on the way to Queensland. We had looked at the comments on trip advisor before stopping at this hotel and found that even though it was a little bit dated it was very reasonably priced and very very clean.

Queen deluxe room is excellent value for money. Has everything you need, cable tv, kettle, toaster, microwave, fridge. Dorothy and Graeme were excellent hosts. Thanks for the little jugs of milk everyday. Will be going back to stay in the future.

I stayed at Motel 3rd May 2016. Bags already in room. Room enormous. Traffic noise zero. Breakfast was excellent for a long day ahead on the bike. Nothing was a problem for the staff at Coast Inn Motel Coffs Harbour New South Wales Australia. Thoroughly recommend this place. Good value for money.

This motel is shoeing it's age but is quite comfortable. Our room was clean and no musty smell. The owner was very helpful and pleasant. Parking is a little tight with great polluting modern vehicles and drivers who can't park.

My husband and I just had a very pleasant stay at the Coast Inn Motel in Ballina. The lady in reception was very helpful, gave us a ground floor room which was lovely and clean and we had a very peaceful night. It is walking distance to the RSL, and eateries close by. Can't recommend it enough.
