Partner, baby and i stayed here one night and was extremely happy with our accommodation, hosts were super nice and welcoming. Room was big enough for portacot and bed was comfy enough. Would happily stay again if in the area :)

This is the sort of place that one would stay purely out of desperation. We stayed here for one night during the 2014 Byron Blues Feast because we couldn't get accommodation elsewhere. To say that it is basic is overstating it. The room's had a very musty smell, the decor was dated (or at least stuff Vinnies would reject!) and... More

This is the sort of place that would suit a desperado. I was that person and it filled a need to have a bed for the night. To say that it is basic is an understatement. The only highlight of the room was the amazing hot shower that I had. Apart from this, I'd say go elsewhere.

As we drove towards our room I noticed how muddy the grounds were around the motel. Upon entering our room the first thing I noticed was the musty smell. The room decor was dated and in my opinion should be chucked out, I don't even think St Vinnies would accept the bed and bedside table. The toilet & basin dripped... More

Stayed here for the night on a trip south. All I needed was a place to get a good night sleep that was clean and comfortable without breaking the bank. Ballina motel was the place and was more than happy. The bed was great, the room was neat and clean and the bathroom was a good size and spotlessly clean.... More

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... More

We stayed here for three nights, it was all we could get into when Splendour in the Grass was on in Byron Bay. The room was clean with bedding and furniture that is extremely old and worn. The sink was cracked and chipped and I thought it might fall off the wall and the bathroom smelled musty. After getting back... More

This motel was the cheapest my wife and I could find for an overnight stay from Brisbane to Newcastle and we got what we paid for. There is no opening hours for the front desk so you need to ring the mobile (which said it was disconnected) or press the bell or ring the front desk and they will come... More
