We found the man on reception very friendly and helpful, motel room was very clean and comfortable with microwave great shower head and nice hot water. Within walking distance of supermarket and a good fish shop 2 doors up, didn't hear any road noise plus free wifi which worked well. Room rates are very reasonable.

We stayed there for one night and would definitely stay again. The room was modern and clean and the staff helpful and pleasant. It's a short drive to Ballina RSL and other cafes etc. for breakfast. Beaches and shopping centres not too far away and room quiet considering its on a main road.

What a great place for a quickish stop or a bit longer if you can. We were upgraded to a delux room, these are located on the ground floor of the two story complex, just because! Well appointed, comfortable beds, seriously comfortable, pick a pillow...amazing, great linen all round, face washers, microwave, toaster, kettle, fridge, fresh milk, great size room... More

Good clean Motel. Friendly staff at Reception. We did not hear any noise from the main road. Good shower pressure. It is an older Motel but do recommend staying here, but if you want to be closer to the Town Centre for walking to Restaurants and shopping there are other accommodation places.

Was very pleased with the level of comfort in my well appointed room. The bed was very comfortable. Reception made me feel welcome. There was no noise from the main road so was able to have uninterrupted sleep. Thanks for the upgrade which was much appreciated.

Just dropped in, didn't have a booking, ended staying for 3 days, they were fantastic finding me a room at a busy time of the year. The room was clean and very comfortable, the only problem was the noisy birds at sunset and sunrise, it is a problem in Ballina.
