“Nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014

The reception was very friendly. We have seen a lot of rooms in five weeks traveling. This was alright. Beds slept super. Wifi was for free. The restaurant was very quiet but the food was super. We had a very nice stay.

Room Tip: Eating in the restaurant was very good.

Unfriendly reception by totally uninterested gentleman at reception,he offered us an grade for $15 which we agreed upon but although clean and comfortable not worth paying extra for one night.
Location was good for RSL and other eating venues throughout the town,however the man in reception should realise and know that a SMILE goes a long way !

Room Tip: Don't bother paying extra for an upgrade!

The motel room was well appointed with all mod-cons, including wifi. The bed and linen were of a high standard, as was the cleanliness. The staff was welcoming, friendly and helpful. The motel has a very good restaurant with a broad menu. We stayed in an inside room, which cut off all road noise. The only downside was the distance to the town centre, where travel by car is necessary. There are, however, some good dining options within easy walking distance. We used the motel as a base for visiting the area; and it served that purpose very well.

Room Tip: Select an inside room to avoid any road noise.

Booked last minute one night stay. Very friendly welcome. Excellent room - clean, spacious, well equipped, very comfortable bed, great shower. No on site meal available but were offered take away Chinese or recommended west over inn (300m away) for "steak dinner" option. Opted for second choice - great meal, great value no complaints.

Nice little hotel just outside on Ballina CBD.

Friendly staff, room was spacious and clean. Free Wifi, parking right outside your door (single storey).

I ate dinner at the restaurant and it was really nice food.

Nice and basic for the cost and rating.

Well done guys!

Brilliant place to stay. We stayed for a 5 nights on a short holiday and thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The staff, in particular Tina, the manager, were exceptional. Rooms were very clean and well kept.
Dining at Lily's Garden Restraunt was definitely a highlight. The waiter was outstanding, and very knowledgeable.
Highly reccommended.
