Reviewed 28 November 2017

Nice older style motel. The owner was very friendly and welcoming. Room was spacious and tidy but dust on fan, bedheads and lights detracted from overall room impression. Good towels and linen. A great feature is the undercover parking at your door, ideal when raining (which it was when unpacking) and in the heat next day.
Good for an inexpensive overnight stay, would stay again. You also get a member card to the local Cherry bowling club down the road (nice meal).

Room Tip: Undercover parking at your door

Friendly owner made us welcome. Undercover parking great in the heat. Room at first glance looked very well presented however, cleaning needs vast improvement. Bed heads, bedside lamps and fan blades covered in thick dust. Bathroom needs makeover, old shower needs thorough clean for mould. Leaking taps. Shampoo and conditioner not supplied had to go buy some. Road noise not a problem at all but inconsiderate guests in adjoining rooms slammed doors during the late night. If cleaning improved it would be a good average accom.

I stayed here for one night, the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and spacious. The location is close to shops for food and is well positioned for ease of access to the town centre and main roads.

We have often stayed here during visits to Ballina. The new owners are friendly and very helpful and their dog welcomes you to their motel! The rooms are clean, bright and recently renovated. Pool area is lovely and relaxing. Great location, within walking distance of restaurants, clubs and shops. We'll be back!
