I stayed in unit 3 it really needs a new mattress. A real ridge on each side of the bed where people sleep!! Not comfy!! Pool not useable! Approached the owner? He said the pump isn't working (he said it had been fixed). No resolve on a hot day in Ballina!🙁

If only the filter had not broken down in such hot weather but unfortunately it did, Murphy's Law they say. Today it was back to it's pristine state and enjoyed by everyone all day. Thanks Ballina Pool Shop for a 24 hour turnaround, sorry Sue you were here on the day it broke down.

We booked this hotel room via mobile phone whilst driving on Pacific Hwy on Monday 28th November evening. Despite our late arrival, we were pleasantly surprised on arrival with a very clean and comfortable room. The hotel has a 1st class restaurant on-site. The meals were excellent. Overall, a very good hotel.

On arrival at the best western at Ballina we were welcomed as if we VIPs, given clear instructions where our accomodation was, the availability of the restaurant and pool. Even though the cheaper accomodation was close to the main road, it was very clean and comfortable. Highly recommended to any weary travellers, bookings were not necessary.

We stayed for a week and had a peaceful night every night. No noise from the road or other visitors. Rooms were clean and spacious. Staff lovely and helpful. Resident dog a hit with the kids. Warm pool. Highly recommend.

Very friendly staff, unit well set out and very clean. Made most welcome for our 3 day stay. Easy to find and very quite even though on the highway. Neat and tidy lawns and out door areas, so able to get out of unit to enjoy some out doors when at the motel.

This was the last stop on our way home and we couldn't have been more satisfied. From the moment we checked-in we felt welcome and important. Because we booked direct with the motel, we were given an upgrade on the room which was very clean, extremely comfortable and quiet with a garden aspect. After hours on the road, we really...

Great place to stay. Owners are very welcoming. Will stay again. Fantastic restaurant which is not expensive. Room was extremely spotless with everything you need. Right on the edge of town but wouldn't stay anywhere else in Ballina. Will definitely be staying again on our next visit

Average motel. The room was clean but its age was obvious. Nice garden, dull surroundings. Few minutes drive to shops and restaurants. Good place to stay for a night but nothing extraordinary. We were informed we got an upgrade at checkin but the room looked pretty much like what we booked.
