My husband and I stayed here for two nights while helping family move house. Our room was clean and quiet and the bed very comfortable. We didn't use any of the facilities as we had no time. Would certainly stay here again.

Loved the two double beds in the twin room, great bathroom set up and free WiFi. The family rooms were well located and had interconnecting doors for larger families. Perfect. Would definitely stay again.

The 2nd time I have stayed at the Best Western Ballina and both times I have had excellent service, brilliant meals. The rooms are clean and tidy well appointed, no traffic noise. The staff in the restaurant and hotel are exceptionally pleasant and well mannered and very professional in their manner. Would highly recommend this as a place to stay.

For what it is, it's a nice little area and motor inn. The service was prompt and informative. The only let down is the free wi-fi which you had to re-sign back into every 15 minutes or so. But it's free so I probably shouldn't complain! Despite having an on-site restaurant they didn't deliver hot breakfasts which I was a...

Hi Elly. I am so sorry we were not able to deliver a hot breakfast to your room, you must have stayed a Saturday night as we deliver hot breakfasts Monday to Saturday but only continental on Sundays as our chefs have the day off. The WiFi can be frustrating at times, we have had the system examined and have...

Service can make or break an experience. We were more welcomed by the gorgeous dog than the owner. He was a very grumpy person & made the experience unpleasant. The room was good. Only downside was the built up soap scum on the shower glass, it wasn't a good look. Bed was comfortable. Convenient location. The place is looking a...

Evening Kas, I am sorry your stay was not up to your expectations. You are right we did not offer room service breakfasts while the cricket team was with us due to kitchen staffing logistics and public holidays, but we did offer all guests the opportunity to come to the restaurant and either order from the a la carte menu...

We stayed for two nights at the Ballina Island Motor Inn, and were pleased to find it provided spacious, clean and comfortable accommodation. The facilities were certainly adequate for our needs, and the owners and staff were all most friendly and helpful. Would stay there again.
