“Clean and comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

My family and I stayed recently for an overnight visit. The room and bathroom were quite small (ours had a queen bed and a single bed in it) but are sufficient for a quick stop. The room was immaculately clean and the beds were very comfortable.

On arriving l was told l was late and messed up the grumpy ladies plans ,[ 5.30 pm ] Lack of charm is an under statement . Was told my work car would be better parked in the street , [ a brand new medium sized people mover ] I parked it with ease outside my room . Rooms were an odd lay out and I am sure I wont ever go back.

We stayed in a double room with its own facilities. The location is quiet and well off the main streets. It is billed as walk to restraunts. Well that is true but there are not a lot of restraunts at that end of town. Most are about half way up the main street.

The room was clean, comfortable and reasonablly well appointed. All the rooms are ground floor and typical of the buildings age it has brick feature walls which we do not find a problem.

There is sufficient off street parking and you drive straight in. Geting out is a little more difficult and we had to reverse out to the street. I noticed that we were not the only vehicle that did this as when the car park has a few cars in it there is no space to turn around.

The signage says there is wireless internet but it available only if you pay, though we were offered the first hour for free.

We did not have breakfast.

Stayed for one night in the super saver room. Very clean, communal kitchen well equipped, and nice price for those on a budget. Only one comment; there is a small table and chairs right outside the rooms for smokers, so it tends to be a social gathering point and the talking can be disturbing if you're after an early night. Other than that, a great place.

We were looking for a great value for our dollars and found it here at the Traveller's Lodge in Ballina, NSW. We were in a fully enclosed room. There were backpacker accomodation as well but we like having our own bathroom. Sometimes when you stay at a place, the bed is not very comfy but the queen we were on was lovely. We were right by the pool too. If I had to stay again, I would do so without hestiation. It is in a great location close to the main street and with in walking distance to the shops and cafes. Check in was easy and the hostess was very helpful.

Staying for 3 nights in a super saver room for $62.00/night.

PROS: nice looking modern room
new large fluffy white towels
sparkling clean
pristine communal kitchen and lounge room
close to centre and quiet

CONS: uncomfortable mattress seen better days
very small room and small TV
no bath mat or hand towel in communal bathroom


If you want to save money, this is the perfect place and the pros far outweigh the cons if you want to stay in one of the supersaver rooms. I feel bad mentioning any cons but it is better to be informed so you know what to expect. This would have to be one of the cleanest places I have ever stayed in and I loved the large new fluffy white towels. I was really happy to use the kitchen because it was so clean to make my dinner. I would not hesitate to stay here again and highly recommend it for the price.

Room Tip: There are only 3 supersaver rooms so book in early if you want to save money.
