Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Ballina Travellers Lodge Motel was a fabulous place to stay. After a very long day of driving the fellow at reception was most accomodating considering we were going to be a late arrival. I cannot thank them enough for being so helpful and making sure everything was seamless - the lamps and AC were even on so when we got into the room it was nice and comfy. The rooms were fastidiously clean and was the perfect size. It had a premium and cared for feel. The rooms have clearly had a makeover and it is clear that thought and purpose went into making sure it was done right.
Motel is a stones throw from everything you would need in Ballina as well as being very close to the river which is fabulous for a nice morning walk. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this motel.

I initially chose this place as it was nearby the coach stop where I'd be arriving & departing from, and the price was reasonably low & certainly much lower than Byron Bay. I'm so glad I stayed in Ballina as everything I needed was close by anyway, and it was nowhere near as touristy and crowded as Byron.

My room was great, the bed was very comfortable, the air conditioner was very welcoming, the TV was fine for basic watching. I only used the fridge & kettle for coffee in the kitchen but that's all I needed. I kept a few beverages and water cold in the fridge & that was fine.
The shower and toilet area were acceptable. The shower pressure was good, and the temperature was nice and warm.

There was one lady on staff, I didn't catch her name, but she was so friendly. She helped me check in, and she was even able to help me out with washing my clothes for the day while I was out. She went above and beyond to make me feel at home and I really appreciated it.
If I was ever in the area again, I would definitely stay here, and I would recommend it to anyone else.

Fabulous location, located close to the city centre and the river. The local swimming pool and waterslides are also close by if you don't wish it use the pool onsite. Although we didn't get to use it, it was clean and looked incredibly inviting. Staff were lovely: providing us with additional towels without us requesting this service. There is an onsite kitchen that can be used that included a Weber BBQ and space to store your food and perishables in the fridge. Although we were out for most of the time that we were in Ballina, it is a comfortable and inviting place to stay.

We stayed at the Ballina Travellers Lodge for 1 night on our way through to Brisbane. The motel is typical of this style of accomodation and was quite clean but felt a little basic in its fittings (small TV, A/C, etc). The bed was firm but comfortable and the bathroom was simple. The location is ideal for the Richmond River, Woolworths and local restaurants. The price of $235 for the night was surprisingly high - perhaps a result of us only booking on the day of arrival. The pool looked inviting and would be welcomed on a hot day.

Wonderful service from friendly staff. Really clean well appointed rooms.
I will definitely stay here again.
We booked late on our way going north and decided to break the journey in Ballina. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, even though we arrived at midnight.

We service tennis courts and after a hot long dirty day, Travellers' Lodge was perfect. We could take a shower, swim off the aching muscles and stroll along the river to the RSL for a cheap home cooked meal, enjoying the splendour of Ballina.the bathrooms and kit hen facilities were spotless and well stocked. The bedroom was comfortable too. We will make this our base when working in this region.

What a great little place. I would absolutely recommend it for families. Very neat and clean, lovely pool and the room was great. We will definitely be back. I’ve stayed at other places in Ballina that I would not return to.

We stayed here for one night whilst travelling from Sydney to Brisbane. This is the fourth time we have stayed here. The motel is in a quiet location but within walking distance to the main part of town. The room was adequate in size, clean and the bed very comfortable. Staff were friendly and accommodating. We did not pre book the room.

Lovely quite location, clean room & swimming pool was fantastic. Our room was fairly compact, and the bathroom area was very tiny. But the bed & air conditioner were great.
Cleaning staff ( Lady ) was precious, anything you needed, all you had to do was ask. So helpful, what a gem. Shared kitchen available, with everything you think you would need.
HELPFUL TIP - go for room #1 if it's available for a couple stay. Apparently room & bathroom area is bigger.
