Booked 2 nights. Used Google maps but unable to recognise facility as no Motel signage & entry is off the main street mentioned on Google. My bedroom appeared clean. Bathroom disgusting. Mouldy ceiling, dusty toilet brush holder, bathroom floor tiles needed a good scrub, 3 x 30 ml shampoo/ conditioner tubes provided but 1 was only 2/3 full. Showed photos to Management at breakfast & I was reimbursed breakfast cost. On return prior to 2nd night's stay, toilet holder had been wiped down but but still unclean. See photos.

Dear Carol, Thank you for your feedback and for choosing to stay at Ballina Homestead Motel, we appreciate it. Our sincere apologies about the bathroom, we'll share your comments/images with our housekeepers to ensure our standards are met and there is no reoccurrence of this incident. The images you have taken from behind the toilet however refer to worn seals that will be addressed as part of our bathroom refurbishment program. Unfortunately the motel is not new and whilst we have renovated all our rooms, some of the bathrooms need to be upgraded however still reflect the standard of a 3 1/2 star motel. Regarding the signage or lack thereof, we had our sign removed as required by council to make room for the new roundabout construction. The recently finished roundabout has vastly improved access to our motel and has made a difficult intersection much safer for traffic. We offer no excuse for not having an old-fashioned motel sign since most people use mobile phones for navigation and we have a very prominent corner location.

We had to take our beloved Labrador with us at short notice so I was lucky to find availability at this motel. We were thrilled by the incredibly modern tidy and comfortable studio which looked almost brand new. The studios have their own entrance from the back of the motel where you can park outside your room. There is also a small private courtyard where you can have your meals. A terrific coffee shop is attached to the motel serving good food and Byron Bay coffee. I had booked without doing my usual research but was very, very pleased with the comfort of the room. Good new air conditioning, TV and comfortable bed. Highly recommended, with or without pets.

Good night's accommodation. Travelling for work and I appreciated the workspace and practicality of the establishment. Nice walk down to the river and conveniently located cafe. Unfortunately the carpark was cramped and the balcony was not private

Clean and comfortable stay. Renovated with modern bathroom. Nice air-conditioning with a unit per room. We liked the pool and lovely gardens outside our room. Undercover parking was good for hot days. Found the main room to be more cramped than expected but was fine for a one-night stay. The dining table inside was too small for our family of three. Ample benchtop space in the kitchenette with full-sized fridge and microwave, but no stovetop. Overall, good value for money for a short stay.
