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.

Great place for our stay in Ballina. Rooms were spotless and well set out. The wi-fi worked well and quick. Bed was comfortable. We received fresh towels every day and they also washed the dishes. Car parks are under cover and enough room to get luggage out. Good facilities BBQ, Pool, and table tennis, large grass area for kids to play. Would like to see double power points, so that lap-tops and phone chargers could be plugged in. We loved our stay here.

We had a single night in Ballina to attend a funeral the next day. This is an "older style" motel but was perfectly adequate and very reasonably priced. Most rooms are well set back from the main road towards the back of the large property making it very quiet. The setting is very nice with plenty of outdoor space with a large grassed area and pool in the middle. The rooms open onto a verandah overlooking this area with chairs and picnic tables to sit out or for breakfast. The rooms were very neat and clean. The motel owners are friendly and offered to collect us from the airport and drop us back if we needed a lift. We would like to say a special thank you to the lovely Julie who provided us with a place to change after our funeral (well after we'd already checked out).

Stayed in a 2 bedroom unit for 3 nights. The unit was clean and tidy. Even with 5 of us it didn’t feel too overcrowded. Great position, there is a great seafood shop across the road and a pub up the street and it’s only short drive to Coles and Woolies. Would definitely stay again!

The place was clean and comfortable with friendly staff and well kept facilities. Rooms are looking a bit old, but more than adequate. Good water pressure in shower and covered free parking for the car. It has a nice pool and bbq area. Unfortunately the free wifi was pretty much unusable as the speed was pretty much non existent, below .5 mps. Tv was pretty small with very limited Foxtel channels. Air conditioning requires the insertion of a key to make it work but it did its job. Would have been happy with just a fan but the ceiling fan was a bit noisy, even on a medium setting. Would stay again. Good value for money.

This Motel had the last remaining room available in Ballina for our two night stay . What a surprise it was being a little retro gem with pool . Perfect for families . Great priced room , very comfortable bed , Super clean . Quiet, with off street parking . Microwave , Foxtell , great shower . Close to town , No bells and whistles , but it has everything you could need . Friendly welcoming owner.
