Coast Inn Motel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

good location, room comfortable and although on the highway not much traffic noise evident. ideal for overnight or perhaps longer. value for money and would stay there again. bathroom perhaps a bit small but overall good.

Staff were welcoming and friendly, neat tidy comfortable room, quiet even though on main road, close to shops and the RSL! Will definitely stay here again! Also close to the river walk, for those who enjoy a stroll!

I love this place! I have stayed here multiple times with my family over the last couple of months. Always clean and the staff are always so nice and friendly. It's local to the shops and cafe and only 20min to Byron.

Staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful. The room is dated, but it is very clean and tidy and has a new bathroom. Free Wi-Fi was great. Newish air-con, fridge, microwave, toaster etc. Would stay again.

Being on the way south we stopped over at the Coast Inn Motel in Ballina. The lady in the reception was very nice and prepared as some milk for coffe/ tea on next morning. The room had all as described in the booking form on lastmiunte. As most motels in Australia (from my experience) it lacks some charme. It is cramped in wit h the next one on the block. As it was intended to give the kids a typical experience it served its purpose. And for a trader it might be ok to stay here even longer than a night. As a holiday I would not choose this (or any other motels I saw in Ballina) motel.

Budget hotel showing its age in the building but with new and clean soft furnishings and nice, professional managers. Could do with upgrade to mattress. Close enough to walk to dinner (many options) and shops. Good for an overnight stay.

Highly recommended, very good value for money. Lovely host where nothing was any trouble for Darren. Room very clean and comfortable with easy access and within walking distance to RSL and main shopping area, everything you need in a motel room.

Clean, comfortable room. Good value for the price. Managers were very friendly and helpful. Very central location to town with plenty of parking. Would stay here again if we were ever down that way again.

The hotel room was clean , comfortable and quiet . Great location and prise is affordable. I can recommend it if you don't need wy-fy, because it was nearly dead. However, the hotel is worth the price .

I stayed here while I was in the area for a friend's wedding. I arrived well before check in time and asked if I could stow my bag. Nathan told me that my room was ready and that I could check in early. No problems at all. He was also able to to me about where the wedding was as he was a local. He even came up the stairs to let me know that my taxi had arrived. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. If I return to Ballina I will be checking to see if this place has a vacancy. What more can I say!
