My room was orderly and clean. Although the room is inside a little bit dark, I had a very pleasant stay. The bathroom is also nice and clean and the bed was excellent. Nathan is very friendly and I would stay again at this motel.

We stayed for three nights in Jan. Rooms are super clean, and serviced daily. Housekeeping very discreet and thorough. Air con does a great job, wifi is very quick. TV was a good size. Hosts are very friendly and happy to give advice on the local area. We stayed in the very front room and did not have any issues...

We stayed here whilst traveling north. A decent sized open plan living space for the three of us. It came with a fridge but no kitchenette so we couldn't cook so we decided to walk into town..... Note to self arrive before 8 if you want to find somewhere open! A very quiet town which meant an early night all...

This is a great place for business travellers. It is moderately priced and has a bright light to work by. The rooms are clean and in good condition. Breakfast is good. It is close to other quality restaurants all within walking distance. try not to get the front units, they are a bit noisy from the nearby road.

Not a bad motel, good enough for an overnight stay. Outdated but cheap. The aircon didn't work and the temperature was mid 30's outside so that as well as the bed not being very comfy made it really hard to sleep and the pillow was really flat. It is a cheap motel and we couldn't hear any outside noise from...

Was welcomed in by owner, who was super lovely and nice to have a chat with! Even told me about his trip to York! (Not far from where I live). Room was comfortable and really clean! Was really happy with the place. Bed was a little hard and not very soft but that's just down to personal taste. I bought...

The room was clean and the bed was so comfortable. Staff were welcoming and very helpful. Within walking distance of cafes and restaurants. I'd highly recommend the Coast Inn for a great stop over in Ballina.

Luv the room it was cosy. The room we stayed in was just right nothing fancy or over the top kinda room. Just an original basic room but very clean. Everything there for you to relax and chill. I am not a fancy person and don't care where I stay as long as it's cosy. Booking in a room at...

Management response:

Hi Richard, We can only apologise again for the inconvenience caused by the fuse that tripped, meaning that we had no hot water for the Friday night. It is the first time this has ever happened and once the problem was discovered, it was immediately fixed and we did have hot water again but not until the next morning. Through...
