Renovations needed
The room was okay, very old, needs some renovations, the tv was too high, gave a neck ache looking up to it ,but otherwise okay.

Good one-night motel
Typical motel of its era, adequate but nothing special.
Kenneth, au1 night trip
Almare Tourist Motel, Ballina
This was a budget motel but the room is lovely and has everything you need. Air conditioning was good. Microwave and toaster were good. Shower and bathroom were fine. Sink is small so you can’t wash up your pots and I felt bad leaving them for someone else to clean. Bed comfort was superb.

Avoid room 4A
The Queen room no. 4A is only half of the size of the other queen rooms. With such a space difference, they should sell it as a single room or budget queen room. I am not happy about being given the much smaller room at the same price .

Friendly, cheerful service. Clean and comfortable. We felt we had value for money and would choose to stay here again. The little extra things - cutlery, crockery, bbq were appreciated.
