I was interested in staying at the Chaparral as my parents owned it for a few years in the late 70’s. I was impressed as the rooms were clean and comfortable and of a generous size. It was very convenient parking at the front of my room number 6. I’d definitely stay again.

First time staying here and it definitely won’t be the last. King room downstairs, spotless room, blockout blinds and curtains, massive rain head shower, table and chairs, fresh milk if needed and biscuits, no noise from nearby pub with 20% off meals for showing room key. Cooked breakfast was great. What a find. Thank you Elaine and Shaun for your attention to detail and genuine friendliness.

Our last minute booking was appreciated. We arrived late at night and had clear instructions for key location etc. We were upgraded to a king suite for free. The room was very clean and tidy. The shower was awesome. My husband and I kept losing each other in the massive and comfortable bed. We travel with 2 assistance dogs and the owners were just so awesome about it and even came to greet us in the morning when the puppers had toilet time. We will definitely stay again.

Chaparral Motel, Ballina

We were on a road trip and was really tired, so we need to stop for a night , the reception was really nice and sweet, a nice lady and brought us to our room , really spacious for 3 person, the bath also clean , with a good shower, fridge and fresh milk and coffee and tea maker, however the wall a bit thin, as our neighbor was upset and banged our door to yelled at us, it wasn’t even 10 pm, didn’t really upsetting us, as we were tired too, the plus point is the parking space just Infront of our room, the location is also good, we didn’t really pay too much attention with the surrounding, however its next to the big prawns, we were really appreciated this place.
