I found and stayed here spontaneously about 7 years ago and was delighted to come across it again on my latest road trip through Port Macquarie. I was able to check in easily without a booking. The staff member at the check-in desk was friendly, professional and kind. The room I was allocated was very clean, quiet, spacious and had... More

We've stayed in Port Macquarie before but always a little further away from the centre. This was a great find as motel-style accommodation with lots of nearby options for food. Continental breakfast included; a great deal. They appear to have done some renovations and these are still ongoing, but it didn't disturb or inconvenience us. They have wi-fi but we... More

Yes our location right in town is superb, and many guests comment on this. During our renovations we try to keep guests away from works for their improved comfort. Sorry about the wifi that night as our provider was down. Great to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. Bill M Manager More

My family travel to visit my great-grandmother a lot and always stay here. It's just been renovated & refurbished and you get complimentary continental breakfast daily which is a nice touch. Rooms are basic but comfortable and all that we need. Unfortunately our last visit was for my great-grandmothers funeral, so I shouldn't imagine we'd be staying again much, but... More

Our second visit, El Paso is an easy comfortable stay, strolling distance to the shops in town. Rooms are simple but clean, the continental breakfast is a welcome start to the day. Not fancy, but a clean honest stay that's accommodating for travelers.

I had planned a tour here for a group of 30 in October 2014 and came in August to check. Location wonderful. Room good . Restaurant outstanding. It will be perfect for our group, but is also excellent for just two of us.

Great to hear you enjoyed the El Paso Motor Inn recently, and better still that it will suit your group booking for later in the year. It is our location that draws many guests to the Refurbished El Paso as does the Waterfront Restaurant, great chef and staff. I look forward to seeing you again in October More

Mum & I originally stayed for a few days for business/friends. The day we left, my car broke down & required the part to come from Melbourne. Thanks to the team at El Paso they accommodated us immediately & understood our circumstances. The rooms we had were very clean & all the staff there were welcoming, versed well locally, entertaining... More

I stayed in Room 205 upstairs with my teenage son for one night. Our room was right outside the spiral staircase which was a bit noisy with people coming up and down. Also made you a bit dizzy and was awkward to carry suitcases. Guessing they will be updating this as there is still refurbishing going on. This didn’t create... More

Thank you for your review on your rent stay with us and providing us with your feedback. It is correct that the spiral stair case will be replaced in the near future. It has been our priority to complete the rooms first. The windows you speak of have been purposely installed as the old rooms had no windows at all,... More

We're regulars here every month for business. That in itself says quite a lot. As in our earlier reviews, we first chose El Paso simply for its very convenient location, but subsequently because of the great service, together with the quality of fittings and amenities in the tastefully refurbished rooms. Quiet air-conditioning for when there's no breeze from the East-facing... More
