Stopped at the El Paso for 3 nights with our Senior Citizens group - could not have found a better spot. Right in the centre of town - walk to everything. Rooms excellent, Dining was great, staff went out of their way to help - particularly with some of our older members , they carried everything for them to and... More

Stayed here o'night, had to lug our suitcase up 5 flights, and down again next day. Really inconvenient and frustrating for elderly people. They did apologise with notices pinned up - but.........too late once you are there. Room was nice and very clean, though new ensuite could have been configured better. No door on shower, water still pours out, towel... More

I stayed again for 2 nights at El Paso Motor Inn, which is the third time I have stayed here. The room was one of the original (i.e. non-renovated) rooms and had a small kitchenette with a microwave. As it is nearly 5 years since my first review of El Paso, to reiterate some of the great features of El... More

When ever I visit Port Macquarie I always stay at The El Paso Motor Inn. It is in an extremely convenient location near the centre of town and has a great outlook over the bay. The walking track along the break wall is sensational any time of the year. The motel itself has recently gone through major renos and has... More

Right in the middle of town, El Paso is undergoing a makeover. The room I had had been updated with a nice new bathroom. Everything else in the room was good, but the desk needs some lighting above it. The room lights just don't provide enough for you to work for too long. I hope they are going to update... More

We attended a large family wedding at Port Macquarie and many of the family stayed at the El Paso Motor Inn. The owners were very friendly and accommodating, as we arrived early and were able to book in straight away. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the included breakfast was great value. The El Paso is perfectly situated within... More

We discovered this motel back in 2008, we enjoyed our stay and so when passing through we would break our trip at the El Paso. Over the years they have refurbished the motel and it is looking very nice. We like the area because there are plenty of eating places and sights to see. The rooms are clean and the... More

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
