Unfortunately we chose to stay here in the middle of renovations and the weekend of the Port Macquarie iron man. The Fawlty Tours experience started at Check In when we were told that the voucher we purchased (at a charity auction and certainly overpaid for, all for a good cause) was old and the rate had since increased. Thankfully common... More

This motel is currently completing renovations so some slight interruptions did occur. This is a 3 level motel and a lift is being installed. The manager at reception was very polite and very welcoming. The room we had was very spacious, clean, and comfortable beds.. Close to all amenities, the main shopping center, restaurants and beside the water. Great Location.... More

Friendly and helpful staff. The motel is undergoing modernisation and it has been done to a very high standard. The room was comfortable and well presented and tastefully decorated. We had a simple breakfast in our deal of juice, cereal and toast which you could help yourself to, perfectly adequate. Great position, close to the waterfront and the town. It... More

We have stayed at the El Paso many times over the years and it is very conveniently located to Port CBD, so its not a struggle to walk back from the restaurant, movie or pub. The rooms were refurbished (comfy queen bed) and are comfortable and have everything you need for a pleasant stay. Reasonably priced and the rooms out... More

Comfortable, clean and a great position. River, shops and restaurants all in walking distance. Lovely walk along the river path, reading the painted rocks to arrive at a lovely little beach. Plus the bonus of included continental breakfast, a great overnight stopover, will be going back again.

Bill M, Manager at El Paso Motor Inn, responded to this review

As you have pointed out our location with the CBD, River, Shops and Restaurants all very nearby is a major reason guests stay at the El Paso and as our renovations are almost complete guests keep wanting to come back for a stopover or a short break. Thank you for your feedback. More

Greeted by a Friendly reception. Room had been recently renovated and was everything you need: quiet, spacious, clean and comfortable. Motel is in the middle of the cbd so can walk anywhere. The best kept secret was the price - excellent. Will definitely stay again

We stayed in a two bedroom room which has been recently renovated. It was clean, functional and suited our family of 5 fine for a 2 night stay.

Thank you for your kind remarks as we do take these reviews seriously. The pillows we choose are a "mid range" pillows that suit most guests, but sadly not all.
