Fantastic service. The managers are so welcoming and friendly. In a very convenient location. Refurbished rooms are comfortable and stylish. The new lift this time made it easier. My children enjoyed the use of the pool. I can't wait to come back again.

Our service is a key contributor as to why many guests come back to The El Paso Motor Inn, not to mention our renovated rooms a lift to all floors and of course our location right in town. So happy to hear your family enjoyed your stay with us and we look forward to your next visit More

We stayed here one night on an overnight stay while travelling. The room was recently refurbished so the décor was very pleasant and the amenities were great. Nice comfortable bed and shower and breakfast was included in the price. The restaurant was also open at night and we had a delicious meal here as well. I would recommend this complex... More

You will have to come back and stay a little longer next time. Great to hear that our property was up to your expectations and that you slept well after a long hot shower. We do like to add some extra benefits for our guests and the free continental breakfast is very popular. The fact that you can park undercover... More

I've been staying at the El Paso for over forty years for it's location right in the heart of Port Macquarie and it was a pleasure to return and enjoy their upgraded rooms.The rooms still have comfy beds but lighter brighter decor and brand new bathrooms made my stay even more pleasurable.

El Paso What can I say. The only reason I give it 1 star is because that's the lowest you can give - the "free" continental breakfast was the only positive that I could give this hotel. We just needed a place to stay overnight as we were driving up to Lismore. It was a couple of weeks after Christmas... More

Had a newly renovated room, which was clean and fresh. Looked on the Main Street, I was very worried about the traffic noise, but I didn't even notice it. Bed comfortable. Shower hot and powerful. Breakfast was included with our room, it was juice cereal toast with spreads and tea or coffee. Value for money a pleasant stay. Will return.... More

I've stayed in Port Macquarie many times for both business and pleasure but accommodation had usually been arranged by someone else - this was my choice and I wasn't disappointed: it was clean, quiet, CHEAP, had free wifi, free continental breakfast and was close to the shops. We basically needed a bed for one night while driving between Ballina &... More

The room was quite small for 3 persons, with stains on the carpet and no window. Equiped by old and worn beds and furniture, we would definitely expect more for $160 The breakfast included was also very poor, therefore I can't recommend this place

Our overnight stay in Port Macquarie was enhanced by our stay at El Paso Inn. The reception staff were delightful and very welcoming. Our room was very comfortable and certainly value for money. The motel is ideally located in the CBD and close to the town beach. We would definitely stay here again.

The newly renovated room was everything you would expect in a basic motor inn. Clean and all the amenities required. We arrived later than 9 and had no problem getting into our room with the system they had in place. The continental breakfast, as described by others, is a bit weak. Basically juice, coffee, cereal (choice of 4) and (warm)... More

I am a little confused with your comments, yes we are newly renovated and yes we are clean and offer all the amenities required but based on many other comments received from past guests we are far from a "Basic Motor Inn" . We continually work on improvements to our property and we do take your feedback very seriously. A... More

We stayed overnight at the end of January, in a fully renovated king room on the 5th floor of the El Paso.

The location is adjacent to the main shopping precinct and opposite the beautiful Hastings River. A light continental... More
