Good motel in excellent position in the city. Walking distance to restaurants but parking outside the motel is difficult. Not the motel's fault! Breakfast is included .OK. Jjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj

On a personal family trip to Port Macquarie, my wife & I decided to look for accommodation not too far from the Port CBD. The first place we noticed was the El Paso & decided to try it & the receptionist was very friendly & we were offered a room upgrade at a discounted rate (which, as pensioners, we accepted)....

We "visited" from 100 km away because we were going to see a show at the Glasshouse (200 metres from motel) and found a recently refurbished room: large and tastefully furnished, a lovely big bed and a small bathroom with a good shower. This motel is so close to shops, restaurants, the water and the Glasshouse theatre. We will definitely... More

This is a very good value accommodation stop, good size rooms, good facilities. Great location on the waterfront, good access to local shopping precinct, warm, friendly staff, will be staying there again on return trip.

Only stay for one night and the room had been renovated and was nice and clean. The staff were friendly and there was nothing to complain about. I stayed on a Sunday night and the triathlon was on so getting into the parking took sometime due to road closures and the noise from the finish line continued until just before... More

The El Paso is getting a much needed facelift as the downstairs rooms are stuffy and showing their age rather badly. The restaurant is Ok for a quick breakfast apart from an incredibly creaky fan. The location is fantastic.

A great motel in a perfect location, and for us, a perfect place for a stopover for 1 night during our trip north. The lady at reception was just fantastic, helpful and friendly. Don't ever leave. It was a pity we could not have stayed longer.

This motel is close to everything, the rooms have been recently refurbished, there is a free (although basic) continental breakfast , the dining room / restaurant overlooks the water, there is free WIFI, and the staff is friendly and helpful. Only issue and it is a very small one, is that there is only one chair in front of the... More

Hi Margaritaparrish, Thank you for your comments. The El Paso Motor Inn is located in the CBD of Port Macquarie close to most attractions, the Hastings river and beaches. Which makes it the best place to stay as you can put the car keys down and not have to pick them up until you leave. Yes, most of our rooms... More

Great location in the town centre of Port Macquarie, but very quiet on the night we stayed. Friendly staff, the room was immaculately clean and comfortable and convenient to everything, restaurants, pubs etc. light breakfast was included. Very close to the water. I would absolutely recommend for great value. No view but who cares when it is a sleepover on... More
