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. The complimentary breakfast was fine for me, some fruit or yogurt as additions would of been nice, but in saying that none of the family complained about what was available. The pool... More

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. By contacting reception we may have swapped to a more comfortable option for you. The free complimentry continental breakfast we do offer is a basic start but some guests like... More

Must admit it has been many years, try fourty, since last seeing the El Paso, we were pleasantly surprised, The upgrade has been good, rooms are right up to standard and the motel position is perfect. All shops and restaurants are just metres away. Look for a Tapas bar at the Royal Hotel, Well done El Paso, we will be... More

I stayed here for 1 night on business in September, 2014. It's not my first trip to the El Paso Motor Inn and felt it needed a re-review after a previous stay. I stayed in one of the newly renovated rooms. New carpets, new bathroom, new bedding and new furniture and it was certainly a more pleasant and modern feel... More

Stayed in one of the older rooms (110) and ended up being quite disappointed. I might have been willing to accept it if we had paid half the price, but at the rate we paid it was not worth it. Maybe they could get away with the high price because the motel is right in town or it was a... More

Sorry to hear of your disapproval. We do offer different levels of rooms and you chose one of our unrenovated rooms at this time. I have gone over every blanket in that room and cannot locate the offending item. Our room pricing is quite comparable with other accomodation providers and as you point because we are right in town. Very... More

They have done a lot to improve this motel in Center of the city and on the river. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant which is a separate business is also good the dinners are nice . I would suggest the breakfast which is included in the room is not adequate. I would recommend you pay a... More

Thank you for your kind remarks, and yes our refirb is almost complete. The continential breakfast is included in the price as a "starter" and I appreciate some would like a larger breakfast but some only enjoy a light breakfast. As you mentioned we do offer different levels of accomodation to suit most guests, that is up to the guest... More

Stayed at El Paso for a night on the way back from Byron to Sydney. The staff were really lovely and helpful and we were lucky enough to get into one of the newly renovated rooms.
