Mum & I originally stayed for a few days for business/friends. The day we left, my car broke down & required the part to come from Melbourne. Thanks to the team at El Paso they accommodated us immediately & understood our circumstances. The rooms we had were very clean & all the staff there were welcoming, versed well locally, entertaining... More

I stayed in Room 205 upstairs with my teenage son for one night. Our room was right outside the spiral staircase which was a bit noisy with people coming up and down. Also made you a bit dizzy and was awkward to carry suitcases. Guessing they will be updating this as there is still refurbishing going on. This didn’t create... More

Thank you for your review on your rent stay with us and providing us with your feedback. It is correct that the spiral stair case will be replaced in the near future. It has been our priority to complete the rooms first. The windows you speak of have been purposely installed as the old rooms had no windows at all,... More

We stayed here on the drive from Syd up to Qld and enjoyed it so stayed again on way down! Very convenient and easy, friendly staff (reception and cleaning). Renovated rooms nice, they are doing a good job of keeping everything as pleasant as possible during renos. Brekkie included is v simple but appreciated. Would def consider staying again next...

We're regulars here every month for business. That in itself says quite a lot. As in our earlier reviews, we first chose El Paso simply for its very convenient location, but subsequently because of the great service, together with the quality of fittings and amenities in the tastefully refurbished rooms. Quiet air-conditioning for when there's no breeze from the East-facing... More

This motel is really well located in the centre of Port Macquarie. The glasshouse is over the road and pub and restuarants just up the road. Nice friendly receptionist and a good view over the park and estuary from the balcony on the top floor. Beautiful sunrise.

Will be 5 star when all rooms renovated. Our room was clean and every amenity you would want, including wifi. Saw the renovated rooms and they are fantastic.The benefit is a small complex and great position within walking distance to everything. They accommodated our early morning start by giving us our comp breakfast the night before, great!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would happily recommend the El Paso to anyone passing through for a night or looking to take a holiday in the area. The staff are all very friendly and the rooms are nicely refurbished. There's also free wifi access. Thank you for making my stay a joy, I hope to see you all again... More

We are travelling with a baby and need to bring our pram into the room. They had no basic ground floor rooms available due to renovations so they gave us a deluxe room for the same price. They also offer a free basic brekkie which really helped as we are travelling for quite some time.

Great location, close to the river, CBD, and restaurants. Walking distance to the Glasshouse entertainment venue. Refurbishments well under way and updating the look of this long standing motor inn, bringing it up to a great standard. On site restaurant for complimentary continental breakfast or full cooked breakfast if you prefer.
