Thank you for your pleasant response, I will be sure to pass it onto staff. It is all about Location Location Location, where guests can walk to almost everything. Staff are happy to help carry bags too and from rooms, and guests only have to ask should they require any assistance. We are nearing completion of a major renovation which... More

Stayed here o'night, had to lug our suitcase up 5 flights, and down again next day. Really inconvenient and frustrating for elderly people. They did apologise with notices pinned up - but.........too late once you are there. Room was nice and very clean, though new ensuite could have been configured better. No door on shower, water still pours out, towel... More

Dear Mr and Mrs Mitchell, Thank you for your email and sorry for any inconvenience you had to endure during your stay with us. You are correct we are near the end of a fairly major renovation of the El Paso Motor Inn which will include as you mentioned a lift to all floors and our lift is currently under... More

I stayed again for 2 nights at El Paso Motor Inn, which is the third time I have stayed here. The room was one of the original (i.e. non-renovated) rooms and had a small kitchenette with a microwave. As it is nearly 5 years since my first review of El Paso, to reiterate some of the great features of El... More

At the El Paso we offer different levels of accommodation, from our budget rooms to mid range rooms or fully renovated rooms with private balconies, we do offer something for everybody. I see from your comments that we "ticked many of the boxes" that guests require when travelling and I have noted your comments on the missing coat hook and... More

When ever I visit Port Macquarie I always stay at The El Paso Motor Inn. It is in an extremely convenient location near the centre of town and has a great outlook over the bay. The walking track along the break wall is sensational any time of the year. The motel itself has recently gone through major renos and has... More

Right in the middle of town, El Paso is undergoing a makeover. The room I had had been updated with a nice new bathroom. Everything else in the room was good, but the desk needs some lighting above it. The room lights just don't provide enough for you to work for too long. I hope they are going to update... More

We are comming to the end of a major renovation and room lighting is something we take very seriously and constantly experiment with the latest technology for best easy usage.

We attended a large family wedding at Port Macquarie and many of the family stayed at the El Paso Motor Inn. The owners were very friendly and accommodating, as we arrived early and were able to book in straight away. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the included breakfast was great value. The El Paso is perfectly situated within... More

Thank you for your review, and great to hear you received an early check in for the wedding. Our location is a major reason many guests book to stay at the Iconic El Paso Motor Inn and then there are other added benefits, some of which you have mentioned and many many more. We look forward to seeing you again... More

We discovered this motel back in 2008, we enjoyed our stay and so when passing through we would break our trip at the El Paso. Over the years they have refurbished the motel and it is looking very nice. We like the area because there are plenty of eating places and sights to see. The rooms are clean and the... More

We've stayed in Port Macquarie before but always a little further away from the centre. This was a great find as motel-style accommodation with lots of nearby options for food. Continental breakfast included; a great deal. They appear to have done some renovations and these are still ongoing, but it didn't disturb or inconvenience us. They have wi-fi but we... More
