We stayed at the El Paso for 2 nights recently and we were met with one of the friendliest reception ladies I have ever come across. She was delightful, friendly and helpful. Our room was cozy and comfortable. It was a typical hotel room, nothing fancy, but it was clean and neat and tidy. The location of the El Paso... More

The renovations are really good, fantastic location and would definitely stay there again. All staff were friendly and we felt welcome. We really liked breakfast included in the room price. Would like there to be a DVD payer in the room for any rainy days. The new lift was appreciated.

First time we've stayed here (stayed many other places in Port)..had an unrenovated room but still was very comfortable. Bathroom was immaculately clean (had just stayed in a YHA in Sydney so we really appreciated the cleanliness) and beds great. Included breakfast was plenty..just cereal and toast basically. Next door is Casualities Espresso. I went there every morning and by... More

This motel is ideally located in the heart of Port Macquarie, across the road from the river walk and next to good restaurants and hotels. Rooms have or are being renovated and are clean and comfortable. A little noisy from car park and adjoining rooms but you expect that.
