“Good location and friend receiption”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

This motor is located in the centre of city, very convenience for shoppers and five minutes walk to the beach. The room is just average. Swimming poor looks good on picture. Strongly recommend for families with reasonable price.

This seems a fair comment for our older rooms which are due for renovation later this year.

The El Paso is in an excellent location in the heart of Port Macquarie, opposite the GlassHouse. We stayed in one of the recently renovated rooms. The large room was well equipped with fridge, TV, IPOD dock & wall USB plugs. Our room had parking right at the front door.

The hotel seems pretty dated but is clean and tidy. No lifts or ramps so if your on the first floor you have to drag luggage up the stairs, which was difficult.
Good value, only spent one night here. Parking available. Really good location, close to shops, bars, the marina and resturants.

Thank you for your constructive review jess2605. I agree our Port Rooms are "dated". We plan to finish the renovations to the Hastings Rooms in April next year, which includes installation of a lift, then move on to updating the Port and Macquarie rooms.

Neat, tidy and very clean. Good value for money, breakfast included. Very quiet for Saturday night. Room a bit dated but who cares at such a good price. Comfortable bed, kitchenette with microwave etc.
One lady staff member a bit rude. Other staff were lovely. As a young couple we would stay again.

Thank you for your constructive feedback Rinni78. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. If any of my staff appear a bit rude in future, please ask to see the manager. Even if I'm not available, I guarantee it will result in a rapid change in attitude.

The hotel is in a perfect location. The rooms are lovely and clean, the service was great and easy walking distance to many restuarants. The owner was very helpful and the attached restaurant serves excellent meals.

Thank you for your feedback Marg D. Like most motels we cannot offer secure parking, but 22 rooms have parking right outside the rooms, and most other guests can park in the basement which is locked from the street at one end each night. We have 24 hour camera security and have had no car security issues in the last three years. Please let us know your parking concerns on your next visit and we will try to address them.
