Stayed with the kids for 3 nights. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room quite spacious even with a portable bed for one child. Can't get a much better location, you can walk to restaurant's, cafés, shops and breakwall or beach.

The accommodation is very comfortable and clean. We had finished a week long trek through parts of Queensland starting in Toowoomba to Port Macquarie via Wee Waa and Armidale, mostly off the main roads. The El Paso is very close to shopping centres and walking paths along the river. The downfall is parking can be very cosy when busy.

Pros: location is excellent. Parking adequate. Rooms are clean but a bit small. Water pressure was amazing. Appreciate the wall sockets that have USB plug-in ports to charge devices via USB cable. Cons: rooms are a bit noisy, due to proximity of the parking (pretty much 3-4 feet away from your door). Great place anyway, for the money, and if... More

We've stayed here a few times and its is always a good experience. The re-furbed rooms are spacious with all the mod cons. We were upgraded to a spa room and it is possibly the best hotel spa we've ever had. HUGE. The brekkie is basic but also included in the price. Fantastic value, welcoming staff and perfectly located. We'll... More

Great location just across from the beach and a quick 5 minute walk to the shopping mall. Room was very clean and staff were very friendly. We had some nice meals in the hotel restaurant. Would highly recommend and stay there again.

The El Paso is in a great location, right in the middle of town, facing the main street so close to restaurants and with the river at the back. It had obviously been renovated, in fact I think there was work going on in other rooms. But my room had been redone, with a nice bathroom and tasteful decorations in... More

We stayed at the El Paso for a night and whilst it was clean and tidy...it was very basic (no cutlery in room). The continental breakfast that is included was not that great. Positives are that it is in a great location. Walking distance to the water and reataurants.

Hi Carly M, Thank you for your review. I am happy to hear that you found the room clean and tidy and you enjoyed our central location. In terms of the room not having cutlery, we do not advertise the particular room you stayed in (Hastings Deluxe) to have cutlery e.t.c. Although if you needed those services you could of... More

What a fabulous location - easy walking distance to have a look around the main street, and yet very quiet. Our room was beautifully presented and the beds were just bliss to fall into after a tiring day. Would we stay again? You bet.

This hotel was in a good location in the main street. I had dinner in the hotel resturant which was a bit scary as I was the only one there however I was greatly surprised at the quality of the meal.

As always the El Paso delivered another great stay in Port Macquarie. The room was spacious and clean and the facilities were everything I have come to expect when I stay there.
