We have stayed at this Motor Inn many times over the years. It has recently been renovated and they have done a great job. The room was spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable. The fixtures including the television are all new. We found the Wi-Fi to be excellent. The included breakfast was exactly what we wanted for breakfast, cereal,... More

We always look for a location close to the town centre & this suited us very well being walking distance to restaurants, shops, waterfront & bars. Reception was very friendly, rooms large & clean, bed very comfortable. There are coffee making facilities & small fridge. We were upgraded free to a king bed & the bathroom was enormous ..... suited... More

Comfortable beds with Freshly renovated rooms and bathrooms. Centrally located in town, a short walk to the town centre and local cafes, or a short stroll along the rock wall to Town beach. The hotel's Cafe was reasonably priced with good quality food. I will definitely stay here again.

We had the pleasure of spending the weekend in a well laid out upgraded room. The pool looked great, just winter so we didn't try swing. Easy access 2 minutes walk to town & the water. Even included a breakfast with a great choice of cereal - FREE. (You don't see that anymore). The new Cafe has great food &... More

I stayed here overnight for a business trip and enjoyed my stay. Very short walking distance to the main street with all restaurants and shopping centers. Clean and good showers, bed and TV. Underground parking and lift was a nice touch.

Very good stay, nice room with new amenities, just recently renovated, so everything looks new. Very good service!! We arrived after the reception was closed but they arranged something so that we could get to the room eventhough the reception was closed, which was much appreciated. Overall good stay, recommend if you are staying in for the night.

My partner and I were on our way back from Queensland to NSW and decided to stopover in Port Macquarie. Unfortunately the Ramada could not accommodate our landcruiser due to height restrictions so a motor inn was the best option as we needed secure parking. Outwardly El Paso did the trick however we were very disappointed in the room. The... More

Usually stays at more expensive places in Port but we were happy with this cheaper option. Centrally located. Nice lady in reception. Upstairs room compact with comfy bed. Ferocious shower. Room met all our needs. Bit of street noise but no real problem. Continental brekky thrown in for $145. Would stay again
