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.

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.

We had an excellent stay at El Paso. The room was neat and clean. The service was great. The restaurant attached was excellent and most enjoyable. The meals both breakfast and dinner were of high quality, plenty to eat and the staff were pleasant and helpful. The owner of the Motel was also most helpful when asked for assistance.

Room Tip: Most rooms good value
