El Paso Motor Inn

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed two nights. Nor the milk, in the old marked fridge, or the coffee, sugar or biscuits were replaced during our stay. The renovated bathroom floods when you shower, no door. Old fashioned lock with the button to push in to lock. The motel is being renovated which we would have expected to be advised at the time of booking over the phone not by being woken up by the drilling and hammering. For the $165 per night we should have been advised to make an educated choice to stay at El Paso or not. Did not enjoy breakfasts as the room was very cold and for some reason the air conditioners were turned off. Why not make your visitors warm and cozy? The room was clean with a comfortable bed. The location is great but it’s not a 4* accomodation, more like 3*.

Stayed here for the Easter break. Was a lovely hotel and in the centre of Port. Rooms were small but very comfortable. The staff were lovely and the free breakfast was a bonus. Walking distance to everything.

Great location, centre of the CBD. Room was clean and tidy with all the standard inclusions that you would expect. Forget the WIFI, our room did not allow a service that was functional, very poor. Staff are friendly and accommodating. The continental breakfast was very nice and you could add large well presented hot dishes at a very reasonable price. Effortless check in and out. I will be going back. Thank you. Hotel, location and sleep 4/5 star out of 5... couldn't get the ratings to work.

Very nice place to stay. Very close to the city by walk to city centre and easy walk around the river front. The staff are very helpful and the breakfast included was a great reason to stay and have free laundry centre is great for family's

I think El Paso offers good value. It’s not super-dooper expensive and it’s smack bang in the middle of town so it’s an easy stroll to restaurants or even a walk down to the breakwall or beach. Decor is updated and a nice big TV. My biggest criticism is the extra single bed in the room makes it a bit pokey and a bit of a squeeze getting into the bathroom as the bifold doors open out to the room right next to the bed. I smacked into the doors when going to take a leak in the middle of the night. Anyway it’s no biggie and I’d be happy to stay at El Paso again.

This is a really great place to stay in Port Macquarie. Very well located to enjoy the best the harbour and the CBD. Noise is not an issue ensuring a restful night. The rooms are very comfortable and spacious and the room service evening meals are of a high standard and generous in portion size. Staff are very attentive and we very much enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended.

Another show to see in Port and of course we booked into El Paso for the night. Nothing has really changed since our last stay - a nice clean room, comfortable bed, friendly front office service and good value! An adequate breakfast (for us at least!) is included and we look forward to our next visit to Port!

Convenient, clean & comfortable - felt quite at home & would have liked to have stayed longer if time permitted. A fridge issue was resolved quickly & happily ..... thank you to the two gentlemen on duty that evening. Fantastic location right in Port.

A friendly welcome for a welcome break. A clean comfortable room complemented with warm firm beds and crisp linen. A generous bar fridge added to the experience, but complementary breakfast really set us up for the day.

From our warm welcome to the farewell, it was just what we needed. Great accommodation, and so close to the shops and dining out whether it's just to a cafe, restaurant or the local pubs, an easy walk away. Our light breakfast which was included was great, with the option to have something more if you required - we did have the omelette on our last morning which was delicious! Great value and friendly service. Also only having had knee surgery 2 months ago it was a bonus having the lift if I was too tired to use the stairs.
