Recent guest reviews

Refurbished older Motel was a great stay with friendly staff, handy to everything just walk out the front door & there was shopping, resturants, old Court House & Museum were great telling the complete history of the town.

We were a little horrified when we pulled up to our room there was a tiny chair with cigarette butts all on the ground. On opening our door to our room it was alot nicer - clean and modern. Staff were lovely and friendly and having a little continental breaky included was great as the rooms have no facilities inside to eat meals. Our particular room was very noisy early every morning we would be woken by doors slamming and cars leaving, if we were to stay again would definitely choose a room with a nice view of the water as some people have spoken about in reviews or at least a balcony.

The El Paso is located across the road from the Glasshouse and Port Central. Was easy to get to, good parking, the room was nice and had a great view of the river and ocean. Being so close to the entertainment centre meant we could enjoy ourselves and not have to worry about anything. We will stay here again!

What a fantastic location in the centre of town, free parking and everything within walking distance. Nicely renovated and decorated rooms, small but they have everything you need. Massive TV! Free continental breakfast basic but nice. Staff were friendly and helpful. Great Value for money. I left my sons much loved toy behind and they posted it back to me quickly. Could not fault this place and would definitely stay again.

For an overnight stay close to centre of town, restaurants, shops this hotel was great value. Parking was free, a self-serve toast, cereal tea and coffee breakfast in the upstairs cafe is included in the room price. You can order a more substantial meal a la carte. The basic rooms are ground floor with car park view; rooms with more interesting views are available for more dollars. We wanted to walk to a good restaurant (plenty of choice), sleep overnight and drive on the following day so the basic room was fine. It was super clean, had comfortable bed, tea/coffee making, frig, good bathroom, efficient aircon, huge TV screen. Staff were very pleasant and helpful.

Park the car and enjoy all of town in walking distance. The staff were all fabulous and friendly. Our room was really spacious and comfy bed. The free brekky was all we needed but their cooked breakfasts looked amazing. We had a great stay El Paso, thanks!!!! We will be back again.

El Paso Motor Inn had lovely room layout with queen bed and single, with two confortable chairs to sit in to read or watch the TV. Shower pressure was great, just a problem with no door to the shower so floor got very wet, and you had to squeese around the door to go to the toilet. Staff were very helpful with information about the town. Was difficult having a rest in the afternoon with the renovations happening upstairs. Light breakfast included - would like to see yoghurt and fruit included, the cooked breakfast was lovely, as was the lady who did the cooking - thank you.

You never know what you are going to get when booking online. This time pleasantly surprised with great location, fantastic value for money, and they throw in breakfast for 2 people. Room is very clean, comfortable bed and the biggest tv I have ever seen in a motel. Lots of eating places around. We ate at a tiny Thai restaurant just up the road; excellent. Continental breakfast was all we needed; you can pay extra for hot breakfast.

I have stayed at this motel now on many occasions. The service has always been top notchh and the nicely refurbished rooms are very comfortable. I notice that they have installed a great cafe on the second floor which is very clean and open-planned. The motel is also in a great location. You can walk to the foreshore, Glasshouse and restaurants.

El Paso Motor Inn was recommended to us as we were looking for accommodation in Port Macquarie as we could Not stay with our daughter due to her bathroom and shower being replaced. Great Timing on our part. However, we were not disappointed due to our wonderful stay at the El Paso. Nice decor and very clean rooms. We slept in most mornings, due to the comfortable bed. Hot shower with great water pressure. The location of the El Paso is location plus. Walking distance to a choice of restaurants the Japanese being my favourite. Port Central shopping centre just adjacent. All the staff from reception to housekeeping were friendly and were happy to have a chat. On our last night we ordered room service for dinner, Chris was friendly and professional our dinner for 2 arrived very quickly and was delicious. Many thanks to team El Paso for your hospitality and kindness.
