Great for a nights stop over. comfortable beds, great shower and great location. Would stay here again. Hotel staff was friendly on arrival and made the stay comfortable and even have me an waster egg on the foyer for the occasion!

El Paso is good value, very well located (walk 100m along the riverfront to most of the restaurants) and recently renovated. Also quiet with a reasonable breakfast and friendly breakfast staff. Recommended.

We stayed at the El Paso Motor Inn on our way to the Gold Coast. The rooms were very clean and comfortable! The staff were friendly and helpful! We will definitely stay here again! Great location with great cafes and restaurants very close by!

I organised a car club event and used the El Paso Motor In for our 50 participants. As we expected (we have used the El Paso previously for the same event) everyone thoroughly enjoyed their stay. All the staff were more than accommodating and helpful with any requests. The El Café put on a lovely hot breakfast for us all. The motel is very centrally located to amenities and is services by the courtesy buses of the local clubs. Highly recommend you to stay at the El Paso.

I love staying at this hotel on the way to Byron Bay from Sydney and back again. It’s a great spot to rest and recover at a convenient half way point. One of the great features of this hotel is the free breakfast. The Customer Service is friendly, offering fresh milk for tea and coffee. (They even give you free biscuits to eat with your tea!) The room service is handy however they do not offer many vegetarian options for dinner and there is no room service on a Sunday. The location is close to many great restaurants. It is a quiet and restful hotel. They also have a lift which is convenient if you do not want to carry your bags upstairs.

We arrived a bit early before the check in time. The staff was very accommodating and allowed us to check in . The location is really good too, right in the center of Port Macquarie. The room was clean and comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to spend a night or longer.

Have tried many places in Port Macquarie, but this is my go to place. Excellent rooms, great beds, very clean and the staff are absolutely wonderful. Food for room service is good, although fairly limited menu.

Great place staff are fantastic, clean comfortable beds . Comes with breakfast, close to everything. I always stay there when travelling for work .price is reasonable . Would recommend this place for sure.

I was in Port for business and El Paso offered the perfectly located and quiet place to park and rest for the night. Nicely renovated rooms and fresh bathroom. Huge TV although I didn’t have the opportunity to watch. Thank goodness my room was prepaid as I left before 7-00 and there was nowhere to leave the room key on checkout. I had to drop the key into a staff member from the on site cafe that I happened to see arrive otherwise I would not have known what to do. Thee appears to be no early check out box to place room keys. Otherwise a nice stay.

My husband and I were doing a little road trip home from Tamworth and decided to stay at Port Macquarie for a couple of days. Motel had been pre booked for our trip. When we arrived we noticed it was in a good spot. Welcomed warmly at reception, checking in was quick. We had a nice room with a pool view. Very nicely appointed and just up from cafe where we would have breakfast (which was included in tariff). Room was comfortable, with good air con and bathroom was good. Room service was available for breakfast/dinner at good prices. We used the pool for a swim on a very warm day, it was great. It has a nice area for a bbq. Cafe for breakfast was really nice with a water view from some tables. We found the cafe staff excellent. Good continental breakfast was included in the tariff, however, you could order cooked items from the cafe. We just had the continental breakfast, which was very good. I loved your toaster! Other guests had ordered food cooked to order and it looked really nice with generous serves. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again. Thank you.
