Our second visit, El Paso is an easy comfortable stay, strolling distance to the shops in town.
Rooms are simple but clean, the continental breakfast is a welcome start to the day.
Not fancy, but a clean honest stay that's accommodating for travelers.

Stayed: August 2014
Thank QuothW

I had planned a tour here for a group of 30 in October 2014 and came in August to check. Location wonderful. Room good . Restaurant outstanding. It will be perfect for our group, but is also excellent for just two of us.

Great to hear you enjoyed the El Paso Motor Inn recently, and better still that it will suit your group booking for later in the year. It is our location that draws many guests to the Refurbished El Paso as does the Waterfront Restaurant, great chef and staff.
I look forward to seeing you again in October

Mum & I originally stayed for a few days for business/friends. The day we left, my car broke down & required the part to come from Melbourne. Thanks to the team at El Paso they accommodated us immediately & understood our circumstances. The rooms we had were very clean & all the staff there were welcoming, versed well locally, entertaining with conversation, made you feel at home, cheerful & helpful. I could not fault them at all. The only upset was the spiral stairs which mun didn't like but overall our experience was extremely excellent. If you want to be close to Port Central & you're on a budget, then this is the place to stay. All amenities in the rooms were faultless. The free WiFi was a bonus when planning the activities for the day but for those who haven't got access, there is a stack of information at reception.

Room Tip: Some rooms are still being renovated but they are nearly finished.

I'am sorry but also very happy. Sorry that you had trouble with your vehicle buy very Happy that you stayed with us and we ticked many of your boxes. We all try very hard at the El Paso to ensure that our guests enjoy their stay with us. As we are in the final stages of our renovation the spiral steps will be going and a lift will be installed, Yeh. Thank you for your kind comments.

I stayed in Room 205 upstairs with my teenage son for one night. Our room was right outside the spiral staircase which was a bit noisy with people coming up and down. Also made you a bit dizzy and was awkward to carry suitcases. Guessing they will be updating this as there is still refurbishing going on. This didn’t create a problem though as there was no building noise and no mess. The room still had the old windows which let in cold and noise which was a shame because the rest of room was beautiful. It had been nicely refurbished with great reading lights, comfy beds, 2 lounge chairs as well as two chairs at the desk, a big mirror, nice curtains, fridge and tea and coffee making all neat and tidy in a cupboard. There were mini bar items for purchase in the fridge plus free bikkies (always a winner for me). A kettle but no toaster. Free internet and USB charging sockets. Free continental breakfast was available in the restaurant. The bathroom was compact and the towels were a bit worn. Water pressure was a bit sad and combined with a water saver shower head meant that the shower was not great. Cost was $115 for a queen bed and a single for two people. Reception staff lovely, location great. Would definitely stay here again.

Thank you for your review on your rent stay with us and providing us with your feedback. It is correct that the spiral stair case will be replaced in the near future. It has been our priority to complete the rooms first. The windows you speak of have been purposely installed as the old rooms had no windows at all, and a lot of people like some fresh air. If you close the windows and pull the curtains it will stop the cold and noise from interfering with your comfort. Also we have installed new air conditioners in all rooms.No toasters are included in the rooms because your breakfast is free at The Waterfront Restaurant.Our room costs for the upgraded rooms are very reasonable and a great bargain. Our reception staff are very helpful and love to make our guests feel special. I also love the location, and are very happy that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again on your next visit to beautiful Port Macquarie....

I believe that location is everything and it is nice to be able to stroll to most amenities, and is another reason many guests choose the El Paso in Port Macquarie.
