We had asked for a twin room, got a spacious, clean room with a double and a single bed, roomy bathroom and all amenities. We were very satisfied with the room and happy we had chosen this motel. The price was reasonable and location close to beach and centre of town ideal, in easy walking distance. Only criticisms are the limited internet access and dim reading lights.

Room Tip: Motel is on two floors, so request ground floor to avoid steps. Not good for wheelchairs!

I was booked into this hotel somewhat against my will. I arrived with low expectations, based on previous stays. The room was musty at first, but once aired out I found it to be a comfortable and quiet night. No frills or bells and whistles, but if it's cheap then it's not too bad.

We were on our way from Sydney to Brisbane and our 3-year-old was tired so we had a stopover here. Big mistake!! The room smelled funny and very overpowering. Then we found cockroaches in our room. Big, black ones!! And since it was already 9 pm or so, we had no other choice but to stay on. Something in the room also bit my son on his left arm. Probably bed bugs.
What's worse than all these was the rudeness of the owner's wife. Yes, we should have read all reviews before choosing this place to stay.

Motel room was clean, spacious and comfortable. There were tea/coffee facilities but no restaurant or breakfast facilities.

The sign at the front of reception advertising WiFi and Foxtel is wrong. Neither facilities are available and when asked about it after checkin a look of confusion was the response with a stuttered reply they were offline. It was clear neither facility was available.

The price was $95 a disappointment given the lack of advertised facilities. We chose the motel based on WiFi and Foxtel being available.

Room Tip: Any room would be adequate but query WiFi and Foxtel if that is required before checkin

On the weekend of the 19th/20th March having trouble finding suitable accommodation in Port Macquarie to attend a funeral. Jimmy Barnes's fans had booked almost all of PM. Suddenly found the Excelsior Motor Inn, close to CBD, very reasonably priced and one room left so we took it.

Well we are converts. If you want a comfortable bed, close to CBD (without traffic noise) good sized room all at a reasonable price well Excelsior is the one. After we'd booked I read the Trip Advisor reviews and had no great expectations but on arrival we were pleasantly surprised. Smiling manager, we did park on the street as our car is a little large, no problem. Brought a toaster with us so we didn't bother the manager. TV is a little small but overall for the price we had a comfortable bed for the night for a bargain PM price, we will be back again.

It was a cheap hotel so I was not expecting much. However it was very smelly - not sure if it was mold or cigarette smoke. Seemed the room had not been aired out very much. Their car park was extremely tight. I am surprised the council allow them to get away with it as it becomes rather full and dangerous. Close to some local cafes. Best of all, it was cheap. Just BYO air freshener.

Room Tip: Ask for one that has been aired out recently.

Very basic right down to the air conditioning which barely cooled the room.

Wouldn't recommend the only plus is it's close to the CBD.

Rooms are dated and in need of a refurbishment.

Parking is cramped at best
