"Great Mexican restaurant nearby"
Recently remodeled. Owners/managers very helpful in everyway. This is a "must" hotel for budget minded bikers after a long and hot day in Utah.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good place to stay off of I-40"
This is the second time we have stayed here. The owners are friendly and helpful. They have upgraded and improved a lot of things at the motel since our last stay. The beds are comfortable and the sheets and towels were in good condition. The bathrooms are small in a European way if you know what I mean. Everything is very clean and tidy. The AC is […] noisy. DirecTV on a large flat screen TV. The breakfast was standard motel fare - waffles, cereal, juice, muffins, toast, etc. Okay, but not outstanding. The pool looked clean. The boys playing in it said the water was cold but nice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
great time, nice folksGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was an older motel which had recently been remodeled. I picked it because of the location but was surprised when I saw how nice the rooms were. It was a great value for the money.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"An oldie but a goodie"
This motel was a pleasure to stay at. It is old, a throw-back to the 50's, but as clean and well kept as one could ever wish for. The owners obviously take pride in their property and made our stay hold only good memories. Thank you for showing that quality attention to your operation has not been forgotten!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old fashioned motel"
Not bad for an old motel. It's been updated, but the bathroom is tiny, and the AC is too far from the bedroom to be very effective on really hot days. The free WiFi was next to unusable, felt like old dial-up speeds.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Better than expected"
We stayed here when visiting CMU which is just over a mile away. Though this has the funky look of an old motel, the lobby area and breakfast were far better than I expected and the property is well maintained and clean. Nice owners, nice little pool, decent shower and towels. This isn't the Ritz Carlton, but for the price, it's very adequate. Also, […] the AC works great and there's a little fridge and coffee maker in each room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Really close to the fair grounds"
Relaxing and everything you need in a room. When we got there the staff where there to help cool down the room and get things comfortable for us allGenuine Expedia guest review
OK place to stay, not a particularly good neighborhood but close to Lincoln Park. Good pool. Noisy air conditioner. Very helpful lady running the motel. The motel is showing signs of age but all in all good value.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Pleasantly surprised how great this was!"
We needed somewhere to stay before getting to our final destination for a family trip. This was exactly where we needed to be and the reviews we read were good, so we went for it. Glad we did. We would stay again if in the areaGenuine Expedia guest review

I would also like to thank the young lady who assisted me with my reservations . […] She was very nice . You have excellent staff . Thank you. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved it! So close to CMU! Older hotel but so fun! VERY ACCOMODATING front desk. We needed to have breakfast at 6:00 am and all three days we were there it was out and ready!! We are staying again in July! Will make sure that we stay here every year :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was clean, easy to find, parking good, the best part was the TV with all the cable channels great. Will stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent time. very clean and pleasant. This is enough.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Would definitely stay again"
El Palomino is an old school motel. That said, it is exemplary, nothing fancy; the room was clean and serviceable--not updated or generically "modern", the pool was lovely, the parking place was next to the door, the desk clerk was friendly and clearly not running through a script from corporate headquarters. The rating for surrounding area doesn't […] really apply to Grand Junction, a spread out town with some nice urban renewal efforts underway, but mostly strip shopping centers. We had best breakfast ever at Pufferbelly Cafe, although motel offered a nice smelling spread as well. Finally, Grand Junction is surrounded by distant red rock mesas, I was surprised by just how lovely the area is, I hope to return, stay at El Palomino and spend more than two hours at the Colorado Monument.

"Just what we needed"
This hotel is a clean, affordable choice for those who want a good "home base" from which to enjoy the many outdoor activities around Grand Junction. We stayed for 2 days and drove to Moab on one day (less than 2 hours away) and CO. Nat'l Monument the next. Continental breakfast was fairly standard, but had enough choices for everyone. The bed was comfy […] - better than some beds I've slept on for double the price. It was nice to have a fridge and microwave. I have 2 minor complaints: (1)The bathroom did not have a towel rack, so wet towels had to hang over the curtain rod; and (2) The window only had vertical blinds (no curtains) which let in too much light from the lamp outside the door, which could not be turned off. Overall, though, it was a pleasant stay and we would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Older hotel with updates"
The staff was very helpful and accommodating. It's an older hotel and the bathroom was very small. We appreciated the refrigerator and the continental breakfast was more than we expected. There were hard boiled eggs, waffles, yogurt, cereal, etc.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect for hospital patients"
It was clean and nice! We appreciated staying there. I had surgery at the Veterans hospital and they wee very supportive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very much enjoyed our stay. Pleasant staff. Excellent continental breakfast choices.Genuine Expedia guest review
Our room was immaculate, and the bathroom was recently renovated, giving it a very fresh feel. The pool looked very inviting, but unfortunately it was not quite warm enough when we were there to swim. For such a small place, the complementary breakfast was surprisingly complete and of good quality. I would absolutely stay here again. For the price, […] you cannot beat the value.

"Great value for a basic, very clean motel room"
While this place is not even remotely fancy, it was quiet, comfortable and VERY CLEAN. The room was a little crowded, but the beds were comfy. Flat screen TV, coffee maker, mini fridge and free WIFI. The breakfast featured all the basics: cereal, fresh fruit, yogurt, bread, bagels, juice, great coffee, pre-packaged pastries. Owners were friendly and […] helped a great deal when there was a problem with reservations. GREAT VALUE for the price paid. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
great staff, awesome stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I found the hotel on the trip advisor web sight with a very recent review. It was rated second, above a lot of the name brands. I took a chance and found it to be one of the most comfortable, couch and chair to watch tv from,good mattress and very clean bathroom with drains that actually drained no matter how much water you used. The owners are extremely […] helpful and the breakfast had a good variety of selections from fruit to waffles to cereal and muffins. All at a very reasonable price. Would return in a flash.

"Quieter than you'd think. Super clean. Great val"
I'm a frequent business traveler and ended-up at El Palomino on a personal trip when nothing else was available. Couldn't have been happier. Just what we'd hoped... except quieter.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I booked this hotel for three nights after reading the ratings on this site. I was not disappointed. The owners have done a tremendous job of putting this 50's-60's style motel into good condition. The beds are comfortable and the rooms were spotless. All appliances (frig, microwave, hair dryer, air conditioner, coffee maker, T.V.) were in good working […] order. They have Wi'Fi. We booked three rooms and our friends who were with us were also very happy with this motel. It was a good value and the owners were very helpful, and friendly. I highly recommend this motel if what you need is a clean room, and a good night sleep Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very nice economical motel."
The couple who operate this motel are exceptionally friendly. The motel is very clean and quiet. A great place to rest and relax. It doesn't have all the fancy extra but for the money it is a real bargin and fits the bill if you are looking for a clean, comfortable place to stay.The room is equipped with a fridg., microwave and coffee pot. The breakfast […] was good and always ready on time. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very clean and quiet motel. Continental breakfast was excellent. Owners are on site and very helpful and friendly. Inexpensive and a good value for what we paid.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok for a night"
The pool appears to be closed for an extended time. The smell of asphalt is really strong. While clean, we were given 2 towels for 3 adults and less than 1/4 of a roll of toilet paper without leaving an extra roll. The beds are pretty soft. The breakfast offered in the morning was excellent.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great value for money."
Thisw is an older, traditional motel or motor court. It has been updated somewhat and the couple that run it are taking great steps to make it a super place. Rooms are compact. Flat scren mounted high so as not to take up table/counter space. Plumbing and bath fixtures good and hot water is fast, but no towel racks or shelves in the bath. Microwave, […] fridge and coffeemaker in closet area, but not enough outlets to plug all in at once. Similar problem for electronics in area of desk. Need to fit 6-outlet surge supressor perhaps to underside of desk. All in all, good value for money but still needsw some work. Had a comfortable stay. Woman running the place was very helpful in finding a dinner restaurant. Very friendly and helpful staff, room very clean. Quiet at night. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A motel with genuine comfort."
The location is a motel-row type of area but this motel was pleasant especially for the price. The morning breakfast was nice and the coffee was good.Genuine Expedia guest review
The people who run the hotel were very friendly and accomodating but this is a very cheap hotel. The room was clean and updated. I would not stay here again. Thought we'd be getting more after seeing reviews. Area was scary, noisy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good price for a nice hotel"
The room was very clean and well kept. Good water pressure, owners were very friendly, and an excellent price for the niceness of the hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Low Price Nice Owner not very clean or comfortable"
The owners were very sweet, but I'm not sure why this hotel has such high reviews. Yes, it's very cheap, but my room was not very clean & it was very drafty and the heating is not the best. I was almost worried I was going to catch a cold from breathing in the drafty air all night. Also, the hotel room doors exit to the parking lot, which isn't the […] safest for women travel alone. There was room to park my car & trailer, which was a plus. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Liked this inexpensive hotel"
Good clean and inexpensive !!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice and friendly front desk staff. Room was comfortable but heater did not keep room at constant temperature. Also, minimal outlets on walls. Overall, a nice stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I've been seeing the reviews on this hotel for a couple of years. We use Grand Junction as a frequent stopover between Denver and Utah destinations. Compared to other inexpensive hotels in the area (Quality, EconoLodge, etc.) I would probably use this one - it has the convenience of drive-up to the room - and it is better kept with better service. However, […] I wouldn't recommend it to my parents who are Hampton Inn folks. Breakfast wasn't served until 7am on Saturday morning (we left at 6:30) and for Grand Junction the surrounding neighborhood is congested and needs some attention.

"Great stay, great price"
We wanted a clean, comfortable, and affordable place for a few nights. We found just what we were looking for in El Palomino Motel. Freindly owner, very clean room and grounds, comfortable bed, and nice and quite all night even though it is on a main road through town. We would definetly come here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cute retro motel"
A nice quaint little motel, the room was clean and neat as a pin. The only negative I have to say is the heating unit would blow out hot air and then cold air so it was difficult to regulate the temperature.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very Nice Motel"
Nice, clean, small old style road side hotel. Rooms are clean and well maintained, continental breakfast included. Nice staff and in a nice central location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"cozy stay with friendly staff"
It was great! The temp was -2 when we arrived in Grand Junction but the room was heated to 70+ which was very nice. The staff was friendly and went out of their way to make sure our stay was confortable. The breakfast had variety and everything we ate was fresh and the coffee was really good. I am going to seek out small non-corporate hotels like this […] one in the future. If I ever drive through Grand Junction again I will be sure to stay here! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Clean and comfortable"
I just needed a place to stay one night while passing through Grand Junction and this place fit the bill perfectly. Great rate and very clean, quiet, with a comfortable bed.
