"Clean but small"
This is an older motel that has had a lot of money put into it for a remodel, but they didn't make the rooms bigger. The room was so small my wife and I couldn't pass between the bed and the T.V. at the same time. You had to twist around in the bathroom to get the door closed. For one person just looking for a clean place to spend the night, it would […] be o.k. But don't get the king bed. It sags in the middle. Both people tend to roll towards the middle. The management obviously cares about this place by the way they maintain it, but the rooms are too small. I would recommend tearing down some interior walls and making one room out of two.

"Great room for the price"
Just the type of room I want...clean, quiet, and inexpensive. It's a retro 50's style motel. The operators are friendly and attentive. The breakfast space is a little cramped, but the quality was good. I would recommend it and would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just an overnight in Grand Junction."
We picked El Palomino because it ranked very high on Trip Advisor. We were a little leery because the hotel looks like a 1950s vintage motel. However, when we got there, we were welcomed by the hostess and went to our room. The room looked like it had been recently redone and was very nice and clean. We were impressed and very satisfied with the room. […] The hotel may not look very promising from the outside, but it is well worth it to stay here. We had a wonderful waffle for breakfast and the orange juice was better than average. I spoke with the hostess in the morning--mentioning the Trip Advisor rating--and she said, yeah, but it has dropped recently. I think it is now ranked 5th instead of 2nd for Grand Junction. I would certainly stay there again and I would rank it above many of the more modern hotels that I have stayed in. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great affordable find"
I would stay again. Convenient to downtown GJ. Clean. Affordable. Great little motel!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Adequate, but nothing special. Did not have a clock radio or facial tissues. Continental breakfast was OK, but probably less than average.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice for one night"
We stayed for one night as we traveled from Colorado to Utah on vacation. It is a little off the expressway, but the price is right and it is very clean and comfortable. They also serve a free breakfast. The people that own it are very nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Middle of the desert (It seemed)"
A very nice experience, although it was short. The manager picked us up at the Amtrak station upon our call. The motel is comfortable but not elaborate.Genuine Expedia guest review
We were pleasantly surprised. It was a very clean, tidy room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old style motel"
Loved this place. It is a step back in time to the way motels used to be. It has been remodeled, but kept the old school charm. I would definitely stay again if I'm in the area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Motel. Will stay again"
Very nice hotel for the price. I will stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Older motel but very clean, well-kept and convenient to Colorado National Monument and wine vineyards.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very clean and comfortable"
The outside appearance shows an older style motel but it obviously has been renovated. Room and bathroom were small overall but very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. One of the best on our trip.Genuine Expedia guest review
Like a step back into the 50's! A well-maintained retro "jem". Not a big motel, but a pleasant check-in, nice pool, clean & comfortable room and a good breakfast before you leave. Good value for the money.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Move in day for granddaughter at Mesa."
Nicely remodeled for an older motel. Clean. Close to campus. Very nice and hospitable management. Great rate.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was clean and comfortable. The A/C had to work hard to cool off the room, but was OK. Everything appeared to be well kept. I would definitely return and recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Looking at the price to quality ratio this motel is a real gem and unbeatable in Grand Junction. Family owned and with friendly faces, clean rooms with fridge and microwave and lots of flexibility, we had a good time especially since breakfast time was moved to an earlier time to accommodate our athlete. How nice!! The location is perfect if visiting […] the University. We will always stay here when visiting Grand Junction in the future. Thank you for everything!!

"Good value for the money"
El Palmino was a perfect one night stopover on our way through Colorado. Rooms were clean, breakfast good and staff friendly. Top Dining and shopping were close by, and our kids loved the pool.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Cleanliness is always our top priority and this motel certainly fulfilled our wishes. The staff were helpful, courteous and happy. The rates fit into our budget. The breakfast was really good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Motel.... a real good choice ^^"
Easy to find, very clean, nice swimming in front of the rooms....Genuine Expedia guest review
It is a very clean hotel, nice staff and good continental breakfast, would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lots of room"
The hotel room was in good repair and clean. Our window unit worked great and there was a continental breakfast available. The breakfast included waffles, cereal, bagels, muffins, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, milk, orange juice, coffee and much more. I liked that each room has a good size kitchenette with a small refrigerator, this really saves us money […] allowing us to bring our own drinks. There is also a small ice machine that we used to add ice to our small ice chest for the road. Although we only stayed one night it was a nice place with wonderful staff.

"Clean, comfortable, accommodating, great price"
I booked the El Palomino for two nights in July. The night I was to arrive, I realized I was going to be arriving late. I called and the woman working was extremely helpful and friendly. When I did arrive, she was equally as friendly. The room was comfortable and clean. Fantastic for the price. I slept well and the shower had plenty of pressure. The […] in room refrigerator came in handy. My only negative experience was checking out. The young man behind the counter wasn't friendly or helpful in any way. The breakfast was novel in that there was a make your own waffle area. That was a nice thing on Sunday morning. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"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

"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
My stay at your hotel was a very nice place and I will travel again next year at the same time and my husband and I will plan to stay at your hotel I will also recommend to my family members who also will be traveling with us to stay at your hotel .thank you very much .

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"

"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

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
