"A MUST in Grand Junction"
Americana at its best. Adorable old-fashioned motel. Room was clean as a whistle and oh so comfortable! The pool was quite refreshing. The host was charming. And the Mexican restaurant a block away for dinner is outstanding.

"Great value!"
Rooms are clean and tidy. Bedding is more updated than photos show. Air conditioner works well and showers have hot water. Not luxurious, but a great value for the money. The continental breakfast wa plentiful and coffee decent. The space for the breakfast is small, but the owner was very attentive to cleaning tables and shuffling chairs to accommodate everyone.

"Great price for newly renovated 50's motel"
We were a little nervous when we drove in and saw it was a 50's motel. However it was newly retiled, carpeted, with new windows and air conditioner, and flat screened TV. The beds were fine. It's not fancy or big but a great deal. We liked that it was close to some authentic Mexican restuarants and shopping. It's central so everywhere we went was easy. The owners are very nice and helpful. The continental breakfast was great as was the coffee. We were glad we picked it.

"Well kept older hotel a great bargain."
This older, sort of nostalgic hotel was well kept and well managed. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The price was a bargain, the parking plentiful, and the location was near dining and gas stations. Would definitely pit stop here again.

Reasonable. Comfortable. Convenient. Clean. Friendly. Everything you look for while you're on the road! Close to all manner of restaurants and activities. Close to medical help if needed. The most comfortable bed we've ever slept in away from home.

"Fun stay at retro motel!"
No frills - just a bed (although having a king-size bed for one person was a bit overkill), TV, did have a refrigerator and m/w, plus coffee pot. Small room, super clean and orderly. Small bathroom but worked fine for me. The check-in person (one of the owners) was pleasant and efficient. I did not stay for breakfast so can't rate that. Overall, an older motel that has been spruced up nicely - no complaints from me!

"Nice retro feel"
The service was top-notch at this older property. The retro feel has its positives and negatives. The positives are a low price and nostalgic feel. The negatives include worn towels and a tired-looking neighborhood. The beds were a bit soft. The breakfast area was on the tight side, but the available items included bagels, toast, make-your-own waffles, cereal and yogurt (more than enough in quality and quantity to get you going in the morning). The coffee was good, too. I would stay there again.

The manager was very nice. She was also helpful with all the questions we had about Grand Junction and related needs. The holtel was clean and comfortable. I only spent about 2 hours in it due to working long hours but, I would probably stay there again for the same purposes. I would not bring the family.

Stayed here on a quick business trip. Just need a clean room with easy access to I70 and downtown. Perfect - got exactly this. Nice, helpful staff and quick, easy check-in/out. Room was really clean. May have been recently updated. Nothing was worn or abused. Wireless worked fine. Bed a little stiff. A great value.

"Clean, modest accommodations at a great price"
After working in the Hotel business for 15 years, I usually expect even the nicest rooms to have little problems. At the El Palomino, I kept looking for any little thing; no cracked tiles in the bathroom, all fixtures worked well, were easy to control, etc., and the TV was surprisingly modern and large. I took a chance on a non-chain motel and was pleasantly surprised.

"Great price & Cozy"
We decided to stay here because of the great price and the hotel's close proximity to Fruita (we were out there for a mountain biking trip). Palomino is just down the street from the college and its not a far ride to the interstate. The staff were very friendly and the rooms clean and cozy. It looked like they were renovating the pool as well, so we're excited to see it when it reopens later this year!

"Simple, Adequate Accommodations on the cheap"
We got in late (around midnight) after a pretty stressful drive, and the owner woke up to check us in. We only stayed a night and left in morning the next day. The small breakfast was mostly put away, but the owner's wife offered to give us some bagels. The room was simple, but adequate for our basic needs.

"Very nice Mom and Pop Motel"
This is a very nice and clean small motel. The rooms were small but furnished nicely. Comfortable bed, nice new type TV., desk, wifi service, couch, chair, tub, shower and AC/Heater. It was quiet and very close to the University. The owner was so friendly and willing to please. Didn't have lots of shelves in the bathroom so I ask if she had a little table that she could put in there(as there was room) and she was so willing to comply. I would stay there again and encourage others to do the same.

"Close to Colorado-Mesa University"
This is an older, motor-court type motel. The room was a little small but not ridiculously so. The good things here far out weigh the size of the room. Everything was very clean ( the rooms have been remodeled including the bathrooms). The lady at the desk ( Evana ) was wonderful. Very friendly and helpful. The breakfast area is not large but the waffles were killer and there was a very nice selection of bagels, muffins, cereals, juices, oatmeal, etc. , AND, the coffer was very good. At this price, I would stay here anytime I come to visit my son at college.

The room had a cozy bed, remodeled bathroom and big TV with wireless; all i need to get some work done and relax. Quite, clean and nice staff. I also needed a bath towel to take with me after i checked out, went to the front desk to purchace one...they gave it to me, no charge. Great folks.

"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.

"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.

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!!
