We picked this place based entirely on reviews from Trip Advisor. Had we just been passing through, we probably would not have stopped. The grounds need a little TLC. It is a clean place, the staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are comfortable and have an AC window unit that works well, but it louder than central air... More

This is a great hotel and probably the cleanest place I have ever stayed. Everything is immaculate and vey well maintained. The owners keep a very close eye on everything and have very strict rules that you have to follow, so it pays off in a good way with an excellent place to stay, but you kind of feel like... More

We stayed here because of TripAdvisor's #1 rating... and we were not disappointed. Our room was absolutely spotless - the bedding was new and quite luxurious and the pillow slips had been ironed - the furniture was in great shape, tasteful and very clean - and the bathroom was without so much as a smudge anywhere (including the tile surround)....

Really good place to stay. Very central to a few incredible sites. The motel was very clean with very comfortable beds and pillows. We also choose this motel from trip advisor and were pleased we did. Free breakfast was included and was adequate. We were concerned about the noise as we were close to a main road and there was...

Very nicely cared for rooms. Enjoyed relaxing around the pool after a day's drive. Comfortable sleeping, breakfast just right. Would stay again if in the area. Other guests were friendly. We were two ladies traveling together. We felt safe here. All the rooms face the pool and parking area.

I'm staying here while I mountain bike down the highway in Fruita, and even though I can afford a swankier place, I will return. For the price, this place can't be beat. Clean, friendly owners, free wifi, cheap sodas, free breakfast.

I choose this hotel because of trip advisor. When we first drove up, I was a little doubtful. It is the old 1950-60 type "drive up" motel but tripadvisor had not steered us wrong in the past so we signed in and went to the room. The room had a COMFY king bed, flat screen TV, plenty of pillows, coffee... More

I'm not normally a fan of motels, but the folks at El Palomino have done an excellent job of providing clean, comfortable and affordable lodgings. Our room was very nicely appointed and the bed was huge and very comfortable. Bathroom may not be the largest, but it's plenty big enough for shower and necessities. Owners are on-site and very friendly.... More

This little motel is perfect for the practical traveler. It's compact but has everything else going for it. It's clean, comfortable and reasonable. My wife and I couldn't have asked for anything more. Unlike most large hotels the wireless works perfectly. We give it two thumbs up.
