This is by far the cleanest, nicest and most comfortable motel we have stayed at. The room was of comfortable size and very nicely furnished - couch, table and chair, armchair and an ottoman - all nice quality and clean. The bed wan unbelievably comfy - the best night sleep of any motel we've ever stayed at. The flat screen... More

Traveling across country we were just leaving the Arches in Utah and wanted a nice but fairly inexpensive place to stay! Found this place with great reviews listed, I didn't bother to read them, I just called the place to see see if they still had a room for $66 since it was a Saturday night! Talked to a really...

Large clean room, nice bathroom. table w/ 2 chairs in room, plus two wing chairs. Large clean pool. Along a busy road, but didn't hear any road noise, due to the air conditioning. Sufficient breakfast served in the morning too. Will definitely stay here again, as we visit relations in the area once a year or so. One thing I... More

On our way out to California, we stayed at the El Palomino Motel. We also chose to stay again while making our way home. The rooms are large enough for four people. They are nicely decorated. Not the typical mom and pop place from long ago. The owners take good care of their motel and also their guests. The breakfast... More

Like everyone else who commented about this place, we too thought it was fantastic. We were only here for 1 night as we passed through town and we couldn't have asked for a better place to spend the night. Our room was clean. The beds were comfy. I LOVED the bathroom which felt more like a bathroom in a home... More

We made reservations to stay at this motel. But when we arrived we had a service dog they wouldn't accept. We had just recently received a service dog for our disabled son and didn't have all the papers but had his training vest. They were very nice but did not allow us to stay since we didn't have the certificate... More

IWONAK, Owner at El Palomino Motel, responded to this review

It is our general policy to not accept any pets at our property. We do allow service dogs, however do require the appropriate paperwork proving this. Unfortunately, without the paperwork we were unable to accept your stay. When you made a reservation, only one hour earlier, you did not indicate you had a service pet with you. If you had,... More

What a great place. So family friendly and clean! Loved coming into the retro looking motel. Loved the hospitality and the clean rooms. What a great place for a great price. I would stay there again next time I'm in town.

Really enjoyed our stay here. It is an older vintage hotel but is in wonderful condition and very well maintained. Clean comfortable rooms and a great price. Owners were very nice and the breakfast was good. Will certainly stay here again when we come through Grand Junction.

...quiet, clean, comfortable bed, fridge, coffee for the AM, friendly and helpful owners...This was a one-night stop on a long road trip, and it's great -- I'd come back again if I'm ever traveling in this area again. I camp a lot, so for me, it's about meeting basic needs -- I don't need frills; AND, it's difficult to find... More

I booked this hotel by taking recommendations from the reviewers from TripAdvisor. Boy, I was not disappointed. When I arrived, the area around this hotel have become a little rundown. A strip mall across the street and other businesses surrounding it. I arrived and was a little worried about the look. It is older fashioned. But, when I went into... More
