Traveling for holidays and decide to stop over and spend a few nights in Grand Junction before heading to Vegas. Saw this hotel on a cannabis friendly lodging site and decided to give it a try. Quite affordable and accommodating, the communal kitchen was an added bonus to saving on eating out daily. The staff was awesome in knowing what... More

This vintage hotel is also a hostel to budget or lone travelers. Check in was quick at 9pm. We booked a room with two beds and our own bathroom as we did not want to share a community bathroom. Heater kept turning off and on all night despite our efforts to set it so it would stay on all night.... More

Take this review with a grain of salt because I only spent a few hours here and never got a room. I arrived very late at night because of a train delay. I had a reservation at this place, and called ahead to let the manager (?) know I would be arriving at 2 or 3 am. He said fine,... More

Some think this is old and decrepit, but I think it is a neat old interesting vintage hotel. If you are on a budget, not interested in typical expensive hotels, this works! Had a large ground floor room on the back with clean beds, bath a/c and ceiling fan, shower. Everything worked well. Is also hostel for those who wish... More

As the name states it's a historic place. By far one of the oldest houses in town. So if you're looking for an all shiny new hotel block this is not your place. But for us the Melrose was just perfect for a few nights. You could feel the history and heritage when walking through the narrow hallways with the... More

Some "historic" hotels are quaint, charming, or interesting. The staff attempt to make it work, but this property is old, decrepit, and worn out. The Rodeway Inn up the street would have been a much better choice.

you remember those older hotels our grandparents went to... Near downtown, with a lobby and rooms up the stairs? Well, as time goes on, those hotels usually change direction (as they age) and usually start doing long-termed residents and a few room for hostelers.. like me. Despite what others may say, the place is clean and tidy. There is a... More

The place is full of drug dealers, drunks, pill poppers and homesexuals. Aids, Hep C and Herpes are are some of the things you may get if you stay here. The common bathrooms are NEVER cleaned and the place is very dirty.

Grand Junction is one of the friendliest towns we have ever visited. This Hotel is no exception! Henry (the Manager) is very knowledgeable of the restaurants and clubs in the downtown area, all within walking distance of the Hotel. The Museum is just around the corner, and we spent an afternoon learning about the History of Western Colorado. If you... More

GJ is one of tour stops every year, and this is the first time we picked a hotel in downtown and not way out by the freeway. So right there is the first star - a stellar location. The staff was more than accommodating and friendly. They checked us in when we arrived in the middle of the night, fixed... More
