El Palomino is one of the old-style highway motels that were common in the 50's and 60's. Thankfully, the owners (a family) have done a great job of caring for the property. Our room was comfortable, nicely decorated, and clean. The only issue we had were with the neon lights outside of our window at night. The room was missing the kind of blinds that block out light. I noticed that some rooms had them and others didn't. But, we managed to sleep well after a vigorous day of exercise nonetheless. The highway in front of the hotel doesn't have a divider in the median, and you have to drive a short distance and flip around in an adjacent parking lot to get to the hotel if you are coming from the west, which wasn't a big issue for us. The pool looked sparkling clean, but we didn't have a chance to enjoy it.
I recommend this motel if you are looking for great value and a clean, quiet room.
