If you ever stayed in a small motel as a kid during the 60s (ok, I'm dating myself), you'll have a good idea of the layout and size of the El Palomino. We chose the motel based on other TripAdvisor reviews. The owners are redoing the property as time and $$$ allow, and our room was nicely done with both a small sofa and chair for sitting. Only downside: The bed was a bit dippy in the middle (but unless brand-new, I think king-sized beds in hotels/motels tend to do that). However, the room was clean, free from funky smells and any sign of bugs, the TV was great (large flat-screen with Dish channels), free wi-fi, and even though the property is close to a well-traveled street, it was quiet. The room also had a small microwave (which we didn't use), a compact fridge/freezer, and coffee-maker. There is a basic Continental breakfast (cereal, packaged pastries, coffee, fresh fruit--we didn't try because we had other plans). All rooms are non-smoking and no pets allowed. The owners are friendly/accommodating. The price of our stay was very reasonable--comparable to a bargain chain but much better quality. I think we'd stay here again and try a double-queen room next time. (P.S. Bring removable towel hooks like 3M Command--bath was lacking ways to hang towels, etc.)
