Clean, comfortable, priced right. The bathroom was exceptional. The motel would have been highly rated at twice the price. The couch was a nice touch. The carpeting seemed like it was brand new. Friendly staff, good location on motel row...lots of similar family run motels on the strip...but don't know if others meet these standards.

We had been on the road all icy winter day, on arrival we were pleasantly greeted and rewarded with a nice clean,comfortable, thoughtfully appointed room. Hot water is right there quick.
- Look forward to returning for summer stay. For classic car or Motorcycle ride this place is about as good as it gets where you can have your rides right out front of your room and in sight of the swimming pool that sets in middle of the horshoe shaped property,,,
-Classic nostalgia,, "the sixties" revisited in real time at El Palomino.
-I travel alot , I know first hand the good, bad and the ugly...
-Superior value here at El Palomino, which for the uninformed is a Motel, and an original solid built quality one at that, it is NOT a Hotel, thankyou very much!. If you want a Hotel ,,, go there.
-Worthy to note: Short walk to "Tequila's" for superb Mexican cuisine.

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.)

This was a refreshing place to stay. It was clean, roomy and the bed was very comfortable. It was worth the short drive off the freeway. It was also refreshing to see the sign saying no pets. Some of us still like don't like to share our sleeping quarters with animals.

Room Tip: I took a corner room but they all seemed very nice.

The only reason I'm giving one star is because it is required. The quality matches the price. The manager is rude and facilities are not comfortable. I was am on a business trip and am worn out. i just wanted to make a hotpocket, watch some tv and get a good nights sleep. When i entered my room everything seemed fine. But after the first 15 minutes the reality was revealed. First of all the headboard fell off the wall and almost knocked me out. Then the wifi stopped working and didn't work for about an hour. i just decided to eat and take a rest, but the microwave didnt work. the manager yelled at me when I asked her to fix the malfunctioning microwave because it was almost 10pm! I just went to the taco place across the street. After i ate i went to sleep but the bed was so uncomfortable and the "heater" didnt even kick out warm air, i was freezing. to top off my stay the milk at breakfast was expired and the cereal had little bugs at the bottom of the clear containers. And don't use the ice because they leave the scoop inside the ice machine with a chain attached to it and the scoop and chain are full of mold!!!! I think that's a health code violation. I WOULD NOT recommend this motel to my worst enemy

Room Tip: Spend the extra $10 and go to Hamden on 708 horizon drive

This was my third time staying at the El Palomino and like the other times, a positive stay. This time around I noticed they upgraded the TV's to flat screens. And like always, a clean room at an affordable price. The owners not only manage the business but clean the rooms, your classic small family run business with pride in ownership. Many small businesses struggle to compete with corporate run facilities but this is a case where the small business has the edge. They deliver a cleaner room at a cheaper price without sacrificing amenities. And like the corporates they offer a continental breakfast. For those wanting something more there are restaurants closeby. I will be returning to Grand Junction in the Spring and my motel choice: El Palomino.
