I found 27 motels listed on Trip Advisor yesterday morning and this little locally owned motel was rated #5 in Grand Junction, Colorado. I trust the reviews on Trip Advisor . The price per night was very attractive as well. My husband and I call taking a chance on staying at an unknown motel or hotel an "adventure in lodging" ....We took a chance based on the nice reviews of the El Palamino Motel and we booked a room for one night.
This little motel is a real GEM ! "Iwona" ( pronounced "Eyvona" ) greeted us warmly at check in.
We asked " Iwona" about a good place for dinner and she recommended the "Taquila's" family Mexican restuarant....The restaurant was a mere block away from this little motel. "Tequila's" was delicious and the service provided by "Lilly" was great ! The salsa was a winner ....Try anything with "carnitas" , the slow cooked pork.
Our El Palomino Motel room was as nice as several three star + motels / hotels we have stayed in over many years of travel. What a pleasant "adventure in lodging" !! The bed and linnens were very comfortable and of nice quality. Talk about clean !!! The entire room was lovely ,clean, smelled fresh and was in good repair. We were impressed with nice the tastful decor touches and pleasant art on the walls . The bathroom was sparkling fresh , small, but nicely appointed.
We will stay here again and we encourage you to try the "El Palomino Motel" in Grand Junction, colorado.
