Reviewed 13 June 2014

My wife and try to stay in old motels that have been brought back to life. This was a real surprise when we drove up and saw the old "El Palomino" sign sitting out by the road. When we checked in the owner told us when they bought the motel it had been closed for 10 years. Through hard work and persistence they slowly painted and cleaned and as the business picked up they began to restore the rooms one by one. Let me tell you this was the cleanest motel we have ever stayed in. The rooms were the original size, with a nice ceramic tile bath, coffee maker and flat screened wall mounted TV. The outside grounds were well manicured and the pool was sparkling clean. I don't know if the owner cleans the rooms, but you could eat off of the floor. We have stayed in the lowest end motels ($19,95) per night to plush 5 star resorts at many hundred of dollars per night and this was by far the best deal we have ever found for the price. I can't say enough about the El Palomino Motel. If you are in Grand Junction and you can't stay here, keep on driving. Dollar Tree store across the street sells great popcorn and they are open late.

We decided to stay here based on TripAdvisor reviews and agree completely. Iwona greeted us warmly at afternoon check in and was just as pleasant at breakfast which had a good variety including waffles. The restaurant she recommended on Rood had delicious, but a little pricey as she mentioned, food and eating outside on the patio was enjoyable. We walked in the downtown area but as it was Monday night, it was very quiet.

After a long day of driving through the Great Basin, we were delighted to find that our room was immaculately clean, spacious, nicely furnished, and had HBO and fast WiFi. The owners are very friendly and helpful, and made a restaurant recommendation for dinner that proved to be excellent. The complimentary breakfast was very good, and we were more than satisfied with every aspect of our stay. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Room 126 is very quiet. Please ignore the above "terrible" ratings. That is the only ratin...

Clean!! Clean!! Clean!! This motel and grounds were spotless! From the parking lot to the blinds on the windows. We were traveling from Lake Powell and stopped here for the night based on Tripadvisor reviews. The owners were extremely attentive and nice. They brought us extra towels for the pool, turned up the pool so it would be warmer for the kids and let us fill our cooler with ice. We were traveling with our children and grandchildren and booked 3 rooms to accommodate all of us, all the rooms were clean and well appointed. Breakfast was more then adequate. We would definitely stay here again and recommend the motel to all travelers.

I read the reviews which are overwhelmingly positive. Also read the few negative ones and found no truth in their complaints.
I usually stay a name brand hotels but when I saw this was rated 2 out of 22 hotels in Grand Junction and the price inc. tax was $73.....I jumped at making a reservation.
I was wonderful. Clean on the outside and very clean on the inside. Shower is awesome as hot water comes out the second you turn on the hot water.
The owners are friendly to people that are nice to them. They were very nice to me.
Large flat screen TV. Parking lot is very convenient and immaculately clean as is the pool.
I won't hesitate for one moment staying here again when I am back next year.

It really bothered me to see the very few negative reviews because I checked their complaints and found them completely untrue. Makes me think that maybe jealous owners of other area hotels made up the very few negative reviews of this hotel.

This is by far the nicest motel I have ever stayed in....

Stayed here based on reviews on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. On arrival was greeted by the owner. Our room (26) had a one of the most comfortable king size beds I have slept inn and the room had all the amenities you need for a short stay. The motel is within easy driving distance of shops and restaurants in Grand Junction and the staff were great with advice where to eat and shop. Breakfast although choice was limited was ample. If you are looking for value this is the place to go.
