“I can see why this place rates so high”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Large clean room, nice bathroom. table w/ 2 chairs in room, plus two wing chairs. Large clean pool. Along a busy road, but didn't hear any road noise, due to the air conditioning. Sufficient breakfast served in the morning too. Will definitely stay here again, as we visit relations in the area once a year or so. One thing I wish they would add, coz they certainly have ample room, is luggage racks.

On our way out to California, we stayed at the El Palomino Motel. We also chose to stay again while making our way home. The rooms are large enough for four people. They are nicely decorated. Not the typical mom and pop place from long ago. The owners take good care of their motel and also their guests. The breakfast is served in the office area with cereal, waffles, yogurt and fruit. Juices, milk and coffee are provided as well. Should we make our way out west again this is a motel I would stop to stay at. Reasonably priced with all the flair of a big name chain. Truly a gem.

Like everyone else who commented about this place, we too thought it was fantastic. We were only here for 1 night as we passed through town and we couldn't have asked for a better place to spend the night. Our room was clean. The beds were comfy. I LOVED the bathroom which felt more like a bathroom in a home rather than a generic hotel room. The pool was large, deep and very clean. Our room had a fridge and microwave and flat screen tv which we didn't use. Breakfast was simple continental style and the coffee was good with real half and half! The owners/managers? were very friendly and pleasant to deal with. We will stay here the next time we are passing through Grand Junction.
*** There is a great Mexican restaurant within walking distance called Tequilas. We though it was excellent, pricey, but good and lots of food for the money.

We made reservations to stay at this motel. But when we arrived we had a service dog they wouldn't accept. We had just recently received a service dog for our disabled son and didn't have all the papers but had his training vest. They were very nice but did not allow us to stay since we didn't have the certificate yet.

It is our general policy to not accept any pets at our property. We do allow service dogs, however do require the appropriate paperwork proving this. Unfortunately, without the paperwork we were unable to accept your stay. When you made a reservation, only one hour earlier, you did not indicate you had a service pet with you. If you had, we would have let you know that we require the paperwork and this unfortunate situation would not have happened.

What a great place. So family friendly and clean! Loved coming into the retro looking motel. Loved the hospitality and the clean rooms. What a great place for a great price. I would stay there again next time I'm in town.

Really enjoyed our stay here. It is an older vintage hotel but is in wonderful condition and very well maintained. Clean comfortable rooms and a great price. Owners were very nice and the breakfast was good. Will certainly stay here again when we come through Grand Junction.

...quiet, clean, comfortable bed, fridge, coffee for the AM, friendly and helpful owners...This was a one-night stop on a long road trip, and it's great -- I'd come back again if I'm ever traveling in this area again. I camp a lot, so for me, it's about meeting basic needs -- I don't need frills; AND, it's difficult to find a place that can meet even just the basics while simultaneously being economical. Thank you, Palomino.
