Thank you for the review. Palmer is the perfect spot to use as a base camp for many of the local attractions. Even Anchorage is only a short 45 minute drive away. Glad you had a great stay

Don’t be concerned when you drive up - the outside appears old but the rooms are very clean, remodeled and comfortable. Nice bedding, good pillows and comfortable beds. Fluffy towels and nice shampoo, soaps and in room coffee. I highly recommend it.

yes we are a one story motel, where you park your vehicle directly in front on your room. There is a small step up to the side walk, about 6 inches and then another upon entering your room, again about 6 inches.
