We were pleasantly surprised from this cute Inn in Palmer. Everything was very well thought of. It was very clean with all amenities. Very convient location. It was a pity that the Inn Cafe was closed.

In order to check in to this hotel, you need to go to the Valley Hotel, which is about three blocks away. The only staff on duty at the Colony is the person who cleans the rooms during the day. Both hotels are run by the same company and your room key will get you in the front door. We... More

Great hotel, a little piece of local history. It used to be a dorm for single teachers and nurses. If you want a sterile, room from a well-known hotel chain, stay away. If you are looking for a unique experience with lots of history and charm, this is the place to stay! Downstairs is a big living room with a... More

This in not your typical run of the mill hotel. It's an older, quaint, unique place to stay. Not fancy, and takes you back in time. We had a nice room on the first floor. Bathroom was bigger than some other places we have stayed. Nice bath and shower. Bed was OK. Also might add that there was a washer... More

This is a restored Historic Building. Because of this the floors creek, the walls are thin, things are out of level, power outlets are at a premium, etc. If you enjoy history and historical places it is easy to overlook these shortcomings. The restoration is very well done, the rooms are nicely appointed and comfortable. I definitely recommend this location... More

I'm from Fairbanks and was in Palmer for the State Fair and to attend a wedding. I wasn't impressed by the Colony Inn. It did have pleasant staff, but the check in was confusing as you have to go to another hotel (Valley Hotel) to get your key. No one explained this to me when I made reservations over the... More

My husband and I stay here when in town to watch our son's high school football games (once a year). I have just a couple of things to add as most of the reviews here are spot on. Check-in is never a pleasant experience. Never have we been smiled at or had the normal hotel "welcome" chatter. This is however,... More

The Colony has been accurately reviewed by others, but there are a few things to add. Although it isn't advertised as an adult environment, with the antiques and the stairs it is a place where children would have to be carefully supervised. There is a park adjoining with nice walking paths but no children's equipment in sight. The rooms are... More

There's no way this is a 4 or 5 star Inn no matter how you stretch it, but they're not trying to be either. Everything written so far is accurate about you having to get the key at another hotel, they don't always tell you this, they don't give you the wireless network key unless you remember to ask (and...

Most people who visit the small town of Palmer most likely do so when in the area to view the great outdoors; however, I was in town on business, and was there after the tourists had left. When I arrived at the hotel, it seemed deserted, and did not even have a front desk. Luckily another guest arrived, and told... More
