I wish to extend my sincere appreciation to the staff of the Palmer House. My daughter and I stopped there today for breakfast. Our meals met out expectations, deliciously prepared. The manager on duty, Cara and her staff were very friendly and made us feel welcome. Worthy of many return visits. Peace be to all those who dwell there.

The Palmer House Hotel in Sauk Centre has it ALL! An old and charming hotel, with a restaurant on one end of the first floor, (off the lobby) and a bar with food menu at the other end. Some nights they have music in the bar area and we learned the patrons there as well as the hotel guests join... More

This hotel opened in 1901 and today is inhabited by a cast of characters who frequent the property! I heard my name mentioned several times, but no one was there. Doors creaked, strange noises abounded and I was even awaked with strange noises in my room! Just the place if you want a haunted experience. I was not a believer... More

We were on our way back from Moorhead Minnesota where we had a private residence Investigation. We stayed over night at the Palmer, we were half way home and very tired, we knew we would be and made the reservation a couple weeks before. The staff and Kelley made us feel like we were at home..We were in room 11.... More

Apparently these caretakers have decided to focus more on their Haunted exploits, and less on their food. My wife and I each ordered a Sandwich for Lunch,not knowing that it was going to be made by what appeared to be a 5 year old. A Rachel with one thin slice of Deli Meat,and a Cuban swimming in Barbeque Sauce. The... More

We stayed at the Palmer House on Sept 19-21 and this was an amazing adventure. Kelley and staff are the most caring and enthusiastic group we have ever encountered. Not only did they make you feel comfortable but that would visit with you as if you were family. We stayed in rooms 11 and 21 and we defiantly got our... More

My visit to the Palmer House Hotel was one of the best weekends of my life. There's a warmth and cozy feeling of home that I've never experienced at any hotel or B&B before. It's obvious the staff care about each other, and have a genuine love for the hotel, and in turn, its guests. I felt incredibly welcomed and... More

Came here for my birthday since I always have wanted to since this is somewhat of a locally famous hotel. Did not see or experience anything paranormal but did get some orbs on our pictures we took. But just listening to the staff talk about the history of the place and things they experienced was entertaining enough. The rooms were... More

Historic hotel in central MN. Owner is lovely and welcoming, some of the staff in kitchen were rude. Must try fritter bread french toast. Prepare for ghost stories. Stayed here on a couple of occasions, in suites.
