“Pleasant Stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Check in went nice and staff was friendly. The motel is older, but clean. We stayed on the basis of TripAdvisor reviews and generally were pleased with the experience. The breakfast was ok. Not a big fan of hard biscuits or hard cinnamon rolls. 2 juices. 4 cereals. Overall was an average stay.

I use this motel often. It is such a pleasure, knowing I will be staying in a truely great and moderately priced room. The young man at the front desk, is always so friendly and helpful. The rooms are top notch, and very clean. The chair and ottoman are great. There is even a new computer chair, that compliments a great work desk.

My only problem was the rate (AAA, single) had increased by $15, since my last stay, in Dec./12. ($45 up to $60) I do not believe that that the prime season has arrived yet, as it was April 15.

My husband and I stay at this hotel every time we pass through York on our way to Colorado. On our most recent trip we were on our way home and I-80 was closed due to a blizzard at Grand Island. We drove in the blizzard on back roads just so we could get to York to stay here. The front desk staff is very helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean and the beds are nice and soft. We like that there is a fridge and microwave in the room. The breakfast is also wonderful! My husband really likes those fresh gravy and biscuits! It is also nice that it is away from some of the other hotels in town as it is in a very quiet area. The wi-fi is fast and reliable.
Next time we pass through York, we will be sure to stay!

Owner Jane very nosey. Offered to drive the baby and I to the doctor only to ask personal questions about my family. Maid service very limited. Continued to raise rates forcing us to move. Do not recommend!

We needed a cheap place to stay for one night and based on the price and the fact it looked like a cheap motel we were expecting the worst. We were blown away by the cleanliness and fantastic service we got. The amenities like a fridge and breakfast were more than one could expect. I've paid way more money for less accommodations. We would definitively come back to stay again and again.

My husband, adult daughter and I stayed one night on our way back home to Oklahoma from Wyoming. We chose the Palmer Inn based on Tripadvisor reviews and price. Check in went nice and smooth. First impression of our room was also favorable. It looked and smelled clean, not like some motel rooms that have a strong perfume cover-up smell. We sat on the beds and was pleased that they felt good - not too hard nor too soft. The pillows were so-so. My daughter was glad she brought her own. My husband and I did fine with the ones on the bed. Room was quiet and we all slept well. They have soap, lotion, body wash and shampoo dispensers filled with quality products instead of normal hotel type bottles. For a "budget-type" motel, they served a really nice breakfast including homemade cinnamon rolls (yummy), make your own waffles, biscuits & gravy (I didn't care for the gravy, but saw others eating it up), boiled eggs and other routine breakfast fanfare. The coffee was very good. I am planning another trip that direction later this year and will definately stay here!
Note: Motel is not located next to interstate like all the other motels but is not too hard to find and only a little ways from I-80 (near the Pizza Hut).

The motel is older, but clean. The night staff & owners are keepers! We had an "incident" with our trailer scraping their roof. Owners were not jerks & that says a lot to me. Even after our incident, the owner thanked us for staying with them.... They were Americans who spoke English. They served a nice breakfast. The room had what we needed. The price was CHEAP. This is what I am looking for when I travel...

Room Tip: Rooms on the West side are quieter.
