My daughter and I stayed at the Palmer Inn (aka America's Best Value Inn) in York, Nebraska in August 2009. When we pulled up, I thought, uh-oh, this place doesn't look so great. The architecture is uninspired, at best - kind of a cell-block look. But when we entered the room, it was just fine - clean and nicely furnished.
Their internet access was via ethernet cable, which was fine with me, as I carry one with my laptop. If you don't have one, they have them at the front desk.
While they use key cards for room access, they re-use them from one guest to the next, so you have to remember to leave them in your room at the end of your stay.
The pool (which is in a fenced-off area of the parking lot) was worth a visit, if only to read the rules. Rule #1 states that anyone using the pool must take a shower, in the nude, using hot water and soap. Reasonable enough, but more detailed than most "you-gotta-shower" pool rules. It was Rule #2, however, that I particularly appreciated. I don't remember it verbatim, but there was an unintentional double negative in it, which resulted in the unusual requirement that you can only use the pool if you have a contagious disease. I wish I'd taken a picture of that sign.
The breakfast looked fine, but we didn't partake.
We'd stay there again, if only to take a photo of the pool rules sign.
