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, a rustic, charming inn. It was built in the late 1930's as a boarding house. The floors creak and often there are people who seem oblivious to their noise level - this can happen anywhere. The lack of black-out drapes has always baffled me.
Within walking distance the Farmers Market near the railroad tracks is a fun thing to do. I don't know what days/hours they are open but they were open Friday afternoon when we checked in. There is also a visitor's center with a lovely garden (the plants are tagged with their names) . As others have said, Palmer has beautiful mountains and lovely scenery when the weather cooperates.
