In a nice area but nothing special, this hotel stood out for me. The rooms were beautiful and the bed was especially lovely. For a hotel that was reasonably priced, I rate this five out of five and recommend it to anyone in the area.

Four girlfriends and I spent four days at the Palmer House Motel & Resort. It is a unique and quite retro spot, with lots of things to do (par three golf, tennis, pool, fishing, croquet). We felt like we were at summer camp for grown-ups. We rented all three rooms in the "chalet", and had a great time drinking wine & eating wonderful VT cheeses on our porch, looking at the gorgeous view from our porch rockers. The accommodations were comfortable, if a little dated, but that only added to the charm. The personnel were all friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I am already looking forward to our girl's only weekend next year!

Room Tip: We loved our three rooms (including 1 suite) in the chalet house. We had the whole building & it...

My friend and I spent four days at the Palmer House in Manchester, Vermont, in the middle of June 2011. The motel is in a beautiful setting off Main Street. It has heated indoor and outdoor pools, tennis courts, a nature walk and even a fish pond. A 9-hole golf course winds around the extensive property. The rooms, bathrooms and grounds are immaculate and comfortable. The hot water comes on in a second! A continental breakfast is available in a nice breakfast room. There is even a doll collection and a model train set in a room next to the office. The staff is extremely helpful, and we were amazed at how perfect the place was. The Palmer House is without a doubt the best motel we have ever been in. It is more expensive than the average ordinary motel, but we did receive a very reasonable rate in June.

The Palmer House is the perfect place, the rooms are very large and tastefully decorated with attention to detail....there is an indoor and outdoor pool, a gym, tennis courts and a three par golf course around the property. This is the cleanest accommodation we have ever stayed at. The indoor pool is huge and they have a change area with a shower and as an extra touch provide free water. The Olde Tavern restaurant on the property is excellent place to eat. All the staff was very pleasant and most accommodating. We will definitely recommend this place to anyone going to Manchester and will stay there whenever we are in the area.

The Palmer House looks great from the road but was ever better when we drove in. 22 acres right in the center of Manchester Vt... A perfectly maintained property with a short 9 hole golf course, outdoor and indoor pools, picnic areas, trees and beautiful views. Our room was a very large room with king size bed - cleanest room that we've ever been in regardless of price. Very, very friendly staff. We've told others to stay here and will be back later this summer for a longer stay.

Lodging options in the Manchester area tend to be either very expensive or seemingly dingy motels. The Palmer House offers a middle option. Several room types are available (motel rooms and a small # of condo-like units). We stayed in one of the regular motel rooms. It was large, well maintained and clean. The furnishings are nice quality but very traditional looking (dark woods, paintings of fox hunting). The bathroom also was well maintained and clean. The location is just on the outskirts of Manchester (definitely walking distance, 5-7 minutes, to shops and restaurants in good weather, at least). The property is large allowing the rooms to be set well off the road. I would recommend the Palmer House as a basic, no frills but clean and well maintained place to stay for a reasonable value.
