thank you for the review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Palmer is a wonderful spot to use as a "jumping off" from as we are well within a short drive of many fantastic things.

yes we are a one story motel, where you park your vehicle directly in front on your room. There is a small step up to the side walk, about 6 inches and then another upon entering your room, again about 6 inches.
