Older property but clean. Right off main road if going through Palmer.

The front desk manager was exceptionally friendly & accomodating

The property does not look like much from the outside, but the staff was friendly, the room was spacious, clean, and well appointed. There are two gas stations around the corner, an ice ream parlor and convenience store across the street, and a good restaurants just down the block. Plus, it is only 1/2 block off the Glen Highway.

It was a very nice place to stay. I stayed for a week with no problems

AFFORDABILITY!!

Recently renovated older motel. Rooms are small but very functional. Well located for Palmer town services and shopping.

The customer service was amazing! Very friendly and helpful. Property is a bit older but for the price I was happy. Also a great location, close to the Palmer Alehouse and Matanuska Brewing.

Miss Linda is absolutely amazing and kind! She made my stay at the Pioneer very comfortable. The rooms are spacious and offer a microwave as well as a refrigerator. There is also a coffee maker in the room. There are also plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance, which makes The Pioneer a real gem to Palmer! Thank you for a wonderfully comfortable stay. I will look forward to staying with you again when I'm back in town! Ther

Nice clean comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay

I was suprised how clean, convenient and well kept it was. We were planning to spend much for an overnight stay. We looking for a place in palmer for something on our way to denali the next day.

We were in Anchorage and Denali National park for 7 days, and one day in Palmer on the way home. This hotel was the best we stayed in during our Alaska trip! The accommodations were clean, pretty, roomy and comfortable. The owner was very responsive and supportive. I highly recommend this hotel!

Room to room a bit noisy. Other than that a good value.

Everything we expected with one major exception. NO ICE MACHINE! I had to walk across a busy highway and buy ice in a cup.

The hotel staff was friendly and very helpful. Gave us information to explore the area around. The room was clean and had all basic amenities. Convenient location.
