I was on a cross-country roadtrip and stopping overnight in Wamego for the Oz Musuem. I love staying in old-school motels and the Simmer Motel was a true gem. Check-in was easy and friendly, room was very clean and well maintained and the bed was very comfortable. Clearly they have maintained the rooms well and it was one of the...

The Simmer Motel has been family owned since it was built, probably in the mid 50's. This is your classic "old style" motel that was done right in the past and is still done right now. They take pride in their property, rooms and your experience. The property consists of the original section and several newer additions. Every room in...

We stay here when we turkey hunt every spring. The people there are really friendly and are great people to work with. We called the day we needed a room and we were able to get one. They brought us a cot and set it up for us and everything. The rooms are very clean.

I have stayed at the Simmer Motel on several occasion when working at the local hospital. It is very comfortable, quiet and peaceful. I have the rooms to be very quaint and love the décor. I highly recommend it. Staff have been very helpful.

Let me start by saying FREE WIFI. Total unexpected plus. We stayed in room 119 for a girlfriends getaway. The room was clean and neat. The decor was adorable and not outdated. The motel felt safe and homey and was in a good central location. I would definitely recommend and will return.

The room was simple and very reasonable in cost, but very clean and comfortable. The pool and pool area was clean and well maintained. I would recommend it to any of my friends and family and will definitely stay there again myself. It's a terrific value.

I had to find a place to stay to visit a friend in Manhattan. This spot was only about 20 minutes away and I had researched the good reviews and decided to give it a shot. I arrived very late (3am) and my key was left at the front with my name on it and a map to find my...

I was just looking for a local motel, and I was really pleasantly surprised when I walked in the room. Really lovely, comfortable, great colors, nice sofa, great shower, great TV. Never heard anything from other rooms, although the place was packed with work crew guys. Was able to borrow a hair dryer, no problem. Really enjoyed my stay.

“The AC was really loud which might be a consideration in the summer. I just used it briefly to cool down the room. I recommend earplugs.”
