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.

My husband and I have a friend who lives in Wamego, we have visited him there for many years now, I guess at least 20 yrs., we have always stayed at Simmer Motel, of course many years ago, they were the only motel there. We have always had a clean and sanitary room, and we have used several of them... More

We saw many great reviews for this place before we booked it. Well, we were a bit surprised. I will say that the place was clean and it was fine. It is very old (not charming old, just old) and dated. We were a large party, so perhaps the other rooms were a bit more updated. The swimming pool was... More

Dear Moonglowcottage- We are sorry to hear that you were surprised with our motel. On our website, Facebook page, and on trip advisor, and many other review sites, we have many images of both the outside, and inside of various rooms which we have. We try to make our motel unique, comfortable, clean, and cozy for our guests. Unfortunately, not... More

Stayed here for the weekend. Friendly staff, well kept up building and rooms. Plenty of parking, bathroom was small but clean. Smoking room was the only one available but it would be tough to tell, still clean and no smoke odor noted. Great stay, great value.

Having not stayed in a place that wasn't a chain-I was blown away! I immediately felt as though I were family from the moment I stepped in the office. The staff made every effort to make sure our stay was nothing short of amazing! I am looking forward to the next chance to stay here!

We can't say enough about this place, the owner and the staff are so sweet and couldn't be more helpful. The rooms decorated great and so clean. You can tell it is family owned and operated. There is a playground for the kids. What a value for such a great place. I would stay here again and recommend to anyone.

Wamego basically has two hotels and I would select this place anytime. It's an older vintage strip motel but it is SPOTLESSLY maintained, like new. The rooms are very individual and unique, check-in was easy and friendly, the room had all the amenities you could possibly want (except shampoo ~ I only have like 100 hotel shampoos at home already)...

I have long known the rooms are individually decorated utilizing antiques and special touches. The room I had was perfect for my week away from home. It was decorated with a South Western flare. The couch and desk were perfect areas for the work I was in town to do. The bed was comfortable when my work was done. With... More
