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.

I'll admit the room was clean and well maintained, as you would hope for in a motel. The decor left a comfortable feeling, but that was about the only thing that was comforting. I found the staff to be less than professional. I heard the owner yelling at one of her housekeepers in a belittling tone. This may not seem... More

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 The decor was adorable and not outdated.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 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.

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
