The room was clean, comfortable, quiet, and peaceful. Everything was handy and the owner was very nice. The stay was reminiscent of years-gone-by when life was simpler and happier. This is a great way to get a good night's sleep off of the beaten path.

The Simmer Motel is one of the best lodging facilities I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. It's hometown spirit, friendliness, and attention to detail is beyond reproach. The manager and her staff that run the Simmer Motel are hometown residents who take pride in their community and enjoy the atmosphere of hometown living. They are always there... More

This woman has gone to the extreme to make your visit to her motel perfect. It is decorated in homemade quilts and accessories. You have wifi, a good air conditioner and everything is clean and operating. I had good WiFi reception and my husband read a book so we can not comment on the TV. She is available to you... More

Driving across Kansas on I-70 I was trying to find a place to land for the night. Most of the chain hotels had terrible ratings but I came across the Simmer Motel in Wamego. The reviews were great and the motel did not disappoint me. Well worth the extra drive off the Interstate.

Heading out of KSU on our road trip, we spotted this classic motel, complete with playground equipment. Tabitha welcomed two tired travelers to a homey room, and described her list of local restaurants. The room's personal decorating touches distinguished it from the usual chain motel. Thanks to their convenient laundry area, we finished several days worth of laundry too.

Road trip! I loved that we chose this non chain, foreign owned hotel. We were looking for clean rooms and a pool for our little granddaughters. We found it! The people are very helpful and friendly. The rooms are all decorated with personal care and each different. The pool was small and might not have worked if the girls were... More

We are enjoying a road trip that has a few planned destinations but the advantage of no deadlines and taking meandering routes. Today we toured the Truman Library in Independence, MO. We are heading to Colorado so we started west on I-70. We decided to exit and take state hwy. 24. We were starting to look for a place to... More

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... More

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... More

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.
