Our Story

In the 1920s, America got its first motor lodges. With the rise of car ownership, an increasing number of motorists sought comfortable places to stay along the way to their destination. Simmer Motel is one of these iconic roadside hotels, where classic Americana lives on in the Kansas River Valley at the base of the Flint Hills.
