Our history spans over 70 years. The story begins with Ken & Cyrena Kinseth in 1957. Ken & Cyrena went into the hotel business quite by accident. Ken was a very successful mechanical contractor. But one of his business associates owed him some money and he paid his debt with a little “Mom & Pop roadside motel.” Ken & Cyrena liked the business so well and seeing the opportunities that could exist for investing in small motel properties. Ken switched careers in 1966 and founded the Kinseth organization.
