This place is homey and comfortable. We brought our dogs and had a great stay. This was a nice alternative to the resort up the road where our friends got married. Much more affordable with friendly, helpful hosts.

Beware! They say they take pets but you are not able to leave to unattended and they don't tell you this until you arrive. They charge 20/hour! We knew this wouldn't work for our 10 year old lab (gets too hot in the sun for too long) but they refused to refund us our room rental after we were able...

Old motel. Needs lots of updating but good price and the owners are very nice. A short walk to one bar/restaurant and grocery store. A little longer walk (half mile or so?) to a breakfast & lunch cafe, park and wine tasting.

There were 2 couples in our party. The room was reasonably clean. Our bed was very nice, but, the other couples' was a little soft. Price was right. Can tell this was a great place at one time, it's beginning to show it's age, hopefully the owners give it the little bit of TLC it's in need of. Would still...

This is one of the neatest places I've ever stayed in. This is an old fashioned up north motel that prides itself on cleanliness and old fashioned hospitality. Owner Jane along with Tammy make you feel right at home and like you knew them forever. Though not advertised, Travelers has cable TV and Wifi. And where else do you have...

My family has been going to Onekama for many years. This year we decided to give the Travelers Motel a try! What a great place. We were welcomed upon arrival with a smiling face! Our room was great. It was really clean and was really better than I expected. We had 3 teenage boys with us so we were happy...

My family & I loved our stay at the Travelers Motel. The owner/operators (Jane & Mike) were more than happy to accomadate all my needs. They gave me a coffee maker for my room, for my first cups of coffee. We then enjoyed the company of the other guest on the beautiful deck. My children loved the tree swing, this...

Traveled with my husband, daughter and small pet. The first thing I noticed upon opening the door was a strong odor of chemicals which probably has alot to do with the type of cleaning products that they use. We turned on the air conditioner which seemed to help. The room was a bit dark so a little more light would...

We were really quite happy with the travelers motel. The lady at the check-in counter was really nice and seemed happy to see us. The maintenance man even told us where the good fishing was and suggested some good places to eat. The kids enjoyed the lakes nearby and us adults liked the golfing and casino, both of which were...
