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 recommend.

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 a firepit handy with all the firewood you could ever use; not to mention gas grilles!!!! If you're looking for a place with personality and coziness, this is the place for you. Even the other guests were friendly!!! I will definitely stay here again!!!

Room Tip: Grab one of the two kitchenette's if possible......nice to have the extra space and a place to w...

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 to see there was a fire pit, with firewood! Our boys made a fire both nights we stayed.
We have already booked for another trip this year. This will be our new motel to stay in when we visit Onekama.

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 occupied them for a long time! Our favorite part was hanging out by the camp fire & roating marshmallows. We met great friends & booked a week stay this summer. My kids are excited to come back and enjoy the near by beaches.

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 have helped. The bathroom tub apparently had a clogged drain, as I was standing in over 3 inches of water before I was able to finish my shower. There was also soap scum on the shower tiles. I would have preferred to have a coffeemaker in the room so I could enjoy my cup of coffee in the there instead of having to walk across the parking lot to the lobby where they had 1 regular coffeemaker for all their guests. Also "breakfast" consisted of a pre-packaged danish. Some fresh fruit (banana's or apples) would have been nice. All in all even with the "senior discount" it was not a good value for our money.

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 within 10 miles.

The room was clean and the kitchenette was great and a whole lot cheaper than the cottage we used to rent.

Overall we liked the travelers motel and will definitely go back.
