Wow! What a nice clean place. Donna, the owner was fabulous! Close to all trails and a lot of places to eat. Clean rooms every day. Safe and secure. The lot is big enough for our trailers too. Just dropped it off there and went out. Highly recommend.

I had been planning a visit to Wakefield, MI in the UP from 2-8 Sep 16. Consequently, I made prior arrangements with the Traveler's Motel in Bessemer, MI. I told the front desk person that my flight to Duluth, MN would not arrive until 11:00 PM. Therefore, I would not be getting to the motel until well after midnight. No...

Management response:

Thank you for your review. I appreciate all reviews, positive or negative. I think this situation was a disconnect in communication. I did call you and leave a message to call me back. Also, I wish you would of called me if you were in my parking lot at 1:15 am. We strive to do our best to accommodate all...

My son (age 9) and I recently stayed at the Traveler's Motel for one night while touring the U.P. With so many waterfalls in the area, Traveler's Motel was well located for us, and online reviews looked good. We were not disappointed. The entire facility is clean, neat, and well maintained. Pride of ownership clearly shows, and Donna wasn't just...

This hotel was spotless. The owners were very accommodating, helpful and friendly. It was well-maintained. The price per night was very reasonable. I would stay here again. Great place to spend one night or many nights. I would recommend this hotel to family and friends. This place is a real gem!

12 rooms, a few with Queens, and a few with 2 bubbles in it... Supper clean, and supper nice owners. Room has a fridge as well as free Wifi. Vary affordable as well. This is my 4th time staying here, and will probably always say here when up in the area to see family.

Nice little motel (12 rooms) with very friendly owners. Advertises "super clean" and it was. Also advertises wifi and it does have WiFi but it is very weak and flakey (I think it's due to the location and nothing to do with the owners). Our room was very comfortable and had recently been renovated very tastefully. It had a small...

you cant beat the cleanliness or the price of this motel. My family has been staying there on trips to the UP for a lot of years. This was my first stay. The internet service was fast and this place was clean and very well maintained. The owners were very friendly. I would not hesitate to stay here again. I...

Stopped here in search of a room during a recent motorcycle trip. Expected typical mom & pop. What I got was top shelf. This place punches way above its rate class. Everything on the property is neatly done...from the lack of weeds, to the sealcoat on the parking lot. Everything is neat, clean, and tidy. The wi-fi is lightning fast....

I have to say this is one of the cleanest motels I have stayed at in a long time. Two things for improvement though. There was no wireless code available in the room, and it says on the sign outside "wireless". Secondly, there was no shampoo available in the room, only soap. Otherwise a very nice place to stay for...

This is the only place we stay when we visit the UP. Donna is attentive, but uninvasive and her rooms are always INCREDIBLY clean. It's quiet and always the perfect get away for us. Nothing but smiles!
