I didn't need fancy just clean, and that is exactly what I got. Comfortable bed, good water pressure, cable TVa couple of chairs, a table &... More

This is a cute little mom-and-pop type motel right in the heart of Oscoda. The rooms are extremely clean. The beds are comfortable and all of the rooms have a mini fridge and a microwave. The only complaint I have is that the ice machine was not working - there was a sign in the office that said "No ice... More

We spent two night at the Northern Traveler. It's nothing fancy but it was clean, and the bed was comfortable. The price was also right at $58.00 including tax. The owner Ed and staff were very friendly. We slept very well with no noise problems.

The rooms are simple, but clean; older, but maintained. This isn't a place to stay if you need luxury. It's a really simple mom-n-pop. We... More

We headed to East Tawas for their 4th of July celebration. Unfortunately we'd forgotten to call ahead to our favorite motel there (The Bambi), and they were full. We decided to give the Northern Traveler a shot. It's an old style motel. Nothing fancy at all. We had one of the rooms that jut out (you'll see what I'm talking... More
