I was planning a trip to Saginaw for a kid’s tournament, when I thought about staying at Bavarian inn lodge and felt that three (3) boys would enjoy this short stay. I spent my time relaxing in the great room and they had a great time at the pool and waterslide. I have asked them several days later about the... More

My husband and I took our 2 grandsons for a night away at the Bavarian Inn Lodge. Our grandsons loved the younger children's pool area; especially the sprinklers in the pool. The grounds are quite lovely. Hotel staff were pleasant and professional. The only area of concern was the lack gluten free choices on the menu, as one that has... More

The Bavarian Inn Lodge is amazing. It has a distinct atmosphere about it that makes you feel as though you are actually in Bavaria. The staff is very friendly and won't hesitate to greet you and wish you a good day or evening. They make you feel like family. Amenities in the room are great, especially the fridge to store...

We stayed here as part of a week long car show event with about 350 people. The hotel is privately owned (thus not a part of any chain hotels) and geared especially toward families with young children. They have a large game room area and swimming pool areas for kids (and a pool for adults) which are well managed. Rooms... More

We loved the Bavarian Lodge. My Daughter loved the Swimming Pools and Arcade. A great place for families. The Bavarian Inn Restaurant was excellent. It reminded you were in Germany. The food was so good we went twice during our stay for Dinner.

Room and Staff were great. During our stay there was a Tornado Warning to take immediate cover. The staff was very professional in the general announcement and getting all hotel guest down to the basement in a safe and orderly fashion. This was their first evacuation in twelve years. Wonderful staff, helpful and caring.

Dear BusterJC, Thank you so much for your kind words on this site. We review procedures regularly for tornado, fire, smoke, blackout and brownout procedures so all staff are prepared. Sorry we had to implement these procedures. A tornado did touch down about 3 miles south of the Lodge that evening. It is a blessing that nobody was seriously injured... More
