Our kids are 3 & 5 and this is the perfect place for us! Room was comfortable and clean and, most importantly, quiet. We were at the very end of the bldg on the first floor which made for a bit longer walk to pool but was very quiet. Pools were plenty for my kids. Food at Bavarian Restaraunt is... More

Our family visits the Bavarian Inn a few times a year, just to get away. The rooms are spacious and the activities are abundant. The family morals and values of the whole Frankenmuth area make this a place we enjoy taking our kids.

We try to make it to Frakenmuth at least once a year. We've stayed at The Bavarian Inn several times and have never been disappointed. Compared to other hotels in the area that have water slides, the Bavarian Inn was a much better value this time. Great cappuccino & pastries in the gift shop off the lobby. I was particularly...

Went to Bavarian Inn restaurant for the Princess lunch. Was pleasantly surprised when my 5 & 6 year old daughters were greeted by Judith the owner. The Princess lunch was awesome and the kids loved meeting Elsa & Ana. Later that day in the Lodge, the kids could not get enough of the pools and Family fun center. The indoor... More

Everything about our 1st time experience was wonderful. From staff at all levels to the food; one cannot find fault with any part of our 2 1/2 day stay. We'll be back! Thanks for interacting with our group; you made us feel very special.

Very clean, large rooms, plenty of activities for children, shopping and restaurants, within the facility. The convention facilities were very good, service through out the hotel were fantastic. Very close to outside events, Christmas theme stores, other restaurants, a old theme German town shopping center close by. A must see location to visit.

Frankenmuth is a beautiful Michigan city with a Bavarian theme. Good food, beautiful location, friendly people a great place to visit especially in the spring, summer and fall. The hotel is very similar to hotels I have stayed in the Black forest around Nurenberg. A very quaint hotel that is also comfortable and efficent

Dear Ron, Thank you for your kind words Ron. Our original settlers of Frankenmuth came from the Nurenberg region. So a high-five to the many developers in town for replicating our Bavarian motif in the correct style! We were honored to assist the AMBUCS Convention. We enjoy exposing all the FUN the Lodge has to potential delegates to come back... More

Dear Partsman, Thank so much for your recent stay at the Lodge. So pleased to hear of your enjoyment.
