From the Front desk to the Cleaning Staff, everyone was extremely nice and helpful. The kids loved the water slides and pool. I am a game room junky ( the mom). It was so nice to be warm in side when it was so cold outside. Loved the food and entertainment.

Upon attending a recent training seminar for work, I was able to mix business and pleasure at the Bavarian Inn. The Bavarian theme was complemented with modern amenities for the business person as well as families looking for an excellent resort environment. I found the staff were not only very polite, but were very helpful when asked for assistance. Upon... More

My husband and I purchase their Valentine's package every year for weekend away and it's a fantastic stay and beautiful room every time. Though the hotel has many kids because of all of the activities, we really didn't notice because our suite was far enough at the back of the hotel it was very peaceful. Also, the restaurant and bars... More

Frankmuth Michigan is a lovely town. The Bavarian Inn takes advantage of it's excellent location by overcharging for their poor accommodations. Their chicken that they advertise as FAMOUS is a mediocre meal at best and they charge approximately $25.00. It isn't worth $5.00. We were met by rude employees at the front desk and it never improved. The facility is... More
