I have been going to this hotel/restaurant for years. It's fun, family friendly, and surrounded by plenty to do. You don't need more than two days to see the whole area, but it's worth the trip! When we were looking for wedding locations, we chose this hotel because it provided a great alternative to a more expensive "destination" wedding. The... More

We got a great price and decided to stay here and we thrilled we did. The inside and outside make you feel like you are staying at someone's castle or something. It does not feel like a retail establishment. The staff everywhere is down to earth and friendly. The room was clean and comfortable and we had a great view... More

This is our second reunion at Frankenmuth (our 19 annual reunion) and it was good to return a location that we remember fondly. The service and our experience was excellent. For those of us who served in Germany this like old home week. We will be back.

What a pleasant time we had. I wish I would have brought all the grandkids. The trip we planned was for a specific shopping area, what a pleasant surprise the Bavarian Inn was. Every person we encountered was friendly and helpful. I would certainly recommend the Bavarian Inn to young and old and everyone in the middle. I will certainly... More

We will go out of our way to stay here again. The service in all area of the property were outstanding. The food was incredible and the best of all was the adult only pool and hot tub. If you go make sure you join their perk club.

I stayed at this property as a conference participant. The room was clean and comfortable, and the staff worked hard to make my stay an enjoyable one. This property includes an inside water fun park. Each room is named for a Bavarian family name and the family history is posted in the room, adding to the old-world charm. I will... More

Greeted and treated wonderfully. From front desk check-in, to our room staff, to the restaurant and beverage servers, all the way to the outdoor entertainment. I highly recommend Bavarian Inn for a getaway.

This is the place to stay if you want to fully enjoy the atmosphere of Frankenmuth. We didn't meet a staff member who wasn't ready to say hello with a smile. We had a nice room with a balcony and a view of the river. If we had to be picky, the beds were a bit on the small side... More
