We have been to Frankenmuth Bavarian Inn many times and I am always impressed with the place. I have seen the many expansions to Bavarian Inn and the town in past 50 years with out the quality of the service degrading. The service at the hotel was great as always. When I ordered a Family Suite Room online I asked... More

We stayed in a whirlpool suit on the fourth floor complete with a private balcony. I have absolutely no complaints the room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the whirlpool was big enough to hold two people. The very private balcony was a welcome surprise. The lodge is within easy walking distance to town over the covered bridge or they... More

We wanted a clean, quiet place to stay in Frankenmuth. Couldn't have asked for a better hotel. Here are the top 5 things I loved about this hotel: 1. Great location. We walked everywhere! Walking distance to all attractions and restaurants. Beautiful view. We ran along a river trail right outside our room, which was great! 2. There were TONS... More

Five families came from South Carolina. Texas, New York, and Michigan to celebrate several family members' birthdays. All the amenities were great--we especially appreciated being able to walk to things downtown. Everyone loved the water slides! My grandson was especially thrilled to find his last name on one of the room doors. There was plenty to do for everyone.

Oma's restaurant was very accommodating to our children's dietary needs. The food was delicious! All of the staff members in all locations of the resort were helpful and friendly. Our room was...

We've never stayed here, though we definitely want to. The location is great and the decor is very interesting. We always eat here whenever we come to Frankenmuth. The food is delicious and plentiful and well worth the price. Excellent gluten free menu.

I love to stay here. We have stayed in a less expensive area motel. I always want to stay at this one. It is just so pretty & there is so much to do. The indoor golf is very nice (& being updated as I write this). The pools & slides are very clean & easy to access.

We loved everything about the Bavarian Inn Lodge. The food was great. My children loved the pools, mini golf and especially the arcade. Of corse, the price was great too. It was close to most of the attractions that we wanted to see.
