We only had one night in Frankenmuth and were more interested in visiting Bronner's Christmas Store than the downtown area, so we searched online for lodging near Christmas Lane. The Frankenmuth Motel was less than 1/2 mile away, so we chose it based solely on location. We made our reservation online thru the website and had no problems. The motel... More

Very clean, extra pillows in the room. Staff is very friendly and gave us tips on points of interest in the area. Motels are much... More

A lovely, clean motel, located near the gigantic Bronner's Christmas store and the Bavarian style historic town of Frankenmuth. All the units are at ground level, no stairs to climb. You get an excellent quiet sleep, nice continental breakfast, at a reasonable price for such a tourist destination.

While the Frankinmuth Motel was convient to Bronners and the restaurants and shopping, that was not really a plus factor as there were many more modern and equal , if not better value a few miles away. The room was clean and adequate but not worth the $95 + tax per night. Could've done better if Ihad been familiar with... More

This was our first trip to Frankenmuth and I checked trip advisor reviews re hotels on the road to Michigan. The Hotel we chose first was not available on the first night and so we chose to stay here based on the reviews that it was clean and within walking distance to downtown. { 15 min stroll} Queen sized bed,...

We overnighted in Frankenmuth on our way across the northern US, with an eye to visiting Bronner's, and exploring the retail in the town. Had stayed at this motel about 10 years ago. Price we thought $86 plus taxes for seniors was pretty good. Reservations handled smoothly over the phone Check-In - quick and courteous. Every day they pick the... More

We have been coming to this motel for 4 or 5 years. They have always been friendly and accomodating. This year we find many new updates. New refrigerators, new air conditioners, new flat screen TV, new phones and glasses instead of plastic. Their continental breakfast was very good, from mini to large bagels, muffins, toast and a pecan bun that... More

This motel is located in a great spot. You can walk to many places within a mile or so. Bronners and the military museum are especially close. This is a very clean and neat property. It is a MOTEL so just have reasonable expectations. Continental breakfast in the lobby was a nice touch.

We stayed at this motel the first time because it was the cheapest place that was close. It turned out to be great for us! Right beside Bronners, you can get in and out with no mess. You drive right up to the room and drop off large purchases with no elevators and crowds. It is easy to drive to... More
