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

We stopped here to check on a room rate because it was just off of the main street and quiet. On Main Street was road construction and lots of traffic. We looked at the hotels advertisement card in the lobby with pictures of the rooms. We THOUGHT by the photos on the card that the rooms were dated and needed... More

First off - this is Frankenmuth, tourist trap extraordinaire. So $116 for a Saturday night at a no-frills motel is still cheaper than anything you'll find in that area. It is an older but well-kept facility; very comfy beds, super clean, wall-mounted TV, effective air conditioning and a decent-sized fridge in our room. The whole place has a community-camp feeling,... More

Heading to northern Michigan we were looking to spend one night in Frankenmuth and wanted something that was reasonably priced and close to downtown. This place was perfect. The hotel is an older style motor inn, but very clean and well maintained. Rooms were basic, with few frills (had a hair dryer, but no iron or coffee maker), but the... More

This motel is delightful! Reserved 10 rooms for a family reunion and they even welcomed the whole family on their "billboard"! Staff was welcoming, rooms and linens clean, the price was right and the landscaping screamed summer in color! Would definitely recommend this friendly facility!

We were extremely pleased with our stay at the Frankenmuth Motel. The rooms were very clean and the beds comfortable. Well kept grounds and helpful staff. The sign outside the motel welcomed our family for our reunion, which was pretty neat! This is a dog friendly place, which is nice know.

This little place is great! It served up fond memories of yesteryear when you pulled your car right up to your door and stayed in a motor lodge (motel) as opposed to todays high rise (and often times high priced) hotels. This place is very well kept, the beds were actually comfortable, the room was clean, and the staff and... More
