“great price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Located near the main street of Frankenmuth. Spacious room, quit surroundings. The "breakfast" was only a small pastry that didn't look very fresh and coffee. Very nice overall for the price. Walking to shops and restaurants might be too much for non-walkers.

We always stay at the Frankenmuth Motel when we visit the area. Staff is very friendly, rooms are reasonably priced, and the location is convenient to both Frankenmuth and Birch Run. Remember this is an older motel, it is clean and fairly well maintained but does have dated decor. It is great for our family, we love driving through Bronner's next door at night to see all the Christmas lights.

This was our 2nd year staying at the Frankenmuth Motel. My mom brings my sisters and me every year. We have stayed at many of the other hotels around Frankenmuth and LOVE to stay here. The staff treats you like family not just a guest. It is an older hotel so the walls have a few dents and dings. The rooms are very clean, some with mini fridges and WONDERFUL beds. Great location with easy load/unloading right in front of your room. No waiting for an elevator or long walk with lots of bags. Easy getting in and out of the motel since it's off the main drag with very little traffic. Hot coffee and cocoa in the office all day. Breakfast has coffee, cocoa, juice, toast, mini muffins, bagels, and sticky buns. Wish we had found this gem 10 years ago. Great Stay, Great Price!

Room Tip: Go for a room with a mini fridge and bring a few drinks with you to relax after a long day of shoppi...

This is a motel. If you want a full service hotel, this is not for you. However, if you want a great place to stay that is very quiet, and where you can sleep comfortably at a reasonable price, then this place is for you. You can pull right up to your door and be nestled down in minutes. The staff are very friendly and the rooms are clean and comfortable for the price. You can be in the heart of Frankenmuth in minutes from your room. But, you are not on the main drag so you are shielded from the hustle and bustle. Black Forest Brewery is nearby if you want to walk to a restaurant. You are also very close to Bronner's. For me, this is a winning combination! I love this little quiet motel. I can't give it 5 stars because it's just not a five star property, but for what it is, it's Franken-Tastic! :)

This is a no frills motel which offers the basics at a reasonable price. It is close to the downtown, but off the main drag so it is quiet. Cars can be parked near the door of the room so loading and unloading of luggage is not a problem.

Reservations, check in and check out were fast and efficient.

Breakfast is minimal, but hot coffee is available. The motel is located very close to Bonners Xmas store.

We've been coming to Frankenmuth for years and stayed either downtown or Birch Run area. This motel is ideally located just off the main highway and is very clean. New beds as of this year, everything you could ask for in a hotel room. Pretty basic breakfast, but it is not a big deal to us. Plus we learned the very reasonable price is consistant year round regardless of the event in town.

We love it, I come every year for about 20 years or so with my Mom, sister, sister-in-laws and now my nieces are joining us. We tried staying other places but came back to Frankenmuth Motel and now wouldnt' stay any where else. Its clean quiet and people are all very nice. Love the location and ability to get joint rooms.
