The Bavarian Inn is a very nice Boutique Hotel in Frankenmuth Michigan. It has a small Waterpark and an adult pool. It also has a quick service restaurant, a full service restaurant and a bar and lounge. It is conveniently located to shopping and Main Street Frankenmuth.

We decided to celebrate our 31st wedding anniversary in Frankenmuth and since 2000 we have always stayed at the Bavarian Inn Lodge. This celebration weekend was no different. Once again, staff were friendly, everything was clean, the room was ready before the actual check in time, good food choices, and always fun times in the Ratskeller. Our children came over... More

We once again have returned to this well run, comfortable and reasonably priced establishment. The staff are all so very efficient and welcoming. The onsite restaurant named "Oma's" offers a good menu of American and German dishes. My favourite is the Deutschland Burger and my wife preferred the steak salad. They have a lovely outdoor patio, well maintained grounds, ample... More

After waiting years to visit we left with a very bad taste in our mouths. The service was awful. House keepers were overheard complaining about their bosses and each other. Their on site restaurant was a terrible experience. The wait staff was so incredibly rude to our dinner guests who had been going there for years. Truly embarrassed the entire... More

We just happened across the hotel and decided on a whim to stay the night. We enjoyed the pools and the water slides are great. Our baby liked the fountains in the baby pool. We hope to return when our kids are older because the mini golf course and arcade would make a nice weekend family getaway.

From the moment of check-in you are made to feel welcome and genuinely appreciated as a guest. The staff is so friendly! This is our third time staying at the Bavarian Inn and they always seem to have something new and exciting to keep us entertained. Waterslides, mini golf, arcades, swimming...the list goes on. Great food options at reasonable prices... More

If you're looking for a very modern, fancy-pants hotel... this may not be for you. Bavarian Inn provides a comfortable, clean, excellent value for the price place to stay with a bounty of history, heritage, family friendly fun, great food and a truly unique experience from any other. The Zehnder family has put together an exceptional staff that provides customer... More
