First trip to Frankenmuth and the Frankenmuth Motel. Was pleased with the quick check in. The lobby is clean and inviting and I noticed right away the availability of snacks, drinks, and a medicine shop in the lobby. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the pillows were very nice. My brother and his wife stayed in a... More

I stayed at Frankenmuth Motel for 4 nights. Once again it was another great stay. The Motel is always clean and accommodating. Although the breakfast is small it's just enough. There are plenty of good places to eat in Frankenmuth. I recommend Z's Chef Cafe in the basement of Zehnders. The food is always good and there are many choices.... More

Dawn & I typically stay at Frankenmuth Motel when there's availability but many years we end up wait-listed. This year, we were pleasantly surprised with updated room #39 which seems to undergone a recent remodel. The room "smells" clean and was very comfortable for three of us travelers. Awesome PILLOWS... you get your choice of the firm or fluffy-soft !!!... More

I freely admit that I am hotel snob. I haven't stayed in a motel for a long time. But I thought this seems like the perfect place to give it a try again. I was not disappointed. I saved some money over the larger chains and had a pleasurable experience. The front desk staff were very friendly. The check-in process... More

I have been coming to this hotel yearly for our annual shopping trip to Birch Run/Frankenmuth. The rooms are nothing fancy, but it is clean, quiet and out of the "busy" section of town. Bronners, Frankenmuth and Birch Run are all close . They updated with flat screen TVs and nice size refrigerators in the rooms.

THis place looks like an older motel but the rooms are roomy and really quite nice, comfortable beds, great pillows and over-all good value - located almost next door to Bronners and not far from town.

We stayed over night here and it was a great discovery. It was priced lower than any other hotel in the area. They staff was great and the room was spotless. It is close to both Bronners and downtown yet is is off the main drag. We will definitely stay there again. Love it.

Great place to stay! Close to everything....we will stay there again. Breakfast was a bit small but good. The room was very clean and the staff was extremely helpful. It was quiet at night so that you could get enough rest.

Our second time to Frankenmuth in the past 15 years, and we were just staying one night for an Anniversary trip. This place was very reasonable for a clean and close by stay. As other reviewers stated,,,the "Continental Breakfast" was extremely limited. Coffee, Tea and a few day old donuts and bagels. Not impressive. Would we stay here again...not likely.... More

I travel everywhere with my dogs. Consequently, I have stayed in many motels/hotels/bed & breakfast. I was charged $10 per pet per night which came out to $60 for three nights. I just don't believe they have to do three times the cleaning if you stay three night vs. one night. Based just on the unreasonably high pet fee, I... More
