*Buyer Beware* We just spent good $ for 2 nights in their family suite. Last night, both bathroom toilets began overflowing shortly before 10pm. Now, we had done nothing that would cause them to overflow. Housekeeping handed my husband a plunger. Now, being a principal of a middle school he is no stranger to plunging toilets. Needless to say, nothing was working. After 30 mins we called again and notified them that there must be something wrong with the hotel’s plumbing. Front desk said “oh, yeah, you’re like the 6th room in 15 mins to tell us that. We’re sending maintenance to you.” Well, being that it’s now after 10:30pm, the 6 year old is overly tired and quite a bit cranky at this time. Thirty mins later after no show with maintenance, we call back. They inform us that something is wrong with main plumbing and they’re working to fix it. Maintenance finally shows and at this time the toilets begin to explode water everywhere!!! Literally shooting water up out of the toilets. We have two bathrooms in our suite so we have 2 toilets with water gushing everywhere. Maintenance explains that a fuse blew to their pump and so did the fuse that sounds the faulty pump alarm. It’s now after 11pm and the water is fixed, but we have toilet water everywhere. He comes back with a mop & bucket and a abrasive cleaner to clean up with toilet water and hands us a garbage bag of towels and leaves. My husband then is now using the towels to try and dry up the floors. In the meantime, my asthma is now triggered by the harsh chemicals that were used in the cleaner and the ventilation in the room is terrible. Hotel says there are no other rooms to move us to. I am up most of the night and have an extremely bad headache from the chemical smells. This morning we speak to the manager, Bill, who says he’ll offer us one hour later check-out and use of water park until 4pm (which we can’t use anyway since we had to leave for our next destination); or a weak $50 credit. Then they sent us a cleaning bill for $150?! The room was left pristine, the deep cleaning happened from 11-12 midnight as the toilets were backing up. You’ve got to be kidding me! We’ve also reached out the GM, Doug, without a response yet. Completely unacceptable!

I took my grandkids and they loved it. The price was excellent and the room was very nice and quiet and had a mini fridge and a microwave in it. Staff was great and helpful. The town of Frankenmuth is beautiful and there are so many things to do for all ages.

Nice rooms. They were working on updating the hallways when I was there. Definitely do their best to keep up on the place. Water park is a lot bigger than expected. Lifeguards are pretty much everywhere. Definitely a little pricey but if you are going just for the water park it's worth it. Nice arcade as well, also a little expensive. Definitely a great place to take family and kids to.
