Decided to do a quick overnight here and it was totally worth it. We took our 2 year old here and he had so much fun, there were a lot of water things here to keep him busy, he didn't want to leave. We were able to stay in a room on the first floor that faces the waterpark, the... More

The fact anyone can buy passes to use the park is annoying. We paid big bucks to stay at the hotel and eat there. Only to have know where to sit and to many crowds. The life guards on duty were a joke so definitely keep close eye on your kiddos.... We won't be back

Took my son for his 13th birthday to splash village to stay and play. The hotel is nice, a little pricey! The water slides are fun and the lazy river is a great place to relax. It would be nice if they had a lazy river just for adults.

We went to Zehnder's for a last short trip before the start of school. We have 5 kids ages 20,14, 11,7, and 4. My father in his 60s came with us. We chose to go with the Sleep and Eat package. The room was a loft with extra half bath. The room came with a microwave and mini fridge. When... More

Our room was clean and adequate for our overnight stay (family suite with balcony) but not really roomy enough for us for more than one night. It's on the pricey side (in the 350 range for a Wednesday night) but our rate did include our water park admission for four, breakfast at the hotel (buffet style), and family style dinner... More

Probably the most updated rooms in all of Frankenmuth. It's nice to have a small fridge and microwave in the room. Housekeeping staff appears to clean the microwave with a dirty chemical rag as it reeked terribly upon use. Once I cleaned it again myself there was no problem. Front desk staff is great and very knowledgeable. Please update your... More

Hotel room was clean and updated. Water park was awesome for the whole family. Staff was very friendly. At 200 dollars a night for the four of us, I thought that it was a good deal. Had dinner at the restaurant inside the hotel, was reasonable pricing and good pizza. We're already talking about going back!!
