Visiting Frankenmuth Labor Day weekend , we stopped at the Chees Haus, purchased a few items and realized that we were at the first store on our shopping agenda for the day and what we bought could not be carried around in 85 degree weather and not spoil. We spoke with Karin at the Chees Haus, and she arranged for our purchase to be delivered to our hotel. When the package arrived at the Bavarian Inn, a very kind employee actually put the perishables in the mini refrigerator in our room.

Dear Suy Y.,

Thank you for your appreciation for some of the added value services we try to provide for our guests. As a huge fan of the cheeses and spreads of the Cheese Haus, I appreciate your wanting them to be kept chilled as required.

Thank you for sharing your appreciation and for staying with us!

Sincerely,

Jim Engel, C.O.O.

We spent 2 nights and a day at the Bavarian Inn and enjoyed the whole experience. The room was clean and neat and the view of the river was great. By the way, the beds were very comfortable (we had 2 full sized beds) and the pillows (2 firmnesses) and the elevators were always available (we were on the third floor). This was our first experience at the Inn. We've had their chicken dinners at the restaurant before, but never stayed at the Inn. Everyone that worked there seemed to always be smiling and happy. Always had our questions answered and were also asked if we needed anything else. Anyway, checking in and out was a breeze and the stay itself was a great Bavarian experience. The main shopping district was within walking distance and walking across the covered bridge was a new experience. We would definitely do it again.

Room Tip: The higher the floor the better the view.

LOVE the Bavarian Inn! My husband and I visit every few months and we won't stay anywhere else! The rooms are very clean and bathrooms are spotless! We always try to stay by the adult pool area...they have plenty of tables and chairs for reading drinking or just relaxing in hot tub! The staff are extremely friendly and helpful ! We have never been disappointed ever!

Room Tip: Always try to stay by adult pool area...quiet and relaxing right outside our door!

We had a very comfortable room with a king sized bed, an ample bathroom, and a beautiful view of the river on our balcony located on the 4th floor. The pools are very clean and well maintained and the Fun Room has many attractions as well as a putt putt golf course. The food was excellent at Oma's restaurant inside the Inn, the service through out the hotel was outstanding. We have come back to the Bavarian Inn Lodge many, many times and always have a wonderful time. Don't miss this jewel right here in Michigan.

Room Tip: The higher floors have excellent river views from the balconies.
