“Very Nice”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Zehnder's Splash Village is a very nice hotel and waterpark. It has the big hotel name amenities with a family owned feeling. We stayed two nights and took our three year old daughter. I have NEVER seen her so happy in all her life. She was smiling ear to ear the whole time and loved everything. We got pizza from the hotel and it was very good. Much better than we expected. We also ate at the breakfast buffet each morning and they put out quite the spread. Plenty of sweets to choose from which I loved. I will definitely stay here again if we visit Frankenmuth with kids!

Four kids and two adults and we all had fun! The kids loves the watermark, the adults liked the pool. Lots to entertain the kids. The room was great - clean and comfortable. Lots of room to sleep and play. The food was barely ok for adults. Overall, a great experience.

This is a great place for a family with young children. I believe children up to maybe 14 or so would really enjoy this park. It is all indoors, so weather is not an issue. There are many lifeguards around and the 5 year old with us could go off on his own and do the smaller water slides and lazy river. He could go on the big slide with an adult and life jacket. The 8 year old could go on the big slide alone. They had a very large inner tube with handles around them and it is all very safe. Even an area for little ones. We had a suite at the attached hotel which had a bedroom upstairs, plus 3 TV's, a fridge and microwave, not to mention the fireplace!! This package included a family style chicken dinner and our breakfast the second day. We all had a lot of fun!

Room Tip: If you could afford the suite for one night, I do believe it was worth it. The kids really enjoyed...

We booked our first trip since the twins were born to Zehnder's Splash Village Hotel & Waterpark. The twins being only 2 and half years old are quite a handful plus an older brother (he's 9) makes it a challenge to get out. Nevertheless, we had an awesome time, everyone had so much fun and we experienced the best hospitality I have seen anywhere in a long time. From the time I booked my reservation, to getting early access to the family suite room (close to the lobby, super convenient), and being allowed 30 minutes after check-outime to leave the room, the hotel staff was so personable and accomodating. We did the 2-night Splashtastic package (7/17-7/19/13) which includes two dinners and two breakfasts and waterpark passes for both days. The restaurant, rooms and waterpark was very clean. Lifeguards were everywhere keeping the waterpark in order and the arcade was fun too!

I think this is perfect for kids 12 and under, it is smaller but the perfect size for families with smaller children. I understand they are working on an outdoor waterpark/pool right now so it will only get better. Overall, an A+ experience. My older son keeps asking me when can we go back :-)

Room Tip: Family suite close to the lobby is convenient when you have little ones. Make this request when you...

I brought my son and daughter-in law and 4 grandkids, 11,9, and twins 5 for a one night stay 2nd weekend of July. Everyone had a great time. Staff was very friendly and helpful and splash area was well monitored by life guards. The breakfast at Elf Hollow was one of the best I have seen offered both in selection and quality was excellent. The shuttle service offered to town is a bonus especially when travelling with kids. We had a suite along with the Splash and eat package,which was pricey I thought, but they are my grandkids so once won't hurt. ;) The kids enjoyed the Splash Park, however, when the crowds came in Friday night, it was pretty crowded and hard for the little ones to have space to play in the water. Definitely need a separate area for the teens to play. The suite was well appointed, view of parking lot, however we couldn't have been further away from the Splash Park, Arcade, Elf Hollow. We were on the 2nd floor and at the furthest spot from the action. A long walk for the kids and grandma. Even with the elevator it was a fair distance. Rooms were comfortable and clean, although seemed a bit dated. All in all it was a good get-a-way and for my son's family first visit, it was a success. I look forward to seeing the new waterpark opening next year.

Decided to take the family as a last minute trip and what a great decision to stay here. The room was updated and more than I had expected, the splash park was clean, well maintained and well staffed with lifeguards that kept the chaos to a minimum. If there was one drawback, it would be the prices in the restaurant and bar. I understand you're a captive audience but the prices bordered on a professional sports venue. Bring a cooler full of stuff and leave it in your room. But the extended availability of the water park made up for it.

Service was great, staff professional and friendly. Very clean. We spent five hours enjoying the water slides and overall splash village. The food was great with everything needed. Arcade area was clean and well maintained. Many options for the kids and adults too enjoy.
