4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2011

I've stayed in Leavenworth a few times now and have to say the Bavarian Ritz has been the best value so far. Located right where all the shopping and restaurants are makes it very convenient to go back to the room for pit-stops, short rests, or whatever else. The manager (Jay) was totally awesome. We arrived 3 hours early and he got us a room right away and made us feel welcome. Parking is easy for patrons and is included in the room price. The room was good size (Jacuzzi King) and comfortable. WiFi worked fine. Coffee was supplied but no dedicated room service for meals and such...we didn't miss it. You can contact the front desk and they are very responsive to your needs. We used the in-room fridge which we stocked from the local bavarian-decked-out Safeway and ate out like you are suppose to do on vacation. The room and bathroom were clean enough for even me...I'm kind of a germaphobe.

Oh yeah, right behind the hotel is a great park with nature walks and beach access to play in the Wenatchee River. LOL...its cold water being glacier fed, but its fun to splash around in or tube down during the summer. We sat on the beach and just enjoyed the view later in the day. It was a nice break from all the hard-core touristy stuff :)

Its a great value when you weigh it all. If you are going to Leavenworth just to sit around in a super cushy hotel room or lodge this may not be the place for you, but if you are looking for great value with a decent 3+ rating right in the middle of everything, the Bavarian Ritz will add to your Leavenworth experience. Did I mention the convenient location!

By the way, I forgot my $400.00 cell phone in the room and didn't notice until I was three hours away. I contacted the front desk and Jay personally checked the room for me and found it under the bed (don't ask how it got there). He had it mailed back to me within three days for a small fee that was very fair. Now that is awesome. Thanks Jay!

Nice room! Huge, Sleigh style King bed and a jacuzzi in the room which accommodated a relaxing bath while watching the news after a long day.The staff helped with with a smile when I made extra requests. I'd stay again.... And It's right in the middle of town and still quiet! They have dedicated parking which is a big deal in busy little Leavenworth.

We stayed in the 2 bedroom suite, which has 2 separate rooms each with a queen bed. If you have back problems or are disabled, this is not the place for you. After check in, you have to lug your bags yourself up about 20 steps to the second floor. From the steps up throughout the halls is all old blue carpeting with lavender colored walls, there was no help offered with our bags, as I believe there was only one person there that checked us in. We were given keys for the room (real keys!).. The room is in bad need of upgrading. It is all carpeted, mismatched furnishings, soiled upholstery on the chairs. Old linoleum floor in the bathroom. However the rooms were clean and linens were fine. I will post pictures which speak for themselves. The most unbelievable feature was the outdoor deck, which was peeled plywood and rail posts that were rotted. The view was fine looking off to the distance but don't look down on the slum which surrounds below. There is no river view, but it isn't far, it is obscured by brush. Our room was 208, right next to the deck, and the door going out to the deck slammed hard every time someone came in or out, and there is a bar nearby that gets loud; however it does close around 11:00 p.m. If you stay here just hope that your neighbors don't decide to party out on the deck or you will not sleep.

The manager was nice, we requested wine glasses which were brought up quickly, and they fixed the aluminum shade in our son's room which wouldn't shut.

It does look like the king room is nicer, we did get a peek at it from the hall as we walked by. Still, I don't believe it would be worth the price. If the hotel would put some money into remodeling it could be a great property. The location is excellent, walking distance to town, and a great new sushi restaurant just below.

My husband and I reserved the Royal King Suite for a second honeymoon. It was everything we hoped for and more. Room was clean and elegant. Atmosphere was wonderfully romantic.. The view was breathtaking. The building is older, but that is a part of it's charm. Where else can you get old world charm and elegance without going to Europe. The bed was wonderful.

We booked the two bedroom suite for Memorial Day weekend, as we were going to Leavenworth with another couple, and from the pictures it looked great! In reality, the suite is a room with two beds. The windows were full of cobwebs, had no screens and looked right onto the "sundeck" (which is a deck with paint peeling off the particle board), needless to say we couldn't open the windows to air out the smelly stuffy room without strangers looking right into our bedroom. No curtains, so when the sun rises at 4:30 am, you better be up and ready to go. I've slept on more comfortable beds and stayed in better rooms at a Motel 6 for $140 less.

The Bavarian Ritz was a budget choice for this Thursday, and, given the price, it met all of our expectations. Pet friendly, a clean, comfortable room, lounge chairs upstairs and a deck in back for me to work at night and in the early morning. Friendly, helpful staff. It is one block from the bandstand in Leavenworth with convenient parking across the street. Wi-Fi worked great. Bathroom a bit dated with low shower head and tiny sink. Front desk is not staffed weekdays after eight, but they made phone contact and had someone meet us when we arrived late. Good, hot coffee and hot water for tea was out by 6:00 AM. No breakfast available, but microwave, dorm fridge, candles and incense in every room.

Room Tip: Their Queen Standard rooms have no view.

We stayed at the Bavarian Ritz durring the Ice Fest - one of the busiest times of the year and I am happy to say they didnt miss a beat. They made sure we had everything we needed and more.This place is older and I think that provides to the charm. The rooms are so nice and have lots of space and amazing views. I wanted to take the tub home with me. We had an amazing time, and cant wait to go back. What an absolultly perfect romantic getaway.
This place is a gem and I cant give them enough stars!!
Thanks
