“Very happy with our choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

We stayed here for 2 nights before the Easter long weekend and I can truly say that we made the right choice in lodging. We were a bit afraid that all of the hotels here were going to be too "rustic". However, we were wrong. While the Bavarian Lodge definitely had a rustic feel, the rustic feel did not impact it's cleanliness in any way. The hotel felt very spacious and clean throughout despite its rustic decor.
The hotel is right across the street from the main thoroughfare, thus the location is perfect. The staff were extremely friendly throughout our stay. The hotel had numerous wonderful small touches-including a piano in the lobby, oatmeal cookies in the afternoon, and 24-7 coffee/tea (Tazo tea and Starbucks). They also had a large and up-to-date DVD collection full of the latest movies should you decide to make it an indoor evening. Breakfast was very satisfying. There was a full complement of both sweet and savory breakfast dishes to choose from. My favorite was the mini-waffles from the mini-wafflemaker.
Our room was equipped with a microwave and a bar fridge. My boyfriend really enjoyed the heated fan in the bathroom. For the ladies, there is a hairdryer and cotton swabs/pads to use as make-up removers.
Only downside: the computer in the lobby was VERY slow (like 512 mb RAM using Win XP)-almost unusable. My boyfriend couldn't log-in to his email. Not a dealbreaker because the Wifi otherwise was great throughout the hotel.
One more note: We didn't notice the construction noise to be an issue at all for us.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the first floor. The lobby can be noisy when the piano is going and people are...

This was an awesome hotel! We arrived early and our room was ready for us to check in. The lobby was very inviting with the couches and the fireplace. The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly, and told us everything we needed to know.
Love the coffee/tea/hot chocolate bar in the lobby open 24/7. Our stay included a wonderful breakfast bar, the beds and pillow were cushy comfy, and sitting in the hot tub has an amazing view of the snow-capped mountains!
Very clean well-kept hotel, I would for sure recommend!

Room Tip: Make sure you say you want the city view, otherwise it's a view of the parking lot. The front co...

We stayed 2 nights in summer 2013.

Lots of parking options despite some construction at the time. Front counter staff professional, efficient & friendly. One of the ladies even took our picture under the clock adjacent to the entrance! Had a jug of cool cucumber water available after a hot day of travel!

We had a room on the 4th floor in the rear. Upscale materials & surfaces plus a leather chair for a very reasonable price. Microwave, coffee maker, fridge and plenty of storage spaces. AC worked perfectly (this is a big deal having stayed in plenty of places were it either didn't function or was pathetic and/or loud). We didn't find that any touch or detail was missing.

Location right in the heart of the extremely pretty town of Leavenworth. Able to walk to everything including the park trails along the river.

Very personal and homey decor in the lobby with a big old fireplace, comfy seating, a piano with a bit of a history & the resident bears! Truly felt like spending some time in your living room at home despite other guests & staff coming and going. Try the board games or free DVD movies if you desire.

Breakfast buffet with many fresh & hot options included. Dining room doubled as a conference room so wasn't particularly intimate, but that is admittedly a minor quibble.

I would recommend that innkeepers from hotels & motels everywhere come here and take a few pointers back to their local establishments!

Wow - the moment you step inside this hotel you can tell that the owners and people who work there really care about the impression they give - from the friendly welcome to the great ambience and the attention to detail throughout the building and in all that the staff do. Leavenworth is perhaps a slightly quirky place but this hotel fits in well with the location. It was exceptionally clean and well cared for and I would go so far as to say it is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in and would happily recommend it to any of my friends travelling in this part of the world. The only downside was that we felt the help yourself continental breakfast, though well presented, lacked the sort of variety and quality that we might have expected from everything else in the hotel, but we are not often impressed by hotel breakfasts.

This is probably the best kid-friendly hotel at which we’ve every stayed. The staff was exceptional and very accommodating. They checked us in early, had a crib already set up in the room (no charge), and gave us activity recommendations. Additionally, the pool is extra warm (perfect for the littlest kids) and the included breakfast is fantastic. Way beyond your standard free hotel breakfast. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone, but especially families. It was superb.

Only two minor gripes: our room was on the second floor and there were lots of very energetic kids running up and down the halls at all hours. Hard to complain when we have two toddler ourselves, however. But just be aware that we heard a lot of noise through our door. The second issue was the pillows - too tall/full. We both woke up with neck aches the next morning. Those are pretty minor things and definitely wouldn’t stop us for visiting again.

Room Tip: The second floor goes directly out into the parking lot in back so is quite convenient for loading/u...

The Bavarian Loge is a relatively good place to stay in Leavenworth. However, the curtains let in a lot of light, and another downside is that the walls let through noise. The atmosphere is nice, though, and they have a wonderful breakfast selection.

Great Hotel with comfortable beds and high quality furnishings. You can tell the owners spend extra money on all the little things from the furniture to the towel racks. Its all these little things that make this a great hotel. The fireplace rooms are great. I would definitely return or recommend this hotel.

Also, really cool extra is they have a big DVD collection available for no additional cost to wind down the night.
