"Great Place for a Family Weekend Make Your Kids Happy!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5

"Expensive and tired large hotel."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Huge facility with very long hallways and ample parking. Rooms are a bit tired with older furnishings. TV in our rooms was very large and modern. Beds were clean and comfortable. Staff was non existent by the pools and pool areas. No staff to be found in the game area to help out. Long wait for food in many areas and a lack of kid friendly snacks. Shocked at how hard it was to find ice cream! Lots of missed opportunities by the facility to cash in on hungry kids. Our friend who is handicapped had a hard time navigating all the hallways with his cane. We rented a wheelchair for him at $10 a day. Found out later that there was a battery powered wheelchair option that was not offered to us at $35 per day. Not really a handicapped accessible property. But, we figured it out. Very crowded in all common areas. We won't be going again. Ever.

"Love the Bavarian Inn…."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We come here at least two three times a year. Love it! But this last time our TV in the room had a lot of issues and they sent maintenance but he couldn't fix it. I was very disappointed that we were just left with the TV like this. I do suggest that you should have more options on your food menu other than the limited items. Ex: sandwiches, lighter meals etc.. but I do love coming here.

"Everything you need, all in one place."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I was incredibly lucky to stay at the Bavarian Inn Lodge for a wedding. And it was a fantastic experience! The rooms were charming, each one named after a family from Frankenmuth history, with awards, images and personal histories on the family members. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly and the rooms were clearly kept cleaner. The food options in the lodge and in the downtown area within a three minute walk is beyond delicious. 10/10 can't wait to come back!

"Had a great time!"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The room was awesome, although a bit cold just outside the door. The refrigerator was set too high so our beverages froze solid. This may want to be adjusted (room 1106 "VanFleet") The beds were a bit soft for me, but you can't make it perfect for everyone I do understand. Other than that, all was good!

"Fun place to stay."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Came here for my sisters wedding. Fun time for everyone. THe hotel staff are very nice and professional. My only issue is the thermostats in the rooms do not allow the guests to turn them off. For those with sinus issues this can be a problem. Breakfast at the Oma restaurant was tasty. The potato pancakes are really delicious.

"Is There A Rating Above five Stars?."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We recently stayed at The Bavarian Inn of Frankenmuth for the first time while visiting the area's tourism sites. My wife and I have stayed at 3,4 and five Star Resorts all along The East Coast from Key West to Northern Canada and found The Bavarian Inn surpassed our expectations in all aspects of our stay with them from the charming atmosphere, cleanliness to the informative, courteous and professional staff. We also found The Town of Frankenmuth to be equally pleasant and friendly. We look forward to staying again in the near future and bringing our extended family with us for a longer visit. Sincerely, B. Bowman CEO Family Trust LLC.,.
