Restaurant only open for carry out due to limited staffing

ok

This place is like a city with in its self easy access to town but plenty to do at hotels many pools games food wonderful

The inn is older. The rooms were okay and I feel they need to be updated. Although, I know they are trying to have like an ‘old place vibe.’ The pools were awesome. Kids love it. The location of the inn is very accessible to get to every restaurant and shopping which is vey nice. I give it overall 4.5 stars.

We always have a great time

It was one of the most beautiful places I have been to. No complaints.

Disappointed that there was no free coffee service

The room smelled like smoke, my daughter was just at Cedar Point the week before and measured over 42 inches. On their measurement system for the waterslide, she measured like 39 inches which is wrong and she couldn't even go on with me. I think the hotel is overpriced. I would go to Frankenmuth again but I doubt i would pay to stay there again

A very nice to stay really enjoyed it.

It was packed need to get her earlier for parking, but we found a spot.

Had a wonderful sisters weekend! Enjoyed the adult pool and Oma’s restaurant

I liked the plentiful parking. The look and feel of the hotel was also great. Distance to town was easily walkable, but you'd also find plenty of parking downtown if you chose to drive. Plenty of public parking.

I have been to the Bavarian Inn on countless vacations and I always enjoy my stay. Due to Covid restrictions, hot tubs were closed.

Wonderful time. Lots to do even with the pools closed for Covid.

The property is old and overcrowded. In our room we found empty pop bottle, toys, and other miscellaneous trash. Was it even cleaned? For over two hundred dollars a night I expected better.

We loved staying here, the room was great. There is no continental breakfast.

Dear Ray, Thank you for choosing the Bavarian Inn Lodge during your recent visit to friendly Frankenmuth. I am sorry for the limited service in dining. There is a State wide shortage of servers and housekeeping in hotels and restaurants. We are working hard to get back to normal staffing levels. We appreciate your trust in our team and hope to serve you whenever you crave anything that we and the Community has to offer. Sincerely, Jim Engel, C.O.O. Bavarian Inn Lodge

Dear Guest, Thank you for your recent stay and your adjusted 4.5 score on this site. Our theme is old-world. We work hard though to not have OLD STUFF in our guestrooms. Our décor and theme will stay the same for the next 35 years, but we reinvest several million dollars every year into keeping our theme fresh. So glad that you enjoyed the family focused amenities offered. We hope to serve you whenever you crave anything Frankenmuth has to offer! With Sincere Appreciation, Jim Engel, C.O.O.

Thank you so much for your PERFECT rating on this site and for choosing the Bavarian Inn Lodge. I am so sorry that you did not learn thru our website, at check-in or from the letter in your room that we DO IN FACT have free coffee service. Since the CDC and Health Department asked us to remove coffee makers, we provided free premium coffee in our Martha's Gift Shop every morning since we have reopened last June. We hope to serve you and your family for many years to come - whenever you crave anything Frankenmuth has to offer. Yours in Service, Jim Engel, C.O.O. - Serving Bavarian Inn Guests for 44Years -

Dear Guest, I reconfirmed the measurements on our Willy Boards by the slides. They are exactly 42 inches. I am sorry you experienced inconsistency. We do work very hard to be competitive with all hotels in Frankenmuth as well as all waterpark hotels in the mid-west. If you traveled Memorial weekend, there was no discounting to be had at any hotel coming out of this pandemic. Sincerely, Jim Engel, C.O.O. Bavarian Inn Lodge
