I was excited to see if the Bavarian Inn still had the same magic it did back in 1997 when I stayed the first time. It did and more! The staff was great, room was perfect, and even in making the reservation on the phone was great! I cannot wait to come back!

I’ve never stayed anywhere else in Frankenmuth and we have been visiting for 30 years. Always friendly, always clean, always something to do. Even during a pandemic they have activities. Outside dining and music, outside arcade and years games. Way to go Bavarian Inn Lodge.

I took my 8 year old twins to the Inn for the week for their Birthday/Spring Break and we had an AMAZING time. This was the second time we have stayed this year and we are already planning our next visit. The entire team at the Bavarian Inn was very friendly and everything was sparkling clean, and the sanitation precautions that they took during COVID were top notch. We had so much fun and can't wait to stay there again!!!!

Dear Amrws7: Thank you for trusting our team during your visit in the middle of this pandemic. Seeing the word "memories" in a review just warms-our-hearts. That is our Purpose.

Room was clean. Making reservations for the pool was a bit cumbersome. Front desk told us someone was at pool area, and there was no one there. Back to front desk & they stated someone was there, went back down & still no one there. It took another 20 minutes for someone to show up. Overall, a nice get away with the kids for an overnight. No breakfast, but coffee is free at the gift shop until 10am.

Dear Laura, Thank you for your kind rating and your constructive criticism on this site. I apologize that the pool reservationist was not at the computer when you went to the pool. We have two pool "areas" and there should have been a person at both during swim times. Yes, we are providing free coffee from the gift shop during the time the CDC and American Hotel Associaiton are saying to pull all coffee makers from guestrooms in America. Thank you for your stay and we hope to serve you for YEARS to come! Yours in Service, Jim Engel, C.O.O. - Serving Bavarian Inn Guests for 45 Years - On behalf of the ENTIRE Bavarian Inn Lodge Team
