"FINE GEM FOR A WINTER GET-A-WAY"
We recently spent 3 days and two nights mid week here and were very happy with the accommodations. The three pools all have hot tubs beside them and one has the coolest kid area with the big slide that is covered and all kids love. We enjoyed the adult only pool as well. We enjoyed our retreat time in this little piece of Bavaria in Frankenmuth!!! Everyone is so friendly and happy you are there!!

"AMAZING ANNIVERSARY"
I have been coming here since I was born, and my parents would come every year since they met. I thought it would be fun to spend a relaxing time and enjoy ourselves at the Bavarian Inn for my anniversary. And I was right! We had an amazing time, as always, and even though this was my first time coming here as an adult, I had just as much fun, if not more. The room was beautiful, the pools were clean, and if you don't mind being surrounded by children having fun then this place is the perfect hotel for an anniversary getaway!

"GREAT PLACE TO STAY WITH A FAMILY"
this is our go to place for a short getaway. Always clean, the service is great and it's got a lot for the kids to do. Indoor arcade, mini golf, several pools (including adult only if you are traveling without children) and water slides. In the evening they do family karaoke in the fun center. I recommend staying here if you like a nice hotel, great staff and good value!

We had our family vacation at Bavarian Inn Lodge last week... everyone had a wonderful time! All of the pools and water slides were great. The staff throughout the lodge and restaurants are very nice and helpful. We are so impressed with the high level of customer service whenever we visit. We enjoyed the food and service at all 3 restaurants. Singing and dancing with Marty at the Lorelei Lounge was great, and we also had fun with the Chinese New Year. We decided to join the Perks Club and now have coupons to use for our next visit!

We have been going to Frankenmuth for about 30 years now,and have been staying at the Lodge for about 20 years. It has always been a great place to stay. The staff are the best and there is so much to do for the kids and adults. When we think of Frankenmuth, we think of the Bavarian Inn Lodge - that's the place to stay.

Trust Me... You Won't Be Disappointed!

This place was perfect! Rooms were clean, staff was friendly and helpful. Pools were amazing and the arcade is fabulous! Brunch on Sunday is a must... We spent my triplets 8th bday there with 13 total family members. We've now decided this has to become an annual event! I'm a pretty picky traveler, so for all you questioning this hotel... Trust me, you won't be disappointed!

“PA "A Great Place For A Birthday Celebration"”
Three adults, three teens and a sixteenth birthday party. There was something for everyone, from an adults only pool to huge water slides and pools for the teens.We all had a blast, the birthday girl had a memorable time and best of all, not once did I hear, " I'm bored". Thanks to a great staff!

"AMAZING GIRLS WEEKEND OUT" We had an awesome time. The place was kept very clean. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. My daughter choked on a cold tablet and spewed orange juice all over the bed. They had new bedding to my room in just a few minutes of my call to the front desk. There was one male employee I wish i would have gotten his name who was always busy and always had the well being of the guests in mind. We will be changing our Yearly girls weekend out to Bavarian inn Lodge. I can not wait until next year. Thank you to all of you for making this a great weekend. Wouldn't trade this weekend for anything.

Not only was the staff extremely helpful and friendly, the hotel itself was very accommodating. I came with my family of six, kids ages ranging from 8-2 and there was something for everyone to enjoy. The rooms were very spacious and so it was still enjoyable being in our room too. Overall a great time had by all and can't wait to go back soon!

"FUN WITH GRANDDAUGHTERS"
Spent 2 nights with our 3 granddaughters over Christmas break. This was our 2nd stay with them here. We had a great time. Plenty for the girls to do. They love the pools, arcade, games & dancing in the Lorelei lounge & karaoke in the Ratskellers. We didn't leave the lodge for the 2 nights because of the cold weather. Stayed in a family suite on the fun center level which was perfect. Nice refrigerator in suite but could definitely use a microwave in room to heat leftovers from meals. Plan on staying with them 3 nights next Christmas break and attending New Year's Eve celebrations.

“Planned on one night and stayed for two!”

This was one of the best hotel/resort experiences that we have had. It was really unique to be able to step into a hotel and feel like you are in another part of the world! The staff was awesome from the check in to the games room and everywhere else. Good food and lots to do without even leaving the hotel. The water slides were fun for little kids through to adults! We planned to stay for one night and were able to book a second night although it was very busy during the winter festival in Frankenmuth. We felt very welcomed when, Kim, one of the managers of the hotel asked if he could assist us at the front desk and took the time to speak with us and our kids casually and ask us questions about our stay. Considering the level of service we received-even during a sold out hotel-we are already anticipating our next trip back!

"I Felt Like I Was At A Couples Resort"

We have stayed at the Bavarian Inn Lodge multiple times over the years usually with our kids. We have always had a fantastic time. Kids absolutely love it. BUT this was a weekend away for just my husband and I for Snow Fest and his birthday. Our room was a walkout to the adult pool courtyard. And as much as I loved taking the kids there in the past, I would have never known there were kids in the lodge. I felt like I was at a couple's resort.

We spent a wonderful evening in the Lorelei lodge with fabulous service and wonderful entertainment.

We will definitely be coming back.

"FABULOUS SERVICE"
Probably the fastest, most efficient check-in and check-out I have ever experienced. Staff very helpful and go out of their way to assist. Lots of kids activities but just as enjoyable for folks like us without kids.
