We stayed in a river front family suite and it was a great deal with the wedding block rate. Saved nearly $100! The pools, restaurants and putt putt were great for adults and for the kids.
While my husband and I attended the wedding we had a friend stay with our two children in the room. The reception room was connected right to the hotel! It was very convenient to have the room so accessible.

Our kids 8 and 10 had a grand time with both water slides. They are fast. Pool staff works diligently to keep kids safe. The kids also enjoyed the huge selection of arcade games and collecting tickets to turn in for prizes. Didn't have time for the miniature golf, table tennis, workout room or the tennis courts. Despite the number of kids and families staying at the inn, it is quiet in the hallways and rooms. The adults only pool area is well away from the kids. The stores are well stocked with items you'd actually want to buy. Several choices for eating on the premises but of course you're just a short walk to the restaurant and bakery. Rooms were comfortable and clean
Staff throughout the lodge were helpful and friendly. Would stay again. The chicken is awesome. Even enjoyed watching the history and past Frankenmuth events videos on the lodge's on tv channels.

Room Tip: we stayed on the second floor overseeing the parking lot and heard nothing.

Great family venue. Pools, arcades, restaurant and a gift shop all in one. The food and service in the restaurant were very good. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The convention center was very pleasant. The hot tub could have been a little warmer. The location was great for shopping and dining. Overall a very nice place to stay with a strong German influence.

We returned to the Bavarian Inn Lodge once again for a "birthday" get-a-way. This was probably our 4th visit and each time was very enjoyable. The large, traditional German lodge is complete with multiple pools, (including an adults only pool and whirlpool), whirlpools, 18 hole mini-golf, large updated arcade area for all ages, restaurants, lounge, gift shops. The friendly staff dressed in German attire go out of their way to make sure your stay is great. The rooms named after German settlers to the area, are all very well maintained and nicely decorated, including pictures and written history of that German family.
During our stay, we enjoyed a King whirlpool suite. It was very nice and spacious with a sitting room complete with sofa-bed, stuffed chair, flat panel TV, desk and chair. The bath was very spacious including a glass enclosed shower complete with shower head and two additional shower arrays in the wall. The bath also included a large whirlpool bath with electronic controls. Besides the very nice vanity, there is a bonus vanity outside the bathroom.

Of course, there are many shops and attractions within walking distance or a short drive. Enjoy your stay!

I haven't gone on a trip with my sister since we were little. We choose to go to Frankenmuth and stay at the Bavarian Inn Lodge. Nothing is better. It's a little taste German culture. The rooms are clean, each room has pictures and a history about the family it's named after. The guest staff is friendly and helpful, the food is excellent. The fun center is a blast for the kids and parents who just want to see a big smile on the children's faces. If you are thinking of going to Frankenmuth this is the place to stay. I signed up for the Fun Perks card so I get money back for my stay. Forgot to take a couple of things for my trip and the gift shop had what I was missing. The room was priced right and my sister and I couldn't pass up the low rate to stay an extra day. It was the best time. Make the Bavarian Inn Lodge your choice on your next visit.

Room Tip: Look on the internet, there are a variety of choices for rooms and packages.

We had a great weekend, the champagne and cheese tray waiting in the room upon our arrival was a nice touch! The entire Bavarian Inn Lodge staff was extremely friendly and outgoing to make sure our stay was perfect. The onsite activities are second to none and does not warrant leaving, however any local town activity was just a short walk away. We had a blast with Frankenmuth's Gnome Hunt and we highly recommend to all .... we look forward to returning to the Bavarian Inn Lodge and Frankenmuth in the near future.

Room Tip: The view from the river view room balconies are outstanding
