“Bavarian Inn stay”
Reviewed 10 December 2013

We had a wonderful experience at the Bavarian Inn on December 7. We stayed in a suite that was beautiful. The bed was so comfortable and the bathroom was sparkling clean. The check in process was quick and easy. We will definitely come back. A great time!!

Just completed our annual visit to Frankenmuth and always stay at the Bavarian Inn. It is one of the most enjoyable, relaxing hotels I have stayed in and I have stayed in many. I can't say enough about it, the people are friendly, service is impeccable, pool area is great and the food is first class.
Can't wait to return.

We had 9 people in our family. I was very impressed with the food and the service of the Bavarian Inn. Being a holiday, there were very many people staying at the lodge. However everyone was cheerful, helpful and efficient. All went very smoothly.

Annually we come to shop, eat , and enjoy the scenery. Everyone is friendly and in a festive mood. We always enjoy our stay at the Bavarian Inn Lodge. The staff is friendly, professional, and courteous. We like the accommodations, though we wish the rooms were a little less pricey but do appreciate the value we get from our stay. We highly recommend the Bavarian Inn to all our friends.

Dear John F.,

Thank you for your Pure Michigan getaway to Frankenmuth and the Bavarian Inn Lodge! I am so very proud of our staff and appreciate your kind words towards their level of service to you as a couple. I am sensitive to your concern over price. I would encourage you to look at the benefits of the Bavarian Inn Perks Club as you will find additional value via this loyalty program when returning. Including STILL getting points on your last stay.

We appreciate your loyalty and enjoy serving you! Merry CHRISTmas!

With our Sincere Thanks,

We have stayed at quite a few of the hotels in the birch run/Frankenmuth area. Staying At the Bavarian inn just makes us know that we missed the best. The rooms are clean and the family histories make it special. The pools are great. We love swimming so the pools are important. The first night we ate in the restaurant. The four course meal was the best we had this whole time. Breakfasts are great as well. We highly recommend staying here for a great R & R. We will be back again. Hopefully soon.

Dear Denise P.,

Thank you so much for entrusting the Lodge with your couples get-a-way R&R recently! So glad you enjoyed the four course meal in Oma's. We LOVE to serve it as it is so FUN! Glad you like the special touches of the family histories. We do feel a closer bond to the community as the entire town helped make these histories and photos come to life in the 360 guestrooms. We look forward to serving you for YEARS to come!

Our family has been staying at the Bavarian Inn the weekend of Thanksgiving for the past thirty years. We gather from different parts of Michigan and meet there to start our Christmas season. I have always received the best service as well as clean rooms and all the entertainment I need, There is no need the leave the Inn after check in as everything is there. I always have the best meals in the family crest room of the Bavarian Inn restaurant. The best chicken dinner anywhere. The staff and all employees couldn't be any nicer. I also appreciate having the option of reserving the same rooms year after year as it makes it feel more like home. Two thumbs up!

Room Tip: There all good rooms, if you have kids ask for a room close to the game room and pool area.
