“Good price, not close to downtown.”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

Stayed here for one night during Christmas visit with family. Map shown this hotel to be next to Marv Hetzog motel when in fact I should of checked the address, it is not within walking distance to downtown shops. This motel is located at the "y" where left takes u to downtown, and right takes u to Bronners and post office etc. Hotel is located to the right. A bit secluded but clean. Rooms have no frig or microwave, beds are real hard with flat pillows but clean non the less. Continental breakfast we did not partake, but the nice frontdesk man let us get some some nighttime coffee and use the toaster. Overall worth it. No frills sleep.

I chose this motel because it was reasonably priced and it is pet-friendly. Note that pet-reservations need to be made directly with the motel; This can't be done online with them.

We stayed Christmas night after visiting family in the area. The room was clean and simple. We were placed in a room near the dog run, which I appreciated. I don't think that I would choose the motel again, at least not in the winter. I would have preferred a thermostat rather than the wall heater/ac unit. I slept in the bed near the window and had to get up a number of times to regulate the temperature in the room.

The continental breakfast in the morning was very, very basic. Toast, bagels, muffins, a basic danish-type pastry. There was OJ, coffee, and hot water for tea or cocoa. I asked for a high-chair for our littlest. They told us that they didn't have one, but managed to find one in storage and wiped it off some for us.

Overall, the motel (as compared to other motels - not the Ritz Carlton) was adequate. We came, we slept, we left.

Room Tip: The dog run is between Room #63 and #64.

Our experience after reading reviews about this motel we both agreed that it was a surprise. The motel is no frills type of place to stay. The motel was an adequate place to stay. The motel offered only shampoo for the shower which was aged. The rooms could use a makeover as the decor is dated, although the room was clean. In good walking weather it would still be a hike to the town area, but there is parking about the town and driving from the motel is a short distance. The continental breakfast is very basic and we did not make use of it. I was abit let down as I thought it was going to be better then I thought it was :(

Room Tip: I would say that if your travelling with children or are looking for a hot tub or the like you need...

Everything here was perfect! Nice size rooms, very clean, and super nice staff! It is a great price and right down the road from downtown frankenmuth and bronners christmas store-like the biggest and most beautiful christmas store in the world I think! Such a cozy and peaceful town. They also offer pet rooms which was perfect for us! 10 out of 10 for me! Loved our stay!

we are frequent guests of the Frankenmuth Motel ! we travel to Frankenmuth several times a year and always stay at this cozy little motel. It is located close to all of the tourist attractions but yet away from all of the noise and hustle & bustle of the main street in town. The rooms are always clean and very spacious . Love the new flat screen T.v.'s as well !!! we travel a lot and I can honestly say that we have never come across a motel where the " house keeping girls " drive by and wave with a huge smile on their face ! Sandy @ the front desk is just the most friendly person you will ever meet and goes out of her way to make sure your stay is a pleasant and comfortable one !! They even have pet friendly rooms !! We love the Frankenmuth Motel and would recommend that you give it a try !!

Clean Room, Great price, very happy with my stay. Only 1 negative thing, when we walked into our room it was very, very, very hot, the housekeepers must turned up the heat full blast and did not turn it off when done cleaning the room. Had the window open, door open and the air going for a couple hours to cool it off.
