“Memorial Day weekend was a treat”
Reviewed 30 May 2011

This was our first trip to Frankenmuth, and when we return, we will be staying again at the Marv Herzog Hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful with local recommendations. Most rooms have a balcony, as did ours, so we were able to watch the fireworks from the balcony and the parade. The room is large and well appointed, with a rather large bathroom, too. It was quiet there. A couple of the other hotels in the town look geared toward families with little kids, but the Marv Herzog was great for us adult weekend vacationers. It is in walking distance of almost all of the town's major attractions (about a mile or so from Bronner's Christmas store...go there in your car since you will buy a lot!). The morning breakfast buffet (with make it yourself waffles) is available until 10 a.m., which makes it particularly nice if you are having a leisurely morning. Lastly, whether you enjoy polka or not, the collection of Marv Herzog memorabilia is fun to look at in the lobby and in your room.

This was our first trip to Frankenmuth, MI. We were looking for a quiet Hotel and we found it. One of the nicest and clean hotels we've stayed in. Comfortable bed, beautiful all white linen. Breakfast was ok. Underground parking a plus and the complementary
happy hour was a very nice touch. This hotel was a little pricy but we would definitely
stay there again.

This is our second trip to Frankenmuth, and we really enjoyed staying at the Marv Herzog. It is located within walking distance of everything - like most hotels in Frankenmuth. The hotel was quiet and peaceful. The room was comfortable and very clean. Soft bed with lovely soft sheets... it was like sleeping in a cloud. The complimentary breakfast and afternoon drinks/snacks was a very nice perk. I'd gladly stay at this hotel again. Free wi-fi and free parking (that's a rare treat!) Not a single complaint.

Room Tip: Get a room in the back overlooking river.

We’re regulars in Frankenmuth, but this was our first stay at this hotel. We enjoyed it. Our room was fresh, comfortable and quiet. The hotel is a relaxing environment and the staff is super helpful. The room rate included drinks (beer/wine/soft drinks @ 2 per guest) and snacks (pretzels/chips/veggies) in the evening and a small breakfast buffet in the morning. To be honest, the beverages, snacks and buffet are mediocre. Bud Light was the only beer available (kinda weird for a town like Frankenmuth), snacks are limited to chips and a few fresh veggies and glasses/dinnerware are all disposable. The location is good; very near downtown attractions.

We stayed at this hotel twice last year and I am confused by some of the reviews. We were never asked to fill out a paper and specify what items we would like for breakfast and to pick out a time we wanted to eat in 15 minute increments, I find this hard to believe. Our first stay there was during Snowfest 2010 and the hotel was full, we were not asked to fill anything out. Our second stay was last month a few days before Christmas. It was great to walk around see the lights etc. & return to our room to soak in the Jacuzzi great location! As for the TV being old...I didn't really pay attention, but I know it wasn't black and white ;-) The bed was comfortable both times and the toilet paper didn't hurt our butts. This will be the only place we will ever stay when we visit Frankenmuth.

The Marv Herzog Hotel in Frankenmuth has it all! From covered and secure parking to a complimentary happy hour, our stay here was perfect! The rooms are clean and well appointed, and commemorate a year in the life of polka band leader Marv Herzog. A hot breakfast in the morning is included in the room rate, and the staff is very friendly. Situated in the heart of downtown, this hotel was a perfect little getaway for me and my daughter....highly recommend!

We paid more for this hotel because we expected it to be a little nicer then other hotels in Frankenmuth. It was NOT worth the money. The room was small but it was very clean. The TV looks very old. The bedding was pathetic. The sheets were like a thin rag and the comforter was so thin. Housekeeping never cleaned our room and my husband had to get the towels and a garbage bag downstairs! Called the front desk several times over the two night stay and no one ever answered the phone. The breakfast was OK. On the second morning there we were asked to fill out a paper and specify what items we would like for breakfast and to pick out a time we wanted to eat in 15 minute increments. The last thing I want on a relaxing weekend away is to worry about going to breakfast at a certain time. I really regret not staying across the street where we stayed last year for $75.00 cheaper. We chose this hotel based on the reviews here. My advise would be to stay at Springhill suites. I sure wish we would have.
