Two grandparents, a daughter, and three granddaughters shared adjoining rooms few steps away from the slides/pools. We enjoyed them all immensely. The girls enjoyed the slides and pools as well as arcades and mini golf, a challenging course. The only negative was the amenities. There was no microwave in the rooms. A trip down the hall to a communal microwave...

Dear Sckukla, Thankyou kindly for your feedback and review on this site. So glad that your 3 generations had FUN relaxing together. Appreciate hearing the details that mattered most to you. As you know, we are very family focused and "not having microwaves" sounds like a negative. Two issues have stopped us from installing them in all rooms. First, we...

2 grandchildren and I stayed in a tower room. lots of room and the king bed is extremely comfortable. they loved the whirlpool. Oma's restaurant has good service, good sized portions and the staff are very friendly. I've stayed at the hotel many, many times and it never disappoints. It was decorated for Easter inside and out. Beautiful photo ops.

Staff was very friendly, the room was spotless, and the food at Oma's was the best. I had potato pancakes and they were the best I've had in over 50 years! I will definitely be staying at Bavarian Inn on my next visit to Frankenmuth. Loved that I could walk everywhere, and the grounds and covered bridge are gorgeous!

We have stayed at Bavarian Inn Lodge many times, staff is always thoughtful, courteous and helpful. Only down side was the inconsiderate teens/tweens and whoever was supposed to be supervising them. Slamming doors and being noisy in halls is rude to other guests, there are signs everywhere to be considerate. We still enjoyed our stay, but shake our heads at...

Dear Sandi S., Thank you Sandi for your loyalty to the Bavarian Inn Lodge. I would like to apologize for the disrespectful guests during your spring-breaks stay. Although we had heavy staff on site to manage the crowds, we too are frustrated at unsupervised children who are disrespectful. When we can find them, they are escorted back to parents and...

Our room was in the courtyard area with access directly to the adult pool. It was very quiet and beautiful. The on-site restaurants seemed to be plentiful. We dined at the Bavarian Inn Restaurant for the world famous chicken dinner.

The Barvarian Inn is the perfect place to take your children for a fun getaway. There's something for everyone to do - shopping, swimming, the arcade, a variety of restaurants. I love the pools and the water slides. The water slides are great because you don't have to deal with a loud water park or long lines. We went during...
