My family stayed at The Bavarian Inn on January 1st. Even though it was very busy at the hotel every staff member made us feel welcome. It was a great experience, especially the fun center and the pool. We also appreciated the free shuttle service to the restaurant for a special chicken dinner. Thank you. We will definitely return!

We went for one night right after Christmas. The toddler pool and slides were perfect for our family. I loved the KinderVillage near all the games, my toddler and baby loved it. The hotel could definitely use some updated of the linens- looks so drab with those curtains and bedspreads. My biggest issue was they don't use fitted sheets on...
