The Frankenmuth Motel is AAA approved and locally owned and operated. The Motel is one street off of Main street, just 2 blocks North of Bronner's CHRISTmas Wonderland. We are situated between Michigan's Own Military and Space Museum and Zeilinger Wool Company. The Motel has 53 ground floor rooms and (following State Law) we are all non-smoking. The Motel does have a outdoor smoking area. We also have a limited number of pet rooms with a small cleaning fee. Coffee is available in our office/front desk area during office hours and a cold continental breakfast is available every morning. We may not be located on Main Street but we are only about 5 blocks from most Festivals and the RiverPlace Shops. We are only 8 blocks from Bavarian Inn and Zehnder's Restaurants downtown and all of Main Street has Free Parking. Within walking Distance of Zehnder's Splash Village.

Though this gem is not on the main street, you'd be hard pressed to find a better value all the way around. The staff has always been top notch (we have stayed here a minimum of 5 or 6 times), the rooms are clean, spacious, and updated. I really would have a hard time paying for a larger place on the main strip when this Motel meets or exceeds all of the expectations that you'd hope to find in such an establishment.

I've been going to Frankenmuth every year for years now, but I have never stayed at this motel. I thought I'd take a chance due to the excellent reviews here. First the positives: the room was very clean, the staff were all nice, the price was right, great selection of TV channels and the location is in a quiet part of town away from the hustle and bustle of main street. On another note, the room, altho very clean, was showing some wear and tear: the slip strips in the shower were coming off and I caught my toe on it twice even tho I knew it was curled up. Not a major thing, but a bad patch job on the wall and peeling wallpaper were noticeable in the room I had. I also found the bed too hard, and the pillows were not as soft as they were listed to be (2 firm and 2 soft). The bad part was the hole in the wall between the sink and shower, which I'm pretty sure is where the creepy centipede that was sitting on the sink crawled out from. Unfortunately, I was unable to kill it as it slithered away and fell onto the patterned carpet and disappeared. The heater sounded like a jet engine when it came on and my ear plugs were in my suitcase, across the floor with a creepy centipede on the loose. It sounds like from other reviews here that I was unlucky in getting the room I was assigned, but no motel should have creepy crawlies coming out of holes in the wall.

Thank you for your comments from your stay. We could have moved you to a different room if one was available and the Front Desk would have known about the issues. Have a great day!

When's the last time you could drive up to your room? If you like the motel setting, this is a great value. Friendly staff, and pleasant customer service, They even phoned to confirm a couple of days before. All we needed to enjoy a weekend in Frankenmuth! I definitely would stay here again if back in the area!

Quaint motel within walking distance of many restaurants and stores, and just a short drive to the outlet mall in Birch Run. The staff was very friendly and attentive. We will stay their again, and expect to make a Frankenmuth Motel stay a yearly event!

Front desk staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. We come up from Ohio at least twice a year and stay here and we are always pleased with our accommodations each and every time. The motel is close to the restaurants and shopping. You will not be disappointed.

Place was clean and tidy and a great price. Location was quiet even though the motel was full. Nothing fancy but great for what we wanted to pay. Staff friendly and easy booking. Plenty of outlets to plug in electronics and chargers.

Clean, friendly, and priced right. Great location for a great Frankenmuth experience. Could not ask for a better place to stay. It will be where I stay from now on when visiting the Great State of Michigan.
