I was at the Frankenmuth Motel from April 23rd to April 27th. As always it was a great stay. The rooms are so large and very clean. The beds are comfortable and they have lots of pillows on them with different degrees of softness. The front desk staff are all very friendly and helpful. I look forward to my next...

I have stayed twice (5 days total) in the past year with my daughters and once with our dogs. When we lost power this winter they were helpful and far cheaper for pet fees than other places. This is a no frills basic motel. It's a bit outdated but our rooms have always been clean and cleaned well while we...

We rented two rooms, side by side. They were both super clean, the furnishings were new (great pillows). The place is well maintained, and it is obvious that the owners and staff take good care of it. The continental breakfast was basic, nothing fancy, but that was fine with us.

Just an FYI we did not complain. We rarely complain and tolerate a lot over having to change rooms and etc. The bathroom floor was not clean and had hair. The room was a pet room and had long blonde something previously where the hair was still left. The bed was mostly clean minus some hair again. Stains on carpet....

We have stayed here several times. Yes, it is an old motel, but it is very well maintained, clean and, like all old motels, you can drive right up to your door making loading and unloading very comvenient. We will continue to stay here when in Frankenmuth. It is the "bang for the buck" in this mostly overpriced tourist town.

It was OK Wanted an economical hotel, it was a very nice hotel. The couple next to us got into an argument and we could hear every word. The hotel was pretty close to most of the stores. The continental breakfast was just OK

My wife and I stayed here on a Monday night because we were looking for a cheap, quick vacation, but still wanted to experience all of Frankenmuth. This proved the perfect method as we were about a 1/4 mile from town, we chose to walk, but may not be suitable for some. Driving in would be no problem either. Everything...

Thank you Gmama1991 for your review. I would like to clarify some of the points you listed here. There were legitimate issues with the cleanliness of your room.
