Travellers' Choice
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.

This was a quiet place and close to all the shopping. The breakfast was small, room was clean, and the staff was friendly. Not sure if I’d stay with kids, but as a couple we would stay here again. We enjoyed our stay.

What a nice surprise! Our room was spacious, clean and we could park right outside. No lugging suitcases, etc, up/down hallways/elevators. The staff was very welcoming and we had no issues during our stay. The location was great, too! Everything was close-by.

Pleasantly surprised at how fantastic our stay was. The rooms were equal to a $200 per night hotel. Staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. We will be back on our next trip to Frankenmuth. TV, microwave, fridge, and coffee maker like new. Bathroom immaculate

The positives of my stay were an exceptionally clean room, laminate flooring instead of the nasty unknowns of carpet as in other motels, good selection of TV channels, and the standard amenities such as refrigerator...microwave...and coffee maker. The cost for a stay was reasonable for what was offered. The "somewhat" negatives were that the single queen room we stayed in was very small, the mattress was uncomfortable and in need of replacement, there was no place in the tiny bathroom for setting your makeup and toiletries, and the motel is at least a 15 to 20 minute walk to the downtown...which I really don't consider within walking distance as advertised on the webpage. All that being said...if you're just looking for a reasonably priced place to lay your head for the night,

Being a “motel” I was a little hesitant booking this. It fell into our budget so we went with it. Upon arrival, the lady in the office was extremely nice, helpful and informative. The motel room was extremely clean, linens were fresh. The shower was equipped with shampoo and body wash. Housekeeping is available if you’d like, we declined since we were only there 2 nights. The motel was a quick drive to downtown and right next to Bronner’s. We were very please with our stay and will definitely recommend to friends and family.

Quick stay in Frankenmuth, I wanted the convenience of walking straight into my room rather than drag luggage through a lobby and elevator of a hotel. So I checked into this quaint throwback in time motel. Check in was quick and friendly. The king room was spotlessly clean, was quiet, had a new microwave and small fridge, the bed was comfortable enough, but this is where the quirky part comes in. The bed sits on a metal box that extends almost to the edge of the mattress. Every time we got in or out of bed a foot would hit this base and make a clangy metallalic din, which we eventually just laughed about with each bang. Would probably stay again next time in town. It is a piece of nostalgia straight out of my childhood.

Great place to stay. Clean, comfortable rooms with great prices! Easy check in and check out. Continental breakfast of oatmeal, bagels, muffins, yogurt, eggs, juices and coffee. Enough to hold you over. Convenient to Bronners and downtown. Highly recommend!

Very nice little motel. Clean, safe and a real gem! I love supporting local businesses and this didn’t disappoint. Great location just off the Main Street but super easy to get around Frankenmuth. Great place to stay.
