The property was not super updated but was probably more appropriate for the style in a bavarian town. Everything was very clean and the staff were very good!

Dear Guest, We are celebrating a theme in our hotel. The blonde furniture and perhaps the prints we have in some fabrics that fit our European theme are occasionally labeled as "dated". We will keep our theme but promise to work hard to make sure it is not uglying out or getting worn out! Sincerely, Jim Engel, C.O.O. Bavarian Inn Lodge

The Bavarian Inn is and has been a family favorite location. The service is wonderful, Oma’s restaurant services delicious food, the items in the gift shop and at Zhenders is extensive and always fun. We try to visit at least once a year.

Kids had a blast. so did we really

Wasnt expecting this place to be so nice. Had a lot of character and looks like they broke the bank buying decorations. It was a friday, and while frankenmuth was completely, horribly overrun by shoppers on saturday, the hotel was very modestly peopled. The food was really good, the kids and i had a blast earning tickets in the arcade, and i thought the water slides were great too, tho admittedly i havent been on a water slide in almost 30 years. near the banks of a nice river, but goose poop is everywhere. Youve been warned. I will definitely be back

Thank you so much for your recent Visit to the Bavarian Inn Lodge during the Holiday Shopping Season. Glad we WOWed you and that you had FUN. Yes, the Geese tend to arrive for a few weeks in the Fall and love to adorn the lawn along the Cass River. Fortunately, mother-nature will clean up their little-gifts very quickly. We do enjoy watching 100 - 500 geese fly in, in the mornings and out again about dusk. We hope for the opportunity to serve your family again when visiting Frankenmuth! Sincerely, Jim Engel, C.O.O.
