It was a self contained wonderland of fun! On the coldest day of the year we were basking in sunbeams soaking in a clean hot tub and roaming all the indoor fun. Perfection! We live this place!!

The room that I paid for was not the room that they offered us. We were supposed to be on the river side not the parking lot side. In addition to that the fan from the bathroom below our room was on all night keeping us awake. Slightly disappointed

Dear Brenda, I am very sorry that we disappointed you with your view. Regarding fans, the bathrooms do not have individual fans - it is a networked system and one large fan pulls air out of all rooms by zones. Those fans are remote. Again, I do hope you called for maintenance as we say staffed 6am until past midnight to support our inhouse guests. My sincere apologies. Yours in Service, Jim Engel, C.O.O. - Serving Bavarian Inn Guests for 44 Years - On behalf of the ENTIRE Bavarian Inn Lodge Team

Dear Michelle, Thank you for your kind rating on this site. We officially pulled coffee pots when COVID hit - following CDC mandates. But the coffee offered in public spaces (7 days a week / 24 hours a day) have received so many raves, we do not plan to put coffee makers back in our guestrooms. No guest complimented us on the quality of inroom coffee in many years. We DO HOPE to serve you whenever you get a craving that Frankenmuth and the Bavarian Inn has to offer. Until then, Auf Wiedersehn! Jim Engel, C.O.O. - Serving Bavarian Inn Guests for 44 Years - On behalf of the ENTIRE Bavarian Inn Lodge Team

Dear Mary, Thank you for staying with us at the Bavarian Inn Lodge and for your kind rating on this site! One of the challenges of being a large full-service hotel is that we commonly host 1,000 to 1,300 people overnight when we are sold out. There is no functional way to provide a free breakfast for all in the typical 2 hour window that guests want it. That amenity is usually provided in box hotels with an average of 60 room that do not offer sit down table service dining. We DO HOPE to serve you for MANY years to come! Sincerely, Jim Engel, C.O.O. - Serving Bavarian Inn Guests for 44 Years - On behalf of the ENTIRE Bavarian Inn Lodge Team

I am very sorry you were disappointed. We are continually reinvesting into the Lodge with very significant investments. In fact it is common we are waiting for the ability of vendors to produce the products like furniture, carpeting and HVAC units as staffing is so difficult everywhere. We are the largest Bavarian Theme hotel in the world but we are all under one roof and it still is not 1/10th of a mile from one end to another. We would be happy to assist you in placing your room closest to what matters most in the future. We do it for folks all the time by preassigning a specific room number! Sincerely, Jim Engel, C.O.O. Bavarian Inn Lodge

It was a great time had by all. There is so much to do for all ages in the hotel and plenty of things outside in walking distance. We can wait to go back.
