Historical Traveler Reviews Drury Inn & Suites Frankenmuth
I stayed here for a couple nights while in the area on business. The staff was very friendly and upgraded me to a suite at no additional cost. Room was very clean and maid service great. The free hot breakfast was a nice way to start the day. They also had a special offering 60 minutes of free long distance each night. The hotel is located towards one end of the main strip, and is an easy walk to many of Frankenmuth's attractions.
Drury Inn at Christmas was great!
I would recommend this hotel to anyone. We stayed at the Drury Inn three days before Christmas, which the occupancy was low. I choose the Drury Inn for it's location, free hot breakfast, indoor pool and price. We were pleased with it all, especially the breakfast of french toast, Belgian waffles and biscuits & gravy. The Happy Hour was not bad either. Free snacks, soda and cocktails. Adult beverages were limited to three per person, which sounds like a bummer but the Happy Hour is only for an hour & half any way. The lobby area is small, so I would imagine breakfast & happy hour would be crowded in the high season.
We thought the entire hotel was clean & quiet and the staff was very nice. The hotel is surrounded by a parking lot & is in the center of town, so don't expect any spectacular views. However, the location was perfect for walking up and down Main Street, not to mention close to the best German Restaurant in town -- the Franken Eck.
The Drury Inn is pet friendly and in our three day stay, we saw 8 dogs (remember this is the low season and occupancy was a low 30%). I didn't notice any bad smells due to the animals.
Overall, the location was convenient and the hotel was an excellent value. It's a very nice place to stay. I think the review posted by the Miami folks is a false review written by someone from a competitive hotel. The only problem we had was with the room temperature. At all cost you will want to stay away from rooms 209 & 213 as they are right above the pool. With temperatures outside hovering above zero degrees, the temp in our room was pushing 80 degrees and we could not get it to go down, not even with the window open. The front desk was not surprised by our request to switch rooms, which makes me wonder why they put us in that room in the first place with plenty of other rooms available. We were promptly moved as far away from the pool as possible, but we still had a heat problem. We never turned the heat on and had the window open the whole time.
Great place to stay.
Have stayed (numerous times each year) at the Drury ever since it was built. Friendly, courteous staff, clean rooms, lovely contenental breakfast. Can't say enough! Always been treated very well. Central location, right on the main street.
Our stayat the Drury Inn was lovely.
Our family of four (including two young teenagers) stayed overnight at the Drury during our trip to Frankenmuth this week. It was a very nice stay. The breakfast was great! Make your own Belgian waffles, hot eggs and sausage, sausage gravy and biscuits. They also provide free cocktails, soft drinks and snacks at before dinnertime. The hotel was clean and pleasant. Although it was not in the middle of the crowded shopping areas, it was convenient to the shops along Main St and across the street from the St Julian Winery. The stay was an excellent value.
Wouldn't stay anywhere else
the breakfast was wonderful, the people are friendly and very caring, the rooms were super duper clean...stayed in other hotels bavarian inn(old)...bavarian lodge (old)....if you are going to frankenmuth i suggest you stay here....it is the best.
((( hugs ))) to the Drury Inn at Frankenmuth, MI
In response to the nasty review by the FL person -- hey, Drury Inn is a family oriented hotel!!!!!!!!!!! I'm thrilled with it! We stay there at LEAST 50% of our time in Frankenmuth - by choice - because of the kind, friendly, efficient staff, AND the very clean, nice, non-stuffy atmosphere. Take your window cleaner and towels with you next time!
Not bavarian inn
This was not htat bad. But you can spend a little more money a night and stay at Baverian Inn. If you are going all the way there mindeswell go somehwere worth staying.
Great place to stay
Me and my husband highly recommend this hotel. The people who work there were very nice and went out of their way to make sure we had a great visit. We checked in late, but still found the staff warm and friendly. It is located on Main Street and is perfect for taking walks up and down the street to shop at all the quaint stores on main street.
They serve a free hot breakfast in the morning and have evening snacks in the main lobby. They have a pool and jaccuzzi which were both very good. The room was clean and spacious. We couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay for the price we paid.
LOVED THIS HOTEL
We loved this hotel, it had a great hot breakfast that was free and it was right on the Main street in town so we could walk to everything from here. The staff was very friendly, from the front desk person to the breakfast hostess and our housekeeper! Our room was clean and the hotel was charming. We will stay here everytime we come to Frankenmuth.
I read the response from some other guest and I totally disagree with them, it doesn't even sound like the same hotel?
Do Not Stay At DRURY INN!
When you first walk in you are greeted by the one PERSON at the front desk. That's right where the problems begin. There was only 1 lady at the desk and the line was long and took forever to get through. The hotel lobby is open and is quite dirty. The smell of the pool can be smelled all the way through the hotel. I started gagging whenever I walked near the pool area. They do have a glass elevator, but its always dirty and wet from little tikes from the pool. Also there was always fingerprints, food, and stuff I dont want to imagine on the glass. We went to our room, it was okay- the carpet is old and sticky, the comforter had several stains - the blankets were old and sticky. The bathroom had hair all over and our tub was BLACK! The beds are okay for the price my husband and I paid, but overall - I would stay at the Bavarian Inn if I ever went back. The coffee pot had coffee stains and hair inside it. The maid lady did a wonderful job cleaning up our room. The hotel is small though and has alot of children. If you dont mind being woke up at 9 am for daily maid service and children everywhere - then this is the hotel for you. NOTE IF YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO PETS DO NOT STAY HERE - they allow animals to stay in the rooms - we noticed the smell of urine in our room and found pet hair all over the hotel. I am allergic to pets and I had to use my nebulizer at least 3 times a day.

There were only 8 of those spaces on the whole board, what are the odds? Makes me wonder what we're ...
