Travel Blogs from Frankenmuth
Hi everyone, Time sure is going by fast. Here we are in September and Jeff and I will be heading to Belize in less than a month. One more week in Michigan with family before heading to Las Vegas for a week. You would think we would tire of our wanderings but each stop brings a new adventure/experience. I don't want to bore you with our routine right now (spending time with family, eating, sleeping, babysitting, etc)' so I will close with some pictures. Until ...
... we got a senior discount!!).
From Jiffy Lube, we went to Walmart (told you this wasn’t an exciting day!) where we picked up a couple of items and I got my nails done. There was a Miejer store close to us, and since we knew that our friends in Lexington really like them, we stopped in to see what it was all about. It is HUGE and seemed to have just ...
We visited some ticket sellers next…one was at a car dealership and we were invited back to say hi to the owner, who was instrumental in helping our sponsors find a lot to put the circus on. So, of course, we had to bring a clown to his office. He was a good sport and even told us a couple of jokes, along with donning a Mickey Mouse hat and insisting on photos with John. We were ready to put a red nose on him and ...
We woke up to a beautiful sunny day - so glad we decided to stay another night. After breakfast we checked out Bronner's Christmas Store - they claim to be the largest store of their kind in the world. It was very impressive - you could spend hours in there. After lunch we moved our rig to Pine Ridge RV Resort which was only $37/night. It was a beautiful wooded park but no pool or hot tub. The showers in the "bath house" required quarters which I ...
After an amazing trip to Ontario, Canada visiting family and friends for 9 weeks, we pulled out of Grand Bend at 9:45 am. The weather had been dull and rainy for a couple of days and today was no different. Although we were excited to resume the adventure, we had very mixed emotions about leaving our loved ones behind. We crossed the border within 15 minutes and headed west on Hwy. 69 towards ...

Where do I begin with this place.... well, we came in for just one night and went straight to the "pools", well...they had sooooo much chlorine, that even us the adults could barely keep our eyes open or stop coughing!, then came the rooms...OMG! We asked for two roller beds and they provided Us with just one and after I raised a little bit of commotion then all of the sudden another bed another appeared but not without a terrible attitude from the housekeeping woman! The bathroom shower nob keep coming off....they provided some crystals to put in the whirlpool but for some reason there was a long hair inside the bottle of it, just gross!!! Then came the sofa bed, it had dried up Fruity Pebbles cereal on it, so I had to clean that up! From there it gets worse, the shower nob came falling off but we just dealt with it because I was tired of calling downstairs to the front desk to tell them about our issues, but this last issue is just UNSANITARY AND DISGUSTING!!!! Our sheets had stains on them and EVERY pillowcase in our room had BLOOD stains.... I mean BLOOD STAINS!!!! That's just horrible, disgusting, sick and I can go on and on!!!! I returned at least 5 pillows and just finally got tired to call them , so I keep coming down to the front desk with all these issues but I didn't want my kids to keep hearing me on the phone explaining to them about all of this! Just a terrible experience, that we won't be able to forget!

Historical Traveler Reviews Bavarian Inn Lodge Frankenmuth
My fiance and I stayed here once and that was all it took for us to never want to stay here again! I visit Frankenmuth at least once every two to three months and we usually stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Birch Run but we thought we would give the Frankenmuth Bavarian Inn a try since it seems to be so talked about. Well we stayed one night but let me tell you it was not that great! The bed was so uncomfortable, I did not get any sleep nor did my fiance. The room was not dirty but it was not that clean, and the staff really did not seem like they cared to much about customer service. When I first ckecked in I should have realized that it was going to be not so good, because there staff was out front smoking at the entrance and would not move for me to get in and when I did say excuse me they gave me a dirty look like I was being rude or something. Never again will I stay here, to high priced for nothing! I would never recommend this Inn to anyone!
Great place for kids
Just got back from the Bavarian Inn Lodge. Great place to take the kids for a few days. Lots to do-5 pools, game area, putt putt golf. Lots of places to walk around and shop. The rooms were big and clean. Ask for a room that doesn't overlook the parking lot for a better view. If you are looking for a quuiet getaway this is not the place for you.
The bavarian Inn was great but we had the 3 day pass for the motorcycle show and was not able to get in on the second day! They had not expected such a crowd. So we missed out on some of the events and were disappointed.
Great place for kids
I went to the bavarian inn with my mother and my children for a couple of days of shopping. We all loved it! It was great for the kids which is great for me. The numerous pools were fun for 7 and 5yr.old and the kiddie pool was very shallow which was perfect for me and my son who was 11 mos. old at the time. My older boys love the water cannons and the waterfall pool. The games were great. Next time we go, would like to try mini golf. I would recommend this hotel to anyone with kids.
This is the perfect place to leave dad and the kids while mom goes shopping.
There is an old section and new section of the hotel. Some of the older
You pay for the location
It was a Mom and Daughters weekend and we wanted to be right downtown so the location was perfect. Very expensive (almost $200) for one night. The pool is definitely a kid's paradise unless you don't mind getting splashed.. It's definitely geared for families if that's what you're looking for. Me? I wouldn't have minded the price if we had a more luxurious room, however, you're paying to be downtown and sometimes it's worth not having to drive everywhere. Next time I think I would stay at Zehnders though, at least you can eat the famous chicken dinner and then walk to the room instead of having to drive back to the Bavarian to crash after your food coma!
For the Family
This is an absolutely fabulous place to stay if you have children that would enjoy all of the pools and arcades. We are a younger couple, and all of the kids running around and screaming at all hours of the night was a little annoying. I do not recommend this as a romantic getaway; however, the family will love it.
our first stay at the bavarian inn lodge was four years ago and we have been going three times a year since. we have went for romantic getaways and for family getaways and no matter what we are never dissappointed. i wouldn't stay at any other place around frankenmuth.
It was and is a lot of fun...
