Gosh, not sure why Mr. Coletta could not get thru last Summer. We have numerous published toll free numbers. I am not sure if I can post it here, but I shall, in case it helps for the future. The Perks Club for Bavarian Inn is within the Lodge. (888)775-6343 Sincerely, Jim Engel, COO Bavarian Inn Lodge

This hotel offers so much to the family. You can spend hours at the pools alone. There is also putt putt and video games. Great dining also. Highly recommend.

Bavarian Inn lodge is great for a family getaway. Be sure to play in all of the pools, play a round of putt putt and sing karaoke. Adults can enjoy a drink in the bars. Great shopping within walking distance. Must have a chicken dinner while there and go to Bronners for a christmas tree ornament.

Just celebrated our twentieth wedding annv. at the lodge ,the third week in July. The rooms were fantastic and clean as a whistle ,also. You will never get the attention to detail anywhere else like this . We had great dinners and breakfasts right on the prop. The pools and hottubs were outta this world. By all means check this place out. We have been going here for years and it just gets better every time. By the way, try the tower suites out , Great.........cubsguy.

We have stayed at this lodge many times and will continue to do so. It has the most wonderful atmosphere. Very authentic in every detail. Each room is dedicated to a German family from the area and has information and articles about them all about the room.

Has on-site resturants and so much fun for the whole family. Entire family fun center is the entire basement level of the lodge.

This inn/lodge is beautiful! There are many pools and activities for the children to experience, as well as a few eateries for parents, or the family, to go to at night. You can visit the Christmas store to purchase Christmas items, as well as taking a "tour" of the surroundings to see the lights lit up at Christmas time. The best thing about this place is that you can visit year round! You can get Christmas ornaments in July if you want!! That's a plus!

The prices are in line with other inns or lodges; however, bring lots of money to buy ornaments or knick knacks, as well as for food. Very easy to access off the expressway and lots of parking available.

CHRISTmas is an important part of Frankenmuth and our business heritage. The Lodge is about 1/2 mile from the largest Christmas store and we are glad that you and your family enjoy our location and entertainment!

My family has been visiting this hotel twice a year for the last 10 years and have always enjoyed it. It is great for a family getaway with everything you need for a nice weekend. The hotel has an adults only pool, as well as 4 pools for families, including a kiddie wading pool and one with a waterfall. The Fun Center has indoor mini golf, arcade games with tickets & prizes, a snack bar with activities for all ages. The only downside is that the rooms are very expensive, especially for family suites, and they charge you one month in advance on your credit card to reserve the room. It is also near Birch Run Outlet Mall, and the downtown Frankenmuth area is great for shopping.

PROS: Superb service, lots to do, very family friendly
CONS: Expensive, charge you before you arrive

Hey Sue - - we almost never have advance deposits now except for deeply discounted last minute offers. Make sure to stay in the Bavarian Inn Perks Club to take advantage of awesome discounts and deals to help out the pocket-book in these tougher times.

We have stayed at this Hotel many times and now it is a family tradition to go up to Frankenmuth the week before xmas get a family suite with a xmas tree and just relax!!!

They will actually put a xmas tree in your room. How nice is that gesture. The rooms are wonderfully cozy and exceptionally clean.

They family fun center is one of the many highlights of our trip as is the pools! They are five of them.

You can spend the entire weekend and never leave the building if you don't want to .

Dear Bebe: So glad you enjoy the Family Suites with two rooms. We inventory over 130 - 3 foot trees to place in rooms during the Holiday season to help make the festive time of year, that much more so! Thanks again for your kind words and we await your return visit! Jim Engel, C.O.O. Bavarian Inn Lodge

We stayed here for friends' wedding in June of 2005. Our room was very nice, we had a balcony view of the river, and we were allowed to check in early. It was clean, and the hotel staff was very polite.

I didn't particularly like the policy where they charge your CC the entire cost of the room one month AHEAD of time if you reserved over the phone. In order to get the "wedding party rate" that our friends were quoted, we had to reserve over the phone, as the website doesn't/can't/won't find group rates.

The restaurants were beyond expensive for what you received, food wise.

We will very likely stay here again as a "weekend getaway" because it is very convenient to get to from our house, and the rooms are very nice. We will not be eating at the lodge though, its just far too expensive for the quality and quantity.

PROS: Excellent accommodations, "family fun center", many pools
CONS: A little expensive; on-site restaurants are ridiculously expensive!

Six years later, we don't have advance deposits any longer. Instead we typically hold the room and charge the guest if they area no-show. You will find rates everywhere (and here) are lower than 2005 as the economy and so many specials have allowed that to happen!

My family and I stayed at this hotel based only on its reputation and this hotel did not dissapoint. We were able to check in early so that my daughter could have a nap. Our room was excellent, very clean and decorated very nicely. Even though we were at the end of a hallway it was completely quiet at night. We of course went swimming and the pools were excellently maintained and pleasant to be around. We had dinner at the very nice restaurant inside the hotel and the service was superb, along with the food being superb. I very highly recommend staying at this hotel. It is not cheap to stay here, but it is well worth the money.

PROS: Proximity to Birch Run and Frankenmuth attractions
CONS: It is expensive, but definitely worth it

Thanks so much CP - expensive is a relative term but rates in slow times can be as low as $79.00 but a Family Suite on a sold-out Saturday during a festival can exceed $200. So we will work hard to find a date and room type to fit any budget! Jim Engel, C.O.O. Bavarian Inn Lodge
