    I liked the location and the general outside appearance. The staff at check in were quite friendly and helpful

    The overall facility was outdated, rooms appeared to be in need up updatings. I thought the price was excessive for the facilities. I expected to get more for the price of the accommodations. The adult whirlpool needed to be larger and have a higher heat setting. On departure I had inquired as options for breakfast, I was told that other than the hotel restaurant that the only place for breakfast was Tim Hortens or McDonalds, which wasn't true, I found several other options available

    This was a return stay for the Thanksgiving holiday after several years of not visiting. The Lodge has made many upgrades. Our room appeared to have new mattresses and pillows plus a flat screen tv. Pool and whirlpool areas all modernized. New waterslide for kids now open. We enjoyed the adult pool area very much. Convenient shuttle bus runs from Lodge into town and the Riverplace shopping mall. Our meals at Oma's Restaurant and the Thanksgiving buffet were excellent! Of course, you can't beat the shopping in Frankenmuth! We enjoyed our stay very much and plan to return next year.

    Although the food was good at Oma's Restaurant, the wait staff wasn't the best. We had to hunt down our servers most of the time to get what we needed. The young servers could use some training on attentiveness. Also, it took forever to receive our bill after the Thanksgiving buffet. We were told the wait staff had to deal with only one computer for the entire banquet room. Perhaps an upgrade in technology should be next on the Lodge's list of things to do. For the amount of money the place takes in per reservation, each employee should be empowered with a tablet/iPad to get things done more efficiently!

    Very Clean

    I really think they should offer Continental breakfast with room for the price we paid.

    Location

    Security lock did not work, no heat when it was 29' out side, maintenance could not fix and space heater and two blankets were brought to us. Our first room still smelled from being a smoking room. They did move us from that one to the one I am describing. There was also a electrical short in lamp between the beds.

    Would love better deals for rooms....

    Grounds and facilities were attractive and family oriented

    We stayed here as most other accommodation was full at the time we booked. Room was clean but somewhat tired, especially bath facilities. Amenities (ie. Towels,soaps, etc,) sparse and disappointing. Found room adequate but overpriced, especially compared to other accommodation in area.

    All the wonderful amenities they offer, and the wonderful staff. cannot be beat. we have been staying at the lodge for many years and will continue to do so.

    Absolutely nothing. everything was just as we expected. awesome.

    This is a very nice hotel with good sized guest rooms. The hotel is in Bavarian style and all staff dress in Bavarian costume. It is central to most of the shopping in Frankenmuth which is the main reason for the visit. Brommers Christmas store is a short drive away. Lots for stuff for kids to do but since we don't have any we appreciated the fact that the adult pool area is far away from the fun zone and is open late for a relaxing swim or hot tub after a busy day shopping and German family style eating. There is a good sized mini-fridge in every room for leftovers.

    Decor and costumes are a bit tacky but lots of fun if you just accept it.

    The beds were comfortable.

    The food at the hotel restaurant was very bad. It was an unpalatable meal. One bite and we left. It put a damper on enjoying the trip there. I still have the bad taste in my mouth. The two nights prior we stayed at a hotel in Dearborn that knows what service is at half the price. They went out of their way to exceed our travel expectations. Too bad the same didn't hold true here.
