The Barvarian Inn is the perfect place to take your children for a fun getaway. There's something for everyone to do - shopping, swimming, the arcade, a variety of restaurants. I love the pools and the water slides. The water slides are great because you don't have to deal with a loud water park or long lines. We went during...

Stayed here recently for a business convention. Just excellent. Hotel is older, but immaculately maintained. And the food! The coolest part was that before each banquet meal, either an owner or a manager would address the group with an in-depth explanation of the menu. Really added to the folkloric vibe of the place.

We chose the Bavarian Inn as a last minute spring break trip with our kids. The hotel is clean and has a ton of character. The staff is amazing. There is always something for kids to do between swimming, the arcade, mini golf and the ratskeller lounge. GREAT, affordable family destination!
