It was OK Wanted an economical hotel, it was a very nice hotel. The couple next to us got into an argument and we could hear every word. The hotel was pretty close to most of the stores. The continental breakfast was just OK

My wife and I stayed here on a Monday night because we were looking for a cheap, quick vacation, but still wanted to experience all of Frankenmuth. This proved the perfect method as we were about a 1/4 mile from town, we chose to walk, but may not be suitable for some. Driving in would be no problem either. Everything...

Spent one night at this motel on our way to Chicago. It was very adequate and clean. The lady at the front desk on the day we arrived was not very welcoming perhaps abrupt. The breakfast was basic . Unfortunately I left 2 pieces of clothing in my room and although I left them a message on the Internet they...

Wanted a roadtrip for my birthday and decided on Frankenmuth, Mi. Decided to stay at Frankenmuth Motel. We wanted something quiet and off the main road, yet close enough to town. This Motel fit the bill. The room rates were reasonable. If you book direct, you can get a AAA discount. Front desk associates were great. Rooms spacious and clean....
