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...

My stay at frankenmuth motel was perfect. I was trying to stay on a budget and still have a nice place to rest my head at night and this did just that. Everything was clean, the sheets smelled fresh, the bathroom was nice because the toilet and shower were separate from the sink. Had a nice size refrigerator in the...

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....

First trip to Frankenmuth and the Frankenmuth Motel. Was pleased with the quick check in. The lobby is clean and inviting and I noticed right away the availability of snacks, drinks, and a medicine shop in the lobby. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the pillows were very nice. My brother and his wife stayed in a...

I stayed at Frankenmuth Motel for 4 nights. Once again it was another great stay. The Motel is always clean and accommodating. Although the breakfast is small it's just enough. There are plenty of good places to eat in Frankenmuth. I recommend Z's Chef Cafe in the basement of Zehnders. The food is always good and there are many choices....

Dawn & I typically stay at Frankenmuth Motel when there's availability but many years we end up wait-listed. This year, we were pleasantly surprised with updated room #39 which seems to undergone a recent remodel. The room "smells" clean and was very comfortable for three of us travelers. Awesome PILLOWS... you get your choice of the firm or fluffy-soft !!!...

I freely admit that I am hotel snob. I haven't stayed in a motel for a long time. But I thought this seems like the perfect place to give it a try again. I was not disappointed. I saved some money over the larger chains and had a pleasurable experience. The front desk staff were very friendly. The check-in process...

I have been coming to this hotel yearly for our annual shopping trip to Birch Run/Frankenmuth. The rooms are nothing fancy, but it is clean, quiet and out of the "busy" section of town. Bronners, Frankenmuth and Birch Run are all close . They updated with flat screen TVs and nice size refrigerators in the rooms.

THis place looks like an older motel but the rooms are roomy and really quite nice, comfortable beds, great pillows and over-all good value - located almost next door to Bronners and not far from town.
