The staff is excellent. Everyone says hi when we were walking around. The property is very clean. My only complaint is that the pillows are awful. It’s like trying to sleep on a brick. Everything else is very good.

Dear Sheri,Thank you for your recent stay and for your kind words on this site! We truly appreciate your kind words on the level of service you were provided from our Staff. I am very sorry about the pillows, you should call and ask for softer pillows. But you should have had them. Every bed has back row of firm pillows and front row of soft pillows. I am perplexed...We do hope you will visit us again for years to come!Sincerely,Jim Engel, C.O.O.On behalf of the ENTIRE Bavarian Inn Lodge Team
