We were initally pleased with a TravelZoo 2 night special offer, but had to pay nearly another $50 to upgrade to another room so the bargain didn't really end up a "good deal". Stayed in the newer annex, and was glad after seeing the rooms in the older part of the building. THe room wasn't anything special compared to many... More

We were given a stay at the Afton in as a gift. Each room is different. We had fun picking our room from the photos online... hmm should we go with the one with fake flowers that match the wall paper or lacy curtains and crystal lamp. I finally called to make the reservation, the staff person was able to... More

We have not stayed there - the overall look of the place put us off! It is in dire need of updating before it falls down. Had lunch on the patio (Current Restaurant) on a beautiful fall day, but the service was awful. It is quite a drive from downtown Mpls. or St. Paul. If we had paid a high... More

Our first visit to Afton House Inn will definitely not be our last- an attentive staff, great wine bar, excellent restaurant, great antique store all nestled next to the St Croix River in quiet Afton. The Caesar Salad and Steak Diane were worthy of five stars.

Let me say up front that I stayed here out of convenience of location, and really only needed a bed to crash in. I arrived in late afternoon, visited with friends nearby, and left very early the next day, so I did not have a chance to experience any of the "attractions" nearby. I also left so early that breakfast... More

I was looking for a getaway that was close to the cities and found this place from a recommendation. Spent two days at the Jacuzzi sweet that over looked the river. Had a nice dinner cruise on Friday night and golfed Afton Saturday. We had awesome food at the restaurant and drinks at the bar. Tons of outdoor seating as... More

Because this is the only place to stay overnight in Afton, it gets away with high prices for uncomfortable poorly maintained, poorly appointed rooms. You might replace "historic" with dusty and out of date. The closest places to stay are a good 10 minutes away so I find myself staying here out of convenience. the place needs a lot of... More

I will start by saying that I am glad that, thanks to Groupon, we only paid a portion of what you normally would pay for a nights stay here. This is more like an old motel/hotel than a B&B, in my opinion. Staff was nice & breakfast was good, but it's not a true B&B experience. The sheets were itchy... More

I was not impressed at all, my room was very small, shower was tiny, ac didn't work correctly, no place to sit in room, shall I go on. The only good thing I can say was the buffet style breakfast was pretty good, for $160 a night I want be back. I have stayed in B&B's all over the U.S.... More
