I attended the BMW Motorcycle International Rally that was held at the fair grounds and stayed here during the event. There was nothing negative about this motel. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were nice, clean, bright and large. The breakfast has a lot of both warm and cold choices. However the best part of the motel is... More

The upgrade to a PLUS has made Bandana Square a very good place to stay, The improved amenities and better breakfast menu were a welcome surprise, I have been staying at Bandana Square for more the 20 years, unfortunately my room had a very loud vent blowing air into the room, it made for a restless night. I understand the... More

As others have said the building was part of an old railway complex and much of the original construction has been maintained, making it unique as hotels go. We liked it very much. Very nicely decorated room, very clean, with super comfy bed. The front desk staff bent over backwards to solve our initial problems with the internet connection. (Indeed,... More

Loved breakfast set up in narrow train car feel. Wish we were able to earn Gold Points at CLC rate. Sleep testing going, would guess that implies a quiet place to stay. Get the real feel of old train station. Getting to fast food is longer drive than used to.

We stayed for two nights on separate trips. The rooms were both clean and updated (flat screens, new bedspreads). The breakfast options were OK (standard hotel fare), but nothing to write home about. As several other reviewers have commented, the building is in an old locomotive repair station and is cavernous, with the hotel rooms built as separate units within... More

The hotel is unique, easy to get to. Rooms are large and comfortable. We did not have a lot of time to use the pool and hot tub but they are a good size. Hotel is close to the Metro Line which made it easy and convenient to get to the University of Minnesota without having to find and pay... More

This was an overnight stay,this is very unique hotel as it was a Locomotive repair shop in its first life and there are still railroad tracks in the lobby, depending on your room it can be a long walk through multiple doorways, the room is very comfortable, the only concern for some is it is in the city and may...

This hotel was perfect for us! It was clean, comfortable, quiet; staff was very friendly; pool was small but perfect for us. We had a poolside room which we normally avoid, but it was totally quiet, plus we had a nice area outside our room to sit and watch kids in the pool and visit with friends. Only downside was... More

We usually try and stay with the BW chain. We have found the service at the Bandanna Square location in St. Paul, MN to be exceptional. We have stayed here several times & there is consistently excellent service. We have seen the same staff over and over which is another plus. The hotel is unique in that it's an old... More
