I came to St. Paul to check my daughter in to a medical facility. It was an emotional, stressful time. I was unfamiliar with the area and knew of 2 motels close to where she would be located. The first one I drove to was dark, small and lonely. We went to the Best Western at Bandana Square and felt... More

This beautifully study, roomy former train engine repair shop with pool, is blemished by new and uniformed staff, broken equipment at the front desk and a deterioration in the quality of the formerly very nice breakfast. The nasty surprised of sudden and daily price variations makes this formerly wonderful stay undesirable.

Definitely good business & family hotel; very convenient free parking (though not attached ramp, just across street), attentive staff, breakfast area well stocked and very clean; bar is some place I wished I had been. Nice to stay in place that permits pets; dogs lightened the day - feels homey. For wheelies & wheelchairs few frustrations here. Two minor issues,... More

Good location for my needs. Close to I94. Great inside and outside décor. Rooms large and clean and comfortable. Parking is close and convenient. Has a very nice bar with friendly staff. Breakfast is good, typical with other similar facilities.

Staying at the Best Western plus at Bandana Square was a great place to stay....we had complete privacy and no one came and woke us up at the crack of dawn to see if we wanted our room cleaned...it was very quiet and the breakfast was great...we love it...

Liked the atmosphere of the hotel, comfortable room and quiet location. The customer service was not the best but they did OK whenever I asked them to do different tasks. The room was OK, as well...quite comfortable.

I stay here sometimes for work meetings that are nearby. The rates are good rooms are clean. My only complaint is that this hotel can be very noisy at night. Maybe the rooms need better doors or soundproofing but otherwise can't complain.

Horrible customer service at the front desk!! Staying for a week and it's only the first night! If I would have known how unfriendly the woman was going to be I would have chose a different place to stay! Never again!!
