Best Western Bandana Square is a reliable, top-knotch stay in St. Paul. I stay there all the time for business. the covered parking is great during the winter, breakfast is really good and the staff is always helpful. Another benefit is the safe neighborhood. I never worry about coming and going late at night

This hotel is just a step above a roadside motel. As you walk in, the place looks kind of run down. The front entry has chipped paint everywhere. We got to our room, and it was very chilly in there, so we turned the heat up and then went out for dinner. Got back, the room was still freezing, so... More

Fell below Best Western standards. Didn't like location as it was in the middle of apartments and industrial parks. Nearest restaurant although close was hard to get to. on site bar had very limited food choices and bartender lacked in the customer service area.

We made our annual trip to St Paul to meet our son who flew in from Hawaii for work. We all had a welcoming, comfortable experience, including our pet who was there for his seventh visit. The Best Western PLUS Bandana Square is a hidden gem with perfect, easy access to the entire metro area. Friendly staff, pleasant accommodations, great... More

I found it online and booked. For $129/night I was expecting nicer, more modern amenities. If you're looking for Raddsion- Ramada/ Marriott-esque this isn't it. But it's a good middle ground between those and like, super 8. The bed wasn't the worst ever but it wasn't great, either. There's no way to adjust the temperature in the room yourself -... More

Our daughter found this hotel for our trip to visit her. It's out in an industrial area but we found it quite charming. The hotel has been built inside an old train station,it maintains much of the structure and we enjoyed our stay. The included breakfast was fine, the room was nicely done and what my wife really liked were... More

My family has stayed here several times because it is close to the U of M hospital where I had brain surgery. I keep returning to this hotel for my follow up appointments because of the charm. It was used to fix trains and still has the tracks running through the building and old wooden beams. My little boy thought... More

Best Western Bandana Square is atmospherically different than any other hotel. At first it may seem strange, but you'll grow to love the break from the normal cookie-cutter hotels! Additionally the staff is awesome! You get the sense that the people that are employed there enjoy their job and understand their client's needs. I would recommend this place to anyone.

I really wanted to like this hotel. It's built inside an old train shop, it's close to downtown St. Paul, and it's reasonably priced. But the design means loud guestrooms. Many overlook either the pool or the breakfast area. We were in an interior room (220) which meant noise from the pool until 10:30 pm (though it was supposed to... More

Stayed at Best Western Bandana Square when my daughter was a patient at Gillette hospital. Is a really cool hotel. Doesn't feel like your stereotype hotel it feels much more like home and the decor is like bringing the outdoors in. It was an old train station and still has alot of that charm with it with the railroad ties... More
