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

Stayed here for two nights during a quick trip to St. Paul to see Garrison Keillor live. I requested a quiet room, and that's definitely what I got (a corner room upstairs). Room seemed very clean, and the bed was notably comfy. They do have a pool and fitness center but I wasn't around enough to try them. Biggest problem... More

I stay at this hotel often while traveling to St. Paul or near the University of MN campus. THey have a free shuttle which is very helpful and also excellent breakfast and staff. The hotel is beautiful inside and build around an old train station. Ample, free parking are also perks when you are talking Twin Cities hotels!

Need a pet-friendly hotel in the Twin Cities of Mpls/StPaul? This is IT! Great value, great location, absolutely wonderful property. Cannot recommend it highly enough. Only downside... our bed was too soft. But that's a personal preference and nobody can make all of the people happy all of the time.

This was a very pleasant place to stay. We ordered in from Gabe Restaurant, who delivered very good meals. Our grandkids swam and that was very convenient to sit outside our room in comfortable chairs to watch them. The breakfast was pretty good and located in the lobby area which was very cute.

The location is good if you want to be close to the U of MN or the state fair but it is far removed from everything else. The neighborhood is office park/some residential, no restaurants; you need a car to survive. The room was a decent size but....the extra charge for pool view was only justified if I went out... More

Very unique hotel. Good conveniences, bar with some food items, pool, hot tub and serviceable continental breakfast. Our room was well designed (2 bedroom suite) but nothing to sneeze at. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. Special shout-out to 3rd shifter Ben who took good care of us! Will come back!

Rooms were okay, the hotel was nice with a lot of breakfast choices. It was near the State Fair and that's what we wanted. It's a little pricey due to the area, but it's cute being an old railroad transfer yard. Little noisy, could hear the outside hall door open and close each time someone came in. We were woke... More
