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!!

The filthiest hotel we have ever stayed at. The hotel has amazing potential. Great building and location but beyond that nothing to recommend. I would stay far, far away. On a positive note most of the staff tried but they really did not have much to work with.

I stay here annually every March for the Boys MN State HS Hockey Tourney & I think this was our 10th year & we will continue to stay as we just love it!! Great service & comfy rooms! Location is easy & there a lot of nearby things to do or places to shop.

We enjoyed staying at this unique hotel, which was once a train service area. I was quite satisfied with our room, however, the bathrooms are very small and needed some attention to detail. Others in our group did not enjoy their stay and had a hard time sleeping due to a party next door that went well into the morning... More

Stopped in to get a room, we were able to check in right away (1:00pm). Checkout is an hour later than most (noon). Room smelled and WAS super clean! Nice pool, spa, breakfast...always a pleasure to stay there!

The Hotel was nice, very helpful Staff. they actually had a kiddy pool, a large pool and a hot tub. easy in and out, close to a lot of eating establishments and stores. Very quick trip to Downtown, for entertainment purposes. The rooms were large enough for a family of 5, the pool side rooms are great, with patio doors... More

We have stayed at the Best Western Bandana Square at least 4 nights/year over the last 5 years, whenever we visit our son at UMN-Twin Cities. Our room is always quiet and clean, and we love the charm of the vintage railroad building! It is convenient to the campus, Como Park, and other destinations. A very good value.
