We like to stay at this hotel because of its location, comfort, and price, and because they are pet friendly. I am grateful that we can bring our dogs with where ever we go. BUT....one of my dogs found a wooden clothes pin somewhere in the room and by the time I realized what she was chewing on it was... More

Because of location/price, I stay at this hotel. I am not a super fussy person, as long as it is safe and clean, I am usually satified. I do like the stone building...it really is an neat thing. Just no 'exceptionals' at this Best Western. I am filling out this survey after staying 5 times. Here are the issues I... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I'm sorry the black out shades in your room didn't quite cover the entire area and we went back to that room and made a repair to that. If you do join us again, after our remodel we added a sundries area located near the front desk for your convenience.... More

I stayed here with friends and relatives for the St Paul Color Run. The night before the race we enjoyed the pools and found the staff very kid-friendly. The hotel's breakfast had a great selection of food for race day. We were able to return to the hotel to shower off all of the colors from "The Happiest 5K" the... More

Very pleasant and convenient to all things we wanted to see. The staff was very informative, and helpful. Took extra steps to ensure billing got corrected, Continental breakfast was very good. Our grandkids loved the idea that it was an old train repair shop. Very clean.

Excellent location for a hotel for families visiting their children at the Colleges and Universities in the area. Good standard of services at the hotel and very friendly staff. Would definitely recommend a stay at the hotel.

See previous comment square... The property has great potential but needs a few little maintenance issues handled, some management improvements and maybe employee training I could really envision how nice it would be during the winter with the huge ceiling and indoor swimming pool.

I stayed for two nights and had a wonderful experience. All the staff was helpful and the "market", it´s a great asset,if you want/need something last minute. The breakfast is very complete and i´ll call it a full and not a continental breakfast. The property has its own magic that transport you to an old railroad station, great shuttle service.... More

I stayed at this property, as it hosted the room block for my friend's wedding. The staff was very accommodating, especially the shuttle driver, Preston. He stayed past his schedule shift to pick up guests at the near by reception site. Thank you for a wonderful weekend and for being a friendly 'safe-ride' home!

Spent one night at this hotel --- was clean, nice pool area, quiet, decent continental breakfast. Convenient location to Como Park. I would recommend the hotel. Was a bit pricey but we needed to be in this area of St Paul.
