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.

Stayed for two nights because my daughter had a state competition in the cities. We reserved 5 rooms. Mold in one of the bathrooms and food chunks (I hope it was food) all over the curtains in one room. All carpets were heavily stained and carpet in all bedrooms did not appear to have been vacuumed very well - one... More

Our corner room had no wifi, unlike the previous time we stayed there. Our first stay - no complaints! "Simulated" eggs were hot only one morning of the three - ice cold one morning, and unedible. The location did serve our needs for taking a pet to the U of Minnesota Vet Clinic. Staff was very nice and helpful, parking... More

We made our 4th trip to ST. Paul and stay d at the Bandana Square Best Western. We felt like we came home for the week. We only left the hotel once and they had a driver that took us to our destination and then picked us up! The rest of the time we enjoyed the employees as if they... More

Breakfast very good, in and out. Classes were next to the Best Western and this was 5-6 time staying there. It was just easy for me to drive 220 miles and not run around the Twin Cities. Rooms clean and not bother by other guests

The hotel has a very unique set up, which is pretty cool. But the rooms and bathrooms need some serious overhauling. Breakfast wasn't the best either. We didnt get a chance to use the pool but they do have a separate little small pool for the little ones.

Aging but solid location. Needs a make-over and more attenion to details, i.e.-cigarette butts in entry and sidewalk. need to re-stock breakfast items until the time is expired.

We (team I coach)stayed once again, and it always works out great. The new elevator is a plus for us, and helps with gear. We stay twice a year, and will be back. Continental breakfast is a plus for group travel.
