A former train depot, this might have remained such. The hallway rugs appear to not have been cleaned in years or they are long overdue for replacement. The internet which is complimentary is useless, you will be kicked off it at least 20 times in a hour. So think of it at best as intermittent internet service. But a little... More

We were there due to my daughter having surgery at Shriners Hospital. We have stayed here many times due to the awesome discount rate for the hospital. We have never had an issue with the staff or the hotel itself. This was our first time experiencing internet issues. It was a problem, because due to it being during the week,... More

Thin walls! I heard everything that was going on in the hotel. I liked this hotel for convenience of being located a couple miles from the U of M, but I would have drove farther to have a better experience. No pop/vending machines in the hotel. The only thing they have is a selection behind the counter. A can of... More

I'm not an electron, so superposition isn't one of my capabilities. Therefore, I can't say that all the rooms are like the one I stayed in but be warned of room 204. I could hear EVERYTHING, left, right, behind, and below me. And not just me, my friend was underscoring this more than me, after she happened to stay one... More

We have stayed at the Best Western PLUS Bandana Square several times a year for the last 7 years. We have always been pleased with the friendliness and efficiency of the staff. In the last few years, the amenities have been improved.

I have stayed at this hotel for 3 years at Christmas time while visiting relatives in St. Paul. It was renovated last year and you can see the upgrades, including a small bar area, which is nice because there is no food onsite. At least you can have a drink. The rooms in the interior of the hotel are HOT... More

The staff at this hotel are very professional and friendly. They really go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The front desk staff are especially friendly. Jena is exceptional. The location is very convenient. Many things to do in the area.

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
