Ecliptic hotel, but needs a refresh! Parking is confusing, and could use some clarifying... but it is validated, even though the ramp says no overnight parking. The lobby is cute and cozy, however there was a weird smell as you walk in. Staff were inviting and helpful. Our room had a balcony and was spacious, but again could use a... More

I spent four nights at the Lowell Inn while attending a classic car meet in Stilwater. The lobby was fine, staff courteous though through a mix-up I had to wait for my room well into the late afternoon. I used the stairs to get to the 3rd floor, I'm sure there is an elevator but I never bothered to use... More

An experience to remember. We stayed in the honeymoon suite and the lights kept turning off and on. I got freaked out, so we turned on the tv to ground ourselves. Shortly after the closed caption popped on by itself. I turned it off about 5 times before we deemed it haunted by a deaf ghost. Creepy, but I love... More

I was a little hesitant to book a room at this hotel, but we wanted to be close to downtown Stillwater. I was not disappointed. The staff was friendly, even overly friendly some mornings. The rooms were decent, nothing exceptional. This is not a modern hotel, so don't feel like it should be. It was great walking around Stillwater and... More

At a wedding reception in my sons recovered alcoholic of two years. He is the groom. They refused to allow us to bring nonalcohol beer in for him. He insisted on charging a $12 corkage fee per bottle. Clearly they do not support recovered alcoholics here. Is the worst customer service I've ever seen in my entire life. There is... More

I was absolutly appalled. NEVER have I been to an establishment where the staff treated their guests so poorly. It was as if the staff was far superior from their customer. We planned a wedding reception for my family members from out of state. We thought historic Lowell Inn would be a perfect venue and, not mention, is in beautiful... More

We had our annual family get-together at the Lowell Inn July 18-20, 2014, booking 6 rooms for 12 women. Most of the rooms were in the original section and were really charming, quirky and fun rooms. I stayed in room 204 in the newly annexed section and while entirely acceptable, it was a disappointment as the décor was so non... More

We have stayed here a number of times and we enjoy this hotel. Yes it is on the older side, but they do have some modern rooms, I would rather say it has character. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are quiet. The last one had a curtained bathroom, but that was ok, it did not bother us. The... More

Hubby and I stayed in room 219 for a quick get away. Location is ideal - parking is included and Stillwater can be a challenge with parking so that was worth it. Hotel is within easy walking distance of shops and restaurants. Hotel room was clean but starting to show it's wear. Room was pretty with stained glass windows (... More

This is a historic hotel very close to downtown. If you are looking for a modern hotel do not stay here as it is very historic. However, the beds were comfortable and clean and the water is hot. The coffee is excellent.
