My wife and I stayed there this last 4th of July weekend. Talk about a TRAINWRECK. From the person on the speaker to let us into their "secure" parking lot (It's a gate, nothing secure about it) who was overly rude, to the completely run down and shabby rooms. We really wish we would have followed the other reviews of... More

We've been to the Water Street Inn many times - and we love the relaxed patio with a view of the St Croix Rover and the Stillwater Lift Bridge. Last night, we had the best service we have had in the past five or so years at the Water Street Inn - thank you Devan for being our server. It's... More

We recently had our wedding reception at the Water Street Inn (May 2015), and we couldn't have asked for a better venue. The location was absolutely perfect, the vintage/antique feel of the hotel was great fit for our vintage themed wedding, the staff was friendly, and the Event Director, Allison Young, was absolutely fabulous! Allison was there was every step... More

We had company from out of town and spent the day boating on the St Croix River. We began our day with a great brunch at the Inn. The Inn is a bit shabby but is charming anyway in a funky sort of way. The wait staff was very Minnesota nice and we had a very good meal.

Our mission is to find a suitable hotel right in the heart of a traditional downtown so we can walk to shop, dine and drink. This was perfect for our mission. We walked in to get a room for that evening. We were greeted immediately and given a discounted rate (Sunday night) for a river view room. Free parking in... More

Very old, Victorian style building. Downtown, close to everything. Staff was friendly and helpful. Whirlpool in the room, balcony. Look forward to staying again. Close to the restaurants and the shops.

We stayed here for 1 night for the Stillwater Half-marathon. The location is great--right on the water, making for great views and easy access to parks and restaurants. The hotel staff was wonderfully accommodating to my pre-race needs. They emailed in advance to ask if we had any special requests, and graciously agreed to send up hot water, a bowl,... More

We have stayed here 4 or 5 times before and always enjoyed the hotel, even though it is old, we enjoyed the charm and service. This last weekend we did not have a great experience. The air conditioner in the room made a very load noise. We let it go the first night and slept with the balcony door open.... More

Whoever wrote the Apr 18 2015 as 'horrible' must have had some ax to grind. Service was exceptional and staff was anything but rude. One note is that there are different menus for different areas and times. The best menu is for the main restaurant after 5pm.

Thank you for your wonderful review! As you noted, we do have a fine dining menu that starts at 5pm and we sure appreciate when people take their time to write a positive review for our restaurant as well! More

Perfect location in downtown Stillwater. Right on the water, by parks, restaurants and amazing scenery. Our room was very nice, the bed was comfortable and all the people at the hotel were friendly and helpful.
