We had a wonderful stay at this old hotel with a group of forty other bikers. The hotel staff arranged for us to use the ballroom to bring our bikes in and meet. We were provide with a nice breakfast buffet each morning. Our rooms were spacious and clean. Ours overlooked the lift bridge and river. Tanks to all the... More

Decided to stay overnight in Stillwater on a whim. This was the only property with rooms available, so we spent the $360 for a parlor suite. The building is charming on the outside, but on the inside, the carpet is dirty, there was no soap in the bathroom and there was a fleece blanket draped across the hard queen bed... More

We reserved 10 rooms, had a small banquet room as our hospitality room. Everyone said their room was comfortable, clean, and very spacious. We were all treated with such care, the food was the best, we could not had picked a better place to have the 28th Navy USS Jeffers reunion! Thank you!

I stayed here for a bachelorette party and the customer service experienced at this hotel was some of the worst I have ever had. We did not get a heads up ahead of time that we could only park one car per room in the parking lot and were told that we would have to figure out other places to... More

This was our first trip to Stillwater & what a quaint little town! Numerous shops & restaurants & stunning views of the St. Croix River from our room. The hotel is located in the heart of everything, so once we parked our car, there was no need to get in it again until we left. The hotel is a historical... More

After we attended our friends wedding on a St. Croix River paddle boat, we returned to the Water Street Inn for some drinks and dinner. Our friends, and a few of their friends and family were staying at the Water Street Inn. Reservations were booked months in advance. Apparently that wasn't good enough for them to plan to staff the... More

Steer clear of this hotel! It is over-rated & over-priced. In general, it is shabby & run down. The rooms are dimly lit, probably to hide all of the maintenance they need, & gloomy. We waited almost the entire day to have our room made up on the second day. Patrons who stay a second night are definitely second-class citizens.... More

When we arrived there was a confusion with our reservation and it had inadvertently been reserved for a later date, We had not checked our e-mail confirmation.Luckily there was a room available that evening.

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
