The garbage truck Jared us out of a sound sleep at 5:50 am and we wanted to sleep in. Well, that didn't happen. We told the hotel manager, Mitch, and he could care less and let us walk out the door unhappy. The bed was really hard also.

Sorry for the noise from the Street. That is good and bad about our location. You are downtown and able to walk to everything Downtown Stillwater has to offer. But there is also business going on everyday, trash pick-up has to happen along with deliveries, and snow removal in the winter, street cleaning in the summer. These need to happen... More

If you want a relaxing time: skip this! we were kept awake until 1:30 am by MULTIPLE drunk groups leaving the onsite Charlie's bar (they spewed VERY FOUL language...6 instances.!) The front desk would not 'help' and when we spoke VERY NICELY with suggestions to the Mgr. the next a.m. he said there was nothing he could do until he... More

Visited on a Thurs before Christmas. Different room than last year. We had a friend decide to stay over last minute; I called front desk for a rollaway - which their website states is $15. I was told they have no roll aways and that it is a fire code for a third person to stay in our room which... More

Good location. Love Stillwater. Hotel staff was nice. Building needs updating. Peeling wall paper. Bed much bigger then mattress. Atrium moldy. Clean, just old. Very small old TV. Period furnishings. Big room. Noisy.. We could hear wedding band from our 3 rd floor room.

I took my Grandson and his Grandmother to your Santa Breakfast today, December 19th and filed my first restaurant complaint with the Restaurant Manager. The only response I got to my complaint was defending her choices. NO CUSTOMER SERVICE ATTITUDE – Stay away from the Santa Breakfast. #1 Santa had zero charisma. Santa just sat there lifeless and did not... More

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend getaway. We actually heard about Stillwater from Minnesota Traveler TV show and thought lets check it out. The hotel was amazing - historic rooms which were HUGE and the best part was the jetted tub and fireplace. We were able to walk around town and enjoy the brewery, great food, etc.... More

Rooms were spacious and cleanliness in the room was just OK. But the carpet outside the room, in the lift and elsewhere require immediate replacement Else be prepared to get yourselves a new pair of shoes ! The food is great and is always LARGE portions.The hotel occupies the most scenic spot overlooking the STILL water !

I am in the hospitality industry and had to say to the Front of the house manager, "this was how he referred to himself," ..."I would never speak to a customer that way" His rudeness and unprofessionalism came about at 8:55 pm on a Thursday night, when we were trying to order room service. We were in our room and... More

We were told that they would provide a crib for our infant and then after we called the desk an hour+ later they explained that two of their three cribs were recently stolen and the last one was being used. They offered to reimburse $30 to us for the inconvenience. When we checked out the next day the manager treated... More

The staff was friendly and accommodating and the food in the restaurants was truly excellent. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. But very little space in the bathroom to put your things when getting ready. And while I'm sure its challenging to maintain a historic property, it appears maintenance was lacking in many areas in the the... More
