My husband and I stay here several times a year. We love the location. We stayed here on 12-12-14 for our anniversary. We had a busy day of shopping and instead of going out for dinner thought we would eat at the restaurant. If you decide to check the menus online, be forewarned that they are old. The server told...

We had a benefit here last weekend and just want to say the service was beyond great. Every staff member was pleasant and helpful and went out of there way to please us. I would definitely recommend this hotel and banquet center to my good friends and people I don't know.

My family ran a large cancer benefit for a family member on November 22, 2014 at Hotel. The hotel assigned us a specific point person (Alison) that stayed with our event the entire time. The staff was well trained, professional and catered to all of our needs very promptly. The food for the event was terrific and wait staff was... More

We had a benefit here for my brother for about 250 people. I can't say enough good things about the friendly help we received from the staff. The facility was perfect for this kind of event. We also stayed the night in one of the hotels suites....wow!....fabulous views of downtown Stillwater and the St Croix river.

Booked at this hotel for our anniversary weekend. When making the reservation I was offered a 'romantic' room with a private deck over looking the St. Croix at $309 a night, $370 after taxes. For about $740 for the weekend, this what we got.... Loud machinery (fork lifts and a crane to lift huge pumpkins) and crowds of noisy people,... More

The location of this hotel is great!! Right next to the river, historic bridge and the Main Street. Stillwater is a beautiful town and would love to visit again. However, I would rather stay at a small local B&B than this hotel!! The Hotel is very dated and needs some investing. Perhaps some people like that but I found the... More

The staff was very friendly. The bed could have used a softer mattress. We were on the side where the balcony was facing the street, not the river so view was not good. But someone has to take the other side of the hotel. Did enjoy the room though. Irish pub was nice but paid $11.00 for 2 tap beers,... More

Went for special birthday stay for my husband. Paid extra to get river view and whirlpool in room. TV didn't work, maintenance guy spent 30 minutes working on it but was unable to get it working. Decided to use whirlpool. Filled it with water and pushed button to start. Whirlpool didn't work. If all that wasn't enough, there was people... More

I am dreadfully sorry about your recent stay. I'm sure maintenance did all they could to have your stay as pleasant as possible, but with any hotel, things do happen. Again, we do apologize for the inconvenience and we hope we can make this up to you in the future. More

Nice location with a stunning view. We chose this location to be the central home base for a family wedding. It was very close to the rehearsal dinner on a paddleboat as well as the reception. The Stillwater downtown night life was very exciting for all of the guests and the hospitality at both of the Water Street Inn libation... More

River side room with balcony - viewing bridge and river traffic was fun. Room and bed comfortable. Our stay was during the week (weekends are crazy crowded) and we were able to get an upgrade at a fair price. The location is in downtown Stillwater. Many restaurants, boat rides, antique shops within an easy walk. streets of town. Very quaint... More
