My husband and I were driving through Minnesota and happened to fall upon the cute little city of Stillwater. This hotel was amazing, Victorian style, a lot of history, great restaurant and bar, very clean, and friendly atmosphere. The rooms are large and each had a Jacuzzi and fireplace which made it very Cozy. I would highly recommend this hotel... More

I stayed here last weekend for a wedding. I had no problems booking a room or checking in an hour early on a Saturday. It's a historic building, so it's NOT going to look upgraded. It is a beautiful building and I received excellent guest service from the check in to the brunch buffet the next morning. The rooms are... More

We stayed here for a wedding this summer. I loved the outside bar. It was playing live music which made it more enjoyable. It's not the cleanest place I've stayed but it was decent. Rooms were okay. Next time I stay in Stillwater, I plan to stay somewhere else though.

We stayed at the Water Street Inn Friday, October 9. The physical room was okay, aside from the fake crown molding in the wallpaper. It was clean, but not well maintained (wallpaper peeling, and stains on the carpet, vintage 1980's TV). Our primary issue was noise. The music from the bar across the street kept us up until 2am, and... More

Yes it's Victorian but also needs upgrade. Why do you have to go all the way to the lobby to get a table outside it inside. Very confusing. We got the "last room" and know why. Said it was a suite with fireplace and hot tub. Yes but who need that when it's 90 degrees. Plus it was on second... More

Our room was very large, high ceilings, huge windows. In-room jacuzzi was a nice touch. Furnishings are older nicely appointed. Great location right on the river and the old lift bridge. "Free breakfast" items are limited but can get a discount of other menu items. Bed was comfy, no ice available. The street noise really marred my stay.

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
