My husband and I spent March 17th at the Water Street Inn for a our first "vacation" without the kids in 3 years. We had a wonderful time. This hotel is older and run down, but it is a neat change from regular hotels. Our room was clean and the staff was very pleasant. My only complaints are that it... More

First of all just because this hotel is listed on bedandbreakfast.com, don't believe it. It is NOT a B&B. We had a mediocre, but not free, breakfast here. The room was clean, but the furnishings were in dire need of repair or replacement. The doors of the tv cabinet/armoire had been ripped off, leaving a very large, unrepaired gouge and... More

I was sent to Stillwater on business and the hotel was selected for me. All the amenities associated with modern stays were there including free wi-fi, close restaurants, and accessible audio visual equipment for our powerpoint presentations. The staff was generous with smiles and especially welcoming in the pub where we ate 2 of the 3 nights we were there.... More

This winter's been warm, but it's still long, so it was very nice get out of town, see the river views and relax in the Hot Tub with a fire place. We enjoyed a special theme meal that was excellent and drank the specialty drinks. The Inn wasn't too full, so it was quiet and a little slow paced. The... More

By definition, a bed and breakfast facility provides me with lodging and complimentary breakfast. Not so at Water Street Inn. To my surprise, breakfast had to be purchased as an extra option above our room rate. Why was I surprised? Nowhere on their website and at no time during the reservation process was I informed that breakfast was NOT included.... More

I'm sorry for the misunderstanding. The Water Street Inn is an Historic Inn, it is not a Bed and Breakfast. There are some websites that combine Historic Inns and B & B as the same and it does cause some confusion. More

The Water Street Inn is the worst place I have stayed. It was nothing like the brochure I had looked at. The rooms are out dated, wallpaper was peeling off, and the worst was the mold in the shower and scum on the shower head. I was disgusted! When I talked to the owner Craig he told me the room...

My husband and I wanted a nice place to stay in downtown Stillwater, so it would be close to the bars and antique shops. The staff was friendly and the room was clean, BUT... it's old. And yes, the hotel is supposed to be "old fashion" in decorating, but the furnishings left much to be desired. For $139 a night,... More

We have stayed at the Water Street Inn probably 6 times, always as a quick one-two night getaway. Each time, we have had a great experience. We love the old charm of the building and rooms. We love the fact that there's a nice restaurant and pub within the building. You really never have to leave, if you don't want... More

Our room and furnishings were beautiful, but the wedding reception downstairs made it too loud to sleep. The front desk moved us to a HUGE suite at the other end of the hotel. The location is so close to downtown you can easily wander to the local shops and restaurants. The on-site pub was freezing so we had dinner in... More

We first stayed at the Water Street Inn the summer of 2008, that was my future husband's and my choice for a short getaway. It is not that far from where we live, but once we get there we feel relaxed and stress free so much so that my husband has started calling it our "summer cabin." The Water Street... More
