This hotel has gone down hill. For the price of the room - you get nothing! Takes 45 mins to receive ice to your room and this is no funny. The rooms have nothing in them and the TV in the bedroom didn't even work. We have stayed here a few years back and the place was breathtaking, today it... More

I'm very sorry about your wait on ice that should not have happened, I talked with the front desk staff about and how important it is to take care of this in a timely manner. As for the TV we have just added a second TV to all our suites and we are still waiting on Comcast to get out... More

I see the response from the manager on a previous post and would like to say that his comment is reflective of the disappointment that my wife and I had when we stayed on July 10th 2010. The Price of the room was quoted at an alarming $270.00, WOW, I thought this was going to some fantastic place. From the... More

We came to Stillwater for a romantic getaway...The pictures of the hotel are deceiving. All materials in the room are in very poor condition and are made cheaply. The carpet as well as the blankets on the beds had stains and cigarette burn holes The room is depicted as elegant but instead is terribly trashy. We paid for a package... More

My wife and I visited The Water Street Inn in June of 2010. We should have looked at the reviews on Trip Advisor as most of them are accurate. We did not have many problems with the service per se although it was lack luster and seemed void of true "service" industry standards. The price was outrageous considering the accommodations....

We visited this hotel nine months prior and were shown 3 rooms, two suites and a regular room. The regular had one bed and the suites had two rooms with a bed in each room. We held those suites because we were having more 4 people (our children, not a party) in each suit. The hotel were well informed of... More

I would not recommend this place to my worst enemy. When we made reservations in February of 2010, we explained we needed 2 beds for 4 adults. The room we inquired about had a full size bed in one room, and a Murphy bed in another. We had a wedding reception there so we thought it would be good to... More

Their reservation was only for two people in each room. Not wanting to pay for the extra people. We are renovating the Inn and taking out some of the Murphy Beds. Any reservation that was made for more then two people are placed in a room that still has a Murphy Bed or a fold out. We are trying to... More

We had high hopes for this place, given that Stillwater itself is charming. The Inn itself, however, is old and run-down. The room we were in was oddly designed, poorly decorated, and not comfortable. The bed was like grandma's. Only redeeming quality was the porch we had that overlooked the St. Croix river. The restaurant / bar scene should be... More

The Water Street Inn is a little high priced if you are just looking for a quality hotel, lovely decor, atmosphere, some area's a little old and worn out looking, but everything was gave the feeling of being in a different time. Stayed with my mother, aunt and sister - in-law, during the week, we had a fun time and... More

This place smells. It is run down. The furniture is uncomfortable. The dining room service at breakfast was really bad. It is noisy in the rooms on the river side due to traffic crossing to and from Wisconsin on the adjacent street. On the flip side, the river side has a nice view of the St. Croix Valley and it...
