The hospitality was great! Cathy was very sweet! It was fun to have drinks and hor dourves brought to our room when we arrived. The fireplace and large whirlpool added a romantic touch. The breakfast was so delicious!!! We will be coming back for another stay in the future!

We stayed overnight at the Staples Inn for a quick getaway. All around, it was a restful and welcoming retreat. We stayed in the Riverview room and loved relaxing in the sunroom. We were greeted with wine and a cheese plate brought to our room the afternoon we arrived, and my personal favorite touch was the early morning coffee delivery... More

Hospitality was outstanding, made to feel like we were home. Group of 6 stayed for three nights, we enjoyed the home like atmosphere, sitting in front of the fireplace, talking and relaxing. Coffee delivered to our room every morning and breakfast that was delicious and well presented. I would highly recommend the Aurora Staples to anyone that wants a clean,... More

My wife and I took a post-Christmas get away for just one night. We received excellent service, in fact, since no other guests were there the night we stayed, we had the chance for a free upgrade and we chose the Carriage House Suite. It was beautiful! The hosts were kind as well and served an awesome breakfast. We highly... More

Outstanding visit that far exceeded our expectations! Our family of 9 stayed for three nights over a long weekend in early December. The Inn was beautifully decorated for the Holidays, very warm and inviting. We had our best friends from England and our three adult children plus their significant others, so 9 in total. Cathy and Jerry were wonderful hosts,... More

I brought my wife here for our first anniversary after finding favorable reviews online, and noting that it was fairly close to the action in downtown Stillwater. When we checked in, Cathy greeted us by name, gave us a tour of the home, and offered us wine and small plates of crackers and fruit. The home is gorgeous; high ceilings,... More

The Inn was the right choice for our getaway.....we did all the usual things....sightseeing, shopping, eating lunch at great places, and went to the spa....but the one thing that was not usual was at the end of the day.....we did not want to go out ....we ordered in and sat and visited by the fireplace! Jerry made sure there was... More

Wife and I stayed one night for a relaxing escape from the Twin Cities. The Aurora Staples is a beautiful mansion with excellent hosts/owners. Room was clean and very cozy, breakfast and snacks were delicious, and hosts were very friendly and helpful. Location is great, very close to Stillwater's main area for restaurants and shopping, but being a few blocks... More

Cathy and Jerry were excellent hosts!! They were very inviting and super helpful when asking questions about the town and where we should go to eat and other activities. We loved how they even had menus for each restaurant in town for you to look at. We are still in college and so even though this was a little pricier... More

We were given a gift certificate to stay at the Aurora Staples Inn in Stillwater. We decided Christmastime would be a good time to visit and we were right! The inn was decorated so beautifully! Our room was gorgeous, with a little Christmas tree in the room. We sat out on our little porch in the morning and watched the... More
