Always clean, very nice hotel. Great restaurant and lounge with excellent food! Easy access to major highways and close to many great stores for great shopping. The only hotel in this area for me. Very helpful staff, makes every stay relaxing and fun.

Always nice to be greeted with a smile and by name. That's how the Best Western in White Bear Lake, MN does it. From there it is as if you are at home except on the road. Nick and Rachel are true professionals in the hospitality business.

The White Bear Country Inn is a fantastic value. I would highly recommend going out of your way to stay at this facility when you are in the area. We not only used the restaurant for food and cocktails but the pool and hot tub are wonderful. My grandkids loved swimming in a clean and well kept pool with plenty... More

Bed was too soft and sagged, bad for the back. Seems like our room and much of the hotel needs an update. We had 25 rooms for a wedding, I was the father of the bride and arranged the stay, but I did not receive any special recognition.

Location in White Bear Lake is fabulous…quaint little town near a lake about 30 mins from Minneapolis/St. Paul international airport. Far enough away to feel secluded, but close enough not to be a long commute. I was in town for a wedding and the entire wedding party and family stayed at the hotel. Great little restaurant and rooftop bar. Plus... More

From the moment you walk in the front door, you realize this is not your ordinary hotel. The lobby is welcoming as are the staff. Rooms are updated, clean and comfortable. Only complaint about my room was the lack of a true desk. There was a table with chairs, but between the lamp and ice bucket, there wasn't much room... More

This is a great hotel in a safe little burb of the twin Cities. Adequate amenities and great services located throughout the town. Visit Kowalski's Market for lunch!!!! Only recommendation. Ensure your room is not near the vending machines, elevators or near the cleaning staff room or laundry room. The walls are paper thin and if you a light sleeper... More
