We hosted our daughter's wedding here and most of the bridal party and many guests stayed here as well. The location is prime being only 1 block from Main Street in scenic downtown Stillwater. While the older portions of the facility show signs of wear and aging overall the inn is lovely. The newer banquet facility section was excellent for our event.
However, our first introduction to the Lowell Inn was an extremely surely 'gentleman' working the front desk whose response to routine questions about reservations and room availability came across as extremely rude. On several other occasions during the weekend this same person was consistently abrupt and rude toward guests including many in our wedding party.
Otherwise the staff was very pleasant and helpful.
The food in the restaurant was good and the ambiance pleasant. The food for the wedding reception was excellent. The staff working the reception were all wonderful as well.
