This was the fourth time staying at Water Street over the past couple years. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING has greatly improved. Big time. Not sure when Carl (manager) took over, but our experiences keep getting better and better and I can't help but think this comes down to the management. Absolutely can not beat the location, step outside the front door and you're right in the mix of the downtown with all the cute shops, fab restaurants and such. Step out the back door and the riverfront, park and any festival/show going on is taking place right at your feet. Once you park in the Inn's free parking lot, you never have to leave. We don't eat full meals at the pub or restaurant (we have our faves on the main drag) but you should be staying at this Inn just for the location and extremely helpful staff. Again, I must bring this back to management because every single staff person we talked with was so nice, professional and helpful. We've also stayed at B&Bs in Stillwater, which were nice for sure, but LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION which only the Inn meets. Sure, the rooms are outdated but it doesn't affect your stay, you have everything you need. Pay extra and get a room with the view of the river. The most recent room we stayed in, Room 218, perfect for us....quick jaunt up the stairs, a view to die for and the quirkiness of the vault bathroom. Wake up and go downstairs and have your coffee on the back deck and watch people/couples/families/singles on the riverfront. End the day with a drink on the back deck too, doing the same, watching people walking, talking, wading in the water, holding hands.
