Our family of 8 attended the Thanksgiving buffet. It was lovely. A very popular place for folks to celebrate but even though it was crowded we had a wonderful time. The food was fresh and the staff was tireless in changing it out. One of our party uses a wheelchair and when making the reservation the staff discussed accessibility options...

Just got back home from one-night stay at Afton House Inn. Wife and I had a half-price coupon from St. Paul paper. The Inn was fascinating, the oldest hotel in Minnesota, remarkable ambience from that, long narrow hallways, many views of St. Croix River Marina, cries of seagulls. On the first Monday night in December, we were the only guests...

RM 7. I brought my wife to celebrate her birthday. Jacuzzi did not work ever after troubleshooting with staff. Since the price of the room is really Justified because there is a two-person jacuzzi, and the jacuzzi did not work, I asked to be compensated and requested a discount on the room. I thought that was a very reasonable and...

As we visited in the late fall of November, the Inn was quiet, with one a couple other guests apparent to us. The desk staff was perhaps a little reserved, but overall friendly, skilled and professional. We had one of the Riverview rooms, with a comfortable bed and room size. The fireplace is a cozy touch, but doesn't add heat....

The gluten free pizza was fabulous. Try the Stella gluten free Apple cider. Great bartender and service. Good lighting and friendly staff! The walking paths near the Inn made for a nice after dinner stroll along the river.

we specifically mentioned it was our anniversary, and were looking for romantic & elegant. Far from it!! Hot tub took 40 mins. to fill, and sounded like an old Harley. Also chunks of dirt kept coming out of the faucets. Very small, cramped room. Not the cleanest. For $360 we could have stayed in a luxury hotel with amenities. We...

Over the past several years, we have enjoyed a late lunch at The Current (and prior to that, The Catfish Saloon) following our annual apple-picking event with family and grandchildren. This year 7 of us came for a late lunch. After calling ahead, we were immediately seated, and that's the best thing I can say about our experience. Service was...

The breakfast was very good and the staff was pleasant. The room was extremely small and noisy. The windows were dirty, there was only a 8x10 mirror in the bath, and the tv was high on a shelf making it nearly useless. The location was great with walking paths and the St. Croix river at the doorstep. Not worth the...
