This hotel is absolutely beautiful!! Well, if you like antique type of buildings. This hotel is the old train depo. The tracks still run through the building. Rooms are huge!! Breakfast is full of all sorts of different foods. The swimming pool and hot tub looked very inviting although we did not try them out. The entire hotel and grounds... More

We stay at the Bandana Square every two weeks. My Grandson has appointments at the Shriners Hospital. Our drive is about 5 1/2 hours. We usually see Lindsay when we check in and out. Lindsay is polite and informs us of attractions and things that might be going on. Wendy puts on an awesome breakfast in the morning. A great... More

This Best Western is a bit dated, yet for us the stay was exactly what we needed/wanted. It was close to where we wanted to be, offered breakfast, was clean and overall quiet. Front desk folks were friendly and helpful, staff that attended to breakfast did their jobs nicely. Food levels got down a few times, but we were also... More

I have been putting my family up for over 10 years at this hotel, 1-2 times a year, plus encouraging friends to stay there when they visit. This has involved about $600-$800 of revenue for the hotel each year as there are multiple day stays. I booked a room as usual, although this time I had almost enough reward points... More

My family enjoyed the train theme, the pool, kid's pool and hot tub. The outside area was lovely to walk around as it was nicely decorated with flowers in old train carts. I loved having 4 pillows on the comfy bed. The room had a good sized fridge and microwave. We had Green Mill delivery service for dinner. The area... More

My stay was a good one. Very fast check-in and check-out, and my room was quite large for just a basic one. The bed was comfortable, and the overall decor was quite interesting (in a good way) because it is an old converted train station.

Very nice hotel in a great location for us--easy to get around St. Paul and Minneapolis. A hidden gem. Great value for the high quality. Very clean and comfortable room and nice pool and hot tub. Excellent breakfast, though serving area a bit narrow, though dining area was fine.

Stayed here with 3 and 1 year old. Kiddy pool was great. Breakfast selection was good - pancake and waffle maker, yogurt bar. Eggs and breakfast meat. Cereal, toast and muffins. Comforters are really thick and warm - too warm for us. It would have been nice to have an inbetween blanket. Room to set up our pack -in-play. Staff... More

This hotel is extremely unique and the staff is very friendly and helpful. It is a historic building that was a train station and the charm is definitely still there. I have been staying at this hotel since 2011. I recently stayed here in July 2016, previously it had been just less than two years since my last visit. I... More

I stayed at Best Western Bandana Square in St Paul, MN because of medical for my partner. Sometimes we both stayed and sometimes just I stayed. I have a dog - and this Hotel was great about accommodating my dog. Even has treats for them at the front desk. The staff are getting used to my visits!
