I think this hotel has seen better days. We stayed in Room #330 - on of the historic rooms. It was clean but the overall maintenance has much to be desired. There were two tones of paint in the bathroom (something had been removed from the wall and not painted over), replaced wall tiles that didn't match, very goopy repair... More

I enjoyed stepping back in time but it felt a little creepy. At $160 for 2 beds(during the week), I do expect more. There is no fridge, micro..or any extra amenities. Should be $99 a night. If like nostalgia stay here. Staff were all very courteous.

Room was not clean. Pins from previous guest on the night stand, a phone cord was left beside the bed, and waste paper very visible under the TV cabinet. All would have been noticed with simple vacuuming and wiping after the previous guest. When we saw these things my wife asked "I wonder if they remembered to change the sheets... More

I really liked this place, which was conveniently located and comfortable. Our room was in the newly renovated section, which is closer to the parking garage next door. Stillwater is a cute town and only one block from the inn. Breakfast is not included, which was unexpected for the price paid. The interior decorating is somewhat confusing with a mish... More

Reservations and check in was okay. They do charge your credit card a fee when you book a room and deduct it from your total bill. At check in you are charged the total amount due. This makes extra work for all involved if you have to change rooms because of an air conditioner not working and the difference in... More

This hotel is so very charming! From beginning to end, the staff is amazingly gracious and kind. The entire hotel is a treasure of history. We loved our long weekend here! My pre-teen daughter even adored its charm and comfort! The restaurant's breakfast was delicious (fruit cup was fabulous). We didn't dine there for dinner...Stillwater has an abundant restaurant selection.... More

We stayed for one night in the historic wing. Pretty, comfortable room. Free WiFi. We wanted a room downtown so we could walk everywhere. This was perfect. Other than the Water Street Inn and B&Bs, this is the only Inn in downtown. The "chain" hotels are all driving distance away. Public parking ramp attached and hotel validates parking, so it... More

On the spur of the moment, we decided to go to Stillwater over Memorial Day weekend. So happy that Lowell Inn had availability! We stayed in the original section of the Inn and it was great. Many interesting antiques and very cozy. The room was an adequate size with a great shower.

I had the opportunity to host 10 out of town business guests for a two day meeting. The staff, the rooms and all of the dinning options and activities within walking distance made it a huge success. There are so many excellent restaurants in Stillwater and the Dinning at the Lowell Inn does not disappoint. The rooms were so full... More

My wife and I wanted to take a weekend trip and experience Stillwater. We wanted to be close to the historic downtown without paying B&B prices. We tried the Lowell Inn as an alternative. The location is superb. Our room was in the historic wing. It was small, but adequate. If you need a desk, dresser/TV center, closet, two sinks,... More
