Stayed in one of the riverfront rooms on the modern side of the hotel and it was amazing. Great value and nice, modern luxury rooms. Be careful to note that the other side of the hotel is more outdated, so book accordingly to what you are looking for. I would say that the modern side of Water Street seems comparable to Lora or Crosby, but for a better price!

All we can say is “buyer beware” of what you’re getting for what price. We knew that our room was more expensive than usual, but we thought it was due to New Years. Six days before our stay a hotel rep calls explaining that there 2 packages for us to choose from that are included with our room. Whoohoo! So we picked one and clarified that this was included in our room price. Confirmed. They knew there was 2 of us and that this was our anniversary. Had a weird feeling, so called 2 days later just to confirm. Confirmed again by a different staff person. The day of our reservation we get a call. We will owe $$$ when we check in. what? We’re told the package was for 1 person. Who does that? Recapped the 2 confirmation calls. We’re told ok...he’ll take care of it. Get there to check in...we had to pay the extra $$$. Let me add that you can only cancel your reservation within 7 days of check in date. Note: 1st call came 6 days before...too late to cancel and receive refund. Mentioned this fiasco to several business owners in Stillwater. They were not surprised and had heard other such stories. So “buyer beware.”

We stayed in one of the new rooms, on the west (road) side. I would suggest requesting river view as the road was a little noisy over night. The room was freezing when we entered, part of their energy management system, but warmed up quickly. The room was new (October 2019?), so no major issues. The only comments on the room: the sliding barn door for the bathroom is VERY heavy for kids and doesn't give the greatest of privacy, and the room door didn't latch when left to close on it's own - a security issue. Our family ate dinner and breakfast from Charlies, the onsite bar/restaurant. The 'kid's menu' portions were AWESOME and very much worth the reasonable price.

Nice we can get away with fresh snow covering the streets, great place to snuggle up next to the fire. Good entertainment at the bar nice Irish music, food and drinks on point! good customer service and friendly staff.

Staff was very friendly, restaurant/bar was great, food was good. The room was pretty run down. TV remote didn't work, Keurig didn't work, furniture was very worn, and whirlpool spit out a bunch of crud when turned on so that was pretty much unusable as well.
