I loved the Historic brick building with its high tin ceilings, antique furniture, and Victorian décor. We had a private balcony with excellent views of the St Croix River and Main Street. The breakfast was delicious and there were many choices available.

Our room had a fantastic view of the St. Croix River and the famous lift bridge. A block away from most of the shops. Free breakfast each morning. The price was a little high. The decor is supposed to be old, but several things are in need of restoration. Friendly staff. Overall, a very good stay.

this is a lovely hotel. The rooms are decorated in a "victorian" style. The room was very clean, amenities nice. The tv was from the "turn of the century" (small, not HD). the pub/cafe served excellent food. the hotel looked like it would be a great venue for a wedding or reception. the complimentary breakfast was huge and delicious.

Had lunch on the patio/deck. Next time we will try the covered patio. Food was good. We had a Rueben sandwich and a Pesto Chicken sandwich. Both were good. I'd get the Pesto Chicken again. Also had a couple of summer drinks from the bar and both were good, pricey, but tasty. Disappointed that they were in little plastic cups,... More

My grandmother and her sister stayed at Waterstreet Inn for 2 nights (7/24-7/26) based on my recommendation. The price of Waterstreet Inn is 3-4 times higher than other Stillwater hotels due to the location. I called the manager and they were willing to give her a discount which was a little more expensive than the lower price quoted on this... More

Stayed at Water Street Inn for a meeting. Was in a great location as its on the ricer and very walkable to many places. Hotel is very old and decor dated. I can see some people liking that. No big deal I guess. I found it odd having a bathroom and then a separate hot tub inside my room. Room... More

Thanks for the review. We do have different room layout in the building some with the whirlpool in the bathroom and some with it in the room. Sorry about the mattress, we are updating some of them right now, it is hard to know what some people like in a mattress there are so may different kinds out there. Glad... More

The halls and the room smelled horrible. The room was so outdated. Whirlpool looked yellow. No fridge in room or any ice machines. Bed was uncomfortable. Definitely not worth the $200!! Pros: Patio gives you good view of river. The hotel is close to the restaurants and downtown businesses.

Wonderful experience! My husband and I were on a weekend getaway. It was lovely. We really enjoyed the balcony overlooking the river(definitely worth the extra few bucks!) Breakfast was good and more than expected. This is more hotel like than other b&b's We would most certainly do this again!

Beautiful old hotel. Rooms are very large and nice. The breakfast was one of the best I've ever had although I waited over 30 minutes to get it. We found it difficult to find the entrance and they definitely need more/better signage inside. Strange and complicated layout.
