I made a reservation for my elderly mother to spend a night in Stillwater for a friends birthday party. The party was June 5, 2016 but Somehow going through Booking.com the site defaulted to that date of the search, May 5th 2016, verses the date of the party a month out. I didn't realize the error and the booking was...

Very expensive with little value. We're told we had 2 beds but had 1 + pull out. 2 coffees , 2 towels, for 3 people. Staff very unfriendly as well. It's too bad. It's a great location. The kids said the room reminded them of the Shinning. Redrum 😳

The bad: This place needs some good updating in lobby and some items in rooms. The beds were terrible. The pillows hard and seemed to be a cheap fill. Everytime you moved, the bed creaked VERY loudly. This was our 3rd time staying here. The windows were either; broken frames (214), didn't have screens (319), some didn't stay up (Both),...

We took a road tour of the river valley area of Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa. We selected Water Street Inn because of its location and history. We found it well worth the price. The Inn is right on the river front and close to everything in Stillwater. Short walk to a winery, brewery and a lot of restaurants. As it...

Historic hotel in a great location, If the weather is nice make sure you take advantage of the patio bar that overlooks the river. If you are looking for a modern feel keep looking, if you want to stay in hotel that does not have cookie cutter feel, and takes you back in time this is your place (when was...

My boyfriend and I had a boat rented on the St. Croix River for the afternoon and decided as we were getting ready to leave to make a full date day / night out of it and book a room in Stillwater. The Water Street Inn was the only place with a room available, we hadn't done any research on...

After enjoying a long stroll on the paths next to the river, we were parched and ready for snacks... This was perfect! Nothing fancy, but very accommodating! I have a 20 month old toddler who only eats bread and fruit right now (and milk) and the staff was so accommodating! I almost always stop here for at least a drink...

The staff was pleasant. Clean. Cheap décor. You could tell they didn't put any money to restore to orginal décor. It was all imitation. The bedside marble table top fell off in the room. My husband liked the squeeky hard bed with springs, I didn't. (personal preferance). I had to look over my husband in bed to watch a box...

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.

Thank you for the review. Glad you enjoy our Inn and the St. Croix River Valley. Come see us again soon.

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.
