We stayed at the Best Western Bandana on the Friday of Labor Day weekend 2008 and had an absolutely wonderful stay.
The location is in a very nice area, and the proximity to the State Fair was great. The hotel even provided free shuttle service, so that were able to enjoy our day at the fair and the evening Prairie Home Companion show, and we didn't have to fight traffic and pay for parking. Nice!
Contrary to another reviewer, we loved the historic aspect of this building: concrete floors with train tracks running through the lobby, original wooden beams exposed throughout, it was refreshing to not spend another night in a "cookie-cutter" hotel! (Authentic steam loco out front!)
Our room was very large, top-notch and well-equipped (beautiful bathroom!) and the sliding-glass door allowed us to walk directly out from the room onto the pool area (w/ TWO jacuzzis!).
Continental breakfast was above average, as was the service. (The breakfast server was amazing!)
We're planning on driving up (1,000 miles each way) sometime to see Garrison Keillor again, and when we do we will definitely stay at the Best Western Bandana!
