This was my first visit to Stillwater, although I am a native to Minnesota. We traveled for a wedding being held there. Our first challenge was trying to drive down mainstreet; not easy. We sat in so much traffic that we ended up just pulling off onto a side street, parking the car, and making a run for the wedding (we were cutting it short on time). Once we got to the Inn, we couldn't figure out how to get in! We could not find a door... we finally entered through the restaurant on the South side and tried to find a main lobby for directions to the wedding, but... no. We could not find a main lobby area or any directions. We did, however, run into several other wedding goers also at bay as to where to go? When another group said, "the bride and groom are still taking pictures...", we thought ourselves safe, but upon second thought I thought I would ask more and found that there were several weddings going on at the same time, and still could not find ours! After a few more minutes, someone from the hotel walked up to the group of six now amassing, also lost in finding the wedding of our choice, and they led us to the correct spot.
The "space" itself was quite nice, and was appropriate for the number of people (about 200). The food was "good enough" for catered wedding food (I had prime rib but it was quite over done). We had access to the outdoors; which was nice, during the early period of the reception (prior to moving in for dinner).
We never got to actually ever see the Inn lobby or any rooms, just much of the other areas.
Favorite: nice deck area
Least favorite: trying to find out where to go and how to get in; lack of service
