I booked this hotel based on price and location. Come to find out, upon arrival, that the hotel is under construction and the water would be shut off from midnight until 4 am. They did not get the water turned back on until closer to 6 am, preventing me from taking a hot shower prior to my business meeting and...

Overall, the hotel was servicible. However, the room is small and the decor needs to be updated. Plus, there needs to be more options for setting up a work stating and for ability to plug in devices to use or charge.

My husband and I plus another couple were booked here to celebrate 2 birthdays in the group. We had dinner reservations and tickets to the Ordway Theatre. Made all of our arrangement only to be emailed 2 days ahead of the event to say the hotel was overbooked and our reservations were no longer valid. Will not recommend this hotel....

First off, the hotel was under construction and the bar/lounge/restaurant was not open. We waited for 50 minutes for the shuttle service and called 3 separate times. They never communicated with the driver we were waiting, then had shift change and still nobody told the driver. We really enjoyed Alex as our driver, but we are sad that he works...

We are extremely disappointed, we booked a reservation on 8-4 through trip advisor for the night of 8-9. On 8-7 (we get an email, not a phone call which if traveling not everyone has access to email) telling us the hotel was over booked and we no longer have a place to stay, they were willing to re-book us in...

You would think a hotel chain as large as Best Western would indicate on their website that a hotel is under massive renovations. There was no lobby, no restaurant, and barely a reception desk. Hotel rooms are dirty, outdated, smell old, have low ceilings, and bathrooms feel like you are in a small camper, and not a nice one. We...

John, the shuttle driver and Deanna, the front desk person, and both of the people manning the breakfast room were some of the kindest people I have ever encountered in a hotel/motel. When I called to see if I could store my luggage there (our train arrived way earlier than check in time), they immediately sent the shuttle. When John...

Always a great stay, great staff, and getting better with the hotel improvements. A beautiful walk from the hotel to downtown St Paul. Not to far away from MOA. Shuttle service to Shriner's hospital and around St Paul. We always stay here.

Nice place to stay. It was pet friendly and the staff was nice overall. It is undergoing renovation but they kept the noise away. Clean rooms, good food. No complaints. It is in a good location. I would ask for an upper floor.

Thank Sarah C
