As a loyal customer, I made reservations for a special Thanksgiving dinner 2 weeks ahead of time. We had people in town and we wanted them to have the authentic Lowell Inn experience as they had not been there for several years. They were elderly and getting out was a big event. The food is alright but the real experience... More

We have stayed at Lowell Inn several times and have loved it. Chose to stay here for our Honeymoon this week. Love the decor, location, and history. Just a block or two from Main Street so we enjoyed walking around Stillwater.

Was in Stillwater for an event and we were booked at this hotel. Great location; just a couple blocks from everything we went to. Friendly staff, there's a restaurant at the hotel; very good breakfasts. The bed was very comfortable.

We stayed at the Lowell Inn since it was across the street from the venue for a family wedding. When we told people that we were staying there they all thought it was a very fancy place. Not so much. The staff was very nice and the hotel was clean but it does need some updating. We stayed in a... More

I think this hotel has seen better days. We stayed in Room #330 - on of the historic rooms. It was clean but the overall maintenance has much to be desired. There were two tones of paint in the bathroom (something had been removed from the wall and not painted over), replaced wall tiles that didn't match, very goopy repair... More

I enjoyed stepping back in time but it felt a little creepy. At $160 for 2 beds(during the week), I do expect more. There is no fridge, micro..or any extra amenities. Should be $99 a night. If like nostalgia stay here. Staff were all very courteous.

Room was not clean. Pins from previous guest on the night stand, a phone cord was left beside the bed, and waste paper very visible under the TV cabinet. All would have been noticed with simple vacuuming and wiping after the previous guest. When we saw these things my wife asked "I wonder if they remembered to change the sheets... More

I really liked this place, which was conveniently located and comfortable. Our room was in the newly renovated section, which is closer to the parking garage next door. Stillwater is a cute town and only one block from the inn. Breakfast is not included, which was unexpected for the price paid. The interior decorating is somewhat confusing with a mish... More
