I was pretty disappointed in my experience here. I expected an older, quaint hotel, but that isn't exactly what this is. Our room had a "bathroom" which was separated from the bedroom by a curtain and not a wall or a door. This is just a strange configuration. All night long, the hotel had a radio ad on repeat, playing... More

The Lowell Inn serves great food that actually tastes good. On a shopping trip to Stillwater, we stopped for lunch, their special being a chicken salad on rye. The room was full but we only waited about 10 minutes. The Lowell had such atmosphere, great service and a great menu. I have to say, I was surprised that the chicken... More

Stayed at the Lowell Inn for our anniversary. Really impressed with the historic atmosphere. Room was very clean and enjoyable. Had the Honeymoon Suite for under $200! Exceptional value. Ate in the Matterhorn room which has a fondue dinner. Absolutely Wonderful! We WILL return.

Fun mini-adventure from Minneapolis. Hotel feels very European...antiques and style. One block into the town center. Beautifully maintained. We opted for room in the old wing, and loved the room. Made us smile and think of Europe...beautiful but understand that it is very true to period. Fun and nice welcoming. The town is very festive for the holidays but with... More

We came here for a dinner that was being offered by a financial company. We were given three entree choices and I chose the filet mignon well done. Surprisingly, they got it right! At first I was concerned because it looked a little charred on the outside but it was quite tender. It was served with mashed potatoes and asparagus.... More

Beautifully restored American colonial style hotel. We stayed for my son's wedding. Look forward to returning sometime. Only criticisms no hanging closet for clothes, the bathroom was separated from the sleeping area with a curtain only. Would be better if they could fix some sort of doors for privacy.

Booked this place on a whim when traveling back to Wisconsin recently and were we impressed. Stayed in room 306 in the new area of the hotel. Small but perfect for a couple. Very clean and a nice view street side looking out onto some of the other old buildings of Stillwater. The Victorian style has been kept intact from... More

Beautiful setting and in a great small town. The hotel sits at the top of a small hill in the middle of town and has been a destination for many years. We really went for the special dinner in the Matterhorn room. Five course Fondue dinner which was delicious and very romantic. We had the huge carved and ornate room... More

We spent one night with 3 other couples at the Inn. We stayed in room 201 in the newer part of the hotel. Room was ok and clean, but smelled stale and the king bed was too soft. The towels were thin and worn. Two of the couples stayed in the historic section. While I can understand eclectic, the decor... More

My rating of this hotel is actually a 3.5 but since that's not an option we'll round up. It is pretty much exactly as I expected based on the other reviews that I had read. I traded charm for quality and stayed in one of the renovated rooms based on recommendation. One nice thing about the website is each room... More
