We booked a night between our son's hockey games and were looking forward to enjoying time between games exploring Stillwater. After a long day running around we returned to the hotel to get a good night sleep before an early game. Except we were now on top of a bass thumping, screaming frat party. It was a rowdy wedding and...

I'm sorry about what happen, we do not book rooms that are not with the wedding in that part of the Inn, for some reason this was missed with your reservation. As my manager told you when he called you, we have refunded your card. I have talked with my front desk staff about this so it doesn't happen again....

We stayed in the Bridgeview room. The view was like a postcard of Stillwater. Awesome. The room itself was very nice. Fireplace, large tub in room, comfy bed, loved it. Our bartender Dan made an amazing authentic San Francisco recipe Irish coffee. We came into the bar late and he happily made up his brew of coffee, toasted sugar, and...

My husband and I spent the night here on a whim, just needing to get away from the 'burbs. I have always really admired this building and was thrilled to find they had vacancies at a super affordable price! We got THE most adorable room, high ceilings, modern amenities and a fireplace, just lovely. The service was exquisite, everyone was...

My wife and I decided to book 2 nights at the Water Street Inn for a weekend getaway. I booked the most expensive suite available online and called shortly after to confirm our reservation. Everything was going well until about 9PM on the first night (a Friday) and our entire room began to shake- literally. Little did we know that...

We had a family event here several months ago. The short version: once upon a time this was the only game in town in Stillwater. They are coasting on fumes. We found the event manager we were assigned (and I don't believe in calling bad service out by name, so I won't here) to be apathetic, unavailable and actually pretty...

My co-worker and I made the best of an all day meeting, by staying in Stillwater, at the Water Street Inn. The 2 room Parlor Suite with the murphy bed was a fun and new experience. The separate sleeping rooms were wonderful for sharing, and a perfect solution for us. The antique décor was charming (but I wouldn't recommend trying...

We stayed at Water Street Inn during our first visit to Stillwater and enjoyed the place. We typically look for independent and/or historic hotels, and fortunately Water Street Inn offers both. The hotel has quite a few quirks owing to its age, but is in overall good condition. Staff was very friendly, it's located within walking distance of everything in...

My wife and I chose Water Street Inn to stay at for our weekend getaway to explore the streets of Stillwater MN. We made the right choice! Hotel was an awesome throwback to an incredible era. In walking distance to everything. The 3 rooms were nice and cozy, with river view balcony, a fireplace and walk-in shower. The Irish pub...

I only stayed here for one night and I'm glad it was just one night. I've stayed before at hotels that are historic, with furniture and decor from different time periods. However, this hotel was creepy. Pros: -friendly staff -good location -good breakfast food Cons: -rooms are dark, or at least mine was (dark wallpaper) -there's a whirlpool tub in...

I don't know why this hotel isn't rated higher, we had a gorgeous room with a balcony overlooking the river, it was so nice and the room was decorated like something out of an old movie. We walked to the dinner cruise and there is a bar and restaurants downstairs. The location is absolutely perfect. I'd stay again any time...
