“Enjoyable Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2011

We enjoyed our time at the Nicollet Island Inn. The building is charming and the location nice. We particularly enjoyed the excellent service and breakfasts at the Inn. Our room was also nice. We did have difficulty with Internet connectivity.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2011

I really wanted to love this inn. The location and the outside appearance are full of promise, but once you get inside the rooms, the charm fades rapidly. The chairs and accent pillows were stained. The end tables were chipped and wobbly. And the windows were so filthy we couldn't even enjoy our river view. The guests in the room next door had an infant, which we could hear crying. Worse than that, though, was the plastic bag full of dirty diapers that they placed in a plastic bag outside their door--and which remained there until maid service the next day. Ick. The restaurant is ridiculously expensive for the quality when you compare it to other nearby restaurants and the service is disappointing. Sadly, I feel that the time for Nicollet Island Inn has passed--unless new owners give this much-deserved location a strong shot in the arm.

My wife and I stayed there for her sister's wedding last summer. The rooms were Victorian inspired which were neat and cozy in a way. The sleep is good as both sides of the bed had adjustable firmness controls. We had a great view of the river too.

The surprise came when we found out that the fireworks for the Aquatennial was being held right beside the inn later that night.

I had stayed here several years ago. It is still a great location, and its surprisingly affordable (more the hotel than the restaurant). It is hard to imagine a better spot -- right on the river, across from downtown; an easy walk to the Guthrie Theatre. The rooms are a bit dated, but well kept up. Very comfortable.

We spent one short night here as we flew out very early the next morning. The staff made coffee for us at 3:30 AM and had airport transportation there for us at 4:30 AM. The inn is made of river rock ,attractive and very peaceful. We never heard anyone or anything the whole time we were in our room. The decor and service definitely gives the inn "old world charm".
