Room was nice, fun décor (Trains) and good location to Minnesota State Faigrounds and St. Paul's Como Park. The fan in the room was a bit loud, by perfect "white noise" for sleeping. Lots of parking (free).

At first my wife is like "where are we?" I was skeptical also. Quiet industrial park looking area, but quiet. We walked in and super impressed with the old school wood work and unusualness of this Best Western. Definitely not your typical motel/hotel. Staff was awesome and friendly. Rooms were great and again not your usual room. We had a...

Welcoming staff, seamless check in and check out. Clean, comfortable, and quiet room. We had a pet friendly room, and there was no smelly evidence of any previous canine or feline occupants. Really good happy hour and good selection of adult beverages and bar food. Minor gripe. Smoking should not be allowed so close to the main entrance. We will...

My husband I stayed here while attending a hockey tournament. He had stayed in this hotel in the past and thought it would be a good option for us. Our room was fairly clean, but there was some random trash left behind. The toilet was a pain to flush, the shower didn't drain, and you have little to no control...

This is the best hotel to stay out if you're checking out Hamline University. They offer a shuttle to and from the campus. It's also a beautifully designed hotel that takes into account the original structure of the original design.

This hotel has been managed under a lot of different names and we have stayed here a lot due to the location for our annual family gatherings. This year was probably the worst. Upon checking in, we were informed that they had remodeled the hotel and the rooms that had pull out bed no longer had them, just a king...

My husband and I were pleased with the staff at this hotel and with the multi-night discount. We weren't interested in the other amenities, sauna, pool, hot-tub, etc however the breakfast was great and the clever use of the "depot" theme was clever! Room too warm even though we set thermostat to lowest. Will look forward to using this hotel...

Everybody at the hotel who was working during our stay was outstanding. From the person who was taking care of the breakfast area, to our reservation person, to the housekeeping person. All were outstanding. I would have no problem staying here again. Only concern is if anything is that parking was a little limited. Very accommodating staff. Good location to...

This was a great hotel in a quiet location but close to everything you need. Very clean and comfortable beds. I would definitely stay at this hotel again. Didn't get a chance to use the pool or hot tub but it looked very nice.
