My wife and I stayed overnight this past weekend as part of a internet group deal. The room we stayed in facing Water Street could use a little updating. The bed was lumpy, the TV was small, and the pillows were very uncomfortable. I ended up using a blanket as my pillow. I must say that most of the staff...

My wife and I stayed one evening on Sat.4/20/13, Room 319. We had a fantastic time!. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Regarding the room decor, we knew what we were getting into. Lots of space, high ceilings, comfy bed. The room was clean, but maybe in some need of upkeep. The little Irish bar downstairs was a lot...

This is a good location- right by the shops and restaurants in Stillwater so you can walk to everything. It is an old remodeled building, so you need to expect some strange things, but... we couldn't figure out what the train-like noise was. Then we realized that after the toilet flushed, about 30 seconds later, there was this loud noise,...

Thank you for the review. We are the only Inn on the River in downtown Stillwater. I is always nice that you can park your car in our lot and not need it again until it's time to go home.

Sparsly furnished with cheep, tatty, Indonesian furniture, unbearably lumpy mattress and ratty foam pillows, our room's peeling wallpaper, dusty light fixtures and faded poster-art was far from the 'Romantic bedrooms and suites have been given extra attention to decor" the hotel boasts on their own website. The bathroom was nothing but cold, grubby tiles, drafty window and more peeling wallpaper....

Best thing about the hotel is location in historic downtown. The rooms are spacious and clean. We had stayed before. My husband bought a Travel Zoo package for my Christmas present, and it included 2 drinks in the bar, dinner for 2, and breakfast for 2. Only problem with the room is the bed was hard and pillows lumpy and...

My husband and I have stayed here 3 times.

We took advantage of a special rate deal and stayed at the Water Street Inn last weekend, 2/8-2/9. Our room was a huge river view 2 room suite overlooking the historic lift bridge over the St. Croix River. The room was very private, clean and quiet. It included a fire place and a spa tub.

What a great place! Cheerful, attentive staff, great restaurant, and our room overlooking the St. Croix River was to die for in its elegance and comfort. The gas fire and huge Jacuzzi-filled tub were romantic additions. Very quiet. The bed was incredibly comfortable. We felt very attended to and pampered. Will definitely return.
