Prudence Lahti

Nice, but lacked the details that make a place special We stayed in a street view room during the week, so the price was reasonable Hotel staff were friendly

No lamps next to the bed, so you have to climb out of bed to flip a wall switch Bathroom had a pedestal sink that was pretty and went along with the theme of the room, but there was no space for toiletries when getting ready on the morning Furniture was ornate with lots of grooves that needed dusting, though the room seemed overall clean The location is convenient if you want to be downtown Stillwater, but we would not likely stay here again

Chrissy Gamst

Location and rooftop bar were great, staff were friendly, and the new portion was clean Lots of character in the historic side which was cool Room was large, but needed some work (peeling wallpaper, ect

) and the TV was super tiny I would not stay again for the price charged I would also suggest offering a government and AAA discount

Katie McGuire

The room was nice, very historic with a fire place and bathtub Temperature was hard to cool down but otherwise good Location was great, right on the river and lots of stuff near by

Wasn’t thrilled with Charlie’s restaurant, didn’t have the greatest service and it was very over priced for what it was If we go back we will find another restaurant near by, many places to choose from

WARNING- Food safety procedures at the breakfast bar are not safeOverall the hotel was fine Rooms were clean

Ate breakfast from the hot table on the breakfast bar and within 2 hours I was HORRIBLY sick Manager insisted that nobody else had complained Talked to someone else who had stayed at the hotel and eaten the same thing but left town that day and they had also gotten sick when they got home Of course the manager isn’t going to tell you that others complained when someone gets sick on their watchThe price is fine and for the most part the hotel is clean I wouldn’t roll the dice with the hot breakfast anymore

Rachel Bounds

We stay here often They are reasonably priced Rooms are always clean and comfortable

Staff is friendly I just got stranded on a flight in another state They refunded my money 100% two days after I was suppose to have stayed with them, even though I had not canceled in advance This Quality Inn and Suites will continue to get my business!

Hotel room is huge! Nice warm pool and huge hot tub! Adults only in pool from 10pm-12am! I’ve never heard of a pool being open so late! There is a secret passage way to a bar/restaurant off the second floor There are arcade games, pool, darts, ax throwing (to come), and a bowling alley! Couldn’t ask for much more to keep the teens entertained

chelsey carroll

We stayed there last Saturday for my daughters birthday When we arrived we were told the water slide was out of order ( one of the reasons we decided to stay there) Then we tried to go bowling and there was bowling tournaments going on all day

So we decided to go to the arcade and eat dinner No food available and only a few games worked I booked this stay in advance and was never sent an email or anything stating these issues It was really fun having to disappoint a group of kids that were looking forward to the things that the hotel was said to offer Please update your website to show accurate accommodations

Krystal Tranby

We really enjoyed our stay while here for Back to the Fifties The reason I give 2 stars for service has nothing to do with the staff All staff was friendly but they no longer clean the rooms which is apparently because of COVID but this means you have to go to the front desk for garbage bags, clean towels etc

Also the waterslide was out of order while we were there but they do have that stated clearly on the website The attached restaurant had good food but was dealing with staffing issues Several members of our party enjoyed the bowling alley one evening It was reasonably priced and they could bowl all they wanted until 10:00PM We will try them again for Btt50s next year and I will update my review at that time!

Really enjoying my stay Got here a little early so I took a look around Nice hotel, the staff is friendly and genuine

Really like the location and the fountain as you drive in is beautiful The fitness center is well maintained and has a lot to offer A pool and hot tub is right next doorThe rooms are well maintained and very clean Thanks for a great stay!

Neasha Tanner

Clearly have a back up plan before staying here I booked a suite because we have two set of twins to only find out that they completely changed my reservation with no explanation phone call or anything Manger didn’t seem to care much and no one tried to fix the situation

I book my reservation well in advance It was booked September 2021 I hope I never have to book here again I didn’t even want to give it a star Please have a back up plan!

Audrey Geissinger

I think if no one has ever stayed here when it was the Sheraton then one would think this was a nice hotel Ever since it switched to Marriott this place has disappointed This time no cold water for a shower, no room service even though they advertise as such, room wasn’t ready at 3pm and my door was damaged and had to be repaired as it wouldn’t shut

The staff really tried and were pleasant The only reason I stayed here again was because of business I had in town I will absolutely not stay here again

Mike Underhill

The lobby is nice, everything is clean Bed was comfy Maintenance was good

Hot breakfast and pool good I gave it three stars because the bathroom was so small you can’t even close the door while you’re sitting on the toilet The depth of the bathroom is the width of the tub Should be just a shower if that’s all the space they had Also explains why their website shows no bathroom pics None If you don’t mind that, you will like the room

Noah Lemke

Hotel is nice and pool is nice and breakfast is awesome here, This hotel only got 2 stars because of the pool and breakfast! But stayed here back in Jan for the ice castles and the front desk group are unbearable and rude, simply asking about a room rate that was promised to my girlfriend was too much Than her family stays here because they had a fire at there house and just because they asked for towels and the room to be cleaned they get kicked out! I understand the whole Covid thing but seriously that has been over for a while now and it doesn’t give you the right to be rude and threaten to call the cops! I won’t stay here again nor will anyone I know plus my girlfriends family will probably tell everyone not to stay here til a change is made at the desk When will hotels go back to being corporate ran? Cause that’s the only way it needs to be this independent owners don’t care about the people staying at there hotels nor do they care about the service there team is providing!

Shannon McCloskey

We happily got married and when we got to the hotel it wasn’t until 10ish pm at night on our Wedding day When we walked in there were pop can stains on the counters, sticky stains, trash from other people before us underthe couch, and worse of all there was a nasty stain on the top blanket Other than the lack of cleanliness the friendliness of country inn is wonderful and warming

We were so tired and kept going in and out of the room between our house, celebrating, and then back to the hotel so we weren’t in the room all too long I would’ve said something the first night or the next morning when we first came but I was just so worn out from the wedding I didn’t wish to complain Otherwise it was a decent room I just wish it wasn’t so dirty because out of all moments I wish it didn’t happen to us on our special night

My wife and I stayed here and had the king suite in room 228 on 8/12/22-8/14/22 We checked on that Friday 8/12 and went out on the town Upon our return, we got ready for bed, only to notice crunched up chips all over our sheets in our bed

I went down to the front desk and was given a whole set of new sheets my wife and I put on ourselves Omar, the gentleman working took note of our issue and stated we had to call back on Monday and speak with the managerI called back and spoke with Rose, the manager, and she said all she could offer was a $30 discount I explained I did not think that was reasonable that I paid $500 for a 2 night stay in which I had to change my own sheets, on top of having the icky feeling our room wasn’t even cleaned She was very rude, after asking who else I could speak with She said it was just her and hung up the phone DO NOT STAY HERE!!!

KJ Goldstein

The king jacuzzi suit exceeded my expectations My only complaint was that the room was about 58° when we got there Good thing there was a fireplace! And the direct TV was somehow not connected

We had to jiggle and fiddle with everything, but got it workingHighly recommend staying here for a quick getaway


Specifically,wanted to use thehot tub** asked them prior to, and during

that it was in”Proper working order”I went down the first time and I told her it was “cold” and she checked ,and she said it was 93° and by the time I left it was up to 96°degrees”Not acceptable”The room was okay,but the shower/tub drain didn’t work

Bea Urself

Overall a decent stay The Jacuzzi suite really is what it looks like in the pictures, saddest part being that it’s is right there when you walk in the door so if your partner goes out/comes in while you are enjoying it, you risk being seen by anyone in the hallway Late check out was an option -11am was extended to 1pm for a reasonable $26

85 The location however seemed weird and there is no view from that particular room

Angela Malik Luck

Hotel is very dated The breakfast is hit or miss – day one was meat, potatoes and eggs Day two was potatoes and eggs

Day three was potatoes, french toast, and eggs Day four was cold breakfast for $9 Day five was a full spread I watched someone try to check in at 6PM and get told their room was not ready yet because housekeeping was short staffed Check in is at 3! It was comfortable enough but I will definitely try a different hotel when in the area again

Mike Beschen

I stayed here almost a month So got a really good feel for how things a run at this location I’ve stayed at several Hilton properties

This one may be the absolute worst one I asked several times for my sheets to be changed, that only happen once during my 26 day stay They never once vacuumed the carpeting in my room Also you can forget about the bar and restaurant It’s almost never open The staff is very friendly but they are working under a manager that is inept I’ll be staying at the Marriott next week

Brant Backes

The hotel was nice Beds are hard but that appears to be the norm for all hotels so I was surprised We got the king size bed suite with the whirlpool

The room was enormous! I mean you could easily place 6 kind size beds in the room with plenty of space to move around The room came with what appeared to be a pullout couch, desk/small table, mini fridge, microwave and a couple of sinks The only downside was the position of the whirlpool It made it hard to get in and out of it Otherwise we will certainly get a room like this in the future

Kymn Davis

Grabbed a room for 1 night Exterior looked great, lobby was clean and impressive Hallways where a bit dated and gave a “Shining” feeling

Room was smelly, like the stink of a previous smoking room turned non-smoking room recently Bed was hard as a rock, pillows are the kind of down where your head instantly sinks to the bottom Room view included that of a wasps nest Would NOT be staying here again Not worth the $150+ price tag Room is more styled of a $60-70 hotel

Zebulen Dickey

The overall experience at this location was okay The sofa couch in the room was very dirty It had multiple stains and was very dusty

The breakfast was less than desirable The eggs were runny and had lot of was in the bottom of the pan and the sausage patties were dry Being there are so many other Hilton family hotels in the area, I will not be returning to this location

WE HAD A MOUSE in our room! shortly after we arrived as we were getting ready a mouse ran across the room and then ended up going into a hole under the A/C We called the front desk and they sent a gal up with a decorative basket (two giant holes on the side) to catch it They would not upgrade us and almost didn’t give us a new room (They said they didn’t have any clean rooms)

We were late to getting to our event because we had to figure out a solution with the front desk The gentleman that was at the front desk when we finally left for our event had stated that he would move our belongings to a different room once it was clean, did not We arrived back to our hotel about 330am to find out that our things had not been moved and that we didn’t even have a room ready for us to switch too The only saving grace for our stay was that the two gentleman that were at the desk when we came back at 330am were not only apologetic but kind, understanding of our frustrations, fun/funny, and very helpful!


The first issue was that our toilet overflowed with some kind of soap around 7pm Okay, not a huge deal since we called the front desk and they sent someone to clean it up He was very pleasant

The second and more serious issue was that all night there were people running through the halls screaming 12am, 3am, 5am I imagine they finally went to sleep around 7am when we had to check out We got a babysitter overnight to celebrate my significant other’s graduation from nursing school and got zero sleep I told the front desk about the problem in the morning and they responded with an anecdote about how they once worked in a hotel in Virginia where there was a lingerie party and those individuals were loud? I wish I were kidding, but I am not Extremely uncomfortable interaction and did not help resolve my issue at allI will not be back nor would I recommend this hotel

I spent about a month in the hotel on business The staff and housekeeping services are pretty solid I was able to get my room reliably cleaned every week and get a paper from downstairs on the local news

Coffee is available 24 hours, its pretty decent The room had awesome heating, plenty of space and a comfortable bed The gym has a few treadmills, a bike and elliptical and a dumbbell set, yoga mats – all you need to get a good work out inThe hotel does an evening social once a week where they’ve got free beer and snacks which is cool and encouraging I haven’t come across many places that do this but its a great way to network and interact with people especially in times of COVIDThe biggest complaints would be the inconsistently of the room keys, if you can get the app – use it because you’ll find yourself losing the ability to go into the gym, laundry room, pool or even your own room at the drop of a dime The breakfast is edible as long as you stay away from the powdered eggs

Tom Johns

Solid choice for north suburban stays They do one weird thing though , I’ve observed it during every stay in 2022, which is that between 0715 and 1000 each day but especially on weekends, they’ll entirely clean the lobby bathrooms, tiles in front of bathrooms, and even tile floors of first floor exit areas with really slick floor detergent But this is exactly the time of highest foot traffic in all these areas

I’ve witnessed grandmas nearly spill their breakfast coffee trying to maneuver into and out of those bathrooms because it’s like ice I thought it was because staff to do this only worked mornings, but that turns out not to be the case, the same individual creating local slip & slides is still working at 1530 Clean up of these areas should really occur only after 10:30 or so, it isn’t safe unless you’re barefoot and even then I doubt it

Jerry Inderlee

My girlfriend and I spent almost 6 months here and really miss the wonderful staff, the beautiful room, and the way they made us feel right at homeThe front desk, maintenance, kitchen, and environmental services were 10 out of 10!My girlfriend wants to move back lol!Thank you for everything you did for us!

Really nice hotel, our stay was great! Lots of bright colors, the hallways were yellow

it was fun & cheery The breakfast was very good, lots of choices and 12pm check-out is the best! The pool is pretty tiny but we had our two young children with us and no one was ever in it, so it was perfect for us We spent everyday of our trip in it and the hot tub Everything was clean and the front desk people were very helpful Had a nice stay, thank you!


I’ve had great staff experience in the last 3 years I been coming to this hotel Didn’t have that experience this time, looks like a newer staff Was very short, not professional kind of like I was a friend to her, casual carefree attitude

Was checking me in but conversing with guests waiting behind me but not me Not up to the Marriott standard

Rue Wei

I didn’t sleep well because I can hear people talking and music playing through the wall I didn’t get to enjoy the breakfast because the breakfast time starts too late I hope the breakfast time starts earlier like 5am or at least have other options out for guests

I checked out the hotel and waited in the lobby for about ten minutes waiting for my ride When I got on the car, the manager came out stared at me intensely When we rolled down the window he told me that he thought I just walked passed him without checking out Super creepy

It’s in a nice area and only an 8 minute drive from a family members house We have stayed twice for medical appointments for our kids The pool is super cold

The rooms are definitely in need of some TLC They are currently remodeling so I’m sure it will get better The first time we stayed the room was very clean but the second time the room was visibly not cleaned in a few spots and the duvet cover and was stained The breakfast was decent both times We stayed with all 4 of our young children and it’s nice to have options for breakfast that each of them likeWe would consider staying again after the remodel but will be finding another hotel in the meantime

Currently under renovation, but you wouldn’t know before 7:30 any morningStaff was super helpfulProperty inside & out both are very well keptRoom is great, plenty of space, including a desk, seating area, coat hooks as well

The shower & bath are goodRoom has plenty of charging locations, and plenty of lightingThe blackout shade does the job perfectlyI’ve worked in the area many times, but this is my 1st stay wish I’d known before now about this gem!

To the ones who rely so heavily on reviews before making a decision: As an avid user of Holiday Inn I was somewhat skeptical when reading the reviews of this hotel on google but decided to bet on this location knowing it was a corporate owned location While I have allotted for grace of the construction being completed in this review I feel like there are several areas as room for improvement to take this from a 25-3 star hotel and bring it to the high 4 if not 5

The first this was the cleanliness in ALL common areas of hotel the hallways, breakfast areas were never cleaned during our 4 day stay This is something so easily fixed yet no one took the time to do it At one point there was dried blood on the floor in the breakfast area which again to my horror was not cleaned during our stay The next area is the elevator- the way the elevator functioned was unacceptable with catching- it was almost scarier to take the elevator vs the stairs The cleanliness of elevator was nothing short of terrible sticky mess, handprints, visible dirt debris all days of the stay Again I know there was construction but there’s no reason that staff can not clean and mop the elevator at MINIMUM once a day The next was the noise level With the guests that were there during out stay the noise level and “rowdiness” gauge was off the charts It seemed like the staff either made no attempt to stop it or just didn’t care to Either way nighttime was dreaded especially since I was traveling with 2 little kids The other final area of improvement I would suggest is keeping a much closer eye of the freshness of the food During our stay on 7/7 we got some milk with a 7/8 expiration date Upon opening it we quickly realized it was sour and threw it away Yet on 7/8 when we came back downstairs much to my surprise all the milk with the 7/8 expiration date on it was still out When bringing it to staff attention staff notified me that they technically have 5 days AFTER the expiration date to keep it out for consumption YIKES Never have I heard of that and if that truly is the policy it is only opening the door for a food poisoning lawsuit at fault of the hotelWhen it comes to the question of would I stay here again the answer would have to be probably not There’s other options right across the street that I’d be willing to explore before coming backPros:LocationCons:Room Cleanliness, Facilities, Atmosphere

We were very pleased with our stay here All staff were very friendly The room was clean and the free breakfast was fantastic

The little walk in pool and water slide were perfect for our 1 year old Our housekeeper came in between our night stays and gave fresh towels and went as far to pick up our daughters baby doll toy off the floor so she could vacuum and wrapped it in its swaddle and placed its bottle next to it on the bed It was just a very sweet gesture that we appreciated We will recommend this hotel to everyone we know coming this way

Outstanding service, room, bed, and breakfast Showerhead needed cleaning, but the rest was amazing The room was so open and clean

It had all the amenities I neededThe service desk handled all the weird changes my company threw at her While she was working with me, she recognized the next customer in line and told them she would be “right with them” Another employee heard that and promptly came out of the office to help Wonderful service

The hotel was nice for the price in a good location Had no issues at the beginning First maid service came through, didn’t really do the greatest job cleaning the room and didn’t take out the garbage

But whatever, COVID procedures probably we didn’t care that much But the next day the assistant manager Jordan went out of her way to tell my wife that they QUOTE “need to have a discussion” about the amount of trash in our room I was like are you kidding me? You guys didn’t take it out and we have 3 adults and two small children who are in diapers, and we’re doing our best My wife waited patiently in the lobby while the maid cleaned the room only to have that embarrassing comment made by somebody with some authority while she struggled to keep our children entertained Very demeaning I have quite a lot of nights under my belt with Wyndham hotels and haven’t run into something that ridiculous yet Now I have to say that I called and freaked out because I was so angry, she did apologize but also tried to make my complaint seem less important because we were staying on a “discounted rate” The toilet in the room had brown swirls underneath the lip you could see when sitting in the tub, kind of gross No compensation was given for our complaint which we weren’t expecting but I think would’ve been warranted I don’t think we will stay here again

Although the hotel was recently remodeled and looked nice there seemed to be some deeper issues The elevators were slow and noisy and didn’t seem to run wellWe had dozens of ants in our room

The ants were in our bathroom as well as on the dresser in the main room The room also did not include a hair dry and a burnt out light bulb in the the bed side table (We did not complain until checkout as we arrived late and were gone all day We noticed the ants when we got back but we leaving early the next morning)When we mentioned the ants and light bulb to the front desk staff at check out they didn’t take note of our room number It was clear they either knew about the ant problem in the hotel or didn’t care they have an ant problem We did not ask for or expect any compensation and were only interested in seeing they cared about the issues This is not a cheap hotel and I expected much better at this price point

I am a Hilton Honors member and made a reservation at this location for one night being in town for work I had stayed here multiple times before because of its location and I liked the rooms I was asked to show the card I planned on using to pay for the room(the same card I used to make the reservation) and was told that they could not accept it

I explained to the gentleman at the front counter that it was a business card that I use while traveling and have used it at this location before as recently as the week before He said that was irrelevant and he couldn’t do anything to help I was quite furious when I left Especially because it was 1030 at night and I was exhausted I got to my vehicle, cancelled my reservation and made another one at the Hampton Inn 5 minutes down the road and didn’t have any issues paying with the same card that was turned down earlierI don’t ever plan on recommending this location to anyone nor do I plan on staying here againThank you

Rooms and public spaces were clean, which is rare these days Housekeepers said hi when they saw us in the hallways, which is niceFront desk staff wasn’t very friendly and they forgot to fulfill our request a few times

Elevator was very slow the last day When we asked about it, the front desk was obviously irritated that they had to answer about the slow elevatorPool is indoors but well maintained and clean with towels at the ready

I am not sure what all the other bad ratings are about, We loved our stay! We checked into this hotel without a reservation, because another hotel in the area that we had checked into earlier in the day was absolutely horrendous and we just couldn’t stay there From the first moment of stepping into the lobby, it looks great It’s a new hotel, and you can tell

The checkin was easy, our room was clean and comfortable! The bathroom was clean and had a beautiful sink and shower, and it had great lighting to put makeup on The carpet in the room was clean Carpet in hotels are always so gross to me, but this was the first hotel I felt like I could walk around the room barefootThe coffee and continental breakfast in the morning was a perfect end to our stayI would recommend this hotel!

This is a newer property and it wasn’t bad I think my biggest disappointment was the quality of the workmanship in the room The shower handle wasn’t properly mounted in the bathroom, the trim work and wallpaper work was a bit shoddy

I used one of my suite night upgrades and the room that I got really wasn’t much of an upgrade There was a small chair in the corner There was no sofa or coffee table and really wasn’t any place to just sit and relax in the room The hotel staff said that there was a hot buffet for breakfast in the morning which is rather misleading It was nothing more than microwave breakfast sandwiches and eggs

Are you a person who loves good Tik Tok lighting? This is the stop for you I couldn’t get over the lighting in the bathroom! Mind you, I’m an older millennial… I don’t Tik Tok, But I know a good number of your potential future guess probably do We were pleasantly surprised at how nice the room was, the shower was tiled very nicely with a nice chevron pattern

NETFLIX?!!! Obviously you need your own account, but the access was perfect for a rowdy toddler The breakfast the next morning was amazing… you could tell that they actually put some effort into their scrambled eggs I didn’t need to use salt or pepper They also had packaged breakfast sandwiches already made… Also the waffle maker… Probably my favorite hotel breakfast that I have come across I mean, I’ve never stayed at the Waldorf Astoria or anything like that… But I sure felt like it at this place Definitely our go to place, Since we moved up by Canada, and come down to the cities here and there The only thing was annoying was that this actual hotel doesn’t show up on the main website… So I had to booked through Expedia Great spot!

Stayed at this hotel with my entire extended family for a funeral Staff was extremely friendly and courteous and the General Manager Lynne was a great help in helping make arrangements for dinner at the adjoining Machine Shed (which was delicious)The hotel is very clean, and the lobby is beautiful

Very comfortable beds and large bathrooms is a plus The pool area is incredibly spacious and the kids loved itWill definitely be staying here again

Lydia Keskitalo

Clean rooms and great staff, but the floor plan is very odd Many of the rooms look into the pool which itself isn’t bad, but the windows are very thin and the pool doesn’t close until 11:00pm This can be a problem if you are here for business or if you like to get to bed early

However, good prices, clean rooms, and helpful staff makes this hotel a good place to stay in St Paul

Lisa M

Black hole of a room Overall, the hotel was fairly nice, typical Holiday Inn…HOWEVER, our room had absolutely no natural light coming in

We had a window, but it faced a wall Pitch black at all hours Hard to relax, when you have no idea what it’s like outside, or cues that it’s getting late, etc We (spouse and kids) slept terribly as we all kept waking up at various times afraid we’d oversleep (yes, we used an alarm clock), since we had no other cues it was morning Pic was taken before checkout at 9:30 am, just to show how ridiculous it wasWas never informed our room was like that when making booking, or calling in to confirm that day Unable to get new room as hotel was booked No refund as prepaid for best price We’re done with the IHG brand after this
