The Water Street Inn has a good reputation and I had always wanted to stay here. My husband does not especially like the personal nature of bed and breakfasts, but I like the charm. I thought this would be a good compromise. The location, view, and size of the rooms is excellent, but the upkeep leaves something to be desired....

So, nothing earth shattering here. There are not a lot of options right in Stillwater to choose from (we don't do B&Bs). Instead of waxing on like others, I will point out a few specifics that I didn't see in the other reviews and possibly some repeated notes. Had room 310 facing the river - the balcony is small but...

I would never stay here again nor host an event here. The rooms weren't historic, they were archaic. The owners should try staying in the rooms to conduct a usability study. Mattress? Ancient and lumpy. Pillows? Awful. Bathroom? totally inconvenient. We hosted a brunch following a wedding and the servers were inept, inattentive and poorly trained. We had to continually...

Entirely different room from what was shown to be 314 Bridgewater Suite on the Internet. Ugly depressing room, two narrow windows with a view of garbage on tables below. Mattress was terrible. Wouldn't get near the hot tub. The whole hotel is rundown with very dirty carpeting everywhere on every floor. Incredibly high priced for a miserable experience. My mistake...

I woke up to something crazy! I swear it was like someone got in my bed with me. I couldn't move, then I found a picture taken on my phone of me sleeping. I stayed there alone with the dead bolt locked. I can't explain it but I also smelled body odor randomly after I woke up at 4 am....

This was the worst bed we had EVER slept in. It was like sleeping on a bale of straw! The duvet cover had huge lumps as big as melons cut in half! The sink was cracked, the shower head was filthy, and the dresser was missing half the handles. Rooms are terribly overpriced, dark, and cheaply decorated! We called their...

I was on a motorcycle trip from KC to Lake Superior and back. I stopped here on my way home. I have been here a number of times although not in the last 3 or 4 years. With the recent low ratings maybe the place had gone down hill. I did not find that to be the case. First off,...

Checked in nicely but the room was old and rundown. Bed was cracked, lumpy pillows and comforter, tiles broken and missing grout and some missing tile spots had been painted over. We had a front room and a bed room, bedroom ok but other room dark and smelly. Since there were three of us checking in, we called down to...

My Momma told me that if I couldn't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. Given that, I looked for at least three positive things to say about the Water Street Inn. My husband and I came up with: nice towels, paper in the morning, scrumptious food (and very nice wait staff). Like another reviewer, we purchased a package...

Stillwater is a lovely small town to visit and explore. The Water Street Inn is right in the middle of everything and has the best location. But, it is way too expensive for what you get. We stayed their on a package deal, which made it affordable, but even that was expensive. I purchased an upgrade to get a river...
