Only ran into one sniffle during our stay. Our room wouldn’t lock- you could walk by our door and push it right open. Management and staff were quick to move us to a new room- we even got a poolside room which, in turn, was beneficial for us!

There are only two hotels is White Bear so this one was nearest our other commitments. If you have pets, it is a pet friendly hotel. Unfortunately for us, I didn’t ask that and we do have allergies-itchy eyes while we were in the room. There is only one small elevator not centrally located and our room was on the far end. The roof top bar/ grill was obviously a hot spot for the locals which left only parking in back for guests staying there. The room was small, for the price. Staff was friendly but I think it’s time to rebuild this place from the ground up.

The whole experience from check-in to check out was outstanding. Nice, quiet room, even though it was next to the elevator. Nice restaurant.
