Thank you for your kind review of the Water Street Inn in Stillwater.

3 out of 5
We weren’t able to check in until 4:00 then there was a huge line. We were charged a 20.00 parking fee. The location is perfect for downtown activities and the views of the water are beautiful.

King size frame, queen size mattress . That was weird. No refrigerator for leftovers from dinner. Had to keep outside on the deck, thank God it was cold that night! Very noisy neighbors upstairs and a lot of raucous activity outside in the street that woke us several times.

Needless to say when we walked in we were impressed.feeling Covid safe. Was not clean. Bottle cap, pretzel on floor. Was it even vacuumed. Bathroom in old section in very much need of sprucing up. Disappointed since we paid extra hoping for better.

Sorry to hear this, I will talk with housekeeping about this right away. Do you know what your room number was?

Pros: The location
Cons: The bed and their hospitality
Location: It is right in Stillwater by the river and the main shopping.
We had been looking forward to trying this hotel for a long time. The bed was very uncomfortable. It is the hardest mattress I have ever slept on. The tub was terrific, we very much enjoyed that. When we checked out, we asked if we could leave our car in their parking lot for a few hours while we explored Stillwater. The answer was no it must be moved or it would be towed. I could understand if they were expecting a large influx of guests or the lot was already full, but neither was the case. For $200 a night, I expect way more comfort and hospitality.

Misleading room description...

Cons: Don't say all your rooms have queen size beds, when they are CLEARLY not!
We checked in, and upon arriving in our room, it was OBVIOUS the bed was NOT queen size as specified. When I inquired at the front desk, the girl said that all of their rooms have queen size beds. I told her that we both have Queens, and those were NOT queen... more like a double. She tried calling the manager (not on site), and when he didn't answer, she said she'll have him get in touch with us. We were there 3 nights, and never heard another word from them. Girl said she was new and didn't want to make a decision without manager's approval... Other than that big issue, the place is beautiful... very historic.
