    « 6 Day stay in November »

    Everything was what I expected. Room was clean ,staff was friendly and cooperative pool area was clean ,breakfast was what I expected , overall a very good trip ! My trip to Minnesota was a great time.

    « Pleasant stay »

    I highly recommend Best Western Plus@ White Bear Lake. Staff is helpful, rooms are comfortable , and shuttle service makes it a plus.Location is convenient. Area dining in Summer months is outstanding.

    « Clean Comfortable Friendly and best of all AFFORDABLE! »

    Have stayed here twice while in the area for business. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable with nice water pressure for the shower. The pool is nice and the area around the pool is kept neat and clean. Breakfast is your typical motel food but the young lady kept it well stocked and clean. Definitely a nice place to stay if going to the twin cities and you do not need to be downtown.

    « best western white bear country inn »

    great place to stay, always clean, friendly staff ,and located near my union hall. would recommend it to anyone staying in the area any time i have been unable to get a room here [due to short notice or the hotel being booked up] i always end up paying more for an unsatisfying experience

    « Great Value »

    This Best Western hotel is well appointed and the staff is cheerful and attentive. Kevin (front desk) exemplifies the high standards one might expect at a 5 star facility. Check in was simple and quick. The hot breakfast (included) was an enjoyable bonus. If I changed anything about it, it would be the "powdered eggs". My room was immaculate and updated. The bed was Very comfortable and I consider myself fussy when it comes to this aspect of travel accommodations. Ambient noise from hallway, plumbing use and adjacent rooms may pose an issue for some but my stay was quiet and restful. For the purposes of feedback, the structure could have better acoustical soundproofing but the benefits far outweigh this issue. The lobby is comfortable and handsomely decorated. Great spot to enter this post.

    « Children only »

    If you have kids....may be ok! We were there for a family wedding. Check-in took forever, like no one knew what was going on. Very noisy in lobby area. Too crowded. When asking a question the staff could not answer without getting a manager. Room was too small for a king size bed. Very uncomfortable room. Breakfast too small for the number of people using it poor flow.

    « White Bear Inn - MN »

    If you are going to the Twin Cities and staying on the North Side of St. Paul just go to the White Bear Inn and save yourself a lot of time and the possibility you might be disappointed. The folks at the Inn (especially Nick) will take care of your every need and go out of their way to make your stay like being at home. Except the bed is better!

    « Great place »

    My entire family stayed here for two days for my daughters wedding. And everything that was promised happened. Correct rooms were reserved, everything we requested was provided. Shuttle service to and from the reception was spot on. No hassles and service was excellent. Definitely one of my favorites in the local area

    « The Owner Came to Each Table Personally »

    I've stayed at this hotel and reviewed it numerous times, but each time another touch of personal, caring service catches my eye and I make a point of writing about it. As I was having a cup of coffee and some food in the morning, the owner personally came around to each table where people were eating breakfast and asked two questions "how is your stay?" and "is there anything we can do better?". That should be the standard in all hotels, and that is ultimately the culture that Mr. Foussard has created in this hotel.

    « Best Western White Bear Country Inn »

    I have stayed here many times and I will keep coming back. It is one of my favorite places to stay in the Twin Cities. It is one of the few places where I know it is in a good location and that it is pet friendly. The only bad part was there were so many stains on the carpeting from prior pets.

    « Poor Experience »

    Arrived on my wife and I's anniversary. They changed our reservation from a suite to a pool side room right next to the breakfast station. Front desk was not helpful at all. They were on their cellphones for 10 minutes before they actually spoke to me.

    « Great Country Inn »

    I don't normally write about hotels because I stay in a lot of them as a traveling sports photographer but this Best Western Plus White Bear Country Inn is worth noting. Don't let the 30 minute drive from MSP fool you, it's worth the ride. I live in Los Angeles so it takes me that long to find a great radio station! The hotel is very clean, the rooms nicely decorated with wall art, great bedding, comforters, marble shower, Keurig coffee in room, desk setup, good wifi, and a great staff. They extended my stay an extra 90 minutes, had a great attitude, good breakfast, etc. And the owner walks the property asking if there is anything they can do better. What a shock, people who care! I'll stay here again for sure. Worth the ride!

    « Would have been 5 stars, but... »

    We stayed 2 nights here. Upon arrival at 7pm Thursday, we were told we couldn't check in yet. What??? Apparently they were doing some sort of tour of the rooms, and ours was one of them. We were told to come back at 7:30. So.... we waited in our car for half an hour, went back to the front desk at 7:30, where we were checked in. Unloaded the car, went to our room. The door was open, they were still clearing out whatever they had been using in there (table, ice buckets, etc.). So....we waited in the hall until someone came to get the long table out. Eventually, we had a good stay. The hotel is in a good location, it's quiet, and the staff is polite. I recommend the onsite restaurant, the burgers are great. Like the title of my review said, I would have probably given it 5 stars if they hadn't annoyed me right at the beginning. I am still wondering what would have happened if we had arrived at 3pm, which is check in time. Also, it would have been nice if we were given an apology...

    « Great Place and Friendly »

    Rooms are good, but the owner is around and interact with the customers. He even delivered food to the Terrace at 11:00PM then talked to him the next morning at 8;00AM. Rudy's has great food......The breakfast is quick to clean the area and keep the tables open to others. Food was good.

    « Our visit at the White Bear Country INN in Whitebear, Minnesoata »

    This Hotel has very comfortable facilities in a very nice location at White Bear Lake Minnesota with friendly personnel with moderate cost. The breakfast was especially very good. I plan to stay there the next time I am in the St. Paul, Minnesota area.

    5
    « We'll be back! »

    We spent 2 nights here while visiting family in the area....what a nice hotel in a safe and convenient location! White Bear Lake is a lovely quaint community with so much to offer! We felt very welcomed by the hotel staff. Room was clean, quiet and comfortable. We will be back to stay several times.

    « Awesome stay in White Bear Lake, MN »

    The White Bear Country Inn is a beautiful place to stay. The room was totally updated (BT enabled alarm clock, AC & USB outlets on the night-stand and desk light fixtures) and very clean. Parking is available next to the building and near an entrance that is convenient to the room. They serve real eggs scrambled up rather than those biscuit paddies that many other places have. Flavored creamers are available. This place is Great! Stay here and you will not be disappointed!

    5
    « Home away from Home »

    The staff greet me by name, my room is always clean and comfortable, minor maintenance items are taken care of immediately. This property is just a couple blocks from a great downtown area, and very pleasant run along White Bear Lake. When you add in the great food at both the Rooftop and in the restaurant, what else could you ask for?

    « great stay »

    great stay as always i come to the twin cities 10 to 15 times a year for work related conferences the only time i dont stay here is when i book too late and they are full,the hilton or other places i wind up in always dissapoint in comparison

    « Not your Father's Best Western »

    I've stayed hear with clients and time after time, they can't believe how nice this Best Western is. (Nothing against BW but this is several notches above their average) Place is super clean, great pool, nice indoor bar but the deck bar on the roof is the star of this place. Great for relaxing, cold drinks and good atmosphere. On site restaurant is very good as well. The employees give 110% every visit.

  • 5
    « Alway a pleasure »

    Always try to book at Best Western in White Bear Lake, friendly staff & clean rooms. Pretty quiet at night & plenty of parking with a great location to downtown White Bear and close to the freeway. Only problem I have is trying to get a room there, they are always booked because it's the best hotel around. So book way in advance.

    5
    « Good location and good hotel »

    We were on our way to the N. Shore and stayed here overnight. the hotel was what one should expect of a B-W Plus-very good! Staff could not have been better and having a restaurant on premises is a plus-never mind quite noisy(most are today). We will stay here again.

    5
    « Excellent Service »

    My two daughters and a friend of the family stayed for two nights. The service we received was above and beyond any hotel that I have stayed at in the past. In fact, we were spoiled by how nice this place was as compared to the other places we stayed on the last half of our trip.

    5
    « So much fun »

    Great hotel!! We were upgraded to a pool-side room and hung out on the pool deck all evening. Breakfast was hearty. Loved the décor too. Rudy's roof top was fun. I've never seen anything like that outside of a big downtown area.

    5
    « Hotel Review »

    Each and every one of our stays are great. Treated like family. Wouldn't stay any where else Staff, food faciities all great The roof top bar is terrific. Rudys Red Eye restuarant is also a wonderful place to eat

    « pleasantly surprised »

    Barbara has a wonderful staff. No complaints about employees or way I was treated Highly recommend to anyone traveling to this area for business, pleasure-whatever. Hotel m housekeeping tried to make it pleasant stay. Front desk clerks were knowledgeable and friendly.

    « Improving An Already Great Product »

    This is the Best Western I've stayed at the most by far and the owner's commitment to excellence is reflected with each new stay. The suite I stayed in this time has a few new paintings, new digital clocks (with a faint blue display that does not disturb one's sleep but is visible enough in the dark to be useful), and the walk-in shower was further improved such that water can be turned on without the guest getting wet with cold water as the hot water makes its way to the shower head. The direct billing arrangement simplifies paperwork a great deal and I would highly recommend it to any business travelers who come to the area more than once a year. My only regret is that the owner had already left before I arrived and thus I didn't get to catch up with him, but his personal, daily presence at the hotel is reflected on the high level of service delivered.

    5
    « Exceptional guest room »

    On this trip I stayed in RM 204, one of the updated rooms. The bathtub was gone and in it's place was a tiled shower with extremely good water pressure. That was such a big improvement. Another reason I like this hotel is the food. They go out of their way to accommodate our group.

    3
    « Disappointed with Staff »

    We left items behind, called the hotel twice, left 2 messages for Housekeeping. No call returned. Also left a message for General Manager, no call returned. It is disappointing the staff will not return our call to attempt to assist us with our lost items. Poor customer service for returning customer calls. We still have not received a return call. We will purchase new items which were left behind.

    4
    « Best Western Bear Lake »

    Hotel was clean and well kept, pool area and jacuzzi, and roof top bar a plus. Nice area of White Bear Lake, a few blocks from the lake, also a nice area to walk along the lake about 5 blocks away. Kids had a good time.

  • 5
    « White Bear Country Inn »

    The best choice for business or pleasure while visiting White Bear Lake. Excellent value and quality with great on site restaurant and bar PLUS in easy walking distance of the Lake trails and downtown. They are popular so you need to book reservations early.

    5
    « Stop off before heading to Duluth »

    This has been an annual visit on our way to Duluth for Grandmas Marathon. The hotel is always clean with tasteful decor. The staff never disappoints and goes out of their way to assist. Definitely a 5 star.

    4
    « Best night sleep in forever! »

    The hotel grounds and rooms are just exceptional. I would go back passing through the Minneapolis area every time. The only reason I don't give this place the full amount of stars was that my husband and I were arriving quite late and the front desk night employee treated us very poorly almost as if were stupid.... which I suppose could be his personal opinion, but something about his persona tells me he's just that way. Customer service is almost the most important thing about an experience for me.

    5
    « My favorite hotel! »

    Absolutely love this hotel! I've stayed here three times for a total on 22 days. I've never had a bad experience. The staff is fantastic and have everything you need no questions asked. There is a complementary breakfast available with eggs and meat. There are many carb type foods available as well as yogurt etc. Coffee is available anytime day or night. Very nice pool/hot tub centrally located and close to the bar/restaurant. Speaking of the restaurant, I was blown away by the excellent food and service. Not what you would typically find for a restaurant attached to a hotel. There is a cute roof cafe/bar on the third floor as well. I was there on business for two of the trips and had the pleasure of being shuttled by Bill the driver. Bill is awesome! Very polite, patient and accommodating. You need to go the the drug store at 10 at night or a local night spot? Bill can get you there AND pick you up, any time. He's also a wealth of knowledge about the area and best places to go for food or what not. It was such a pleasant experience I made sure to stop back in my way through on vacation.

    5
    « A Day at White Bear Lake »

    We happened to stay during a local festival. Parades, car shows etc. White Bear Lake is a lovely community, and only 20 minutes from the Twin Cities. The Best Western was as good as it gets. The restaurant has an excellent menu. We had the salmon, baby back ribs and scallops---all excellent. Great room service.

    5
    « Rosenbauer seminar »

    Excellent accommodations very friendly staff!! Had no reason to leave the motel other than for business! Love the indoor pool. Love the restaurant on site with roof top bar and a bar down stairs. Room were very clean and comfortable. Would recommend coming here anytime your in town and looking for a place to stay. The front desk was very helpful with everything.

    5
    « Only one suggestion...... »

    We found that the rooms with two double beds did not provide ample space between the bed and the wall to easily get up and down to the end of the bed. We would have preferred a room with only one bed and more space to move around during our stay.

    4
    « Weekend get away »

    This was my third or fourth time staying at this Motel. The location is perfect for access to the Twin Cities but still has a get away feel. The motel itself has all of the amenities that I look for and the location and the setting is very nice. I especially love the walk about feel of downtown White Bear Lake and being able to utilize the lake and all that it has to offer.

    4
    « Worth the Trip »

    My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Plus in Whit Bear Lake. The room was spacious, clean and most importantly, quiet. We relaxed with a swim in the indoor pool before bedtime. Breakfast offered a good variety of items - both hot and cold. We were pleasantly surprised by a visit from the manager who was interested in any improvements that we might suggest to the hotel or its service. It was worth the trip north of St. Paul to stay there.

    5
    « Rating our stay »

    Having stayed at the Best Western numerous times a year for the last 5-6 years I will continue to enjoy the hotel (unless they are booked up) I HOPE that NEVER happens. Nick at the front desk makes each stay a pleasure.

    « Our stay »

    We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. We had a 3 floor room with a view of pool area. A little noisy in the morning but not so much annoying at all. After all a good night's sleep is all we needed. We're up early to get to the Festival grounds in Somerset. The front line staff we had issue with (rude) but this was rectified by the daytime manager. All in all a great, clean place to stay. Go to the breakfast ! It's really good??

    5
    « Far exceeded expectations »

    This hotel was a very pleasant surprise in almost every way. My room was small but it was a corner room and I was by myself so I didn't mind. The furnishings and appointments exceeded what I would normally expect to find in a Best Western. They were comparable to what I have found in much pricier properties. It appears to be recently and nicely renovated. I did not eat in the restaurant but appeared to be quite upscale....maybe even a bit too much if you are travelling with a family or on a budget. But White Bear Lake is full of restaurants. The complimentary breakfast was excellent and served near a very attractive pool courtyard. Service throughout the hotel was friendly and helpful. I would stay there again without hesitation.

    5
    « everyone was very accomodating and polite. »

    the room was very clean, nice showers and beds. it wasnt too far from the Rudys, which makes awesome food and has great bar with friendly staff. The shuttle driver Bill Matthews was very informative, polite and made sure we arrived on time.

    5
    « Great atmosphere »

    This hotel has it right. Every employee goes out of their way to give great service. They smile and interact with guests and sincerely appear to like their job. It creates a great atmosphere for guest.

    « Didn't realize we were paying for a holodome »

    In town for a baptism and this was the only suggested hotel. Surprised ahead of time that we were paying so much for a BW Hotel (we've stayed in many and are generally happy with them). Once we got there we saw there was an indoor pool/holodome that we didn't know about. Our room overlooked this area, not a thrill. We also didn't need the restaurant and lounge, but loved the morning breakfast. In the future I'll check a little more as to why/what we're paying extra $ for.

    5
    « Very nice hotel. Great rates. Very clean. Great Restaurant. Fantastic shuttle service. »

    Seemed like it should have cost more for how nice it was. Nice little pool. Great restaurant and lounge. Shuttle service was fantastic. Bill took us wherever we wanted to go all day. He organized all of our trips we just had to tell him where and when we wanted to go and he would let us know when to meet him in the lobby. He even organized our trip to the airport on our last day. All we had to do was give him our flight times and he did the rest! Great experience!

    « Don't plan on getting any sleep! »

    Do not stay here if there is a wedding! The band was very loud. I should have known something was up when they provided complementary ear plugs. When I called down to complain about the loud music. I was told the wedding party was allowed to have music until midnight. I wasn't told when I checked in that my room was over the pool area and that it would very loud until midnight!! I guess only the wedding matter!

    5
    « Quiet. Excellent Towels. Great Service. Nice Location. »

    We stayed here for a week with 3 kids and our dog. The first thing I noticed was that the center pool does not smell like chlorine - its a salt water pool. They provide lush, yellow towels in the hotel room. We had the family suite which was very comfortable. The breakfast every morning has fresh scrambled eggs and a different choice of meat every morning. Not powdered eggs! Rudy's Restaurant is fine dining. Great food but expensive. The Ribeye Steak Dinner was $39. Is was good - but not sure worth $39. The owner of the hotel was present on site many days and personally greeted us and asked if there was anything they could do to make our stay better. Was impressive to see many school events being hosted at the hotel (hockey award ceremonies, etc.).

    5
    « GREAT STAY »

    After many, many stays we are still impressed with everything they have to offer. Will NOT stay anywhere else. Nick at the front desk is a "friend" and takes such good care of us. I recommend is strongly.

    5
    « Great Experience »

    Good Service, Comforting Decor, All around nice evening. We reserved a King room Suite. It was perfect for us. I would highly recommend this Hotel. The complimentary breakfast was lacking in options of food choice. We're used to having more to choose from (eggs, bacon, potatoes, waffles, oatmeal, etc.) Otherwise our experience was good.

    « Great staff, helped me find my keys! »

    I was immediately impressed with the staff when I checked in. I accident y left my rental car keys in the business center. When the the staff found them, they somehow managed to identify the rental car agency and determine my name. They retuned the keys to me before I even realized I had lost them. It wouls have been very expensive if I had to replace the keys.

    « Favorite while in Minneapolis/St Paul »

    This is a lovely inn, with historic features, nicely decorated, and a first-rate restaurant with warm weather rooftop seating. Good location, nice staff, ample amenities. Have I noted the high quality of the restaurant?

    « A great place to stay »

    Everything you need under one roof. Great restaurant. Nice pool area. Knowledgeable staff at the bar with great prices. Plenty of room for parking and a McDonalds next door for the kids. White Bear Country Inn

    « Always a good place to stay »

    This hotel always meets expectations. Really enjoy the meals served at Rudy's. The staff is always cordial. Usually stay here once a year or so for business. Like that it is convenient to downtown White Bear, a great place to walk and shop.

    « meets every need »

    What a great place. Big towels, beautiful shower, SEVEN pillows, extra blankets, LOTS of coffee, micro, frig. We could have used one more chair. We asked for an extra luggage rack and it was provided. Very nicely decorated and lots of lighting. The bar and restaurant (Rudy's) are absolutely beautiful! During happy hour, they have snacks and hard boiled eggs, complimentary, at the bar. I'm never sure about wifi because we use our own. Just a wonderful place. Stay here.

    « Great hotel »

    I have enjoyed staying at this hotel for several years now, when passing traveling to Minnesota. Friendly, helpful staff and well maintained comfortable rooms. Very nice restaurant and lounge. Nice quiet location near lots of shopping.

    « Another great stay in White Bear Lake »

    The staff at White Bear Country Inn goes out of it's way to be friendly and helpful. The facility is clean and maintained well. The recent remodeling of the bathrooms adds to the comfortable surroundings. Add the great location and the quaint downtown area and you have the perfect place to stay in the MSP area. We have stayed here many times and will be back.

    « Great local place to stay for the kids »

    My twin girls love to stay here every once in a while with their friends and they feel like they are on vacation even though we live close. If we have a 3-day weekend from school, this is always what they want to do. Come and hang out by the pool and get a great meal at Rudy's.

    « Decent place »

    Clean rooms, small pool, and great location for getting into the cities. Pool was small bit did not have that overwhelming smell of chlorine. Rooms were super clean and staff were on point with anything we needed

    4
    « Beautiful Indoor pool, hot tub, and surrounding tables »

    This is my second stay. I liked the convenience of being right on Hwy 61 N. It has a top notch restaurant attached with a fast food restaurant next door. The rooms are larger than normal with a fridge and microwave. I liked the walk in shower. The eating area tables are not that convenient for breakfast if crowded because of the layout. The hot breakfast choices are good.

    « My home away from home. »

    I travel to White Bear Lake for business frequently. As I enter the door on Sunday evening I'm greeted by name by Nick, the clerk at the desk. He always does his best to accommodate my room type requests. The staff in Rudy's are also friendly and welcoming. I wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else. White Bear Country Inn is my home away from home.

    « Anniversary Stay »

    My wife and I decided to stay here on our one year anniversary. We were super excited for peace and quiet and a night away from our two children. When we first arrived we were super impressed with the decor and how clean everything looked. We ended up having to wait close to five minutes before an employee came up to the counter to check us in. She was very apologetic and friendly to my wife and I. I would suggest a bell or something to notify employees when a guest is waiting to be checked in. We arrived in the room and were very happy with our suite. The happiness did not last long due to the walls being paper thin. We could hear the people in the next room over clear as day and could hear the commotion in the hallways. Also we were next to the stairwell and vending machines and you could hear them clear as day as well. Finally when we decided to get into the whirlpool in our suite the jets barely worked and were super loud to the point we couldn't hear each other talk. Overall the hotel seemed nice just disappointed the price we paid couldn't get us peace and quiet which we were hoping for due to a night away from our children, and the amenities didn't work like they should which is the reason we got the suite. Definitely don't think we will be back for a stay.

    4
    « pool side rooms are great »

    We like to stay at this hotel for the pool side rooms. The kids can swim and the parents can sit by the pool. On our last trip, the chlorine levels in the pool were off causing skin irritation, but that has not been our experience in previous stays. Our guest room could have used a more thorough cleaning, especially vacuuming around the beds, but overall we were please with our experience and would stay at this hotel again.

    « White Bear MN. trip »

    Had a great trip to white bear, mn. Stayed at the best western country inn. Great service and great place to stay. Had to be shuttled back and forth to the Schwing plant and the driver was awesome. Bill Matthews went above and beyond his call of duty. I asked him if he could get me to the airport on Thursday at 5:00 in the morning. His response was, no problem. He was a great help for us. Give him a raise, he deserves it.

    « First impression not a good one »

    Disappointing. Very dirty, worn out, cigarette butts all over the ground near rear entrances, carpets unvacuumed in hallways and in the room. OVERPRICED. I canceled my reservation for subsequent nights booked and went elsewhere.

    « Lousy policies »

    I had a reservation on a Company Direct Bill account (corporate) that requires no deposit or cc for incidentals as we as a company do not charge incidentals to our rooms - we have expense accounts. I inquired as to the amount they would charge to my card if I did by chance give them one and it was equivalent to 2 nights room and tax ( the reservation was for 2 nights). I then inquired when this would then be unloaded from the card, and was told it would take 7 - 10 days. This hotel wants to take my money for 7-10 days when I am only going to stay for 2? If it is paid up front, it should be refunded at checkout, anything else is fraud. I have been traveling on this corporate account for over 10 years and never have run into anything like this. If by accident there were any "incidentals", the hotel is authorized to direct bill my company who then collects it from me (it is in their contract with the corporate account.) Needless to say, I went someplace else where the staff/hotel was more reasonable and not so greedy. My company is now also pulling their corporate account for this hotel.

    « Best Western Plus in White Bear: A nice place to stay. »

    We've stayed at a number of different Best Westerns, and this is one of the nicest ones. The rooms are clean and up to date. Their breakfast is quite good, and there is a very nice restaurant located in the building, overlooking the pool. Check in and out were quick and easy.

    The online pet policy states nothing about not accepting cats. Upon check in we were told no cats. They were nice enough to let us stay, but told we couldn't come back with cats. Otherwise, it is a nice place!

    « Transportation »

    Bill Matthews was our driver of the Hotel shuttle. He was wonderful. He had the van heated & got us to our class on time each day. He showed up to take us back & was on time every day. He offered to transport us anywhere we wanted to go. He was a great resource for local information & history. He was pleasant & helpful. If you need transportation ask for Bill! The Hotel was awesome too. Front desk folks were pleasant & helpful. Good food at the restaurant & good service. The only negative is that the hot tub is too small & after about 3 people are in there it's too crowded. Overall a good experience.

    « Very nice remodeled rooms....done right. »

    It was good service at the counter when checking in and out. We had a wedding to go to located just down the road. If there was a negative, it's the effort of getting on the highway from the hotel...to go south, you need to go thru a McDonalds parking lot and get on the road with no lights. Or...go through downtown that takes a little while. Hey, the hotel is good, they are going thru a major remodeling project and the rooms, bed and decor are very nice. A little tight...since it's a hotel that was built in the 60's...but like I said, very nice room and area for breakfast. We would stay again.

    Our hotel room was very nicely decorated as was the lobby and pool area. Check in was fast and easy, housekeeping kept our room clean and smelling good, and breakfast staff were helpful! The breakfast was always fresh with several hot options (eggs, sausage, pancakes,& waffles). Room has many extras such as Bath and Body shampoo/conditioner/lotion, earplugs, vanity set, and Keurig coffee maker.

    « Pleasant stay »

    This was a nice country best western with a friendly and helpful staff. There are some renovations going on but nothing that caused disruption and you could see the bathroom improvements made in the rooms which were nicely done. Rooms are spacious and quiet. There is a nice restaurant attached. The shuttle service and especially the driver were outstanding. My only complaint or suggestion is regarding availability of bottled water. I arrived at 11 pm and no water in room or offered at check in. No lobby area shop for snacks or drinks. Only vending machines on each floor. Of those only 1 offered water which required a bit of a hunting expedition. All other machines were sodas only. Oh and bathroom sink was seriously needing a drain cleaning as it barely drained. Front desk was alerted and they seemed grateful to get feedback and ensured it would be handled promptly but I only stayed 2 nights and did not see if they followed through. All in all solid and recommended especially if they make availability of water a lot better.

    Although there were 10 pillows in the room they were all over-stuffed and impossible to sleep on. The beds were hard. The staff was nice and the rooms clean, but after a bad night's sleep the overall experience was not one we want to repeat again.

    Unfortunately, room 108 was inundated with party noise on Friday night. If you have an issue with noise, request a room elsewhere in the hotel..We stay at this hotel about 5 or 6 nights a year. The food was very good. Facilities were excellent. I realize the staff really tries to accommodate the guests. I don't know what can be done about the party noise.

    « Business Trip »

    I would highly recommend this motel. The rooms were excellent (roomy, clean and comfortable). The lounge and the sitting area with a fireplace was cozy, hospitable and friendly. Every evening the restaurant/lounge area was packed, and the food was excellent and prices extremely affordable. They have a roof bar/restaurant, but the weather was too cold. The outside perimeter was well lit with plenty of parking. I will be staying here for my next business trip.

    We had a large family gathering and chose this location. What a clean, accomodating, and quality facility. The restaurant exceeded our expectations. We had 25-30 prople for a dinner, the staff was an invisible top quality team, that managed us a large restaurant. It mus be good the locals were in full attendance. The noise factors were wonderful, and quality of food was special.

    We stayed in this hotel for one night with our 4 children. We had a 2 room suite which was plenty spacious and nice. Kids enjoyed the pool area, was warm and well kept. Did not use the restaurant, but the continental breakfast was nice. Nice lobby area, room was clean and comfortable. Would stay again. McDonalds close to hotel as well as gas station and other restaurants. Not a overly busy location with much traffic. Easy to find.

    « Wedding Day Terror »

    My son was married in September and we had 30 rooms booked at this hotel. When my wife and I attempted to check in they told us we didn't have a room booked. The strange thing about this is my brother and his wife checked in a few hours before us and they used my name when talking with him. They said they had a room under my name at that time. Unfortunately they did not even apologize for the mistake they made because we found out they gave our room to someone else. We had no place to stay at our own sons wedding so we had not choice but to drive home. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone as in my opinion the manager is dishonest. She tried to tell me that my brother actually cancelled my room. When I told her my brother was near and would be happy to join us in this conversation, she turned red in the face and had nothing more to say. All she had to do was simply apologize and admit they made a mistake. I found out later they charge my son and his new wife double for their room. They did fix this mistake but it is clear to me they have issues at the front desk of this hotel and also a poor manager. Shame on you!!

    The room was good and the heated pool was great. However, the staff made this hotel stand out.

    « Absolutely Fab-U-Lous! »

    We stayed just one evening here...but...I wish it had been more! The outside area was very well maintained...colorful flowers and trees. There was even a pet exercise area...a grill and picnic table outside. We arrived a bit before normal check in time...and were pleased we were able to check right in. Shelby [front desk] was so cheerful! I inquired about a complimentary upgrade as I am an upper level rewards member...which sometimes allows for those nice extra perks. Shelby quickly found me an upgrade to a family suite. Many thanks Shelby!! :) I have to make mention of how impressed I was with the key card system. Instead of putting your card into the lock...which is typical at most hotels...you just tap your key on the lock and viola! [It's the little things. Lol!] Upon entering the room...we were thrilled with how spacious it was. Besides the two queen beds...we had a couch [pull-out] and two nice chairs...work desk and a kitchenette--with real dishes/cups/silverware. The kitchen area also had a microwave/mini fridge/dishwasher/sink/Keurig coffee maker. The bathroom had a vanity and closet area separate from the tub and toilet...which I always appreciate. They even leave a little rubber ducky on the tub..that you can keep. My toddler loved this! The toiletries were great also: Neutrogena face soap and Bath and Body works soap/shampoo/conditioner/lotion. There was even a shower cap. The beds were plush and oh-so-comfortable...we slept like babies! They had ear plugs on the bedside table as well...a very thoughtful perk...as not everyone is a deep sleeper. Our room did overlook the awesome pool area. Since we were there during the week...it never got too loud. I could see how it may though...on busier days. Speaking of the pool area...talk about gorgeous! It was themed to represent a European-esque village. [Think outside...inside.] Inside the gated pool area--besides the pool and hot tub--were fountains, statues and trees...giving it even more of park-like feel. There are tables both inside and outside the gated area. Part of the restaurant also has seating alongside the pool. Great use of space! The restaurant: Rudy's Red Eye...looked very nice. We did not dine there so...I can't comment too much. They do have an fantastic looking outdoor rooftop patio seating area though...weather-permitting. Seemed like a fun and lively environment. The lobby is comfortable...with seating and a fireplace. Just off the lobby is a game room with several video games...for children of all ages. Also nearby was a business center with computers/printers for guest use. The free wifi worked very well...no slowness or outages. 24-hour coffee is available outside the breakfast area. Breakfast in the morning was good. It's an expanded continental breakfast. They had scrambled eggs/sausage/biscuits...and the usual suspects: make-your-own waffles/yogurt/cereal/pastries/bagels/english muffins/fruit/coffee/juice...even lemonade. Everything tasted fresh. Seating is in the pool area. The property is very modern and well-kept. You feel right at home and all the employees we encountered--everyone from front desk to housekeeping and maintenance were so friendly...making it a point to acknowledge you and chat a bit. Wonderful!! Adjacent to the hotel is a McDonald's. So...you do have other dining options if the hotel restaurant isn't your thing. Also...there is a gas station very close. Great location...simple to find and get to. It's obvious they take much pride in their property. This is easily one of the nicest Best Westerns I've stayed in...all around. We will absolutely return!

    Stopped for one night with hubby. Nice room, not the typical bland hotel furniture and decor. Love the old White Bear Lake historical society photos with descriptions in the hallways. Shower stall in bathroom really nice. Never seen one without tub which is fine because how many people actually use a regular bathtub in a hotel. Hotel Restaurant, Rudy's Ribeye Grille was really nice. Food was good. We came in on a cold day so missed out on rooftop dining which would have been neat. We wanted to swim or use hot tub but chose not to because it's located right outside restaurant. They also have several dining tables around pool and since we're no hotties in suits, we didn't feel comfortable getting starred at by their customers. Pool area has decor of buildings like inside Vegas casinos so that was neat. They had free earplugs in our room (another hotel first) for sleeping which makes us nervous about it being a noisy hotel. Not a good sign but we shall see.

    « Unique Experience, Not perfect but good. »

    Pros - Saltwater pool, very nice jacuzzi suites w/fireplace and walk in showers, decent bed, very good extended hot & cold breakfast, rooftop restaurant and neat themed pool area. Cons - Noisy overall between rooms but not floors, cleaning staff does not speak English. The overall shining issue is that it is noisy between rooms but there is cement between floors. Your door is no consolation to stopping the noise. Ear plugs are available but who wants to use them? We had an issue with communication to the cleaning staff who woke us up TWICE before we were checked out. Front desk staff was very friendly. The saltwater pool is very comfortable and great for anyone who has issues with a chlorinated pool like my significant other does. The area around the pool is surrounded with tables and sits in a triangle with an indoor restaurant/bar on one side and rooms on the other two sides that are themed somewhat like a European village. It is a unique experience. The hot tub by the pool is a little awkward with the jagged brick that lines the top of it but otherwise pretty nice. Room for maybe 2-4 couples at best in that. It has a small fitness center that is about what you would expect with as much equipment they are able to stuff in there. The breakfast goes beyond continental as it says. I do believe that they switch up some of the options a little bit but it also includes hot eggs, sausage, and two types of hot waffles to make on your own. Plus, yogurts, juice, breads/pastries, cereal and things you would expect. The jacuzzi suite we stayed in was away from the pool side as we requested by the over-abundant amount of posts about how noisy the pool makes your room, which I would believe to be true. Other than the noise we experienced and the hard robes in the room, it was very nice. It had a couch, a couple of nice comfy sitting chairs, a desk and chair, a second chair next to the desk, jacuzzi wrapped in mirrors, and a fairly comfy bed topper on what seemed to be an average hotel cheaper bed...which slept okay. The bathroom had a roomy walk in shower with toilet in the same area and a door separating to the vanity just outside. The fireplace was nice and just turns on with a flip of a switch. For the price paid without the simple issues with being woke up, this room is a great value and nice little getaway on the Northeast side of the Twin Cities.

    « Great Rooms and Great Service! »

    I have so many wonderful things to say about this place! We stayed a lot of different hotels during our honeymoon and road trip home. The price we paid for this room and what we got for that price made this by far the best deal! This was our wedding night room. My mother in law booked a fireplace/whirlpool suite for me and my husband. The room was HUGE! It was so nice. There was a couch, table, lovely fireplace, and my favorite part was the whirlpool. After a long crazy wedding it was so nice to just curl up next to the fire and soak our tired bones in the whirlpool. The hotel at first glance wasn't really anything to look at. I had actually dropped my mom off at her hotel and was floored by how modern and sleek it was. When we came here I was a little sad by how it appeared to be kind of older and maybe not as well kept. Never judge a book by its cover though. The hotel was actually quite nice, yes a bit older but still nice. The rooms were clean, well kept, and so nice. Now the hotel also went above and beyond for our guests. I say our guests because we setup a hotel block here for our wedding. They were so easy to setup a block with and our guests had no issues reserving rooms. We also had a VERY important wedding letter that had to be delivered to guests when they arrived. I dropped the letter off and the hotel assured me that every guest would get one. This letter was important because it contained shuttle times to and from the wedding. The hotel did that (the other hotel I blocked at did not). I also have to give a HUGE shout out to Matt. Matt worked the front desk pretty much the entire time my guests were there, and he dealt with our drunk selves on the wedding night. When my best lady checked in Matt made a comment about the wedding saying something about the bride and groom. My friend corrected him and you would have thought she shot him dead. He quickly tried to make up for his error. She had a good laugh and told him it was fine. I was touched by the fact that he even tried to make up for that small error that anyone could have made. Matt also did a great job of dealing with me when I called asking for a late check out. He jokingly negotiated with me on a later time so we could enjoy our room more. Every guest I spoke to had the nicest things to say about him. He definitely was a highlight of the hotel. Finally a big thank you to whoever (maybe it was Matt) put up the sign saying congratulations to me and my husband. My friends had asked about the sign out front which said congratulations to another couple. Because we weren't getting married in the hotel we figured our name wouldn't go up. When we pulled up that night we saw our names and a congratulations up. It really was so touching. This place made a perfect day somehow even more perfect!
