I've stayed here 3 times before and continue stay here every time. I came in to St Paul for business and they will offer a complimentary shuttle to the airport. Bill was my shuttle driver...

Very nice hotel, we have stayed there twice, we have had dinner in the dining room once, and dinner & appetizers in the bar area, both were very nice and the food was very good. I would recommend this facility and the city of White Bear Lake. Hotel has a roof top patio that we plan to try this summer.

Consistent and friendly staff -- makes being away from home for business trips a lot nicer! I never consider staying anywhere else when in town. Awesome on-site restaurant for lunch and dinner. In warmer months, the rooftop restaurant / bar is the best in town. This hotel would easily be great for families, too!

I've stayed in a good share of hotels for work, but am generally limited to 100/night. We stayed here for a wedding, paying just a smidgen more than my usual, and the difference was worth it! There were little perks, like earplugs (3 weddings staying there that weekend) and a little rubber ducky in the shower. The exercise room and...

I recently discovered these Best Western Plus hotels. A coworker tipped me off to the one in Duluth and after the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in I was sold. White Bear Lake Inn lived up to the standard. Whatever Best Western is doing to help the independent operators maintain these great standards is working. My room was great....

The White Bear Inn is a great example of an individually owned property having a personality while having a brand name. The owner has really made his mark as well as a statement as to how each owner can make a difference. I think it starts with his philosophy transcending to the top quality people he employs. Always a pleasure...

As I stated in a previous review, we had some issues with this hotel last summer. I was contacted and offered a reduced rate to try them again. We returned to MN and stayed there Thursday night. So glad we gave them another chance. Check-in was flawless, we were given a free upgrade to a fireplace/whirlpool suite. The staff was...

This hotel was great. Booked online and the check in process was very easy. Parking waste only complaint at the time because the restaurant at the hotel was very busy.

Dominic Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We really appreciate the kind words. The parking sometimes can be a bit challenging when our award winning restaurant is busy.
