Book directly with hotel- not a third party site. We booked adjoining rooms from a thurs party site and when we arrived the rooms were not right. The hotel staff were very rude and put out and couldn't make it right. Also our rooms were not available on time - 3p so we sat in the lobby to wait. The... More

I have stayed here multiple times over the last few years and I have never had a bad experience. I would recommended eating at the restaurant attached to it as well - very nice spot to sit and have a drink and a bite to eat after a long day of travel.

Hi Cjbear1, Thank you for the fantastic review! I am so glad that our team continues to wow you with our great customer service. Bonfire restaurant is great to have attached to the hotel, so even on those unpredictable Minnesota days you can stroll down our hall and not be affected by the weather. And who doesn't love Bonfire's happy... More

Nice hotel with an included breakfast with lots of choices. Really nice staff and very clean hotel. And the cookies in the lobby were delicious! This hotel is not "downtown" where the Verizon Center is.

Hi MapleGrove4, Thank you for the great review. We are pleased that you enjoyed the variety of the Be Our Guest hot breakfast and the cookies. You are correct we are located more towards the shopping district of Mankato, but only a short cab ride from the downtown. Safe Travels! More

My husband and I wanted to get away for a night and Country Inn & Suites provided a wonderful experience. The room was very clean and the jacuzzi was enjoyable. The breakfast had a large selection and was very good. It was a nice relaxing stay.

The staff at this hotel is the best, kindest staff members I have ever encountered at a hotel. They were accommodating, gracious, and very positive. In addition, the hotel is super clean! It could use some cosmetic updating in little areas around, but the lobby, pool, rooms, hallways, bathroom area, etc was very clean and that eases a lot of... More

I needed a hotel in Mankato on short notice for a business trip and it included several rooms for a group I was with. From the time I booked the rooms until we left the trip went so well thanks in large part to Linda, the hotel's GM, and her staff. They were extremely accommodating to our needs while we... More

My wife and I celebrated our 41st wedding anniversary this past weekend and we chose this property based on other guest reviews. We were completely satisfied with the cleanilness and super comfortable beds. We really appreciated the warm freshly bake chocolate cookies in the early evening. We will definitely stay here again!

Hi Bigdog77, What do they say in Minnesota we have four seasons, Winter, Spring, Road Construction and Fall. Sorry that the construction was difficult to navigate. They have completed the round-a-bouts and traffic seems to be adjusting accordingly. The team was excited to read that you enjoyed your stay and that breakfast, the cookies and Bonfire hit the mark!

Stay in Mankato often and this is my choice hotel. I have stayed at the Country Inn for many years and have no need to switch to another Mankot hotel. Overall the place is great. It could use a makeover as some of the rooms need upgraded to give a cleaner / fresher appearance.

Seemed fine and nothing awful really - just cost too much and the value to cost ratio does not compute. Breakfast items were non existent and feature items took 20-25 minute to replenish. Only 4 other people in breakfast area at the same time we were there. People were nice - but - I don't think one ought to wait... More
