We got lost trying to find this hotel because the main road to it is closed under construction. That also makes it difficult to go to nearby stores and restaurants without having to go way out of your way. If you are new to the area keep this in mind. I'm sure the locals can find their way. Otherwise the... More

The staff was courteous and helpful, breakfast was a notch above the usual "Continental" style usually pro vided at hotels. The room was upgraded for us when an error was discovered in the reservation. Top-nothc service and facility all the way around.

The hotel was very updated and we had a quiet room- Room 300. The breakfast was great- alot to choose from. Brandon at the front desk was so friendly. Got there late and stayed only one night so don't know about local attractions.

We attended a wedding June 28, 2014 in the conference center and it was absolutely beautiful. We had the best wedding food I have ever eaten.

Hi SKirby1, Wow! What an incredible compliment! I can't wait to share your review with our partner Bonfire. We tell our bridal couples that no one walks away hungry. Great tip on the room, too. That King Studio is great for families. The pull out sofa allows you the space you need to visit. Safe and Happy travels, Linda Osborne More

We just had a wonderful week-end at the Country Inn & Suites in Mankato, MN. All of the staff was friendly and professional and welcomed us with open arms. The hotel was clean, the complimentary cookies and fruit were delicious, and the towels for the softball players was just the perfect added touch.

The friendly staff was very conscious about making sure every need was met. They were completely booked with a tournament, wedding and grad party and remained calm and helpful. The breakfast was continously well stocked and the staffed smiled through it all.
