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. Not only was it steaming hot and beautifully presented, but it had unique flavor and richness that had our whole table talking about how good the food was. The bathrooms were so clean and... 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.

You get to check out at noon! Pool time is 6am-11pm and 11pm-12am for adult only. Breakfast was great! It was raining out and the staff had umbrellas for us...so perfect for the wedding guest and everyone else. And who doesn't love fresh cookies when you walk in the door. Thank you so much for your wonderful service. CK
