This hotel is very convenient for Mankato proper, as their name City Center suggests. The parking is free for guests and in a parking garage directly below the hotel. Check in went smoothly and we were in our room in good time. We had the king and a view of the street out front, at least through the sliding window.... More

I was not impressed with the staff. They claim to have free wifi but they don't. I ended up using my own data on my phone. I had training I had to do prior to my training which is why I was in town. When I come back this next weekend I won't be staying in the hotel because their... More

I had this hotel from priceline name your own price so I didn't get to see what hotel under after I paid. No refunds so had no choice but to stay here. Close to downtown bars so only perk if you like to drink. Upon check in I requested King Bed and she said she couldn't do that since I... More

Came to Mankato for the Vikings Training Camp. The hotel staff was wonderful, the room was nice and comfortable. There was train tracks and a major road outside of our window, I thought it was going to be an annoyance but you would never know they're there. A lot of restaurants fairly close and the training camp was a 5... More

Hotel is in a great location. Parking was great. Room was clean and comfortable. The reason I thought it is average instead of very good is I had a room overlooking the pool and it was very noisy. Others in my party said they had a hard time regulating the room temperture.

We stayed for two nights for a wedding. I felt the value to price I paid was not great. $112 plus tax for a double, $100 for a king. The rooms and hotel to me are more in the $80/night range, but it was convenient for downtown functions. There is a lot of places to grab dinner and drinks in... More

Everything was exceptional in this hotel with a short walk out the back door to find Mettler's entertainment bar & restaurant! They had quality dancers who were friendly & professional and great personalities and story to share after having one of the best rated meals in town! The prices were very reasonable especially for a gentlemen's club! This is a... More

Don't think we will be staying here again. Staff was friendly but not impressed with much else. When we got to our room there was a small hanger still hanging in the bathroom and ice cream in the freezer of our small fridge. The next morning i found a long black hair on top of the towel i took from... More

We spent 3 nights in a spacious suite room. The temperature was hard to regulate. The room was generally noisy as the fan in the bathroom and on the heating/cooling unit was loud. The motor on the refrigerator was extremely loud The beds were comfortable but the linens seemed very old. Hotel access is an issue. The main entrance has... More

My fiance and I are members of their swim club, and we have a blast there. The place also looks really nice and, were I to need a hotel in Mankato, I'd probably try here. If you need a place to swim in Mankato, definitely try here. Parking is free if you don't stay for more than 2 hours. The... More
