If you value your sleep, STAY AWAY, this is not the place for you!!! The dirty little secret this place fails to mention is that over half their rooms have large sliding glass doors and overlook the pool area which is filled with screaming pre-pubescent kiddies until 11:00 p.m. When the pool area does finally close, the giggly screaming little...

I stay at alot of hotels, alot. I'm at my 3rd one in 6 days. I'm used to more 4 star hotels so I suppose its not fair of me to compare it to a 4 or 5 star, so it won't. I understand this is an old hotel, and I have to say the rennovations they have made are... More

My parents were in need of a place to stay while my father seeks treatment at a nearby clinic. From the moment we made the phone call to inquire on reserving a room - to the initial tour provided by the manager - to the ongoing care now provided - WE HAVE BEEN SO PLEASED! The room was and remains... More

I would recommend not staying here on a concert night. Drunk, rude, loud people. The walls are paper thin and you can even hear people tapping thier toothbrush. Parking is a nightmare and was told to park across the street until after the crowds move, but to make sure I move my car by 4am. The bathroom still had the... More

We stayed here while in town for a wedding and had no complaints. The hotel is nothing fancy, but the room was clean, the staff was friendly, and our stay was affordable. Plus, a hot tub is always a nice touch.

The location was convenient for the Mankato marathon and the staff seemed very service oriented. We were allowed a 2 pm checkout time for no extra fee which was great. Pool was great for kids. Thanks.

It's right downtown and I love downtown hotels. We got a King Deluxe room with a pullout sofa that my son said was actually not bad for a pull out. I love the hot tub here. So big and roomy and not scalding hot like so many. The swimming pool is very large, too. While it is great to have... More

Stayed here during our yearly trip to Mankato to enjoy the fall colors and relive our youth (we both went to college around here). Our usual hotel was full, as was pretty much everything else due to it being "parents" weekend at MSU Mankato. The room was small, but the a/c worked well, the windows opened! (A rare find in...

I have stayed here twice in 2 years, always around the same dates in March. My husband and I play in the dart tournament that takes place at the Verizon Civic Center and since this hotel is connected it is quite convenient.

Mankato City Center Hotel is a former Holiday Inn. Rooms are small but clean. Stairway smells like a farm yard. We used the conference room which were load when the air system turned on. You could also smell the farm yard when the air moved in the room. Food was excellent. Nice location.
