The king room itself was comfortable bed, clean, and quiet-ish. We happened to stay on a Friday night, the same night that a gaggle of prepubescent hockey playing children commandeered the place. They appeared to be as well supervised as one could expect. The children had taken over the hallways and pool area. Whomever was responsible for arranging the pickup... More

Last year we vowed never to stay here again. The rooms need cleaning--especially the bathrooms. There is no parking close to hotel elevators and no valet service. Actually, there is a poor ratio of rooms compared to parking spots available. There is parking in an adjoining city ramp but there are limited and vague signs directing you to area hotels,... More

Stayed here just overnight as we were into town for a collegiate track meet. The hotel was clean and room furnishings were updated and attractive. We didn't use the pool but it appeared to be good size. The 2 amenities we were disappointed in was the lack of a fitness center (sign said it was being updated) and the free... More

We had a great time at the City Center. We walked to Bent River, Midtown Tavern, Olive restaurant, and St. Peter and Paul Church for Mass. We had a great weekend in Mankato. It appears the hotel was renovated about 2000 or so. A little bit dated. Wifi was VERY SLOW. Same as not having any at all. Of greatest... More

This hotel was a pretty big disappointment, and while it was convenient to everything we did in Mankato I would not stay here again if I could avoid it. Let me start with what I did like: The staff was very nice. It was convenient. The room looked like it had recently been upgraded. Here's what I was not pleased... More

My family and I stayed there for a wedding in Sept. Great location close to the center of town. The room was clean but a little cramped. Nice pool great for the kids. The deluxe breakfast was pretty picked over by the time we got down there 8:30. I would stay there again.

Nice hotel for the price! Was a nice room! Decent bed! Liked the breakfast many choices but it also had plenty of room to eat they had the breakfast in the dining room of a restaurant which made for a relaxed breakfast! Good food too! Very nice employees too. Would stay here again!

It is clean, the customer service is good, the breakfast is good, the pool and hot tub are nice, the parking is convenient and free, price is reasonable when compared to others in the area, it easy to access, etc. The only...

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
