We stayed two nights for my sons wedding and it fit our needs perfectly. The ease of getting in and out of the parking ramp was very good. The rooms weren't spacious, but comfortable and the amenities were there. The front desk staff are professional and very efficient. We had breakfast every morning and it was as expected, not over...

The rooms are just ok. Definitely not worth more than 35 bucks. The restaurant is dirty. Tables were dirty with smears and gunk underneath. The beverage carafe's even had food stuck to the inside of them. The food was not prepared well, either undercooked or tasted "off". No accomodation was made on bill after bringing these complaints to the attention... More

Very nice hotel with clean comfortable rooms. The check in staff was great with the large crowds around and after me. I would definitely stay again given a chance. The only hitch was the room keys timed out at noon and our conference ended at noon which meant it took an hour to leave the ramp. Hopefully, next year it... More

Stayed here with friends for a concert in Mankato. The beauty of the property is that it is attached to the Verizon Center, so if you want location, location, location, this is where you go. Other than that...don't expect too much. Our checkin went smooth and the front desk staff were very nice. Over all , the pool area looked... More

We stayed here for the Mankato Marathon due to its proximity to the finish line and bus pick up to the starting line. The staff was great and there was no shortage of things to do (or eat) in the downtown area. The hotel facility itself was in need of a serious facelift though. Dim lit hallways, low ceilings, 80s...

First ..if your planning on doing work during your stay, requiring WiFi, go somewhere else ...the signal is terrible. Our toilet didn't flush without holding down the handle..the heat didn't work..the breakfast was so-so and the hotel is old and not well signed. There was a topless bar right outside the hotel, although you didn't know it was there, it's... More

I actually am still at this hotel as I write this at the end of a three day stay. This is a former Holiday Inn. By definition, it would be a relatively normal, mediocre facility. From a facility standpoint, this is still true. Where it falls down further is in other areas. Housekeepers fail to adequately resupply amenities like shampoo... More

My husband and I stayed there one night for a wedding reception. The room was nice. It was modern. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. It had a fridge and microwave. Bathroom was adequate. The staff at the check-in/check-out desk were great! Very professional and efficient. One concern were cobwebs on the corner of the window sill. Another room... More

When we got to our room we found that there was no comforter on the bed, called front desk and they did eventually get us one. We decided to give the hotel restaurant a try, Ordered the "Rib Eye" special. Food came and steak looked bad, but thought I would give it a try. I was sick for two days.... More

Stayed here for a festival on the river. Perfect location--- near all eateries, bars , attractions. Fun set-up with pool in the middle. Breakfast was good- eggs, sausages, bagels. Little stuffy in the rooms- central air- not a well unit that you can control. So ask for a fan.
