The hotel itself was nice; however, our room was not cleaned when we left for the day. Used towels were left in the bathroom, new towels weren't replaced, one bed was left unmade, used disposable cups were not thrown out and replaced, and the shampoo and conditioner weren't replaced. The only thing we noticed was done was the garbage cans... More

We stayed there June 14th 2014 for one night. There was to much noise during the night. The curtains would not shut as there was no rail to shut them so our room was lit up like a football field. Whenever the people upstairs had a shower so did we with a leaky ceiling in the bathroom. Wi Fi did... More

Thank you Sara and TJ for accommodating me and my fiancé for the graduation weekend of my son. I am very appreciative. The hotel appears to be in transition with the updating of the rooms, some of the amenities need updating but the spirit of the hotel is alive and vibrant. Breakfast was very good. Close to Minnesota State for... More

I stay at a lot of hotels due to my travel with the airlines. However, I needed to find a place for my parents who needed to stay for six weeks due to medical treatment in Mankato. After searching we settled on the City Center Hotel. My parents were dreading a hotel stay - and especially for six weeks. THEY... More

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.

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.
