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.

The name and the rather high price suggest that the management wants to present the Mankato City Center Hotel as a sophisticated downtown hostelry. Really, now, it's Mankato, and the hotel is a chain motel in just about every respect, from the beds to the tackiest 1970s hallway carpet I've ever seen. Free self-parking isn't in a surface lot but... More

We were in Mankato for the RibFest and Loverboy concert at Vetterstone Amplitheater. We asked for a quiet area of hotel since we are not party people. They put us on top floor (4th). Nice quiet end room that was a king bed. the room was very modern and clean. We were impressed with the updated furniture. They give you... More

We came to town to see the fireworks at the Riverfront Park in Mankato. We wanted a hotel close to that attraction. I'm so glad we picked this one. We got the queen suite for a sweet deal as most people camping on the 4th of July. I just asked if we could get a lower rate and the manager... More

The rooms are fairly nice and include a refrigerator and microwave. the hotel pool area was in remodeling so they are trying to improve the hotel. the hot tub is nice and big but the temperature was luke warm at best. There was no timer for bubbles or a tempurature control. I have been in warmer swimming pools at hotels.... More

I am surprised to see negative reviews. My family has been going here since I was a kid (and the hotel was a Holiday Inn) and I get very nostalgic whenever I come here. Not a lot of changes have been made looks-wise, but it really isn't needed. The pool atmosphere is great because of all the room. The adults... More

Good location for our needs. Updated decorating. Comfortable beds. Did think the room could use a deep cleaning, though. Corner of room was very dusty and full of sunflower seeds, yuk. One of those things that we wish we would not have seen. Other than that it was alright hotel.

I stayed here 2 nights for a business seminar that was held at the adjacent Verizon Center. The central location was great. It is within walking distance of most restaurants and pubs. That is the good. The bad is that this hotel is worn out and dirty. The is no excuse for the dirt. The hallway leading to my room... More

My fiancé and I decided to stay at this hotel because we were going to a concert and the hotel was conveniently connected to the concert venue via skyway. We paid almost $100 for it. The room itself was clean and nice looking and the bed was very comfortable. The only complaint I have with the actual room is there... More
