My family was in Mankato for my son's baseball tournament. There were numerous baseball and softball tournaments in town the same weekend, in addition to a wedding at the hotel. All of the hotels in town were completely full - and overpriced. The staff wasn't very knowledgeable about the town - we asked for tips on how to get to... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. The hotel was very busy the weekend of your stay with many teams and kids in the hotel. With many kinds in the hotel, the pool area does tend to get loud but our staff does a good job at closing the pool area down and keeping noise levels minimal... More

My family stayed here June 9 - 10, 2012. We arrived really late on Friday, at about 11:30 pm. Check in went very smoothly and quickly. We were given room 351 and it was close to the elevator. After reading reviews about noise I had some concerns however we didn't experience any of those issues. The rooms were nicely appointed.... More

I stayed here for a Elton John concert on 4/22 because it was close to the venue. After reading the reviews I asked for a upper room as the manager told another reviewer that complained about the noise to get a higher room. We did get on the highest floor ( 4th ) room # 471. As soon as I... More

I apologize for the sleepless night you had during your stay with us. Your request when you booked the room was to be on an upper level in the middle of the hotel and that is where your room was. The only other option would have been on the inside on the other side of the hotel We offered to... More

AC did not work, 80 degrees outside. Stayed 3 nights, Saturday night was like 'animal house' . Security was called 3 times, had no control! Had to call police at 3AM. Use hotels 150 to 175 nights a year for business, do not recommend this hotel to anyone. Very, very lousy run property!

I apologize for the issues you experienced Saturday night. We did have some guests who were unwilling to listen to our staff and had to be evicted. That is not a usual occurrence for us and I am working with our security to try to prevent these issues from happening again. We were not aware of the A/C issues you... More

I was placed in a lower corner room which was actually within 6 feet of the turn lane. Room 181. All night long I was startled up from my sleep by what sounded like 18 wheelers coming into my room. NO SLEEP and cranky this morning. THAT ROOM NEEDS TO BE A STORAGE ROOM! Worse yet, I paid for that!

I appologize you did not get a good night sleep while you were here. Unfortunately, we cannot control the traffic outside our building but next time we can put you in a room that is higher up where it would be quieter for you. We have spoke to your company the morning you checked out and made an adjustment to... More
