The owners live in the hotel and are EXTREMELY welcoming and nice. We were always greeted with a smile on their faces! I was a little worried upon walking in the hotel and the overwhelming smell of smoke hit me, but that seems to be an old smell, given the "no smoking" sign hanging in the entrance. There were some...

The rooms are freshly painted and have new curtains and comforters. The rooms are a little tired but the price is right. BIG PROBLEM: I noticed about a dozen bites our first night. During the next night I actually saw a bedbug cruising across the sheets. Never seen one before. Looked like a wood tick. Looked it up online and... More

I am not pleased. The rooms smell awful. The carpet is a mess. When I turned the water on, it came out yellow. The heat wasn't on. It was freezing in our room. There was hair under the sheets that were not ours. I feel dirty being in here. Pay the extra $30 if you can for a decent night... More

Had to reserve a room there for some people that arrived for a visit unexpectantly. They did not have a lot of money and I was skeptical of putting them in the hotel because I didn't know anything about it.. I went to the hotel and asked to see a room before I booked them! The clerk had no issue... More

Just needed a place to stay for a night in the Mankato area. The hotel is nothing fancy but it was the cheapest option in the area and it did the trick. Woman at the desk was incredibly friendly, the room was fine and everything was working correctly. Included cable and internet. I would stay there again.

The hotel lobby looks very nice and updated. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Free breakfast consists of donuts and toast. While the room itself was in desperate need of an update, it was clean. The towels feel like sandpaper and are stained. The bathroom needs repair...peeling paint, corroded fixtures, flooring is coming up, but it was clean.

The building smells of cigarette smoke upon entry. The lobby was decent with a sitting area for breakfast but the breakfast was the absolute bare minimum. The coffee was not good. The room was very dirty. They should fire their cleaners and hire new because there is a total lack of effort. Dirt and dust bunnies in the corners, every... More

Stopped by since I was in town for 1 day or work and thought location would work for me--that was my first mistake! Parking lot was empty but man behind glass window said they were almost full and only had a larger room available so I was stuck with it and later I found he didn't even give me the... More

Dear Guest, Please accept our apologies for all the terrible issues you put up with during your recent stay. From your description, it seems you were accidentally rented a room that was dirty from a previous guest stay. Since that is never the state of a room we would rent. Despite of acknowledging the mistake, our staff was rude to... More

Our family stayed here while attending a weekend event in Mankato. Having read the previous review we were a little apprehensive, but the price was right, so we gave Budget Host a chance. We ended up being very glad that we did. The building is older, but was clean and quiet. We needed two double beds but were given a... More

This motel was terrible! We stayed here only because it was first week of working in town and money was tight. Sign advertises internet, but even upon check-in they fail to inform you that their router is bottom shelf and only picks up right next to it. You have to go to the lobby to use internet where it is... More
