This is one of the best hotels our teams have had the pleasure of staying in for a long period of time, Sep-Nov. for work. Thanks so much to the husband and wife team that owns and runs this facility, so warm, welcoming and just down right generous people. Location is great, free wifi, close to restaurants and overall great... More

The room I stayed in was newly renovated throughout, with a brand new fridge & microwave & shower & TV. For the price I paid, I would have expected a much lower quality. But everything was very good...and the young man at the desk was able to direct me to an Indian restaurant.

I know the title of this review might sound an alarm, but bear with me on this. We needed a room for one night while in Mankato to watch the Oct. 10 Nebraska-Omaha vs. Minnesota State hockey game. I wanted a hotel within walking distance of the arena, but because MSU was playing a home football game -- combined with... More

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
