Was kept up with loud parties all evening, noise was finally quieted down around 5 am. Disappointed in my stay at this hotel. So much for a smoke free hotel either, there was people walking through the hallways smoking~ Would never travel here again!

We were in town for a MSU visit and I was very impressed with the beds for comfort I only wish there would have been visible instructions on how to operate the beds like the posting in the bathroom on how to operate the shower. For the price and the comfort I didn't miss the free breakfast like other hotels... More

Love Hilton GI in Mankato. The beds are heavenly and a great foundation for a good night's rest. Olives is an amazing restaurant offering Mediterranean and American options with a full breakfast, lunch menu/buffett, dinner, and bar. Right Across From The Verizon Wireless Center and the heart of Mankato. Don't miss the walking art tour.

When my dad comes to visit, this is the place he always wants to stay. The hotel is very nice and comfortable, the service is great, and he loves the eggs Benedict for breakfast at Olives. The art walk is nearby, there is music in the park every week in June to enjoy right outside the hotel, and there are... More

I would definitely stay again. My husband and I have stayed at this hotel twice a year for the last 3 years and have found if very affordable and nice. A block from downtown. Would definitely recommend hotel to my friends and family.

love the location - attached by skyway to Verizon Wireless Center. Very clean and quiet. Only drawback is breakfast is not free. Bed is very firm mattress. The desk clerk was very positive and helpful. She took interest in making sure my questions were answered. I attended an MSU hockey game and that is why I picked this hotel. Parking... More

We had a marvelous stay, and I'm kind of a freak about cleanliness in hotels. So, that's saying a lot. I was so comfortable and welcomed at the Mankato Hilton. We will stay there again, no doubt. The front desk staff was engaging and helpful, everything was top shelf!

The funny this is that based on the picture of the building I thought it was out in the open and clearly marked, but we drove right by it on Riverfront drive because the entrance is on the opposite side facing away from the river. I had my directions correct but I missed the sign for the hotel. There were... More

First off try to get room facing downtown instead of the highway and rail yard, if you don't like train noises. My room was nice but the heater unit was making alot of noise like they do right before they break. I notified the desk staff on check out. I am not blaming them because many people will not make...

Hilton Garden Inn restaurant and nice room, parking deck made you forget the -15°(F) outside. Very good staff in the restaurant. Plan to stay there on my next trip and also make more use of the workout center that they provided to offset the restaurant!
