The Hilton Garden Inn in downtown Mankato is likely one of the nicest in this city of 40,000 people and is centrally located on the downtown Civic Centre Plaza. One generally arrives off of Riverfront Drive but the entrance is off street and the signage for said entrance is not easy to spot when navigating a strange place. Furthermore, when... More

For paying $169 for a room I thought was high, especially on a Wednesday night. The room was very clean, beds super comfy! The location next to Verizon Center was great!!! The layout was a bit confusing getting from the parking garage to the rooms however. The breakfast was fantastic but again, no freebees there, (not included) and for that... More

The room was great, the hotel is within walking distance of restaurants and the Verizon Center. We very much enjoyed our stay due to the friendly service and clean room conditions. We would definitely use this hotel again.

I enjoyed my stay at the Hilton Garden Inn Mankato. The rooms were clean and I found the adjustable beds a good feature for mattress adjustment. The staff was courteous and very helpful for directions to things to do in Mankato. The restaurant in the lobby, Olives was very good and the martini's were great! Breakfast was also very nice....

Great customer service, nice restaurant! This location was good for the business I was there to attend to and also close to other restaurants and stores as well. Staff was pleasant and Keurig maker in the room was awesome!

Great stay for business. Parking was convenient and free. Location was right in the middle of downtown easy walk to many restaurants and attractions. The fitness center was amazing with modern equipment. My room was quiet and comfortable. I will stay there again.

Great place to stay in Mankato, especially if you are taking in an event at the Civic Center - no outside walking. The hotel accomodations were Very good, bar scene at night was fun - good bartenders, and checkout wasn't until noon. All good, will stay there again.

If you're going to Mankato, and are looking for something centrally-located (especially to its downtown area), this is the best place there is. And, for what you get, it costs a lot less than you'd probably expect to stay at a Hilton.

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
