Otherwise very nice hotel is a death trap for business travelers needing decent connectivity. "Free" WiFi is slower than ISDN used to be. What are they thinking? To get any sort of decent bandwidth, you have to pay extra.

This place could be a 4 "bubble" if it were not for the housekeeping we encountered. The good - Location is great in downtown Mankato. The parking situation is kind of strange, but if you compare and contrast to, say, Minneapolis, then it's not that big of a deal and it is free & covered - so that's good. The... More

My three friends and I stayed one night and had excellent service. We were well pleased with the accommodations. The room was clean, the pillows were perfect. It was quiet. We didn't hear any noise from other rooms that might have kept us from sleeping.

One of the best stays on the road in years! Outstanding customer service, great pricing, comfortable rooms and a top flight dining experience in Olives! The bar/restaurant experience was high in quality and was priced reasonably. Outstanding overall!

My wife and I stayed here when visiting family over the holidays. It was excellent on every count. Clean, great service (the front desk was A+ all the way), great breakfast, comfortable bed, excellent room and housekeeping. We had a corner room on the river side facing North, and it was perfect for us. No question that we will stay... More

Sleep Number beds were extremely comfortable. It was quiet in our fourth floor room - rooms are quieter on the south side, facing the city and not the railroad tracks. Front desk staff were capable and welcoming. A free breakfast is not offered, but the on-site restaurant offered a delicious breakfast.

The hotel is above average, and is my go to in the area. the rooms are clean although some of the carpet where it meets the bathroom is worn and you can cut your foot.

Excellent hotel - nice amenities, outstanding restaurant, good exercise room, helpful staff and nice location in downtown to other restaurants and social activities. Just a short 10-minute drive up near the mall and other shopping/dining options as well. I've been to this hotel at least 4 times, and have been extremely satisfied each time.

On a recent trip to Mankato for work, I stayed in the Downtown Garden Inn. Differences had mostly to do with it being very large (9 story) and located right in the heart of downtown. They also had a full, named, restaurant in place of the usual hotel kitchen. My room was right over the main drag through downtown on... More
