I was in Mankato for business. This is the second time that I stayed in this hotel. The hotel itself is very clean, quiet, and within walking distance to a good variety of restaurants. Check-in and check-out were done very efficiently. All in all, it was a very good hotel experience that was remarkable only in that there was really... More

When checking in they should have all the information available to them. I should not have to tell them that I am a Diamond member. They should know it and treat you like such. Very little upgrades are offered to Diamond members. The argument is that they are sold out. The quality of food at the restaurant Massad is not... More

Great stay, loved that gold status gives you cooked to order breakfast in the restaurant. Travelling for business and will be looking for Garden Inns in the future, over other Hilton Brands. Staff is friendly and check-in is a breeze with the HHonors app. Rooms are large and newly remodeled.

We spent a night there recently and found the room very comfortable and quiet. We were a little concerned because a college football was also staying there that night. We never heard them! Their parking garage won't work for tall vehicles however.

We stayed for two nights in October, and really enjoyed the hotel. The lobby, front desk staff, morning coffee and tea in the lobby, nice breakfast at Olives...everything was great! We will be back next fall for my 50th high school class reunion...and maybe rent the penthouse!

Nice hotel with very good restaurant. 9th floor room was a good size, but noisy heater unit, and poor cleaning by room staff. A few good bars in the area, but not a lot of restaurants unless you drove a bit further afield.

This is really the place to stay. Olives restaurant is incomparable. The pool is fine. Don't expect super big or fun for the kiddies but it was sufficient for mine to have a bit of fun for about an hour. Rooms are great and comfortable. Overall a really nice stay and there probably isn't much else in town to compare... More

Parking is on a ramp adjacent to the motel. Front desk personel made parking explanation very cdnfusing as we were informed that due to a hockey game that night we had to enter at the rear of the parking ramp. (For some reason I don't understand?) This was not the case and we were indeed able to enter that evening... More

We were in a double queen bed room. The room was clean and look nice. However the key piece of furniture in the room was the worst and it was the bed. I would stay here again only if the mattresses were replaced.

I stay at this Hilton at least once a week for work. The desk staff is polite and competent. The room is always very clean--including the bathroom (this is important to me), furnishings are in excellent condition. The rooms are vey quiet. Even the K-cup coffee and tea is good quality.
