This hotel is the best! The restaurant is fantastic, and the hotel staff is great. The gym is quite a bit better than what you typically see in a hotel. Location is pretty good right by the river. I would recommend it to anyone looking to stay in Mankato, MN.

Check in was quick and efficient, but parking and getting to our room was a nightmare. We were instructed to park in the parking garage on the third floor . . . Most of the parking on the third floor is reserved for government vehicles. By the time we finally found an available spot, we were quite a ways from... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We understand that the parking ramp can be a little confusing but we do try our best to explain it to our guests when they arrive and of course are always open to questions and feedback. We are also working on getting new signage for the parking ramp that would... More

Go for desserts in Olive's and see Shane (the bartender) for best Big Ginger. The beds will change your life. Will seem very hard at first but then creates a cocoon around you. Make sure to read the staffs name badges. They all have nicknames with fun stories

I've been staying here on a regular basis for almost 8 years. At one point, it was almost my home away from home. After a year's absence, I had the opportunity to stay again during the July 4th weekend to visit with family. Kaylene, the guest service representative was great. I appreciated her welcoming smile, customer service and can-do attitude.... More

I currently travel about 96% of the year and 95% of the time I stay with the Hilton Brand. This property holds up to the quality I expect staying with the Hilton Family. Every staff member that I encountered had a smile and there were willing to go out of their way to make the stay more comfortable. Great property,... More

We stayed at this HGI due to a family medical issue. We had asked for a handicap room, which we received. The room had two queen beds but obviously had not been checked recently because everything had a layer of dust on it and there was someone else's long hair remains on the air-conditioning unit. The paper left to write... More

We rode our tandem bike 95 miles to this hotel. We were allowed to take our bike to our room, which was clean, quiet, and very comfortable. We had dinner and breakfast in Olives, the onsite restaurant, and the staff and food were really great. Overall a great experience at a great price.
