We have stayed at this hotel once a year for many years now, when we travel to Mankato for softball tournaments. This property is the old school hotel with a very large pool area that provides lots of room to gather between or after the games. We were extremely pleased upon arrival this year to see the remodeling that had... More

Room was clean and comfortable. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was an extra charge labeled "buffet" however not much more than a continental served for free at other hotels. Not worth the price.

Tara, Jessie and Jane were amazing. We were biking riding the TRAM and our hotel in St. Peter fell through. We were without a place to stay. Best western helped us out and went out of their way to make us feel welcome after a very long day! Thank you for a great night and wonderful experience.

I stay at this property every time I have business in Mankato. I also recommend it to my co-workers and they also use it. The hotel is very large with huge parking areas so there is room for all vehicles including trucks. The restaurant is very good with a large selection and fair prices. The lounge is cozy and friendly.... More

Too many families, loud, kids running around. Was not exactly pleasant to have them intruding on our group functions. The AC in the rooms did NOT dehumidify so the rooms are sort of humid and stuffy. The nearby pool was a distraction.

I reserved this hotel based on the reviews on this site... but it was disgusting. The room smelled musty, the carpet and furniture were grimy, the sheets looked slept in, and my friend's bed had black specks under the sheets - those are the prime signs of bed-bugs. Yuck. We were there 5 mins then left. We highly recommend the... More

Pam, I apologize that the room did not meet your needs. I did go and check the room after you left and want to assure you that the room did not have bed bugs and that we did have Pest Control come in and inspect it to confirm that. We do not take those words lightly. The bed had been... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel during our daughters college orientation. The room was clean, the breakfast was good, and the location was near the school. The pool area was huge and had a small arcade, so when we visit her in college it will be the perfect place to bring our son. We will be back!

The room was very clean. The lobby was also clean and was very pretty. The pool area seemed nice, too. Breakfast was good, and I appreciated how they offered both the Star Tribune and the local paper complimentary. The high-speed internet was easy to use.

A wedding in our family brought the whole clan to Mankato for the weekend. We are a rowdy bunch who like to have a few cocktails. The staff at the Best Western was smart enough to put us away from the visiting softball and wrestling teams that were also staying there. Good move! Our two parties never interfered w each... More

Stayed here during a softball tournament. Was in room 183 by door C. Arrived early and wanted to check in early due to weather. Was told my 'assigned' room was "still dirty". Nice to know but perhaps the phrase 'not ready' is better. Was accommodating and got us in. The room was clean and well put together. Bed and pillows... More
