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

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

The non-smoking room smelled bad - like stale smoke. The window curtains had several holes including one that I could put my hand through. This place needs a remodel fast. Other than that, the staff was great, the pool is nice, breakfast was adequate.

There is an outside door close to the room you stayed in and sometimes people will step out that door and smoke and then that smell gets carried into the room through Heat/Air Conditioning unit or if...

First appearance was great, online photos appealing; staff wonderful when checking in; then disappointment set in: room dirty in corners, and in bathroom; lumpy recliner; older scuffed furnishings; cold pool and sauna. Was told upon checking out, the first floor rooms are the newly remodeled, hadn't gotten to second floor. That would have been acceptable if room was spotless, it... More

Stayed here to attend MSU graduation. Hotel is right off Hwy 169 as you enter North Mankato - very easy to find and get to. Rates were a bit higher than normal due to MSU graduation and Northern Sun Conference Softball championship but still a good value. Hotel was clean and the breakfast very good. We had a poolside side... More

We regularly visit relatives in the southern Minnesota area. Best Western provides convenient access and good quality accommodations that meet our requirements. The central location permits us to visit with family at our convenience, and theirs.

We stay at hotels a lot for business and pleasure and usually pick the Best Westerns because they have a great rewards program and are consistently good.
