We stayed there, towards the end of their renovation - the outside of the building still needed completion. The inside was lovely: spacious, clean, and quiet. One of our rooms was just down a short hall from the (very large and crowded) pool area and no noise spilled over. The rooms were also very quiet, despite the large number of... More

The hotel parking area is under some re-model so it was a little noisy in the morning, but that is the only negative I have. The room was decent, the fitness center was fantastic and the Coffee was good. I give it a B+!

Don't get me wrong the room/hotel and staff was great!! The thing that made my stay terrible was the parents that brought their children to the hotel and left them unattended all night while they were off doing their New Years partying!!! The kids were running up and down the halls upstairs and downstairs screaming at each other from the... More

I stayed here on a two night trip to Mankato for work. The check-in process went smoothly and the room was great. I had a king room on the first floor near the back of the hotel. The room was great and the free breakfast was too. They had a pancake machine that made pancakes I would actually eat! They... More

we arrived late, the front desk was friendly.. When we walked to our room which was on ground floor the chlorine smell from the pool was very strong. We had a little trouble with our key working each time. The room was comfortable but a little dated. We used the pool which was good and the hot tub.. Breakfast was... More

Very poor front desk staff. No customer service. No lotion (which is needed especially for any motel having a pool. ) When I asked the front desk if they had any lotion my inquiry was met only with a gruff and impolite"NO"!

Rooms here were obviously recently upgraded, and were pleasant with flatscreen, microwave, fridge. Heat/AC in both our rooms were very noisy (see below) Oddly, though a BW Plus the bath didn't include a lotion -- just shampoo, soap and conditioner. Breakfast was fine, with real scrambled eggs, though the dining area looked like a temporary setup around their enclosed pool... More

We booked this hotel as it was one of the only ones available in Mankato for Family Weekend at the college. For starters....it was hard to determine where the lobby was from the outside. Our room was ok, but the heater/ac didn't really work that great. The pool/pool area....well the a/c was on and it was freezing. The pool was... More

We appreciate hearing your thoughts regarding your stay. We understand your concern about where to enter the hotel. We are in the process of refurbishing the outside of our hotel and will be taking the sign that says “Best Webster’s” (which is the name of our restaurant) off of the drive up area because it does tend to distort people....

Our daughter and son in law had their wedding reception here following the ceremony at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter. Nice sized space for the reception - plenty of room for dancing, plus set up for comfortable seating for 200. Buffet dinner was very good. They had a poolside social hour prior to the reception, and there was ample... More

Where the heck is the entrance? There’s a restaurant on the ground floor of the same building. Someone’s clever use of the hotel’s names in the restaurant’s name – and the absence of the hotel’s name at what looks like a hotel entrance, made us drive around the entire building in search. Once inside, it appeared the staff was mostly... More
