First of all the hotel was under construction. We wouldn't have noticed had we not been placed on the same floor as the renovations. Check in was quick and the staff friendly. Usually we get a few directions of where the elevator was located and what time breakfast is. We got the run down on breakfast but no directions for... More

Very impressed with the staff from Check-in to Check-out. Gift bags for our hockey players and families. Very good breakfast both mornings. Allowed us to have a late check-out to accommodate our schedule. Close to everything in the Mankato area. Thanks for everything!

Three of us go Christmas shopping every year, for the last 5 or 6 years, we have staying overnight in Mankato at the Fairfield Inn. We actually have been shopping together for over 40 years, but decided we can't take the long days anymore. This has turned out to be such a fun time because we not only get a... More

A first impression can sometimes taint your overall impression. When we walked up to the front door and entered the lobby area we both looked at each other and said oh no! The furniture in the lobby was very worn and appeared dirty. Once in our room things did improve. Our bed was comfortable and the room was adequate. We... More

I was there for a conference and they prepared special "welcome bags" for the guests, a very nice touch that was above and beyond any expectation. The front desk personnel were very friendly even inquiring about dinner and how I was enjoying my conference. The room was clean but not well vacuumed while I was there. I stayed on the... More

My wife and I spent two nights at the Fairfield Inn in Mankato in early October. It was a very adequate place, and the price was reasonable compared to most Fairfield Inns. It is in an area with lots of shopping and lots of places to eat.

There are two main things that I am looking for in a hotel. A clean room and a good night's sleep. While the room here was well cleaned, there was mold in the caulking in the shower. This is some thing that one so often finds in hotels and is so very easily taken care of. There needs to be... More

This past weekend we had a bachelorette party for one of my college friends. The bride was surprised with a welcome gift basket from the hotel staff upon arrival. The hotel was more than accommodating with letting us use their breakfast area for our dinner and games. Mattie and Brandon at the front desk were great!!! They went above and... More

We always appreciate the Marriott chain, and in this case, the Fairfield was exactly what we expected. The location is on the end of town, but surrounded by shopping and restaurant options. Rooms were nice, breakfast was the norm and the beds were very comfy!

I love this hotel, but more than just the hotel, the staff! I want to particularly point out Mary at the front desk.
