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. I travel for business and stay in a lot of hotels all over the country from big cities to small towns, and I have never encountered a front desk employee as helpful, courteous and friendly as Mary....

I don't think you could find a nicer place to stay in Mankato. Our room was very nice, the staff was fabulous, and the breakfast was great! I got to have fruit at breakfast, one of my favorite things. They provide a free newspaper, too, so you can find what's going on in town while you're there. Thank you for... More

A typical Fairfield Inn close to the highway that is perfect if you are looking for a reasonable room for the night. I had stayed there for a longer duration and have since found better hotels that fit my personal needs better. Just a personal perspective more than a hotel quality issue.

We were in town one night for a wedding. I needed to check in early because we had bridal party pictures at 3 pm. Although they could not guarantee in advance, I was able to check in early, and it only took about 2 minutes to check in which was key because we were down to the wire. Free breakfast... More

We have stayed here many times and always feel very welcome and appreciated. Recently we couldn't make it because of an unexpected and emergency surgery. Not only did they NOT charge us even though they could have, the staff sent a personal get well card.

The staff were really awesome but they renovated the pool area and took out the hot tub! Who does that in Minnesota? There is still a pool, but no hot tub. Breakfast was good and the beds were fine but if you are looking to soak in a hot tub at the end of the day, this place is not... More

We were just traveling through and found this motel in a good location and a reasonable price. A good continental breakfast is always a good draw for us as it helps with expenses if you are traveling on a budget. Room was clean and comfortable. Check in was easy as was check out. Staff was friendly and helpful.
