“No comparison to Holidome and that's a good thing.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

On previous trips to Manhattan, I have had the great misfortune of staying at the old Holidome. So with great anxiety, I pulled up to the Holiday Inn Manhattan and was very pleasantly surprised with the entire experience. From the first steps into the hotel it was clear this was a significant upgrade in everything except the price.

The service was outstanding, very helpful and polite. The room was very comfortable with all the modern amenities.The atmosphere was pleasant and the food was decent.

The only issue was staying across from campus on a Thursday night before a big KSU football game. It was a little noisy until about 11:30, but then either moved on or died down. I would definitely stay here again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2011

I reviewed this hotel a few years ago and it has not changed too much since then.
This hotel has the best beds I have slept in all year. They are apparently known for their beds. HVAC worked very well although it is a unit in the room so you will hear it. Hallway noise is noticeable but not a problem with earplugs. Still has hip furnishings and they seem to be well-maintained. I saw a guy spraying for bugs in the lobby area when I was there they told me he was not spraying in the rooms. I did not see any bugs at all in the hotel and they did not say what kind of bugs they might be. If I had to guess I would guess ants or roaches given the areas he was spraying - on the ground floor, in the public bathrooms, etc. I would probably still stay at this place again unless someone had evidence of bedbugs in the rooms.

There is a Hoolihans next door they had $6 pitchers of margaritas during happy hour. I was planning on getting 1 margarita but instead I got a pitcher it was cheaper. It came served with a long straw and no glass which I thought was funny. I sent them back for a glass.
They also serve breakfast in the morning for the hotel guests. YOu have to pay for breakfast but it is not so expensive.

The hotel is next to the Kstate campus you can walk to campus from the hotel. Plenty of free parking at the hotel.

Really good location to Manhattan stores/shops and restaurants, only a 10 min walk into Aggieville. Lovely comfortable quiet rooms. Excellent breakfast and lovely terrace to sit outside and try their fab cocktails. Service for breakfast was so slow one day, but they took the whole bill off our table (for 12 of us!) so it made up for it. Bonus of having a pool too, as we had a hot day and ended up having the pool all to ourselves. Great stay and lovely staff.

This is a nice hotel within walking distance of the KSU campus and the Aggieville area. The room was clean and adequately appointed and common areas were simple but attractive. The staff was friendly and helpful. We didn’t eat at the restaurant (there are plenty of nearby choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner), but had a few drinks in the bar and were treated well. I recommend this property if you are visiting Manhattan, particularly considering the alternatives.

I second the review below except we had not one but 2 terrible meals at the adjoining restaurant, Houlihans. Identical experience w/the eggs benedict - basically a hard boiled egg on top. And the hollandaise sauce was....not hollandaise sauce. Not sure that that was. Pool is great, rooms are updated and spacious.

This hotel was fine. It is old but was clean. The restaurant for breakfast was the absolute worst place I have ever eaten. I ordered eggs benedict (which was on the menu). I told the waitress I wanted the eggs soft and runny instead they came out completely overcooked and hard. I sent them back. The second time they came back raw. My husband ordered fried eggs that were so overcooked they were inedible. What kind of breakfast chef can't cook eggs? So my recommendation would be to stay at the hotel but eat breakfast anywhere else!

This is truly a convenient spot if your child is at K-State. It is literally across the street from campus and you can leave your car behind. It has been recently updated and the rooms are plush and comfy. It is very clean. There is breakfast in the restaurant in the morning and the same restaurant is a great spot for a cocktail and appetizer late in the day. They also have a full menu for dinner/room service. As hot as Kansas gets in the summer, this was one of the few Manhattan hotels with an outdoor pool, which was welcome after a 10 hour drive! The pool however, is about the only thing that hasn't been refurbished at the hotel. It has seen it's better days, and they could use a hot tub. Other than that, I LOVE this hotel!
