I travel to Mankato regularly. My preferred Hotel was sold out so i thought I would take a chance on the Holiday Inn Express. I called on the phone and made a reservation without any problem. Upon my arrival there was several people standing in line waiting to be checked in. The person checking us in (AUSTIN) was great... he was able to multi task and handle the guests requests while checking in, PLUS answer several telephone calls at the same time. He never seemed stressed out and I know I would have been under these circumstances... It came my turn in line to check in and it was smooth as could be.
While on the elevator to my room on the top floor a couple other business travelers and I started chatting about the Hotel. They were making comments like "this is no ordinary Holiday Inn Express" Upon entering my spacious room I quickly understood why they were saying what they were.
I am in hotels about 150 nights per year so I am probably a little bit more critical of things, I would have given the hotel a 5 circle rating, but there is room for improvement on the nightstand. I am partially paralyzed and have a CPAP machine. It is very difficult to move the nightstand over to unplug something to plug the CPAP machine into. I would like to recommend getting a lamp with outlets in it or even a strip extension cord similar to what is on the desk in the room. That is my improvement recommendation!
Checkout was also pleasant and Jennifer was very receptive to my and other guests needs.
So if in MAKNATO, do not be afraid to stay at this hotel it is an Excellent Choice and Value!
