We were in Mankato for a funeral and so I started looking around for a hotel close to the church. After speaking with members of the family, they said that they were staying at this location. We were given a great rate and the staff was very helpful right from the start over the phone. It didn't end when we arrived either. The hotel is conveniently located just off the three most important locations in Mankato- the River Hills Mall, Hwy 14 and Madison Ave. It is also next door to Applebees and across the street from Fun City and Hy-Vee. When we got inside, Austin the front desk man was helpful and quick with the check-in process. He even put someone on hold that had just called the front desk to expedite our check-in. We had a suite and the room was gigantic. We had two queen beds and a sleeper sofa. We also had a big screen TV, a "wetbar", and much more. I noticed in the non-suite rooms that the television was significantly smaller. Outside of the room, the pool and hot tub were great. It was a bit loud in there with the large amount of people in there, but the staff was keeping up with new towels and picking up the place. The HUGE hot tub was great. I can't stand going to a hotel and sharing a 5 seat hot tub with 20 people and kids. This hot tub was about as big as a normal hotel pool. Well done, Holiday Inn Mankato! In the morning, the continental breakfast was impressive. The staff was cleaning, stocking, and just keeping up with the onslaught of customers. They had hot food including eggs, biscuits and gravy, sausage, pancakes, and those great Holiday Inn cinnamon rolls. I would highly recommend this hotel.
