“Great, comfortable stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

We had a great two-night stay at the Holiday Inn Express, Mankato this past weekend. My grandkids enjoyed the pool, and I enjoyed the hot tub! The breakfast is always good and hardy, and the staff was helpful and friendly.

It is a great hotel for all! My children loved the pools. Yes, pools! There is a regular size pool for my bigger kids and a kiddie pool for my young tot. We all enjoyed the yummy breakfast too! There's eggs, sausage, pancakes, cinnamon rolls etc. The location was great for me, the mom, too! Can't beat only blocks from the mall! We will be back! Big thanks to the staff for making the stay so great!

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.

Room Tip: Get the suite if you have more than 3 people. It's well worth it!

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!

Room Tip: Top Floor is a great choice.

Arrived in Mankato late one afternoon and expected to be turned away because we had no reservations, but to our surprise, not only did they have a room, we were upgraded to a much nicer, larger room. Several of the other hotels in town were booked. This HIE appeared to be very new, was beautiful, clean and inviting. Our king room was huge, the bed was wonderful, and the fridge and microwave were bonuses. Staff was great and could not have been more pleasant. We travel to Mankato frequently from Texas and we will never stay anywhere else while there. So pleased to see such high standards as set by HIE in Mankato!

I was just expecting a plain-Jane hotel room when I booked, so I was surprised to find such a nice modern, spacious hotel. Not only was there a leather couch, flat screen tv and luxury bedding but also a small refrigerator and microwave. The bathroom was roomy and included a tub. We didn't have time to use the pool or game room but I suppose a lot of families would find that a bonus. The breakfast set out each morning included hot items like biscuits and gravy, sausage and eggs and hot cinnamon rolls along with standard cold items, juices coffee and milk. Very well done.

We also liked that we could reach our car easily by using the side doors (card access of course). There were plenty of shops and restaurants close by. All in all we felt we got a very good value for our money.

Room Tip: We thought the ground floor rooms were convenient to get to our car and also the breakfast area.
