We were in town for a family event Fri/Sat. Check in was easy, room was on 2nd not 3rd floor as requested. They noted they were full. Room was acceptable until I attempted to use the Wi Fi and discovered single bar service in the room. Went to front desk and could get very slow, 3 bar service. Desk could do nothing and indicated again they were full. TGI Fridays, one of the highest rated Mankato restaurants had been located next to the Country Inn. Apparently they closed on Tuesday. We had to go in search of a location for dinner. Returned later in the evening to attempt some work, again minimal and extremely slow wifi. Hall very noisy until 10pm. Thank fully things did become relatively quiet at 10:30.
6am we were awakened by kids racing through the halls and slamming doors. Hall floors appear to be wood. Thus noise really carries. There was little chance to sleep after that. The breakfast did not include any eggs, bacon or sausage. The offerings were high carb biscuits and gravy, oatmeal and waffles.
We choose to cancel our second night stay and returned home after the event finished on Sat evening.
This stay and these problem have not been encountered at other Country Inns, but we are very disappointed and believe this property is badly overrated.
