Kerry S,

Hosting a meeting can all too well be very stressful, so we want to make sure that that stress can be left behind in the office. Having a friendly and helpful staff makes that happen and we are pleased that our staff was able to make your meeting a success!

From our Sales Team to our Guest Service Staff, we are so happy that all the attendees were able to enjoy their stay with us! We look forward to many more visits to our location in the future!

Wishing you safe travels,

Tim Jahner, Guest Service Manager

Linda H,

We love that you continue to stay with us each and every time that you visit the Mankato area! Our staff works so hard to make sure everyone feels right at home and from what we can see, they truly do! The little things as making sure you have a clean room, to sending you off each and every morning with our “Be Our Guest” breakfast! We are so happy that your travels keep bringing you back to the area and we cannot wait to see you soon!

Wishing you safe travels,

I will "highlight" what I liked about "The Country Inn" in Mankato, MN:
*A wide range of breakfast foods!
*All staff during my stay were friendly and helpful!
*The room was comfortable and accommodating!
*The other guests were polite!
*Pool and whirlpool were great!
*Coffee, cookies, mints and apples/oranges were available at all times for guests!
*Bonfire's (restaurant) was attached to the hotel!
I would definitely go back again!

Dorothy A,

Wow! What you highlighted about our hotel is just astonishing! Our staff works so hard to make sure each and every guest is truly able to enjoy their time with us. From our breakfast in the morning to the guest rooms, we want you to feel right at home. We are so happy that you were able to enjoy our pool area and our complimentary cookies and coffee in the lobby.

Lastly, we are very happy that you enjoyed Bonfire! They are still fairly new to the Mankato area and we are blessed to have them attached to our location! This way, after a long day of traveling, you don’t have to venture too far to get a wonderful meal!

We so cannot wait to see you the next time you are back in the Mankato Area!

Wishing you safe travels,

Tim Jahner, Guest Service Manager

Stayed at the Country Inn & Suites in Mankato, MN for 4 nights last week. The hotel is in a good location close to highways and shopping. The hotel is clean but getting a bit tired and the rooms are clean. Staff are friendly and helpful. Free Breakfast is included which is average but hey.....it's free.

I stay here about 3 times a year on business and you really can't beat the value.

Room Tip: Rooms facing away from front parking lot are quieter.

I am a professional travels frequently for work all over the country. I am frequently in Mankato mn and have had nothing but fantastic personal service from the entire staff including Karry, Donna, Robyn and Tim. I feel totally at home here and am treated like a valued guest. There are many hotels and many choices as frequent travelers however my preference and recommendations to friends and colleagues is the country inn and suites Mankato. Thanks for your hard work and excellent service!!

We have used the Country Inn for the past several years for meetings and various events. Karry Meyer and the staff have always gone out of their way to make everything run perfectly. They always remember what we like for breakfast and lunch--even remember the typical "count" we have for attendees! Excellent food, hotel rooms and location ---which makes this the perfect place for any event!

We want to thank you for your kind comments regarding our Sales Team! The little touches that they remember, like the typical “count” of your attendees, does make the difference when hosting an event at any location! We are so pleased that our catering team has been able to impress you with the food and our hotel staff has been able to make you feel welcome in a comfortable clean room while staying with us. This is truly what we mean by “Be Our Guest!” We look forward to assisting you in the future with many more events at our location!
