My family was in Mankato for my son's baseball tournament. There were numerous baseball and softball tournaments in town the same weekend, in addition to a wedding at the hotel. All of the hotels in town were completely full - and overpriced.
The staff wasn't very knowledgeable about the town - we asked for tips on how to get to the fields without running into road closures, as well as for a good place to eat dinner, and nobody at the front desk was able to provide information without looking it up online (which took a while).
Our room faced the pool - I would strongly suggest NOT facing the pool. It was terribly loud until 11:30 pm. The room was cramped but updated. The bathroom sink was tiny. The room was clean, but the common areas could have been better kept up, The elevators were very slow. The pool area was a total mess, but that could have been due to the sheer number of people using it at any given time. Parking was adequate.
