4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

Just spent the weekend here with a large group. Loved the pool area and poolside rooms. Beds were small but it was great for our large group. The kids were able to ply together in the pool area while the parents hungout and talk. The pool area is big and not the normal hot eye burning area that many other hotels are. The restaurant was ok but the cocktail area was great. Breakfast was awesome. Well worth it. The only thing I didn't like was the double beds instead of queens and a small amount of ants in the corner of the bathroom.

I appreciate your comments about our large indoor heated pool and pool area. It does layout nicely so that families can visit while others enjoy the pool. We are currently working on a design plan to continue to improve our property to meet our guest’s needs. We are almost complete with painting all our guest rooms and will be starting on the other projects following that. So you will be seeing some exciting changes starting to take place soon. As always we pride ourselves in providing a clean hotel. We look forward to having your group stay with us again.

Thank-you,

For the past 8 years our families have met and stayed there a three day weekend for our "family Christmas get together". The staff and management have been most helpful and accomodating to our needs.We usualy are about 35 people and anything we have wanted or needed, they have graciously provided for us. We appreciate them and their facility!

Priceline definately needs to review the quality level of this hotel. Once you get past the claim of the biggest indoor pool in Mankato, this hotel is very average. The rooms were clean and the ac/heating unit did a great job of keeping the room comfortable. My biggest disapointment was the lack of hot water for the shower...it was warm at best and I froze taking a shower. The hallways in the hotel go on forever...it appears the hotel was added onto several times.

I apologize that you experienced a lack of hot water when you stayed at our property. That is not common. I can assure you that our maintenance has been notified. We are a two level property so we do have ½ of our rooms on first floor. Our guests like that because they can park their cars closer to their rooms because of our multiple entrances but it does give some longer halls. Your positive comments on cleanliness are appreciated. Our staff strives to provide a clean environment for our guests. Please give us another opportunity to provide you with a quality stay. You input is appreciated.

This place is good. Used a corporate card and got a good rate. Good pool, spa, sauna. Very small workout center but they had a great breakfast. Sausage, eggs along with the regular things like cereal, toast and waffels. Easy to find, restraunt in the motel and several close by. I would stay here again when I come back this way.

Our staff works very hard to provide a quality product and service to our guests. It is so enjoyable to share comments like yours with them. We have just ordered a new top of the line elliptical which should be here soon. We can’t wait for it to get here. Please visit our property again and try it out.

Outstanding service by all staff at this Best Western Plus Hotel & Restaurant. Great value for the money. Close to downtown, mall, parks and colleges. This hotel is upper midscale and excels in keeping clean all areas especially the lobby, restaurant, bar, breakfast area, pool and surrounding area in addition to the rooms. The hotel manager Arlene H. does an outstanding
job in making this a first rate place to stay.

Room Tip: Many options available including pool-side and combinations of double, single queen to king beds.
