Love the pool area. Large pool and hot tub. Arcade, workout room and just space for kids to run around in. Fabulous for pent up children! You can also order food and eat there as they have plenty of tables and chairs. Great location for restaurants and bars. Walking distance to many. Only drawback - the continental breakfast. We skipped... More

My room was ok. The bed was very comfortable. The fitness center, unfortunately, smells like you are inside a big rubber basketball and they need to add weights and a bench. It is sparsely equipped with a few cardio machines. Fridge and microwave in room which is very nice. Walmart and many places to eat within 10 minutes driving distance... More

When staying in Mankato we had a very satisfying experience at the City Center Hotel. The reception was friendly and helpful, the room nice and large, the shower and bed terrific, and we enjoyed our stay. Great work guys.

We stayed at the hotel with my son's baseball team. The hotel is in a great location in downtown. It is walking distance to several bars and restaurants. It is just a 5 minute drive to the Minnesota State University campus area. The hotel is older but is clean and I read the rooms were remodeled in 2009. The rooms... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night while visiting family and had a pleasant stay. The furnishings seemed recently updated and the bed was very comfortable. The wifi signal was strong in the room and lobby. There are some restaurants and bars nearby, and it's connected to the convention center, so I would say it's also well located.

The hotel is a good hotel, clean rooms, pleasant staff but not terribly suited to the business traveler in that they won't charge the card that the reservation was made under. I have stayed at many hotels for business and pleasure where I make the reservation on my Signature card and use my Chase Card at check in for incidentals.... More

The king room itself was comfortable bed, clean, and quiet-ish. We happened to stay on a Friday night, the same night that a gaggle of prepubescent hockey playing children commandeered the place. They appeared to be as well supervised as one could expect. The children had taken over the hallways and pool area. Whomever was responsible for arranging the pickup... More

Last year we vowed never to stay here again. The rooms need cleaning--especially the bathrooms. There is no parking close to hotel elevators and no valet service. Actually, there is a poor ratio of rooms compared to parking spots available. There is parking in an adjoining city ramp but there are limited and vague signs directing you to area hotels,... More

Stayed here just overnight as we were into town for a collegiate track meet. The hotel was clean and room furnishings were updated and attractive. We didn't use the pool but it appeared to be good size. The 2 amenities we were disappointed in was the lack of a fitness center (sign said it was being updated) and the free... More

Hi! I'm sorry to hear that your stay was made less-than-idea due to our renovations! Since you stayed with us, we have indeed reopened our fitness center and updated our WiFi to blazing superspeed. We are continuing renovations, but, for the time being, on a smaller, less guest-stay impacting level. We would love to have you stay with us again... More
