We stayed for two nights for a wedding. I felt the value to price I paid was not great. $112 plus tax for a double, $100 for a king. The rooms and hotel to me are more in the $80/night range, but it was convenient for downtown functions. There is a lot of places to grab dinner and drinks in... More

Everything was exceptional in this hotel with a short walk out the back door to find Mettler's entertainment bar & restaurant! They had quality dancers who were friendly & professional and great personalities and story to share after having one of the best rated meals in town! The prices were very reasonable especially for a gentlemen's club! This is a... More

Don't think we will be staying here again. Staff was friendly but not impressed with much else. When we got to our room there was a small hanger still hanging in the bathroom and ice cream in the freezer of our small fridge. The next morning i found a long black hair on top of the towel i took from... More

We spent 3 nights in a spacious suite room. The temperature was hard to regulate. The room was generally noisy as the fan in the bathroom and on the heating/cooling unit was loud. The motor on the refrigerator was extremely loud The beds were comfortable but the linens seemed very old. Hotel access is an issue. The main entrance has... More

My fiance and I are members of their swim club, and we have a blast there. The place also looks really nice and, were I to need a hotel in Mankato, I'd probably try here. If you need a place to swim in Mankato, definitely try here. Parking is free if you don't stay for more than 2 hours. The... More

We stayed two nights for my sons wedding and it fit our needs perfectly. The ease of getting in and out of the parking ramp was very good. The rooms weren't spacious, but comfortable and the amenities were there. The front desk staff are professional and very efficient. We had breakfast every morning and it was as expected, not over...

The rooms are just ok. Definitely not worth more than 35 bucks. The restaurant is dirty. Tables were dirty with smears and gunk underneath. The beverage carafe's even had food stuck to the inside of them. The food was not prepared well, either undercooked or tasted "off". No accomodation was made on bill after bringing these complaints to the attention... More

Very nice hotel with clean comfortable rooms. The check in staff was great with the large crowds around and after me. I would definitely stay again given a chance. The only hitch was the room keys timed out at noon and our conference ended at noon which meant it took an hour to leave the ramp. Hopefully, next year it... More

Stayed here with friends for a concert in Mankato. The beauty of the property is that it is attached to the Verizon Center, so if you want location, location, location, this is where you go. Other than that...don't expect too much. Our checkin went smooth and the front desk staff were very nice. Over all , the pool area looked... More

We stayed here for the Mankato Marathon due to its proximity to the finish line and bus pick up to the starting line. The staff was great and there was no shortage of things to do (or eat) in the downtown area. The hotel facility itself was in need of a serious facelift though. Dim lit hallways, low ceilings, 80s...
