Family run hotel that is comfortable, no frills, but clean and quiet. Easy to access location. Management is making obvious improvements to rooms. Staff was friendly. I've paid more for a night's stay at similar level hotels, so this one is highly recommended for a low cost stay on your journey.

I was in Mankato for a quick trip to celebrate a wedding anniversary and needed a safe, clean, inexpensive place to stay overnight. The Budget Host more than exceeded my expectations. I had my best night sleep in weeks. The employees were friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and well cared-for with a relatively new TV and bathroom..... More

Even though it's not fancy but it is a nice quite place to stay at. It's wonderful that they allow you to bring your dog in to stay and it not costing an arm and leg better then most places in Mankato. Definitely coming back again

The room I stayed in was newly renovated throughout, with a brand new fridge & microwave & shower & TV. For the price I paid, I would have expected a much lower quality. But everything was very good...and the young man at the desk was able to direct me to an Indian restaurant.

I know the title of this review might sound an alarm, but bear with me on this. We needed a room for one night while in Mankato to watch the Oct. 10 Nebraska-Omaha vs. Minnesota State hockey game.

The owners live in the hotel and are EXTREMELY welcoming and nice. We were always greeted with a smile on their faces! I was a little worried upon walking in the hotel and the overwhelming smell of smoke hit me, but that seems to be an old smell, given the "no smoking" sign hanging in the entrance. There were some...

The rooms are freshly painted and have new curtains and comforters. The rooms are a little tired but the price is right. BIG PROBLEM: I noticed about a dozen bites our first night. During the next night I actually saw a bedbug cruising across the sheets. Never seen one before. Looked like a wood tick. Looked it up online and... More

I am not pleased. The rooms smell awful. The carpet is a mess. When I turned the water on, it came out yellow. The heat wasn't on. It was freezing in our room. There was hair under the sheets that were not ours. I feel dirty being in here. Pay the extra $30 if you can for a decent night... More
