“Great VALUE for business travel”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

Stayed here on my last business trip b/c Mankato was a great place to meet clients versus small town MN locations. The City Center hotel was a great value and I would stay here over and over again. Literally was almost half the cost of most hotels in cities the size of Mankato and the rooms were clean, staff friendly, and free parking. Also, got tons of coupons for buy one get one drinks in the bar, free breakfast voucher, etc. Highly recommend for business travel.

Stayed October 2011, traveled on business

Good location if you are attending events at the civic ctr. Has a nice pool and big jacuzzi though the jets were not working....also have ping pong! The rooms and linens and TV's appear to be recently renovated and were much nicer than expected and included a fridge......except the bath rooms could use some updating. The price was a bit higher than expected but it was a weekend. The walls are a little thin.

This place is a bit tired but it was inexpensive and clean and close to some good dining places. We had a room that faced the pool and reception area and the crowd was a little noisy but that ended about 7:00. Parking is below the building and the room had a microwave, fridge and free wireless. Our only complaint was the free continental breakfast... It was in a dimly-lit room and it was poorly organized and presented. I think the selection and quality was the worst of any hotel continental breakfast ever. If we had stayed another night we would have gone out to eat.

Room Tip: Good especially for families on a budget.

Stayed in this hotel because a family member had their wedding reception here. The reception facilities were beautiful-- I've been to a lot of weddings and they really had a great set up and decorations here. The staff were very friendly at the hotel, with the reservation process and check-in. We had adjoining rooms and they were very helpful with that process, even though I called multiple times to change/adjust the reservation! Pet friendly hotel but didn't hear/see/smell any animals. Nice pool area, large hot tub that wasn't too hot. Underground parking. Impressed.

Nice pool and lobby area. Clean rooms. Frig and micro in new condition. Beds and pillows comfy! The only negative was the parking garage. Run down and really stinky, but I don't think our car minded. Hallways along room were a little noisy with kids but I blame their parents, not hotel. Overall, nice place to stay for college visit to Minnesota State.

You are paying for location as I think this hotel is overpriced. Room wasn't bad. nice comfy bed. microwave and fridge. I live in area so was just staying for a romantic night. Free parking. nice size pool and hot tub. TV is flat screen but cable kepts putting lines on tv and that was clearly annoying. Asked about late check out since the guest number was SMALL and front desk had to call housekeeping to see but they denied it. One hour and they said NO. That was really annoying. I have a friend who use to work for housekeeping so I know how horrible the managment in the housekeeping department is-but thats a whole different story. Anyways upon checking out a big black beetle was in the room..gross so i left it in the bathroom under a cup for housekeeping to take car of. Def not worth $100 a night here but gets the job done if you are visiting or going to civic center or to the bars. I will try hilton next time.

oh the bartender in lounge was nice! you get a coupon for b1g1 free drink. continental breakfast is simple. no eggs or meat.

Room Tip: poolside or cityview

Thank you for taking the time to fill out a review. If we can, we try to accommodate late checkout requests. The front desk communicates well with housekeeping to honor as many late checkout requests as possible. I do not know why in your case we could not honor your request but I am thinking it may be because several late checkouts had already been honored. As of October, 2011, we have a new executive housekeeper and we have made necessary changes to that department. Unfortunately, the summer brings bugs so no matter where you stay you may find a bug. We have a pest control company do monthly preventative maintenance for bugs to prevent it the best we can.
