We do appreciate the positive remarks for I’m assuming the Best Western in St. Cloud. Hopefully you stayed at our property also on your way through and had as great an experience.

The staff, the room, the bed, all excellent! The best was the pool very clean, up to 6 feet deep could swim in it had a wonderful time there. The pool was the best we have ever experienced in all the motels we have ever stayed at. Just the Best!

Thank-you! As a Best Western we are always making new additions and changes to our hotel to meet the needs of our guests. We have a lot of Design upgrades that we are currently working on that we are very excited about. We hope you will come back and see us again soon so you can enjoy them.

Staff is nice, but rooms are noisy, moldy - musty smell, outdated room, bed was rather hard and pillow too, restaurant is high-priced but food is only OK. Pool area is outdated, musty and cold. A bunch of family stayed here the first night during reunion and everyone switched to Marriott Courtyard for the remaining 4 nights. Marriott is next to mall and there are a lot of things to do and see in that area.

Room Tip: Rooms are noisy - you can hear conversations from hall, adjacent rooms, pounding from above and TV...

There was a Moldy Musty smell in some of the first floor rooms. The eggs at breakfast tasted like nothing. Everyone was helpful and kind, they have a Wonderful Staff!! Moldy vents in the pool area but there are wonderful walking paths half a mile down the road.

Needed a room and some food and this place met both of those needs. The staff was very friendly and the check in was fast. Got to the room it was clean, but a little outdated but it appears they are working on that now. the room had everything I needed. The lounge in the hotel was nice and the chicken wings were great. I will stay here again if I am back in town.

The rooms were dirty, smelled very musty. The decor was old and out dated. Water pressure was okay in the bathroom. The breakfast was good. The resturant staff was nice and friendly. Management was rude. Would not stay again

We booked our stay at the Best Western Plus because of the easy access and great swimming pool for the kids to play in. this hotel is right off of Highway 169 coming into Mankato, so it was easy for everyone to find and get to. The pool area was wonderful with a lot of room for our families to enjoy some time talking and yet allow the little kids to have fun too. There were a lot of tables and area to sit or get up and move around while around the pool. While I was checking in, I had forgotten to tell the front desk clerk, Andrew, of our desire to have all three rooms for our family lose together or adjacent to each other. When I told my wife our room number after I checked in, it was way down the hall from the other two rooms. When I asked Andrew if it were possible to change rooms to one closer to the other two, he was so nice & accommodating about it. Was very impressed by the staff and hotel & would recommend this hotel to any families traveling.Thank you Best Western, this hotel is a feather in your cap!

We want to thank you for choosing to stay with us and giving us the opportunity to provide you with the superior customer service we pride ourselves in. Our staff does try to meet our guests’ requests to be close to each other whenever possible. Sometimes if there are different room types it is difficult but we do our best. Our pool area is a great area to meet and enjoy your stay. Your comments are wonderful and greatly appreciated. We have started some of our design renovations that you will like.
