“Fabulous Stay”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Would definately recommend this hotel to any one visiting Mankato.We invited our local family to come and use the pool. The children all had a wonderful time. From check in to check out, a perfectly comfortable stay. Service was the best.

I appreciate you taking the time to place a review. However, your review would be for a different Best Western out in South Dakota. We do appreciate all of the motorcycle riders that do come through our area on their way to Sturgis. Hopefully if you stayed with also your stay was just as enjoyable.

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. We are currently redoing our pool area. I think you will like the changes.

Staff is nice, but rooms are noisy, moldy - musty smell, outdated room, bed was rather hard and pillow too, restaurant is high-priced but food is only OK. Pool area is outdated, musty and cold.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 Got to the room it was clean, but a little outdated but it appears they are working on that now.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.
