Pros: I don’t know how, but I can not think of a single redeeming quality of this hotel. Maybe the location is good, but there are other hotels within blocks if you like this area.
Cons: My wife and I chose this location to get away from the twin cities for a night and I will say that this was far from the mini vacation we were hoping for. Starting at check in the front desk person said there won’t be parking and then rambled off the names of other parking lots that I could park at. Once we found a place to park we decided to go swimming. We got down to the pool (in literal view and earshot of the front desk), and there were 20 or so young kids running around, diving, screaming, and splashing everywhere. We decided to go swimming in the morning. We went up to our room and realized our room faces the pool. Our room hade a used lint roller paper stuck to the mirror, old food in the fridge, and a used bar of soap sitting in the bathtub. After attempting to plug in our phones to charge we discovered that the only working outlet in the room was in the bathroom. We were then subjected to screaming outside our window until 12:30 am. Upon waking up we went down to the pool area to swim and there are no towels that are clean. I go to ask front desk and she said “well house keeping doesn’t come in until a certain time, so I don’t know if it’s done.” It was 9am how was there no available towels in the hotel. So we ended up going upstairs to leave because checkout was at 11. Waste of money. I did not expect an amazing hotel upon arrival but I was not expecting a 1 star hotel. If you want to swim I’m sure there are other options in Mankato.
3,0 Mediocre
Cons: The hotel staff at front desk was rude and the fact that there was a horrible long line when I checked in took 40minutes to check in
7,0 Good
Cons: Poor selection for breakfast and workout room was pretty slim pickings for equipment.
8,0 Excellent
Pros: I liked the extra pillows on the bed
Cons: When I first checked in I was given a room that had not been cleaned, so I went back down to the front desk and was given a different room, but it was smaller.
3,0 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing
Cons: This hotel was extremely dirty. There was dirt piled in the corner of the elevator, surfaces were sticky, mold in the shower, mud in the hallways, and the pool area looked like a riot went down in there.
1,0 Poor
Pros: I didn't enjoy a single minute in this hotel. The staff was way behind on the bedding so rooms were 3hrs behind check-in time. The only "excuse" the staff gave was "Sorry. The bedding isn't clean yet."
Cons: EVERYTHING! Once getting into our room we found red wine (or blood) stains on the rug and our bedroom lights didn't even work!! After three hours of waiting, we were too tired to even complain. I couldn't wait to check out!
1,0 Poor
Pros: I liked that the hotel was a short walk to the conference center
Cons: The hotel was terrible! We were supposed to be able to check in at three, but had to wait two plus hours because they were behind in the cleaning. When I got to my room the tv did not work and the staff suggested I try to fix it!
3,0 Mediocre
Pros: It was connected to the civic center where we were hosting an event
Cons: Furniture upholstery was cracked, bed was springy/squeaky and uncomfortable, shower didn't drain well (4" of water in tub by end of shower), loud guests in the pool until 1:00am, guy passed out on couch by elevator at 5:45 am. Terrible experience.
6,0 Good
Pros: The rooms were OK and the pools were nice.
Cons: I booked the reservation for two rooms on my card, one for my sister, and was charged for both rooms as I expected. When she checked in they took her card for incidentals but also charged her for the whole room and now have not issued a refund.
5,0 Okay
Pros: Friendly staff, comfortable bed
Cons: Check in time is 3 p.m., but I was not able to get into my room until after 5:30 p.m. as they "did not have enough clean rooms". When I did get in to my room and pulled out the bedside table to plug in my laptop to the wall outlet, it was obvious that it had not been vacuumed recently. Crumbs, bottle tops, etc. between the table and the wall. 3 staffers knocked on my door to make sure I had clean towels. I asked the second knocker about the garbage cans, as there were no plastic liners and I wasn't sure if there should be. "We ran out of garbage bags", she said.

Cons: Needs a lot of maintence-old and worn out.
9,0 Excellent
Pros: The rooms I stayed in 107 and I believe 128 were quiet and clean and the hosts were kind and helpful. I would stay again but I just moved from Fargo to work in North Mankato and because I am very short of money and won’t be paid soon. I am without a place to stay. All I have is my 1997 Car.

4,0 Okay
Pros: Decent location. Aside from the moldy smell, the room was clean.
Cons: Our room had a very strong mold smell to it! It was overwhelming!
6,2 Good
Pros: Very glad that the air conditioning worked like a charm. A nice price for a simple motel room. A quiet stay.
Cons: The place needs some updating, and more attention. I didn't like the shampoo in plastic packets that I couldn't open while in the shower. The vent fans in the bathroom were way too noisy as well. It's also never good to see out of order equipment in the breakfast lobby. Next time I'll spend a little extra and stay somewhere else.
2,0 Mediocre
Pros: The breakfast area was clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Cons: It smelled of mold/mildew. It was dusty (I drew a line in the dust on the base of the t.v. and on the lamp base). The ceiling tiles were budging. Smoke detector wasn't operating. Cobwebs inside and outside the window, complete with spiders. Cords.
3,0 Mediocre
Pros: Nice staff
Cons: Smelt horribly of stale smoke in the hallways. No locks on the outside doors. Shady individuals hanging out all night. No extra lock on the actual room door either. My room smelt of mold and sewer. The carpet and bedding was all very dated and gross.
9,0 Excellent
Pros: Everything!
Cons: Nothing to not like. Staff is friendly and hotel is clean. Very nice.
