Hotel is very outdated and not clean. Breakfast was not edible the first morning (including what I think was supposed to be coffee) and the 2nd morning not much better. We were put in a room by the laundry as well as poolside so it was loud from the pool until 11 both nights and then by 7 am we could hear the washers spinning out in the laundry room through our walls, even though there was a hall way between. This hotel is like stepping back in time 30 years and needs to be updated! To top it off; my credit cards was billed for incidentals not once, but twice and the second time was an odd amount of $58.83 so now I have to watch my credit card statement to make sure I get both charges back. Would not recommend this hotel even though the staff was very nice.

We are extremely sorry to hear of your disappointing experience with Mankato City Center Hotel. We apologize for your room being so near the housekeeping facility. Next time please remind us to make sure you are on the other side of the hotel for a quieter stay. We found there was an issue with the coffee and that has been fixed. We are updating the Hotel and rooms constantly trying to get it into a more modern era!

Cons: Pool could be warmer.
Location: Don't go to the Olives restaurant. Very pricey and not enjoyable. Best bet is the Bakers Square restaurant, great meals open late and friendly staff.
Hotel was nice. parking garage under the hotel. Used room key to get in and out up until 5pm, then the gate stays open. Easy checkout just open the gate and put room keys in box. Air conditioner show to cool the room. Pool located in the middle of the hotel . Complimentary breakfast was great. Would stay again.

Hidden Treasure

Pros: Breakfast with fresh food, not like the big box hotels.
We booked these rooms for the Worship team coming to sing last Sunday sight unseen. It turned out to be a great choice! The team said the beds were very comfortable and the rooms were nice. They especially liked the fantastic fresh breakfast that was served. They will be returning to sing again in July and asked to stay at the hotel again, so I definitely is a place worthy of a visit!

Pros: Clean and very quiet.
Cons: Free Breakfast was very sparse.
Location: The downtown location at a very quiet location. I watched several trains go by but did not hear a sound in spite of the tracks right across the stre
I had a very relaxing time. That is all I have to say.
