My past stays have always been pretty much uneventful. The staff has always been friendly, the rooms quite and clean. The amenities are great and the Continental Breakfast is one of the best. Now I have experienced their customer service first hand after I made a booking error on the internet. I contacted the front desk who in turn gave... More

We have stayed here multiple times and find it very customer friendly, and comfortable. Very convenient, with it being right off of Hwy 169. Beds were fairly comfortable, a bit soft, I prefer a hard mattress, but I'm sure it is great for most. Nice to have a restaurant right on the premises for a nice meal. Great continental breakfast,...

Our room number was 127. The room looked good but I did spot at least a foot long cobweb on the ceiling in the morning while... More

I want to be clear that this isn't about the hotel itself. That was adequate, and I have no complaints about the basics. Well, the lack of handicapped parking spaces was pretty lame. The problem was, I reserved an accessible room and was shocked to see what they gave me. The toilet is free standing. No bars or railing next... More

This wasn't the newest or fanciest motel in Mankato, but it was in a good location, convenient to the route we were traveling. I would stay here again under the same circumstances. The staff were pleasant, the breakfast was good.

We spent an evening here. The front desk attendant Thao was very helpful. He got us a room near the exit so my husband did not have to walk a lot. Later he also found us names of Asian restaurants in the area. The food options in the hotel restaurant may be limited based on the room service menu. Breakfast... More
