This hotel is perfect - great location - near plenty of shopping and restaurants. Granted, Mankato, MN isn't the biggest city in the world, but still - great places to eat and shop within 5 minutes of the hotel. Hotel is located right off the highway which is also nice (traffic noise was not a problem). Place was clean and everything looked well maintained. Internet connection was solid as well. Pool, gym were small but adequate. My only complaint with this hotel (only 3 stories) is the elevator (1). It might be the slowest elevator in MN...though, I can't be sure about that. But seriously, get ready to wait...or take the stairs at the end of the hall...so, park accordingly once you check-in.

Room Tip: Stay on the first floor and avoid the elevator.

This hotel is very new, ideally located and very nice. The hotel staff is very friendly, courteous and knowledgeable about the area restaurants and attractions in Mankato. Our room was located on the 3rd floor. It was very quiet and the room was spacious and nicely decorated. The bed was comfortable. We also had a foldout couch, small refrigerator and microwave. We'd definitely stay here again when in the area.

Just came back from a stay today at this Hotel. In Mankato to visit family. First visit was for a wedding in 2014. I am very impressed at how well kept this place is. Everything was clean and neat. Love the design of the public spaces and the rooms. Staff is friendly, great location, comfortable rooms. I have stayed at a couple of other Hotels in town and this is my favorite. Highly recommend it.

Really enjoyed my 2-night stay on this property during a recent business trip. Hotel is in a very convenient location within easy walking distance of the River Hills Mall. The desk staff was extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating, as were the staff working at the small restaurant within the hotel. Room was immaculately clean with no odors leftover from previous guests, everything worked and I got two incredible nights of sleep. Can't think of a thing that wasn't just right about my stay.

Stayed here 2 nights during the Ryder Cup. The staff is terrific - from the helpful and friendly front desk to the staff working in The Bistro. Clean, quiet, upscale room. The Bistro offers a good variety of food items for breakfast and dinner - not fine dining but good food and it was so convenient not to have to drive anywhere. It's a little pricey, but worth it for me.

Room Tip: My room was on the first floor and it was very quiet.
