Motel is nice stay with a good breakfast served in the morning. The pool area and game room is good for the kids. The biggest drawback I saw is watching a couple of different kids wipe out on the slippery pool tiles by the pool. When it is wet it is very dangerous and one of the kids cracked their...

In town for my Class Reunion we spent three nights in this property. Quite impressive compared to most HI Expresses. It was as nice as some larger, more expensive hotels. The rooms were spacious and well appointed with comfortable beds and up to date furniture. The public areas were well kept. The pool was nice size, and the fitness room...

Loved everything about it and the management was above helpful. The only thing I would change is put mats down around the pool. Extremely slippery. I almost slipped into the pool. The breakfast was above what we expect at a hotel.

This is a very nice Express I am a Spire Elite member and stay in a IHG property 1 time a week minimum. The only reason it did not get 4 or 5 stars is the Hot Tub was COLD! I seriously bath my 9 month old son in warmer water than this and I am not exaggerating. The desk...

We had a wonderful 2 night stay here, except for one glitch. On Friday evening 1/6/2017 we had just returned from the pool area with our grandchildren when the smoke alarms started going off...on the entire floor. Thinking there was probably a fire somewhere we all hurried to get dressed with wet hair and thought we would have to evacuate...

It's a typical holiday inn express but the staff are very friendly and helpful here. There are a few good restaurants in walking distance and the staff will advise you on restaurants in the area. They serve the typical holiday inn breakfast but the lady working is quick to make sure everything is fresh. Highly recommend this hotel.

I have stayed here a number of times and it is just average. I thought price was high for Mankato but rooms were in demand. Breakfast was normal Holiday Inn Express. If regular Holiday customer will be satisfied. We had our meeting at the Courtyard Marriott just up the street and will try them in future.
