Love the pool area. Large pool and hot tub. Arcade, workout room and just space for kids to run around in. Fabulous for pent up children! You can also order food and eat there as they have plenty of tables and chairs. Great location for restaurants and bars. Walking distance to many. Only drawback - the continental breakfast. We skipped...

My room was ok. The bed was very comfortable. The fitness center, unfortunately, smells like you are inside a big rubber basketball and they need to add weights and a bench. It is sparsely equipped with a few cardio machines. Fridge and microwave in room which is very nice. Walmart and many places to eat within 10 minutes driving distance...

They called 2 days before we were to arrive to say they overbooked and could not honor my reservation that was made 2 months prior. We ended up with a room,but it set the tone for an unpleasant experience. The room was mediocre, the bathroom less than clean, bed and pillows uncomfortable, and staff on autopilot. Don't waste your time...

When staying in Mankato we had a very satisfying experience at the City Center Hotel. The reception was friendly and helpful, the room nice and large, the shower and bed terrific, and we enjoyed our stay. Great work guys.

We stayed at the hotel with my son's baseball team. The hotel is in a great location in downtown. It is walking distance to several bars and restaurants. It is just a 5 minute drive to the Minnesota State University campus area. The hotel is older but is clean and I read the rooms were remodeled in 2009. The rooms...

My husband and I stayed here for one night while visiting family and had a pleasant stay. The furnishings seemed recently updated and the bed was very comfortable. The wifi signal was strong in the room and lobby. There are some restaurants and bars nearby, and it's connected to the convention center, so I would say it's also well located.

the room was ready when we arrived which was earlier that we expected. we had pulled a small trailer and was instructed where to park (a bock away), worked just fine. the room was nothing special but served our purpose well as we were there for a convention and were busy most of the time. the bed was not comfortable...

The hotel is a good hotel, clean rooms, pleasant staff but not terribly suited to the business traveler in that they won't charge the card that the reservation was made under. I have stayed at many hotels for business and pleasure where I make the reservation on my Signature card and use my Chase Card at check in for incidentals....

The king room itself was comfortable bed, clean, and quiet-ish. We happened to stay on a Friday night, the same night that a gaggle of prepubescent hockey playing children commandeered the place. They appeared to be as well supervised as one could expect. The children had taken over the hallways and pool area. Whomever was responsible for arranging the pickup...

Last year we vowed never to stay here again. The rooms need cleaning--especially the bathrooms. There is no parking close to hotel elevators and no valet service. Actually, there is a poor ratio of rooms compared to parking spots available. There is parking in an adjoining city ramp but there are limited and vague signs directing you to area hotels,...
