Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SKOLVikings Lack of towels
My one and only complaint was the lack of towels. More than once we had our room cleaned and when we got back there were no towels left at the room. We were given the same answer they are being cleaned. So we had to wait before we could take showers, until they would bring us new towels. Other than that, the hotel is amazing the property was clean and modern and the amenities were great. The staff was amazing.
If there was no towel issue this property deserves an EXCELLENT rating.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sully76 Houskeeping issues
We had an extended stay and no one came in and straightened up the room. Its a lot of money to pay not to receive housekeeping services. I did not feel satisfied with the explanation or did I feel much would be done about it. Only problem though nice room friendly staff, good location

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fotoman Not your ordinary HEI....Staff goes above and beyond!
I have tried most all of the hotels in Mankato. This place is by far number 1 for the business traveler AND should be listed as number one when doing a google search for Mankato hotels. I once mentioned to the manager and staff that they should move the lamp from the desk which has outlets to the nightstand because i travel with a CPAP machine.. They told me they would note it in my profile and do it...
Well guess what???? my next stay sure enough they had moved it just like they had promised...
Gerald seems to have a knack for hiring friendly, go out of their way employees as every time I have stayed here they have done it! If you have not tried the place... give it a go... you will be sure to be greeted with a smile when you walk in!
PS...the cinnamon rolls in the morning are to die for! YUMMY!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by sconnie50 Nice friendly staff
A nice place. Pet friendly so unless you like dogs in the breakfast area in the morning you should rethink your stay. The person tending to the breakfast area was petting dogs and then tending to the breakfast foods. There are many different conference areas on the first floor and there were people being loud and drinking in these rooms until after midnight on 2 occasions when I was there. Would not recommend staying on the first floor near these rooms.

From the moment we walked into the walnut-paneled lobby we were impressed with the hotel. The rooms are very comfortable, with everything we needed close at hand.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by superstarbetty Great Stay!
We arrived to find out the 4 of us, My husband, two daughters and myself were in a room with a King bed. After some time, it was figured out and we ended up getting a larger room with 2 beds. Bo was very kind and patient through the whole thing and he had phone calls ringing in along with other customers to help. The overall stay was pleseant. The rooms were very quiet and everyone respected each other. The hotel was run very well and if we get a chance, we will stay here again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dboone This hotel is awful
Had to change rooms because sheets had not been changed. New room was flthy. Floor dirty, bathroom sink had not been cleaned, food particles and food smears lefto coffee table.
This was my second try at this hotel. I will never stay here again.
It was awful.
The breakfast was not ready or coffee available until 7 AM one morning.
I let the staff know about the condition of the room, whil I was in thebreakfast area there were several other people complaning.
I am a Platinum member and stay at alot of Holiday Inn Express hotels, they are usually not the same caliber as a Holiday Inn but this one was awful.

Great hotel, enjoyed ourselves. We had a very large group and hung out in big lobby. Great amenities. Staff helpful but a bit crabby. Maybe because it was busy? Our room key only worked one time and then we had to get them to issue a new key each time which was a complete pain. Our room appeared clean althought he toilet had been used and not flushed so that was gross.
Other then that nice hotel Beds were comfy and rooms were spacious.

IHG really does a great job with their Holiday Inn Express locations, and the Mankato location is no exception. The hotel is clean, the staff friendly, and the rooms large and well appointed. I would recommend it to anyone! Thanks for the consistently great service and accommodations.

This building is just off the main hwy, which makes it very accessible. The building is near gas stations, a mall and other retail locations should you need something on the fly. It has a large parking lot. The breakfasts were good & warm. I asked for an dining location near the civic center, and the recommended location was just great. Such local insight was greatly appreciated.

We always stay at Holiday Inn. Fantastic staff and wonderful service/breakfasts and pool area.
This time we had a tub that took a long time to drain. didn't notify staff since we were leaving in morning, but it was a bummer to have that happen since it makes the whole experience feel "dirty".
Would stay again, however, since I'm sure this was an anomoly

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Butter Good value, marginal cleanliness
I always enjoy the HI Express properties. In this case, the fact that I was a Priority Club member was mentioned only in passing, no forms of recognition (i.e. gifts) in that regard as compared to other sites. In addition, our room just wasn't clean. We stayed 2 nights. The same lint, etc. that was on the floor when we got there was still there when we left. Dust/dirt has been building up a long time around the walls. You can do better than this.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by sandrafra disappointing
I always love staying at this hotel and we do often visiting relatives. This Christmas was an unfortunate exception. The room was far from clean, both phones didn't function as we found out to try to call and complain that the hot tub was stone cold. We had gone down late after celebrating Christmas Eve and didn't want to track to the desk in our wet suits, but when we got upstairs at 10:30 we found we couldn't contact the front desk and just wanted to go to bed. No real apology in the morning either, more of an admonishment for not telling them. I know its no fun to work on Christmas, I did it for years, but at least a little common courtesy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by famval98 Nicest Holiday Inn Express yet
I believe this is the nicest Holiday Inn Express I have stayed in yet. I would like an entrance to the parking lot from the west, not just the north. Also real orange juice is better than the machine stuff.

We stayed here over Thanksgiving weekend and were very pleased with the rooms. They were very spacious, nicely decorated and very comfortable. The location was convenient for black Friday shopping and plenty of dining options. I loved opening the window and watching the geese play on the lake. I would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is a bit dated in the rooms but they have made huge efforts to give it a face lift. I will say compared to the many Holiday Inn hotels that have a little age, this one by far is worth the stay. All in all very nice experience for the weekend, wish I had time to enjoy the water park.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TravelingSalesGuy47 Great for Business Travelers
I have stayed at this Holiday Inn Express numerous times since it opened a few years ago and I have always been extremely satisfied. Rooms are spacious and nice with big screen TV's, couches, and refrigerators, all the things that business traveler covets. Beds are comfortable for the most part but some rooms do need the mattress replaced as they have gotten too soft. Overall, this is my favorie Hotel in Southwest Minnesota and should be an award winner. I highly reccomend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tommcd24 Nice, new property with great staff
I've stayed at this property a handful of times since it opened a couple years ago. The rooms are a decent size and have modern amenities and furnishings.
The staff has always been polite, professional and friendly. They have also been accomodating of room requests - we prefer the 2nd floor which can be accessed easily from a stairway in the lobby.
The breakfast has a good assortment of foods including the typical scambled eggs, sausage and pancake machine which is pretty much standard at Holiday Inn Express properties. The food is always fresh and at the proper hot/cold temperatures. The breakfast staff responds quickly to any issues (juice machine empty, etc.# and keeps the food stocked and rotated.
There are a few nice sitting/meeting spaces in the public/lobby areas with tables and chairs, etc. The pool area also has a sufficient number of tables, chair and loungers. I've seen the pool area pretty full before, but never to the extent that people couldn't find a chair to sit on or to keep their towels, etc. off the floor.
The one knock against the property is that for only being about two years old, it is already being neglected in some areas. During my most recent stay, I killed two bugs in our room, one was a small spider, the other an unknown flying bug. It's fall and with cooler temps, bugs are trying to come inside, but proper pest control should prevent most of this. Also on that same stay, we had an issue with the bathroom sink not draining. We didn't notice it until 9:30pm after any maintenance/housekeeping staff was gone for the day. We were offered a change of room, but since we had already unpacked, we opted to have it fixed in the morning, which it was. However, after further looking at the sink, it appeared the clog was likely caused due to food #or vomit?# because it was visible under the sink rim when looking at it from a low angle... very disturbing and evidence of lacking cleaning processes.
Outside the landscaping has weeds growing in some places and some bushes/shrubs are outgrowing their planting bed to the point that a couple were hanging into the parking/roadway. Inside there are already some gouges in some walls and some areas seem to not get cleaned as frequently/thoroughly as they could - lobby stairs #especially in winter), and some areas not visible from the lobby floor, but which can be clearly seen from the second floor "balcony" area.
All in all, one of the better Holiday Inn Express properties I've stayed at, I just hope it doesn't deteriorate due to neglect.
