“Great Softball Week-end”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We just had a wonderful week-end at the Country Inn & Suites in Mankato, MN. All of the staff was friendly and professional and welcomed us with open arms. The hotel was clean, the complimentary cookies and fruit were delicious, and the towels for the softball players was just the perfect added touch.

Room Tip: The suite rooms are a great value.

The friendly staff was very conscious about making sure every need was met. They were completely booked with a tournament, wedding and grad party and remained calm and helpful. The breakfast was continously well stocked and the staffed smiled through it all.

You get to check out at noon!
Pool time is 6am-11pm and 11pm-12am for adult only.
Breakfast was great!
It was raining out and the staff had umbrellas for us...so perfect for the wedding guest and everyone else.
And who doesn't love fresh cookies when you walk in the door. Thank you so much for your wonderful service. CK

Hi Charity,

I am so glad that you enjoyed our hotel during your visit to Mankato. It looks like our umbrellas on rainy days, fresh baked cookies, check out at noon and our wonderful hot Be Our Guest breakfast really made an impression on you. The team at Country Inn & Suites Mankato work hard to make every stay one that leaves you want to return.

We look forward to your next visit and bring the sunshine if you can!

We were there for a girls softball tournament and they hotel went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. We needed an early breakfast for all our girls so we could make our first game and they had a wonderful hot breakfast for all both Saturday and Sunday.

We booked a block of rooms at this hotel for 2 nights for our baseball team of 11 families. The staff was friendly and accommodating from the first contact and throughout our stay. Rooms were very clean, as were common areas (pool, breakfast room). We enjoyed our stay and I would stay again and recommend to families traveling to the Mankato area.

Room Tip: Top floor for less noise overhead

The team here works hard to make the hotel a great place to stay when you are away from home. I hope the team had a great time and enjoyed the tournament.

We love this Country Inn & Suites. It is the only place we stay in Mankato. It is close to everything - restaurants, a movie theater, and shopping. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. We use adjoining rooms for our family and it works perfect for the seven of us. The rooms are always clean and we appreciate having a fridge.

This time in Mankato we were attending a wedding reception in the hotel's conference center. The wedding dinner and reception were both perfect! We liked that the reception area was convenient to get to, but also secluded enough that the wedding party had privacy. The noise from the reception didn't carry to the hotel rooms, which was nice too.

We all enjoyed the complimentary cookies and breakfast. Breakfast has a good selection of hot and cold foods available. My kids love the hot waffles!

It was a great stay! We will be back again.

Room Tip: If you are traveling with kids and need adjoining rooms, we love the ones at the end of the hall on...

T_Mom-of-5 –

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to complete a TripAdvisor review of your recent stay with us.

Our entire staff is pleased to see that we were able to meet all of your needs while staying with us. We know how frustrating and hectic it can be with attending a wedding reception and are glad to see that our staff was very friendly and accommodating. Who needs any added stress during this special time?

We want you to know that our Events and Sales Team, as well as the Bonfire Team, were very excited to see that the wedding reception and dinner was perfect! Plus, even if you were not able to stay for the entire reception, you could head back to the hotel and head to bed, without any of the added noise from the reception!

Plus, we see that you got to take advantage of our little extras we have to offer in our lobby – 24 hour cookies, coffee and tea! As well as being able to start the day with our expanded HOT breakfast in the morning! What kid wouldn’t love making their own waffle to start the day?!

All in all, it looks like you truly got to experience the “Be Our Guest” atmosphere that Country Inn & Suites have been come to be known by! We do appreciate your comments and look forward to you staying with us again when you travels bring you back to Mankato!

With Gratitude,

Tim J. Jahner | Guest Service Manager – Group Sales

I recently held a District Sales Meeting at the Country Inn and Suites. After conducting research into other similar hotels in the Mankato area we selected this location based on a few key factors: room rates were very favorable and included free breakfast. Also, the meeting room was exactly the right size for our group and there was no extra charge. Other local hotels had higher room rates, few included free breakfast and most charged for the meeting room. The staff was very helpful regarding our meeting needs. On top of it all the lunches we had during our two days were very good and reasonably priced. A good time was had by all!!

Tom K –

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to complete a TripAdvisor review of your recent event with us.

We know all too well how frustrating and time consuming it can be to find a suitable location to host a meeting and pleased that we were the “one stop shop” in the Mankato Area for you! Who can beat not having to leave the meeting location to search out breakfast or even dinner or lunch?

Being able to have the ease of waking up and heading down for our “Be Our Guest” HOT breakfast and not having to rush to eat so you can head over to the meeting location is an excellent way to start the day. Plus, with Bonfire right on property, you have everything you need for lunch, dinner and happy hour!

We want you to know that our Events and Sales staff was thrilled that we were able to meet all your needs while hosting your District Sales Meeting with us and look forward to you using our location again in the future!

With Gratitude,

Tim J. Jahner | Guest Service Manager – Group Sales
