What a great hotel! Very large room on the 9th floor corner complete with a large deck area with picnic table and chairs Ample seating, large full bathroom, smaller half bathroom, small fridge and microwave, two TVs, good sized desk area with chair Located conveniently near civic center downtown

Easily accessible parking deck connected to hotel Restaurant in the hotel which looked better than the average Hilton Garden fare Definitely hope to stay here again

Room was clean and spacious Need a key to get in everything, elevator, parking ramp, everything It was nice but annoying at the same time

My “key” on my phone failed to let us out of the parking ramp We were on motorcycle It was 88 degrees outside, hotter in the parking ramp I had to walk down the ramp to the hotel to get a physical key Lesson learned Always get a physical key when staying here, just in case

Ethan Campbell

We had an enjoyable stay I loved the location and being able to get a 9th floor room without paying more The constant unlocking of doors and elevators with the cellphone app got old real fast! I was bummed that the bar was closed on a Saturday night

The pool was cold, the hot tub was closed The music in the pool was weird and too loud We had to make 2 requests to get an extra set of bedding for the kids

They’re not a lot of hotel rooms in St Peter Minnesota, but this AmericInn location is a great place if you need an overnight stay while in St Peter The staff was super friendly and super helpful They have a large open area in the front entrance which also serves as a lounge and space where breakfast is served in the morning

The indoor pool was larger than expected and was in greatl condition The rooms were clean and felt like they had been updated in the not too distant past The only reason I didn’t give five stars for the room is the bed could have used a new mattress My wife and I kept getting sucked to the middle of the bed because of the divot there However, everything was clean and tidy, the climate control worked perfectly It’s a great location Would definitely stay here again the next time we need an overnight accommodation in St Peter One piece of advice: as Saint Peter is a college town, and is relatively close to mankato, which is also a college town On weekends with a large family draw, like Parents Weekend, Graduation, etc rooms are going to be hard to come by Plan ahead! This location was sold out on the Friday night that we stayed there I was thankful that we had made our reservations months in advance

We stayed for a couple nights while moving The pricing was good and location was very convenient However, although everything was stocked and seemed relatively clean, we found blood on the bed skirt and a pillow

This made us wonder what was actually clean The switch on one of the lamps was pretty much shot, so it took a couple tries each time to turn it on/off The hot tub also seemed a little dirty as the water was tinted yellow slightly, but that might have been the lighting Our room cards also became deactivated in the middle of our stay, but the staff was helpful and fixed it right away And although we didn’t expect much of a view, our window on the first floor faced the even center, so it was just a wall outside the window The breakfast was also convenient and there seemed to be plenty of options Unfortunately, the beds weren’t too comfy and the pillows were pretty flat and hard, but we understand that when buying for places like this, you buy in bulk and try to get the best prices, so sometimes it’s not the best quality That’s understandable

Jeremy Aufderheide

The accommodations are pretty standard It’s clean but unremarkable The location is great

The channel line-up on the TV is not I’ve stayed a few times before while visiting my family and this time I noticed how good the front desk staff was My key card deactivated (probably because I had it in my pocket with my cell phone) and the woman behind the counter remembered which room I was inshe had been there when I checked in a day earlier but didn’t wait on me And every other person I encountered was cheerful, friendly and helpful Even if the hotel is just a normal hotel, the staff brings it to another level

Meghan Pettis

Doesn’t look the best when you pull up but excellent on the inside! Room, pool and lobby were clean Great, friendly service plus plenty of food and supplies for breakfast Walking distance from fast food and sit down restaurants

Great pool area for hanging out 5 minutes from Rosa Parks if you’re in Mankato for a baseball tournament

The room was spacious and quiet with a comfortable bed and awesome pillows The wall mounted, in-shower shampoo and body wash was a nice touch, and I loved the “master switch” that powered all the lights upon arriving and leaving There was no complimentary breakfast, and the coffee bar in the lobby didn’t open until 7am, which is about two hours late for us early risers

Overall, I’d stay here again

Rachael Meuwissen

The staff here are friendly and welcoming The hotel common areas are clean, as well as the rooms There is a 24 hour fitness room, Guest laundry, pool with whirlpool that’s open from 6 to 11

Adults only for first and last hour There is an on-site bar and bistro Food served until 9 and cocktails until 10 The bistro is also open for breakfast for a fee No free breakfast here You can also purchase Starbucks coffee There is a very nice outdoor courtyard with a fire pit, not open year round Possibly my new favorite Mankato hotel

Dave S

The room was dirty and there was something left on the curtains The shower drained so slowly that there was standing water before it was even warmed up I complained to the front desk and none of these problems were resolved before I left

Also the second floor elevator down button had to be pressed several times before it would register the push

Stayed there with my girlfriend for 2 nights, no break fast (not a big deal but would be nice)Key card didn’t work after the 1st night which was odd, the place was run down and was sketchy The light and bathroom fan hardly worked

For the price you should be getting better but definitely isn’t worth itFelt unsafe

Cae Arlo

Overall, the staff was nice, but the room was not the cleanest I always bring my own sanitizing items when I go to establishments such as this one, but I shouldn’t have to clean my way into my own room My partner and I were also extremely frustrated and disappointed with the quality of the pillows

The pillows had no fluff to them whatsoever It was like laying on a very thin piece of cardboard We almost had to go out and buy our own pillows because we kept struggling with neck pain which then led to shoulder pain and then back pain all from the terrible quality of the pillows

I have been to a lot of hotels and by far this is one of best We didn’t need a pool or breakfast in the morning, so that didn’t matter to us The staff was so friendly and helpful

Melissa at the front was amazing! The room was clean, and beds comfortable We were able to check in early as well There was a bad storm and we didn’t have anywhere to go Hardwood floors in the rooms, and everything was perfect I will definitely be staying here again when we are in town

Tawyna Wagner

I read all the reviews for this place and it wasn’t at all what you typically hear of a Motel 6, and we would be staying here the first night of a two week road trip after driving for 15+ hours No regrets! This place is super clean, super comfortable, and exceeded all my expectations Very simple accommodations but I slept so well that we decided to also spend the last night of the trip here and booked another room

I got the two best nights of sleep during the whole trip here Also, Mankato is a pretty cool town! Definitely would go back

Beccah and Dillin Jensen

This was a wonderful basic little motel! It had everything you needed, no frills, and the staff was incredible!! They clean daily so everything during our week long stay was nice and tidy and clean, they had a mini fridge and microwave for our use It is a motel so if you need a hairdryer or shampoo you gotta ask, and no breakfast, but honestly we didn’t really need that! It was lovely and clean!

Personally, I never really had a good experience here and would not come back to this hotel First of all the workers at the front desk were very very rude specifically the front desk manager named Angie I requested to switch rooms so my older children could be closer to me but she told me she couldn’t switch rooms and when I asked for a refund they told me that I would still have to pay for the room

On top of that the rooms weren’t very good The room had a really strong smell especially in the bathroom like dirty rags The beds weren’t uncomfortable and the shower was very dirty and had a mold around the edges The only good thing was the breakfast

Virginia Lazzu

I will never in my life stay in this or any Fairfield ever! If I could give it zero I would The staff are rude and management is non existent I left a $300 book in my room for school and they did nothing but give attitude and act like they knew nothing on how to look for it and could not locate it

I then am told I have to pay to have it shipped to me They never shipped it and took my card information 10 days later It is still not shipped I call and get the same rude girl and same attitude NEVER IN MY LIFE WILL I EVER STAY IN THESE HOTELS AGAIN

Corey Partin

The staff at the desk were always very nice and helpful, however the management team is extremely rude My company booked a month-long stay for me and I needed my cat to stay with I was never told that they have a “strict” no pet policy (it’s written at the very bottom of the site and on a tiny sign in the corner of the entry)

On the receipt it even said a pet fee had been waived However, one week into my stay two managers came to my room and very rudely said, “either the cat goes or you relocate” They weren’t willing to listen to my case and treated me like a trouble maker They also expected me to react immediately, which was incredibly hard to doOn top of that they also charged me $1800 for the stay instead of my company, a headache I’m still dealing withThis hotel also allows children to run screaming and yelling up and down the halls and for large groups of people to literally tailgate in the parking lot with booming bass at 11pm Their cleaners enter your room even if you ask them not to and they slam doors at all hours of the morning as they cleanOverall the desk staff were great but the rest of my stay was awful I’m leaving early and they’re losing over $1000 of my company’s money I can understand some misunderstandings, but the treatment and experience I had here guarantees I’ll never stay again

Our baseball team spent a weekend here for a tournament in town The staff was very friendly and more than accommodating to everything we asked The hotel was full and this was the first hotel we have every stayed at where the ice machines kept up with the demand (there were 3 others teams staying there as well) Rooms were clean, nice bathrooms, comfy beds and pillows

I would recommend this hotel to anyone Only shortcoming was pool was a bit small yet all the kids enjoyed it


Stayed at the Hotel for a State Baseball Tournament recently and have NO complaintsWe got to the Hotel around 11:00 – as our game time had been pushed up – and we were all pleasantly surprised to hear that our rooms were ready The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable

Every staff member we interacted with at the Hotel was extremely friendly during our stay No issues with Breakfast and check-in/check-out was a breezeWe would not hesitate to stay here again if we were in the area

Tamra Howell

Nice, newer hotel off of Hwy 14 in Mankato The room was a good size with a large bathroom and shower (no tub) The cleanliness of the room and bathroom was impeccable

There is a small on-site bar behind the front desk The breakfast was basic with cold and hot items and good coffee with a nice selection of various flavored creamers and teas A nice older lady was continually cleaning up the breakfast and seating area This hotel could easily carry another hotels branding due to the amenities and cleanliness Highly recommend if staying in the area

One of the most beautiful places I’ve stayed in You have a restroom that has a toilet and sink Then a separate bathing room with a large, deep free standing jacuzzi tub with a shower wand and a separate shower with 2 heads

This also has a sink and heater The bedroom is beautiful with a comfortable bed The three rooms are oversized and opens to a shared balcony outside or a shared parlor inside I could live here!

Nicole Silker

We booked all of the rooms for our wedding weekend and had a great time! Some of our close family stayed with us and we absolutely loved the style/comfort of it! We spent a lot of time in the common area visiting and relaxing after busy days rehearsing and decorating The management was very friendly and accommodating They truly put our comfort above all else!

Not a good experience at all Owners are arrogant, rude If you want a place to come to relax, look elsewhere unless you Caucasian

In a society where equality matters, you’d think the owners wouldn’t discriminate against people of color, but they do Personally heard the wife talking bad about campers on site to an entire group of other campers Keep it classy lady, keep it classy
