Desk staff was nice, room seemed clean with some updates. I had a room with 2 queen or full sized beds. One bed was really bad. When sitting on the edge it almost went to the floor. The other bed was fine. In the morning (7:30am) I checked out, ate breskfast and left for my bike event. To my surprise... More

On the plus side - the motel was reasonably quiet, the beds were comfortable, there was plenty of hot water, the room had a refrigerator and microwave, the place accepts pets and has a clean, grassy area for exercising dogs. (There is a pet fee.) The toilet was a water-saving dual-flush model. There were no odors in the room, although... More

We stay here a couple times a year. Usually ok. The reason why I gave this review a 2 is because of all the early morning partying and the lack of response by Front Desk staff. The guys next door got in around 2:30 AM Saturday morning (partied a good hour or so) and on Sunday they came back around... More

Family run hotel that is comfortable, no frills, but clean and quiet. Easy to access location. Management is making obvious improvements to rooms. Staff was friendly. I've paid more for a night's stay at similar level hotels, so this one is highly recommended for a low cost stay on your journey.

I was in Mankato for a quick trip to celebrate a wedding anniversary and needed a safe, clean, inexpensive place to stay overnight. The Budget Host more than exceeded my expectations. I had my best night sleep in weeks. The employees were friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and well cared-for with a relatively new TV and bathroom..... More

The room I stayed in was newly renovated throughout, with a brand new fridge & microwave & shower & TV. For the price I paid, I would have expected a much lower quality. But everything was very good...and the young man at the desk was able to direct me to an Indian restaurant.
