The hotel was fabulous and the beds are great. You get to choice the level of your bed firmness. It's great for couples who just want a get away with olives being just on the first level and the movie theater right down the street.

The staff at the Hilton Garden Inn in Mankato were amazing. They were friendly, courteous, and extremely helpful, striving to make our stay memorable. My son also loved the pool. Although smaller, it was clean, and the water did not have the over-chlorinated smell you often find in hotels. All-in-all, our stay was fabulous!

If you do this hotel will be your favorite place but I don't... The smell was overpowering on the 8th floor where I stayed. Not a word from the management, not a note the next day, not an apology. I am a hilton Honor member and stay at hiltons any chance I have and this hotel in addition is old...

We would like to offer our apologies to you for the inconvenience with the smell created when one of our guests "overmicrowaved" a leftover piece of fish from their dinner in Olives. We had the staff up on the floor immediately to try to remedy the situation, but I also apologize for not reaching out to you to offer my...

The hotel was clean and friendly when we arrived. We accidentally were given an occupied room at first (my daughter opened the door to a man getting out of the shower). When we went back to the desk they were apologetic, understanding and accommodating. We were immediately upgraded. Problem solved. The kids loved the space and pool.

I want to sincerely apologize for the experience you encountered. It is of course concerning to me that the supplies were not stocked, and I am sorry for that inconvenience. As far as the fan, we are supplied by outside air and are vented as such, so our rooms are not equipped with fans. Our beds are adjustable, and we...

It is a very nice hotel. The staff is courteous and helpful. The rooms are neat and clean. Olives is a good place to eat. We celebrated Mother's Day with my almost 90 year old mother. We would stay there again.

Restaurants and bars all within a few blocks. Start the party! Very nice accommodations and the restaurant inside (Olives) has a great breakfast buffet for the money. But if you use the elevator, it is the slowest I have been in!

We were visiting customers in the area and stayed here for one night. For the area, I would say it is the best of the options with a very nice restaurant/lounge.

The people working at this establishment were first rate and did all they could and more to accommodate this weary traveler. I enjoyed my stay, just wish I had been less busy and had more time to relax and enjoy the facility. Dinner at Olives was great!
