In the title compound, [Mn(C7H5O3)2(C14H12N2)(H2O)]·C14H12N2·H2O, the MnII ion is coordinated by a bidentate 2,9-dimethyl-1,10-phenanthroline (dmphen) ligand, two monodentate 3-hydroxy­benzoate anions (3-HBA) and one water mol­ecule in a distorted trigonal-bipyramidal environment. An uncoordinated dmphen and an uncoordinated water mol­ecule cocrystallized with each complex mol­ecule. Intra- and inter­molecular O—H⋯N and O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds are also present between the coordinated 3-HBA and water mol­ecules and the uncoordinated dmphen and water mol­ecules in the crystal. The packing of the structure is further stabilized by π–π stacking inter­actions involving dmphen mol­ecules, with a centroid–centroid separation of 3.705 (3) Å.
