GuestHouse Inn & Suites Rochester
Ranked #29 of 50 Hotels in Rochester
Reviewed 4 August 2014

We were looking for a budget friendly stay with a nice pool area for the kids, and found it here! Easy to get to and close to the Mayo area were also on the list and this met the bill. This was a nice older hotel, rooms had a nice setup with microfridge, and the pool did not disappoint! Zero entry pool with slide was played in for hours, the big pool offered good depths for all patrons, and hot tub was also very nice. Both big pools also had handicap access chair lifts, which we did not require but impressed me nonetheless. Pool is set in a building away from the rooms so it opens early and closes late - best pool hours I had ever seen! Breakfast bar was well staffed and supplied, and any breakfast bar with waffles gets a gold star in my book! Check in at 3 and check out at noon - also some of the better times I have seen, and accomodated our travel plans nicely. Hotel has some wear and tear but looks nice with recent paint, rooms were clean and we would stay there again. Thank you!

We stayed in the GuestHouse Inn & Suites while my husband was a patient at the Mayo Clinic. For the price, the facility very nice. The rooms were clean, the pool area was very clean, the staff was always very friendly and the check-in and check-out was very easy.

We had to extend our visit to the Mayo and the GuestHouse Inn & Suites allowed us to stay in the same room during our visit. They even shifted a few things around to accommodate this.

The hallways made our initial view of the facility a little concerned (carpet is old and not vacuumed well) but the room itself was very clean.

If we need to visit Rochester again, this is where we will stay. Very convenient to everything.

Would highly recommend to friends and family.

This hotel offers absolutely everything that is needed for your stay in Rochester, whether for a short stay or a longer period of time. The breakfast bar is well supplied, the front desk staff is friendly, the shuttle bus to the hospital & clinic is always prompt and the housecleaning staff does a nice job! We slept well in comfy beds and the hallways were quiet. We would highly recommend this motel to anyone.

Room Tip: First floor was quiet & newly rennovated pool is a real plus for little ones!

Pretty much same as earlier reveiws. Average rooms and below average on the breakfast. Hotel is obviously older and has been painted over several times to make it appear as fresh. Location is a big challenge. Easy off the interstate but then turn after turn thru a restaurant parking lot to access hotel. We programmed in the given address and GPS took us to an exact address that was 25 blocks from the address of the hotel. When i asked for the correct address at the hotel the answer was 'ya we know that. That happens many times." So if you go here turn immediately off of the interstate exit to the address.
Pool area was nice and has a nice zero entry pool for little kids with an raindrop umbrella along with a second pool and a whirlpool area.

We came down here for our first trip to the mayo. We booked a room with a stove and fridge and when we got into the room it had a stove, fridge, microwave,toaster,coffee pot and on top of it the biggest surprise was to open the drawers and cupboards and find pots and pans, real glass coffee cups and glasses, silverware and other stuff to cook with.. it may not seem like it but when you are away from home and you can find a few things that makes you feel like your in a home its relaxing. We will be staying here again for sure. Not sure why people are complaining about the pool being full of kids, smoke butts outside and the breakfast... one yes there is kids in the pool.. its a hotel and think back to when you were a kid.. you never wanted to leave the pool it was the best ever. The people smoking outside... well the whole hotel is smoke free so why is that a problem and last.. OMG 4 inch tall waffles you make yourself for breakfast hot and steamy with butter?? I have never seen that at a breakfast before.. soft bagels cereal, hot chocolate, spiced cider, yogurt, fresh fruit, I mean if you cant find something in all of that to eat your way too picky.. Will recommend and stay at again thanks so much.. oh and the price is really good the ones downtown charge for everything including water, and parking.. umm no.. try this out its great..

Room Tip: Get a suite... its way less than an average room at any other place and you can keep your hot stuff...

We stayed one night driving through Rochester. It was not fancy or new. It was clean and about what you could expect for the price. Continental breakfast was a little below average. It could use some updates but was good for one night.
