Residence Inn by Marriott is an excellent pleasant hotel- chose to stay here with in a 2 bedroom/2 bath suite during a Mayo Clinic visit. New, very clean rooms with nice grade finishes, thoughtful touches, and great staff, top to bottom. Full kitchen in our suite came equiped with everything we needed. Great free breakfast with 6 or so hot items plus the usual cereal/pastries/fruit. Free "finger food" on Monday through Thursday nights- the night my brother arrived they had Bratwurst with complimentary beer, which made him proclaim that he "loved this place!". 2 short blocks to Mayo Clinic, and is connected to the "subway". Rooms are discounted with longer stays.
A woman connected with the Mayo Clinic also recommended the Brentwood Inn & Suites one block away for a less expensive option. She said it isn't fancy, but it is very clean. The friendly front desk let me look at four room types, and I think her assessment is correct. It is also connected to the "subway".
I also checked out rooms in the Rochester Marriott Hotel and the Hilton Garden Inn, but neither were as nice as the Residence Inn by Marriott, and the Brentwood Inn beat them both if price is important.
Also, found a shuttle service called Rochester Direct which goes roundtrip from the Minneapolis airport to Rochester hotels every hour or so for about $50. The driving time is 90 minutes, and it is a lot cheaper (and about the same amount of time) than hoping on a commuter flight from Minneapolis.
