“Close and convenient”
Reviewed 10 November 2012

We have stayed at this hotel many times. Last summer we were at a campgrounds. Altho it was a very nice one; we missed the convenience of the Kahler Inn & Suites. To be able to park your car and just forget it is a plus. We were there for a week and it was cold and rainy. Didn't even have to go outside to get to the Mayo. Cafe is good or we could go the subway to the hospital cafeteria. Whatever we chose to do. Everyone is friendly from the maintenance staff to the desk clerks to the cafe staff. We will definitely stay there on our next trip to Mayo

Room Tip: I think all the rooms we've been in are good

The best feature of this hotel is the location. One is very close to Mayo (across the street) and you can use the "subway" system (underground walkway) which means you don't have to drag a heavy winter coat or umbrella to various appointments at Mayo. This convenience comes with a hefty pricetag.

For what you get, it is way over priced. The bathrooms are very tiny, you can hardly turn around. The rooms are dirty (I found goldfish under the bed) and dingy. The continental breakfast is awful (coffee is good).

Staff is friendly & parking is free.

I would not stay here again. There are more economical hotels on the "subway" system.

While attending medical appointments for our daughter, we stayed at the Kahler Inn and Suites for a week. The location is perfect to the Mayo clinic. You don't have to even go outside to get to the clinic. Underground subways connect the the hotel to the clinic. Continental breakfast every morning is free and is all you need. Staff are very friendly and eager to help. Enjoyed the exercise equipment. All good equipment and not very busy. Rooms are very clean and updated. Beds are very comfortable. All in all our stay was very good and would definitely return if we needed to.

Stayed here for ten days and thought it was quite good. Very convenient to Mayo, underground walkway so warm and no parking issues although parking is tight but once in you really don't need to move the car.
We had a larger room with micro and frig which is very convenient. Breakfast is included although not much of a variety.
There is a good coffee shop in the lobby as well as a sandwich shop. You can easily walk to the better restaurants in town.
Will stay here again.

The Good:
1. Location, location, location - Kahler Inn & Suites is located less than a block from Mayo Clinic building, Gonda building (where you may have Mayo appointments) and Methodist Hospital (also Mayo).
2. Complimentary parking - I recommend parking in the Graham parking garage, which is less than a block away - have your parking ticket stamped at the front desk. You can park temporarily on the street to unload, then park in the Graham garage.
3. Cost - The cost for my parents and I to stay was approximately $150 per night with taxes and a $10/night fee for a comfortable recliner.
4. Restaurant on site.
5. Complimentary breakfast - fruit, cereal, biscuits and gravy, bagels, breads, juices and coffee - the usual hotel breakfast fare.
6. Staff were friendly and accomodating.
7. Mini suites are nice - two queen beds, small living room and mini kitchen area. Would highly recommend if you are staying for a week. This gives you a little more space and makes your stay a bit more like home.
8. Nice bedding - comfortable, cottony sheets. I am picky about sheets and these are crisp and cottony.
9. Caribou Coffee Shop and Jimmy Johns Sandwich Shop entrances are located in the hotel lobby. Good coffee and subs.

The Bad:
1. The toilet/shower area is small - it is its own separate room. The vanity, sink and mirror are located in the main hotel room area, which is nice, but it would be nice to have a couple more square feet in the toilet and shower room.

Overall: I had to really think about it to write something bad - the bathroom comment above is stretching. This is a nice hotel, cozy, in a great location. It was a nice room to come home to after a long day at Mayo. Our housekeeping staff were wonderful, wait staff in the restaurant were friendly, it's a decent place to stay and I'd book there again if I had to visit Mayo.

Room Tip: Ask for a mini suite if you're staying more than one night, and get a recliner for $10/night. W...

Nice, clean, friendly staff and nice size room (we had a queen mini suite). Pool area was on the cool side. Pool is only 3-3.5 feet deep. I have teenagers, and this would have been nice to know, as we were planning on using pool, but didn't. The hot hot is the smallest I have seen-max people is 2 and it's not hot. The continental breakfast was nice.

I have had to visit Mayo many times and Kahler Inn and Suites is the best place to stay at a reasonable cost. It is conveniently located near Mayo and my favorite restaurants. The rooms are good sized compared to many in the area and comfortable. There were lots of pillows available and the bed was comfy. Going to Mayo is a stressful experience and staying at Kahler Inn and Suites makes it more manageable.
