“Great Hotel Choice”
Reviewed 19 June 2012

I had a procedure last week at the Mayo Clinic and made the right choice in staying at the Best Western Soldiers Field Tower & Suites. The shuttle service to and from the airport and to the Mayo Clinic was superb. The staff was very accomodationg when I requested a room in a quiet location since I am a light sleeper. The suite was very clean and comfortable with may ammenities. The free breakfast had lots of selections and the food in the restaurant was great.
The hotel is located four blocks from the Mayo Clinic and though the hotel provides free shuttle service, I elected at times to get some exercise and walk. I have a follow-up procedure at the Mayo Clinic in the near future and I will definately stay here again. John S.

Greatly enjoyed our recent say. The staff was very cordial, the facility was attractive and clean and the room was more than adequate. As we were attending an event at the Civic Center, the shuttle service was convenient and we were able to avoid any parking difficulties. Will definitely stay at this motel again.

As a Mayo Clinic patient, I have nothing but praise for the accomodations, convenient shuttle service to the clinic from early morning to evening, and the big, clean rooms with WIFI. I use a 2 room suite, and my wife appreciates the separate rooms and 2 TVs. Parking outside the suites is close, but the separate buildings for some suites have uneven parking lots, and cement curbs that damage low vehicles such as vans that have low road clearance. Watch that! You are about 6 blocks from Mayo Clinic, and nearby shopping malls and stores line Route 63 and 52 which is quite close nearby. This is a very nice place, and we always feel right at home.

Our baseball team stayed there this past weekend and it was the most accomodating and nicest place I think I've ever stayed. They shuttled the coaches and players to the games early, so no extra vehicles would be needed, they had great rooms for all the families to gather and hang out at and charged nothing extra, very clean, the resturant was fantastic, including the food being unique and excellent - and the outside patio was SO nice. I have told everyone that is going to Rochester to check this place out. We will be back, there's not a doubt. All of us were so impressed. An outstanding hotel. Thank you for making our stay fun, relaxing & stress free! Great job!!!

The service here is excellent and they are very attentive to my needs as a Mayo patient. You will not find a friendlier staff anywhere! The beds are wonderfully comfortable and the rooms are spacious and very clean. Breakfast has so much you never get bored, even if you're there for an extended stay. Love the shuttle service that takes you wherever you want to go!

We booked a two room suite for 3 nights. Great location! Close to Mayo Clinic as well as shopping. Rooms were clean and bed was comfy! Hardly heard any noise so got a great nights rest. There was something for everyone for breakfast. Coffee, 4 kinds of juices, cold cereal, oatmeal, eggs, sausage, breads, bagels, rolls, fruit and waffles! Staff was very friendly whenever we called with a question. Hot tub and pool were very clean and nice. Very handy having a full size refrigator, dishwasher, stove and microwave. I will be booking this hotel when ever I am in Rochester.

We arrived at this hotel around midnight after a full day of flight delays and hard traveling. The lobby was being remodeled so we understood that it didn't look or smell it's best. We were sent to another building across the parking lot. Noticing cigarette butts on the floor of the elevator while going up to our level should have prepared me for what greeted us when we opened the door. The kitchenette style room had the filthiest carpet I'd ever seen. Nothing on Best Western's website is remotely like the shabby, dirty room that we, being exhausted, spent the night in. When the toilet wouldn't work the next morning I asked the manager, "Chris", to upgrade our room. Because we had booked with priceline he couldn't have cared less about our predicament. I gave him payment for a decent room in the main building and was on the hook for the trashy room as well until we convinced Priceline to refund us for it. The Best Western manager didn't lift a finger to do anything for us. Bringing an ill family member to Rochester for treatment at the Mayo isn't much fun to begin with but the situation that Best Western creates by booking unsuspecting visitors into a slum certainly makes thing worse. If they have so much contempt for Priceline customers why do they participate in Priceline bookings? I've seen a couple dozen reviews now that describe fully what we were put through. My advise to potential guests is to steer clear of this outrageous situation.
