“Easy Access to Mayo Clinic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

The hotel was ok, but very convenient to have the shuttle to take and pick up from Clinic. The kitchenette does not have alot of kitchen items, so would recommend that you bring some of your own if you plan to cook. We had the suite, which had a separate bedroom. There was not an air conditioner in the room, just an exhaust fan to push the air from the living room. If it was warmer it may not have been comfortable. Was glad I took a fan. The breakfast was your normal free breakfast. I would most likely stay there again due to the shuttle.

with in walking distance to Mayo Clinic.Luckily I only had to be there for the day. Staff very helpful and considerate, well groomed and pleasant personalitys The room we stayed in is in desperate need of a major overhaul. . Only way to cool bedroom was either open windows or turn on fan that went thru to the living room where ac was. Could see right through the wall. Nice kitchenette. Sofa and chair were almost impossible to sit on,Beds were comfortable. 2 dbl beds.

I read reviews online that scared me a bit about this hotel, but it turned out to be rather nice. Yes the rooms are a bit dated to the 80s but the lobby is large and accommodates a lot of people. The breakfast was your average free breakfast but the location to the soldiers baseball fields was perfect.

The desk service, shuttle drivers and service, and on-site restaurant (Twigs) at this facility are fantastic. We stayed in the main tower in the building with the reception area. We are not sure what the other buildings were like. The breakfast had great variety, and the bar/lounge had a good vibe. Nice workout area; two hot tubs and a nice size pool with great lighting. This hotel is not in downtown rochester, but is only 8 blocks away (we walked it 3 times) and the shuttle is available for free (tip the driver!) much of the day. You will not regret your choice to stay here - good value, great service, and clean, contemporary decor.

We stayed 2 nights for our visits to Mayo. Staff very helpful, shuttle service great. Breakfast great. About 6 blocks to downtown Rochester/Mayo if you want to walk. Will stay here again. We were in the main building, there are 2 others. Parking available. Restaurant in main building was also very good.

Room Tip: Ask for main building for easier access to restaurant. Shuttle will pick you up at any of the build...

Hotel was a good value for a group trip with teenagers. Rooms were clean. Overall look of the hotel was older but updates made experience okay. The hotel had 3 room complexes with one across the street so it was a bit disjointed.
