“An Oldie but Goodie (valuewise)”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

If you're looking for an elegant place to stay in Rochester, look elsewhere. If you're content with an older, but clean and functional room in Downtown, then this is a real value. You won't find amenities like a pool and continental breakfast, but they do provide free parking (a real plus downtown!) and a nice restaurant adjoining the hotel. Also, you will not have a microwave of fridge, so bring a cooler with you. The staff is freindly and the location is excellent if you are planning any time at the (Mayo) Clinic. One negative was the strange faucet arrangement in the tub... it appeared make shift.

Room Tip: If you plan to open the windows, you might not want to overlook the parking lot. We had a jackhammer...

The hotel is old, and room was very small. It was clean and the restaurant was next door. Location is nice if you want to shop around. It had character I guess you could say!

We LOVED the 'Old' charm....this is NOT your run of the mill hotel room setup and we liked that! Staff was very helpful and room was VERY clean!!. If you want luxury..go pay the price at a different hotel, but if you want cozy & your basic needs met....this is perfect!!

Room Tip: no luxury here.....sleeping is great

I love staying at Days Inn in Rochester. It may be old, but it has character! The staff is helpful. The morning desk lady remembers me and makes me feel at home. I stay there every time. It is close to everything!

Room Tip: It's worth the money to be close to Mayo and free parking!

The positives would be clean, low price, convenient location to Mayo Clinic, and free Wireless Access. If you are visiting during the winter, there is no underground access to Mayo Clinic. As other reviews have discussed: 1) Small room 2) step up to bathroom 3) VERY noisy - if you are a light sleeper then you will not enjoy 4) Needs an update - cracked paint, stains on sheets, rips in shower curtain, etc. 5) No workout facility.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing away from main street - very noisy. 402 is very bad.
