“Nice place to stay.. if you are going to St. Mary's Hosp.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2009

If you are looking for a place close to St. Mary's....just book it!....We stayed 2 nights....( hubby had to stay at the hosp.) and I have just booked Springhill again for my return trip. The hotel is clean, rooms are nice (the two-doubles is larger, w/separated sitting area) ....staff is friendly and the breakfast lady keeps the sausage & egg muffin makings, etc... well stocked....(they have the waffle maker also!). The (small) pool and the warm, "just right" jetted spa were nice also. Even though the hotel was at full capacity and on a semi-busy street, all was pretty quiet. (we stayed mid-week). McDonald's and KFC are within easy walking distance, we also ate at the "Canadian Honker" (just down the street)...decent, for lunch or dinner.

It was a very hard time for us, but we had a very nice stay here. They were very nice. It was a little out dated but it was great for the price. We really liked the location too!

This hotel was adequate, but not great. The "suite" was very small. This is not a true "suite" in the sense that there is no door between the sleeping area & the sitting area. This was really important for us because my 15 month old daughter was with us, so we wanted her to be able to sleep in a separate area. The decor was dated and I found it depressing. Breakfast was OK, but the selection, especially of fruit, was very limited. Some of the sausage was overcooked & tough. One good thing was that the sink & bath/toilet area were separate which was great for sharing the room & space. The room was very hot & it was difficult to cool down except with air conditioning. There was a "desk" that sort of doubled as a table...the executive-style chair did not even fit under it. And there was no outlets nearby to plug a computer into. We could not get the wireless internet to work from our computer.

The hotel is located directly across from St. Mary's hospital. The staff was very friendly & helpful. They did provide a clean pack-n-play for my daughter. Also, even though our room was right next to the elevator, it was very quiet.

We moved to the Staybridge Suites and were MUCH happier. Although Staybridge was a little more expensive (about $15/night with the Mayo discount), it was WELL worth it!

This hotel is the all suites Springhill Suites but keep in mind it's not as nice as the Courtyard down the street. This hotel has free parking along with the breakfast but other than that I would pay a little more to sta at the Courtyard. Overall this hotel OK. Rooms were clean but entryway is dirty, outdated silk flowers in the lobby, nice pool. It is fine for an overnight stay. We didn't have to sign any contract for being quiet. Just me & my mom stayed while my dad was in the hospital. We booked online for $101 plus tax - $111. At the Courtyard we paid $89 plus tax plus parking but it's a much nicer hotel. Beds were comfy but they are only double beds. I would not stay again as I just didn't think it was very clean. Would be fine for a family wanting the free breakfast in the AM. Pool is very small but at least they have one...

We've had 2 stays in February/March, each for 10 days, and really enjoyed the hotel. The staff was so accomodating. We came for the Mayo Clinic so we were under a lot of stress. This hotel clearly caters to the Mayo patients. They went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. They even cleaned snow off the cars. We had an appointment after check out and they let us keep our car in the lot so we wouldn't have to pay for parking at the clinic. Free breakfast was great. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling for medical reasons. This hotel certainly knows that their core guests are here for Mayo Clinic appointments. We'll be coming back in August and will definitely stay here again.

Liked: Guestroom doors do not slam, brightly lit hallways, room painted sunny yellow color, comfy soft beds, separate desk area far from beds, nice continental breakfast, super clean public areas, sun pours in even number windows in AM.

Did not like: Open closet in room, no name in room coffee, one slow elevator, closet designed as a business center, popcorn ceilings, spot painted walls in room, heavy walkers in corridors can be heard a mile away.

What a difference a few days makes. No annoying kids to be seen during my stay of 3/19/2009. Hotel was very clean and bright. Overall very quiet although I was staying on 4th floor which I recommend. You may wish to take the stairs though unless you don't mind waiting a bit for the elevator.

We should have known something was amiss when check-in consisted of signing a paper about not partying after 10 at night.

Since this hotel is right across the street from St. Mary's Hospital and the Mayo Clinic shuttle stops at the front door, we thought Springhill suites would cater to people trying to remember when their next medical appt. was scheduled.

Alas, the real appeal is to sports teams. Since each "suite" has a sofa bed, you can pack up to 6 kids to a room and feed them all for free at the breakfast buffet. Then there is the pool, where they can gather and relax between basketball games, swim meets, etc.

One elevator and hundreds of kids going up and down means you take the stairs a lot.

They descend on the breakfast buffet like locusts. The hotel puts out a nice selection, but you need to get up early to take advantage of it.

If you want to use a computer in the business area, ask a staff member to enforce the 18 and over rule. Otherwise, forget about it.

I assume many guests have a calmer experience than we had. After all, how many basketball tournaments and regional swim meets can there possible be?

But as you can imagine, a hotel with this many young guests takes a beating. Our mattress had several stains. The towels had seen better days. And so forth.

If you have bunch of kids that you need to house and feed for a few days in Rochester, this is the place.

However, if you're looking for a calm place to relax between medical appts. or you have business you need to attend to, surely there has got to be somewhere in Rochester that caters to adults.

Thank you for the feedback. With our location being directly across from Saint Marys hospital, we do our best to cater to medical patients and guests. We sincerely apologize that you had a less then relaxing stay at the Springhill Suites during your visit. Your feedback helps us to improve customer satisfaction and we are grateful for your comments. On the rare occasion when there is a youth sporting event such as this, we do our best to inform those teams that the majority of our guests are visiting the hospital. We ask them to be respectful of other guests' need for rest and relaxation. You will also be pleased to know that, since your visit, we have replaced all of the beds in the hotel. Again, thank you for your feedback. If you are ever in the area again, we hope you give us another try.
