We have made this hotel our 'home away from home' for the past four visits to be with our daughter who now works for the Mayo Clinic in Rochester. The value is excellent for the price. The rooms are quiet, immaculately clean, the breakfast is good (hardboiled eggs; waffles; cereal; pastries, juice coffee, fruit, etc.) The people who own the hotel and the folks who staff it are all super-friendly and do anything they can to help guests feel at home. The rooms have a large recliner in addition to a small table and chairs. The linens are fresh and clean. The flat-screen tv is fine. Counterspace around the bath sink is small, but very clean. Overall, if you are looking for good value for the money, this is the place. They don't have an elevator to the second floor, but they will help with luggage if needed. I can't speak for other hotels in the area, but this hotel definitely deserves the "Platinum" rating that they have been given by their hotel chain as far as we are concerned!

I stayed here one night and was not disappointed. I took the free shuttle to/from Mayo. But I would advise that if 1) you are not driving, and 2) not on a tight budget, you should stay downtown. E.g., I walked around the Kahler Grand, and it seems very nice to have the subway walkway downstairs. It makes it so convenient to walk anywhere, even in inclement weather. Sure all the peripheral hotels provide a free shuttle. But be aware that they run about every hour, and they make several stops at other hotels before heading directly to Mayo.

Room Tip: There are two floors. No elevator to the second.

We stayed at Econo lodge while my boyfriend had tests done at Mayo. The rooms are basic but clean. They do have a refrigerator and microwave in them. The staff is great; very helpful and accommodating. There's also a complimentary shuttle to Mayo clinic. Will return to Econo Lodge for future trips to Mayo Clinic.

We were going through Rochester and stayed at this spot overnight. We were greeted by the desk person, Don, a very helpful and pleasant young man. He was able to give us some ideas on what to do while there and where to go to dinner. Our room was immaculate and the bed very comfortable. The entire establishment is no-smoking. If we're ever in the area again, we will definitely stay there and we would recommend this place to anyone needing a comfortable place to stay in Rochester.

Trip Advisor was the first place I went to find a place to stay in Rochester. I am so happy I did. This place was great. Extremely clean and friendly staff. We enjoyed the discount at Perkins. Another thing I loved was the power strips in the room. Between cell phone chargers, heart defib monitors, computers, etc. we have alot to plug in; it was a WONDERFUL extra touch. Way better than having half the stuff plugged in the bathroom.

Breakfast was nice. Waffles, hard boil eggs, cereal, oatmeal, donuts, toast, coffee and juices.

Within a 10 minute of Mayo main buildings. Free WiFi and parking. There is also a shuttle to Mayo but we didn't use it.

There is no elevator in the building. I could see how this could be difficult for many coming to the area for Mayo. My dad is still able to walk up stairs slowly so it wasn't an issue for us. We were at the top of the stairs in room 208.

Great price for the quality.

If dad decides to move forward with his operation we will definitely stay here again.
