Econo Lodge - Mayo Clinic Area
Ranked #18 of 50 Hotels in Rochester
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 September 2011

This hotel is extremely clean and comfortable. Rooms are a little small but what do you expect for the very reasonable price. I travel 26 weeks a year. I would never stay at an Econo Lodge because of the reputation as a cheap dirty place. Well I did stay here because of the trip adviser reviews. Shuttle comes promptly for Mayo clinic at scheduled times. Staff is very friendly. Could not have been a better stay.

I'm originally from Rochester, MN and now live in the Denver, CO area. We still have many family and friends in Rochester and when we come back to visit, we always stay at Econo Lodge South. For most people, when they hear Econo Lodge, a certain picture comes to mind. I can tell you that this hotel is far from that. It's very clean, has many updates, and is really a pleasure to stay at. Unless you are used to staying at high-end hotels, you will really enjoy staying here. I do recommend, however, that you book one of the "larger" rooms. You'll appreciate the extra space.

We reserved 2 rooms for 2 nights as our son was a patient at Mayo. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating, from the first call to make the reservation to the day we checked out. They even offered us breakfast earlier than usual, had the surgery been scheduled early in the day. The rooms aren't real big, but they are clean and comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was good as well. The location was great as it was within 1 1/2 miles to Mayo and there were many restaurant options within walking distance. They also offer a Mayo Clinic shuttle, which we didn't use, but is available. You also get a Mayo Clinic discount if you or a family member is a patient, which is very nice. We will definitely stay there again.

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.
