My unwanted trip to Mayo was very tolerable due to the fact that this hotel was absolutely what we needed to make a stressful week a little better. The rooms are clean, lobby always had coffee (and more), beds extremely comfy, water pressure perfect, room size was nice and big, as many pillows for all likes, caring and compassionate employees,...

Newly renovated hotel - nice modern decor (love the track door for the bathroom) comfy beds, microwave & fridge, free continental breakfast and a nice outdoor sitting area. Convenient to Mayo Clinic - you can walk but there's also shuttle service and its directly across from St. Mary's. Other shuttles also pickup at the hotel (Apache Mall, Walmart). There are... More

Very clean hotel and spacious rooms, free coffee and tea at all hours and cookies 6-8pm, what more could you want. Had I found this place earlier I wouldn't have stayed somewhere else earlier in the week.

Right across the street from Mayo st. Mary's . Newly remodeled very clean nice rooms. Great for extended stay with free shuttle to hospital. Walking distance to many places to eat. Breakfast as good. Pretty much what we have come to expect.

There could be no better place to stay if you are visiting a patient at St. Mary's. Walk right out to the crosswalk to the hospital.

The room was big, nice and clean. The beds were a bit hard for my taste but were still comfortable. Nice breakfast. Friendly staff. Parking is tight and a bit confusing but at least it is covered parking. The best and most important feature is the convenience to St. Mary's Hospital. The hotel is literally across the street and there... More

Stayed at the Aspen Select for 6 nights during my dad's surgery across the street at St. Mary's Hospital (part of the Mayo campus). Clean rooms and a good price. Breakfast is pretty basic (cereal, fruit, yogurt, waffles, juice) and that was fine for us. Location is super if you want to be close to the hospital. Service was good... More

Aspen Select sure made our circumstances less stressful by working with us on the many uncertainties that come up with most any hospitalization. Coffee, evening cookies, kind staff, nice breakfast, modern, clean rooms, on-site parking etc. Many nearby restaurants and convenience stores.

This was our second stay in the past year and we love it. Nice location, pleasant staff and very helpful in every way. We plan to stay here again in the future. It's also close enough to the clinic that we get some needed exercise.
