We had previously stayed here for trips to the Mayo Clinic, each stay was very good. This time was to bury my father's remains, so our trip was short. We arrived late, but I received a call from Ben at 8 confirming our stay, which I appreciated due the the 6 hour drive we endured. Breakfast was early, but delicious... More

My husband and I came to Rochester for the Mayo Clinic. This hotel is CLEAN! Our first night we had an issue with the bedding when we turned it down but the gal at the front desk came right up with new bedding for us. I would only ask for improvement on a few things: 1) the beds seem very... More

Thank you for taking your time to comment on your stay. We really do read them all and use them to improve our service. We have taken your advice on the meat change-up.

The rooms are so comfy...love the beds which are so comfortable with very nice bedding (yes that matters lol) and probably the most important of all, everything is sparkling clean. It has great amenities as well, including an awesome breakfast and even a... More

Good room. Good price. Friendly staff. My first time staying at an econo-lodge, and happy we had arrangements well in advance, as this is a popular place for mayo goers. Bed was comfy, but pillows could be bigger. All in all worth while. Happy with the stay.

This is one of the best places I have ever stayed in. The front desk staff were helpful and friendly. The room was a clean, bright and the bed was really comfortable. We didn't get any outside noise from other rooms. This was one of the best sleeps ever.

Thank you for taking time to comment on your stay. I apologize your review was not answered in a timely manor. I am glad you enjoyed a quiet night sleep. Our hotel is concrete/Block walls and pre-stressed concrete floor between 1st and 2nd floors. This helps keep our rooms a little more quiet than many guests are used to. We... More

Nice hotel for the price. They have nice features like boards games in the breakfast area that are available for use. Was fun for grandpa and grandson to play some checkers. The beds are a little bit noisy when you move on them but for the price of this hotel you can't go wrong with this one. Thanks!
