distance to Mayo is a lengthy walk if your not up for 15 min of walking. Staff is very friendly and interactive and informative. Parking is sometimes crowed but handy, but at an extra 13.00 a night it should be. For a single room it is expensive, Service at restaurant is always lacking for lack of people.

Rooms were relatively quiet. At check-in was told garage fee would be minimal because of the hours we would be there but were charged 13 at the gate. Restaurant was not expecting as many people as showed up but single waitress worked quickly and had some kitchen staff help. Food was ok. I booked two rooms at separate times but... More

The room was typical for a Holiday Inn and the location was good--connected by Skyway to the Mayo Clinic. It's a bit of a hike if you are not in good shape, though. I had to wheel my husband back from the clinic in a wheelchair and some of the ramps by the hotel kept me on my toes—literally. The... More

The hotel is on the skyway which connects to the clinic, although it was beautiful fall weather, so we walked on the sidewalks outside. Staff was helpful and courteous. Free parking in the ramp behind the hotel. They provided a nice happy hour. The restaurant prices were reasonable and food was good. Our room had a microwave and fridge. We... More

I enjoy staying at the this Holiday Inn when I go to the Mayo Clinic. It is on the SkyWalk, and although the walk from the hotel to Mayo Clinic is probably the longest, it is a nice walk.

We were scheduled to stay here 4 nights while scheduled for dr. appts. at Mayo Clinic. I knew when we made the reservation, it was a handicapped accessible room, as that was all there was available, and that was okay with me. NO ONE told me there was no window. Too depressing. We were strategizing where we could sit and... More

Nothing fancy here. What was advertised on line is not what we got, no breakfast, no hot tub and terrible service. The pool was cold, the sauna was a joke- fan sucking the warm air out and the door did not seal and had a gap on the bottom, and to top it all off the fridge in our room... More

Thankfully they had a room. Very small, two queens by the pool, no outside window. Did have microwave and small fridge. Beds were ok. Heating, cooling ok. No place to really have two people sit. Very tight. Closet hanger was half length. Staff was very good. In a pinch ok.

Michelle especially went beyond expectation and was so so friendly! 2) The elevators are FAST. I mean FAST.
