I enjoyed my stay - I found the room to be clean and the bed to be comfortable. It was quiet. The room comes with a microwave and refrigerator. This hotel is a pretty significant distance from the Mayo Clinic, so if you don't have a car you will rely on either a taxi or the shuttle for transportation. Staff... More

Gave stayed at this location many times. Like that it is right off the highway, close to restaurants and shopping, but still only a short drive from Mayo Clinic. Like that the hotel offers a Clinic rate. Great breakfast, host even offered to make a waffle for us. They also let us check out late with no charge due to... More

We enjoyed our stay! We arrived late on Sunday night/Monday morning. Couldn't find the hotel as mapquest indicated it was downtown in Rochester! We called the hotel and received directions. The staff was the best, friendly and willing to do anything needed. We were there until Friday. The pool was great, the food was good. Our granddaughter who is 4... More

very good hot tub, nice pool kinda cold at first. Breakfast needs a little more attention payed to it. For example the scrambled eggs were low and had been left un stirred till they were crusty. The hotel help is friendly and helpful. Room was ok with a balcony. The balcony smelled smokey but not the room. The winner was... More

Thank you for your response as we use all comments to help improve our service. I have talked to the breakfast staff about the eggs to try to keep them as fresh as possible. We will do a little more training since we have new breakfast attendants that were unsure of what to do. More

We were in Rochester to take my father to the Mayo Clinic. It was a 10 day trip. For the first half of the trip, my sister stayed in the room with our mother, and I came for the second half, and sister went home. The staff was helpful and friendly upon check in. The third morning, upon returning from... More

We do take this type of report very serious and that is what took me so long to interview each of the housekeeping staff as they do not work every day. As I explained to you the distance from the camera to your room was to far for me to see the faces of the employees. That is why I... More

Loved staying here. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Common areas and rooms were very clean. Bed was so comfortable I didn't want to get out of it. Breakfast was varied and was good. Definitely recommend this hotel.

I had a child that hoppèd around to a couple of her friends hotel rooms, so not sure where exactly it stemmed, but within 10 days after staying at this hotel in February, another daughter began getting what she called "mosquito bites". Initially, we chalked it up to spider bites. Then after a misdiagnosis of scabies, we have now found... More

Stayed here due to a convention that stole my usual downtown hotel...The room was relatively cheap, $80 something WITH tax, and the staff were most gracious and friendly. The room lacked the attention to detail that makes it FEEL clean: stained bedspread, gouged dresser top, a few crumbs, etc. Ditto for the common area - maybe clean the windows/door glass?... More

Stayed here for business. Check in was a bit slow and I was not recognized as a Choice Privileges member upon check in. But overall the facility is clean and comfortable with a pool. Breakfast was ample and when I need to stay on the North side of Rochester I will stay here.

WE have been coming to the Mayo clinic for over 2 years now and we always stayed at another motel closer but the service there declined so we decided to try a different hotel. We ended up choosing the Comfort Inn based on a conversation my wife had with the front desk clerk when she called. The clerk was friendly... More
