We stayed at the Rochester South Extended Stay America on July 17th. The room was very comfortable and clean. The hotel could use some redecorating & Updating. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were there since we had a family member at the Mayo Clinic. We would definitly stay there again.

I like this hotel because the room is only cleaned once a week, I don't mind making my own bed. The hotel carpet needed to be cleaner, but other than that, it was fairly clean. Staff was very nice and the hotel was quiet. It's a bare bones place, the price was right

These lovely rooms, located a 5 min drive from the Mayo, are clean and well appointed and homelike, with cupboards and appliances and all the conveniences of a home. The staff is useful, courteous and welcoming and when our rental truck's roof collapsed, they were compassion itself and even extended the check out time for us! The breakfast is a... More

Stayed here one night. The carpeting had lots of stains and the beds were like sleeping on plywood. Would only stay here again if nothing else on the south side of Rochester was available. Staff were all very efficient and friendly. Complimentary coffee and fruit is a nice benefit in the morning.

I like the kitchen in the room & the recliner, but my floor smelled of cigarette smoke (although the room did not), and the fluorescent lighting in the room was unpleasant. There were also a few carpet stains in my room & the hall (along with what appeared to be cigarette ashes in the hall which was never cleaned up... More

This is a pretty bare bones hotel but the property is clean, the staff is friendly and I got a great rate ($50/night plus taxes). The rooms are spacious but you will need to supply your own toiletries, coffee and the morning breakfast is a grab-and-go with instant oatmeal, muffins, some fruit and coffee. Room cleaning service is included in... More

We booked online about an hour before we arrived for a rate of $60. Everything else was full. You essentially get what you pay for. A full kitchen is nice if you are doing the 'extended stay'. The bed was OK, but a little on the firm and somehow saggy side. A/C worked, but the unit was falling apart. Rooms... More

I have stayed at this Extended Stay America at least once a year for the past 5 years when I travel to the Mayo Clinic. I stayed here for 3 weeks on 2010.

This is a very nice hotel in a convenient location - close to stores, restaurants and < 10 minutes from the Mayos. I had read a couple recent reviews after I booked and was a little nervous, but this was not my experience. My room was very clean and large with a decent size bathroom and full tub and a... More

We had to find an inexpensive hotel as we were going to be there for a few day running tests at the Mayo Clinic. The Extended Stay has the cheapest rates we could find (without it being a real dump) and so we decided to stay there. The staff were very nice and helpful. The rooms are old and outdated.... More
