The purpose of my stay was to take my daughter to the Mayo Clinic. I stay her because of the great service, good free breakfast, excellent restaurant, free shuttle service at you beckoned call, and clean rooms. It's also within walking distance of Mayo and various walking trails. Will definitely stay here again when the need arises.

We have stayed at this hotel for the past six years when visiting the Mayo Clinic, which happens four times a year. The convenience of the shuttle that they offer is second to none in our opinion. We stay in the main building when given a choice, as the restaurant is located in that building and we eat there regularly.... More

We stayed in an extended stay suite while our son was having heart surgery. Breakfast was great, Room was good, staff was excellent. Never waited more than a 5 minutes for a shuttle and most drivers asked about my son by name! Would stay again!!

My wife and I spent a total of almost 4 weeks at the Centerstone (formerly Best Western) in April and June/July while she was being evaluated for surgery and for the surgery itself. I had researched reviews extensively and believe I can offer some insights (especially about the suites) and help put into perspective my experience along with many others... More

This hotel is terrible. We’re used to Hampton Inns but are here for a family event. We have a room in one of the “out-buildings” without indoor room entrances. We’re on the 1st floor and the room is extremely damp. The AC unit is running and cooling but it appears that the condensed water doesn’t drain anywhere. The humidity in... More

The hotel was ok, but very convenient to have the shuttle to take and pick up from Clinic. The kitchenette does not have alot of kitchen items, so would recommend that you bring some of your own if you plan to cook. We had the suite, which had a separate bedroom. There was not an air conditioner in the room,... More

I read reviews online that scared me a bit about this hotel, but it turned out to be rather nice. Yes the rooms are a bit dated to the 80s but the lobby is large and accommodates a lot of people. The breakfast was your average free breakfast but the location to the soldiers baseball fields was perfect.

The desk service, shuttle drivers and service, and on-site restaurant (Twigs) at this facility are fantastic. We stayed in the main tower in the building with the reception area. We are not sure what the other buildings were like. The breakfast had great variety, and the bar/lounge had a good vibe. Nice workout area; two hot tubs and a nice... More
