We had a 10 day stay in a suite (at a terrific Mayo rate) that consisted of a bedroom with 2 double beds and a separate room with table, chairs, microwave, coffee maker, fridge and sink. The arrangement was terrific so that sleep and other activities could be divided between the rooms (both had TV's ). We found it quiet... More

I was extremely leery after reading the recent reviews, but booked on short notice. Kari was at the front desk and was friendly and professional. The hotel was more than adequate in all of the " must haves" on my list. Clean. Comfortable bed. Quiet. Extras were great too. Refrigerator, microwave, plenty of towels. Shuttle to Mayo Clinic, dependable and... More

My hotel needs are simple, so I'm easy to please. Yet even I thought the carpets were filthy! A few reviewers pointed out that the carpeting was damp. I noticed that too. Attached is a picture of clean white socks after just a few minutes of walking on the carpet. (I was curious enough to test it out.) Damp carpeting... More

This Clarion must have been a Holiday Inn in a previous incarnation, for it has the "holidome" set-up with neat suites ringing the pool area, as well as rooms in an adjacent building which is a hop, skip and jump from the lobby. My son and daughter-in-law married here the weekend of Sept. 14 and I can't say enough about... More

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Looks like an old truck stop. The rooms, hallways, restaurant (food was good though) and location were dingy and depressing. Staff was friendly though. Surprised because Choice hotels are usually nice.

We opted to stay in a pool area room. It was a little dated but clean. Room had a fridge and micro. Nice size pool and game room. Restaurant attached with free breakfast. Morning and afternoon server was excellent! Staff friendly and shuttle service to Mayo prompt. Patio bar in evenings with gas bonfires.

The Clarion will welcome you and your dog even if the dog is big. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean, spacious, and have both refrigerator and small microwave. The decoration and furnishings are dated in terms of color and style but the beds have been updated with new 12 inch mattresses and are very comfortable. There is a restaurant... More

On route to Vancouver, we were visiting a friend in Rochester, and booked a room online at this hotel - thinking it was not the low quality it was. The beds were old, the rooms were super dated and i did not want to stay here. Gross The breakfast - was free - but I would have to be paid... More

It is far worth the money to spend a few extra dollars to stay somewhere else. We should have known that you get what you pay for. The Clarion in our hometown is well cared for and modern feeling. This hotel is badly in need of TLC! The room was small, outdated, and unkempt. The hallways and grounds were downright... More

We returned again for a 2 nights stay at the Clarion Inn in Rochester, MN. Their website is stating newly renovated rooms, however the room we had is exactly the same as it has been for the past several years. The room was clean but could use some renovation. It seems things have went down hill since we started staying... More
