My annual trek to Mayo Clinic is made easy by the good folks at Kahler Grand Hotel. They know why I am there, greet me with a welcome checking in and always wish me a good year and a "hope to see you again in a year" upon my departure. The wait staff in the restaurants and the cleaning staff... More

This is an old hotel, and you can see it in the rooms, but the property is in excellent shape and is obviously well cared for. The staff is great and it is the closest hotel to the clinic.

My third visit to Mayo as well as the Kahler Grand. Convenient location for Mayo patients. My room was nice, though the bathroom was small. Staff was very helpful dealing with requests I made of them. Parking is available in a garage attached to the hotel. There was always space to park. Room was clean. Shower and water supply was...

I stayed in this hotel four years ago and again last night (4-30-12). There has been no renovation. The room is still very small with a small bathroom. In fact, the shower curtain rod is not the simi-circle type to keep the curtain from touching you. The sink is just an old type free standing with no where for the... More

The Kahler Grand is a very nice hotel. I have stayed their a few times for my trips to the Mayo Clinic which is directly across the street. It is very convenient. The rooms are nice and many have been remodeled. Even the ones that haven't been remodeled yet are still very nice and up-to-date. You can not go wrong... More

Booked the Kahler Grand (online) for surgery at the Mayo/Methodist Hospital, so choice was 100% based on location. Got a "special Mayo patient rate" of $115 a night. MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT!!! Room was very dated. Dirt on carpet, so either had not been vacuumed or poorly done. Toilet running when we entered the room: how could a caring employee have left... More

Thank you for taking the time to give us for feedback on your stay at the Kahler Grand. I was certainly disappointed to hear that we did not meet up to your expectations with regard to carpet cleanliness, commode problems and general conditions. This is certainly not indicative of what we want our guest to experience and can assure you... More

I lived in a student room and do not know if these differ from the ordinary rooms. The student room was a bit old, but it was clean and OK. The bed was fine, the shower fine. The fridge was small but sufficient for some minor food. The room had a television. Among the backsides were a net that covered... More

We chose this hotel because it seemed like a good middle ground without jumping up in price to the mariott. The lobby is a little outdated, but check in was quick and efficient. We opted to pay more for the executive king and definitely glad that we did. From the few quick glances we had of other rooms they looked... More

On-line reservations, military discount and the closest hotel to Mayo clinic. Comfy beds, rooms can be small, but nicely appointed. Parking is validated for guests. We stay here every time we visit Mayo.

This hotel is right across the street from Mayo Clinic. We chose to use the Subway to get around and easily made it from one appointment to another even though scheduled in different buildings. Our room was small but nicely appointed and the price was very affordable. We were offered help with our luggage although we chose not to use... More
