I just completed a 5 night stay at the Econo Lodge. This is a first class hotel! It has been a Platinum Award Winner in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011!! The staff is what makes this a first class hotel. When I arrived last Sunday afternoon, I was greeted by Don Osborn who was working behind the desk. He is... More

We stayed at the Econo Lodge for a week while we visited the Mayo Clinic because of others who had recommended it, and we agree that the hotel is a great place to stay. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the staff was very cheerful and helpful, and the breakfast was simple but adequate and included fresh fruit every day.... More

We stayed here on our way to Rapid City, SD from Toledo, Ohio just as a mid-point and were not disappointed! Hotel was very clean, staff was so helpful, and the breakfast was very nice. We would recommend the hotel. They also recommended the Whiskey Creek restaurant across the street which was excellent!

This hotel is extremely clean and comfortable. Rooms are a little small but what do you expect for the very reasonable price. I travel 26 weeks a year. I would never stay at an Econo Lodge because of the reputation as a cheap dirty place. Well I did stay here because of the trip adviser reviews. Shuttle comes promptly for... More

I'm originally from Rochester, MN and now live in the Denver, CO area. We still have many family and friends in Rochester and when we come back to visit, we always stay at Econo Lodge South. For most people, when they hear Econo Lodge, a certain picture comes to mind. I can tell you that this hotel is far from... More

We reserved 2 rooms for 2 nights as our son was a patient at Mayo. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating, from the first call to make the reservation to the day we checked out. They even offered us breakfast earlier than usual, had the surgery been scheduled early in the day. The rooms aren't real big, but they... More

We have made this hotel our 'home away from home' for the past four visits to be with our daughter who now works for the Mayo Clinic in Rochester. The value is excellent for the price. The rooms are quiet, immaculately clean, the breakfast is good (hardboiled eggs; waffles; cereal; pastries, juice coffee, fruit, etc.) The people who own the... More

I stayed here one night and was not disappointed. I took the free shuttle to/from Mayo. But I would advise that if 1) you are not driving, and 2) not on a tight budget, you should stay downtown. E.g., I walked around the Kahler Grand, and it seems very nice to have the subway walkway downstairs. It makes it so... More

We stayed at Econo lodge while my boyfriend had tests done at Mayo. The rooms are basic but clean. They do have a refrigerator and microwave in them. The staff is great; very helpful and accommodating. There's also a complimentary shuttle to Mayo clinic. Will return to Econo Lodge for future trips to Mayo Clinic.
