My friend and I just stayed at the Econo Lodge South for a friend's wedding and we loved every minute of our stay. The location was great, easy to find, and close to everything needed, yet still felt like a quiet vacation away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The staff were very helpful and kind! The room... More

The Econo Lodge South is an excellent, economical place to stay while in Rochester, MN, whether for business or pleasure. We stayed for two nights and could not have been more pleased by the property, location, room and staff. Conveniently located approximately 5 minutes off highway 52 and little more than 5 minutes from downtown Rochester, nearby amenities include plenty... More

My husband and I were in town for testing at Mayo clinic. The hotel property is very clean throughout, the staff is very friendly and accomodating, and the shuttle service is a great ammenity. We also received a 10% discount at a few area restaurants just by showing our room card. I've stayed at many different hotels and resorts. This... More

We were looking for something cheap but nice (if there's such a thing) for a one night stay on our way to the Mall of America and this place was great! The bed was a little too squishy for our liking but other than that the staff was very friendly and they had a great continental breakfast. The room was... More

Clean, Courteous, decent breakfast. And perhaps the most comfortable bed I've slept in at a Hotel, and I've slept in a lot!

Stayed here Thanksgiving weekend for the evening. We planned to get up early for Black Friday, so we were looking for cheap accommodations - this hotel exceeded all of expectations. I do not think you will find a nicer hotel in Rochester for the price. Clean rooms and nice staff. The complimentary breakfast is fairly basic, but for the price,... More

This is a great place for the money, clean, well equiped and bright. The staff was more than freindly. Did not have breakfast or use the shuttle so cannot comment on them.

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
