“Only motel we stay at”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014 via mobile

We come to Rochester for doctor appointments and this is the only motel we will stay at now. Nice rooms. Soft beds and the kids love the pool area. Nice breakfast and they are always restocking it. Friendly employees

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

The hotel is attached to a Famous Daves, so everything smells like BBQ. The smell permeates all the way to the other end of the motel. The room is large, but my first impression was dirty. The room may have been clean, the sheets seemed clean, but the overall feeling was dirty. I did not want to touch the bed spreads, I can only imagine the stains visible on black light. I never took my shoes off as the carpet appeared very worn and dirty. The bathroom is in need of a major overhaul. The porcelain in sink is chipped and worn away. The water presure was good, and the towels substanial. I was glad I was only staying one night.

Room Tip: As far from the front door as possible unless you love smelling BBQ

Front desk gentleman was very nice and told us about breakfast, pool hours, discounts at nearby restaurants, etc. Room was spacious and clean - loved the fluffy towels! Pool stays open late which is nice after a long day - great hot tub! Next time will ask for a couple extra pillows as there were only 2 on the bed.

we had a 2 week stay at guesthouse due to mayo clinic visits, guesthouse was great! best prices - good service - great employees! Demetrious and Linda both went out of their way to help us in our time of need. these two are excellent employees and well deserving of commendation. If we ever go back to Mayo, Guesthouse would be our choice.

We were stressed out because of the emergency situation for visiting Rochester, but Demetrius showed us first class attention thru-out our stay...we were a group from St. Paul and Salt Lake City, so he had a lot to handle...thank you Demetrius!

We got into our room and it smelled like spearmint or more precisely like that ring in urinals. We couldn't find where or why but it was so strong our eyes burned. We called the front desk to change rooms and when I picked up the phone is was sticky. Yuk. See picture. We were able to switch rooms but I felt that the carpet was...ewe. We had a dog and I wonder if they keep pets on the first floor and so they don't really care about the carpet? I am allergic to cats and I could feel the allergy coming on in the second room but I survived. The first floor is the only floor I saw. The breakfast area was nice. There was a great area for pets right behind the hotel. Pool was ok. Kids enjoyed. Location is good for quick access to HWY 52, restaurants and grocery store.

Room Tip: Not on the first floor.

We have stayed at the Rochester Guesthouse International Inn several times now, and have always been pleased with the clean accomodations, and friendly, helpful staff. If there is ever a need, they are eager to meet it. We have used the free shuttle service to Mayo Clinic from the hotel, and am grateful that the hotel provides that to it's customers.

Room Tip: Ground level rooms are easier for those with disabilities to navigate, there is an elevator, but lo...
