“OMG TBISC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

When the elevator doors close you see a poster of a teenager on a bed texting OMG TBISC, meaning This Bed is So Clean. It made my teenage daughter laugh and to her pleasure her bed was SO clean! Clean rooms, clean sheets, and best of all a clean duvet or comforter cover....which puts to rest my usual horrors of pulling up a bedspread snored upon by dozens of previous visitors.

The staff was extremely friendly and made us laugh. The breakfast buffet had cheesy omelets for low-carb lovers, as well as the usual cereal and waffles. The pool was nice and overall, the place lived up to it's TripAdvisor ratings.

It's on the north edge of town, making it convenient for drivers coming in from the Twin CIties, but it was several miles from downtown.

Stay again? Yup. Nice place.

Thanks for the kind comments, we loved having you stay with us!! The Cloud Nine bed does away with the old-fashioned bedspread, featuring instead a crisp, white duvet cover, enveloping a lofty white comforter. The white sheets are 200-thread count with a fitted
bottom sheet. Thanks again!! Come on back soon.

Another great weekend in Rochester MN at the Hampton Inn & Suites. My family and I have stayed at this location numerous times and the overall service is excellent. The staff is always great to us and they seem to enjoy working at the Hampton Inn. We will definitely be back if the opportunity arises.

This is a nice, clean hotel with a compassionate staff. As it is in Rochester, many guests are in town to visit the Mayo Clinic, so an understanding staff is a real plus. Everyone from the shuttle driver to people cleaning were friendly and helpful. The location is a little far from Mayo, but the door-to-door shuttle was wonderful. Parking in downtown Rochester around the clinic is not easy sometimes, so shuttles are the way to go...especially when the wind chill was -35. They have a Mayo Clinic rate, so call them directly and ask about it. The beds were very comfortable and the breakfast had a variety of choices. I'd stay here again.

Thanks so much for staying with us on your recent Rochester visit and also the kind comments about our staff. We try our best to make things as comfortable as possible for our guests at the hotel. The shuttle is a key part of our success, our guests enjoy the advantages of our exclusive Hampton Inn & Suites-North Van. It is a 10-12 minute trip to the front door of the Mayo/Gonda building. Thanks again!

My daughter and I stayed here while she was undergoing testing at the Mayo Clinic. The hotel was quiet and the staff was superb. The shuttle service was so wonderful and did their best to pick us up quickly. The room was very clean and the pool was wonderful. Thank you!

We live in Texas but come up here a couple times a year to visit our granddaughter. e always stay at this hotel. Never disappointed. Rooms are always clean and front desk people always friendly. Breakfast have improved greatly, love the glazed donuts! The rooms are lacking only one thing, a safe.

Thanks for the nice comments! Always enjoy having you stay with us. We are always trying to change and improve our breakfast items, Did you get a chance to try the oatmeal with the different topping options? As far as the safe goes, we do offer a 2-key safe system in our office. It is similar to a safety deposit box you see at a bank. When are you coming back?

We stay here when coming to Mayo Clinic/Hospital as many other guests staying at this hotel. The staff is outstanding. They can't do enough for you. The shuttle service to and from appts is great. We are unfamiliar with the area and it's awesome having the shuttle take you right to the door of where you have your appointments. When you're done, you call the hotel and they come and pick you up at the door. Don't have to worry about finding the clinic or hospital, a place to park, paying for parking. Door to door service at no cost except please tip the driver. I see most people don't and that makes me feel bad. My husand had a 4 hour operation at St Mary's, released the next day, shuttle picked us up at hospital door and returned us to the hotel. They helped me with all that I asked. The hotel location is a little way out of downtown so you don't hear the ambulances and helicopter. Highly recommend... you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: If you are staying because of Mayo Clinic or hospital stay be sure to mention at time of reservation...

My husband and I stayed here on our wedding night, as a wedding present from my father. When we came in around 1am, still in our dress and tux, the night manager was already at the front desk. The night manager was extremely friendly and helpful. After a very long day for both of us, we just wanted to relax and despite it being closed, the night manager let us into the pool. The room was large (king suite), the bed was comfortable and the breakfast was pretty good.

The only problem that I had with the hotel is that we were charged $10 for incidentals, which was for one hanger that I took for my wedding dress. Overall though, it was a great stay and I would definately stay there again.

Thanks for the kind words and congratulations on the wedding!! I discussed the $10 charge you received with our Front Desk Manager. We are thinking that it was only an authorization for incidentals and should have been credited back to your account within 72 hours of checking out. If it was not credited back, please give us a call and we will correct it. Thanks again!
