“It felt like home.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

This was my second stay in three months. I was a caregiver to a family member who is a Mayo outpatient. The staff are right there to accommodate you with anything you need. I highly recommend Aspen Suites.

We spent a week and a half at Mayo in June 2014. The hotel is very convenient, just a 15 minute walk to downtown and right across the street from St. Mary's. It is right off the highway for easy access. The kitchenette was nice to have and breakfast was good. My daughter (21) said she liked it because it was homey!

My parents stayed here for 5 nights through Memorial Day this year. They said this hotel was wonderful! My Dad was there as he had to have heart surgery at Mayo Clinic. They said this is perfect spot for Mayo. Very convenient! The parking garage is safe and protected. My Mom felt very safe going home from the hospital at night. Thank you to Aspen for making my parents comfortable during a very hard time!!!

Room Tip: The studios are very helpful as you can make a meal each day. Nice grill outside on patio also.

Location is perfect for access to St. Mary's Hospital at Mayo. It is directly across the street from a hospital entrance. There is even a controlled walkway. It is a shorter walk from the hotel than from hospital parking - and no need to pay for Mayo parking.

The Aspen is a beautiful hotel - modern and well decorated. It always felt clean and fresh.

The amenities made a couple week stay very comfortable. Hot breakfast includes eggs, a couple meats, waffles, fruit, and more. Snacks are provided a couple nights a week. The kitchenette in the room included a fridge, freezer, stove, dishes and dishwasher. There is a laundry room with several free machines. DVD player with movie library was a nice touch.

The large desk and comfortable office chair in the room helped me get work done from the hotel.

Room Tip: It can be a long walk from the elevator on one side of the building to the rooms on the other side.

I've just booked our second stay at Aspen Suites, so that should say something. The rooms are nice with enough room to not feel "closed in", with reasonable kitchenettes and all you need to cook for extended stays. The breakfast is a bit better than typical, and there is also a good breakfast restaurant next door if you want a "full" breakfast. We'll likely end up making this our Mayo Clinic home away from home when we travel for medical care.

The Aspen Suites provided a quiet, comfortable and — for the Mayo Clinic area — affordable place to stay. It apparently has some age, but has been refurbished. Hallways are narrow and cramped when pushing luggage carts or handling big bags but honestly, nobody spends much time in the halls. The room was spacious and included a small kitchen, something very helpful for families of patients at Mayo. Aspen Suites are directly across the street from St. Mary's Hospital, a 15-minute walk to the main clinic area and shuttle buses pick up passengers at the front door. The staff was helpful and accommodating. I will visit the Mayo Clinic again and I will stay again at the Aspen Suites.

Room Tip: It's an old hotel so I would ask for a room on the fourth floor. I suspect those on the lower fl...

Staff was always friendly and helpful. The hotel is near restaurants and the hospital. The breakfast area is attractive and nice size and the complimentary breakfast has a nice variety. They have a convenient laundry room for guests.
