“Very nice..but on the smallish side”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

My parents stayed here a month while my dad had a transplant at Mayo. They were very happy with the hotel, from the friendly housekeepers to the fact they allow pets.

The place is updated and clean and the shuttle service was very handy for the many clinic appointments they needed to get to.

The free covered parking was also a nice benefit. The only issue was that the one bedroom suite was a tad cramped. It really isn't much bigger than a typical hotel room that has been sectioned off.

The smallest thing about it was the bathroom. The commode and tub/shower are separate from the sink and vanity and even my 95 pound mother found the bathroom so tiny that she lost her balance navigating the tight spaces and fell partways into the tub.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel.

This hotel is close to the Mayo Clinic. We stayed in a suite with two Queen size beds. It has a stove, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, and sink. There are two TV's. They have free laundry and a great free breakfast and coffee. For coffee lovers there is a Caribou Coffee shop next door and great restaurants. We are coming back in August to the Mayo and will be staying here again.

I just spent two weeks at Aspen Suites while my son had open heart surgery at St. Mary's Hospital. Aspen is very conenient to the hospital. It was less than a 10 minute walk from his room to ours. The rooms are generally comfortable and clean. The staff was very helpful and accomodating. There is washers and dryers available at no cost and breakfast in the morning is adequate. The biggest complain I had was the odors throughout the hallways and stairwells. Smelled like a dirty sock or a nursing home. The rooms (I stayed in 3 different rooms over the two weeks) did not have a significant odor however. Generally pretty good.

This hotel was great! It is located downtown next to the hospital, and restaurants and has a very friendly staff! The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen comes with almost everything you need. I would definitely recommend this hotel for business or pleasure.

We stayed there while attending an LPN Clinical Review Conference at Mayo Clinic. I liked that it had free shuttle service to Mayo Clinic. It was located close to everything! I liked the free hot breakfast and the friendly staff. The place was very cozy, warm and inviting! I also like that it had an underground garage to park your car. It was very secure and it was nice to have my car inside. The staff were very professional and genuinely cared about our needs. I would recommend this place to my friends and family! Aspen Suites is a beautiful place!

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!
