“Awesome Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

This hotel is perfectly across from St Mary's right beside a Caribou and has a shuttle to any part of Mayo you need to go. The staff is great, the rooms are clean, and it is a very peaceful place to stay.

This hotel has a great location, right across from the hospital and an easy walk or drive (depending on season) to downtown. There is a free hot breakfast which basically consists of eggs and sausage, plus bagels, English muffins, and make it yourself waffles. The hotel looks like it was recently renovated. The showers are great and the rooms clean. The pool is nice and it has a nice, but small, fitness room. Parking is limited, but we still didn't have a problem finding a spot close by. The only bad thing is that the beds are hard. This seems to be a trend with Marriott lately though, so I don't know if this is a new bed they have switched to, but it is too hard for me. If you like an extremely firm bed, then you will have no problems.

A very normal stay. Clean rooms (oddly decorated, I will admit), clean public spaces, easy check-in (and friendly), plenty of parking, nice pool area, accessible business center, and a very good FREE breakfast. No complaints.

Room Tip: Upper floors. We were on the first floor and could hear a lot of walking above us, but it really wa...

We stayed here about 4 years ago and knew it would again be a good choice with my husband once again being a patient at St. Mary's Hospital right across the street. It was wonderful to be able to leave our vehicle in the hotel parking lot (FREE parking) and walk directly across the street to one of St. Mary's hospital buildings and walk "inside" to his room. The breakfast provided at the hotel was good and they were very accommodating with our "not sure" on check-out date. The inroom microwave and fridge were definitely handy to have -- I even bought a bag of popcorn in the little lobby "store" and enjoyed it in the room. Good wireless speed too!

Thank you for the wonderful review regarding your recent stay with us! We are very fortunate to be located so close to the hospital for our guests who are either patients themselves or have a loved one whom is. It is great to hear you were able to take advantage of our lobby convenience store and enjoyed some relaxing time in your guest room. We appreciate you choosing to stay with us! Thanks again for the 5 star review!

Room was pleasant and clean. Quiet, except for a bit of street noise. Pretty good choices for breakfast. In room microwave (paper plates and tableware in the oven), mini-fridge, bar sink.
Good wireless speed. All in all a good bargain in a good location.

We were visiting a family member at St. Mary's, (part of the Mayo Clinic. This is just what the doctor ordered (if I dare say that). We we arrived in town we parked our car in their "free" parking lot, and it stayed their until we left town. When you walk out of their front door, directly across the street is a hospital. Seriously... it was less than a half a block. The weather was cool, but that short walk could be done in any type of weather.
They have a hot breakfast that hits the spot.
The room was super clean, and very comfortable. Quiet and peaceful nights sleep after a very trying day.

Stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel is conveniently located right across the street from Saint Mary's Hospital at Mayo Clinic. The room was clean and had a small kitchenette with microwave, mini-fridge, and sink. The hotel staff was very helpful, and allowed for extra guests in the room.

Internet was included, but the it was very slow. A "hot" breakfast was also included, but it was pretty basic.
