My family and I stayed at the Ray Mar for a total of 8 days when my brother had cancer surgery. It was clean and convenient. We had 2 rooms for part of the time and used the big room in the corner as a home base the rest of the week.

I needed a reasonable accommodation near Mayo St. Mary's Hospital, and this was the perfect place for me. For a mere $50 per night I got a firm bed, a comfortable couch, a kitchenette with a microwave, refrigerator, sink, and table, and a nostalgic 50's bathroom with a large, deep tub. It was perfect for my needs. Not fancy, but... More

As others have reviewed, this is an older hotel, very basic, but cleaner than some much higher priced hotels I've stayed in. The hot water was hot and good pressure, the beds and bedding comfortable. If you don't have mobility issues, stay upstairs as the rooms are less used. Check in was quick and friendly. Good choice for a quick... More

Stayed at the Raymar twice now while my son was in the hospital. Manager is extremely helpful, rooms are clean, and it is located right around the corner from St. Mary's hospital. Unfortunately we spend alot of time in the hospital but the raymar makes it all a little easier and more convenient

I needed a place to sleep while my wife was in St. Mary's. I will stay somewhere else if I come back. Old furniture, old carpeting. Shower often alternates between too hot and too cold. Bed was not particularly comfortable. Went to the office for "free" breakfast each morning, but it was closed one morning, and there were no donuts... More

I stayed at the Raymar last week because I had family in the hospital. It's not exquisite or brand new. The prices are very reasonable and it reminded me of home. Nicole and Larry are amazing and go out of their way to help you. Excellent place!!

It is of course true what they say, you get what you paid for and we got what we expected. Stayed here for a couple nights while my husband had surgery at St. Mary's. First the good. The manager that checked us in was very friendly. Walked us to the room and showed us around. Very kind.The room was spotless!... More

It is close to St Mary's Hospital and convenient. The room was old and poorly furnished. Suppose it was clean enough. Would prefer to stay at another hotel; it is quick access to St Mary's if that is the only consideration.

We stayed at the RayMar in Rochester, Minn. two weeks ago. It is 1 block from St. Mary's .Right across the parking lot is Kentucky Fried Chicken and across the street is McDonalds. Right next door is an eating place also. The place was clean, pillows were good and so were the beds. Good water pressure and very hot water.... More
