Room was cleaned well everyday (we stayed one week). We had a room by the pool - unless you like lots of noise until 10:00-10:30 every night don't stay in one of those rooms. The bathroom was ridiculously small.

Today's question is: What gives a hotel three stars? If three stars means the lobby looks spacious, ritzy, and like a bellhop is about to come around the corner to help you with luggage... If it means the rooms are a bit bigger, with nicer bedding, furniture and gold- or silver-painted frames around abstract wall hangings... If it means the... More

The staff was friendly, but the hotel is run down and needs some work...not worth the price and breakfast is not included and you have to pay for parking too. It is a great location to walk the skyway and do shopping or get to Mayo Clinic.

The outside entrance on Broadway promised so much, but once inside, where does one go? Up the elevator? On an escalator? Down a hall? There was no bellman and no one at the sad-looking welcome desk there, so after meditating on the sparse signage, we decided to try our luck with the elevator, and eventually found the hotel check-in on...

Stayed in this old Holiday Inn one night as we were in the area. Comfortable beds, updated linens, but the entire building could use a makeover. Still the same as it was 40 years ago. The parking also leaves something to be desired. No off-street except the ramp, for which there is a charge. The location is dynamite - right... More

This hotel is extremely close to mayo clinic. Proximity is the reason we chose. The hotel is definitely in need of updating, however the room was clean and perfectly fine for a budget choice for one night right by mayo.

We were in Rochester to take our child to Mayo Clinic. For our first visit here we just wanted a reasonably priced hotel and close to the clinic. As IHG members we just found the first available. Was a little grossed out over the mold/mildew in the shower.
