We have stayed here 4 times per year for the last nine years due to Mayo appointments. We deviated from this about a year ago due to their need for updates in the facility & furnishings. We recently returned & this will, once again, become our 'home away from home". My husband has always detested sofa beds but, for medical... More

I have stayed at Country Inn and Suites in Rochester many times since bringing my son to Mayo clinic. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The long pool hours make it possible to enjoy the pool and hot tub after a long day at the clinic and early in the morning before it gets busy. The breakfast bar is... More

As always all staff is very friendly and courteous! Rooms are clean. I stay at this hotel every week and every time I am met with the same welcoming staff. I use the whirlpool almost every time I come and it is always well maintained and clean.

In July/Aug 2016, there are renovations taking place that should put this hotel in the upper tier within the chain. Staff is very nice. Parking lot is big and well lit. Real silverware and dishes for breakfast were super! However, when entering the room, it smelled like a smoker just left it. Front desk commented that the hotel has been... More

Stayed here late July 2016 for one night and had no problems. This was during a time the hotel was undergoing some renovations, yet the lobby and elevator area were still clean, a hard thing to accomplish if you have ever done any renovations at your home!
