Room was average for this class of hotel. Carpets are showing age. Room and bath were very clean. A/C system fair. Included breakfast was above average choices and quality. Not sure I would pay full price to stay at this location, but was pleased with the value I received using Carlson points.

The room, staff and the hotel were perfect! My wife and I really enjoyed the in-room Jacuzzi tub. We had a wonderful, relaxing night's sleep, and a really delicious breakfast in the morning before our departure.

Country Inn & Suites Rochester South is a great place to stay. It's always clean and staff are friendly and helpful! Breakfast was very good too. You'll love it and it's close to everything. We came for Mayo and it's south of town but not far at all to get to downtown, the mall, the clinic, etc.

Bathroom is freezing cold. Had to prop the bathroom door open in the hopes to warm it up. Ceiling fan was so loud that I had to turn it off. Couldn't use the hot tub because the same group of guys were in there drinking for about 3 hours. Breakfast was a nice variety. Warm cookies when you check in.

I can understand your frustrations regarding not being able to enjoy the hot tub due to other guests using it for an extended period of time. We appreciate your comments so we know...

In Rochester for appointment at Mayo. Suite was roomy and comfortable. Lots of breakfast choices. Check in and out was efficient due to Quinn. The shuttle to Mayo makes this hotel an excellent choice.
