Very professional, very accommodating hotel. Free and very speedy shuttle to Mayo was awesome!! Could concentrate on what you needed to at Mayo and not have to worry about driving,parking,etc. The Twigs restaurant was great also. Complimentary breakfast was also adequate, something for everyone. Would definitely recommend

Got to the hotel, had to change room - non smoking room reaked of smoke. Second room bed sheet torn. Notice that cleaning limited on July 4, no one cleaned room on July 3. Wifi connection crap. TV hardly worked. Everyday had to get room key reset. Told manager, owner never bothered to contact me or refund stay.

If it weren't for the shuttle we would probably stay at a different hotel closer to the Gondola building of the Mayo. It's a great hotel to stay at! It just doesn't look as new as a holiday inn or anything because it's an older building but all the staff is nice and they have rocking chairs in the rooms... More

We stayed here for 4 days (2 rooms for most of the stay). Its location is ideal, and its shuttle service to Mayo is great (thanks, drivers!). Rooms are decent size with nice beds. TV is a bit old and lacks channel guide. We used the modest pool and very nice hot tub. Staff are very accommodating. There are nearby... More

The queen size murphy bed allows this to be a two room suite. Wonderful when traveling for two adults to have their own space and TV. Kitchenettes in every room fully equipped is really nice.

We have stayed two different times. One was for 12 days and one has been for 5 days. We stayed in an apartment style room with queen bed and then a Murphy bed.

We have been and will continue to be visiting Mayo Clinic and have been looking for a great place, close in, to stay when we're here. This one is not it. The rooms are large, but wear and tear is obvious. The maids had done a good job of cleaning the rooms, but there were dust bunnies in the hallways... More

My room was clean and close to pet green spaces with waste clean up supplies. The pet fee is reasonable and staff are very accommodating with great suggestions of other pet friendly places in the area to play or visit.
