Wonderful people, helpful, friendly, efficient, housekeeping process needs some attention. I was there with a large group--the front desk and maintenance staff were very friendly and helpful in fulfilling a few requests we had. I especially had a good relationship with Brittany and Navada--they are top-notch employees.

Carpet was sticky and dirty in our room. The beds were extremely uncomfortable. My husband and I had a sleepless night. We just couldn't wait to leave in the morning, skipping the shower and coffee, we left at daybreak.

A sad place with the Kahler name on it. As a native son of Rochester, I grew up in the shadow of the Kahler Hotel in downtown Rochester. This motel is not worthy of the Kahler name. At check-in the waste baskets were still full from the last occupants, the carpet is scuzzy, drapes are dirty, couch is spotted, and... More

This is a very, very, very old property! We stayed here on Friday night, I'm not sure if they are going to " upgrade" or not, but our room was not, ( understatement). The dirtiest room I've stayed in EVER!! There was food all over the floor under the " couch" , bugs on the desk in the morning of... More

What a tired looking hotel. I didn't complain to the desk but will never return. Little gnats in the room, black spots on the ceiling, dirty damp carpet, lighting in bathroom area gross with dirt. Since I named my own price through Priceline I just bit my luck and dealt for the night. I know there is a warning posted... More

This is an excellent hotel. It was clean, large room and comfortable. The staff went out of their way to accomodate me. There is also a free shuttle to the Mayo Clinic. There is a shopping mall across the freeway and numerous resturants nearby. I would highly recomend a stay at this place.

Decent value, but rooms are musty and could be cleaner. Good location. It is described as connected to the mall, however, you have to walk across highway bridge to get there! Otherwise, it is within easy driving distance to mall, trader joe's and 5 mins drive to Mayo Clinic.

We have stayed at the Kahler Apache several times and have been very pleased each time. We would highly recommend this place to anyone who is visiting Mayo Clinic. It has a large pool area for kids and is very family oriented.
