“Convenient and nice place”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

I stayed here during a training at Mayo clinic because of the kitchen facilities and the shuttle. I was not dissapointed because the room was large and well furnished. It was quiet and I was able to read. The Famous Dave is an experience you shouldnt miss. The food is excellent. The maids may sometimes miss cleaning some areas but they promptly correct anything you want them to. The breakfast was average but okay. Overall I will stay there anytime I am in Rochester.

Only 1 mile to the Mayo Clinic, this hotel is very convienent for those traveling to the area for treatment at the Mayo. We stayed on the 3rd flr and the room was quite large. Also used the pool and hot tub, both of which were large and very relaxing. Very good rates so ask for the Mayo discount. Room was comfortable, but the furniture was outdated, showing much wear. Did appreciate the nice flat screen TV. Bathroom was small and with no hooks of any kind, couldn't hang up a bathrobe or sleepwear. A hook would be easy enough to install. Hotel does offer wireless internet, but the signal was so bad, I literally could not use my laptop and mine is brand new. Other guests were overheard commenting on the wireless signal as well.

Lots of places to eat very close by with Famous Dave's being attached to the hotel. Good parking. My biggest complained would be that the outside entrance we used had a card lock that was not working and anyone could just enter this entrance without a card. This was not acceptable at all and I am glad we only stayed 2 nights because of this.

I would stay here again but not unless I knew that door was secured.

We stayed here because it was cheap and near Mayo. Our reservation quickly changed from 3 nights to one night - mainly because of cleanliness. We didn't take our shoes off ever. The floors just kind of grossed us out and the bathroom floor was sticky. The guy at the reception desk was very nice but, that doesn't completely make-up for the hotel. We will not be staying here when we make a trip back to Rochester in June.

Went to Rochester during a family emergency and needed t quickly find a place to stay. I was surprised to fine so many places near St. Mary's Hospital very expensive. Searching further, I found Guest House Inn only a mile away with nice amenities and a fair price. Rooms were large and quiet, the continental breakfast good with a wide variety of food and convenient to major highways, Mayo Clinic and St. Mary's. WiFi was free and had great connections where ever you were in the hotel. There was a refrigerator, microwave and flat screen TV.

Room Tip: Third floor was quiet with elevator access.

We only stayed here one night but it was comfortable enough. The price was good, they have alot of amenities that other extended stay places don't for the same price range and staff was really nice and helpful.

I really look forward to staying at the guest house. The rooms are clean and the staff is helpful. The guest house is not far from the hospital and Mayo Clinic. The rooms are comfortable and affordable. Famous dave's is a great place to eat, located on the Guest house property. I like the discount you recieve from a few local restaurants when you stay at the Guest house. I feel at home when my family and I have to stay for extended stays.

We chose this hotel based on reviews on tripadvisor and our experience lined right up with that of other reviewers. Clean, nothing fancy, moderately priced, friendly staff. Very spacious room, which we really liked, rather than the more common narrow tunnel-like entrance to a room which is often found. Fridge-microwave combination, hair dryer, coffeemaker, WiFi. Furniture a little dated and worn, but we weren't looking for 4 star atmosphere. Direct access to Famous Dave's Barbeque restaurant which was handy and delicious. Easy access to US Highway 52. Outstanding continental breakfast with HB eggs, waffles, pastries, fruit, cold cereal and milk, coffee, tea and hot chocolate, yogurt, toast and attentive staff.
