This Holiday Inn is in the cluster of hotels and motels that are close to and serve the Mayo Clinic. It is very close to the main cluster of Mayo buildings and many if not most of the people who stay here probably have something to do with Mayo--a patient, visiting a family member, attending a meeting, a sales call etc.
The pros for this property is that it is a full service hotel and very convenient to Mayo. It is appropriately priced for the level of service and the quality of the hotel.
The cons: it is old and in the past it has not been as well managed as it could have been. Right now it is in transition. It will be interesting to see what it is like when both the business processes and the environment are upgraded--and when I stayed here at the end of August there was a rennovation under way, although it seems like this won't impact the rooms, just the common spaces.
I have stayed here at least a half dozen times and tried 4 or 5 other properties in the area. This Holiday Inn is a bit tired but it has the best balance of convenience and price in the immediate area. No doubt I will stay here again.
