“Great Hotel- Great Staff- Won't go broke or feel dirty for Staying here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

My friend and I met in Rochester over the weekend. We wanted a decent place to stay with out going broke over a hotel room. This place was a real treat.

Extremely nice staff, clean hallways, room and bathroom. My friend even made a comment about wondering how often they wash their shower curtains becuase it looked brand new.

The breakfast was just what we needed for two ladies. It had make you own waffles, donuts, english muffin, dry crereal, oatmeal, hard cooked eggs, coffee and juice.

The staff was always friendly and offering help with directions. They were always working on something.. I think they have just been finishing an outdoor seating area.

You can tell the owners really care about this property. I would definately return and tell friends to stay here also.

The room was sparking clean, with nice furniture, fridge, micro. It was quiet, really quiet. The bed was soo comfortable. The staff helped me out of several problems i'd created for my self. The new fridge didn't work well and they replaced it immediately and gave me credit to eat at neighboring restaurant for the food i'd lost. It's so good to know that anytime i have to return, which i do, i am set up in the best place for best price, with best staff! No more searching and wondering.

Very pleasant stay while visiting Rochester overnight. This hotel is the cheapest you will find in the area but does not compromise on quality whatsoever. They earned a 2012 award for outstanding service and rightfully deserve it; comfortable beds, great coffee, and exceptional continental breakfast made our weekend getaway so enjoyable. It is adjacent to Perkin's and within a five-minute drive of everything remarkable in Rochester. Highly recommend it!

Room Tip: If you require any sort of disability services, make sure to request a room on the first floor since...

We had an appointment in Rochester, Mn at the Mayo Clinic. We have visited Mayo many times but have never stayed at the Econo Lodge but thought we would try it on this visit. We were not disappointed. It has such a friendly staff that help make your stay great. The rooms are on the small side but very clean and nice. The continental breakfast had very good choices to pick from. They have a shuttle that runs to the clinics and hospital. We will definitely stay there again if we have to visit Rochester. The beds were very comfortable.

My daughter and I traveled to the Mayo Clinic during the last week of August, 2012. Our stay at the Econo Lodge South was very nice; the rates were excellent for the accommodations we received. Each morning began with a breakfast that offered a wide variety of choices followed by a ride on the free, hourly shuttle bus service to and from the clinic. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. You couldn't have asked for more. Our beds were comfortable and the rooms clean. It was in a safe neighborhood, and no noise was noticed from the highway out front where our room was located. A friend of ours who had stayed there twice recommended it to me, and I highly recommend this facility to you if you are in Rochester visiting Mayos. By the time you take into consideration the Mayo discount, the cost of breakfast, and the parking fees saved by using the five-minute shuttle bus ride, it was indeed an Econo Lodge.

Room Tip: There was no elevator for the second floor.

We stayed here on August 21st. We were going to the Bob Dillon concert at the civic center.
We stay at the Choice Hotels whenever possible. This was our first Econo Lodge and we
will be back. It is an award winning hotel. We could see why. I read all the other reviews and
it is true. It is very clean, the beds are comfy, the breakfast is very good. The staff is very
friendly and make you feel welcome. It is very close to John Hardys BBQ one of our favorite
places to eat. Perkins is also very close. You can walk right over. We will be back here in
October for an appointment at the Mayo. The shuttle takes you over. I have to mention
the A/C is by far one of the best. It is quiet and you can adjust it so the fan will run constantly
and you won't hear the machine turn off and on. Which gives me a good night sleep.

Room Tip: They do not have an elevator. It is two levels. The staff is very helpful to tell you about this wh...
