I stayed here in July 2014. While visiting family in hospital.The clerks were very friendly and helpful.I observed front desk clerk dusting front lobby furniture. Another time he was folding laundry.. They stay busy.The room was very comfortable.The breakfast bar stayed full.This hotel is worth the money I will be back if i am in this area again.

Room Tip: The room with king size bed and recliner is very nice for a couple.

My wife and I were in Rochester, Minnesota to visit the Mayo Clinic. The staff at the Econo Lodge were very helpful in a number of ways. They helped us use the excellent shuttle service that we used for our visits to the various locations at the Mayo Clinic. Also, they were very helpful when we had to adjust the length of our stay based on our appointments at the clinic. Furthermore, they had many good ideas for both local area dining and attractions to visit in the free time between appointments. Jens and Steve were especially helpful!

I stayed here with my family one night in June 2014 while coming back from the Black Hills of South Dakota. I was a bit worried about staying for one night with my husband and kids because they do not have a pool but we ended up being very happy with our stay.

The customer service at this hotel was excellent. There were young men who checked us in and out and they were wonderful. Much better than many of the adults we encountered at other hotels on our vacation! I believe this is a family run hotel, and you can totally tell that they are invested in making their hotel stand out above the rest--it definitely does!

The breakfast area is quite big so it is nice for families who may need more room to eat in the morning. We got to the breakfast area a bit late but still had plenty to eat.

The rooms were small but were very clean and tidy. My kids loved the towel in the bathroom which was made into an elephant! Very simple but a very nice touch!

The hotel also had a great little outdoor patio area that I wish we could have used but did not have time to.

There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance and also a Perkins next door.

We would definitely stay here again in the future---pool or no pool!!!

My friend and I stayed at this Econo Lodge from June 18, 2014 to June 28, 2014 while having appointments at the Mayo Clinic. This hotel is owned by a husband and wife who are front and center, not in a back office. They must have an excellent training program because their entire staff, from front desk reps to kitchen staff to housekeeping were more than accommodating. Many mornings we asked for a late room cleaning because my sick friend had to sleep in. One night we were enjoying wine in the lobby with other guests we had met, and we needed both a wine opener, Jens, one of the front desk staff, opened more than one bottle of wine for us. Jens also would quietly refill the ice water dispenser with filtered water from the water cooler, water the plants, etc. He always went above and beyond the call of duty. Our room was clean, comfortable, and large enough for 2 women staying for 10 days, and the rate was one of the best we found in Rochester. There is a workout room available 24 hours, which came in handy. There is no pool or restaurant, but the breakfast selections had both fruit/yogurt/hard boiled eggs, as well as waffles, donuts and bagels. We highly recommend this hotel and will stay here again if we return to the Mayo Clinic.

Room Tip: If you need peace and quiet, ask for a room at the back of the hotel, which abuts a residential stre...

This is the third time we have stayed in Rochester? We stayed three nights and will stay again when in town. The staff maybe on the younger side but so friendly and always with a smile. If you
Have any trouble with their free internet those young guys not only tell you, they will just do it for you and with a big smile. Some one is always right in the room for your breakfast to fill and clean up. Having that special coffee was an extra treat too. We recommend this motel 100 percent

This location far exceeded any expectation I had for an Econo Lodge. Rooms while small were clean and well cared for and silly little touches like towel animals were something I most definitely didn't expect.

Everything about our stay here was excellent and you can tell this location is run by a team that gets great service and value to the customer.

My husband and I had to spend a week in Rochester while my father was admitted to the Mayo Hospital. Not only were they super nice (LOVED the May Day basket on our door!) but it was perfect services for our stay. Free breakfast, laundry available, workout room and free shuttle to the Mayo, loved it! We had looked at other hotels that charge 40-50% more a night, but we didn'tt need a pool, and honestly, some of the higher priced places did not offer breakfast, After a week of being away from home, every meal saved helps. Liked that we had the fridge and microwave in the room, and for being as busy as it was during the week, we never had an issue with noise. Highly recommend this location to anyone who is visiting Rochester for Mayo Clinic. (Side note, really appreciated how they offered Mayo stay rates and weekly rates and was told both rates at check in and promised if the stay had to be extended, we would be given the best price. We ended up checking out short of a week, but the final price was much better than I expected.) Perfect location for business travelers, older couples or those who are traveling without children. (If our 7 year old would have been with, the lack of pool would not have been worth the savings.)

Room Tip: We almost were placed in a smaller room with only one queen sized bed, but when I informed Mike that...
