“Convenient, but a rip-off”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012 via mobile

My husband is having a procedure at Mayo. Very convenient since it's across the street. The modest room cost 164.&tax. And, NO FREE BREAKFAST, like every other hotel in the world these days. There is a restaurant in the lobby. The Bistro is pathetically slow. We waited ten minutes before someone came to take a drink order...30 minutes for dinner to arrive. The servers took forever to get to other tables just to say hello. I was watching intently and it wasn't that busy. The "Market" store adjacent doesn't have anything healthy to snack on, especially for a hospital hotel. I would probably stay here again for the convenience, but would eat dinner elsewhere...and bring healthy snacks.

I am very sorry that you did not feel the hotel was a great value for the money. The Courtyard by Marriott hotel brand does not offer free breakfast. We do have a great Bistro that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner so that you do not have to leave the hotel if you choose. We also Proudly Brew Starbucks. I was very surprised by your comments about the slow service in the restaurant. We typically get great reviews about our service. I am very sorry and have shared your comments with the Bistro staff so this will not happen again. I will look at the offerings we have in the market and increase the number of healthy items we offer. I am very sorry your service was not what was expected but I am glad you will stay with us again.

This is a nice place to stay. Very clean, comfy beds, friendly staff and though its located by Mayo Clinic there is no relation to the hospital and you still have that feeling that your staying at a hotel. Great amenities, flat screen TV, wifi service is free, speedy and most importantly the signal is very potent. Free 5 star breakfast. I mean its included... if you complain then you just need to get a life. It was yummy in my opinion. I got this deal on priceline for $57.00 a night plus taxes. Great overall experience. The only thing is that room service is not offered. That would be the only hiccup. Other than that....... yay!!!!

Adjacent to the Mayo Clinic, this is a friendly, clean and well-run establishment. I stayed there for only one night last week, and had a pleasant experience. I might have preferred a few more dining (or perhaps shopping) options near this hotel, but that shouldn't reflect poorly on the hotel itself.

A group of family and friends stayed at this hotel for a wedding, and it couldn't have been a better choice in spite of the fact we hardly stayed in the room for very long. We were greeted with a goody bag from the soon-to-be married couple, and the staff made sure we made it to our rooms okay later on. We saw the housekeepers a few times, and they were especially pleasant and friendly.

The decor of the room was perfect. It looked and smelled nice no matter when we entered. Everything was spotless. Really, I don't think the bedroom could have been any better than it was. The location was also perfect. It was in a quiet area, but it was close enough to the action for all of us to take care of wedding preparations and shopping.

The only downside to this hotel would be the breakfast "bar". It was pretty overpriced for the amount of food served. It really wasn't anything spectacular, but we wouldn't have even touched the "bar" had we not had to be on the road early in the morning to make it home before it got too late.

Besides that small detail, our stay was perfect. We'd love to come back for a less busy weekend.

I have no complaints! Beautiful hotel, great area, pleasant staff. The very good deal Priceline gave us made it even more incredible! We stayed here for one night before our cruise. I actually wish we could have stayed longer than one night so we could have enjoyed the pool.

This hotel has the nicest staff that I have encountered at any hotel. They were extremely helpful, accommodating and pleasant during our three day stay. The hotel is so convenient to Mayo especially if you have appointments at the Davis clinic. It is basically right across the street and there is a sidewalk to take you there. It is faster than parking in the Mayo parking garage. The rooms were nice and very well kept. The lobby area was a great place to sit and have coffee in the morning or drinks at night. There are newspapers for you to read and Tv's all over. The bistro was excellent and had starbucks coffee available. We had breakfast and it was delicious. We will visit this hotel again. It was a great place to stay if you have to be at Mayo!

The room is nice...it was clean, fairly spacious, and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was quite well laid out also. Unfortunately we were placed next to a back exit area where people went in and out, and also we were near some type of generator or piping so the noises were a bit distracting and irritating. I had to run the ac at a very low temperature at night to drown out the background disturbances, and for the price we were paying that's not cool at all! Asking for a room away from elevators/exits/generators would have been better.

But the real reason for bringing the rating down from 4 stars to 3 is because we couldn't have been much more disappointed with the poor quality of choice and the flat taste at the so called 'breakfast bar'. It was expensive, with few choices and not so great tasting foods. What ever happened to the good quality hotel that would include a nice tasty continental breakfast...would that have been too much to ask when the night costs more than $170.00?

Next time I will stay a couple of miles away from the Mayo Clinic in a decent hotel that charges no more than $100 and includes breakfast. The great location of this hotel doesn't make up for the pitfalls and the price.

I spent one night with you and I feel a bit used.
