We stay at Rochester South in Rochester, Minnesota regularly. They always have a helpful staff and nice accommodations. Lisa from the kitchen even came out to greet us like she always does. We like the access of the shuttle to the Mayo Clinic. This saves a lot of stress trying to find a parking place and fighting the weather.

The hotel was clean and rooms were nice. The breakfast was an extra added bonus and my daughter loved the cookies at night. Only suggestion would be updated mattress and bedding in room. Front desk personnel was friendly. Outside and grounds of hotel were nicely groomed.

Just a little tricky finding the road to the hotel, but once done; no problem! Very Friendly and efficient staff. Great restaurant at distance one can walk. Breakfast was good and well- organized for families who had to get an early start..

We are on the road in hotels 4-5 days a week, and stay here at least monthly. It is our favorite of all the places we stay. The rooms etc. are comfy and the breakfast good. The pool is a fine hotel pool. But it is the people that make it extra special. Everyone from management to housekeeping are friendly...

We were greeted with warm cookies, and available was a bowl of fruit, hot teas, and hot chocolate. The staff was very friendly. The room was clean, large suite with a door that would separate the sleep area from the rest of the unit. They offer free shuttle service to the Mayo Clinic, and the reason we were in town....

Upon checking in, the front desk had fresh, warm cookies. Check in was a breeze. The room decor was contemporary and clean. Exactly what we expected. I didn't use the pool but the hot tub was nice. The breakfast buffet was awesome with real glass plates and silverware. Fresh fruit cut up, lots of choices for hot food. All fresh...
