We were under considerable stress for our first visit to Mayo. The staff was friendly, the cookies and hot chocolate in front lobby were enjoyed and the shuttle was just "one less thing to worry about". The room was clean, quiet and we slept VERY well! The beds and pillows were comfortable and in our opinion that is the most...

Okay stay, but the building just seemed "tired." The carpeting in our room was worn and in need of shampooing. Would recommend a bit of spiffing-up. The staff were friendly. Complimentary fresh cookies and coffee in the lobby were a nice touch. However, if I need lodging for more than an overnight in Rochester again, I'll likely look elsewhere.

I have never written a hotel review before but was promoted to do so as we were quite disappointed by our stay. The price for this hotel was steep compared to many in the area and I don't believe was worth the price. Our room was not clean when we arrived - sticky/dirty tables, bathroom mirror very splattered, sink full...

Our room was very nice.I liked the decor. It had a comfortable bed. Breakfast was awesome! Loved that there was shuttle service to May- parking around the clinic is limited & ramps are definitely spendy! Very friendly staff

We were encouraged by the friendly staff and the fresh-baked cookies and hot tea/coffee at the front desk. The hot tub was perfect - hot! The breakfasts were great each morning! The manager lit the outdoor fire pit, and we roasted s'mores - in March!
