I recently spent three nights at the Red Carpet Inn during a trip to the Mayo Clinic. It is an older building with no luxuries--a truly basic, economy motel. It is very clean and quiet (unless you are there on a Friday night). The owners went above and beyond by graciously giving us some milk and yougart from their personal...

We stayed at the Red Carpet Inn for one night, as we had a wedding in Rochester. The motel is very average at the most, rooms had a standard bed. Check in was very easy and service was nice. The common areas and hallways are not Air conditioned which causes the building to smell very mildew and moist. The room...

My husband and I stayed at the Red Carpet Inn for 3 days while our son was a patient at the Mayo Clinic. We booked for 3 people, 2 queen beds, anticipating sharing with, first, our daughter and, later, a sister. The hotel/motel is not new or luxurious and the furnishings were a bit dated. The cooking facilities were limited...

Since my previous "go to" hotel in Rochester kept raising it's Mayo rate, I decided to give Red Carpet Inn a chance based on previous reviews, price, and value. I was not disappointed. I usually travel to Rochester with my son and arrive in the evening, stay one night, have an early morning appointment at Mayo, then check out. Our...
