We stayed with Viola Suites for 6 weeks in February/March of 2016 and found the unit to be very nice and comfortable and very well equipped. It is so much more than a motel room! Less than 10 minutes from Mayo Clinic, we found it to be very convenient. The manager, Judy, is very personable and helpful, and very concerned... More

Behind the suites is Quarry Hill Nature Center-- a large nature center with lovely acreage. The suites are well-equipped and easily accessed. The owner, Dennis, and manager, Judy, both... More

Best place for a Mayo Clinic stay. Well I'm back again, but this time I spent the extra time to explore options around where to stay. I was here before for two months and stayed at a nice hotel. The noise in the hallway, doors slamming, people talking, and kids screaming as they ran to the pool disrupted my sleep.... More

I can't say enough, Thank You. A life long friend of mine was going to Mayo Clinic for a extended procedure. The doctors said she could be there for a months or more. Her family ask if I would look at places to stay. I visited Rochester for a day exploring seven extended stay hotels and short term housing possibilities.... More

We recently completed treatment for my husband at the Mayo Clinic. While there we stayed from mid September to mid November 2013 at the Viola Suites. It is less than a ten minute drive from Mayo and a very easy one. The suites offer a neighborhood feeling as opposed to a hotel kind of experience. There is ample parking in... More

We stayed in Viola Suites in 2012 and in 2013 and hope to return in the future. The suites we stayed in were comfortable, clean, and very well equiped. In addition the location is excellent. Close to Mayo, and the Quarry Hill Nature reserve which is excellent for hiking and they have many animals on display. Great for children and... More

Judy is an incredible host at Viola Suites. We were there for a month on a visiting rotation at Mayo Clinic and are now certain we want to move to Rochester, MN.
