Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Rochester, MN

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Walls and lampshades were stained and room had an odd odor. Breakfast was not very good.

I have stayed numerous times at this particular Country Inn & Suites for the very reasons in categories listed above. I recommend others to try it and plan on staying there myself when next occasion arises!

Room was quiet, location convenient, easy access to highway and downtown.

Overall, the staff did a great job. The rooms met our expectations and we would stay there again.

Was in town to visit a very sick relative at St. Mary's Hospital. The hotel provided a good clean and comfortable environment during a very difficult family crisis. While had to drive to reach hotel, was very conveniently located in relation to the Hospital, and value was good especially compared to hotels closer to the hospital.

Room was clean, staff was friendly, and location is good

Nice like most Country Inns. Only issue was heater/AC didn't work.

Our room was clean and adequate. Location good for food and highway access. Patches on the wall in bathroom. Breakfast muffins old. Nice bowl of fruit in the lobby. An older site. Have stayed at other Country Inn and Suites that were nicer.

Don't leave anything in the fridge because they won't let you get it once you check out...

We stayed there for the Mayo Clinic and also for leisure. The hotel was fine overall; the free breakfast was great. The room wasn't perfect; there was dust on the lamps and fixtures; the sink was chipped and part of the wallpaper in the bathroom was ripped, but this didn't really bother me too much. The hotel was quiet, the bed was comfortable and it was close to restaurants and shopping and there was even a Kwik Trip right across the street which was very convenient; also minutes from downtown Rochester and Apache Mall.

Everything was fine

Check-in was very smooth but the hotel rooms were not clean. There was dust on all the furniture, used soap bars in the shower, there was stuff on the sheets on the bed. Cleaniness was the main issue. there was some noise during the evening but that went away by bedtime. Rooms were nice except for the cleaniness issue.

Great Location. Close to shopping/restruants. Shuttle to the Mayo was great and always on time. Would definitely stay there again on our next trip to the Mayo Clinic. Best price around.

Check in was not pleasant. I thought I had reserved 2 rooms with 2 beds each. When I found I had only one bed in each room, the hotel clerk [...] stated he had rooms with 2 beds available but could not make any changes to my reservations since I went through Orbitz. He was not helpful at all. I called Orbitz and had to wait a long time before I got connected to the right person. Then I had that person talk to [...], using my cell phone, to tell [...] the reservations could be changed. I had to pay an extra $10 for each room even though the online reservation site indicated a room with 2 beds went for the same price as a room with one queen bed. I was delayed in getting checked in and in getting my guests checked in (I reserved 3 rooms through Orbitz). I was very frustrated by this experience and will probably not use Orbitz again for this reason.
