Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Rochester South, MN

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is only accessible by going further South than needed and taking a back road. The side we got put on is the highway side and it sounded like traffic went through the room (very noisy!!). The pool was VERY chilly - hot tub was nice temp. We need to make follow-up visits to Mayo over the next six months. Will be staying somewhere else.

Would stay there again. Breakfast OK. Nice to have cookies and fresh fruit in the lobby 24/7

I had to go to Rochester for a medical appointment. This was a wonderful place to stay. The room was spacious and was near a marvelous restaurant called Whistle Binkies in the Lake. I would definitely stay her again!

My favorite thing about this hotel was the tavern walking distance down the road, Whistle Binkie's. If you're a beer lover this place had the hugest selection I've ever seen. Hotel wise, good value, clean, and a free hot breakfast (though not too elaborate).

We stayed at this hotel for a wedding. It has everything a hotel normally has. Beds, bathroom, A/C, pool & hottub, breakfast. However, our room had a musty smell and we found old food in the air-conditioner. Also, this hotel is on the edge of town. If you're looking to do things in town, I wouldn't stay at this hotel.

Country Inn's are great motels we try to stay at them whenever we travel.

was very nice staff was helpful . i would stay again pool and hot tube were very relaxing

Very nice motel but I didn't care for the location. Also we told the staff that the key card didn't work easily and that was frustrating when wanting to enter our room. Great breakfast-free too.

Was very nice and clean .staff was very nice deal with .the breakfast was also great

Very friendly staff and clean rooms. I would certainly recommend this place for anyone who is visiting Mayo Clinic

The check-in and check-out process was slow. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was quick and tasty.

The hotel was fair. The smell of smoke in my non-smoking room was a bit uncomfortable. The halls were not very clean but not terrible. It was worth the inexpensive rate though. They allowed my brother to charge his electric car with out any hassle which was a plus also.

quiet, comfortable, roomy, here for a family reunion, good breakfast. better deal than ext. stay across the street.

Needed to stay over the night before a VB tourney. Kids enjoyed the pool.

The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly. If you are looking for a clean room in a quite hotel, this is it. There is a shuttle service at this hotel that makes trips to the mayo clinic easy and stress free.

This was a nice hotel just a few miles from the Mayo Clinic. It was easy to find and a great value!

Staff was friendly and helpful. Room cleanliness was on okay - could have been better.

Checking in was a breeze and the staff was very friendly and helpful in answering some questions about the area and hotel amenities. I had forgotten to ask about the hotel rewards program at check-in so, as checking out I was informed that since we booked through third party we were not eligible. This was a bit disappointing considering we have stayed at other hotels and they still give credit for our stay. Still a good overnight stay and we'd consider it again for our next visit.

Staff was friendly and very helpful. Room was large with the suite attached and the continental breakfast was more than enough. Our room was quiet and we were able to adjust the temperature so it was cool at night.

The building is built poorly as it is very noisy. i could hear toilet flush above and neighbors to the side. i could hear people walk accross the floor upstairs as well. The rooms need more sound proofing. Staff and breakfast was very good.
