Residence Inn by Marriott Rochester Mayo Clinic Area

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The room was large and clean. The staff was friendly. Overall it was a great stay. The Residence Inn is about the best place to stay if receiving care at Mayo Clinic. Pressing the "S" button on the elevators takes you to an underground walkway to all the Mayo buildings as well as the nearby Kahler hotel and a church, which is very convenient. The hotel charges for parking, which may be a struggle for Mayo patients. However, on Saturdays and Sundays, parking on the street is free. All rooms have a full kitchen and a sofa bed. We would prefer a king size bed in the 1 bedroom suite as opposed to a queen size bed. Also, the breakfast was tolerable and the breakfast area could not seat more than 30 people, which is unacceptable for a hotel this size. The hotel does not have a pool, but Residence Inn guests have access to the swimming pool at the nearby Kahler hotel. This is a good hotel for families, Mayo patients, or anyone needing to spend the night in Rochester.

First the good. Location to Mayo was great! Parking not bad, breakfast was great. Person working in breakfast kitchen was amazing and always offering help. Great coffee and waffles. Lots of breakfast options and even had my favorite sugar free syrup. Front desk staff helpful. Mostly quiet while there. Now the bad. Room was not clean. First time I tried to use kitchen, I was disgusted and never did again. Bathroom was gross and appeared to use same rag in kitchen as bathroom...yuk. Yes I'm picky but no OCD. We were there a week and a half and the sheets were never changed. This was probably a good thing because I'm unsure what I would've got. The last 4-5 days there were difficult because our Nextdoor neighbors were cooking large meals that were extremely spicy. Everyone on our floor commented as well. We talked to front desk who couldn't do much. I bought air freshener and still woke up gagging. We were told the other party was leaving next day, but they did not. We were leaving in 36 hrs and decided not to move after I had already cleaned my own room. Hate giving negative review, but wanted to be honest.

This hotel hits all the high notes. There is indoor parking, with a gate. There is a good design on the roll in shower. There is adequate space for toiletries, and the sink is outside the bathroom area, so two people can prepare at the same time. All the amenities are included, from coffee pot to GLASS cups for drinking at the sink. Staff is incredibly friendly. There is a nightly snack, with free beer and wine. But, most of all, there is a really good breakfast! Even better than some I've had in restaurants. There was even a choice between sliced white cheese and Brie wedges for your toast! Hot, fresh scrambled eggs, and fresh croissants coming out of the kitchen in several flavors.

I was very happy with our stay at The Residence Inn at Mayo. It was clean and comfortable. I loved having a full kitchen. The choices of restaurants around Mayo are quite poor for people with health issues and being able to prepare our own food was wonderful. The only things I could recommend to the hotel to make it better would be for them to implement a better car service like Hilton has and it's time to replace the towels, they more closely resemble sandpaper than cloth. Our one bedroom suite looked exactly like their website photos,

This property is ideal for an extended stay, whether it be for business or medical related. The rooms are spacious consisting of a king or queen size bed, couch, dining space, work space and well a supplied kitchen. The location is ideal and is walking distance to the Mayo Clinic, St Mary campus, Methodist hospital and plenty of quaint pubs and restaurants. The only downside is that they do not have a shuttle service to or from MSP airport. You will need to hire a driver or use one of the airport shuttle services.

Have stayed here for many years while visiting Mayo Clinic. This time not impressed by the small dark and not terribly clean rooms. Housekeeping quite inconsistent sometimes okay other days they just change the towels.maybe it's time to look elsewhere.As a frequent flyer at other Residence Inns throughout North America, this one is not up to my expectations.

Very nice Marriott property adjacent to Mayo Clinic campus. Has underground subway tunnel that connects to Mayo Clinic's subway tunnel in case of bad weather. Rooms are always nice, but pricey. Have a nice cocktail hour that includes free snacks and also nice breakfast. Parking is underground and costs $20 p/day.

The Residence Inn/Marriott is the place to stay if you have to visit the Mayo Clinic. The rooms are well furnished and maintained, the staff is friendly and the complimentary breakfast is awesome. The 'subway' to the clinic is great and it also connects to CB3, (review coming!) a great restaurant that I visited many times on this trip. I stayed a week with family who were going to the clinic so having everything close was great. The front desk clerks were very accommodating and arranged for a nice cab (see my next review) to pick me up for the drive to the airport.

Fairly new and friendly staff. On the subway system and close to the Mayo complex. Rooms are quite small but adequate. We had a one bedroom suite with a complete Kitchen. Quiet and windows ventilate. You won't be disappointed. A nice Marriott property.

The hotel was very nice. The front desk employees were very polite. The room was clean the pillows were soft and the bedding was clean. The only issue we had was that the room was cold for a few hours before we got it to warm up.
