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. The land around Viola Suites is beautiful, with a fire pit, outdoor grills, and plenty of trees. Perfect short distance from town, seriously a 5 minute drive at...

We spent most of the month of May at Viola Suites for a major surgery and initial recovery. The Elizabeth accommodated all three of us (adults) with a full kitchen and most amenities we could want. We started most mornings sitting quietly drinking our coffee and bird watching in the sitting room. The back yard is a large wooded lot...

We spent 5 weeks at Viola Suites with our three girls during a stem cell transplant and radiation appointments. The beautiful property conveniently located just outside of downtown was a nice get away from the daily appointments at Mayo. Everything about our stay was above and beyond our expectations. Judy, the property manager, was so sweet to our girls and...

My husband and I stayed at An Abby at Viola Suites for 7 weeks while attending treatment at Mayo Clinic. Judy, the property manager, excels at her job. Not only does she see that your living needs are met, she is a loving, caring, understanding woman. The suites are furnished. Not only furniture and kitchen utensils, but spices, bathroom necessities,...

I was fortunate enough to book a stay at Viola Suites during my last visit to the Mayo. What a pleasure to be out of the hustle and bustle of the clinic and downtown hotels. I was actually able to relax after I got "home" from one of my appointments. Judy, the general manager, deserves a lot of credit for...

What made our stay at Viola Suites so sweet besides the gas fire place and the beautiful bay window view of the back yard woods from our little living room is the attentiveness and care beyond perfection by An Abbey at Viola Suites manager "Judy". Its cold in Rochester Minnesota, and especially tough during recovery from open heart surgery and...

While my husband underwent radiation therapy at the Mayo Clinic for 6 weeks we were lucky enough to locate the Viola Suites. My husband is very attached to our new puppy and it was a relief to know that we could bring Madison with us. Judy, the manager, went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable and...

This trip to Mayos has many unknowns for my adult son and myself including staying at Viola Suites. But that all changed when we pulled in the driveway. We were greeted by Judy the property manager which came in special on a Sunday to make sure everything was set up for our needs and any questions answered. Immediately she came...

We stayed at Viola Suites (in the Melinda Suite) after my husband got a transplant. My initial contact with Dennis was challenging, but all of my contacts with Judy (the manager) were great. Viola Suites provided everything we needed, and overall, was a good experience. Our only challenge was our neighbors above us were a bit noisy. However, we mentioned...

I am writing this review because of the wonderful stay I had with my wife at Viola Suites, she was having open heart surgery. The suite had everything, cable, private phone number, internet, free usage of a DVD feature film library, everything. Since we stayed one month the extra's that were provided made this property a value. The kitchen was...
