Excellent experience. Friendly staff. Clean and comfortable. They have Mayo rates and a complimentary shuttle. Most of the customers appear to be seniors visiting mayo clinic. But I fit that demo too. And this place really fit my needs. I know I need to go back for more visits. Econolodge will be my first choice.

Stayed 2 nites during our Mayo checkups. Convenient hourly courtesy vans to/from Mayo/Gondo & St Mary's buildings. Great full breakfast (since fasting, kept breakfast in Micro 'til after procedure). Many were On van to Mayo and had returned to Econo Lodge year after year and noticed many improvements. Staff was exceedingly friendly & helpful.

I recently stayed at the Econo Lodge on South Broadway in Rochester, MN for about six weeks while receiving treatment at the Mayo Clinic. This was the best value in a hotel that i have encountered in 70+ years. The facility is extremely clean and quiet. The staff will do anything to make your stay comfortable and pleasant.

Have spent much time in Rochester during the past year at mayo clinic and have used many hotels trying to find one hat was better than the others.

Dear Rodney, So sorry to hear about your negative experience, we do pride ourselves on providing nothing less than both great service and comfortable stays.

Everything about this place was awesome from the clean rooms to the friendly staff couldn't ask for a more relaxing stay during a difficult time. The awards on the wall walking in say it all. Enjoyed the fitness room wasn't very much equipment but got the job done.

I love the great service provided by their housekeeping staff, very helpful and accommodating. I like how they put a bottle of water and granola bar in my room. Checkin was fast and efficient. Just wish they have more proteins for breakfast.

I typically don't review places, but this place was great, as Econo Lodges go. It could easily be on a 3 star level instead of a 2 star. Friendly staff, clean, updated rooms, and a great breakfast that was more than the typical Tang and stale donut. And for $49 plus tax through Priceline, it made it even that much... More
