Let's see... 3 days before, spent over $325/nite in the Boston MA area for a hotel that should have been outstanding. Brought to Rochester this week for a surgical procedure for my husband, we couldn't believe the difference in this modest, family operated place catering to Mayo patients and their families. Let's see the differences for over $250/nite less: free...

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you so much for your glowing review about our hotel. It's such a compliment to hear that We were able to provide you with so many more amenities than a $325/night hotel.

We (my husband and I) were suppose to check out on Weds but due to additional testing that led to a procedure being done on him, we had to stay until Sat. Employees went out of their way to accommodate us. They were very compassionate and so nice about our situation, I'm glad we stayed there.

We had traveled over 9 hrs in the middle of the night to get to Rochester to see our young loved one before she passed.

The beds are comfy and the bathroom is clean. It's also in a very convenient location near the mayo system and civic center and other cool places. Breakfast is provided as well, which is a plus!!! There's only 2 floors and an elevator is provided as well as a "fit center" vending machine and ice and washer/dryer.

We had an emergency visit to Mayo Clinic in Rochester and I needed a hotel that was reasonable. I had stayed at another Econo Lodge at a different time so thought I would give this one a try. The front desk person was really nice. I can't remember his name-maybe Mike? A younger guy with great customer service skills. The...

I wouldn't usually stay in an Econo Lodge, but after reading the rave reviews on this site, I figured I'd stay here on my way out west for a night.
