My yearly trips to Rochester are made comfortable and safe due to my stays at the Country Inns and Suites. The desk workers are friendly and professional. The breakfast includes a variety of food and drinks.

In July/Aug 2016, there are renovations taking place that should put this hotel in the upper tier within the chain. Staff is very nice. Parking lot is big and well lit. Real silverware and dishes for breakfast were super! However, when entering the room, it smelled like a smoker just left it. Front desk commented that the hotel has been...

Stayed here late July 2016 for one night and had no problems. This was during a time the hotel was undergoing some renovations, yet the lobby and elevator area were still clean, a hard thing to accomplish if you have ever done any renovations at your home! The room was clean and the air conditioning was ice cold. There were...

We stayed here after spending the last two nights in cheaper hotels. This place was nice. The staff was friendly. The room was clean and they had nice bedding. The pool area was a nice and spacious indoor setting. The free breakfast was a full breakfast.

Lots of hotels in Rochester, but this one stood out for us as we travelled from Minneapolis to Iowa. Friendly staff, clean and comfortable room, and a great hot breakfast convinced us that this hotel deserves a return visit if and when we make it back to southern Minnesota.
