If you will be needing Mayo Clinic downtown there is a free shuttle. If you will be staying for St. Marys Hospital there is also a free shuttle(ONLY M-F) but there are may hotels within walking distance.
There was an event that caused the place to be inundated with children who ran around the lobby and breakfast room with wet bathing suits(quite dangerous).
We found it just too far even with the shuttle. Even more important there is NOT a shuttle to and from the airport on weekends.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. I'm glad you enjoyed our convenience near Target and area restaurants, as well as our Mayo shuttle. However, I apologize that your overall experience wasn't what you had hoped for. Your comments will be shared with my staff to ensure any deficiencies are corrected for the future. I hope you will reconsider and allow the Country Inn & Suites Rochester another chance to host you.
