    I was wondering where any of you might have stayed while in Rochester. I was considering Kahler's since it is so close and has the subway to the clinic, mall, theater, etc., but have heard it is run down now......Just wondering.....wanted to double check it before spending too much on a room there.......

    I have been to Mayo Clinic. You have to be careful if you

    stay at the Kahler whether you get a room at the regular

    hotel or the motor inn. They don't tell you at the time you

    are making your reservation. The motor inn is not connected

    to the hospital and it is quit a ways to go. You can ask for

    an escort that will come and get you in a wheelchair. The

    escort service at the Mayo Clinic is remarkable. It makes

    your stay there so much more enjoyable. (And they have

    so many interesting stories to tell you.)

    There is also a skyway system along with the subways that connect most of the downtown & several hotels to the clinic. The following link might help. http://www.rochesterlodging.com/locmap.htm

    Hi Heather,

    For clinic visits we stayed at several different motels. Some were a ways away and we rode shuttles to the clinic. Almost all motels have shuttle services to and from the clinic for their guests. The last few times we stayed at the Clinic View Inn. It is connceted to the clinic complex by subway and is a very nice motel. It has a pool, resurant and convience store.(Rooms were average price.) We found it was the most convient because we could walk back to our room in between appoinments when we had an hour or so to wait and could grab a soda and snack in the store.

    During Andrew's myectomy surgery at St. Mary's we had a room at Fiksdal Motel directly across the street from the hospital.(my husband and I would take turns staying with Andrew and the other would go sleep at the motel) It was VERY reasonably priced ($55 per night) and was nice and clean.

    We had a reservation at the Kahler for our first trip to Rochester. THe lobby is very nice and well decorated. The rooms were not worth the money. They were very small and had outdated furnishings. We left the Kahler after staying for two nights. We then stayed at the Executive Suites by Kahler, which was better. It is connected by the subway and has free continental breakfast. The place we now stay every trip is the Best Western , Soldiers Field. It is a few blocks from the Clinic but has a shuttle which will take you anywhere from 5 am until 10 pm...even to the shopping malls or to pick up a pizza at 9 at night. You never have to wait long for them to pick you up. The rooms are clean, have fridge, microwave and TV. THere is a continental b-fast. About 70.00 per night.
