I’ll be coming from Oklahoma in April and need recommendations on places to stay. Thank you

Thank you for the helpful information, yes this is my 1st visit there.

I have appts in mid-March and we have reservations at Fairfield Inn. I keep looking at hotels which are closer, but this seems to have the best reviews and has a shuttle. Our biggest struggle is knowing how long we will be there. I have a lot of appts that first week, then nothing for almost a week. They are trying to adjust, but so far haven’t been able to get that last appt moved up. We are debating whether to stay over or make a second trip.

I have been going to Mayo Clinic in Rochester for the last five years. I stay at the Econolodge on Broadway next to Perkins. Reasonably priced, clean rooms, wonderful continental breakfast, exercise room, friendly staff and free shuttle. Side note: the staff knows me by name when I walk in the door. 🙂

@brendadunn1 Hi, just checking to see if you’ve found some worthwhile suggestions for lodging and shuttle services for your trip to Mayo Clinic. Which campus will you be visiting? Rochester, Phoenix or Jacksonville?
How long will you need lodging? Many of the hotels have full kitchens which can make longer term stays feel homey.

If you are having any difficulty finding a hotel or have special needs, all Mayo facilities have free concierge services which can help you find lodging mindful to your financial and medical situation.

Here are some useful links to Mayo~Rochester. If you need help for the other 2 campuses please don’t hesitate to check with Connect.

@heidi2020 Perhaps your friend can list her rental availability with the concierge services at Mayo Clinic Rochester. I am not sure if the service would allow it to be part of their list of accommodations, but it is always worth a try. Many times, easing stress by having a "homey" place to rest up, is a wonderful alternative.

I'll mention it to her. I know her houses are popular so she may be on it already. Thanks

I was there end of January and my daughter was with me as my caretaker, and I rented a little apartment through air B&B. It was in easy walking distance to the Mayo. It was super well run, and all the basic supplies came with the unit. I did air B&B last year, too. It is so much cheaper than any of the hotels, and has more conveniences, too.
