On route to Vancouver, we were visiting a friend in Rochester, and booked a room online at this hotel - thinking it was not the low quality it was. The beds were old, the rooms were super dated and i did not want to stay here. Gross The breakfast - was free - but I would have to be paid...

It is far worth the money to spend a few extra dollars to stay somewhere else. We should have known that you get what you pay for. The Clarion in our hometown is well cared for and modern feeling. This hotel is badly in need of TLC! The room was small, outdated, and unkempt. The hallways and grounds were downright...

We returned again for a 2 nights stay at the Clarion Inn in Rochester, MN. Their website is stating newly renovated rooms, however the room we had is exactly the same as it has been for the past several years. The room was clean but could use some renovation. It seems things have went down hill since we started staying...

We recently stayed at the Clarion in Rochester, MN for a hockey tournament. The entire staff could not have been more helpful - from the planning stages of our teams trip right through our entire stay. They helped create an affordable, healthy meal plan for our players. Not only was the food delicious, there was plenty of it to feed...

We had just gotten into town after driving 9 hrs and we were looking for a place to eat. This restaurant wasn't too far from our hotel so we decided to stop in. It turned out that they were having a karaoke contest that night and food was being served in the lounge, but not the restaurant. The hostess asked...

Although the room was spacious, the facilities at the Clarion Inn were seriously outdated. The bathroom needs some tender loving care. This hotel was clean enough, but could use more of a "deep clean."

Room was clean and quiet and had some upgrades such as granite counter top in bathroom, microwave and fridge in room. Carpet, bathroom tile, popcorn ceilings and noisy heater could use an upgrade. Arrived very late after driving several hours through blinding snow, so quite relieved to have a quiet place to rest. Staff very helpful in spite of our...

Room we were given was not cleaned. Light switch did not work. When we asked where to park, we were told as close to the front door as possible. Our room was an outside room on the other side of the hotel.I moved the car. Won't stay again.

If you are looking for a resort or an elegant hotel - go somewhere else. But if you are looking for a clean, comfortable and reasonably priced place to stay with very friendly and accomodating staff and amenities one usually doesn't find in this type of lodging - then the Clarion Inn Rochester is the place for you. If I/we...
