      At $158 a night it wasn't close to worth it. $143 for room, parking and taxes plus no continental breakfast. Getting charged $12 for parking because reservations weren't made through Kahler (done thru www.booking .com) isn't right. Will not stay here again. One can stay at a major hotel chain for 1/2 that amount and get an all day parking pass for $5.

    • Group of friends
      6.6

      Good staff comfortable beds; Good swimming pool well maintained

      given a very small room, cramped when other larger rooms were available, maybe because it was booked thru Booked.net; probably wouldn't stay there again because of this

      The location of the hotel, across the street from the Mayo Clinic can't be beat! The staff is unfailingly attuned to service!

      The location was great, we were just having a get away and it was a perfect place to just walk around and do allot of window shopping and enjoying Sat evening.....

      We had a room with a queen bed which was comfortable, but there was to much furniture in the room, the desk could have gone away & another comfortable chair would have been appreciated. Also something else in the bathroom to put your bath things on. The water in our bath was luke warm!!! both pm & am.....

      Great location. The staff was very kind and helpful.

      Elevators are a little small when using a wheelchair

      It's location to the Mayo Clinic was what brought us there.

      Difficult to see that we were there and difficult to find the hotel parking.

      We were in Rochester, mn in order to see doctors at the Mayo Clinic and the Kahler Grand Hotel is across the street. Location. The attached parking lot is very convenient (to say the least). My husband and I stayed in a lovely room with a Queen-sized bed for $99 a night;a very affordable price for all that was included. Having a mini refrigerator, and a microwave in the room was incredibly helpful. Convenience. In addition, I was able to use the exercise room and enjoyed swimming in the pool. Thanks to the staff working at the desk and the employees in housekeeping. Everyone made our stay a very pleasurable one.

    • Family with children

      It is near Mayo clinic.

      I didn't like the kahler grand hotel and I won't choose it in the future. The entire hotel including the pool looks old and unclean. It made me very uncomfortable. The carpet in my room was wet and damp. I felt really gross about it. How could they let customers stay the room with the wet carpet? I booked a two-bed room, but it became a single bed only. I talked to the hotel. The staff said they can upgrade it, but I have to pay extra mony for it. It ended up I have to share a bed with my 10-year-old son. This was an unpleasant experience to me.

    • Family with children

      We were going through Mayo Clinic and selected the Kahler because it is right in the front door of the clinic.

      The bathrooms are outdated. My son said the water goes from hot to cold and back when showering.

      I had problems breathing - probable allergy issues.

    • Older travelers

      The Kahler Grand provides accomodation for the Mayo Clinic patients and families. It's location is excellent and the hotel has always provided lots of help to people who need it - we have been guests many times and have not been disappointed.

    • Single

      Starbucks in lobby area.

      In my booking at requested a remodeled room. The hotel refused to give me remodeled room at that rate. After looking at the 'non-remodeled room' I took the remodeled room at a higher rate. The regular room was AWFUL--old, dirty, depressing. The remodel room was 'acceptable'. It's still closer to Motel 6 than the Marriott, but one can't beat the location across the street from the Mayo Clinic. The place is understaffed- not enough bellmen or front desk staff. In addition, the whole place is just plain old--the halls are narrow and dingy, the lobby, the dining room. It needs a major revamp.

    • Family with children

      Rooms need renovated. Stayed on the 9th floor and it was very dated for the money we payed
