The overall visit was amazing at this hotel. The staff were friendly and attentive to my requests. There was a friendly feel and even though I felt needy, they did not seem to mind at all. I loved having washers and dryers available to use. Along with a great breakfast that was easy for a busy person like myself. The...

I was a little leery booking this hotel for the day that Firefly festival revelers would be checking out, but the staff was on top of things. The rooms were clean and quiet, the lobby area is very welcoming and the morning breakfast had something for everyone! I will stay again at a Mainstay and recommend this to my friends

Booked this place for two nights, left after one. The room was filthy. It smelled like mold and someone else's contact lens was left in the sink. There was a carnival going on right next door and they put us in a room facing the carnival. I think there might only be one person working in the entire hotel at...

It doesn't seem to be installed correctly. Walking through the hallways you can smell cigarette smoke, although we couldn't smell it in our room. The breakfast...
