I can't say enough good things about my stay at Mainstay Suites. The hotel is very clean. The front desk staff (Candy, Shannon, and Lacey just to name a few) are extremely nice and helpful.

This is a wonderful place to stay especially if you are staying for a few days. The kitchen facilities are great, the staff is courteous, and the breakfasts were more than we expected. To top it all off the price was great.

We had a family get-together for the second time at this hotel and found most everything very accommodating.
