Decent place. I found the staff at the front desk (it really *is* a desk here) were friendly. The room : - was quite clean, -had a balcony with a fantastic view of the lake and mountains - had a comfortable bed What I found interesting was that it was fully stocked with cutlery, dishes, pots, stove, microwave, - even...

I booked this hotel via their 800 phone number at the last minute due to a transportation cancellation. I specifically asked for a property with interior hallways and a staffed front desk for security reasons. I also asked for a non-smoking room due to my sensitivity to odors. The Choice Hotels operator which handles MainStay Suites promised me all of...

We were pleasantly surprised by our efficiency room with a nice view of the lake (4th floor - all non-smoking floor). Very clean and the breakfast was most adequate. We had windows that open. The only complaint was with some other guests who were celebrating in the parking lot at 3 AM. The rooms were quite soundproof. Like mentioned by...

Family of 4 stayed at Mainstay Suites for 3 nights and were very pleased. Two teen boys slept on the fold-out bed and were comfortable. Our room wasn't as big as some other rooms we saw but it was plenty big enough. Huge bathroom with great shower. Small but OK kitchen area with fridge and microwave. Some other rooms had...

This was the first time we had ever stayed in a Main Stay Suites. It was very nice, with a large living room/kitchenette and bedroom. This particular location is new and very clean. The only issue I had was the checkin/checkout process as they do not have a staffed front desk. Their staff is at another hotel across the parking...

I stayed at the Mainstay Suites for just one night. The room was spotless, the bed was comfortable, the staff was helpful and I was lucky enough to have a room facing the lake with a soothing view. It was a large room with a full kitchen and separate bathroom. It had a desk you could comfortably work at along...

Stayed here for 4 nights. Had a room on the 4th (top) floor, lakeside with a balcony. The room was basically a small 1 bedroom apartment. There was a full kitchen, eating area, living area with couch and tv, and a bedroom with a door for privacy. The bathroom area was a little small, with the sink being outside the...

We stayed at Mainstay's Sept. 4th & 5th. The staff was friendly but I agree with another reviewer in that there was a strange smell in the elevator. Smelled like stale smoke to me. The room on average was clean enough but there was some mold in the bathtub. A little bleach would have taken care of that. Breakfast was...

The hotel is contained a group with a number of other hotels. The front desk staff was pleasant. The hotel property and rooms are not well-mantained. The hallway and elevator had a strange odor to them. The hallway to our room was littered with used cots and sheets when we arrived in late afternoon. The room was small for a...

I was at the MainStay for one night in early July (July 4 weekend, actually - booked three days ahead of time!) for $107 on an AAA rate. I had a two-room suite with a kitchen/living room, separate bedroom with the bathroom attached. There was a balcony off the living room portion, which was a nice touch. Front staff was...
