Reviewed yesterday NEW

Loved the big kitchen/dining room area which we overflowed into. The beds were comfy, and the entire hotel was clean, though could use some painting/minor maintenance. The teen kids loved the swimming pool, foosball, and air hockey table. The breakfast was very good - lots of variety to choose from and the coffee was quite good. Can't beat it for...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 10 August 2016 via mobile

The hotel was clean comfortable and had a full size kitchen. There was not a lot of noise and the staff were friendly. The pool was great and the breakfast, while busy, was convenient. Definitely would stay here again, especially for the price.

We stayed in what must have been an updated suite. The suite had Tempur-pedic mattresses( but so-so pillows), newer appliances, and an updated bathroom. The suites are generously sized. Supposedly the hotel has a policy that suites receive only light housekeeping every third night- but we did not see this policy posted anywhere. You will get enough to eat at...

We stayed at MainStay Suites 4/12/17 thru 4/15/17 and had good and bad feelings about this hotel. I'll start with the Good: Large Rooms, two TVs, quiet nights, friendly employees, close to everything Williamsburg. Bad: Room was dirty looking, mold in bathroom, worn out paint/chipped, stains on couch and ottoman, bedspread was shabby and looked dirty, elevator disgustingly dirty and...

Check in was good. Male employee asked my wife and daughter to guess number of jelly beans in a jar for a promotion. Pleasant start. Lobby nicely updated as well as dining area. The hotel was a la Quinta before this and this is the first Mainstay I stayed in that wasn't purpose built, so the rooms aren't what I...

This place should be condemned...I honestly don't know how it passes inspection. In a word: disgusting. The room and hallways have a damp, mold smell. You feel like you need a shower after being here, except the bathrooms are just a disgusting as the rest of the property. Our room was not ready for check in until 5pm, two hours...

We got a great rate on Priceline for a last minute visit to Colonial Williamsburg. Had not stayed here since 2014. It is now a Mainstay (once LaQuinta and then Mayfair). They again have free breakfast, hot oatmeal, waffles, eggs and sausage both days we stayed (plus cereal, muffins, yogurt). Not as great, but a bonus. They are redoing the...

We took three of our preteen grandchildren to visit Yorktown and Jamestown and spent Thursday night here. We had a suite with two rooms with two double beds and a sofa bed. We had the pool to our selves in the afternoon and the next morning. They also liked the air hockey, foosball and pool table (the cue had been...
