This was a great location to visit Charleston. The hotels in Charleston, although in a perfect location, are out of our budget. This hotel was just over the bridge. We shared a room with another couple. We each had our own bathroom and separate bedroom. There was a small sitting room with small kitchen. The breakfast was good. The bathtub... More

We recently stayed in a two bedroom suite and were satisfied. The bedrooms are large, the kitchen area is ample and is equipped with pots/pans everything you need to cook with for extended stay. We had 3 flat screen televisions and two bathrooms. Every employee we came into contact with was professional, friendly and helpful. The hotel was older but... More

The best thing about this place is the location. It's easy to find, convenient to all of Mount Pleasant and to downtown Charleston.. In fact, its convenience is what elevates it to a shaky 2 stars. I think that's the best thing I can offer about it. Otherwise, it is pretty bad. Ok, it looks normal from the outside but... More

This property is geared for folks with longer term stays; however, it worked well for us for a one night stay. It is just across the bridge from downtown, historic Charleston - a $10 cab ride away. When leaving, don't turn right onto the main street if you want to head North vs. to downtown Charleston. The room was clean... More

I recently stayed at the hotel for 9 days and the overall experience was great. While you could smell a little stale smoke in the 3rd floor hallway from the days when smoking was allowed in the hotel my room was very clean and there was no residual odor there at all. Overall, it was very pleasant and much nicer... More

Dear JPC, Thank you for staying at Mainstay Suites, and for mentioning Amy at the front desk. The entire team is committed to guest service that "Wows," so it was particularly rewarding for a team member to be recognized. The hotel offers both smoking and non smoking rooms. The smoking rooms are located on a separate corridor from the non-smoking... More

Upon checking in I was pleasantly surprised by how nice the hotel was for the price. My mother and I decided on a last minute trip to Isle of Palms. The rooms were spacious and nice. Until I opened a kitchen cabinet and found what I thought was a roach. I dismissed it until when I got up during the... More

Picked this hotel because they had smoking rooms and a great deal for military. We had a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom suite. Housekeeping was okay for the general things but did not pay attention to the details. Maintenance issues were not addressed properly, but hotel in now aware of them. Rooms are a little dated, but overall was a great... More

Pros: Great Location- near stores, great guest services, easy drive to Isle of Palms beaches and Charleston Cons: the bathrooms were a little dirty and the AC is only in the living area of the suite. Bedrooms have fans. Not good in SC heat. Anyone sleeping on the sofa bed has to freeze for people in rooms to be comfortable.

We love Charleston and the surrounding areas of Mount Pleasant, Sullivan's Island and Isle of Palms. This hotel is located in a great spot close to everything. They provide an excellent complimentary breakfast and best of all, their rooms are immaculate. This is my first choice when it comes to staying at a hotel.

We checked into this room, and then checked right back out! My children started sneezing as soon as we walked in the room. The carpets looked filthy, and had not even been vacuumed in quite some time. The bathrooms were nasty! I would never let my children stay in a place so dirty! The lady at the front desk was... More
