Spent 2 nights at Mainstay Suites and it provided good accomodations. As noted in other reviews it is set up for longer stays with housekeeping provided on the 3rd day of occupancy, with more frequent attention at an additional cost. The are laundry facililties on site, which can be a great advantage. The rooms were clean and well taken care... More

This is an older suite hotel. The place is nice in that it does have a couch (hide-a-bed) and ottoman to rest at. We did not use the kitchen but you could save money any make meals instead of going out every night. We were there five days. Within an hour after we moved in I notified the front desk... More

First understand that this property is designed for a multi night stay. With that being said, I thought the stay was very nice! The girl at the front desk was great and offered little tidbits about the area that was very helpful. Since these rooms are designed for longer term stay, they are larger with has a nice feel about... More

We visited this location for a one night stay recently. Upon arrival, we found a clean well-maintained location with a cordial front-desk associate who checked us in promptly. He courteously provided us with a card that entitled the holder and one of his or her guests to a free beverage from the lobby beverage container. We reached our room within... More

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
