The location is great and the staff was friendly. The playpen we used on the other hand was foul. I know it was complimentary and it's weird to complain about free stuff but...yikes. I think it had some kind of cigarette burn holes in it or something. The room had a bit of a smell and the pool was dirty.... More

We stayed here as suggested by the visitors center. The hotel is just over the Arthur Ravenel bridge, just minutes from downtown Charleston. Room was clean, we ended up with a two bedroom suite with two bathrooms, which was great for the 5 of us. Breakfast was basic but good. Bagels, oatmeal, yogurt, OJ, coffee, etc. The 4th star is...

We chose this Hotel because it has "suites". The so called suite was half the size of a regular hotel room. The place was filthy. Carpeting was dirty, hair on the blankets, hair in the tub, stains on the pullout mattress, hallway carpeting dirty and elevator had garbage in it. When the sofa bed was pulled out it almost touched... More

Wow. Surprised is the best way to describe the stay- everything was clean and neat from the lobby all the way to the room. We stayed in the two bedroom two bath suite which was awesome , pool area was clean and maintained , breakfast was decent. LOCATION IS THE KEY!!! Only a 15 min ride to isle of Palm... More

When you stay at a hotel for weeks at a time, due to a family member having surgery at MUSC you really see what goes on at the hotel. So yes, MainStay is a "MustStay". The staff and management (a special thank you to Amy!!) are top notch, always willing to help any way they can. We made many trips... More

My family and I are military and stay here everytime we visit Charleston. We would give this hotel and its staff 6 stars if we could! The staff is extremely friendly and accommodates us with whatever we need. The location is the second best part! Within walking distance you'll find plenty to do at Patriots Point or Waterfront Park, especially... More

I've been a customer here for 15 years and have never had a problem. I've stayed various times throughout the years. It's always clean. The people are always courteous. Breakfast is awesome. I love the turtle pond. It's a convenient location. Great for kids.

We needed a room in a bad way. No reservations due to the sudden nature of our trip. They accommodated us & went above and beyond what we expected. It is not as nice as Residence Inn or Homewood, but it was clean and just what we needed. Only problem was with the AC. The sitting room was cool, but... More

Let me start by saying I previously stayed at this "hotel" about 7 years ago and expected wear and tear. I did not go with high expectations, just a clean room, fit enough for three. However this 5 minute stay will go down as my worst experience in travel EVER. Apart from an inviting lobby area this hotel is not... More
