I stayed in this hotel for a long weekend with my 12 year old son and his friend. I felt the value of the room was fantastic considering we had 2 bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, and a common area with a kitchenette. Not having to buy lunch for 3 each day (by making sandwiches and using the fridge)... More

Rented two suites and were moving from Florida to South Carolina. Nice rooms with a small kitchen, very good staff, clean rooms and a fun area for breakfast and cocktails. Conveniently located to shopping and restaurants in Mt. Pleasant or Charleston.

MainStay Suites is such a hidden gem that a routine Google search of Suites in the Patriots Point area of Mt. Pleasant did not turn up MainStay. I'd stayed here maybe 5 or 6 years ago and forgotten the name. I remembered the spacious rooms, the kitchenettes, the proximity to good grocery stores and the convenience of being just a... More

Had a great time staying here. Very close to everything in Charleston and right off of the bridge. Front Desk staff was nice and they had cookies available up front. Breakfast was ok but nothing special. I would stay here again as rooms were big, had full kitchens, and a nice table also. Was great for our little boy because... More

A bit neglected. Things need repair. Tub dripped No working fan in bathroom Cigarette smell in lots of rooms. Over powering air freshener in hallway/foyer. My feet were dirty from walking around the room barefoot. On the plus side... Staff were friendly. Bagels, cereal and oatmeal and more for breakfast. The bed was comfy. Location was good. I'd try someplace... More

This Mainstay Suites is ideally located to see Charleston's wonderful sights or work with the medical wizards at MUSC. We have stayed for 3 months to get a liver transplant for my husband. While we waited, we enjoyed great food. Saw almost all that the city has to offer, had the privilege of our nearness to the Memorial Park and... More

We stayed her for a couple of nights with our son. It was ok. The room was generally clean however, the carpets, pull out sofa, and tubs need to be cleaned thoroughly. The sinks drain didn't work unless you pulled out the stopper. The staff was really nice and helpful. Their breakfast was pretty minimal. Great location. Just across the... More

The room was generally clean and the staff was most delightful. The continental breakfast was good. On the areas where improvements are needed and the foldout had stains, the ironing board was broken but the staff replaced the board.

I have stayed at all of the Choice hotels in the Charleston area, including North Charleston, Summerville and West Ashley. This facility is the best value of all I have stayed at. The Comfort Suites have nicer, more modern rooms, but in my opinion are not worth the extra cost. In fact, for an area with so many motels, I... More
