This place is a total and complete dump!!!! My room was infested with black mold which they attempted to cover up with canned spray paint!!!! The floors were filthy!!! The phone didn't even work the screens were ripped out of the windows. I had mold inside the fridge and it was absolutely nasty!!! If you value your health and the... More

This is a good extended stay type hotel. I was using it every weekend to go skiing with no regrets. The hotel has now dropped the Main Stay Suites franchise and is now under Smart Suites private label with no Choice Rewards. Sad to say, but I'll stay somewhere else with benefits.

If you like cleanliness, as I do, forget this place. The carpets and floors in the lobby are always dirty. Our room carpeting had burns and stains in it--not terribly appealing. The upholstered chair was pulling apart. And as for the bedmaking---you could almost picture housekeeping just pulling up the cover, since the top sheet was all wrinkled, which you... More

The hotel is conveniently located near to Burlington for visiting colleges, and the staff was genuinely pleasant. The breakfast was very low budget, packaged pop-tarts and cereals were options. Also, there were bagels and engish muffins w/ a toaster, along with toaster style french toast and waffles... most of the breakfast was processed food. Some fruits, coffee, tea, and hot... More

This is a decent Extended Stay Hotel in South Burlington, VT. It is sited up a hill from the main drive and some rooms have views out towards the Lake. It shares it's location with a couple of other hotels that are operated by the same owners. The rooms are all suites with kitchens. This hotel is similar in concept... More

I just got back from 2 nights at the Mainstay property. I found it to be spacious - large bedroom with king bed (extra pillows and blanket in closet), large living area and kitchen area, balcony with great views of the Lake (4th floor). Breakfast was included and offered french toast, waffles, juice, muffins, cereal, yogurt, fruit and pop tarts.... More

The Mainstay is with others owned by the same people so you can use the pool/whirlpool at the H-I Express as well. Breakfast was typical but very nice. Rooms large and clean and modern. I found no problems staying here. Unless there are few people, the larger parking lots that are shared are where you will park (not right in... More

I booked my stay at this hotel based on the reviews I read here. I was in town for a rugby tournament and needed a place to crash for one night. My overall feeling was the hotel was just ok. It is a chain hotel. I did not expect it to be anything fantastic, however, I did expect it to... More

We stayed at this property for one night on our way to Boston. The hotel is part of a collection of 4 hotels and a restaurant off the main road (Hwy 7) in South Burlington. This makes for quite a quiet location, and being up the hill gives the upper floor rooms a lovely view of Lake Champlain. The lobby... More
