Pretty good for the price, friendly helpful staff and clean room, although they need to do a better job cleaning around the furniture and in the corners. There were two separate areas in the room with a queen bed in each one. The room also had a full sized refrigerator and a small stove and sink. The location is close... More

Easy to find and in a quiet enough location. Room was very spacious, had a small kitchenette and lots of storage for our family of 4. Our room was clean, comfortable and cool. Everything worked and we had no real problems during our stay. It worked for us as a good "home base" during our visit to San Antonio. Only... More

I got this hotel through Priceline's express hotel deal, and both priceline and this hotel messed it up big time. To begin with, Priceline advertised it as '2Q suite', and it was not actually suite. There are 2 room kind of spaces in the room, but they put each bed in those spaces and my family had to sleep separated... More

Price was fair for month long stay during San Antonio Rodeo. Close to ATT center for commute. Bathroom was HUGE. Good lighting, 2 tvs, comfortable beds, plenty of towels. Good value for price. We were comfortable being there for so long. Nice to have small kitchen to cook food. Carpet was dated and some stains but overall average. I booked... More

What I liked: 1) My room was very nice overall. It was big, and it appeared as though there had been recent remodeling done. 2) The staff was very friendly. What I didn't like: 1) Even though the room was nice, the rest of the hotel needs work. The carpet in the hallways really needs to be replaced. 2) My... More

Large room with separate living and bed area. Living room has couch, nice chairs, desk. Two queen beds in bedroom. I was in a suite with Jacuzzi. Everything is comfortable and roomy. Carpets in the stairways are stained badly. Biggest issue here is TV situation. Old-style flat screen TVs in living and bed area. Not HDMI TVs, so of course... More

This place is about 35 minutes from Six Flags Fiesta Texas, about 15 or 20 minutes from the Riverwalk, and about 10-15 minutes from the closest Walmart. Overall this is an okay hotel, just not worth the price (specially not the one shown on their website). Eventhough the room is spacious, once you sit on the bed, the whole magic... More

After reading the other reviews, I decided to try the hotel even thought it had only a 21/2 star rating. It was very disappointing. We went to our room and a maintenance man was in there trying to hang a big star on the bathroom wall. After an exhausting amount of time, he left without completing the task and took... More

We had not stayed at a Mainstays before and from checking in to leaving the next day, we wished we had made time to stay here longer. Rooms are so spacious and can watch tv in the sitting area if someone falls asleep in the bedrooms. So efficient, clean & will definitely stay there again & very moderately priced in... More

My family and I came to San Antonio and stayed at the MainStay Suites. We had never stayed at a Mainstay but I am glad we did. The front desk staff is super friendly and always eager to help.
