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. The room was spacious and comfortable, we really liked that there were 2 TVs in the room. We enjoyed the free... More

We took a chance on this hotel because it was about $15 cheaper than the one we would normally have chosen. Bad mistake! It is very outdated, has an old smell, and is simply depressing. The front desk person was okay - no problems there. The breakfast was absolutely horrible. Orange juice was spoiled, coffee was out, no attendant on... More

Our fist time to stay at this hotel. The front desk was very nice and speedy. But the smell in the hotel was awful. Getting off the elevator on our floor was almost nauseating, and EVERY time we walked into our room we had to spray Febreeze. It smelled like someone had cooked on the stove and melted something and... More

I found the reviews on certain US Mainstay Suites Hotels intriguing and surprising . I travel a great deal. I had never stayed with this chain. I discovered them on line. It was the lowest price, very near the Winnipeg Richardson's Airport. The price was lower than two very questionable airport hotels. With trepidation I booked. What a revelation. The... More

I booked a last minute trip to San Antonio with my boyfriend. I usually stay in well know hotels ... Hilton,Embassy,etc. but since it was spring break and last minute all hotels pricing was doubled. I used my bank rewards program and tried out Mainstay after review the guest room. I was thinking lesser quality for a good price of... More

Just checked out today after a 3 day stay. It was spring break so hotel was full and a few noisy neighbors. Was close to downtown and Fort Sam Houston. My husband works for the State of Texas so we got a great rate (79.00 a nite). Was nice having a living room and kichen area. We made our own... More

We stayed five nights here and I didn't get one night of good sleep. The beds were hard and unstable. The road and train noise was unbearable at night and doors slamming all hours of the night. Asked to be moved but was told I had to check back later, when I did I was told I was too late... More

I do not understand some of the poor reviews. The staff was excellent. I arrived early and there were no room available and the front desk people kept offering me things and a place to wait. The maid forgot to leave hand soap but came immediately when I requested it. She then asked about four separate time if there was... More
