“Water, Water Everywhere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

While away on a short trip, my wife and I returned to a home flooded by an unfortunate water break on the second level of our home, which destroyed the entire lower level and some areas on the main and second floors. That being said, we now had to find other accommodations and after looking at many other hotels, we finally ended our search here. Knowing that we were going to be out of the house for an extended period of time, we needed a full kitchen for long term possibilities. This we got and more! The rooms are very nicely maintained and the entire staff was pleasant and forthcomming. The hotel offers a nice breakfast on a daily basis, sauna, hot tub and fitness room for those who may be inclined. With our lengthy stay of over five months, we grew to look on many of the staff as more of an extended family. We have the greatest regards for the management and staff and for all they did. I would have no question in recommending this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Rooms on the west side are less susceptible to traffic noise as route 90 (King Edward) traffic can w...

It was a wonderful hotel to stay at. We have stayed in many hotels in Winnipeg and other places. For Winnipeg, having a family of four and a daughter visiting us who goes to University this was wonderful. She could visit us, lots of room, We even took her puppy with us to visit her. No pool, but my boys are 17 and daughter 18 who came to visit, they all used the hot tub and enjoyed it very much. Good Internet Access. Full kitchen, which we didn't use, however full sized fridge and top freezer that we did use. Shopped at Costco, bought our meat for the trip home and froze it the night before. Good for the 8 hour drive home. Great breakfast in the morning, which included the usual continental PLUS. First day was eggs plus, second day was all the makings for Egg, bacon muffins which everyone enjoyed. Location not excellent for us as University is in St. Vital Area, but staying here because it is worth the 15 minute drive. For people wanting to shop at Polo Park, it is so close. Have to go to Winnipeg again in March, just booked. Even though everything we have to do is in St. Vital area. Love booking with Jauna, she is so great to talk to on the phone. This is my hotel of choice from now on in Winnipeg. Breakfast room staff very nice as well. A beautiful good morning each day. Thank you Main Stay!

The best part of the motel is its spacious rooms, comfy beds and a nice style of furniture. Furthermore good supply of hot water and a nice shower head. Anyone that would be spending days here would appreciate the kitchen amenities. The natives that use hotels for housing frequent this place, so it is perfect for that. The hot tub and sauna was out of order, which was a disappointment. Since it is not super cheap I asked front desk if she had figured that in the rate...no she hadn't - so discounted the room $12.00 for that. If your plane leaves earlier than 7:30 than front desk calls the taxi for airport shuttle service, which can leave you with a stuck driver or no company policy to give you confidence. The breakfast had good variety with some hot items. If you come in the East entrance you will be met with a not so pleasant a smell - couldn't put my finger on it. Our chairs in the room had stains on them. Overall? I would say it was ok. What seems to be lacking is attentive management. Reception checked us in and all but they both were glued to there electronic devices and so to say that we were met with a feel good and glad your here feeling - that not. Would I stay again? - I am undecided. It would get full rating for a budget priced motel. It would remind me of a motel that started out great and is slipping gradually. We are fussy travellers...some people wouldn't notice anything here so don't let me scare anyone off.

Room Tip: No Airport Hotels will have much for scenery in Winnipeg so for that there is likely not much prefer...

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your comments regarding our clean, spacious rooms, comfortable pillow top mattress beds and contemporary styled furniture. In addition to this each guestroom is equipped with a pullout sofa, 37" flat screened TV, and wireless/hardwired high speed internet service.
Further the full kitchenettes each guestroom are equipped with all the kitchen wares you need to prepare your own meals and are perfect for a guest requiring an extended stay accommodations, like as you mentioned the six aboriginal elders whom have been displaced from their homes due the Manitoba floods or the number of other guests whom have been displaced from their homes due household tradgies like fires etc., or guests relocating to Winnipeg whom need temporary accommodations while waiting to move into their new homes. But what you could not know, as I can see from our records this is your first visit to MainStay Suites Winnipeg, is that our primary clients, the business and corporate traveller, love the kitchenettes (not found in competing hotels) to prepare their own meals as it saves them time and the expense that eating meals in restaurant requires. This is the same reason sport teams love them too.
From the complimentary Hot Breakfast featuring Eggs, Hash Browns, and Sausage or Ham, and fresh in-house baked Danishes, Muffins and Pastries, to our complimentary airport shuttle as with many airport properties, is supplied by Hotel Shuttle and/or contracted Taxi service and being 3 to 4 minutes from the airport has always provide timely service whether using the complimentary hotel shuttle or taxi service. As well you can imagine from time to time beyond the control of the hotel repairs are require for the safe operation of equipment for hotel guests, much like the hot tub being under repair this weekend (hot tub should be in operation before the end of this week). I do apologize for any inconveniences this may have caused and like the above complimentary items mentioned these are valued added services that are offered but not priced into our room rates.
Due to your comments I have investigated what you experienced from the weekend staff and have taken appropriate corrective action to remedy the situation. I can assure this was an anomaly as you can see from previous reviews we take professional, courteous and friendly service from all employees of the hotel very seriously.

After browsing online for a place to stay before an early morning flight, we took a chance on this hotel. We were immediately greeted by friendly staff at the counter. We didn't have a chance to book a reservation but they were able to accommodate our stay without question.

The room we received was a single queen tucked away from any foot traffic which provided a quiet stay. We were blown away walking into a small kitchenette which was not expected fully equipped with everything we could have needed. Small kettle and coffee maker for breakfast, refrigerator for left overs, and all the dishes and kitchen wares we could have needed. I wished we were staying longer so we would have had a chance to use it all!

Check in and check out was seamless and the room was immaculate. Would most definitely stay here again if ever back in the area.

We stayed at this hotel a little over a year ago and, because we had to catch an early flight out of Winnipeg, opted for this hotel again. We had initially booked a normal room but we had our daughter and our little grandson with us and decided to move up to a suite with a separate living area. The room was impeccable, the bed comfortable and we were given a crib when we asked for one. Breakfast had been a good continental one but has since been upgraded to include a few hot dished. What set the hotel further apart from many is the friendly staff. How often do you get a "good morning" from the guy who mops the floors in the lobby? The price was a bit on the high side but not out of line for a good hotel close to the airport.

We have stayed at several different hotels in Winnipeg and this is the best one by far. We stayed in rm 306 (a corner King suite) and it was quiet and roomy, perfect for us and our baby. The kitchenette had everything we needed and then some (even oven mitts but no oven! Haha!), and the daily maid service was exceptional. The free breakfast was great, with a variety of hot and cold items. The front desk staff were helpful and courteous, and the coin laundry on site came in handy. The location was convenient- just a couple minute drive to Polo Park and an easy drive to downtown, yet safe and quiet. We look forward to staying here in the future.

Room Tip: ask for a corner suite- quiet and roomy.

This is a great hotel. It is near the airport and malls. However it is a really quiet place. The room are fantastic and anyone that is traveling with a team should consider this place. All rooms have full size fridges and stoves. Rooms are huge. The breakfast we had on the Saturday is not what I normally have at a hotel. They had eggs, ham, potatoes and french toast. The room rates are alot cheaper than other hotels but dont let that scare you. This is a place that you want to stay at. It will be my first choice when staying in Winnipeg.
