Had never stayed in a Mainstay Suites before. The living area was large as well as the bedroom. Bathroom was clean. Breakfast had the usual offerings but included eggs, sausage, & bacon. we were happy with everything and would stay here again.

This was truly a find for me! Not only because I have never stayed in a Mainstay Motel, but also because of its quality. PROS: Three rooms - kitchen/living (complete with pots/pans and even a dishwasher), separate bedroom and yet another, surprisingly large, bathroom! Everything was clean, staff was friendly/eager to please and needs were very comfortable. So nice to... More

The people working at this hotel were so friendly and accommodating! The staff at the front desk worked with us so that our group could have rooms close to each other on the same floor, and they were happy to do it! That plus the fact that the rooms were clean and comfortable made for a fabulous stay!

Stayed two nights recently and found the hotel to be fine, room was clean, quiet, bed was comfy. I would request that they have some thinner, fluffier pillows, not everyone likes fat hard pillows. I would stay here again!

This was our first time staying at a Mainstay Suite and it won't be our last - we will return. Our room was excellent and fully equipped - great, cooking facilities/fridge/micro etc spotlessly clean. The room itself was very quiet and breakfast was a relaxing experience. Excellent location with nicely maintained recently refurbished rooms and lovely grounds. There wasn't one... More

Very happy with experience.. Hotel is within walking distance of several stores, restaurants, and a nice Tap House. Staff were all friendly and competent. Rooms were nice, Kitchens were up to date (including an oven which is a step up from something like a Candlewood). Easy use A/C units with Constant fan easily available..

Good price. Full kitchenette. Quiet place. Very nice staff. It is right next to a building for "district correctional services", but it seems it just an admin building. We were very pleased we stayed here.

This motel has interior corridors which improve the security and keeps it warmer in the winter. The room was large and had a large refrigerator and dishes. A hot breakfast was provided. We were also given discount coupons to a restaurant. The front desk staff was friendly. There are some shopping centers and several restaurants nearby.
