Room very tiny and outdated. Looked like a 70s throwback. The furniture was dinged up, carpet stained, mattress thin. We unfortunately ended up in a smoking room (hotel booked full so we were told), so we also had to deal with stale smoke. The front desk offered to spray room freshener for us. Not a pleasant stay 😕

As far as sleep quality, take some ear plugs. Climate control a/c is very noisy. Everytime it cycled, it was preceeded by a loud thud. Then I was awoken twice by the couple in the... More

The place was clean...from the parking lot our room. Breakfast was better than most places of this price. Had to go to the front desk for a roll of toilet paper. The roll in the crapper was almost empty. Looked in every drawer in the place and found none. The facility is within walking distance of several chain restaurants, and... More

Spent a night here midweek. I had reserved a non-smoking queen suite, but was sent to a smoking room where the keys did not work. They moved me to a correct room. Very good room, separate bedroom from bath and living area. No list of TV channels, so I had desk send me one, a very confusing version. I like... More

I had never stayed in a Mainstay before. The suite consists of an efficiency kitchen, a small living area, a bathroom, and a semi private bedroom area. The kitchen area was smaller than most other suites (I.e. Residence Inns). Other than that the room was quite comfortable. The front desk team were very welcoming and were quite helpful answering questions... More

Very nice place to stay. One thing the lady who handle the food did something nasty. She was preparing food with gloves on and then started messing with the garbage can with the same gloves on. Oh did I mention she started touching other food with the same gloves. She DIDNT CHANGE THE GLOVES. Infectious control at its all time... More

My wife and I stayed her on a Saturday night. The staff was GREAT! They called the Casino for us and had their bus pick us up and brought us back to the hotel later. That was a great service so we could drink and have a great time. The rooms were a little dated but for the price they... More
