We came to Charleston for dance nationals and needed a place to fit two girls ages 17 and 14, one 7 year old boy and parents. This place fit the bill. We had a kitchen with full size refrigerator, and dish washer. All the plates, silverware, and glasses were provided. Our suite had two baths, two bedrooms, and a pullout... More

This was our 1st time to stay at a MainStay Suites, but it won't be our last! The grounds and building are attractive and well kept. The best part of this hotel is the very friendly and helpful staff - the housekeepers, maintenance workers, and front desk staff are pleasant and there to help. Each suite has 2 bedrooms, 2... More

I traveled with my dad and brother. All being over age 23 it was super nice to have the separate bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Perfect for any family. The room was clean and I am kinda particular about that and it was real good. For the price and the central location to the beach and to downtown Charleston, and the... More

On behalf of the Mainstay Suites family, thanks for staying with us! We loved providing accommodations for your family, and appreciated you mentioning that our location is ideal if you are cruising out of the Charleston Harbor. Our franchisor requires us to offer specific television programming, and we're sorry that the children's options were limited. We hope that your travels... More

This is a "no-frills" hotel. It feels like a bunker on the inside, but the rooms were clean (if slightly worn). The staff is very friendly. The breakfast isn't anything special, but edible. The AC worked well (important in the Charleston area). It was extremely convenient to downtown Charleston at a fraction of the price. We did not spend much... More

To be fair, I selected this hotel on location and price. Both were fantastic! However, I was disappointed in the room and services in comparison to other chain hotels I have stayed at. Location - very nice affluent neighborhood, quality grocery stores nearby. Historic Charleston was a short drive away. Nearby Shem Creek has fun restaurants with great views. Grounds... More
