I was able to reserve a large studio with it's own kitchen and living space. I was pleasantly surprised with the room because of the size and cleanliness. It always had a very nice sized bathroom. There is a "workout area" but it smells. I think because it is in such a small space with minimal ventilation. I wanted to...

Due to a medical issue, I've required lodging for several consecutive nights. So, this is not my first stay here. It is not the Four Seasons, but it's not a flea bag either. Due to circumstances, I needed 2 bedrooms, clean, quiet, and easily accessible. This place met those needs for not a lot of cash--important when deals by with...

I travel to Mt Pleasant several times a year for work and stayed at MainStay for the first time because I booked late and my usual places were booked up. It's a budget hotel (I booked below $100) and everything is a little worn and not updated. Having said that, my room was clean, the AC was stunningly cold and...

You get what you pay for. This place is just your average budget stay. The desk folks are really nice and the rooms are okay. Our suite was acceptably furnished and clean. As it turned out we didn't really use the kitchenette but it was nice to have the extra space. Location is easy and quiet. Breakfast is very basic....

The staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean and full of any accommodation you can think of. I couldn't ask for a better room to stay in every time I visit Charleston for work. The courtyard in the back is beautiful. Check it out

We stayed here a few months ago for the weekend and enjoyed our stay we came back for our anniversary week! Katherine at the front desk is always so amazing as is the rest of the front desk staff! In reality they are probably the reason we enjoyed our stay so much! The rooms are still being renovated. That being...

I chose this hotel because of it's proximity to the Arthur Ravenel Bridge because my husband had an event near there and it was the most economical. The staff was very friendly and informative. The room was pretty good. It had two bedrooms and two bathrooms and was clean enough. There was a two burner stove and full size refrigerator...

Dear JGK930, Thank you for being a guest of Mainstay Suites. You are correct that Mainstay Suites does not offer daily housekeeping services. However lite touch housekeeping services are provided daily. Mainstay Suites is an extended stay brand by Choice Hotels, and we are respectful that the extended stay model is not the ideal fit for every guests.

This hotel definitely has its ups and downs. It was the cheapest place we could find in the area and it was pretty close to downtown (right over the bridge). For a pretty decent price we got a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom suite with a nice kitchen and living room which had plenty of room for us and made for a...
