Reviewed December 30, 2011

We are a family of 3 teens and 2 adults, stayed in a 2 BR, 2bath suites. This hotel is definitely a budget hotel, but is MUCH than other hotels of this type. Located in a very nice area, convenient to Patriots Point and to the bridge to Charleston. The staff was knowledgable, nice, and helpful. Bedrooms just big enough to hold a queen bed, but bathrooms bigger than usually found in this type of hotel, and everything was clean and apparently recently renovated. Beds were very comfortable with pillow top mattresses. Heating system was quiet (often a problem in budget hotels). continental breakfast was limited, but adequate. Loved having 2 bathrooms. No problems at all with this hotel. I felt like we paid about 1/3rd of what we would have paid had we stayed in the city of Charleston. First day in the area, took the Fort Sumpter ferry from Patriots Point just a mile or two from this hotel. Later went over the bridge to Charleston. No problem with parking.
This is not the place to stay if you are looking for fancy decor and amenities, but this was a great place to stay for a budget minded, but pretty nice, hotel stay.

what a wonderful hotel! clean rooms, great rate, good breakfast. we went to tourist information in Charleston to book a tour & saw the need lodging sign. we told the attendant that we needed a suite outside the city. he called Mainstay & found a two bedroom suite. how shocked were we to open the door & find a clean spacious rooms with a sitting area & a kitchenette. I am planning on staying here again. all the desk clerk were very nice & had great attitudes!

Just finished what I believe to have been our sixth or seventh time staying at this facility. The reason for our repeat visits was the warm reception we received during our very first stay 2 1/2 years ago. Housekeeping has improved tremendously, and the rooms are kept in immaculate conditon. Always with plenty of towels, soap, shampoo etc. Studio suites are comfortable and povide a good selection of cableTV channels. Entire staff could not be friendlier, but special kudos to Amy and Elizabeth, the heart and soul of the operation. Only flaw would be that the continental breakfast could use a little tweaking and a little more variety. Would never think of visiting the Charleston area without a stay at our favorite place.

Stayed in this hotel for two nights during my recent visit to Charleston and Mount Pleasant area. The rooms were in immaculate condition and very spacious. I was not sure what to expect when I first arrived because the reviews were mixed, my opinion no complaints. The front desk staff were super nice and accommodating, the continental breakfast was well prepared and fresh, rooms clean and the free internet worked better than any other hotel computer I've used. Last remarks would be on the ideal location. The drive to downtown Charleston was about ten minutes, everywhere in Mount Pleasant was about five minutes and located right at the foot of the Cooper Bridge. We took a morning trip to the beach at Sullivan's Island and was only a ten minute drive. Highly recommend for travelers wanting space, nice room with a kitchen, and a great location!

Stayed 2 nights on 3rd floor. One bed studio suite with kitchen and pull out sofa. Lots of space. Free coffee 24hrs in lobby, free fast internet with printer in lobby. free wifi in room worked great. Everything was clean in room and lobby, halls and elevator. Bath needed update, but was clean! Staff was friendly, answered questions about area, directions. Quiet location. Basic breakfast with breads, cereals, jogurts. Located right near bridge to Downtown Charleston and easy to get to beaches. Stores and restaurants nearby within a minutes drive. Would stay again!
