Reviewed July 18, 2009

Just stayed at the Mainstay Suites Roanoke. Rooms are big, which was great, as we had three adults ane one young child. Place is clean and well maintained, but it is constructed very poorly. Our room was on the top -- fourth floor -- but you could hear conversations in the parking lot perfectly clearly, and the windows were shut. You can hear people in the hallways as well -- very clearly -- and you can even feel people run down the hall. We tried to use the wall HVAC unit to drown out the noise, which helped some. The HVAC, however, is right next to the sofabed, so my young nephew had to leave that bed b/c he was cold, and jump in with us.

The Mainstay Suites Airport in Roanoke is a clean, pleasant chain motel with a very nice, helpful staff. There are a lot of restaurants nearby. The room was fine.

A very beautiful hotel for a great price! Nice suite basically and L shape. When you walk in the living room is in front and the kitchen is to the left. When you walk through the living room (with a sofa, recliner and flat screen tv) the beds are to the left. Not two separate rooms but spacious. The bathroom was nice and clean. Very clean hotel and friendly staff. We were even allowed a later checkout to accommodate oversleeping! When you are in Roanoke - check out the Mill Mountain Star Overlook at night - breathtaking!

My girlfriend and I stayed in MainStay on a girl's shopping getaway. Our check in was a breeze and the room was awesome, we had 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen and living room. 2 TV's. The room was just perfect. Clean and roomy. Bathrooms were big and very clean.
Location was perfect, near several nice restaurants and the mall. Easy on off from the highway. Very enjoyable stay.

This was our first stay at an Amerisuites Hotel. My husband had a two day business meeting and we wanted a place close to shopping areas. This hotel was reasonable walking distance to shopping and eating areas. The hotel staff were super friendly and helpful. The lobby area and our room were very clean. I think the only thing I can say negatively about this hotel was the heating system was noisy and inadaquate when using both rooms.

I stayed at the MainStay Suites while on business in the Roanoke area. While the hotel is in the flight line for the airport, it didn't keep me up at night. The rooms are well insulated and quiet. The kitchen is well appointed, with a full fridge, microwave, and sink. These suites aren't very family friendly, as there is no separate room - it is just one large area.

Pros:
- Quiet
- Nice bathroom and kitchen
- Nice bed

Cons:
- No formal desk/work area (used the bar in the kitchen area instead)
- Other furniture (loveseat and chair) was not very comfortable
- Continental breakfast was subpar, even for a chain hotel, and not well serviced

If you're a business traveler (which is what I usually am), then I recommend this hotel. If you have a large family looking for a suite with a separate bedroom, you should look somewhere else.

Finally, if you plan on using the high speed internet, make sure you bring a CAT5 cable of your own. They do have free access, but it is wired only, not wi-fi.

We have stayed in most of the hotels on Valley View and love this one the most. The rooms are very spacious with a full kitchen, including dishwasher. I was impressed with the bathroom and vanity and with the living area. The rooms are big enough to stay comfortably without tripping over each other. The staff was very friendly. The only complaint is that the breakfast buffett is pretty minimal and the air conditioning a bit noisy.
