    Bathrooms need fan was so hot and damp after a shower. Need more cookware and utensils, platesn and cups. We had services for 3 but had 6 staying in the room. What's the point of getting a kitchenette if you can't cook anything.

    Hotel overbooked
    We booked a room with two queen beds and a sofa bed and paid extra for the larger room. When we arrived the manager said the room we booked was no longer available and the only rooms left were 1 queen bed with a sofa bed. This did not fit the description of the room we booked and paid a no refundable fee for. It also did not fit the needs of our family. We were given two rooms that we were told were across the hall but they were across and down the hall. Both rooms smelled musty and in one room there was a large chocolate on the floor. This gave me little confidence that the room had been sanitized before we checked in. The hotel told us the mistake of overbooking was fault but said it is the hotels fault. Disappointing customer service from both the hotel and the website. Needless to say, it was late and there were no hotels available in the area so we ended up splitting our kids up between the two rooms and my husband and I sleeping in separate rooms. Not the vacation I had in mind when I booked.

    This place was awesome! Looks brand new. Not sure how old. Great room and service. Breakfast was hampered by covid restrictions but they did the best they could.

    All good breakfast fell short.
    With all restrictions they were great. We went down for breakfast at 8:30 and only cereal was out, juice shut off. We calculate the breakfast in the price we pay.

    Good place to stay.
    Had a great stay here and even though it was during the time of pandemic it was clean and provided a comforting stay without stress. Beds were kinda wore out but the rest of the room was better than I expected. Great place to stay.

    Exceptional service in an unusual time.
    MainStay Suites provided us a clean, well-maintained, comfortable room. It also provided us a sense of normalcy amid the 2020 COVID-19 crisis.

    The computer system was down and very hard to check in. Person at desk was very rude about the making a copy of my credit card which I really didn’t feel comfortable doing. Reminds me that next time to just pay ahead of time and not mess with the paying at hotel crap.
