    Not good housekeeping!
    We stayed here one week. We had requested daily housekeeping, at minimum to change out the trash and get us fresh towels. Three times when we arrived late at night after a long day of hiking, ECT..., We got all the way up to the fourth floor of our room and realized nothing had been done. We had to go all the way back downstairs, request towels and a trash bag. It was very frustrating. I asked for a room so we could sweep our own floor because they would not, and they said they would sweep it but even that took 3 days and it only happened two different times while we were there for a week!

    Clean, comfortable stay.
    We had another good experience. Room and entire motel clean and well maintained. Good limited breakfast selection due to Covid concerns. Will definitely stay with Mainstay again.

    Loved this place!
    My husband and I drove from Pennsylvania and stayed here for a few days, and we really enjoyed our stay. The whole place was very clean, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the price was VERY reasonable for the king size suite. The continental breakfast was pretty typical but I have definitely had worse at other hotels. I highly recommend MainStay Suites! Thanks for a great stay!

    3rd Room's a Charm
    The check-in was not smooth. First, I was given a room that was not cleaned. I went downstairs and they switched me to another room. We get to that room and it was the wrong room--about half the size. Down to the desk again, expressing this and then it was on to room #3. This one was right! And the rest of the stay was fabulous. Comfortable rooms and beds...a room ideal for our needs.

    Labor day trip
    Comfortable beds and plenty of space for family. Housekeeping did a great job of cleaning but overall the hotel is run down. Shower curtains need changed. Fridge in room didn't cool. Elevator was scary. Made noises and I was worried. Pool is big. Breakfast is nothing special. Overall staff was friendly but did hear them making fun of a guest who had left. So that's not cool. Overall we were comfortable but probably won't stay here again.

    Comfortable, clean rooms.
    Although the room could accommodate 4 only enough towels and dishes were available initially for 2. Parking is also a little bit of an issue.

    The room did not seem as clean as I would like with Covid going around. The outside of all of the door didn't look like they had been wiped down in a while which made me wonder about the door handle. Aso funiture inside lookes a bit dusty, not too bad but I had to wipe down all surfaces just in case. Also the dishes were not stocked well with only two spoons, forks etc.. We had 4 people in the room. otherwise the hotel was fine just a bit dated.

    Great time!
    I was very nice but breakfast was pretty much just cereal. Kind of sad. Other than that it was beautiful and everyone was so nice! Very comfortable to come back to and rest after a busy day.
