Typical Mainstay, large room, clean no surprises. Snow was not shoveled at the front entrance. There were snowfall warnings through the night but no snow all day and checkin was 3:00. Went down for breakfast at 8:00 and there was no food At checkout I was passed off to someone else because I asked for a printed receipt. Neither asked asked my stay was or said have a nice day. No words were spoke just handed the bill eyes looking at the floor. Basically there was no customer service experience through checkout process. I would stay there again but only if it was the best price!

Don’t count on breakfast or any room service
Hotel was overbooked so even though I Booked a King bed, we were given a queen. They did put us in a suite, but it was virtually the same amenities as the room with a King had, so only difference was a door to the bedroom. We stayed 3 nights and breakfast was literally bread and butter with nothing else. I asked about any compensation since there was no breakfast and was told to speak to the manager who was not there. The keurig in our room did not work. We had to go to the front desk to exchange it. There was no room service. I was told that only happens if you stay 5 or 7 nights, the front desk agent wasn’t sure. One of the dining chairs had wax melted to the seat cushion. The sofa was very worn. 2 positives… same young man working at the desk during the day for our entire stay was ver polite and professional and the room itself was equipped with 2 burners, a dishwasher, and a refrigerator, which were all nice and clean. My sister and her family also had a room during the same time and the bathroom mirror had a cigarette left on top of the frame, there was garbage in the room, and it appeared the room hadn’t been cleaned from the last people who stayed in it, which made me wonder if bedding gets changed between guests.

Nice stay...terrible breakfast
We stayed for 5 nights lasr weekend for state wrestling. Room was huge and clean. Beds were comfy. Disappointed in workout room. Husband tried running on treadmill and kept turning off. No weights. Not much in there. But the breakfast was the worst thing about stay. Very stale bread. Only toast, bagel or chex cereal. Juice machine never worked right. I understand there was an efficiency kitchen, but not everyone wants to cook.
