The beds are advertised as queen beds they are full size beds instead. Requested non smoking room when booking and received smoking room at check in. Had to leave window open during stay.

Room with separate bedroom

Pros: The layout of the room was good. The breakfast had a lot of choices. The morning staff (especially Shelly) was very pleasant and helpful.
Cons: The whole place could use an update, but for sure the sofa bed mattress needs replacing.
Location: We were in town to visit relatives, but enjoyed the Fenelon Elevator. Cheap and fun. Great views.
We needed a separate bedroom, so that was the selling point. However, the sofa bed had no linens. I asked for them to be brought up but finally had to go find linens because the clerk forgot. The sofa bed was horribly uncomfortable.

Great Stay

We have a great experience at this MainStay. The rooms were spacious and VERY clean. We loved that it had the kitchen. The frig was the big hit. My kids could actually keep their drinks cold. We contacted the staff for extra towels and they were very helpful and had the towels right up to us. Breakfast was great. They even had biscuit and gravy. We will definitely be back. We have relatives in the area.

arrogant manager

staff was not well trained,manager was rude arrogant and much more worried about getting our money than making sure we had a good stay.manager acted like she owned the place,maybe she did but from our experience and some of the others i've read online she better not be banking on repeat business.
