October 2012
This hotel had the best reviews. It seems primarily geared toward families with kids though. At least this appeared to be the the demographic when I stayed there. In other words I'm saying it was kind of noisy. Other than that the room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Breakfast, not so hot. Wi-fi signal spotty and weak. All in all though this is a great value if you are in the area for a while and want a cheap, decent place to cook your own food and set up camp. That is if you don't mind little kids being little kids next door. If you're a business traveler, like me, maybe it's not the best choice. I'm going to keep looking for the "perfect" Choice Hotel in this area.

I was very surprised that the hotel was so accommodating. My husband and I traveled late into the night in the pouring rain to get to Charlotte and the front desk attendant even helped carry in our bags! The room was very clean and I was glad that it had a stove and full size fridge and stove! We will definitely be staying again!

I've saved this hotel as a 'favorite' on my GPS not only because it is pet friendly and very convenient to the interstate but moreover because the rooms are immaculate...no doggy smells...and the staff are genuinely pleasant and accommodating. I like the kitchenette convenience in the rooms and there is a nice selection of frozen snacks and TV dinners in their pantry shop which is quite nice not having to load up again and go to a restaurant after already traveling for hours. On my last stay, I learned the pet weight limit was 50#...which almost was my undoing as one of my two dogs is #80. But, after speaking with the manager he most graciously authorized my reservation and invited me back again...and I will certainly take him up on that!

We stayed one night during the demconvention. Price was kind of high during that day of convention but the other hotels around it was even higher. It was a very comfortable hotel and was surprised with the accomodation with their suites. It has refrigerator, cooking range and pots and pans if you want to cook in your room. Definitely will recommend this hotel because even the front desk Will was so nice. If we go back to Charlotte north Carolina, we will definitely come back to this hotel. I wish I can stay there for a week more but we have to go back to Florida.

Greetings TA family! My recent vacation took me to Charlotte NC 7/17-7/24. Needed a decent comfortable place to stay for a week that had free parking and "suite" like ammenities. MainStay Suites...MORE THAN FIT THE BILL! Everyone frm Mgr." Rene"," Natalie" and house keeping's "Lynn" were friendly, pleasant and accomodating. Continental breakfast was available with the "usual" items and though not elaborate, was fresh and plentiful. There is a decent restaurant just across the parking lot as well. Rm #227 faces the front parking lot (nice to be able to see your car) was as spacious as a studio apt equiped with a queen size (comfortable) bed and full size kitchen. Bathroom was a little small with great water pressure and HOT water (always a plus)! Though the decor was a little dated and "bland", the room was clean and free of those "strange" hotel stains and smells lol. There was a good size flat screen TV with a decent channel line up. Honestly, I feel it was a good value for $62 a night (AAA discount) and I place I would DEFINITELY stay at again! It's about 5miles from the convention center just before the SC border and just a couple of miles from shopping centers and places to eat. No complaints with this stay at all.

I needed a room on short notice when every hotel within 10 miles of Charlotte was booked for an event downtown. Mainstay was available and not only did the front desk clerk work her hardest to find a room so I could check in early, but also informed about repair men who were making rounds to fix every a/c unit in the building. And if you have no car, it's right near the Arrowood Lynx station and the 56 bus that takes you to three shopping centers, with a sit-down restaurant and three drive-throughs within walking distance. This is definitely a hotel I'll return to in future visits.

We started staying here about 5-6 years ago when we travel to Charlotte for the nascar races. We love it here. It is a little away from the track and race shops but not that far. Easy to get to things. Several restaurants and stores close by. The rooms are spacious and very clean. Room prices are very resonable during the races which is also part of why we are back every year. I am already booked for 2013. Good continental breakfast to get you started in the morning. Friendly staff, especially Janet who we met a couple of years ago during one of our stays and we usually see you every year and get to talk to you for a few minutes but unfortunately we somehow missed you this year. Saw you go into the office one day but didn't get to catch up to you. You usually remember us from year to year. I have nothing bad to say. Can't wait to see you's in May 2013. Thank you for your great service.
