Another great stay. Facility is still undergoing renovation, so there are some less than stellar areas. Staff were pleasant and professional

I would definitely choose this property for my next visit to your area. I will also recommend it to family and friends.

I requested a wake up call and no call came in. I had 3 girls that I had to get ready for a flight and if it wasn't for me being an early riser and an alarm on my cell phone I could have missed my flight.

Convenient location for our travel. Very friendly staff

We stayed on the 3rd floor. We are not smokers and were in a non smoking room, but as soon as we got off the elevator the whole floor reeked of tobacco. The last night, our room also reeked. It was hard to sleep with the small and we left with our clothes smelling too.

Ease of check in and check out. Didn't mind sharing a pool with the neighboring hotel. Staff was pleasant and accommodating. Would consider staying here again, except I really wanted to be closer to the beach.

easy. nice personnel, quiet, good breakfast, helpful. I recommend.

Most of our stay we spent at the beach but when we got back to the room it was a comfortable stay. Clean room and clean restroom. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

My stay was great. Everyone was great. Every thing that I would ask for I would get. It was close to everything. The beach shopping and eating. All a round I had great time and stay. would do again. and I'm going to soon.

The hotel was precisely as advertised. It is a well kept property, inside and out. It is conveniently located about midway between Wrightsville Beach and downtown Wilmington. The staff was friendly and courteous and check-in was quick and easy.

We stayed here for my daughter's graduation from UNCW. We needed a handicapped accessible room for my mother and their room was perfect for her. Bathroom had a roll-in shower, and there was plenty of room in the suite. Kitchen had all we needed. It was close to school and town. Breakfast was average. I would stay here again if I go back to Wilmington

My significant other and I had an amazing stay at this Hotel. Great amenities and everything. Plan on staying again at this hotel.

Had a nice stay at this hotel. I would recommend it especially for extended stays.

Our family could not have been happier with MainStay! The staff was great!!! It was a very stormy weekend, and they let us check in early and actually check out late just to give us a couple of hours at the beach in between rain showers before we drove back home. I highly recommend this hotel!

Nice semi-central location for everything except not as close to beaches as desired. Stay was ok. Recliner was broken and never fixed as promised. Had to go get towels because they didn't bring them all day. Trash was not picked up. Furniture was dated. Beds were comfy. Good breakfast and pool.

Since this was a last minute Memorial Weekend trip most hotels were completely booked. I didn't want to spend more than $150 for a one night stay. Upon our arrival at the hotel I wasn't sure what to expect…average, I guess. The outside was well kept, and the building looked nice. We were greeted by a woman sitting at her desk; this was where we checked in. For me, the check-in process is usually how I base my judgement of the facility. OMG! I couldn't believe the hospitality we received…probably the best check-in service I have experienced--ever! The woman at the front desk was knowledgeable about the area and was able to recommend places/sights, and even offered directions. She continued to tell me about the hotel amenities, and the hours for the complimentary continental breakfast which I was completely unaware of. The next morning, my family and I were surprised to see that the breakfast was far more than the typical continental breakfast usually consisting of muffins, cold cereal, and maybe a waffle maker. This was the FREE continental breakfast from heaven. They offered so much more: bagels, toast, yogurt, pastries, muffins, hardboiled eggs, fresh fruit, hot oatmeal, grits, fresh fruit, sausage biscuits, apple and orange juice, coffee! And, they kept it coming! On top of all this, the woman who was in charge of the breakfast went to every table and asked if everything was fine, and if there was anything else she could get us. The hospitality and service were impeccable! Now, the only thing that created some disappointment was the room. I booked a nonsmoking room, but we were given a smoking room. The cigarette smell was so bad that all our clothes smelled of smoke the next day. Even running the a/c didn't get enough air flow to clear the odor. Luckily, I carry a can of febreze in my car that I was able to use to mask the odor. Other than the smoking room, everything else inside was nice and clean. It was actually better than I expected. It was the perfect size for my family of 5; complete with a kitchen, and living room area. When we visit the area again it will be for more than one night, and are most likely going to book a room at MainStay Suites. However, this time I will make sure it is a NON-smoking room.

Smart front desk lady,clean and comfort room, fantastic family getaway.we will stay here again.

Impressed, my first Main Stay Suites stay. Very clean, nice hotel, lots on the breakfast menu (which was complimentary), even outside gas grills were available for use.

I do apologize that the wake up call was not set during your stay. I will make note on who was to set up that call and speak with them to make sure they understand the wake up call procedure. I apologize again, and we wish you luck on your future travels.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our property. We are located a short, drivable distance from the beautiful wrightsville beach, but we offer better accommodations at a better rate than is available on the ocean front. I am so pleased to hear that our staff made your stay more pleasant as customer service is our top priority. We certainly hope you will choose our property for future accommodation needs in Wilmington!
