This is a decent Extended Stay Hotel in South Burlington, VT. It is sited up a hill from the main drive and some rooms have views out towards the Lake. It shares it's location with a couple of other hotels that are operated by the same owners. The rooms are all suites with kitchens. This hotel is similar in concept...

I just got back from 2 nights at the Mainstay property. I found it to be spacious - large bedroom with king bed (extra pillows and blanket in closet), large living area and kitchen area, balcony with great views of the Lake (4th floor). Breakfast was included and offered french toast, waffles, juice, muffins, cereal, yogurt, fruit and pop tarts....

The Mainstay is with others owned by the same people so you can use the pool/whirlpool at the H-I Express as well. Breakfast was typical but very nice. Rooms large and clean and modern. I found no problems staying here. Unless there are few people, the larger parking lots that are shared are where you will park (not right in...

I booked my stay at this hotel based on the reviews I read here. I was in town for a rugby tournament and needed a place to crash for one night. My overall feeling was the hotel was just ok. It is a chain hotel. I did not expect it to be anything fantastic, however, I did expect it to...

We stayed at this property for one night on our way to Boston. The hotel is part of a collection of 4 hotels and a restaurant off the main road (Hwy 7) in South Burlington. This makes for quite a quiet location, and being up the hill gives the upper floor rooms a lovely view of Lake Champlain. The lobby...

Stayed for two separate 1-night stays in May. We stayed here in October 2005, and everything seems to be the same. We booked a 1-bedroom suite which offers a separate bedroom from the living and kitchen area. These suites are mini apartments, and rooms on the 4th (top) floor offer views of Lake Champlain. The kitchen is stocked with dishes,...

A nice hotel. Rooms were large with a full kitchen, living area with TV and a separate bedroom with another TV. A little difficult to see from Route 7. Upper floors have a view of the lake.

We spent one night at the MinStay Suites in South Burlington. It's in a good locationi for a visit to the Shelburne Museum and for a visit to the town of Burlington. It is located in a cluster of hotels on Shelburne Road. The Suite was spacious and the decor was very nice. There was an abundance of TV Channels....

the room was very nice (spacious, clean, amenities [kitchen with a real fridge]). everything seemed new and of course clean. it was kind of romantic at the sunset (my room was on the lake champlain side). a huge supermarket (Shaw's) is only a few minutes drive away. my only complaint is the difficulty of finding the building from the street....

Decent place. I found the staff at the front desk (it really *is* a desk here) were friendly. The room : - was quite clean, -had a balcony with a fantastic view of the lake and mountains - had a comfortable bed What I found interesting was that it was fully stocked with cutlery, dishes, pots, stove, microwave, - even...
