Facilities are extensive, with an indoor pool, hot tub, fitness center, convenience store, and laundry room on-site. There’s no lunch and dinner restaurant, but guests are served a free continental breakfast that earns mostly praise for its spread of cook-your-own pancakes and cold items. The 93 spacious units all come with sofa beds, full kitchens, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi. Those who don’t need a suite with a kitchen and want to stay closer to the downtown core might consider the Hampton Inn & Suites Casper.
Modern chain hotel with spacious suites and pool, draws mostly extended-stay guests

Guests gather here and around the indoor pool and hot tub. The hotel draws both leisure and business travelers.

Spacious contemporary units with kitchens, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi
The MainStay features 93 spacious efficiencies, studios, and one- and two-bedroom Suites. The units have a modern chain-hotel look but they're still fairly inviting, with light-wood furniture and art on walls. They’re done in a warm, muted color scheme, with orange accenting headboards, sofa beds with a green-and-gold leaf-print, and some have gold bedspreads or decorative throws. Each unit has a kitchen with two-burner stovetop, full-size refrigerator, sink, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, cookware, tableware, and dishwasher. Sofa beds, 32-inch flat-screen TVs (larger Suites have second TV set) with HBO, and free Wi-Fi also come standard. Larger Suites have living areas. Bathrooms are spacious and well-lighted and have hairdryers, make-up mirrors, and shower/tub combos.

The heated swimming pool is about 15 meters long and is situated in an indoor space with a small hot tub and deck with lounger chairs. The fitness center has cardio equipment, a weight-training machine, and flat-screen TVs. There's no lunch or dinner restaurant on-site, but the hotel serves a free continental breakfast with a wide range of cold items, make-your-own pancakes, and microwaveable egg-and-sausage sandwiches.
