After a series of discomfortures during a hospital stay, I attempted to indicate I liked...
'the visiters even less, I wrote, "I liked even less the two individuals who became main stay of my hospital stint." Any suggestions?
I liked even less the two individuals who became main stays of my hospital stint.
Assuming that you mean you liked them even less than you did before (or disliked them more), or that you have stated in a previous sentence what it is you like them less than, then your suggested revision is all right. However, "mainstay" is a single word, not two words; and since there are two of them they would be "mainstays," unless you intend to say that the two of them together constituted a single mainstay of your stint.
