I booked what I thought was a suite due to the description of the room. A suite is a separate bedroom with separate living accommodations and you generally have two televisions (one in the bedroom and one in the living room). Imagine my surprise when we walked in to our two queen with a pullout in the living area "suite"... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us, and especially for choosing MainStay Suites for your trip to Port St. Joe.

Researching on TripAdvisor before we booked, we found a limited number of places to stay in this area that could accommodate three persons in a room (we had our son with us). Based on past reviews we booked three nights (Fri to Sun inclusive) and the hotel was fully booked for the first two of them. The young man called... More

Englishlakedistrict, Thank you for your stay with us and for the shout-out to Ryan! He does a fantastic job for us, so we appreciate your mention. I would, however, like to apologize for the water pressure. I am not sure why the pressure was inadequate during your stay, but thank you for bringing it to our attention so we can... More

Not very clean...found desk chair with crums on it. Pillows are poor quality. No regular coffee in the room. Pool closes at 8 PM I stead of 9:00 or 10 PM. Staff at the desk was friendly. With a little more care this hotel could really shine.

veritas2210, Thank you for choosing to stay at MainStay Suites PSJ, but I apologize for the condition of your room. That is in no way indicative of the experience we aim to provide all of our guests, and hope, at some point, that we'll be able to earn back your business.

The Mainstay Suites in Pt St Joe exceeded my expectations as far as a long term hotel stay would be. My husband and I stayed a month while our home was being built, and felt "at home" while there. The room was clean, comfortable and well equipt for a longer term stay. What made this hotel stand out, tho was... More

We stay at this hotel every year over Spring Break with our 3 kids. And there's a reason we keep coming back. It's clean, the rooms are large and have everything we need, super friendly staff, and the location is perfect. Removed from the craziness of Panama City but in a sleepy little coastal town with one of our favorite... More

The hotel was great, the pool is wonderful and it is close to the State park. We were there for 3 days and did not have any problems. The breakfast was good and you could also fix breakfast in your room. I so enjoyed being able to cook in the room. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable of the... More

So we loved our cute little room and made breakfast and dinner several times. The bathroom was just the right size with lots of counter space. I would say the negatives were children running up and down the hallways until past 11:00pm. Our a/c unit wet the carpet on that side of the bed so every time I got in... More

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The price was also very reasonable. Our room was very clean and we had everything we needed from a stove, fridge, cups, plates, etc. We ate a free breakfast each morning at the hotel and then enjoyed our day exploring the area and beaches.

My husband and I are traveling with children and since this was our first visit to the "forgotten coast" we were unsure if booking a rental property for a week was the best idea. Most rentals lock you in the full week and/or will not let you rent per night. Enter Main Stay Suites. This ended up being the perfect... More
