This hotel was a little gem tucked between the hospital and college between Port St Joe and Appalachicola. I was pleasantly surprised -- the hotel was spotlessly clean and our room great for a week -- comfortable king-sized bed and pull out sofa -- more like a little apartment including a kitchen! The pool was refreshing -- need a hot... More

The room was cleaned with a spray can . We had to sleep with the window open in order to stand the smell and with the window open the highway noise was loud. The elevator was dirty. The WiFi didn't work. . We are all done with this type of hotel. Good luck.

We booked this room for it's location and price. We were about 15 minutes from Cape San Blas beaches and very close to the town of Port Saint Joe. Hotel is newer and clean, staff was friendly. Breakfast was basic, no waffles but had muffins, cereal, oatmeal, bagels. There is coffee and cookies in the lobby during the day and... More

The hotel is a bit off the beaten path, but it's very close to both downtown Port St. Joe and Cape San Blas beaches. The rooms were spacious -- especially recommended is the 1-bedroom queen suite, which gives a bit of extra privacy for families with kids. The pool was clean and fenced in well for kids' safety. The breakfast... More

We plan our Spring beach trip around my grand daughter's birthday, and for the second year in a row, we chose to stay at Mainstay Suites. We were impressed with the hotel and the staff last year, and this year was just as good. Rooms are clean and comfortable , nice pool that the kids enjoyed, close to the state... More

Nice, Clean, and good price. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised when we walked into the room. They made the most of the space available. I was really surprised to see a small kitchen included, to include pots & pans, and a dishwasher. The refrigerator is large compared to any other hotel. The bathroom had allot more room then...

We checked in this hotel as we wanted to horse back ride on the beach. (Birthday bucket list) and it was close to the beach. I must say from the time of check in until check out, each staff member from the desk clerk to the house keepers, were the friendliest and accommodating people I have encountered in a long... More

Our experience was simply perfect at this lovely hotel. We stayed here for only 2 nights at the start of the Memorial Day weekend. Though it is a little off the coast and about 3 miles east of the downtown/marina area of Port St. Joe, we would definitely stay here again. Small drive (about 15-20 minutes) to reach the town...

This is a nice hotel for a family wanting to save money while vacationing. It was like staying in a studio apartment. Stocked with everything needed to prepare a nice meal in the room. Hotel was clean, bed was comfortable and staff was pleasant. Breakfast was nice as well.
