Very nice , friendly hotel. We were fishing at Cape San Blas for a few days and camping is not our thing and a house rental out of our price range, but this hotel was perfect for our needs. Some very nice amenities, kitchenette including full fridge with freezer, stove top, microwave, dishwasher, plates pots & utensils. Small outdoor pool... More

I was not impressed with the location, 4-1/2 miles (East) of Port St. Joe. It sets back off Hwy 98, you could easily pass it; without noticing it was there. But; luckily we were looking for it, that's how we saw it! It was quite, we were on the East end of building. Not many channels on TV - about... More

Mainstay Suites was a very welcomed surprise for my husband and me. We read the reviews and decided on this hotel. We were not disappointed! From the hospitable customer service upon check in to the very clean, comfortable rooms. Great convenient location to anything you want to do in Port St. Joe and surrounding Cape San Blas, Mexico Beach and... More

Nice room with very friendly & helpful staff. There are not that many places within the city of Port Saint Joe as far as beach access but the smaller town is perfectly located 10-30 minutes away from Mexico Beach, Cape San Blas, Panama City Beach, and St. George Island. Plenty of great seafood restaurants around in Port Saint Joe as... More

Stayed here one night in August 2015. Didn't make reservations. Online said rooms available. Arrived and we took the last room. Wooo! Brought our boat ( as many others do). No designated parking for boats but several of us parked along the east side with no problem. Rooms were spacious and clean. Front desk staff was VERY friendly and helpful... More

Spent only one night passing through. The options are limited in this area, and this hotel is average. Staff was friendly and helpful with local meal options. Our room smelled of mildew which is not uncommon for Florida, but not acceptable.

Clean and comfortable. Staff was courteous and accommodating. Felt more like "home" and less hotel like. Pool was nice, as well. We had a two bed suite with pull out couch. As with most sofa sleepers, it was somewhat uncomfortable, but for the kids, it worked. Bathrooms were very clean. We were very happy with this stay.

The suites are spacious with separate bedroom and bath, and everything was very clean. The furniture was tired but adequate. There was a full sized refrigerator, two burner stove and microwave as well as glasses, dishes and silverware. The pool was very nice. Very quiet location.

Clean, Super nice staff priced right an good location. Lots of people bring their boats, parking is ample but tight, we managed with ours. Quiet and close to all local activities. Pool area has gas grills for your use that makes this a plus with kids. Overall great stay.

We had an excellent experience at the Mainstay. The accommodations were clean and very well maintained. The hotel staff was friendly and professional. Very helpful staff and always looking for ways to assist us during our stay. The pool was perfect for the hot days, and there were always plenty of towels at the pool and workout room. The staff...
