We recently stayed here for one night on our way to the Florida Panhandle. No complaints at all. Clean, comfortable, decent breakfast and decent location not too far from downtown area. Good for an overnight stop and would stay again.

Stayed here during thunder beach bike rally. We had a king suite and it was bib, clean and quite. Staff was super nice and friendly. Two TVs in room one looked like an IPad hung on the wall and the channels are hard to figure out. Wife was disappointed with how long it took the water in the shower to... More

Stayed here one night on our trip through the Panhandle. Room was very clean, front desk exceptionally helpful. In a very convenient location, right on Hwy 98 and very close to the center of town. Easy to drive to restaurants and the center of town.

What we liked most was the friendly staff, whose service during a busy weekend was commendable. The on-duty managers with whom we dealt (Ryan and Tina) were thoughtful and considerate in their handling of a number of issues. Observation, not-so-bad: Although we had to mention it twice, a miscommunication about the room rate was addressed courteously and the error corrected.... More

Stayed here Christmas Eve and half of Christmas Day. Nice view and quiet. The only small issue was the cleaning service knocking a few times when we had an extended checkout planned already. Come here many times while visiting family in the area!

My family and I stayed here for the weekend. Unfortunately I booked through booking.com and did NOT receive the lowest price. However, the manager Marci and I worked together to procure the lowest price for me (which happened to be the military rate). I will never use a third party to book my hotel stays again, I will always call... More

What a nice surprise! It appears this Mainstay Suite property has been recently renovated. At first I thought it was brand new! Throughout the property the details are impeccably maintained. The reception was casual yet very accommodating and first class after an 13 hour day of travel. Rooms are spacious. As a Choice Privileges member, I primarily stay at Comfort... More

We had a room on the third floor at the end of the hallway. I'm not sure if it was because of the location but we didn't have internet access. There was an internet trouble shooting number which I called. He said that it was a hotel problem and he was going to call them. We never did get internet... More

I am a Choice Elite Diamond member, yet this was my first stay at a Main Stay Suites property. I can honestly say I was quite impressed. The staff at this Port St. Joe's property was very friendly and suggested a good restaurant and local activities. The property is a few miles East of the town right near the Hospital.... More

I have stayed here many times since they opened. This is a quiet, clean, well run property with a great staff. Breakfast is a bit spartan compared to some of the other major chains with no sausage, bacon or scrambled eggs And oh horror, no grits. There are waffles, boiled eggs, cereal and other breakfast basics.
