We spent a couple of nights at the Mainstay Suites and found the staff incredibly pleasant and friendly. I think they are the only hotel in Port St Joe. The hotel seriously needs a renovation. The mattress are old and lumpy the bedding is old and worn. It just looks tired. Breakfast is included which is coffee , toast, cereal,... More

My family members gathered from around the country for Thanksgiving in Port St. Joe in 2010 and 2014. Both times, we lodged at this Mainstay Suites, a hidden gem and a remarkable bargain. Instead of bumper to bumper traffic and trash along the highways, this pristine area is reminiscent of old-style southern elegance and charm, with winding roads along the... More

In area where there aren't many hotels, it was nice to find this one. My wife and I have never experienced a friendlier staff. They were always there for us even in the middle of the night for a cool drink or an extra blanket or to offer advice on what to see and do. The continental breakfast was good.... More

My husband and I traveled to Port St. Joe Florida recently to look at the birds and enjoy the regional food. We got a Groupon deal at the MainStay Suites there. The hotel was clean and the staff was pleasant and helpful. We had an ongoing issue we the key card that opened our door but, the staff tried everything... More

We stayed the middle of Oct. For a 2 night stay. Not many places in Port St Joe to choose from so, after reading reviews, we decided on Mainstay. We had a two bedroom queen suite on the third floor. In the master bedroom by the window ( where a vacuum could not fit), there were cracker crumbs, dust and... More

We extended our stay because we enjoyed this hotel so much. The desk clerks went out of their way to accommodate. We had a king suite which was a spacious place to spend four nights. There's a kitchenette and sitting room. The breakfast included fresh hot oatmeal and great coffee which was my favourite. It was too chilly for the... More

My husband and I were in Cape San Blas on business. The staff was super friendly upon check in. We were pleased with the size, cleanliness and overall layout of the room. We were there for 2 nights and I appreciated the kitchenette. I think it is a very good value and will be staying there again.

There's a lot to like about this hotel. It's reasonably priced, and the staff are the friendliest and most helpful I have encountered at any hotel anywhere. They greet you when you come in and are always ready to help with anything. One nice young man at the front desk gave me some aspirin for a headache. And another nice... More

My wife and I stayed here for three nights for a vacation on the coast. This is a very clean facility with a friendly staff. Our dog escaped and the staff helped us get her before she made it to the highway. But we will not likely be staying here again, mostly because of the location, but also because our... More

We stay here every year for the big bass tournament. Not just the guys but the wives and kids too. Our stay is usually one night but we did two this year and it was wonderful! The staff is very friendly, and the rooms are nice and clean. This hotel has the best continental breakfast I have ever had with... More
