We have stayed in the Mainstay in Port St. Joe, on and off since January 29th. Garrett York is so patient and kind he is exceptional, he has gone above and beyond to make sure that our stay is comfortable. "He is a good guy!"

This my favorite hotel on the coast. Garrett is always kind & courteous. I like the level of professionalism I get here. Marci was very kind to me while I stayed in Port St. Joe while my mother was hospitalized there.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay. The room was clean and comfortable, but as others have noted, it is truly the staff that makes Mainstay Suites so special. Kudo's to Garrett for answering our many questions on the area and attractions, and to the entire staff for taking such wonderful care of us. We highly recommend Mainstay, and... More

The staff is always welcoming and friendly. I've stayed here one weekend a year for the past several years, and the front desk personnel are so helpful and friendly. The rooms are roomy and comfortable. It's one of my favorite hotels. ..

The motel itself was clean and welcoming. But the wonderful staff is what sets this apart from any other hotel! They were pleasant, kind, and caring, and not in that artificial sort of way. They went beyond what they were required to do in every aspect of taking care of two weary travelers and our pet! MANY THANKS! T Kester

The staff at the hotel was outstanding in every aspect. Garrette, Marcie, Mark and Tina are all true hospitality pros. This was my third stay, so I have had a chance to stay in several room configurations. My favorite being the partitioned suite with king size bed. The room consists of a fully appointed kitchen with stove. Really more like... More

My wife, service dog and I took an unexpected detour to Port St. Joe last week while returning from southern Florida. We stayed here only one night, but we wish it could have been longer to explore this hidden part of Florida. The hotel was very convenient to the route home. As always I love to brag on the staff....

I had never tried a MainStay Suites before. Now I wish that they were everywhere. Not only did the staff correct a duplicate reservation in the system, but I got the duplicate promptly refunded to my card. Special thanks to Garrett and Marci for their attention and advice. The suite was cozy and had everything I needed. I wish I... More

We were on a couple of days driving wedding anniversary vacation. Going to check out some museums and sites in Apalachicola Florida. Did not have reservations. Found this place and was very pleased with it. Garrette at the front desk went above and beyond in the friendly courteous service area. We stayed two days. Will definitely go again and recommend...
