This is nice place to stay. We weren' expecting to have a kitchenette in the room we stayed in. Especially for the rate we paid. Very reasonable price. Comfortable beds, ac cooled really good. Stayed for 2 night, then ended up staying for a third one. We'd stay here again.

I had recently been burned by an establishment and being leery about staying in a hotel again I was skeptical. But upon arrival I asked the desk clerk if I would be able to view the actual room I would be staying in and she was prompt on handing me the key and said if it didn't fit our needs... More

As a choice hotel manager I have stayed in many hotels that need improvement. Been a general manager of a hotel myself I know what to look for in a room. All I can say is that the room was clean. However, the smell coming from the hallways was horrible and the room also had a musty smell that was... More

Just spent three nights at the MainStay Suites in Port Arthur. Had enough points for three free nights. And I got my money's worth--just about. As has been said, the second floor corridor smells like a combination of poop, mildew and boiled cabbage! Strangely, though, the room did not smell all that bad. However, I had asked for a king...

We decided to go on a roadtrip this christmas and our first stay was in port aurthor at the Mainstay Suites. Even though this hotel is on the main highway our GPS had a bit of a hard time locating it, so we called the hotel. The front desk clerk told us she wasnt very good at giving directions so... More

Had to find a hotel within government per diem rates in Port Arthur at the last minute and Mainstay Suites was only one available. As Chase71 says the smell in the second floor hallway was unbearable. The smell entering the room was worse. I had to run out and purchase Air Freshener. My room was directly behind the elevators although... More

In 2009 I spent a total of 4 months at this hotel. I stumbled across this place due to another Extended type hotel not being available. Every room has a kitchen W/dishwasher and fridge. Staff is friendly, Housekeeping everyday... I feel like Family at this hotel. When ever I am in the Port Arthur area working this is the place... More

I dislike knocking a property from the start of a review but everyone considering this hotel needs to be aware. I stayed on the second floor. When you exit the elevator the entire 2nd floor hallway smells like it's a smoking floor. But it's not over yet. Once you exit the hallway to enter your room the smell is instantly... More

We arrived as a small group. Then we grew to a large crew, each immensely different in personalities but that didn't mean a thing to the staff at the Port Arthur Mainstay. From day one, and I was the sixth arrival of a later group of 60, we had a home. A safe home! The area was devasted by Hurricane... More
