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 sized bed--discovered after putting my things in, going out and much later when I did not feel up to moving, it was queen sized. However, on the plus side, the bed was better than some economy motels I have stayed at. But, the microwave blower was on and we couldn't turn it off. Reported it to the manager who fixed it by pulling the breaker on it. The kitchenette was not overly clean and there were NO glasses of any sort there. The desk couldn't supply any, but I was able to get some stryfoam cups from the breakfast bar. Ah, the breakfast bar. By 7:30 it was wiped out except for neon colored cereal. All fruit gone. The juice dispenser was "froze up," I was told, ergo no juice. Forget breakfast there unless you hit them at 6:00 a.m. When I suggested that they should refill the items for those who prefer to eat their breakfast on vacation at a more decent hour, say 8:00 to 9:00 would have something. I was answered by a shrug of the shoulder from an employee. The people in the room next to ours said none of that bothered them as they had six stinky little baseball players in town for a game, and all they wanted was space to bed them down. So for this purpose it must be fine. Also, for workmen who just need a place to bathe and sleep. Not so great for someone to enjoy on vacation and visiting.
