“A Nice Stay”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

The hotel pretty much sit in the middle of nowhere but even that doesn't take away from how great it is. The hotel is very clean. The rooms are spacious and comes with an actual sitting area separate from the bedroom. It's just like a many apartment with all the necessities such as a many fridge & sink complete with dishes.

Very nice clean hotel.We had reserved a suite with two bedrooms online but due to a glitch with the site it was already rented so they gave us two seperate rooms at no extra charge,appoligized for the problem, they could not have been nicer.Looking forward to staying here again.

Great service at the front desk. I was pleased with the overall condition and cleanliness if the hotel. I was in town for business this time so beach front/view wasn't important to me. The rooms have a small kitchen for extended stays. Beds were comfortable and shower felt great at the end of the day. When I return for business I will stay here again.

I really wish we could have stayed longer at this location. The room was great. The kitchen area is a plus. Everything we needed was there. We both have hospitality experience so we tend to be a little critical, but this was very clean and well maintained. I can't comment on the breakfast, because we slept right through it! The staff was helpful answering all of our questions.

Every time I travel to the Port St. Joe area I stay here. Never disappointed with anything at this Hotel. The rooms are always fresh and clean and the kitchen area is a plus. The breakfast is just enough and the staff is always gracious.

Room Tip: Never had a bad room!

Its a clean, modern interior corridor motel as you would expect from Mainstay Suites but it has issues. The TV is an old tube type television with 12 channel, basic cable. That sucks. Then the internet starts dropping in and out with DNS issues. If you know the workaround, you get internet, if not, you don't. Its a pretty average mid level chain motel. However, I gave the lower rating for this reason. Our door lock failed when we got back from dinner. No lights at all, no red light, no green light. I suspect the batteries in the lock are dead. So the desk clerk got a regular key and opened the door. Then she gave me the key, remarking that it was the only one on the property. I can go to town and have a copy made that will allow me to enter this room anytime i want. That is not acceptable unless they are going to re-key the door lock, and that's unlikely. But, this is the only chain motel, meaning fairly predictable quality assurance controls, in Port St. Joe.

Family, including us, stayed at the Mainstay in Port St.Joe for a gathering to celebrate my father-in-law's 80th Birthday. The hotel was comfy and cozy and the staff outstanding. The desk woman even went out of her way to find us a dog sitter so we could have a nice lunch in a nice restaurant! They really seemed to care that we have the best time possible. Everyone, including the maid was friendly and welcoming. The room was perfectly clean and our suite had a kitchen, living room set up that allowed us to enetertain, as well. We loved being here.

Room Tip: We had a nice room w/kitchen, living room and 2 TVS..reasonably priced.
