“Wonderful Stay”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

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 hope to stay with you again in the near future!

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

Room Tip: If you have a special need or want just ask. They sincerely accommodated all our requests.

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 a large studio apartment. In addition there are 2 flat sreen tv"s, one in the sleeping area and one in the lounging area. Many HD channels are availabe for your viewing enjoyment. There is an abundance of parking and a comp breakfast is offered every morning at 6 a.m. By the way, hot coffee is offered all day. There is a small well maintained swimming pool in the rear of the hotel and a covered BQ area as well. When traveling is this area do yourself a favor and experience this gem of a hotel.

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. Garrett Ford was the desk clerk upon our arrival. Wow, what a courteous young man. He was very helpful on local seafood places to eat dinner and directions to other town attractions. Our room was wonderful, a first floor two room suite with a full kitchen.
The room was clean and modern. We especially like the walk-in shower. Breakfast was the usual continental style, but it worked for us. We left early for a long days drive and it was too early to eat a large meal. Tina, the daytime desk clerk, was very attentive on making sure our checkout was correct.

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 could have stayed longer.
