I booked on online which was convenient but was given a room that didn't match what I reserved. The room was extremely small, had no couch, no small patio and no easy chair to sit , but instead was given a business room. I found the hallways and walls looked like they could use a facelift. The front desk personnel...

Sometimes online booking doesn't result in a room type that you really want. If you enjoy the convenience of online booking may I suggest that once you book your reservation online that you then contact the hotel directly to inquire about specific features of the room that you booked to be sure you are getting the amenities that you desire....

Spent two nights here. I did not have my dog with me but lots of other people did. The room was clean, the couch a bit worn. However the outside door and the kitchenette was very handy. The breakfast was rather lame. How do you ruin oatmeal? hmmm. At least there was boiled eggs and the gravy was good over...

good family hotel. Kids loved the pool and the breakfast. Room was small for all the beds but the amenities were very good and useful. full refrigerator, microwave and cooktop. Room was clean but the area around the elevator could have used a good vacuuming.

Stayed over for 3 days. Located just a little out of town but close to Cape San Blas and a short drive to Apalachicola. A good quite location. We did experience a problem with an alarm chirping in our room just after check in. Staff responded immediately & we moved to another suite. Room was spacious & clean, furniture shows...

Thank you for pointing out our great central location. We are not directly on the beach but we are just a short (10-20 minutes) drive to the beaches and other local areas of interest. We are sprucing up our guestrooms so please come back and check out our updates!

I stayed for business one night and the staff were very hospitable. The room was clean and the temperature was self-controlled which was very nice. The room was spacious and there were plenty of towels, pillows, etc. The breakfast choices were varied and appealed to a variety of tastes. The rooms were quiet and I felt secure staying there. I...

Usually, when there aren't many hotels in an area, those that are there don't feel very obligated to provide a quality experience. Not the case for this Mainstay Suites. Very clean rooms, smiling and helpful staff, tasty breakfast. Being there for a 9 day business trip, I dreaded living out of a hotel. But our room was fully stocked, clean...

This is not a 5-star resort/hotel, but I gave it 5 stars because they were so accommodating. They didn't get the message we were bringing our dog (they do allow pets) and had a guest that was dog-allergic on our floor, but they made arrangements so that it wasn't an issue for us. We had wanted to add a night,...

We stayed one night this past weekend on our anniversary. We liked the fact it is 3 miles out of town, so it was quiet. The room was clean, the bed was comfy and the gal at the desk was super! They are pet-friendly, but they have those rooms on one end of first floor, so I figure you can...
