“Clean spacious rooms”
Reviewed 6 September 2011

Larger than than standard hotel rooms, and cleaner than most hotels. Despite what other reviews said my bed was very comfortable. The sheets and pillow cases were soft and fresh feeling instead of thin and bleached to death which common for hotel chains. I would definitely stay here again.

Mainstay Suites is one of only a handful in Port St. Joe, and the only national chain represented there. This hotel was immaculate inside and out and more than suited our needs. Nice little self-serve continental breakfast, easy to find, clean, well appointed room and pleasant staff. This is not a complaint but rather an honest observation... in nearly every respect the best word to describe this hotel is "compact." Our "suite" was one room w/ a separate bath and a sofa bed at the foot of our queen size bed. Hallways were narrow, pool was tiny, dining room and lobby were small, etc. This hotel is not on the beach but it's a short drive. It's in a pretty wooded setting, off the main drag but easy to find. The continental breakfast was average but lacked any alternatives for the health conscious guest - no whole grain breads or cereals or even skim milk. The bed wasn't real comfortable either - a bit on the hard side. Other than that though, it was a great find and a bargain with our corporate discount. Wouldn't hesitate to chose this hotel again.

This is great place to stay if you have a pet. The staff "Miss Pat" was very nice. The room was clean and had pleanty of room; we had a stove, dishwasher, microwave and frig and dishes and everything that you would need. The pool was great. We asked for clean towels and we got them right away and they cleaned our room very good when we went out.

I really like this hotel. We were just staying over for the night. The beach was around the corner on a beautiful five minute drive. The room fit us well using the pullout for my son. I felt well rested the next morning.

Reviewed 25 December 2010

We are very familar with the St. joe area but had never stayed at the Mainstay Suites so I decided to give it a try. I must say this place is the pits. We had our dog with us. I did not know that they would put us in such a bad room just because we had our dog with us. The bathroom smelled of urine so badly that we could not leave the door open. We refused to shower in there. The carpet was ripped up. The sinks drained very slowly. Thank goodness we were there only one night. We always travel with an air cleaner and Lysol. Let me tell you we used them both on that trip. My dog lives in much better surrounding than that place.
