We really liked the Mainstay. The rooms were spacious and not only were they clean but they had a clean and fresh smell to them. Beds were comfortable and it was nice having a refrigerator. The pool felt like bath water, which we did not mind at all being as our pools at home are very chilly. The free breakfast...

Ocala, Florida
Reviewed 25 July 2016

Worn out furniture, especially the lumpy bed. Stained carpeting and tv sets which required a Degree in Communications to operate. Breakfast the next morning was no big deal, we decided to get some breakfast on the road instead.

Dear HappyFloridians, I too am a happy Floridian:) Born and raised in the sunshine state! Your review of your recent stay "stings" a little, but we want you to know that we have already replaced most of the box springs and mattresses with more arriving daily to complete the job. We are converting all of the queen deluxe suites into...

We stayed 4 nights here for a quick trip to the beach. I have mixed feelings about this place. First for the positives. The room was nice enough and was a reasonable rate. The staff was friendly. The pool was great, my kids really enjoyed it. I had never had any interest in staying somewhere with a pool before since...

We are traveling from Tampa to Texas and decided to include a detour at port st. Joe as part of our itinerary. I reserved my room via Expedia several months in advance, and thinks to cyber crossed wires wound up with two identical reservations, although Expedia claimed I only had one.

The room was clean, comfortable and homelike. The staff was courteous. We certainly enjoyed our stay and would recommend Mainstay to all my friends and associates. We really enjoyed the area and the closeness to the Gulf and other points of interests.

This hotel had the best rating on trip advisor of the handful of hotels in this area. We typically stay at a Hampton Inn or similar hotel when we travel, and this was below that level. The bed was very hard. The room was dated, but ok. Everything was clean. Full fridge in the room was nice. We did not...

We are pleased that you enjoyed your clean, albeit a bit "dated", guest room. I'm sorry you found the mattress not to your liking. We have recently purchased double pillow top mattresses and we have been getting very good feedback on them. The maintenance team is checking out the a/c in that room to find out what is making all...

There isn't alot of options in Port St. Joe for hotels. The Mainstay was very nice. The suite was a very comfortable size and had a kitchenette. Full size refrigerator, 2 burner stove, dishwasher and basic dishes for 2. One night we went to the fish market and brought back our dinner to cook. Checking in and out was easy....

We are pleased that you enjoyed our guest services and amenities! You are correct that we do not have a waffle maker, we do however offer biscuits, sausage, gravy, and hard boiled eggs.
