Bonifay, Florida
Reviewed 27 June 2016 via mobile

We stayed here with 14 other friends for an amazing fishing trip. Great rooms, great accommodations. Big enough for all of us to stay. Great Pool & complimentary breakfast. Clean rooms - cold air - kitchenette, who could ask for more? Book in advance as a party & get a discount !!

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. The juice and yogurt are in the lobby next to the coffee urns which we have noticed that sometimes we need to point them out to guests....

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.
