MainStay Suites Ingleside
Ranked #5 of 5 Hotels in Ingleside
Reviewed 25 July 2011

Booked this hotel because most others nearby were sold out or just too pricey. Two adults, three kids. Walked in, place smelled horrible. Front desk guy appeared to be from India and we had very tough time understanding him (for the record, I am also a minority, so I am not being racist, just stating a fact). He was very nice, however.
Signed bill for $107 for the one night we were staying. After we left, I noticed on my online bank site that we were billed for $140!! Now I have to go spend time figuring out how it went from $107 to $140. In elevator, smells got worse. Carpet in room was in poor shape; loose strands of fabric on edges, etc. Room was very musty and smelled moldy. Bkfast was from 5am to 9am, which seems way too early and just a way to avoid getting a lot of people eating. The place is close to several restaurants and about 6 miles from the ferry to Port A. However, if you plan ahead a bit, I'm sure you will find a much better place to stay for this $$.

Had a wonderful stay at the Mainstay. All the staff were lovely and friendly and accomodated any request we made. The room was huge with a self contained kitchenette and fridge. It was an easy drive both to Corpus Christi and Port Aransas where we enjoyed driving around the beaches and going for dinner. Once a week, Mainstay put on a communal BBQ or similiar for everyone to mingle and meet others staying at the hotel - created a lovely atmosphere among patrons and staff. I would definately recommend this hotel for singles, couple or families.

This is one of the better hotels in Ingleside. The rooms bigger than the other hotels I stayed in. I like it when you stay long they have a full kitchen to accomidate your needs. You can cook full meals for you and your family and save money so you don't have to go out and eat every night. They have hot and continental breakfest served frsh every morning. And every wednesday they somthing different for dinner every week.

Our experience at the MainStays Suites in Ingelside was incredible! We walked into the room- it was huge! A great place for a family. Everything is brand new. The kitchen has a full size refridgerator/freezer, stove top, and sink. The bathroom was sparkling!!! The staff was so friendly and will get you anything you need. The free breakfast was delicious. Your choice of anything (bagels, cereal, biscuits/gravy, muffins, fruit...). It was 12 miles to Port Aransas and very close to Corpus Christi, too! We will definitely return as soon as we can!!!

Needed a room for one night and could find nothing reasonable in Port Aransas for last minute beach stay. Found Main Stay from reading TA. It was a simple drive from the beach to hotel...maybe 20-30 minutes. Check-in was easy. Room was really quite nice for a chain-type hotel. Comfy bed, nice size bath with granite counter, kitchenette set-up with full size frig, 2 burner stove, microwave and coffee maker, again granite counter tops. Clean enough to be comfortable!! For $89 bucks it was a good deal for the night. Breakfast is included but we didn't partake, just got up early and headed back to Port A for another beach day :)

Upon check-in we were given a room on the 3rd floor. Upon walking in the ironing board was out and when I walked in the bathroom tennis shoes were on the floor. I turned on the light and noticed the toiletries were still in the shower etc. I then went to the front desk to let them know either the room was still dirty or someone is still checked into that room. They put us in another similar room on the first floor. No one there but not exactly that clean. Mold still present in the grout in the shower. A q tip on the corner of the floor near the toilet. I guess they don't sweep. You can tell the microwave wasn't wiped down clean. You could still see grease smudges. Bed linen was ripped. Coffee maker didn't work. The next morning HOT water was coming out of the toilet tank. So if you had any items on top of the toilet tank it got hot as well. Transactions on credit card were incorrect. A/C didn't seem to be on in the hallways. The hotel wouldn't have been so bad if housekeeping was better. I expected better out of this place.
