Chateau Motel
Ranked #30 of 48 Hotels in Panama City Beach
Reviewed 5 May 2011

Me and my friend went to PCB for Bike Week in April 2011. Our stay at the Chateau was good. We got checked in right away upon arrival. Front desk staff was friendly. Rooms are small but clean and for the money it was a great value. We didn't go to stay in the room all day anyway. If you are looking for an affordable, clean motel this is for you. Housekeeping was very polite and always had clean towels ready when we needed them. Parking is right in front of the motel so you do not have to cross any streets. Motel sits right on the beach. Be sure when you make your reservation you tell them you want to overlook the pool. That's the best view. All rooms view the ocean. Great time was had!

Room Tip: Over looking the pool has the best view.

Perfect location and friendly staff. Relatively clean and modernized considering it is an older hotel. Seems like they really try to keep it up. The bed was comfortable and they do not use bed spreads. Instead, there were about 3 layers of sheets with a heavy, cotton waffle weave blanket in between. I liked that. They did have a folded fleece blanket at the end of the bed. Unfortunately, the ones on each bed were dirty. We did not use them. We brought our own blankets anyway, so we did not complain. I am sure the staff would have accommodated us as they were friendly enough. The biggest problem that we had were the idiot punks drinking beer through a funnel in and by the pool. We have a young child and he observed this. There was a group of about 10 of them. They were loud and rowdy. I complained to the staff then watched and waited. They acted like they were going to do something about it, but 15 minutes went by with no change. It took me standing on the balcolny filming and taking pictures of their actions, before the group moved to the beach to continue there. All in all, it was a good trip, but obviously they have the reputation for allowing this sort of thing or people wouldn't feel so comfortable with doing such things right in broad daylight in front of everyone--especially children!!!!

Beginning with the excellent service at the front desk, and ending with our checkout....everything was great. You learn alot from the staff you meet upom check in. I must say, you have some great people, expecially Jessi. She is knowledgeable and if she doesn't know the answer, she finds it quickly.
Cleaning staff was great, room was always clean and neat.
We will be back again.

I stayed for 5 nights with 3 other girls. When we arrived, check-in was very fast and efficient. When we went to our assigned room, our key wouldn't open the door. After a few attempts, the room's occupant came to the door to see what we needed. The receptionist had double booked the room! Luckily, the room next door was open and we were given that room instead.
The room was decently sized. Two beds, a tv, a table, and a kitchenette. The appliances were outdated, but for the price we didn't expect anything fancy.
The best part of our stay was the ocean front view from the balcony. It was beautiful! The beach wasn't bad either. (There was a lot of june grass, but that wasn't the hotel's fault, so I can't really complain.)
So far, our trip seems good, right? That's until the last night. Upon arriving back in our room at about 2 am, we noticed some little black dots on one of the beds. Upon closer examination, we realized that it was MOUSE POOP! Being that it was so late, and we were too drunk to really care at the time, we decided to just all sleep in one bed. The next morning, we told the front desk. They sent in a housekeeper to take the bedding away, and a few minutes later a man came with BUG SPRAY and said he was here to debug the room.
We were given no discount, no consolation, nothing. Just a, "We're sorry. It won't happen again." THAT is what made us most mad. That the management didn't even seem to care! Other than that fiasco, the room was fine. But because of this, we will never be back, no matter what the price.

My family and I have stayed here several times. Loved it always. We felt it was our second home and the staff was always pleasant. Last year 2010, we had to cancell out vaction due to, I will be honest, the oil spill. We were bringing our grand-daughter for the first time to the beach. Due to the media telling us that the spill was headed to PCB we cancelled with great regret. We ended up at Mrytle Beach and hated it! This year 2/5/11 I called to make reservations and was greeted by the rudest,hateful receptionist I have ever encountered. Jessica needs a lesson in customer service! She was in a hurry apparently and did not have time to be help with reservations. I felt let down and not welcome. On calling back I got Ashley, who was even worse! So after 14 years of staying at the Chateau we decided we will go on down the beach where we were greeted with helpful staff and were told they would accomdate our part of 7 for 7 days with no problem. In fact we saved $350 dollars and staying on the beach as well. This will be our last family vacation as a group...because kids grow up and the Chateau was what they requested, but the chateau doesn't want our business anymore.
