“Great location!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

An old friend and I took a short trip to the beach and based on price choose the Chateau! All in all it's an okay place! The room was very clean and the view was awesome! We stayed in one of the cabanas and the only problem is they are two stories down from the parking lot and there isn't an elevator!! There aren't any carts and it's very difficult to get your stuff down there! If you don't bring a robust teenager, you may have a problem!! Although, once you do get down there, you can't get a better view nor access to the beach!! Service was great, staff was very friendly, bed was comfy, great trip!!!!!!!

This was an awesome place to stay for our vacation to Panama City Beach. Our room was clean, we could open our room door and step right onto the sand with just a few steps and head for the ocean. The service was great, the pool was great, the Treble Hooks bar at the pool was great,and the views were fantastic. It was close to everything and so much was within walking distance. We will definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: If you want to be right on the beach get a cabana room.

I would not recommend to anyone! The room was nasty. The shower is covered in mold and we had bugs. We kill three huge like cockroach things. They came in a sprayed and the bugs kept coming back. We wanted to check out and go home but they WILL NOT give us the money back. Its a lot of money to pay for a room to have to deal with huge roaches.

Over all, a great place to stay. All of the front desk people were always extremely helpful and kind. Even the housekeeping people were kind and cheerful. Everything was very clean and everyone went out of their way to be helpful. I thought these things only existed in extremely expensive 5 star places to stay. Pretty amazing to see at a value priced motel. Will definitely stay there again. This was one of the nicest motels I`ve stayed in for the cost. They are also pet friendly. You will be glad that you stayed there.

Room Tip: I would have loved a room on the first floor that walks right out onto the beach. There are also gre...

I ride my motorcycle to the Gulf Coast several times a year. This is a nice motel to stay at. The only negative thing is it has limited parking and no elevators. Everything else was great during my stay.

Room Tip: Ocean front rooms do not have a private balcony, it is the walk way for all the units on that level...

I had not been to Panama City Beach in 25 years, so I booked a room at the Chateau based off a friend's recommendation. Spring Break for our school system was very late this year, and we just missed the normal Spring Break crowds that PCB normally gets (thank goodness). This hotel provided the perfect, private getaway that my family desired. Our Cabana room was great - just step out the door and you are at the Gulf! We were so close to the Gulf that we could hear the sound of the waves at night - very relaxing!! Our room was clean and was made up well each day. The hotel property looked well maintained with a clean pool, pool chairs, and pool deck. They were getting ready to open a poolside bar, and I wish we had been able to enjoy that luxury on our trip. The only drawback came when we started to leave. The Cabana rooms are on the lowest level of the hotel, and you have to travel down two flights of stairs which are gated. The gates are locked from 10 or 11 PM to 8 or 9 AM the next day. As my husband and I were pulling our luggage up the steps a little after 9 AM on the day of our departure, we discovered that the gates were locked, and there was no other way to get out of the hotel (no elevator access). That experience was a little aggravating, especially since it was raining, and our luggage was getting soaked (as were we).

Room Tip: The Cabana rooms are great, just beware the locked gates!
