“Not worth the money!!!!”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

The rooms had cockroaches everywhere and a man charged with sexual predatory. Not a good experience at all. Not recommended for families. The area was good but staff was unfriendly and crude. They tried to overcharge us and not give a deposit back on items the maid took. Its a great place to get hammered and smoke. Overall it was a rough experience.

I can't say enough about this place! This was our 2nd year going. We arrived on the 3rd and stayed til 15th. Almost 2 weeks! We asked for the same room (#417) that we stayed in last year because it's the best view in the house if you ask me. Room was clean as always, the staff was excellent. The only issue we had was our unit started acting funny so I called down to the lobby and within 45 secs someone was there to fix it. He said if it did it again he'd be there til 2....Well our luck it started acting up at 1:00am (we were still awake so no we weren't asleep) so i called and again with in 2 mins the same guy was back with a NEW unit...We were good to go the rest of the trip. The other complaint I had was that when we got there 5 days later a HUGE group of seniors on a senior trip showed up from Ohio (same thing happen last year as well) these kids were drinking, being unruly and all sorts of stuff. However, security was REAL QUICK to shut it down and in fact some where even kicked out! Another new addition to this motel is the Treble Hook tiki bar this was the first year for it and let me tell you the food is amazing and the amount of food you get for the price beats going to any fast food place! We ate there almost everyday for lunch and some for dinner. My favorite meal was the buffalo wings....O.M.G. they were so good! We had the nachos, with chili, cheese and bacon. We tried there chicken strips, there hamburger (which was HUGE) and there daiquiri are good too. This will be our place to stay for a long time to come! Can't wait til next year! Thanks again Chateau for making this family trip amazing! But hey a side note pleaseeeeee get new beds my back and hips hurt from sleeping. I felt like i was sleeping on a board.

This hotel was horrible. My husband, me and my 8 yr old visited this week and before we could get to our room to unpack, we were greeted by a teenager peeing on the ground in between a couple of cars outside our room. This along with her maybe 6 or more friends drunk outside their room next to ours. NONE of them were of legal age. And when I say none, I'm talking about the over 200 kids staying there for high school graduation. 200 I'm sure is on the low side. And high school grads aren't normally 21. They were hanging out at the bar on the site getting served whatever they wanted, screaming from the balcony to the beach, knocking on our door, calling our phone in the room. It was insanity. They weren't tipsy, they were trashed, stumbling etc.. I'm no prude and wouldn't care about most of any of it except for the fact we had our child with us.

We moved to another room and nothing changed. We couldn't sleep the second night due to the phone call and knock at our door by drunk teens I'm guessing. Oh and the lovely sound of something, maybe a chain, dragging across the ceiling at 3am. We had our room at 67 degrees so that the air would run all night and block some of the outside noise. I froze and still couldn't sleep. Of course our 8 year old slept through this and was ready to go at 7 am daily so that made for terribly tired parents.

As you'd expect, we woke up and went to the desk and were apologized to and let out of the rest of our stay. We ended up at the Days Inn two doors down and had a great time! As my husband put it, the Chateau is lawless full of drunk teens who the hotel doesn't bother to card or care who they bother. It was horrible. If you are a teen, head on down!! Nobody cards you and will serve you till you throw up (one of the teens offered us that statement while we were trying to let our son swim in the pool. Yeah.. it sucked!

I give it one star ONLY because it was near the beach. Oh and your feet stick to the carpet. Nice, huh?

A great place to stay. The rooms were nice and clean. Housekeeping was very friendly and done a great job. The staff at the front desk was very helpful and friendly (especially Leslie). We had a great time and look forward to coming back in September.

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.
