The stairwell smelled like urine and fish. The kitchen stove area was dirty, both restrooms were hot and grimmy.The front of the dresser drawers were falling... More

We wanted an affordable beachfront motel. The location was good; the beach was accessible and pretty and the pool was fine. The motel rooms on the other hand left a lot to be desired. We faced the pool on the 4th fl and altho that was OK, the room and the bathroom never felt particularly clean and the in-room safe... More

The Chateau is a place to come, again and again and again! Year after year I stay at the Chateau and I love it! Family owned, friendly staff who remembers their patrons ALWAYS! It's like a home away from home.... Recommend that if you want to stay at a motel where every room has a gulf view, entertainment, kid and... More

So this is an older hotel & classic PCB! The ocean front balcony rooms in my opinion are the best. We only stayed one night due to a change in our plans & our other hotel was booked. We came here after a horrible experience at THe Boardwalk so we were happy to find a nice clean room, clean pool....they... More

The Hotel is quaint for 50 year style, and it shows the room are small, air conditioning works but load, decks are unusable because the air conditioning blows hot air on the deck you sit on. Staff are nice but treat you like your a college student on Spring Break and your going to damage their already horrible furnishings and... More

Have stayed here many times through the years, and this time was the worse. Housekeeping, cleanliness, maintenance issues have taken its toll, as well as just a general lack of TLC from owners and/or management. The motel is 50 years old, so its design is very unique from newer places, and no doubt presents some challenges, however there is never... More

Room was very run down and walked into the bathroom and see roaches, totally grossed us out. I should have looked at other reviews before I took the room to see other people complaining about...

We arrived at the Chateau around 11:00 a.m. and they told us to come back at 1:00 for pre-registration. We went back at 1:00 and registered but our room still wasn't ready. They told us we could use the pool or head to the beach and they would call once our room was ready. We went to play mini golf... More

Beach front & pet friendly is why we chose this hotel. Several good restaurants, mini golf, go carts, and shoos all in short walking distance. I loved the hammocks on the tanning deck.
