The last time my family and I stayed at the Chateau was 2012. It was a great experience and yet again they made our stay amazing and enjoyable. Staff/service were very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. Room was very pleasing. Bed sheets were clean and the bed was very comfortable. Carpet was very clean and for... More

I just stayed here over the weekend with my boyfriend for a short weekend trip. I was nervous after reading the reviews but I was pleasantly surprised. Our room was clean, the staff was friendly and accommodating, and I thought the hotel grounds, pool, etc. were really well kept. It's not a 5 star resort and I wasn't expecting that.... More

Older motel. 4 floors, no elevator. My room was on the 1st floor. Drive in on 3rd. Had to drag bags up and down two floors. It was right on the beach. Great view. Room was clean. No racks or hooks to hang towels or swimsuits. Had to pay for ice. Mini fridge not cold. Week cost $1466. Could have... More

The reservationist did not listen I said I wanted to be on the beach and watch the sunset from my room and I wanted a quiet room. I was first given a room in front of the pool. I could not even see the water from my room. So they did give me another room it was overlooking a very... More

Affordable, clean, excellent views to the pool and beach. Loved the music and happy hour along with family environment. Just wish there were handicap ramps to the pool/beach. There are two staircases to get to the beach and with physical limitations it became challenging to get there. Although once in the beach it's a short walk to the shore. Overall... More

Im always a bit nervous about choosing a hotel after reading reviews but people tend to exgrarate things because this was an awesome place to stay, friendly staff, room was clean, and it's right on the beach. We had an awesome trip for a great price and we will definitely be returning here!!

When I book this hotel I realized it was an older hotel and probably needed some updating, but it looked clean and we thought we would be ok with that. I was wrong!! We are currently staying in room 131. It's absolutely a beautiful view, but the room is extremely dirty and it has roaches. I have had to ask... More

The employees at this Hotel went above and beyond to make our vacation great. There was nothing we asked of them that they wouldn't do. They catered to our every need. Every staff member was so friendly and we will definitely stay there again.

I've stayed here since the 70's, one of the last "real" motels on the beach. I love this place because it's not a high rise (taking you 15 min elevator time loaded down to get to the beach!!) it's a perfect size , they work very hard to keep it clean & the gardener does a great job!! They even... More

I love this place. All the people that work there are so nice and friendly. I stayed a couple of days with my boyfriend and we were just blown away by the view. The prices are good, the beer is cold and the people are nice.
