The stay at the Chateau was pretty good. We had a beachfront kitchen room on the 4th floor. The room had carpet which is good for not having the feel of sand on the floor constantly and slipping after applying sunscreen. The room was adequate for the two of us. My only complaint is that the remote had a bandaid... More

Needed a cheap place to crash from 9pm to 9 am with my 13 y.o. daughter on a road trip. $69 and change for an ocean view (off season). The room smelled-was damp and kinda gross (I was VERY GLAD we had our own pillows. And don't go barefoot on that musty carpet!) but honestly it was about what I... More

Room was somewhat clean but not the floors. After walking around with no shoes for a short period of time the bottom of my feet were black. They need to wash the floors every day. Other than that not expensive.

Thunder Beach bike week was my third visit here and I'll never stay anywhere else in Panama City. I had a single once, a kitchenette once and a suite once. Great views from every unit. You can find the same views in a lot of places but the STAFF is what makes the difference here. They are always visible maintaining... More

2nd time we've stayed here. This place has character! 50's motel that is does not disappoint. Beautiful views and friendly staff. Edward was particularly busy along with all the staff constantly keeping the grounds and pool deck clean! Maid service was a little inconsistent replenishing supplies, but room was very clean.

Service desk attendant was very friendly. I checked in at 12:30 am. Super tired from a long drive. Got to the room, the room looked freshly renovated, however, the beds were old and need to be replaced as well as the carpet. The carpet had a huge stain on it, from what I'm not sure. The bathroom was clean and... More

Amazing accommodations after many years of staying at the Chateau. As always the rooms are clean and well maintained. Love the feel of an older place that treats their guests like family.
