The rooms were clean. The staff was great and friendly. The view was AMAZING! I was able to open the door and watch the people in the pool or at the beach! It was great. Best for vacations. The hotel is clean, in a good location and has great access to the beach. Food are great.

It was our 5th year anniversary and we decided at the last minute to visit Panama City Beach which is 5 hours away from us. We were only staying for 2 nights and didn't want to pay a ton of money for just a quick getaway. I googled inexpensive oceanfront hotels in the area and found this one. I took... More

I was a little skeptical about this hotel because of some of the reviews I read prior to booking. The reason we chose this particular one was because it was fairly inexpensive and what we consider a central location along the beach and strip and we were only staying for 2 nights. We actually enjoyed our stay. We walked right... More

We had a wonderful experience at our recent visit to The Chateau Motel at Panama City Beach Fl. The staff were all terrific, the service wonderful, and the accommodations are the best for the price on the beach.... Had a ball and thanks to all!!

This stay could have been so good since we had really great housekeeping and a wonderful view of the Gulf. Our stay was destroyed on the first night by a loud argument out in front of all the rooms facing into the swimming pool . Now these were retirees, not kids, who were part of a large reunion. I suppose... More

We had a pet friendly room with a walk-out to the terrace and ocean view. The service was friendly, the grounds were clean and well-kept for an old beach motel. None of the glitz and glam, but plenty of the old Florida charm. We will for sure come back...if we can stomach the 12+ hour drive again from Ohio.

Booked this hotel for a last minute trip. Knew it was an old motel but read a bunch of great reviews. We stayed in #433. Both queen beds were terrible. Matresses were about 5'' thick and very old. I've never seen a queen matress that thin. One bed was on a box with no springs so it was like sleeping... More
