Smelly room. I wish I could give it a zero. Roaches in an expensive place like this, really? We were thoroughly grossed out. It was very uncomfortable. At first, they would not work with us, but after much ado, we were offered another room. Thankfully, it wasn't infested too. Most places try to work with customers, but here they were... More

My daughters & I went to PCB for a 5 day trip. The Chateau was clean, great view & pet friendly. We arrived early & told we would be called when our room was ready - well after the 4 PM check in. Manager was a little snotty that day. Shower is very small - definitely should look into the... More

I'd have to say that we enjoyed our stay. Motel right on the beach with a nice ocean front and pool view. Room was clean and housekeeping went everyday of our stay. It does need a little updating for the price but u can't beat waking up to the nice view. The beds were a bit hard tho. Also there... More

Just back from a 4th of July vacation in PCB. The Chateau was a good motel with a great location. The rooms are clean and a good size. I was surprised to find a fridge in the room as I did not expect it. Great view from the room, loved sitting on the balcony to watch the sun come up.... More

When we booked our room we were told check-in was at 4pm. We arrived early on check-in day and were able to go ahead to our room at 12. The room was nicer than I expected. The beds were nice and clean and looked comfy. We slept pretty good, other than the fact that were used to a king bed... More

Great location. Staff very helpful. Greatly enjoyed the stay. Will be staying again during our visits. Great value for Beach front rooms, nothing fancy but clean, comfortable rooms and courteous staff.

I really enjoyed staying here! It was an old school PCB hotel, no elevators but it was very clean. We stayed in what they called a cabana room right on the beach which was great. The only thing is I needed a clean towel and had walked up to flights of stairs to lobby at 10 pm and they told... More

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... More
