My girlfriend and I recently stayed at the Chateau Inn in Panama City. When we checked in we were offered a suite at a decent rate but looking back it was somewhat suspicious. It was a typical two room suite with a kitchenette and a tiny bathroom. Everything was fine until the next morning. We had stayed out pretty late... More

Although the Chateau is an older hotel it was great. We chose a room where we literally were steps from the sand! The staff was great & very accommodating; we were able to check in early! We will definitely stay there again!!!

We've stayed here more times than I can count. If you're just looking for a cheap place to sleep at night, this is perfect! Clean rooms, decent beds, great view & location. Only complaint we've had was our TV didn't work properly this last trip but we rarely watch TV so we didn't even mention it. Nothing special but for... More

We stayed at the chateau. Very old but very clean. All rooms face pool and beach. No Wi - fi and no breakfast but microwave and frig. I liked it because it has dedicated parking and balconies. THERE IS NO ELEVATOR but the way it is built we only went up 1 flight from parking lot. Very inexpensive. Rooms pool... More

The view is amazing and especially for the price you can't really ask for more the rooms are kind of out dated to be a double bed room but still a good place to stay and the front desk was awesome Ashley was very helpful

Have stayed here several times over the past years. Found it easier to buy a house than complete all the check-in paperwork.....!!!! The place was much cleaner than ever before. Skip the new bar....!!! Terrible nachos. Warm beer.

Great rooms and location. Very affordable. Before choosing to stay here in May, I read some bad reviews. I don't see why anyone gave a bad one. The staff is friendly and helpful. Can't wait to stay again in September!!

My folks used to bring me here in the 1970's for family vacations. Haven't been back since but some of the best memories of my youth were here at this motel. My wife got us a beach front room...four steps and we were on the sand. Highly recommended. The room was average and in average condition...housekeeping kept unplugging the table... More
