Unlike many of the reviewers, I was not impressed with this hotel at all. I stayed at this hotel about two years ago when it was going through remodeling. Due to the remodeling in progress, I excused a lot of things that I did not like about my room and had expectations for a better experience this time. The lobby... More

I had been on a month-long trip visiting friends and family in several states and just wanted to get home. The last thing I wanted to do was rent another room, but I needed to be near the airport for an early morning flight. Decided to stay here because of my experience there years ago and the price. I was... More

The Chateau is reminds me of a big city downtown hotel. You might think it was built in the 19th century and remodeled in the 21st. Big lobby area, friendly profession staff, a Tony Roma's as the hotel restaurant. The place oozes class like you would find at a much more expensive hotel. Still they miss some easy fixes. The...

If you're interested in character, a great staff and a pleasant atmosphere, this is your place. There is NOTHING sterile about this environment. It is clean, comfortable and full of life. The walls and carpets and bedding have patterns and colors. I only include that for people who are used to staying at certain properties where everything is "clean modern... More

I was a little skeptical about the Chateau. I've read horror stories on various websites about this place. So I was nervous. Boy was I wrong. This is probably one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. Loved it here. The staff was super friendly and very helpful. The grounds were well kept and really neat. The hotel is... More

We are very happy that you had a nice stay at the Chateau, and greatly appreciate the positive review/comments. Those motion sensor lights are a little tricky. We recently installed all new LED lighting system all throughout the hotel, and were thinking green by installing a motion sensor light switch also. We have had requests from some guests to deactivate... More

What a beautiful hotel. The grounds and the inside were kept immaculate. Thank you to Derrick and the group for their generosity in allowing me to leave a day early and cancel my stay due to an emergency. Highly recommended hotel for anyone.

This property is wonderful. Not your typical characterless hotel. The decorations were appropriate and interesting to maintain the old world European Chateau ambiance. The rooms were very clean and the pool area was very well taken care of and nicely laid out. The work out area is also very easily accessible. Very quiet in the hallways no disturbance at all....

This was the Jumer's Hotel/Lodge. it is much lighter in color now on the inside, the hallways could stand a little freshening up, smells a little old. The King room that we had was a nice size. Frig & microwave worked well. The King bed was comfortable but when my hubby rolled over you could feel it jiggle a little.... More
