I don't think this place deserves the bad reviews at all. I stayed here and I actually thought it had a bit of retro charm in a cross country trip hotel sort of way. There was some vintage furniture in the lobby and of course a soda machine in the hall. You won't find luxurious toiletries, but the bathroom was... More

Don't waste your time on Chateau Royale unless you want your weekend ruined. My friend booked 2 rooms, 1 for her and one for my friends and me for Country thunder weekend, July 25 and 26 to be specific. These rooms were booked in NOVEMBER 2013. My friend decided she didn't want to spend the money, so she canceled one... More

Dirty, unsafe windows, some with no screens, no internet at all, heavy smell of cigarette smoke. The owner and his son run the place. They were nice enough, but evidently don't have the money to run a hotel.

A planned birthday celebration turned into a modern-day horror movie with a flavor of Dracula and The Shining. My friend booked the hotel room using Expedia which gave this hotel a misleading review with fabricated amenities. When we first arrived to town, my friend and I met some friends at a bowling alley, and they started saying less than flattering... More

Rooms are filthy and smell like smoke. The hotel hasn't been updated in 20 years. Do not believe the pictures, this place is terrible. There's still plastic on the furniture in the lobby, the beds are very uncomfortable, there is no internet access at all and no breakfast is served. They have a coffee pot in the lobby that is...

A bit apprehensive staying here after some of the negative reviews, but no issues. A decent stay at a good price. If you want more than an average place to sleep and shower maybe it's not for you. Low-keyed property close to town.

A friend booked a room for 2 of us at this property. I did not read the reviews ahead of time, so was completely blown away by the condition of this hotel upon arrival. As we approached the motel, I thought that the name made it sound fancy, so was expecting something pretty nice...or at least decent. Wow, were we... More
