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

I accidentally spilt a bottle of water on the carpet and tried to soak it up with a towel, the water must have activated whatever nastiness was lurking in the carpet because what came out on the towel was orange and smelt like vomit. If you do need something good luck, I locked myself out of my room at night... More

I tried to stay at the Chateau Royale Inn but no one was at the desk to check me in. The smell in the lobby was disgusting so I am glad that I never even got to a room. Even though they say the hotel is smoke free it clearly was not. When trying to get my money back the... More

Absolutely DISGUSTING!! Arrived expecting 3 rooms next to each other. Owner gave away one and refused to admit fault. He reluctantly gave us the suite at the same cost. Once in the rooms we discovered how disgusting these rooms were. 2 rooms reeked of smoke and urine. The windows were open to TRY to air it out. It didn't work.... More
