I spent time reading reviews after "winning" this hotel on Priceline last summer for our 2 night stay 3/28-3/30/14 and wrote to Priceline immediately that this didn't sound like a 3* property like I usually get from them. I got the normal automated response that I had accepted the terms when bidding, blah blah blah. Expectations were then set very... More

The Chateau Dupre is to be avoided at all costs. The hotel is in abdominal condition and is clearly getting worse as time goes on. It's not just the condition that it is in, but you can see that the management is very, very, very poor in even the minimal improvements that they are making. For example, we had a... More

We stayed here when prices were inglated and I paid $285 for the room. I would give it zero stars for the price we paid. If we would have paid $80, the typical nights pay, I would give it 2 stars. Its a very old hotel, the elevator doesn't work and they have the doors propped open. If you are... More

We stayed here the weekend of March 29. Elevator was broken. Our room was on the third floor. The hall doors were being propped open by garbage cans. Our first room was accessible by a key that looked like it could unlock your front door. The room was dark, air conditioner didn't work, bathroom door didn't close all the way.... More

I knew when we reserved this hotel exactly what we were getting, and the condition of the hotel came as no surprise but you absolutely cannot beat the location for the price. I'm sure the hotel owners know this and that's why there's not a lot of investment in the hotel. The place is old, the amenities are minimal, the... More

Booked the room for an over night stay before a cruise... BADDD move! In one word, DON'T!! Lobby smelled, front desk staff not interested, friendly or helpful. Elevator scary. We both dreaded unlocking room door. Drapes hanging off rod, window broken..no really, half the glass gone. Floor lamp next to bed, shadeless, just the bare bulb. Carpet from the '50's... More

I didn't understand why this place was so bad. I usually take reviews with a grain of salt but this place was just awful. I was here on business and didn't have time to look for a new place to stay. To start, the lobby was pretty run down and dirty. The elevator was pretty rickety and had a phone... More

We stopped by to check in before a wedding, and asked where to park. We were given a map and told where several parking lots were and that they were around $50 per day to park there. We come back a few hours later and check in (after we park about 8 blocks away and walk with our luggage to... More
