Aside from the weather, this Motel is in desperate need of updating. The rooms are a disgusting. Ceilings are stained and falling down, bathrooms are just plain sickening, carpeting is old and stained and parts actually smell like vomit. The lighting is a joke and barely working and only one outlet and they have a giant multi-outlet thing in it... More

We were in town to go to some attractions, wonderworks, pier park grand theatre, angelo's steak house. This hotel is perfect if you don't like the high rise hotels, is still ocean front with every room facing the pool deck, the ocean and the tiki bar and grill from a balcony. Easy check in, easy access to room and all... More

We appreciate you taking the time to tell us about your stay at our motel. We do have a great location right in the middle of Panama City Beach with easy access to shopping and many attractions. The Chateau is a classic motel with beautiful views from every room. The staff hopes you will come back to the beach soon. More

You cannot beat the location of this gulf-front motel but our room was definitely dated looking more like something from the 70's. However, it was clean and the beds were comfortable. The front desk staff was efficient and friendly and the overall atmosphere is very relaxing.

We visit PCB 2 to 3 times a year, and we always stay at the chateau. We travel with our fur baby, and this is one of the only gulf front hotels that allows pets. It's not a 4 star resort, but it's clean and steps away from the beach. We first chose the chateau because of its rates, but... More

The Motel was good. The view of the ocean was so relaxing. The hotel sits right by the ocean and on the strip. You got so many things in walking distance. The staff were very helpful. They have a bar and grill right next to the pool that played music all day. Will stay there again.

This motel is just old, classic Florida with the room entry is right off a breezeway, no lobby or hallways to walk through. Wonderful pool and just steps to beach (no long walk from pool to beach) Expect to have sand in your room. I kept a separate pair of flip flops to wear in the room at all times.... More
