My family has been going to Panama City Beach for 50+ years. From my grandparents down to us grand kids, we've stayed in several of the hotels on the strip. This is by far the best one I've found. My favorite by far was the old Beachcomber but hurricane Andrew blew it away so when it came to finding a...

Older hotel. Clean rooms. Pool spotless. great location. Room misrepresented when booked, we anticipated a larger room with pullout- had a roll-a-way (old & uncomfortable) instead. Would try them again because of the location.

I work as a housekeeping manager in a hotel. So I know how hard housekeeping can be. When I asked the Housekeeper to change my sheets she replied NO! I will do it tomorrow. Tomorrow was my checkout date. Then i asked for an extra blanket and she gave me one with 3 large holes in it I know this...

Great, clean place to stay. Very friendly staff. Comfortable beds. We had rented the cabana, which was right on the beach, if we was any closer we would have had to pitch a tent. plenty of shops, restaurants and plenty of activites to do within walking distance. Would stay here again if ever back in the area.

I would like to share with you our most recent trip to Panama City Beach, Florida. We stayed at the wonderful Chateau Motel on Front Beach Road. This motel has been here since the early 1960, and the kindness and warmth and the good nature of the 1960 is still here. It is rare you find an older motel with...

We stayed in 416 for 4 days. We were on the top floor, king bed overlooking the pool. We had a microwave and a fridge. Pros: you are right on the beach, the room was very clean, we were brought fresh towels every day and the price was right for a no frills experience. Bed and lots of pillows were...

If your main desire is being right on a great stretch of beach and don't need any frills, then this is the place for you. We booked a "Cabana" room which are low and closest to the beach, and I recommend them. The negative is it's two flights down from the office/parking lot, so it's a pain coming and going...

I read all the other reviews and was prepared for a clean, old motel on the beach. Well, the good thing is location...right on beach...and the staff was friendly. However, it is a motel for guests that are pretty low class. Lots of rough looking types hanging around. The rooms are pretty old and the bedspreads need to be changed...

Enjoyed our stay. The Chateau is an older property. The staff was very good and the location was great. We had a great time and everything was clean. I don't think you will find a better deal in this area. We stayed a week and had zero complaints.

We absolutely loved it there! The only complaints we have are having to climb the stairs to the pool and then again to the parking area and back down again.(I'm not it shape) But after a few days of doing it it wasn't as bad. The other complaint is that we were changing rooms on our second night and were...
