I Chose the Chateau because it got great reviews on TripAdvisor. I have no idea why there are so many great reviews for this dump. My family and I stayed in a room on the first floor beach front with 2 Queen beds. Yes the beach front rooms are on the beach but are very inconvenient to get to. The...

The room was small, outdated everything. On lower level didn't like that. A LOT of walking to get to my car carrying luggage. SO that is not convenient at all. Pool is way too small for so many rooms. Too many young people around drinking at pool playing beer games getting too wild while families could not enjoy their time....

Got a deal for $ 99/nite. Checked in at 3 am with no problems, wished the front desk had been a bit more friendly and accomodating about a poolside unit but hey I was paying for a $ 99 room so beggars can't be choosers. The room was adequate, bed comfortable, a bit on the hard side but still very...

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.

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...
