Once again, the recommendations/descriptions from TripAdvisor were directly on par: this motel was exactly what I expected, with no surprises. I wanted a clean beachfront location, and this delivered perfectly. The staff was friendly and efficient, and i love that my room was poolside! Lots to recommend about this motel. If you want lush and swank, this isn't your place,...

Our main downfall of this location was the housekeeping staff. Two days in a row they left our room door OPEN! Not a good feeling when you've been gone for 8 hours and come back to find the door open...TWICE! The hotel manager did what she could to make up for our concerns/complaints. The location of the hotel was perfect...

I appreciate you taking the time to leave a review. I have addressed your concerns with the appropriate departments to ensure your issues do not get repeated in the future. Guest room doors being left open is unacceptable and I have started a new housekeeping practice to remedy this issue. The ice machines do take quarters and tokens, we do...

The Chateau is the most charming motel. We stayed in a beachfront room with 2 double beds and a kitchen. The view of the Gulf from our balcony was amazing, especially in the morning.
