I loved this place. But it clearly is not a not a luxury hotel or anything like it. Its best days are over and everything is worn out. The location is still excellent and we had a great day there. Staff was very friendly and everything is close by (by American standards), very convenient.

I am glad that you love our place and you had a great stay. The building is older, however we continue with renovations every off season to increase the quality of our facility. I hope that you will stay with us again. More

We just spent 4 nights at the Chateau over Thanksgiving and loved it!! We traveled with our small dog so we needed a pet friendly place and that's why we booked a room at the Chateau.

We decided to overnight at Panama City Beach on our way to New Orleans a little uncertain as to what to expect. Given the great rates at The Chateau we decided to take to best room options available.

I selected this Motel, because I was looking for a place right on the Beach and for a single night I thought the rate is ok. Deluxe Beachview @ $74.- + Tx.
