Extremely disappointed & highly p____d! This Hotel does not look anything like pictures! It is dirty & falling apart! Many stairs, no handicap access! It is a struggle to even get your luggage to your room. Hotel also NOT FOLLOWING COVID GUIDELINES! Now back home & in quarantine! Terrible!!

Right on the beach, rooms are nice but not incredibly updated. Staff friendly and helpful. Great bargain for the price

fair view of the gulf--no ice machine--property un kept--requested towels after soiled were given to laundry but none ever came--no view of sunset or sunrise due to placement of room--carpet was filthy--turned bare feet black--tub fixtures corroded--other than that ???????????

It was Great can't say anything bad about it. Would go again

The staff was very friendly, room was nice and updated, however, the elevator was questionable, we got stuck in it and my step-daughter was close to a panic attack. Luckily, it tried to open so there was a gap and my husband was able to get his fingers through and push it open.

No working ice machine on property. Was on second floor had regular entrance blocked off had to go to far end of building to go up stairs. Parking lot a mess only people I saw looked like workers staying there because it is cheap. I had orbitz points so it didn’t cost me much or I would have asked for money back. This property should not be on Orbitz.

Beautiful ocean view. Great rate! The hotel was decently maintained for an old property.

This is an older hotel and they are in process of doing work to renovate. You can't beat the beach views with balconies that open right out to the beach! Our room had a kitchette that was well stocked as well if you wanted to do your own cooking.

Perfect for the price. Very satisfied with this trip!

Intimate setting great view great staff had a great time

The room service didn’t even come change our towels daily, the internet didn’t work, the “bar and grill” was just a bar and no food, the ceiling in the bathroom needed updated. Some of the workers was nice and some of the other workers seemed like they had no interest in our concerns.

This place is old and in terrible condition. Not worth the money.

I BOOKED THROUGH ORBITZ FOR A TRIP AT THE CHATEAU IN PCB 7/7 TO 7/9. I HAVE NEVER STAYED IN SUCH A HORRIBLE PLACE. WE CHECKED IN AT 10AM AND TOLD OUR ROOM WOULD BE READY AT 4PM. WHEN WE ARRIVED AT 4PM TO GET INTO OUR ROOM THE OFFICE TOLD US HOUSEKEEPING WOULDN'T BE DONE FOR A FEW HOURS. MY HUSBAND GOT A LITTLE PUSHY FOR THE ROOM AND ARGUED AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN THEY HAD AVAILABLE ROOMS. THEY GAVE US THE KEY TO GET IN OUR ROOM. ROOM 408. IT WAS DIRTY. SAND ALL OVER THE PLACE. CALLED THE FRONT DESK. THEY SAID HOUSEKEEPING WAS BUSY. THEY NEVER CAME. I CLEANED IT MYSELF. NEXT DAY WE CALLED AGAIN (AT 9AM) TO MAKE SURE HOUSEKEEPING WOULD COME. THEY ASSURED ME THEY WOULD. ARRIVED BACK AT 9PM.... THEY STILL NEVER CAME. THEN ON THAT NIGHT OF 7/8/19 OUR CAR WAS BROKEN INTO. RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE ROOMS. TRIED TO CALL THE OFFICE 7 TIMES WHILE I WAS FILING A POLICE REPORT. THEY NEVER ANSWERED. SO I ENDED UP WALKING TO THE OFFICE. THE BLACK LADY WITH A JAMAICAN ACCENT WAS THERE. I SAID" HEY IM JUST LEYTING YOU KNOW MY CAR WAS BROKEN INTO LAST NIGHT." SHE RESPONDED IMMEDIATELY "YEAH THE CAMERA DONT SEE OVER THERE I CANT DO ANYTHING". FOR ONE THAT WAS EXTREMELY RUDE1 DURING A STRESSFUL TIME. I WASNT ASKING HER FOR ANYTHING. 2 SHE DIDNT EVEN KNOW WHERE MY CAR WAD OR WHAT HAPPENED BC SHE NEVER ANSWERED THE PHONE. OH AND A TRUCK WAS ALSO STOLEN BY ANOTHER GUEST THIS NIGHT TOO. AND APPARENTLY THEY HAVE SECURITY THERE?PROBABLY SLEEPING LIKE THE REST OF THE stadd

No WiFi in the room. The price when I booked online is less than the price when I checked in at the hotel, do not know why.

It was nice clean staff where friendly we enjoyed our stay

Internet was only at the door, no way I could do work. No place to hang wet towels in the bathroom or at sink for hand towels. This property needs a real make over and is Way over priced. The staff was wonderful in moving me to a sister property, which was the same price and 100% better, including free breakfast.

Hello, we do not have an elevator at Chateau, so your reservation must have been for one of our sister properties. Please let us know which one, so that we can share your experience with their maintenance staff.
