My husband and I were in 1 room and my daughter and my 2 grandchildren were in a room of their own. We chose the Cabana, which was beach level. The STAFF were very helpful and they were always smiling. HOUSEKEEPING was great. The ROOMS were clean, quiet, large and at a great price. The beds and pillows were comfortable.... More

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.

My husband and I recently stayed here on a family vacation and we were very impressed with the place.
