With the exception of 2018, we have been staying at the Chateau at least once a year for the past five years. While we enjoyed our trip and the proximity to the beach, the hotel has gone downhill. Both days I had to request housekeeping before they finally showed up after 5:00. The pool was closed all day on Friday. My computer was "hacked" during our stay which was amazing given the fact that the wifi was spotty at best. When I tried to call the facility to warn them about the hack, I did not get an answer. I hope these circumstances were just a "fluke." It is a shame to see a property with so much potential go downhill.

The room was supposed to have two queen beds but only had one. There was no soap or shampoo in the room. The view was ok of the beach but obstructed by scaffolding. The roof was still being repaired from the hurricane.

IF you don't mind a bunch of THUGS hanging out Then this place is fine. We've stayed here twice and had the same experience. Thought the first time was a fluke, but nope it wasn't!! You call the office and ask them to calm down the parking lot situation but they didn't do ANYTHING! you can't walk in the parking lot to go anywhere after a certain time. All the boom boom music and straight up thugs made it impossible and extremely uneasy feeling! Good luck if you stay here, i would highly recommend 'carrying' while you're here!

The only good thing about this hotel was location. It was right on the beach and we had a great view from our balcony. Everything else was awful. Check in took over an hour and half, the place was dirty, the tub was peeling, the carpet was sticky and parking was awful. The water in the shower would randomly change from scalding hot to freezing cold. We didn’t receive any housekeeping services 2 of the 4 full days we were there. On the two days housekeeping did show up, they only pulled the covers over the bed and removed our towels. They did not actually make the bed or leave us clean towels or a new bath mat. They also did not sweep, vacuum, or wipe down the sink, counters, toilet or shower. They also did not leave any extra toilet paper and the hand soap dispenser was empty the entire time we were there. We had to go to Target and buy our own soap and Kleenex since tissues weren’t provided either. The TV didn’t work and one of the beds was broken. There is also a $10 per day “resort fee” which I was aware of prior to our stay. I was not aware, however, that the “resort fee” would be taxed at 30% resulting in a total of $130 extra beyond our actual room rates for our 5 night stay in 2 rooms. I’m still not entirely sure what amenities the “resort fee” covered. You have to pay an extra daily fee for beach chairs and umbrellas and there are no other amenities to speak of. I would highly recommend staying elsewhere.
