Verified Reviews of Chateau by The Sea

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Don’t stay here."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
This was the worst experience I have ever had at a hotel! I booked at three pm and showed paid through my bank and my text and emails. Yet when we got there they told me I had to pay again because it didn't show paid! The staff was very very very RUDE! They wouldn't accept my emails or text or online bank info that showed I already paid! Needless to say we left and had to find another place to stay as I was not giving them more money! I am in process of disputing the fraudulent charges with my bank and recouping my money since we did not stay! Be Leary folks. This is a run down shady looking place with rude staff!

"Awful"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Worst vacation experience I have ever had. Wrong room, key didn't work so I was asked if I could just prop the door open so I could go in and out without a key. Room was changed two more times no cable in the rooms. Lots of people in the lobby begging for towels and toilet paper.

"Worst Nightmare"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I had to book a different hotel due to the horrible stay. They gave me a smoking room. On top of that, there were previous guests underwear and hair on the bed. The sheets were dirty. Worst experience ever. I rather gave up the reservation than stay there another night!

"Didn’t let us stay there."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
We had a room, they charged me plus tax for it then they moved us to Beach Tower and charged tax again for that hotel. I was very disappointed and may never go there again and may tell others not to go as well. Just not right they shouldn't charge tax again.

"Terrible"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I made my reversion on line, was told I had paid everything no more charges due, WRONG! I got to hotel to check in at 5:50 p.m. I waited 28 minutes before the clerk finally got yo me, she was rude very rude. Then she wanted my credit card on file in case I tore up the room, which I wasn't told I had to do when I booked the room. Then she said I had to $ 11.91 handling cost which I wasn't told about. She ran my card and said he wasn't good, I called my bank and it was good. She ran again. Other people came in and she started waiting on them. One man had booked a room before me he came back in and refused to stay, he told lady (Nina) she could keep Money but he wouldn't pay for any damages if they booked the room. Finally at 6:10 she finished with me ! By this time I am bout to blow. Then I get to the room, it's only half way cleaned, open refrigerator door and it's frozen over, not cooling! I made pictures with my phone. I didn't go back to tell the front desk, she still had people lined up. My experience was awful, I will never go back and I will encourage others not to also, They is a sign in office asking to share your experience on Facebook and Twitter! I will and it wine good. Never again will I stay here.

"Mixed Feelings"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
My wife loved wooden lounge chairs with nice cushions by the pool.Mattresses not great, some of the employees were nice.I don't like the no cancellation policy. Do not use reservations.com and I didn't like having to pay a resort fee of 60.00 dollars that I knew nothing about until I was checking in and when I asked what I got for it the lady said in a confused manner [nothing]then I laughed because I told them all to faces I've never been ripped off this good before.I think everyone should think long and hard before renting any rooms from by the sea resorts.Plus WiFi would not work in the room.

"Poor"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Cleaning crew constantly in the way passing through. The bar outside lady made her own hours and found different excuses to close! Out of four days I only got to get drinks and food one day! Lady ran out of ice so couldn't keep bar and grill open lady said it was gonna rain so she couldn't serve food and drinks anymore. There's roaches everywhere! Overall it wasn't the best place to stay!
