Stayed just a night but really liked the room and the view. Room had a coffee machine and a couple of bottles of water plus the entire range of channels on the TV (good for sports fans :-). Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room had a great view over the lake and made for a very peaceful stay.

We stayed at the Chateau at Lake la Quinta as part of our road trip. We used it as a quiet stop gap between Las Vegas and San Diego. We were not disappointed. The hotel was beautifully decorated and the views were stunning, particularly as the sun was going down. The hotel paid attention to little details like beautiful Molten...

My wife and I stayed at the Chateau in early June and everything was just about perfect. We had the least expensive room which was beautifully decorated with a side view of the lake. Lunch in the restaurant was wonderful. Being so impressed with the facility, we decided to return a few weeks later. This time, we "upgraded" to a...

Thank you for your review and feedback about your most recent stay. Please accept my sincere apology for the issues that you encountered.

The hotel is beautiful, clean, very quiet and has amazing views of the lake. The customer service is absolutely amazing!!! Our only complaint was the room service for lunch didn't seem to be up to the standards of the hotel, the food was bland. We had breakfast and it was amazing. The pancakes and huevos rancheros were delicious. We had...

Let me begin by confessing that I have a bias. I feel the same way about large hotels as I do about chain restaurants where you are greeted with “Hi, my name is Sally and I’ll be your server.” Both are formula based and lake in sincerity. Sally could care less about me or the corporation she works for. I’m...

We have a golf group that meets up every year in La Quinta. This year somebody found The Chateau at Lake La Quinta and we decided to try it. What a great experience!
