This is a small hotel - only 18 or 20 rooms. It is on a quiet side street in La Quinta, about a mile from the resort. All of the rooms have balconies or patios facing Lake La Quinta, a small lake in the Lake La Quinta subdivision. It has a restaurant that serves breakfast (included) and is open for... More

We stayed two nights at the recently renovated Chateau at Lake La Quinta during the tennis tournament. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. There are still a few kinks to be worked out: our shower door was not installed properly and I got stuck in the shower. Fortunately my husband was able to open the door and I... More

We stayed at the Chateau last year in late February and loved it. I'm from the northeast and often find myself feeling out of place in the Disney-esque stucco-and-fake-landscaping world of southern California. But we wanted to see old friends in San Diego and also wanted a few days of reliable sunshine.The Chateau was perfect. Even though it sits on... More

We have stayed at the Chateau on a number of occasions when visiting La Quinta over Christmas. However regrettably this was not possible this time because of the extension to the building and upgrading of the rooms and grounds. We contacted Chris who, as ever was more than willing to give us a tour. The new extension was in an... More

Our stay at The Chateau was amazing. Not only was the room right by the lake and the view was beautiful, but we were able to sleep in, no noise at all, was very well maintained and everything in the room was very clean and neat. The complimentary breakfast was delicious, fresh orange juice and a veggie omelet. All of... More

My husband and I stayed 3 nights. It was very clean and quiet. We went swimming early in the mornings and had the pool to ourselves. The homemade breakfasts were very good--they even got me a diet Coke since I am not a coffee or juice drinker. I loved the quiet room and blackout curtains (we were on the east... More

The Chateau is cute and quaint. Our welcome was not the most pleasant. The woman did not provide much information or instruction on how things worked there and didn't even greet us when we entered.
