“Our favorite desert getaway!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

My husband and I spent our anniversary here and I have also made two girls trips to Lake La Quinta Inn, and I absolutely love it! The ambiance, service, and breakfast is always above our expectations and I love the privacy it offers opposed to the hustle and bustle of a hotel! I would highly recommend this place, it's the perfect place to come and stay for any occasion!

Room Tip: Every room has a beautiful view of the lake, so you can't go wrong!

Thank you so much for returning to our scenic desert resort, Lauren. One of the things that make us such a desirable vacation destination is our versatility. We can accommodate a fun weekend getaway with the girls as easily as a romantic honeymoon. Our 13 delightful suites each overlook a serene lake and are chockfull of desirable amenities. We are glad you enjoy our European ambience and that our personalized customer service exceeded your expectations. Thank you for sharing your comments. We appreciate your recommendation and hope to see you again soon.

I've worked in a high end hotel chain long enough to realize what customer service is all about. I reserved on line through Lakelaquintainn.com. I took advantage of a mid week promotion that was at a rate that beat the rate of a third party site. From start to finish Lake La Quinta Inn provided exceptional service & atmosphere from the moment i arrived. I was here on business and Chris and staff made me feel welcome and relaxed after a long trip. I enjoyed the peacfulness, the views & the Jacuzzi after a long day of meetings. The Chef, I beleive his name is Omar, did an outstanding job, from vegetable Omelettes to Banana Pancakes. The housekeeping staff, Alisa, was very thourough and friendly. I will recommend Lake La Quinta Inn to couples and business travelers alike. I'll be back to my home away from home.

Great place for a quiet visit with a beautiful view of Lake La Quinta. The staff did all they could to make our visit comfortable. Breakfasts are a treat and change daily. We enjoyed the hot-tub and gas fireplace. Close to great restaurants and amenities. We stayed for 10 days!

Room Tip: The first-floor rooms give you a lovely garden patio to sit on.

Thank you for visiting Lake La Quinta Inn, Susan. We hope you will return soon for another extended vacation. Although we have a reputation as an ideal destination for romantic weekend getaways, as you discovered we can easily accommodate longer stays as well. We are glad you enjoyed our resort and look forward to your next visit.

This looks place looks better in person than online, when we arrived, everyone was so hospitable and even though the front desk was closed.. ( we arrived later in the evening) they left us a nice note leading us to our room.
I would absolutely recommend this bed and breakfast. We loved it and definitely will come again!

Refreshing stay. This is a quaint spot in a convenient location to be able to get to local LaQuinta. It was perfect from a business perspective to be able to come and go and relax at night.

Highlights: Refreshing/trendy decor, cozy fireplace, nice hotel amenities, excellent view of man-made lake with mountain backdrop, morning breakfast (made gluten free), clean and well-maintained. Customer service was great and willing to go the extra mile both during the stay and beyond.

Downside: Doesn't have a great place to work out (although there a some good local hikes), pool is small and if you need something in the middle of the night there is nobody on property. I have no doubt that if you needed something and called the 24 hour line they'd be there, but no late night room service etc.

All in all - would highly recommend to those coming for business or leisure.

Thank you for sharing your comments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Our 13 luxurious suites are ideally suited for the traveling businessperson – and a joy to return to after a long day of meetings. As you mentioned, they are filled with convenient amenities and stylishly furnished. All guest rooms overlook our scenic lake. Providing first-class customer service is our top priority. We are happy we met your expectations. Pool capacity is based on our maximum occupancy, which is 26. We have on average three to four couples using the pool at any given time. Your instincts are correct: we are always on-call for overnight emergencies. Thank you for taking time to post your remarks. We appreciate your recommendation and look forward to seeing you again.

Located near Palm Springs, this boutique inn/bed and breakfast was the perfect spot to stay while visiting friends in the area. Breakfast on the patio overlooking the small lake was terrific. Our room was spacious and well appointed with a cozy gas fireplace. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Originally intending to stay only one night, we were so pleased that we stayed a second night. We would return in a heartbeat.

Thank you for visiting Lake La Quinta Inn, Duncan. We are happy you decided to stay an extra night with us. One day just isn’t enough to fully enjoy everything our boutique hotel and spa has to offer. We provide a relaxing sanctuary in the California desert where you can get away from it all. Our beautiful resort is modeled on a European chateau, with rolling lawns, lush gardens and 13 comfortable suites overlooking a peaceful lake. It was our pleasure to make sure your stay was the best it could be. Thank you for sharing your comments. We appreciate your generous remarks and hope you will consider us again.

The two times that we have stayed at Lake La Quinta Inn have been a wonderful experience of bliss and relaxation. We love the casitas overlooking the quiet lake. The view is so soothing and inspiring. We love the simplicity and comfort of the rooms. The balcony in the summer is great and the fireplace in the winter is so cozy. The beds are comfortable and we appreciate all the thoughtful amenities. The pool and the jacuzzi are at the perfect temperature to enjoy. The gourmet breakfast is a nice surprise every day. The casitas do not get internet service, but that is a good thing if you are looking to disconnect from technology for a little while; you can always get the service by the pool or in the lobby. The service is extremely friendly and kind and we have always felt welcomed and well taken care of. Chris and the entire crew have done a great job making us feel at home there. We love our special getaway and look forward to the next opportunity to enjoy another restful vacation at Lake La Quinta Inn and to get to know the interesting surroundings better.
