“A good leader will have many followers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

It seems that every detail of our stay was handled in a professional yet humble manor... From your grounds to personal, you have attained a good leader, who must be appreciated by his staff and his officers...

The resort is a large sprawling campus making you feel like you were back at college. Back in the 40's and 50's this was probably a nice place. Even in the 60's and 70's it was probably good, but the rooms and facilities look and feel like nothing has been done to them in the last 40 years. Rooms, carpets and buildings just looked dirty and everything did not work. I am thankful it was a business meeting, had I spent my money on this place I would have checked out after the first night. Not what I would expect from a high end, "exclusive" resort.

Despite the below par facilities, I will give high marks to the staff and service. Housekeeping made sure to not be seen and the grounds crew did a great job with what they had to work with. Very nice and attentive valet service and the registration and bell team were great.

The onsite restaurants were great everything they served was great.

Dear Harve S,

It sounds like you took full advantage of everything La Quinta Resort and the local area have to offer. Some folks prefer to stay on-site the whole time they're here, but for those who want to venture forth, our concierges are always ready to recommend shops, restaurants and adventures for any interest. Thank you for staying with us, and we hope to see you back sometime again.

All the best,

Just spent four days at La Quinta Resort & Club and it was terrific. Sunny and warm weather, gorgeous and well-maintained property, beautiful desert setting, great pools and tennis, and good food. I highly recommend it.

Grounds are beautiful yet the Hotel is to spread out not a "team building" opportunity Food Service to the rooms during day for meetings was not available and when only water was ordered it arrived as we were ending our day They are geared to leisure travel, good tennis courts and workout facility

Dear Dennis C,

The topic of business travel doesn't often elicit words like "enjoyable" or "superb," so it's great to know that your business stay at La Quinta Resort exceeded your expectations. No matter what reason brings you to the resort, we want you to feel relaxed and well taken care of while you're here. I'm very glad that was true of your stay.

We are so happy we chose La Quinta for our getaway. I work for a major airline so my life is spent in big chain hotels ,that while luxurious lack the charm of La Quinta. La Quinta offered both. For me the resorts grounds and flowers and fountains were spectacular all manicured against a backdrop of mountains. No building is over 2 stories.The staff was always smiling and everyone greeted you in passing with a hello. All the rooms are clustered around a pool and you have a carport, so our car was there for us, if we decided to leave the resort.
We ate at Morgans one night, we enjoyed it, the food excellent,piano bar lively.We also had drinks at the Plaza in the late afternoon and breakfast at 26 which was excellent.
The room itself was amazing. The bed was comfortable, 2 T.V.( which we never used) a fireplace and a balcony. The bathroom was very spacious. Another plus it if we were staying longer, there was ample space in the closet and plenty of drawers in the bathroom and bedroom for 2 weeks of clothes!
I absolutely LOVED this resort. I wish I could be there today... as it is raining in San Diego.
Go, the tiled fountains , flowers, mountains and ambience will all make you smile and realize how lucky we are to enjoy such a beautiful place.

Room Tip: We were upgraded to a upstairs casita. But I did peer into some of the other rooms and all looked ou...
