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... More

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... More

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! The rooms were very nice and the service was impeccable! We liked it so much that we decided to return next year before we left this year!

What to say about this boutique hotel ? It is truly superb ! Stayed 3 nights here for my wife's birthday and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.

Our group (24 friends) has held an annual 4 day golf outing for the past 25 years. We've been in La Quinta for at least 10 of those years. Typically we have stayed at bigger resorts, but decided to give the Chateau a chance this year and contracted our stay through Patty Donovan, who was fantastic. The Chateau seemed like... More

The rooms are lovely with a fireplace. The view from the balcony is of Lake LaQuinta which is small but very peaceful. At night, pontoons boats sail slowly by and the breeze is perfect. We were the only couple in the pool and the staff was pleasant and helpful. Hope to go back perhaps in the fall.

My husband and I spent two nights at the Chateau by the Lake in the the middle of the week. There were many pluses. All rooms overlook the lake, rooms are meticulously clean and nicely redone, a little quirkiness factor which I love. Comfortable bed and large bathroom with counter space (yay) and a great shower.
