After a week of the manic environment of Las Vegas, I'm so glad I booked the Chateau, and only wish we'd been able to stay more than one night. The room we had was wonderfully comfortable, very well appointed, and such a comfortable bed. Our room looked out onto the lake, and it was lovely to watch the sun come...

Looking for a great place to stay in the La Quinta area? Look no further than the Chateau at Lake La Quinta. The recently remodeled property which is nestled among higher end private homes and a smattering of commercial properties stands alone as the only hotel on the lake. But don’t let the location fool you. From its humble beginnings...

Finally arriving needing a much needed break from work, once the taxi pulled up to the designer iron gates/front door, the General Manager greeted us as though we were old friends. The setting, pace, tone felt like my vacation would be amazing. I have arrived. The hotel, luxurious and modern, is set on the Lake featuring a water fountain lined...

Great small property on Lake LaQuinta. We originally booked an upstairs room, but when my wife saw the small balcony with metal railings blocking the lake view we moved to a ground floor room. We loved being able to walk out our patio door into a large seating area, and then walk across the grass to the lake! Beautifully renovated...

We had a wonderful time here. We stayed in a lovely room overlooking the lake but Frank took us for a wander round the other rooms and we decided to upgrade to one of the bungalows. The problem with this was it is so lovely with a deck right on the water we didn't really want to leave. Clean, beautiful...

While all my peers were shacking up in mass at the local Resort and Spa, I planned to escape with my bride to this sanctuary on the lake. She could not make the trip ultimately, but the cool vibe, warm staff, artisan meals and intimate ambience made the stay memorable. It's an indoor/outdoor non-pretentious luxury experience with "blood orange" vibe...

I was so impressed to find this little gem of a hotel. From the moment you walk in the door, you are taken into another world. Charming old world feel with modern luxuries and service.
