The Chateau at Lake La Quinta
Ranked #4 of 4 Hotels in La Quinta
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 April 2012

We weren't sure what to expect, but when we arrived felt we made the right choice. Mary was very hospitable. She made every effort to make us feel comfortable. The bungalow was private and exceptionally clean. We enjoyed a different breakfast every morning. The view from our private balcony overlooked the lake. We would definitely return to this calm and peaceful hotel.

My boyfriend and I were looking for an affordable B&B where we could spend our one year anniversary/my birthday, and Lake La Quinta was perfect. We arrived a little early and they were very accommodating and we got into Chateau Spa Suite #9 earlier than regular check in time.

The room was cute, cozy, and updated. It was smaller than what it looked like in pictures, but that's the funny thing about hotels...they have pictures taken from the "perfect" angle so the room comes across as looking bigger than it actually is. However, we did not mind...after all, we were there to celebrate our anniversary, so we didn't need much room anyway. :) The view from our room was absolutely beautiful and there was a nice, private balcony area where we could sit and enjoy it. Breakfast both mornings was delicious and meat-free for those vegans, although I wouldn't have minded some bacon or sausage on my plate. :) We also had in-room massages through the massage company they advertise in the lobby- Healing Hands Massage Therapy- ask for Teresa! :) They did an amazing job on my Swedish massage and the BF loved his Deep Tissue massage!

Overall, I would definitely recommend Lake La Quinta Inn, and I look forward to returning with the BF, on a hopefully "cooler" weekend so we can use the fireplace...

Room Tip: It looks like they are all newly renovated, so you can't go wrong...

This was our first stay in the California Desert area and I came across Lake La Quinta Inn when I was scanning trip advisor to find a quiet romantic get away.My husband and I could not be happier with this choice.We stayed in one of the Bungalows and it perfectly matched the pictures posted on their web site which we all know is not a true reflection for so many hotels.
The room was sparkling clean with a very comfortable bed and I loved the bath products.
The staff was very pleasant and helpful.The breakfast timing and choices could be more flexible but the setting is very nice.We went to Lavendar Bistro which is near by for dinner and it was very good but Palm Springs is a 20 minute drive.

First and foremost, this being our first visit to the "desert," I wasn't real sure where we wanted to focus our stay. I found the Lake La Quinta Inn on tripadvisor and contacted Chris who took it from there. His service, patience (for my unending due diligence) and attention to detail from the first call to the day we checked out was "first class" and then some!

The Inn is set in a very quiet and secure residential area. It faces out to a beautiful lake with a fountain that is illuminated at dusk. For location, the Inn is close to everything, especially wonderful dining, shopping, golf and hiking. (I would recommend the service, "Standby Golf" for obtaining tee times and reduced greens fees). Chris is unreal with his knowledge of the area and his recommendations and assistance in obtaining reservations for dining exceeded our expectations.

Our bungalow, "Captain's Quarters" is located apart from the main chateau just a few steps from the pool and jacuzzi. Off of the main room are french doors that open out to a balcony that faces the lake. It is a great spot to have coffee in the morning or a glass of wine before dinner. A very comfortable king sized bed with the finest cotton linens made for great sleep. A gas fireplace is located in the corner of the room and added to the warmth. A large flat-screen tv also provided good viewing from anywhere in the room. The bathroom and shower are most spacious and were stocked with "green" organic products. The cotton "waffle" textured robes were a wonderful discovery. Just away from the double vanity was a separate toliet room that provided well for privacy. This bungalow also has it's own hot tub located just outside of the bathroom on a private patio.

Breakfast is served between 8:30 and 9:30 am. The hot breakfast consisted of fresh fruit and juice, coffee and a main course that included eggs, waffles, pancakes, etc. that rotated throughout the week. Mary always saw to it that we were well taken care of at breakfast. Her tasty mexican omelettes were a treat!

We can't thank Chris and Mary enough for making our first trip to the desert such a wonderful experience! We are counting the months until we can get back!

We stayed here from 2/15/12-2/21/12. Everything lived up to the already great reviews posted. Breakfast was varied and delicious each day and if you only made it close to the 9:30 cut off they still happily served you without hesitation. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms are in wonderful shape and were kept spotless. The views are great and the atmosphere was peaceful and relaxing. It was a bit chilly to use the pools but they were kept up nicely and they are heated if anyone did feel like using them. I highly recommend these accomodations to anyone. If you don't mind driving into Palm Springs and being away from the Palm Springs buzz a bit and just want a comfortable and relaxing place stay this is the place for you. There is plenty to do in La Quinta and Palm Desert close by so it is not like you are in the middle of nowhere or something. We got a great deal via Expedia but we'd have had no problem paying the normal pricing to stay here again.
