Venice, Florida
Reviewed 9 December 2015

The Chateau at Lake La Quinta is a one of a kind gem in the USA! Having traveled to many European cities, this gem can compete with any small luxury hotel on the Amalfi Coast, Cannes or even Nice. A must for anyone visiting Southern California. Impeccable attention to detail in all areas.

Wonderful new decor everywhere! Outside is a new patio overlooking the lake with comfy chairs and dining tables; inside is qlitzy/sexy bar and cozy conversation areas. Rooms are all new, with exquisite bed linens. I actually took pictures of the shower to redo my own bath! BUT again! I could go on and on about how nice this renovation is,...

We went to the desert to just have a long weekend getaway...able to drive down from Tahoe. I discovered this little hotel via Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. This is a little gem located on Lake La Quinta (ok...as the hotel puts it...lagoon/ish). I call it a bit of Disney Land in the desert as we looked over the...

We stayed here for 4 nights this past week for work meetings and arrived a day early for pleasure. Chris was so easy to work with on the front end for arrangements for our small group- with reservations, food and beverage planning and meeting room options. The Chateau itself is lovely. The view of the lake is relaxing and the...

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...

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...
