If you want a standard modern motel in the Lassen Area this is it.  Actually it is an old motel (formerly the
Chester Manor Motel) with some upgrading, plus a new larger motel.

Rose Quartz is in the center of Chester on Highway 36. Chester offers a number of restaurants.

There is nothing especially distinguishing about the Rose Quartz, the view is mundane, and the landscaping un-imaginative.  It is a pleasant, anywhere-USA motel, but sometimes that is just what one might want.

It is very expensive compared to the alternatives.  For the cost of a couple nights here you could instead buy some camping equipment and stay at a no-fee campsite next to a lake with gorgeous natural beauty all around.
