We were in town for a wedding and this is where the party chose to stay, so we joined in the fun. We had our choice of a mountain view room on the 10th floor which overlooked the parking deck and the mountains to the North. The facility consists of a hotel and casino, with each having their own parking... More

When we went to check in we were advised that we were getting a managers upgrade from the standard room that we booked to a junior suite at no extra charge. What a nice way to start our visit. The room was fairly spacious comfortable and clean. The room was in a corner location so we had great views out... More

Pala is the real deal. A resort with all the amenities (and casino) one could want. The setting was spectacular and staff supper friendly. Was there with a small conference and we were all impressed. Worth a try!

Always enjoy Pala...every time when making reservation, the team will ask if our visit will be for any special occasion. The minute you entered the room, you will see a very sincere banner over the headboard.... so touching and making the whole stay a very memorable one. One time, trying to peel the banner in order to take home and... More

We have been going to Pala Casino for years and were very disappointed on our visit just a few days ago. We hadn't been to the casino in 2014 & we needed a short overnight out of town trip. So we decided to go to the casino. We learned that they were opening a new food court that would add... More

My daughter chose the dinner salad and and I chose the tomato soup. Her salad had no green in it at all. The lettuce... More

Pala, as of 1/4/15, closed down Los Amigos Mexican Restaurant and Mama's Cucina Italiana at the same, two new venues will be opening in a few months. The Italian restaurant was, in my opinion, lacked really well done italian dishes, it was mismanaged. No one seemed to care of the quality of the food. It may be argued that their... More

We were there two nights. The rooms were larger than we are used to seeing in hotels. Even the bathroom was large with the toilet area having its own door from the sink, bathtub, and separate shower. The room was clean and quiet. You must be at least 21 to check in. Be prepared to show your room key to... More

Pala initially left a good impression - beautiful view, large room, large bathroom. We quickly realized that first impressions can be deceiving. Inedible food, terrible customer service, bad employee attitudes, and tight slots made Pala one of the worst hotel experiences we have ever had. Walking in to the lobby, I noticed a strange smell. It smelled like some sort... More
