I took my wife to Pala Casino on one of their Celebration Packages. We had visited the casino before but had never stayed there. My wife loves Mama's Cucina, the Italian restaurant that's included in the package, so it was an easy choice to go there. The hotel is nice. We had a room overlooking the pool with the mountains...

We had a horrible experience at a hotel in Palm Springs and found an escape at Pala! We left the horrible Palm Springs Hotel and drove over to Pala as soon as we found they had an open room for us. The property is big enough to have something to do, gamble, eat, etc, or to just relax in your... More

We stayed a night to get away and enjoy our anniversary. We booked the suite overlooking the "mountains" and wound up with a whirlpool looking into the parking lot. We could see all the cars, valet, guest, etc. Very disappointed with the room considering what we paid for it. It was clean but for that price, I don't expect to... More

We stayed at Pala for one night on our way to Mexico. My brother had a promotion where the rates were very good, and we figured it would be a fun stop. The property is well maintained, and the landscaping is nicely groomed. The valet staff and bell staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms are larger than average. We... More

We stayed at the Pala Casino for our good friend's wedding weekend. Overall our experience was pretty decent. The room was very nice, and even though we did not have a very picturesque view, the amount of sunshine streaming in the windows was welcomed. I really like that the hot tub is away from the pool, we were able to... More

Pala is a wonderful place to stay for a short get-away. The rooms are large and very nicely appointed. We were on the 9th floor, mountain side, and could see pretty hills and valleys in the distance. All of the employees are friendly and helpful. If you go on a Tue., you can watch the 60 Plus show for free.... More

Pala is a great mix of playtime and relaxation. The casino has tons of slot machines, table games, and poker. Some of the games are played slightly differently than Vegas, but they are still fun. Food is awesome. I am yet to have a bad meal in any of their restaurants. The buffet has the most amazing desserts ever. The... More

Stayed at the Pala Resort for a Dusty Hernandez fight. It is about an hour from San Diego in the mountains in a beautiful setting. The room was modern and a nice size. It was too cold to use the pool but ate out at the outdoor bar there and the area was very clean and set up well. The... More

I love staying up at Pala Resort. It is up in the mountains in a beautiful setting. The pool area is pristine and never too crowded. The rooms are clean with good views, no stupid resort fees, and they have coffee makers in the rooms. They only have room service in the mornings which is a bit of a pain... More

We have visited Pala for the gaming for many years. Finally we took the opportunity to stay the night at the hotel. Now I know what I have been missing for many years. The Hotel and the rooms are top notch. even if you prefer not to gamble the location is spectacular as you get mountain views. The gaming is... More
