This is a four start Diamond AAA hotel. And it shows. Rooms are oversize and very nice. Food in restaurants is good not great. They are redoing two of them right now. My hubbie like the casino as it's big enough but not so big that you can't get around it. For those that don't gamble you can relax by... More

We live approximately 80 miles from this resort, but had never been. Seeing Ringo Starr has always been on my bucket list, so when I saw he was playing with his "All Star Band" at Pala, I went ahead and booked their Event Promotion. This included one deluxe room and 2 tickets to the show (we did not know our... More

...but there's no Room Service! This is my only negative about the resort. So I will have to tick them down for that. I am a big fan of dining in when I want to without having to do such time consuming things like putting on pants. Other than that, the grounds were spotless. The Grand Suite was very clean... More

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
