It's like the old adage of whether you want to see a glass which is partially filled with water, as half full-or as half empty. There are some really wonderful aspects to the Pala, and some unpleasant aspects. First, the positives. Visually stimulating views; from the upper floors. Vast public areas, including marble-clad lobby, large car garage, & adjoining casino.... More

Beware of loud construction right now... But if you know that before you arrive then you will still enjoy it.. My husband surprised me for a night away. Living in San Diego, this is a gem to sneak away to and still so close to home. We checked-in around 4:30pm and the front desk staff was friendly. He booked a... More

I brought my two kids here while my wife was out if town. The best of both worlds with slots and amenities, Pala is hard to beat. They have a huge shallow and heated pool for my kids to enjoy, ice cream stand and many eating choices. The rooms are impeccable! Beautiful bathrooms and ample space make this a great... More

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
