We did not stay here overnight. We attended a live show featuring Don Rickles and Frank Sinatra Jr. The venue was poor. The floor is not elevated and you will be staring at the back of many heads in front of you. The folding chairs they use are also very uncomfortable. On a positive note, the sound was very good...

My wife and I stayed here from 2/4/12 - 2/6/12. Check in was pretty easy. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The casino had a nice variety of slots and they weren't as stingy as the ones at Pechanga. While it was a bit cool for the pool, the pool area looked very nice. I was... More

We stayed only one night at this property, but we really enjoyed the hotel, casino and the resturants. The room was a petite suite, it was very roomy, had a large bathroom with a whirlpool. The room rate included all fees etc. of which there were none. The resturant that we ate at was Itailian, and was very good, although... More

A birthday celebration at Pala was, once again, an enjoyable experience. The resort and casino is also celebrating - 2011 is its 10th anniversary on the Pala Reservation in San Diego County. This certainly is one of the best designed and maintained hotel/casinos in the area. Our large, airy pool view 9th floor room was spotless, with a panoramic view... More

My daughters and husband gave me a very nice birthday gift which included a night at a mini suite in the Pala Casino. They know I like to play the slot machines and go to casinos. Of course, my husband was with me. We arrived early on a weekday so we were able to have the buffet lunch prior to... More

I have stayed at Pala a few times for work related travel, but it has been expanded since I was there last. THe rooms are clean, with big bathrooms. I was upgraded to a jr suite at checkin and the room had a table and couch that folded out to a bed. THere was also an ipod dock/alarm, but it... More

Besides the rule against taking outside food and drinks to your rooms, they also do not allow visitors up in the rooms. The high speed internet advertized is an ethernet cable internet, not wireless. And it costs $10.95 a day. Wireless is available in the cafe near the buffet at the other end of the casino. I attended a special... More

The hubby and I spent a much needed night away from the kids. This Indian reservation hotel/casino is well located in northern san diego, not far from my house. We gamble here often and decided to finally spend the night. We had a suite with 2 rooms that included a jet jacuzzi and a huge walk-in, double headed shower. Both... More
