We had our first couple's overnight after our second daughter was born. We wanted to be close to Grandma's house, and Pala fit the bill. It was out of the way enough that we felt like we were getting away from it all. The pool was very nice, the spa was wonderful, and our room was large, clean and had... More

We stayed at Pala due to a wedding we were attending nearby. It is down a long, winding, rather scary two lane highway. Once you reach Pala, however, it is very nice. The hotel was very clean, check in staff was very courteous. I was surprised by how quiet the room was. The bathroom was huge! I loved the soaker... More

Stayed overnight in Pala as a Mother's Day gift to myself. Parking garage was full but really convenient to hotel. Pretty fountain in lobby with view of nicely landscaped lawn and pool beyond. Nice surprise upon check-in: it was my first time there and they had a Player's Card ready for me at the desk. Had to take a smoking... More

For the price is was okay. We came for a wedding that was here, so wasn't my pick. The hotel is pretty new, so everything was in good shape and clean. Convenient parking was a nice plus. Buffet was okay, nothing special. I'm not a gambler, so didn't participate there. Can't stand the smell of smoke, so that was a... More
