The hotel itself is actually quite nice! Our room (I think we stayed in 602) was very nice. Clean room, the bed was comfy and the best part was the jacuzzi tub! The bathroom is just as big as the room! We ate at the buffet one night and my husband said it was the best buffet he has ever... More

I made reservation 5 months in advance to stay at this place. I was a part of a wedding party where the couple made sure the bridal party and guests would have a convenience access to the ceremony and reception. What I thought was going to be a weekend of fun was not so true to start. I was sharing... More

Since my mom goes to Pala at least once a month on those one-day "bus turnaround" excursions (where you pay a nominal price for the transportation and get it back in "funny money" plus lunch once you arrive at the casino), she has earned some "frequent player" points along the way and she was given a discounted room priced at...

We got a great price, as compared to many hotels in the area, but it is way off the beaten path. The room was nice, but not fantastic (definitely not as nice as similar rooms in Vegas). I don't recommend paying extra for any view, because the views aren't that great anyway. Oh, and unfortunately, the room next to us... More

Pala used to be my favorite casino/resort in the San Diegoish area. But not so much anymore. The check in wasn't a long line but there were 6 counter staff and only 2 were checking people in, the others were either typing away on the computer or standing talking to each other. Once we go to the counter the lady... More

Casino Hotels are generally predictable. Nice rooms, good service, unremarkable at best. The Pala Casino Resort provided some welcome relief from the ordinary. The rooms are spacious, immaculate, and provide a beautiful view of the lush Southern California valley laid out before you as a backdrop for the pool area. The service was above average, the room rates well worth... More

I stay at this lovely property almost monthly as they reward you nicely for your play with fantastic comps. This past trip was a little getaway before I return to work from a medical leave. Had a wonderful time and even bought a flattering swimsuit ( gained a few lbs since a knee injury ) at the Spa boutique and... More
