Spent a night at this property and I can honestly say that 4 star rating is about right. They have 10 restaurant, clean room with 42" flat screen TV, tight security at the hotel area. The oval shaped pool is heated but kind of small this size of hotel. The spa was divided into 2 parts - half hot and... More

A chance hang out with friends and celebrate some birthdays took us to Pala. My wife and I have been to Pala for past events and gambling. Pala is a nicely appointed casino that is clean and generally well kept. Our room was comfortable and very clean. Other than being asked to pay 10.95 per day for internet access, I... More

We've stayed here before and never had a problem. Those were "spare of the moment" trips that we booked same day. This trip, however, we booked weeks ago online and won't do that again! Our "mountain view" room was of the parking structure (#351) and the rates weren't any lower than if we booked same day. The only accommodation they... More

I really like this casino. I've had the opportunity to stay there twice and both times I was impressed. Their customer service is top notch. One of the best casino buffets I've had till date. The king suites are spacious and modern. Very clean and comfy, love the mattress! Room service was fast and accurate. The casino part is good... More

I hesitate to write such an excellent view, for selfish reasons! I think that Pala is the best kept secret. Especially their Spa! We stayed at Pala for one night only. Were clever to book massages for myself and my husband. He enjoyed his Spa experience so much, he practically closed the place down! (It closes at 8pm). So glad... More

This is a beautiful hotel. The rooms are nicely decorated and the beds are extremely comfortable. You can't beat the bathroom. There is a wonderful soaker bathtub and a separate large shower. I also like the casino. The live music is always good and the buffet is superb. I would give it five stars except for the fact that the... More

I just got back from Pala Hotel and Casino. I was really unfamiliar to the place. I really was impressed with this place. The atmosphere was very nice. Walking throughout the complex, I did not feel like I was breathing heavy smoke from cigarettes. The staff was friendly and helpful. The Oak Room was fabulous for dinner. There was such... More

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
