“Wonderful time at Pechanga”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

We were on a road trip in California and decided to stay for two nights at this resort and casino. The place is immaculate. Large casino area, with many restaurants and a food court to choose your meals from. Golf course, spacious pool area, several night clubs are all available. The location is great. A large new shopping mall is nearby as are many other restaurant venues. The scenery is fabulous with the mountains surrounding the area. Employees of the resort were all very friendly and helpful.

We ate at the Cafe twice for the breakfast buffet. It was $11.95 and included adequate tasty food and orange juice and coffee or tea. We also ate at the Italian place in the food court. Had the lasagne and pizza and it was very good and fairly priced.

We really enjoyed ourselves and would love to return another time. For those who complain about the slots.....I do not know of any casinos who are paying out a lot in these economic times. You just need to pick your machines and play what you feel you can afford to play. We actually won several hundred dollars, which was more than I expected.

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher levels will probably experience no internet signal and if you stay on the weeken...

We had a good stay at Pechanga for the weekend. The rooms are very spacious and the beds are so comfortable! I would definitely recommend for a weekend getaway - very cozy. Ask for the AAA rate.

Lots to do here also - about 12 restaurants, comedy shows, gambling, great spa, etc.

This was a welcome getaway for my husband and me. Pechanga is nestled amongst the hills of scenic Temecula. It's a lot larger than we initially thought from the advertising, and scrupulously clean for a casino/resort.

The resort was all decked out for the holidays with delightful Christmas decor that added such a festive ambiance to the whole place. Room was spacious, bathroom over-large. Bed was comfy with luscious soft sheets. Staff well trained, helpful and friendly. There are ample restaurants, a gorgeous championship golf course, and a welcome spa, and it's situated just down the road from picturesque Old Towne Temecula.

We ate at several of the resort restaurants - the highlight was lunch at the Temecula golf course restaurant. I had the absolute best fresh smoked tuna sandwich. YUM. My husband had excellent fish tacos, and we topped it off with a fabulous creme brule that neither of us needed, but enjoyed every minute of it.

The spa was a fabulous experience. From the moment you step up to the check in counter, you breathe a sign of relaxation. It is quite lovely for a hotel spa within the hotel proper. They have a "quiet room" in which to relax, complete with bowls of fresh fruit, herbal teas, dried fruit and almonds, all to refresh you before your spa experience. The treatment rooms are fitted with dimmer lights, which are dimmed low whenever you are laying on your back (how nice). The lemongrass massage oil was heavenly. They had a seasonal special of a cranberry foot massage, but I went for 80 minutes of bliss with a full body treatment.

The "after massage" locker area was complete with a steam room, which my therapist offered to set up for me. They have showers complete with body wash, shampoo and conditioner, an area with a hair dryer, hair products (spray, mousse, gels, etc) and fresh comb and brush for you - with a sterilizing machine right next to the brushes so you know they are sterilized and cleaned with each use.

We got a tour of the facilities. We were there as a getaway, not to gamble, but the machines were being well used and lots of gaming tables. For a quick getaway, i can't imagine anyone from Southern California being disappointed that they didn't make the long haul to Vegas.

The golf course is beautiful, so you have everything you want right there in one "away from the crowds" picturesque location.

There are two nightclubs. Silk rooftop nightclub was first class - trendy and cool - way too trendy for us, but our kids would love it.

Pechanga also hosts notable entertainers. And it's situated in close proximity to the great wine region of Temecula - we were delighted to visit Wilson Creek, and there are lots others in the same close proximity.

The only recommendation I would make is to supply a couple more pillows on the bed - but this is a personal statement. I'm not a fan of feather pillows, so one was too flat for my liking.

To sum it up, if you live in Southern California, I highly recommend a getaway to the lovely Temecula Valley and Pechanga Resort & Spa - even if you don't use the casino, or are interested in gambling, it's a rejuvenating experience.

Pechanga is a resort-casino that has slots, tables. Smoking is allowed inside. Tried the machines from 1 cent to $5.00 all paying low returns. Even with a bonus of 25 spins, I only got 35.80 Machines are well spaced and plentiful. Cafeteria was fair, chinese empty, and some other restaurants. Lost 500.00 easily in 1 hour--never again will I go to this tightwad casino.

I love this place it's a shorter ride than Vegas and has everything you need in place. The restaurants, the hotel accommodations and the casino are all great. The casino staff is great as well. They are so accommodating.

I stayed at the Pechanga on business. I am not really into Casinos, so I cannot judge based on that.
I was expecting a great, luxirious hotel. It is not. It is an OK place to stay. Clean, average rooms.

Really terrible wi-fi. I was planning to work while staying at Pechanga which I could not do at all. The internet connection is very bad all throughout the place (even at lobby)

Great thing: several restaurants and shops just downstairs, so when you're on jet lag like I was,you can find easily a place to eat at any time during the day.
