“Pechanga”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

As far as casinos go, in terms of cleanliness and food quality this has to be up there with the best. The rooms are spacious, clean and ergonomically laid out. The restaurants are excellent, particularly the seafood one. I had a swordfish stew which was really, really good. The service was quick and attentive. The overall feel of the place is not the tacky vibe often associated with casinos, but actually appears quite smart and classy. If you're a gambling person, you won't be disappointed with the facilities here.

Room Tip: The standard ones seems as good as anything

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

This review if only for those who like Casino vacations. For years (30+) I went to Las Vegas, via plane or car and have been just thrilled to get out of LA and into "sin city" for great hotels, restaurants and the etcs. Time restrictions forced me to look closer to my home in Studio City, CA. Made reservations at the Pechanga Hotel/Casino for the first time.
Let me tell you. Las Vegas, watch out. Pechanga is the largest hotel in CA! The hotel is out of this world beautiful and so spotless you can eat off the floors. The people that take care of you are like old time LV when then cared. Outstanding. My room on the 11th floor was beyond perfect with every amenity included..think coffee/tea machine, safe, spa like bathroom, down bedding to die for.
Three casinos with all the Las Vegas machines and they pay! Amazing restaurants. Sushi to a 900 wine list restaurant. The only down side, is you need to pay for drinks in the casino while playing. $5.25 for a Vodka on the rocks. It's a California law. Soda and coffee and etc all are free. No free alcohol. In the morning hours they roam the casino with a cart offering free coffee and all the things you want for breakfast..free. It was an AMAZING vacation with wonderful people that want to be there for you to have a fun, safe and comfortable time.

Room Tip: 9th and 10th need a key...a bathrobe is included..but for the same price go 11th.

i decided to try Pechangas Buffet out while I was down in Temecula visiting family, and I will never go there or recommend that place due to an unattractive filipino snob I think her name was Vanessa.She was so rude and arrogant when I asked her where I could find the restroom at.That foreign nut looked at me and was so rude as if I was supposed to know they did not have a restroom inside the buffet.I watched as her and the other filipino people stood and gossiped about customers,as well as her constantly on her cell phone. They need to get rid of this girl I will never go to Pechanga again neither will I suggest it to anyone

Room Tip: stay away from vanessa

I never expected to find an Indian casino with Las Vegas qualities. However, it happened in Pechanga. This casino is incredible, especially its bars. The Round bar is recently remodeled and it is fabulous. High Limit bar is always great. Service is impressive. I like their unique shops. Restaurants are very competitive with LA restaurants. I think that the one of the best meals I ever had is Scallops & Braised Short Ribs in Seafood Grotto. What a treat. The only thing that reminds me it is not Las Vegas is the "Last Call".

Room Tip: Get the room with a jacuzzi.

Hubby and I went to Pechanga to celebrate our 45th anniversary. We chose a hotel/spa package for out 4 day stay. Upon arrival they upgraded our room to a mini suite with its own jacuzzi and a view to die for. The room was beautiful, comfortable, and immaculate. The spa package included a European massage for two, the wonderful room, and several discounts for in-house restaurants. The price we paid for all this (not to mention the casino) was amazingly low. All employees were very nice and accommodating to us and exceeded all expectations. We had a very relaxing and fun time and we can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Chances of getting upgraded are much better mid week. Ask for corner room with jacuzzi.

I give this casino 5 stars for cleanliness ONLY. This is the cleanest casino I've ever been in and I've worked in casinos for years.

The floors, machines, restrooms are spotless. Everything shines and sparkles. Casino smells wonderfully clean.

This place is huge huge huge.....prepare to walk.

Great selection of machines, nice non-smoking section. Plenty of restaurants and large food court.

The reason I gave this place 3 stars is because they treat their employees like crap. I know people that work/worked here and they are all treated like dirt.

The slot machines are not loose and the payback is terrible. Be prepared to bring $$$$ with you because they have very minimal low denomination machines here. Most of the machines here are $1, $2 and up.

The parking garage is not attached to the casino so you will have to walk outside before entering the casino.

Very nice poker room (upstairs), and good amount of table games.

Room Tip: Go to Pala or Harrah's
