We stayed there for one night. The rooms are very big but a bit dated. You can park the car in front of the rooms. Some of the rooms are quite far away from the main building. Because of the weather we couldn't use the pool or the golf course. The hotel itself with restaurant and bar are really beautiful.... More

We treated ourselves to an executive king room but, as described by others, found it to be very dated and rather shabby. That being said, the bed was comfortable, the room was spacious, and the staff very nice. I assume that most guests are golfers and they are more interested in the lovely greens than room decor.

Thank you for your feedback. We are terribly sorry the room did not meet your expectations. We are undergoing renovations shortly and hope we have the pleasure of having you stay with us again at that time. More

Drove down from Orange County for a wedding and decided to have a little staycation. Arrived late so really didn't notice much about the room except the musty smell and incredibly dirty windows. Came back later after the wedding and reception and couldn't last 10 minutes...just packed up the car and drove home in the middle of the night. Too... More

We had a "staycation" for a friend's wedding. I have a 3/5 because their wedding venue is beautiful! It's far enough away from the freeway and in a private garden so it's peaceful. The tent was beautifully decorated and has plenty of space. Now the part I hate writing. I try to find he positive aspects in every place, but... More

This is a great location and looks like an amazing golf course but the rooms are not very impressive. We stayed in a honeymoon suite and it was mediocre. Nothing special. The bathroom was small, had a cracked sink counter and we saw ants while we were there more than once. The restaurant food is good and the live bands... More

We arrived for a wedding weekend and were quickly checked into our room. Unfortunately, the previous guests (I assume) had left a large trash can on the patio filled with old linens, plates and food, and so there were literally thousands of ants swarming about. Our patio also had a rusted out old lounge chair with the fabric ripped out.... More

My wife and I stayed here for four nights whilst attending a wedding elsewhere in Fallbrook. In short the hotel needs a major refurbishment. The room was adequate and fairly priced with two double beds but was very very tired. We took breakfast twice in the hotel - no complaints about the food though the service was slow and not... More

I had a party to attend at Pala Casino, but they were "Sold Out" on rooms. I asked for the closest hotel to the casino, and Pala Mesa Resort was recommended.
