Hard to find a venue for 650 attendees but we did it here! Good midway point from Riverside and San Diego. Hotel and casino is huge! Nice to see security checking room keys before getting on the elevator. Spacious rooms and a great view of the mountains.

Stayed: August 2017, travelled on business

My friend Evelyne from Everything Evelyne, was just invited to an "Influencer Mixer" at Pala Casino Resort and Spa. Everything Evelyne is a big Fashion blogger in Newport Beach and since I do a lot of her photographs, I was invited too. Pala is perfect for friends(moms) quick getaway or even a quick romantic getaway with your hubby. We relaxed by the beautiful pool, enjoyed very affordable spa facial, stepping down the "Cave" for delicious wine tasting, ate at one of their many fine restaurants, enjoyed a UB40 concert and gambled till..... o'clock. A fun, easy and affordable staycation!!!

Spent 2 days at the beautiful Pala Casino and Resort. Everything from check-in to seeing UB40 at the Pala was awesome. Great security that checked your room card key everytime we hit the elevators. Gave us a feeling of extra safety when leaving valuables in the room. What sucked was the food in the Deli and Coffee shop. Breakfast was good at coffee shop...but the Philly cheese steak was horrible and expensive. We tried the deli later on that evening and again the sandwiches sucked. For 13.00 they gave hefty portions of very bad food...I would prefer small portion of GOOD food ...not visa versa. The coffee Amore had great coffee and sweets all times of the day so this was good. Casino floor is busy and live bands were strewn about. We will definitely come back...because this is a nice place...but we will try the steakhouse or buffet next time and avoid coffee shop and deli

Room Tip: Ask for pool view and you'll see the mountains better

Stayed here while attending a wedding at the resort. The wedding location was great for a small ceremony. It was in the grass out the back doors to the left. We then went inside to a private room and had a great time. We were early and enjoyed the casino prior to the event. After the event we stayed the night and enjoyed a great large room and was very clean. All the staff was wonderful and we really enjoyed the evening. Great stop for a couple hours or a few days. If you are staying for a while, there are many things to do in the area while staying here. Clean, large, options, and great location.

We went to the "resort" in hopes of a relaxing weekend...the pool was shutdown for repairs...and the caution tape was almost non existent and slack--so kids were swimming in green slimy water. Certainly not healthy, but no one there to check. No umbrellas for shade either. Our room smelled --moldy? but smelled! Each time we went in and out....and lingering. The decor is old, vintage 1975ish, This is NOT a resort...the whole place is tired and needs to be laid to rest. Our bed was a marshmallow or more of a trampoline...nice and bouncy! There USED to be an ice machine near our room, but it had been taken out. It was 95 degrees and ice is really necessary. But no ice machine nearby. The walls are paper thin...the person upstairs got up at 4:30 am and was not loud, but you could every footstep and every whisper. No insulation for noise whatsoever.
We stay in many midrange hotels for work but this one wasn't nice in any regard...really. We were afraid to drink the tap water as the pipes had to be old and rusty. No thanks..won't recommend and won't stay here again. Too expensive for even a nice motel....don't bother. OH and NO CELL SERVICE AND NO WIFI!!

Room Tip: Don't bother checking in
