"Pala Experience"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I loved the rooms and how spacious it is. I think the only thing that bothers me is the check in upon entering the elevators. I get the identification is necessary but it's a hassle. It would be good to do a QR code and upon check in the front to do a picture image and assign the codes for each adult so when the front scans the code it will display the picture and speeds up the process and tells them the room number that are in. Another thing is to update your key card and have it available as an app so we can use our keys to check in.

"Will not be back."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Wasn't completely transparent about all adults needing ID to even get up the elevator. Constant badgering of my husband and children trying to get into the elevator after multiple times talking to managers regarding my husbands ID, we provided photo of his ID and our room was updated with him added yet continued to harass him each time he went up. Our entire family was staying at this hotel for my sisters wedding and had there been another hotel to stay at, I would've left.

"None smoking room."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
None smoking room had a super strong smoke smell. Also all of the sprinklers and smoke alarm were covered when I went into the room, I can't believe they didn't notice that when they cleaned the room before my stay. Nor how did they not notice the smell. I have never smelled smoke worst then this room and it was even their suite. They had security guard checking ID before you can go up to the room. I thought that was a little over the top because this hotel is in a remote area. told the lady at the front desk about the room and she acted like it was no real big deal. I didn't want anything but I wanted them to fix it before the next poor person had to deal with it but she didn't take notes or call anyone to tell them when I was checking out. Rate this hotel sadly as average for a casino hotel outside of vegas.

"Difficult check in experience."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Hotel room was clean and dinner experience was fun. Check In was disorganized and lengthy due to misunderstanding with hotel and Travel Planner pre booking. Hotel staff were accommodating, ONLY after we pursued the issue that we needed a room. That was disappointing!!

"Nice Accommodations"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The first room we were put in was supposed to be a non smoking room, but there was smoke and a smell like it was covered up. We called the front desk and were moved to another room that was fine. The rooms are updated and clean. The only thing is that they increase the rates dramatically when there is a concert and they do not have Happy Hour when there are concerts/performances..

Green Sustainability

Planet Pala – “Thinking Globally, but Acting Locally”Engendered by the Pala Band of Mission Indians tradition and culture of preserving the environment, in July 2008 Pala Casino Spa & Resort initiated Planet Pala, a green program committed to environmental preservation, the efficient use of energy and resources and the improvement of life in the community. An initiative that started as an internal effort to recycle and save now touches humankind on an international stage.Recognizing the world’s significant environmental challenges, Planet Pala involves hotel and casino guests, team members, management and vendors as environmental stewards in the implementation of sustainable, earth-friendly operational programs, including the conservation of water and energy, the use of eco-friendly products, recycling and community outreach. The entire program is funded by revenue generated from the sale of recycled materials.Also in 2008, the Pala Band of Mission Indians opened the Pala Transfer Station and Recycling Center on the reservation. In addition to handling all recycling for the hotel/casino, the Transfer Station serves the public. Since the opening of the Transfer Station and the initiation of the Planet Pala program, an average of 309 tons of waste per year is recycled and diverted from land fills.By expanding existing green processes and implementing easier, low-cost opportunities, Planet Pala was able to initiate a green culture throughout the entire hotel/casino very quickly.

Testimonials icon
"When people provide customer friendly service in today’s world, it should be applauded! So many businesses have taken almost and adversarial attitude towards the customer, in other words, they over compensate for a consumer not following through. As a business, it is my understanding, that the business should always follow through and do as they promise! Loyalty between consumers and businesses should remain alive, profit above service is a bad plan and will cost the business in the long run!" R.F. - Denver, CO
