4 tennis courts are aging but functional. The desk clerk didn't even know they had 4 courts. Nicely landscaped grounds. Peaceful. Restaurant had the best French Onion soup I've ever tasted.

Not As Good As It Used to Be.

Posted Nov 28, 2016
Pros: Location was the reason we chose Pala Mesa Resort.
Cons: The rooms need to be updated. Not a pleasant feeling when you first walk in.
Location: The Resort is centrally located to golf courses, wineries and casinos.
Two night stay with a golf course view. Patio furniture was dirty, shower was clean, but looked dirty, hotel charges five dollars a bottle if you decide to drink it and the carpet is so worn, they may as well remove it. Neither room key worked upon entrance on the second day. Very disappointed on the quality of the room. Not how I remembered it on two previous visits.

I left my cell phone at home so to give the wife my undivided attention, but the one time I needed to take pictures " Darn " it was an awesome get away you won't be disappointed, its not the high it regency but very very close.

Old and Tired

Very outdated. Wallpaper peeling, tile chipping, pillows flat, TV buzzes. Glad to hear they are renovating the rooms next year. Can't come soon enough.

Decent for price

Our friends got married so this place was SUPER close to the venue. Our room was clean and spot on. Our room compared to the other ones were very different. If you pay extra you do get the nicer rooms. The walls are so thin, I could hear the kids next door as if they were in my room. The doors have the split doors so if you are in a group, this is fun amd beneficial in case one forgets a key.

Parking was a big problem and it became an inconvenience during our stay.

Pros: It was only 10 minutes from the wedding venue we came out for.
Cons: The room and the Aquaterra restaurant food.
Location: It is located close to the downtown Temecula area, which is very hip and vibrant. I recommend going down there to eat and hang out for the nightlife
We are not from this area and were coming in for a wedding nearby. The initial drive into the grounds made us feel very hopeful that this would be a very nice place to stay, and at $134 per night, I had an expectation that this was a very nice place to stay. It was not inexpensive. We were very disappointed that the room smelled musty and was very outdated. The furniture looked like it was from a thrift shop and the beds were very uncomfortable. We did walk the grounds and they are nicely presented. It is time for the rooms to be brought up to the state of their surroundings. At this time, I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. In addition, the food in the Aquaterra restaurant was not very good.
