One night stop
Today we met Paul and Karen (Karen is the Kaspers niece), and some of Paul's cousins to do some wine tasting. We started at the Duffo Winery with just Larry and LeeDelle and then met up with everyone at the Falkner Winery, which was very busy. Falkner is one of our favorite wineries that we visited last January while wine tasting in celebration of …
During the period October 21st through the 26th, we attended the South Loafers' Chapter Outing also at the Pechanga RV Resort next to their casino. The last time we had seen many of the folks was at the AOC Annual Rally in Gold Canyon, AZ back in April. Was good to get to see them and to catch up on things. As usual, we had lots of great food to …
... Screamin'" was good so Alec and I (there being no other takers for California's longest and fastest roller coaster) ran off to do that. Best ride of the holiday in the expert view of Alec.
We took in (just the highlights, again) the Monsters Inc ride, a Muppet show, the Silly Symphony Swings, Goofy's Sky School (a ridiculously jolty mini rollercoaster in the vein of the "Mouse" at Alton Towers, for any 'coaster aficionados reading), ...
... but it came highly recommended by someone at Wilson Creek. Our experience at Europa was more entertainment than tasting since our server was quite a character. We didn't always agree with his recommendations, but he was happy to keep pouring so that he could share his enthusiasm for their wines. We had a great day out at Temecula, and not not just because of the wine! The weather was wonderful, the company great, the scenery ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Pechanga Resort and Casino Temecula
Loved Pechanga Casino
We stayed at Pechanga for 3 nights and had a ball. Our room was beautiful and the staff was very friendly. We loved all the restaurants and bars. The entertainment was first rate and the pool area was gorgeous.
I would recommend this place to anyone, I am sure everyone will enjoy it. Also they have a great assortment of slot machines and table games. My husband loved their poker room. He got to play in a Texas hold-em tournament and he really enjoyed it.
My boyfriend and I stayed overnight at Pechanga on June 12, 2004. The casino is very clean and looks new still. We stayed in a deluxe room with one king bed. The bathroom, spacious and tastefully decorated, had two sinks and a sliding wooden door separating the toilet from the main bathroom area. The pool, located on the third floor, was fairly small considering the size of the casino and went from 3 ft to 4 ft. There were shaded cabanas around the perimeter of the pool as well as an ample number of recliners. Live musical entertainment was provided up to 6:00 that evening at the pool area and I did enjoy the music while I soaked up some sun.
A Nice Resort in the Desert
I stayed here for 3 nights over Memorial Day weekend 2004. I thought the service was great. The concierge helped me find things to do since I do not gamble. The food at the seafood restaurant was slightly above average. The rooms were very spacious and clean. I like Vegas better but would stay here again if I did not want to make the trip to Nevada.
Had A Great "Girls Only" Weekend
My two girlfriends and I drove down from L.A. to have a "Girls Only" weekend. We were really happy with our room. We swam in the pool, had great massages and went to see a great concert. We did not eat at the hotel but had a fun time after the concert in the hotel's club, located on the top floor. The music and the dancing were fun.
My wife and I just returned from a disastrous weekend stay at the Pechanga Hotel. We live only 90 minutes away and after having taken several day-trips to the Pechanga casino. As far as casinos goes, this one is average. We decided to spend the night for the first time last Saturday. I made my reservation two weeks earlier over the phone. I requested the Romance Package that I had read about online. This was to include champaigne and strawberries upon arrival and breakfast in bed the next day. I also requested a jacuzzi suite. The jacuzzi was the real reason we opted to stay the night. Upon arrival, all went well. We enjoyed the Grotto restaurant and had fun gambling. When we went back to our room at 10pm, our walls were vibrating from the beat of music.
My husband and I took an impromptu trip to Pechanga the weekend of 3/5/04. We were very impressed. The hotel exceeded our expectations.
The room was spacious, the bathroom particularly spacious, great amenities, very comfortable bed, wonderful view. We found the level of luxury definitely matched the price. it was a very nice hotel, not some vegas or palm springs style less than nice for your $. We went hiking in the area, hit the casino a bit. We ordered room service and ate at the buffet, but didn't try any restaurants so I can't comment. Room service exceeded our expectations as well as far as quality of the meal. All in all, we had a wonderful weekend, and will definitely be returning for weekend getaways.
During our trip to California, we stayed at the Pechanga Resort and Casino. This was the most enjoyable vacation that me and my family have ever taken. We were greeted by the extraordinary reception area. That was nice! The Rooms were very spacious with a wonderful view of the Temecula valley. Each and every staff member we came in contact with treated us like we were royality and was very impressed with their hospitality. Dining was a great experience in all of the many resturants that are available such as the Eagle's Nest, what a view.
A bad experience
Some time ago my son, his wife and I visited your resort. We had dinner at the so-called Italian restaurant on the premises. I do not care to remember its name. My son and I ordered glasses of Chianti wine but were informed it was only served by the bottle. That is too much for 2 people and the cost was $17.50 for an unknown brand. We ordered osso buccco. It was served in the middle of platter with no trimming, vegetable or anything else. It was about the most horrible meal I have ever had. I even wrote Elmer Dills, the restaurant critic about the experience. Penanga is out for me.
I visited Pechanga last year, it was my first time to visit that part of the USA. I found the resort to be one of the best i have ever been in. The staff from all areas were excellent.The food was second to none and was served by very friendly people who could not do enough for you.The rooms were wonderful, clean, bright, and with an air of the native american. The reception area was very nice and made you look back at nature from the native american point of view. I will return for longer as soon as i can.
This resort/casino stands, literally above the rest with excellent accommodations and service. You aren't bombarded with all the chaos of Las Vegas, instead you are treated to a high-class gaming experience with top notch amenities. I would recommend this location as a destination of any traveler.
