  • Never been to this location before , was very impressed by the cleanliness and the workers. Came here for the bingo, I loved it it was fun and exciting and different than the San Manuel Casino was, they took their bingo out but it also sucks. Here I get electronic everything for the games without having to buy the paper packets as the other place would make you do. Great benefits for signing up for the discount card before you go to bingo, as I get a discount on my bingo and also the person that refers you get Bingo added to their account as well and my friend got an extra like 36 games for free for the referral. After we were done with the Bingo which was very close to winning a few times but we didn't win but it was just fun to have time. We went to the casino inside and played the slots ended up winning almost $300 at the very end and came back winning all my money I put into the casino and I still had about an extra 60 bucks left over. Went home Happy and enjoyed the day out. Thank you for a great time Pechanga. Will be back again soon.
  • I live really close to this resort & casino and it's honestly one of the nicest ones outside of Vegas. They're also adding another hotel plus much more which is almost done so I can't wait till it's all ready. They also have an amazing golf course! Only downside is that they used to have one of the nicest night clubs around called Silk where we always went to but has been shut down for quite some time now.
  • Pechanga was a gem of a casino for me. I always heard about it on the radio, but never took the time to visit. I made my way there for a bit of leasure and check out the sites as I waited for traffic to die down on my way from work. All I can say is... WOW! The drinks were great, the buffet delicious and the club rewards amazing enough to bring me back time after time again. The staff was very friendly and slot choices nearly endless. Definitely a must visit for casino goers in the San Diego area.
  • Variety of games is lacking (in our opinion). If you love to lose $20 in less than 10 minutes on the slots, you'll feel at home. We prefer roulette and video poker and it was hard to find many open machines here. The ratio of fancy slot machines to the games we prefer felt like 50 slots to 1 game. We won't be rushing back. The buffet was decent but not worth the money if you're not starving...
  • My wife and I enjoyed our wedding anniversary at Pechanga recently. We reserved a spa suite and both my wife and myself were very impressed with the room, the cleanliness, and the staff while staying here. I do wish there were more gaming tables to play on but I understand their main attraction are their slots. We ate at the restaurant Bamboo. The staff there were very prompt and attentive. They answered any questions we had about the meals as If they cooked the meal itself. I do plan on going back for another stay soon.
