“something different”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013

I went to a concert at Pauma casino and did not want to stay at the casino hotel so I chose this quaint place. The location is great, close to the casino. If you want to avoid the typical hotel room with the noise and crowds of a typical casino hotel stay here. There is a nice homey
restaurant and bar with home cooking. I love that they built the bar around a lovely tree and incorporated in the space, kinda cool. However, the room lacked new decor and it was a bit funky inside. It was clean but if you want modern furnishings don't go there. The tv only had a few channels available but we were not there to watch tv. It's got its own charm and fun to try for the unusual night out.

Room Tip: Get a room with the fewest neighbors if possible, walls are thin...

We had tickets to see a concert at Harrah's Casino but did not want to stay at the casino hotel. Instead, we were looking for something more cozy, quiet and perhaps rustic than the glitz of a casino atmosphere. We found the Lazy H Ranch. It is your classic 1960's or 1970's motel. The positives: Rooms are on the first floor, seperated by masonry walls; the grounds have a decent restaurant in a seperate building; a swimming pool is available; the rooms are away from the road among mature trees and rustic landscaping; and you are minutes away from Harrah's Casino and a littler further from Pala. The negatives: the rooms had somewhat of a smoke smell and the furniture and furnishings are rather dated. This hotel can be recommended if you are looking for something different, and like the idea of spending time in a hotel atmosphere that is a throwback to the past.

Room Tip: This place can be an excellent choice for people intending to hike or cycle the Palomar Mountain are...

What a hidden gem! We stayed here because we didn't feel like spending $300 for a room at Harrah's & I'm so happy we did. It was like stepping right back in time. We stayed in a renovated room and it was nicely decorated with a country chic style. It was clean ans spacious. Nice for the price! We also had drinks in the restaurant bar and highly recommend the margaritas made with fresh lemons grown in the ranch! The bard had a nice view of the humming birds feeding outside. Staff was friendly and helpful and this place is just a skip and a hop to Harrah's and valley view casino. If u are looking for luxury you can pay $300 to stay at a casino but if you want a reasonably priced room to relax and rest your head on then this is the place!!! Definetly will be returning soon.

This very simple, clean and quiet motel in the middle of two huge casinos, is special. The rooms lack many of the modern touches that we may have grown accustomed too, but staying there is like going back in time to a small tropical spot in Hawaii. The TV's are small, the shades are funky, the beds creaky (but comfortable) and the decor is dated.......BUT......It's very clean, quiet, the water pressure in the showers is awesome, the staff is very friendly, the coffee maker make steaming hot coffee with giant cups and in the morning when you open the door, you are greeted by a couple of friendly feline. I loved it for a change.

The price is very reasonable and if you need a room and the casinos are full, it may literally save your life.
