“Father's Day Weekend 2014 - RV Park”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

We came down to Pechanga RV park for a Father's Day weekend getaway.

In a nutshell, it was a nice, clean campground with reasonable amenities but I probably wouldn't stay more than a weekend.

The campground is green and lush with lots of grass and shade trees. Sites are all large concrete pads so parking & leveling is a breeze.

The restrooms and showers were clean and tidy.

We were provided with a list of cable TV channels, but we didn't even bother hooking up the TV.

As others's have mentioned, we found the wifi sketchy, but workable. I saw the wifi antenna directly across from our site so the signal was great but the kids had to keep re-logging in on their ipads every 20-30 minutes or so. I was able to watch hulu on my tablet without too much buffering so, in all, it worked ok for light use.

We stayed in E-23, which is a premium site (meaning it is slightly larger than the other sites and has a table).

They require a $10.00 deposit for the card key to access the restrooms, showers and pool area. For some odd reason, they require exact change and get a bit snooty about making change for you (I was told they would break my $20.00 as a "one time courtesy"...here's an idea...there's a casino next door, have them stick a few more 10's in the register every morning). Other than that the service was fine.

The spa was out of service when we were there so that was disappointing. The pool was clean but a bit on the small side. Also, one more restriction here. RV Guests can only use the RV pool. The hotel pool is only for hotel guests; again a bit of a disappointment especially given that the spa was broken.

There is a convenient shuttle bus that will take you directly from your site to the front door of the casino and back again, or it is a short walk over there.

The restaurants there were quite good and, in all we had a very good time.

The kids had a good time riding skateboards with other kids at the park but there isn't much else for anyone under 21 to do

Room Tip: WiFi in space E-23 wasn't bad.

Lovely large rooms with nice views. On one of our stays here they even upgraded us to a suite. Casino is quite large and has just about everything you could ask for. The prices are reasonable for this type of hotel. Only caveats...the informal cafe/cafeteria near the entrance can be really bad. I once ordered a corned beef sandwich and got, basically, strips of fat on rye bread. Oh, and don't leave your bags in their lobby hold area...they managed to rip the handles off of my suitcase, so I guess they don't much care how they treat your bags. Other than those two things, this place is a good bet.

It's a large property with an average casino. I am rating it 4 out of 5 because of the rooms and hotel in general. The rooms are large, modern, and lots of water pressure. I found the staff helpful and friendly. When you get in the big hotels like this you quickly become a number, but didn't feel this was here. I also will state the food choices were great and prices very competitive. The pool was a bit weak for a property of this size, but over all nice place.

Surprisingly, or I should say to my surprise the prime rib & sea bass was spectacular. I was so skeptical about the food...figured it would be similar to production buffet line food, I was wrong! It was very tasty and super tender, very nice dinner! The sea bass was equally delicious.

The staff was on top of everything without missing a beat! Truly in sync...great job!

Not bad at all considering I am not a fan of Pechanga!

Room Tip: Not a bad venue ...wish it was not in Pechanga!

Had not been to Pechanga in a few years so was happy to see all the good changes that have been made. First we got an upgrade to a suite it was on the 9TH floor with a great view an had all the high tech items. The gaming floor was very big an had all the newer games. They now have all kinds of different places to eat with different items in each.
For a quick couple of days this is a good place to go.

We stayed 3 nights at Pechanga during the week. Pechanga fills up, and is crowded on the weekends as with most hotels around in SoCal. Rooms were spacious and clean. Pool area was well kept. Pool was small for swimming laps. Casino had a mild smell if tobacco smoke, but not too bad for a casino. Food court had decent food. We didn't try the buffet, but breakfast at the café was good. Outside of the hotel within 5 miles were shopping malls, winerys, and horseback riding for the kids. I would recommend Pechanga if you happen to be North of San Diego in the Temecula area. There is also a R.V. Park that looked very nice. Compliments to Pechanga, as I usually don't give 5 stars.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms near construction.

Yes, I noticed! Thank you for bringing back the in-room coffee! I also noticed several upgrades on this last trip, including a newly remodeled lobby, remodeled restaurants and some new offerings. I think the coffee bar/bakery is a great addition.
