I stayed the night of Friday, June 1, 2018 in the farthest south-east end of the casino parking lot. I had called twice before and received conflicting information. First I called the casino RV resort and got told that I could only stay in the parking lot if there was no space in the RV resort. Later I called the casino itself and got told that I could stay for one night in the parking lot without checking in or registering.

When I arrived (at around 11 pm) there was a sign at the parking lot saying that a pass and to register with the RV resort first was needed. I ignored the sign and had a good night's sleep. It was quiet during the night but some truck traffic on the lot started rather early in the morning. My thanks to the Pechanga Casino for allowing to stay there overnight for free!

You can use the RV Park or just stay overnight in their RV lot for free. Casino gets very crowded on weekends. They have been involved in a huge expansion project. Don't be too surprised if there is still construction going on around here. Lots of retail shops and inexpensive fast food places within a short distance. Other casinos in the area, as well. Such as Pala & Harrah's Rincon

I go to Pechanga all the time; love it there. The RV Resort is fantastic, with everything you would like. If you belong to Passport America, the rate is just $25 per night Sun-Wed. Otherwise, there is an RV overflow lot at the very North/West side along Pechanga Blvd. (past the gas station). They ARE strict about early check ins. Check in is 2:00. If you want to check in before that, you need to pay $10. So, just park across in the parking lot and go in for a bit, come back out and check in. It's all good!

I was just at Pachanga RV Resort,in the new section in a Premium back in site. I was very surprised at how much the spot sloped toward the street.It seemed that all the ones here were the same,nice spot but all the new trees were dead.

I moved to the very rear of the space to get as level as possible,it was much worse near the street. I still had to get up on the very top of my blocks,as others had to do in the same section.I did see a few in the old section that had to use blocks but not as bad as the new section.

If I go again I will not stay stay in this section,I would stay in the old section.

On the positive side the shuttle to the Casino was prompt and came right to the Space.Coming back it sometimes took a while for them to show up,we asked about that and the driver said that they were stationed at the lot next to the RV park.

The nice thing about reserving on line is that you don't pay anything up front,you pay when you get there and they ask if you have any memberships like AAA,Good Sam, AARP etc.then they discount what you have on your conformation E mail,ours was $20 cheaper than what they quoted us.
For as large as it is there is not a lot of restrooms and showers, each restroom has 2 showers,they all seem to be on the outside corners of the park,to be fair the one at the pool was under construction.

Food is ok but very pricey $$$,I mean $15 for a sandwich and $8 for a beer to go with it,at their food court.check their website for the restaurants and buffet $$$

Large and glitzy and laid out so you will get lost following the overhead signs to the places you try to get to,but I guess they did that on purpose!
I may return but only after checking out other casinos in the area.

We stayed here for 7 days. It was a very nice park. Very clean. In fact, other than Fort Wilderness at Disney World, it was the cleanest, most well maintained place we have ever stayed. The staff was generally friendly, but not all of them were well informed about the area.

The shuttle drivers were very friendly and accommodating. We had a friend with us that needed a wheelchair to get around. He could get up in the shuttle via his crutches, but needed his wheelchair otherwise. The shuttle driver that came to pick us up, let him leave his crutches in her bus so he wouldn't have to carry them with us into the casino. She told us to just request her to come back and get us when we got ready to go back to the campground, and she would bring his crutches back to him. Also, the shuttle drivers seemed to know more about the area than the campground staff.

We felt the prices were very reasonable, especially since we were able to use the online coupon and stay during the week for $25.00 per night.

The casino was small (compared to what we are used to) but it seemed well visited. During the week, it was kind of slow, but weekends it was packed. So was the RV park. Reservations are highly recommended if you are thinking of arriving for a weekend stay.

We ate at the buffet restaurant 3 times. Twice for dinner and once for breakfast. The food was very good and they have a vast variety to choose from. We thought it was a little expensive ($22.00 for dinner, $15.00 for breakfast), but we guess the days of cheap buffets at casinos are a thing of the past.

The website doesn't say anything about a stay limit, so we are not real sure about that. They do have a monthly rate so we guess you can stay at least a month at a time.

They have an overflow lot where you can dry camp for free. I do not know if they have a limit on the amount of days you can stay in the overflow lot.

There's a gas station right next to the overflow lot. They have gas, diesel, and propane available there.

The only thing we didn't like is, in the 7 days we stayed, we had to move 3 times. It is their policy to assign each reservation a specific space instead of assigning the spaces as people arrive. For example, we wanted to stay Tues - Mon. They did not have one spot open for all 7 nights because of their site assigning policy. All the days were available, just not at the same spot. So, we stayed the first 2 nights in one spot then had to move to another spot for 2 days, then had to move again for the remainder of our stay. They wouldn't just assign spots as people came in. People can also request specific spots. This was a real pain, having to pick up and move, when all they had to do was assign vacant spaces as people arrived.

We voiced our opinion of their policy several times, but they didn't seem to care that it was an inconvenience to have to unhook everything and keep moving every time somebody else came in. They just kept saying it was their policy to assign spaces that way.

We talked to one guy who said he really liked the place but the last time he was there, he had to move 8 times!

Temecula is about 60 miles north of San Diego and 90 miles south of LA. The Casino is easy on and off I-15. There is an "Old Town" area to visit just up the road. It's modeled after a western town and has lots of shops and antiques to see.

We would recommend staying here for sure. Just try to make your reservations far enough in advance so you can get the same site for your entire stay.
