Easy to get to from San Diego via the train and complimentary bus ride from El Cajon. Casino seems awfully big, but then they have sections of casino with no-smoking areas. Craps tables play a bit differently from Illinois casinos--a bit disturbing if you're playing odds of the roll on the dice. Food and drinks easily available, but be careful... More

I loved the outlet mall, the surrounding shops the beauty of it all. The Casino wasn't all that great, but I'm not a gambler, so was kind of lost.

Nice casino but no table games in non smoking area and didn't seem like slots paid very well, seemed rigged. Hotels rooms way too expensive, stay elsewhere if going.

The Casino & Resort Hotel is very nice. People were very friendly and helpful in answering the questions that I had about the Resort and surrounding area. It is right across the street from the Outlet Mall and is part of the complex. They are building on to the hotel so will be nicer.

We ate at a new restaurant called Far East Express. Great prices, great tastes and the service was impeccable. Clean friendly atmosphere was worth the small price tag. We would recommend to any visitors to the casino give this little place a try.

A great Casino. Quite far out of town, but well worth the trip. Do some shopping in the beautiful outlet mall across the street from the resort. Have a wonderful meal in one of the many restaurants, and then enjoy the many gaming areas. Security is excellent. Very friendly people. Incredibly clean and well managed.

I am not a gambler, but have been to lots of different casinos to check out the buffet and restaurants ect. This one is OK. Some of the dealers like to see you win, others just hate their jobs. So my experience as you can see will only be back if the dealers smile a little more.

There were no smoke-free rooms that had black jack tables like Pala casino, but there were smoke-free areas. Since I like black jack, I was disappointed. Buffet was awesome, their outlet shopping stores were awesome. Liked the band playing at the casino on the weekend nights, so it does not have to be all about gambling or going home…you can... More
