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.

We booked one night as we were invited to a party at the casino and it is located about 40 minutes outside of San Diego. The room was ok, new but needed repairs. It had 2 beds and a small patio, cost was $315 for the night and was very tiny. There were toss pillows on both beds, they frankly... More

We usually play bingo at the Viejas Casino, then shop at the Viejas Outlet mall every December. This year, the casino relocated their Bingo Hall across the street to their outlet mall! What a great decision! We had the best time shopping before bingo and afte! We didn't have to allow extra time to navigate ourselves through the crowded casino... More

We stopped at the Viejas Casino as we travel back from San Diego to Tucson for breakfast. We were very surprised at what we found. Definitely a luxury property with beautiful midcentury style décor... look up and check out the chandeliers. We loved the design, but were also impressed with the smiles and welcome we received. Everyone wanted to help... More
