My husband and i seek out casinos for the fun of it, when we travel so we were excited about this casino which is approximately 30 minutes away from where we stayed in San Diego. This time, we were able to take our 21 and 18 year old sons on the gaming floor. There are very few casinos in the... More

Great casino and I love how the non-smoking section is VERY clear with glass doors separating it from the smoking section. Not only is this great for the non-smokers, but it is great for the smokers to know where they can and can not smoke (unlike other casinos where the signs aren't always easily visable). They also have fun 'prizes'... More

The indian casino experience is something everybody over twenty-one is going to experience at some point. My mother-in-law is a casino enthusiast, and my wife wanted to play bingo, so off we went. Vegas, this is not, however I've been to worse places. They do have non-smoking areas and they do actually enforce that policy (watched that first hand). If... More

This was my first visit to the casino and I was pleasantly surprised by the spacious non smoking section. Kudos to the Management for providing this clean air option for those of us who can not tolerate the 2nd hand smoke. We took the drive in the hectic Los Angeles traffic and it was well worth it. The slot areas... More

The buffet at Sycuan Casino has a great variety of choices, but for me, it is always all you can eat crab legs, and I LOVE it! Great service. We also played a little on the slot machines there and my tip for the day there is quit while you are ahead! We only won a few dollars, but we... More

This casino is a little out there but if you don't mind the drive I think you will be pleasantly surprised. The casino was very nice. The casino floor has two levels, however the escalators were out of commission when we were there. The biggest surprise was a nonsmoking area that is separated by glass so you don't have smoke...

The casino is large and well lit. There is excellent entertainment and very good dining choices. It is also the closest to downtown San Diego of all of the gaming casinos in San Diego County.
