This casino it's trashy, upstairs smells very bad and it's hard to walk through the casino and not get stopped by random people either asking for money or cigarettes, they have half liquor license so that means you have to drink in two different places restaurant and sport bar no where else, the have great dealers but that's about it...

If you like slot machines you have to check out Sycuan. I had no problem finding a slot I liked. The slots are pretty loose, I played all night and came home with extra cash!

In this day and age most casinos have found a way to exhaust the smoke to a tolerable level for non-smokers but Sycuan has chosen to coat everything and everyone with a deadly dose of nicotine. This place is terrible!

I love Sycuan! It has been a fun place to go just to reduce stress and play the slots, eat good food or spend time in the sports bar! Not much of a gambler per se but I do enjoy the slots from time to time and Bingo! I have gone on my birthday and received a little discount for... More

San Diego is lucky to have several casinos within its boundaries. While Sycuan isn't the biggest, we always have a fun time. Very easy drive, in fact it is probably the easiest drive of all casinos in San Diego. Buffet is okay and there is a decent sized non-smoking area. Have fun!

Sycuan is a great place to go and have fun. First go to the buffet for dinner. Eat and have a drink and then go hit the slots machines and if you are not doing good go to the Tables and play poker. If you like to play they have bingo at a certain time.

The best thing about this casino was the nonsmoking room. The casino was clean and parking was great. The Wachena restaurant was not good.

We decided to go back to the casino, not to play golf again. the casino was ok, my wife likes the slots, but they were to tight compared to the Hard Rock in Tampa. We still had a good time. they had a nice large no smoking room full of slots.

This place has the best venue for concerts! Love it! Love it!! Parking is easy and close by. The Up Close and Live venue is by far the best concert venue you will go to. I have been to see about 10 performers here.
