Awesome place for a staycation. The casino and hotel are attached so no need to venture outside. The area surrounding is in a valley so greenery, golfing and ponds are what surround you. Rooms are always clean and quiet. Every room has a mini balcony to enjoy your morning coffee on. Always a nice time here.

This is a good local retreat if you live in or around San Diego. The exotic rocky road conveys the idea or being far away from the city - and technically you are in sovereign land, which adds to the allure - although you are only 30 miles from downtown and just "around the corner" from San Diego's east county....

Need a break from your daily life but do not want a long drive? Need to play some golf, hit the spa, have some entertainment? All this and more is just a short drive from almost any area in San Diego. Stayed here several times and always enjoyed it. When entering the grounds you notice the gate wavers welcoming you....

I have stayed here several times, and each time I find something new to love this place. Rooms are spacious, bathroom is huge with separate bath and shower. Towels are excellent quality. There is a Kreug coffee maker in room. I miss the turn down service with the chocolate on the bed, but they leave the chocolate on night stand... More

We stay at this hotel twice a year because of how close it is to the theater my daughter performs at wo th her theater company. The only drawback is that the pool is very small & gets very crowded in warm weather.
