Although I didn't visit the casino I stayed at the hotel last weekend. The hotel is in a beautiful setting. The room was very large with a seating area (comfy sofa and chair) with stunning views over the golf course. The room was clean, bed comfortable and excellent bathroom. All of the staff that I encountered were friendly and helpful.... More

I stay in this hotel on a regular basis, I joke with my family that this is our country home. For me the location of the hotel is perfect, not to far from the city, but in a location that makes you feel your are on vacations. My main goal to come here is not to gamble, I enjoy: -... More

What a place!! It seems others feel the same way, considering the place was packed on a Tuesday night. Very comfortable setting, hotel was well kept and designed. The pool seems set up to host the kids ,while the adults play...so a little on the sedate side. The only bar I could find was downstairs hidden from view and closed... More

My husband and I like taking weekend trips to places we have never been, this weekend getaway was planned this month to Barona Hotel and Casino. Every month we have been going to Sycuan Casino hotel for about 3 years now but we took our chances and spent the time to give Barona a chance, we heard a lot of... More

This casino used to be our favorite but not so much now. Going to the buffet can help you gauge the staff and friendliness. Last time we went the hostess took 3 sets of people and seated us at our tables like we were cattle. The people eating were rude and the buffet is huge and the food was ok,... More

Everything was really nice when we were there June 30th, 2015. It was clean, friendly, and I saw a lot of people having fun. It was not my first visit there, but it was the best one yet. The dinner was great, the fireworks show was awesome, and I left happy.

I would have rated this hotel 4.5 if possible. Incredibly clean resort hotel with excellent food and great service. About 40 minutes east of downtown San Diego in a beautiful valley lies the hotel/casino. Rooms are large and comfortable with great views, golf course on one side and valley views on the other. The employees and management really know the... More

Visited Barona Casino on a bus trip and was pleasantly surprised. The casino has one of the best grounds in San Diego. Very clean air friendly staff and the party people are the best. What fun they randomly pick players and give away money. Another best kept secret is the coffee shop. Specialty drinks are only $1.00!!! Got to peek... More

Wonderful clean comfortable room and kind pleasant staff. Quiet and we left the door to the balcony open for fresh air as we slept. Peaceful good price and plenty of eating options. No alcohol served anywhere other than your room and that worked out fine. A nice compromise. We would stay again
