Of the many casinos to choose from in San Diego County, once you're there, Barona is a great place. There is a wide variety of slots for every type of gambler, there are table games, a big poker room, bingo and off track betting. I'm not big on buffets, but it must be great, as the line to get in... More

I have stay in the room and they are nice, however, the smoke on busy day can be bad. you must walk through smoking to get to none smoking then your room. I have gotten sick from the massive smoke from cigarette, cigars, and all other smoking device. I wear a mask to save my lungs.

Received two complimentary nights at Barona, even though I live in TX. Used those nights while visiting San Diego. Every staff member, from bellman, to front desk , to casino staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. It was a wonderful stay and I even won money. I'll be back.

We have been to many spas and consider ourselves connoisseurs of personal attention:} The checkin area was upscale and welcoming w/ a fireplace, leather sofas snacks, etc. Also some accessories products to peruse while we waited.

Went to Barona for my birthday with my husband and my brother's family (total of 7). Spent time in the casino. Nice large non-smoking area. Since it was our first time, they actually came up personally to welcome us as we were playing. There is an ice cream vendor in the food court that is to die for. LARGE scoop... More

It is always a good time here! We came in from a week of post holiday SoCal traveling to relax. Friendly staff, little chocolates, and I like the in-room Keurig machine. I love the food court. Especially, the burritos. Plus, winning makes it even sweeter! Don't forget to ask for your comps (free play, points, money for food court)!!! If... More

We mostly ate, shopped and gambled during our visit. We didn't stay at the hotel this time, but have before and liked it very much. The penny games payed off for us this day. Definitely get the players card before you start gambling. It saved us a bit on the room when we stayed here. Theres a lot of property... More
