“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

My wife and I spent an extended amount of time as guests of this hotel. While the staff is execellent, we were particularly impressed with the front desk who patiently assisted us with our many requests, and with Kenn and Cheryl whose kindness was much appreciated. Ths is a beautiful resort and although our stay for two months was unexpected, we're very lucky to have been referred to Sycuan Resort.

Thank you for your review Bill. We truly appreciate your feedback. As much as no one likes unexpected events to occur, it is a pleasure to have you and your wife consider Sycuan Resort as your home for the two months you are here.

One of my favorite concert venues in San Diego. Specifically because it's small (457 seats), comfortable, every seat is great, and the bar is separate from the performance area, so you aren't disturbed by waiters, waitresses, clanking dishes and whirring blenders the way you are at many other San Diego concert venues. Here, the focus is on the music first. If you're fortunate enough to see a live act here, it will be memorable. The acoustics are great, the seating is comfortable and plush, and you can have a great time in the casino before or after the show. Sycuan isn't my favorite casino in San Diego (look to other reviews on the casino itself), but it is one of my favorite concert venues. They get great acts and typically have no ticket fees. Highly recommended!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write an amazing review on Sycuan Casino's Live & Up Close venue. We find that it is a great amenity to us and love having the opportunity to have accommodations as an option for when guests wish to turn an evening event into a night of fun and not worry about driving all the way home. We can't wait to have you back!

I was drifting through El Cajon and needed a room for the night. I looked all over El Cajon, and. Opulent find anything that I was going to be confident in. Went by a few local motels, usual druggies hanging out. Checked out the Sycuan Golf and Tennis resort. Now don't let the name fool you. I never saw the golf course, however I walked in got a great rate, a great room, and they have security on property making rounds. It was safe. I was so pleasantly surprised that I returned a week later on business and stayed there again. Great Staff, great clean room with tons of amenities. Old style two story buildings, quiet. Nice accommodations

Room Tip: I had a corner room, was very happy

This is the old Singing Hills golf course. It is a mature course with lots and lots of trees. Literally every fairway has trees on both sides. It's not my favorite course in So Cal (not even top 50) but it's worth the greens fees if you're in the area.

This place is funky. Kind of has that old school, retro vibe. My buddy and I booked a suite for a weekend golf outing and found it to be quite impressive. Yes, the old brick and mortar walls have a fresh coat of off-white paint and new contemporary furnishings but the attraction is the golf, truth be told. This property has the best Executive Course I have ever played and we had the added luxury of having our single story suite open up to the finishing holes. Nice place for a weekend.

Room Tip: Check out Echo Lounge and have your meals in there, you'll feel like a "member."

We have been visiting this property for many years. The golf courses are in perfect condition and the pace of play during the week is acceptable. I would recommend either the "Willow or Oak" golf course for an enjoyable experience.
We like to stay and dine at the Sycuan Resort without leaving, but lately at the " Sycuan Grille" the food preperation has very poor with a limited menu selection. Do yourself a favor and pass on the resturant. We are now dining in El Cajon or San Diego.

Lets start with the good first. I played all the courses here and all of them are very scenic. They maintain the fairways and greens. If I remember right Willow Glen was the most challenging as it had the most narrow fairways. You had to be dead on accurate with your tee shot if you want to shoot well. Sycuan also has the best golf carts out there. Built in GPS and it has all the bells and whistles. There are rangers on the course and they are very friendly.

That staff member at the club house are very friendly. They also have a very nice driving range plus a Taylor made fitting facility.

The dining room was also very well kept and staffed with friendly waiters and waitresses. Their breakfast was extremely good. Good place to eat before teeing off.

On to the bad stuff. If you are staying at this resort the reception at the front desk was less than friendly. I can hardly blame them as they are probably bored sitting in this little room waiting for their guests to arrive.

Their rooms are a little out dated. They will have in walls air conditioning units that are loud. Their bathroom is so large and a big waste of space. You have a stand up stall shower. The rest of the bathroom is open space. The walls were pretty thin as well. You can clearly hear your next door guests.

I didn't come here for the room but for the golf. You will not be disappointed for their courses.

As for the casino. The casino is not on the golf resort. It is 3 miles away. This place is full of smoke. Just a word of warning.
