“Just Plain Wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

Lovely resort, attentive staff, clean, in a beautiful little valley with old olive trees throughout!

Great deals for golfers, nice big rooms. Two small pools.

Two negatives.... bed was a bit too soft, and though we had requested a quiet room, they
put a family with two screaming kids next to us. (we will make our next trip after school
starts!) Alas, there is a no pets policy, so we had to sneak in our traveling kitty!

Room Tip: If you are child free travelers like us, ask for a room away from the pools.

Thank you for your review, we are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Sycuan Resort! We usually receive many compliments on how comfortable the beds are, but if you prefer a super-firm mattress then they might not be exactly what you're looking for. It's true that we do not allow pets, so that we can maintain our strict cleanliness standards and ensure that all of our guests are comfortable. Thank you again for choosing to stay with us, and we hope to see you again soon!

Didn't expect this. The rooms were large and quaint. Great view of the pool and golf course. Not to far from the casino and just minutes away from the San Diego Zoo Seaport Village etc... Will return soon!!!

We had a great view of the golf course from our room on the ground floor. It was nice and restful. Rooms were a good size and the bathroom was huge! Loved the double sink and separate shower. Might be better to get a room on the 2nd floor - at ground level, I could hear the couple above me pacing back and forth but overall, this was a pleasant stay.

A little outdated but nicely kept - quiet, relaxing, just outside San Diego and not too far from LA. Good little getaway and great value for the price. Pools are refreshing and the restaurant food is decent, though the service is a little slow...but that's what you're there for, right? I'm happy with my visit and would consider again.

Room Tip: Pretty quiet property so seems you can't go wrong no matter what room you're in.

We had to spend one evening in El Cajon and this was the closest place. The room was surprisingly nice, actually large, with a balcony overlooking a putting green. The bathroom was very nice-sized as well. The rooms face the golf course, so all you hear at night is muffled traffic; in the morning you may hear golfers. Both the reservation staff and the front desk people were very pleasant.

The place would be perfect If it wasn't for 1) the loud in-wall air conditioning and 2) the fact that you can only get two queen beds (no kings are available unless you get a suite).

If you are ever unfortunate enough to have to spend a night in El Cajon this is the place.

Room Tip: Top floor.

Our golfing group of 10 this year had another fabulous time using Sycuan G&TR as our base. In last year's review I mentioned the need for free WiFi. I'm really pleased to say Sycuan Management sincerely reads and responds to Tripadvisor comments. This year - free WiFI! And we're not talking about some cheap installation; I ran a speedtest on my iPad and clocked a serious 22 Mps. Worked great videostreaming with my Slingbox app.
Other improvements noted were the large HD TV screens in the lounge, the golf range, and on the courses. Compared to the other courses we played this week (La Costa, Steele Canyon, Barona), the Sycuan courses were in superb shape.
As always, the food and staff in the dining room were terrific. Besides the Wednesday Pasta nite, we also enjoyed Friday's Steak & Potato nite. We'd like to suggest bringing back the Monday Lobster nite!
Our week long stay includes a golf staycation package when we can play both courses on one day. We also received a golf clinic. Besides offering some valuable tips, golf director Clint made the short game lessons fun and enjoyable.
Plans are underway for our 2015 trip.

My high school reunion was hosted here so I booked a room rather than drive back to my parents' home.
The front desk staff were very courteous, very friendly, and quite helpful.
I was a little apprehensive because the exterior, while well maintained, doesn't look too different from when I was a kid.
What a pleasant surprise!
My first floor corner room was gorgeous, very spacious, clean, and had a great view! I don't often take a photo of hotel rooms but I did this time. It was such a nice room.
I compared my photos to their website and judging by the website pictures, I guess I had a one bedroom suite. I'm surprised, given the low rate I paid. So I'd say it is an even better value!
I didn't golf, but I heard from some of my former classmates say they had a really good time on the course.

Room Tip: The corner rooms/one bedroom suites have great light and nice views!
