“It's nice hotel but way too calm if your in your 20's or early 30's”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

The resort is nice and the casino is kinda small. First of all the pool is gorgeous but is not heated and does not have a bar and the music is way too quiet and there is no waitress's walking around. I think they are totally missing the boat on the pool ,they need a live DJ , Bar by the pool and some waiter and waitress . You have to go to the phone by the bathroom to order a drink soo lame. If you are older and want to relax and just look at the pool then that is fine. The pool was cold as ice. How the hell can you have such a nice looking pool and not be heated. I am all about laying at the pool and getting pampered and that was not the case. They could also use someone cooking some food on the grill and selling food by the pool as well. The rooms are very nice but do not have ironing boards. The casino could use some night life as well they only have some live music which is pretty much just for older people. I don't I will stay here again but the buffet is delicious .

Room Tip: Get a room on the 8th floor because of the vaulted ceilings.

I must say this is the best hotel casino in San Diego county by far. The room was very clean and spacious, separate tub,shower and toilet and bed was very comfortable. The lobster buffet is of high quality foods. You will get a VIP pass at the buffet when you check in if you want to eat there. This hotel has large non smoking casino. The nice pool is overlooking hills but not heated? No kids allowed on this property by the way.
Another plus at this hotel is the free breakfast to all hotel guests, there were coffee, juices, fresh fruits, breakfast burritos, muffins, doughnuts, bagels and more (comp. newspaper while eating your breakfast)...
If you are looking for a perfect casino/hotel getaway then stop right here because this is the place to be....

We ended a much needed weeks vacation at this hotel/casino and it was the icing on the cake!

A beautiful location, huge room which is nicely appointed, and then the penny slots to play all night. The hotel front desk staff was very informative and welcoming and can also sign you up for their players club right at the front desk. The view from the floor to ceiling windows are expansive and there is a seperate shower (fits two) and soaking tub.

We opted not to do the buffet but went to their top end restaurant instead....(see seperate review). After dinner we hit the floor and had a fun night selecting different machines to play....six hours went by in a flash! They do serve cocktails on the floor (prices are reasonable) and free soft drink stations are scattered around the perimeter of the gaming floor. There are also table games that seemed to be very popular.

There is a breakfast buffet served to hotel guests at the pool deck....fresh fruit, pastries, cereal, juice, coffe/tea, and a hot dish...all can be taken back to your room if there is no room at the pool side tables.

Self parking was easy, there is complimentary valet (for all casino guests so it can be BUSY).

The hotel lobby can be accessed by anyone but the hotel itself can only be entered with your room key so it is quiet!

I suggest a two night stay so you can enjoy the pool area and sleeping in!

Room Tip: there are lots of tour type busses bringing in the penny gamblers during thee day so check in after...

ANYONE who has an opportunity to stay at the Valley View Casino Hotel should...It is absolutely wonderful. The only thing my family and I like better than staying in one of the rooms, while eating the wonderful variety of restaurants (especially the buffet!) is staying in one of the Suites!!!! I do mean Sweet, Suite!!!! The people are best part of staying there, but the rooms and the slots run a close second (no thirds).... I always enjoy staying and playing at the Valley View Casino (and now) Hotel....

Rooms are damned nice but there's something odd about this place... All the waitresses have smiles on their faces... I don't think I've ever seen that on one before. Rather pricey but a clean upscale place. We enjoyed our stay. Certainly recommended.

My friend and I just got back from a night at the Valley View Casino Hotel. Friendly, top notch service from check in to check out. The lobster/crab leg buffet was excellent. The hotel was beautiful and the rooms were well appointed. The pool/hot tub area was also beautiful however, we did not take advantage of it because we were too busy gambling. I played slots for hours on end and I never went over my budget and I was constantly winning. They players card is a great value, I have only been to this casion once before but I had accumulated 2 free dinner buffets on top of the one I had received when I first signed up and I received a nice amount of comp play. They have a huge non-smoking area of the casino as well. They had great live music, friendly bar tenders...overall it was just a great experience, this hotel/casino is by far my new favorite ;) The ONLY draw back is the winding road that you must drive up to the location, I would not attempt to drive it at night. So with that inmind just drive carefully and enjoy your trip...Good Luck $$$

Room Tip: We stayed on the 6th floor room 611 Queen deluxe, nice and spacious with mountain & pool view.
