“Having stayed at Barona Resort and Casino”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2011

Recently I had the pleasure of staying at the Barona Resort & Casino while I was enjoying a 4 day golf school given by Southern California Golf Schools. I couldnt have been more pleased. The resort, the golf course and casino staff were great, the food and the room was delightful as well. I would highly recommend both the resort as well as the golf school.
Thanks guys for everything.
Stan

My daughter and son-in-law just returned from our third stay and have adopted it as our favorite casino. It is so beautiful, nice clean rooms and friendly. Had a wonderful three days!

I took the orange line trolley from downtown San
diego to El Cajon and a free shuttle bus from there to the Barona on Oct 2. I was delighted from the moment I layed eyes on this establishment. A beautiful Hotel , Casino ,and golf course surrounded by rugged mountains present a picturesque setting.
The hotel rooms are tops for comfort and relaxation, the beds , the bathroom, and decor exquisite and so comfy with nice views of the surrounding area.
The casino is very large and has endless slots and gaming with special give-aways adding to the excitment.
Enough good things cannot be said about the restaurants. Not only do they provide delicous food with many choices, but the prices are very reasonable , and the amount of food served would please a king. The pool and hot tub are perfect to relax in.
I have been to almost every casino in Washington, Idaho, Oregon and Nevada and the Barona ranks up there with the very best. If you like Casino Resorts dont miss the Barona!

Room Tip: They are all good rooms

This little casino lost in the canyons of San Diego is really a special place, I see no reason to travel
all the way to vegas, when a hotel like this is so close to LA.
1. Use your players card - you will get great deals.
2. 90% of the people that work there treat with such kindness.
3. Show me one place in vegas that has people handing out cash & taking care of your food bill, if you play, your there to get lucky, and this place makes your stay, feel like, even if you lose, you win.
Non smoking areas
Excellent Food
Comfortable Beds and well cleaned rooms, with nice peaceful views.
Looking for a getaway, but don't want to go all the way to vegas, this place is in my opinion better.
One place, with fun machines and great service.
A must check out place for fun fun fun !!

Room Tip: Room on the 2000 floor are closer to the casino, less walking involved and great views. I have not s...

Today was my first trip to the Barona Resort & Casino. Living 2 hours away I was really wanting the experience to be great--I wasn't disappointed. The food, staff and "warm and friendly SLOTS" made on first day memorable to say the least. I will recommend this place to friends and family without any reservation. Go and enjoy--I DID.

I have been a member of Club Barona since 1999- I have found this casino to be the best as far as food, accomadations-friendly staff of all casinos in the San Diego area.
Some people can't understand that liquor is not sold on the floor but it makes for a friendly and no problem experience. In all the years I have never seen a fight or disruption on the floor- I would reccomend this Casino over all others in the San Diego Area. Always clean-

This is one of the nicest casino hotels I've stayed in, and for business reasons I've actually stayed in quite a few, mostly in Las Vegas. What stands out most about this hotel, and it applies to the casino as well, is how very nice and truly service-oriented the people who work here are, which makes a stay here very pleasant & stress-free.

The rooms here are surprisingly nice and large. The furnishings aren't the most "modern" looking, but the important things are all taken care of. The bed is very comfortable, the (complimentary) WiFi & wired high speed internet is excellent and truly "high speed", there is a very nice flat panel TV that swivels for easy viewing from the bed or the sofa (and has a nice selection of stations including HBO), and the lighting in the room is more than adequate. There is also a nice bedside alarm clock/CD player that is easy to figure out, with a reliable alarm. Finally, rooms have a mini-fridge and Keurig coffee maker.

The pool looks lovely -- unfortunately, I didn't have the time to try it. There is a spa on the 7th floor, and a business center on the 2nd floor. I never used these services but I did confirm they're there and open.

Restaurants are in the casino, but the cafe is very close to the corridor connecting the hotel to the casino floor and the food there was also surprisingly good. (For those who care about such things, like me, note that pancakes, french toast & waffles come with REAL maple syrup!)
