Need a break from your daily life but do not want a long drive? Need to play some golf, hit the spa, have some entertainment? All this and more is just a short drive from almost any area in San Diego. Stayed here several times and always enjoyed it.
When entering the grounds you notice the gate wavers welcoming you. An example of the hospitality displayed by all the workers. Either park in the lots across from the hotel or use the parking structure for direct access to the Casino and Hotel. No shortage of handicapped parking stalls in either area.
Hotel has a AAA Four Diamond rating, well earned as you check in and see your room. Rooms are large, well decorated, comfortable. Free wifi, Keurig coffee maker with coffee and tea cups. Mini refrigerator is not stocked, use as you need. Bathrooms have a shower & tub, plenty of room to move around. Beds had clean white bedding, very comfortable, I slept well. Never experienced any noise from other rooms. For handicapped, they may prefer rooms along the hallway connecting to the Casino and Restaurants. Easy access but lots of hallway traffic.
Casino area is served by a coffee shop, food court, several nice restaurants and buffet. Enough choices for any budget.
I can't say enough about how good the hospitality is. Everyone I met and talked to, from the landscape staff, free drink cart operator, cash cage workers, security personnel, hotel and restroom staff, everyone. Was surprised to hear many have been there for 15, 20 or more years. All said they love working there, love the benefits, management. Some left other jobs to work here. They really make you feel welcome.
I grew up in San Diego during the 60s. Schools back then did not cover the history of our Native Americans. If you have a little extra time, the Barona Cultural Center & Museum is just a short drive to 1095 Barona Rd. I spent about an hour there reading up on their history. So much I did not know. http://www.baronamuseum.org/
Consider a stay here next time you want a break from daily life. You will not be disappointed.
