I can't say enough about how well we were treated on our first visit. They gave us buttons to wear which showed we were first timers and we were approached several times by the staff on the casino floor to wish us a good time and asked if there was anything they could do for us. We even received free...

We always have to stay at this place when we go to San Diego. Room is nice & big w/lots of freebees (coffee/tea maker, water bottles, & wifi.) They also have a small fridge and a safe for all your winnings ;). When it comes to the casino, they are the most lay back tables ever. Pay out is nice...

Nice gaming spot. Beautiful surrounding set in mountains on a Indian Reservation. Free valet parking, greeted at door with drinks. We went in the early afternoon and the slots were busy but the tables were easily accessible.

My husband is here for a golfing event, and I was hesitant to visit after reading some bad reviews, but I'm so happy to have had the pleasure of, what I'll just call, the Barona experience. Where else do you walk thru the door to be personally welcomed and offered a glass of cold water or lemonade? Not only is...

I love this casino. I've been coming here since the weekend I turned 18. 8 years later, I still visit regularly. YES, it's a dry casino but it's still alot of fun. It's one of the cleanest around. The smoking section doesn't overwhelm you with smoke and there's plenty to do and plenty of places to eat. They greet you...
