Room was free that's all, not worth the gas money to get there, so I usually don't go, $30 free coupon still not enough anymore, win some money but little teaser wins nothing big to make me want to return, better off playing free iphone slots with free coins, save your money for your children and grandkids

We stayed at Barona because we had heard good things about it. The hotel is located in Lakeside California about 15 miles east of the 15 freeway. The drive to the hotel takes you through horse ranches and older homes on large properties. Then just when you are about to give up because you think no one would have built...

Easy to find and pretty location, but it is off the beaten path for sure! Self contained resort with multiple choices for food. Customer Service: Could not be better.

It has by far the 2 most important thing's that any resort should have. It's 1) Awsome staff. Not only are they courteous and friendly but very professional. Your needs are met (no matter how small they may seem) in a timely/ efficient manner. They truly make you feel like a person and not a number! The 2) the casino...

This casino would fit in nicely and hold it's own on the Las Vegas strip. This is easily the nicest Indian reservation casino I have visited. This is a player paradise with a very good buffet featuring more variety and better preparation than a mall food court. Plus they have a small food court for folks that don't want "all...

Of the many casinos to choose from in San Diego County, once you're there, Barona is a great place. There is a wide variety of slots for every type of gambler, there are table games, a big poker room, bingo and off track betting. I'm not big on buffets, but it must be great, as the line to get in...
