Went to Barona for my birthday with my husband and my brother's family (total of 7). Spent time in the casino. Nice large non-smoking area. Since it was our first time, they actually came up personally to welcome us as we were playing. There is an ice cream vendor in the food court that is to die for. LARGE scoop...

It is always a good time here! We came in from a week of post holiday SoCal traveling to relax. Friendly staff, little chocolates, and I like the in-room Keurig machine. I love the food court. Especially, the burritos. Plus, winning makes it even sweeter! Don't forget to ask for your comps (free play, points, money for food court)!!! If...

We mostly ate, shopped and gambled during our visit. We didn't stay at the hotel this time, but have before and liked it very much. The penny games payed off for us this day. Definitely get the players card before you start gambling. It saved us a bit on the room when we stayed here. Theres a lot of property...

We didn't stay at the hotel, but certainly would consider it! It is a beautiful property, to be sure. Just stopped in to gamble a bit ... had a quick lunch at the Food Court Noodle House ... and spent some time at the slot machines. The lunch was fantastic ... got the daily special of Cashew Chicken, which came...

I don't go to the casino. But I went to the buffet and ate, it is very nice. The rooms are nice which has space and comfy beds. The service is nice. I really enjoyed the hotel as it keeps me happy, the pool is very nice. Not to crowded during the summer

Took 5 couples to Barona for a 4 day golf tournament. Guys golfed in the AM through lunch. Ladies were on their own. If you're into gambling and smoke filled casino, then you're safe. If you are looking for something else to do - you're pretty remote and without a lot of options unless you are willing to travel 25+...

Recently, a girlfriend and I spent a week at the Barona Valley Ranch Resort and Casino in Lakeside, CA. The experience was not only relaxing and pleasingly upbeat; it was memeorable. The location of the ranch is close to much of what you might want to see and do in the San Diego area, and yet remote enough to only...

We went to Barona for my in-laws 50th anniversary. The dinner at the steakhouse was horrible. We arrived at our reservation time, 6:30, and we're seating promptly and then ignored for about half an hour. Finally got our drink order then another 45 minute wait for our food. When the food did arrive the guest of honor said his prime...

I'm not a gambler, so I can't speak for the 'casino' part, but the buffet was OUT OF THIS WORLD! My Aunt & cousin who are San Diegans took us here during our vacation.
