Barona Resort & Casino
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Lakeside
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 June 2017

The Barona Resort and Casino in Lakeside ,California is one of our favorite golfing, gaming, and dining locations. The staff is super friendly. The Golf Course is a pleasure to play with great vista at every hole. The casino is the best. A very large non-smoking section of the casino allows one to play slots without a person smoking in sight or smell. Several excellent restaurants are available on property. Do yourself a favor and stay at the Barona Resort and Casino near San Diego.

Room Tip: Ask for a golf course view room. Avoid the one smoking floor.

We have gone the last two years for a golf outing with friends. There is no downside to Barona. The golf course is amazing and the pro shop staff are very helpful. We ate at the Steakhouse all three nights and all the meals were the best. The casino is fun and all the help are very friendly. We took morning walks around the resort and it's all very groomed. We met a grounds keeper who took care of the fish pond last year but the moved him this year so it took some time to find him. Ray knows the area and enjoys taking care of the grounds, we hope to see him by the fish pond again next year.

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor close to the exit to the golf course which had a patio that looked over...

What a fun night!
Great room with a view!
Wonderful buffet! We had dinner buffet and breakfast buffet too!

I'd love to have some alcohol served but you can go to your room and make your own.

Having 2 places you can check in is a bit confusing. More signs are needed to explain.

Barona resort was not only a beautiful and clean place, but the most friendly casino I've ever stayed at. Every single employee treated us like family! The atmosphere was pleasant. The food was good. The views were beautiful.

Room Tip: All rooms have great views!

Everyone provides such excellent service. As soon as we drive on the property the guard gate is welcoming us with a smile and wave. It is really sincere today! We have been here a lot and they are very sincere. We use the valet and porter services. Jeff is so great and handles are luggage expertly. He provides us with water, knows our names and welcomes us Our Suite was great as usually when we visited a few weeks ago. Our VIP Hosts-George and Cori are excellent hosts and took care of our needs. We had fun and plan to celebrate my husbands birthday there.

Room Tip: Golf -Lake view is best! Steakhouse is a must do!
