First off, I love the location of Barona Casino, just 30-40 mins outside of San Diego. It is by far one of the nicer Casino Hotels in the SD area.

Barona is a wonderful place to stay. My husband golfed and loved the course. I relaxed in the very large and well-appointed room, and then visited the casino. All staff members throughout the resort are so friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend this place and hope to go again soon.

The staff at both the hotel and casino are awesome. The management does need to consider enlarging the non smoker area of the...

The casino is very large with thousands of slot machines, off track betting, poker, and plenty of tables.
