Checked in Saturday night June 8th, 2013. Valet was eager to help, but we self parked and bell hop was speedy! The rooms are nice. For coffee drinkers these rooms have a Keurig.

Barona is a fun place to go if you just want to get away and be in an environment that feels like you are in the country. They have a beautiful rose garden, lovely places to walk, great food, nice rooms, and gambling. We love eating in the Steakhouse, it is truly wonderful.

I usually chat with my husband over a cup coffee at the restaurant called Café Sage, then read my e-books while he goes playing cards or golf. The hotel room when we stay is tastefully decorated, well stocked with coffee...

Our wonderful view was of the golf course and lake. The staff is helpful, and willing to assist. Wi-fi worked well. There is a...

Very disappointing, especially at the price of $26.99 ($21.59 with Casino card). Lots of choices but the quality is lacking. More attention should be focused on the cooking phase, so as to insure food is not over/under done. One of the items I choose was "bay shrimp" and found them to be mushy. Green beans were undercooked. The coconut shrimp...
