I have stay in the room and they are nice, however, the smoke on busy day can be bad. you must walk through smoking to get to none smoking then your room. I have gotten sick from the massive smoke from cigarette, cigars, and all other smoking device. I wear a mask to save my lungs.

Received two complimentary nights at Barona, even though I live in TX. Used those nights while visiting San Diego. Every staff member, from bellman, to front desk , to casino staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. It was a wonderful stay and I even won money. I'll be back.

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... More

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... More
