Starting off-This was our first time visiting this casino, I was working in the San Diego area and on Fathers Day my wife and I tried to find a restaurant in the old town district, when we couldn't find any parking we thought to look up a casino since they always have a restaurant. Somehow my wife chose this one...

Took spouse to Barona for the first time in May. Rooms are very nice, beds are a little soft so you can request a bed board which helps a lot. My wife had a wonderful massage treatment at the spa that included her neck, shoulders legs & a head massage that she loved, while I played golf at the challenging...

Oh, it HURTs to give this place just 3 bubbles. The people are SO friendly, and they try so hard! I got free overnight RV parking and there are beautiful places to walk my dog. So great, But... what do you come to a casino for? I'm normally reasonably lucky. I played for quite a while, $100, not one hit....

We live here in San Diego and have been to most of the local casinos (as well as others in Las Vegas), so we were anxious to visit Barona. At the advice of friends and family, my husband decided we could stay there for the night for his birthday. I went directly to the website to make our reservations and...

All of the good casino tables including the poker based ones such as Let it Ride and Texas Hold'em Ultimate. Couldn't get used to no beer allowed. Even had to sign off for a Redbull. They should ban the smoking and get their liquor license. California based craps and roulette using cards. Staff is cheerful.

I have family in san diego and I come visit every week from riverside county but I'm very disappointed in barona how tight the slots are getting to the point where I've dropped $700 in a machine without it giving a bonus. And when you finally get one it just spins and don't pay back. Don't know if it has...

When visiting Barona to play in the casino or golf the question arises as to where to eat. The oak steakhouse is a great restaurant with modern décor and excellent food. Their filet minion can be cut with a fork and lamb chops are great. Don't forget the desserts sampler, a great deal. Appetizers, entrée and dessert will set you...

Hi, I stayed here for a few months on and off in 2015. It was an absolute pleasure. The room that I stayed in was really comfortable with everything that I needed. There was so much choice to eat in the food hall and the buffets were out of this world. The setting is very remote which makes this a...
