Out of the way in mountain environment with new hotel and lounge improvements. The multi-level, well lit garage is convenient with elevators. Never stayed in rooms. I loved the Buffet and the Lobster. The place fills up with San Diegans that come just for that reason. I did have great experience with the food and the Chef's making "special" spicy crab legs and Making us feel important.
The Suites are Very Very nice. With other Casino's and Resorts close by , it seems like there are better options. Always crowded in casino, slot service is terrible takes forever.
Comps are not so good, can never get a room even when offered. The club players center is always crowded and understaffed. The slot machines are always freezing up and have to wait a long time for any slot service.
Only saving grace is buffet and BLD restaurant is good. Can you believe that they wanted 40 minutes for a burger and it took 30 minutes for valet to get my car.
Very little staff visible and it appeared as if all restaurants were under staffed to force you to the buffet I've been to most of the local casinos and this one earns last place in my view.

When I was there, they had a generous promotion for new players. I'm skeptical of the slot and table game numbers below, from CasinoCity. The casino seems smaller than that, but maybe it is an optical illusion.
The casino seems very new, spacious, and busy. Every employee I encountered was friendly, helpful, and outgoing. My compliments to the staff. I do not know how generous they are with comps, because I never played enough to warrant asking for anything. It is a crowded place, which seems to get a lot of bus play.
The service spans the range. I had some nice dealers, and some brick walls. On my first visit, the pit boss offered me a free buffet, without being asked. I happily accepted, but the line was too long and slow to justify the time standing in it. Still, any time a casino offers me something without having to be asked, they earn points. My first visit there I almost had the place to myself, and the dealer and floor supervisor were very nice to me.
My second visit the place was crowded. I could see that a bus had just come in, and unloaded a large group of elderly people. The only manned table had a smoker right in the middle, so I didn't play. I questioned a supervisor about the blackjack rules, and he questioned me back about what the Barona was doing. He might have known who I was.
My opinion is you have to hit the Santa Ysabel at the right times, to avoid the tour busses, and you'll likely have a good time. So perhaps my review of Barona is biased. To start with the facts, Barona is a large casino in a scenic area, next to a lake and golf course.
They are best, or tied for best, for the most liberal blackjack, craps, roulette, video poker, and video keno in my surveys. I found the service at Barona was always friendly and professional. I never encountered a long line. There is always a host of promotions going on. One thing you will not find at Barona, except in the steak house, is alcohol. The reason for this is a visit necessitates a drive on a winding two-lane road, which would not go well with intoxicated drivers.
The upstairs has not one, but two, huge bingo rooms, by far the largest I have ever seen. Downstairs are lots of slots and table games.
The casino seems small at first, but there is one room after another. The service I encountered a Sycuan was fine on average. I applaud Sycuan for having a devoted non-smoking wing. You can easily see the casino and outlet mall from the highway. The casino is a busy place, and the gaming tables are generally crowded.
The dealers I had were all fast and efficient, but barely spoke a word to the players. The dealers I had there were all very outgoing and friendly. They were running a t-shirt promotion when I was there, get 21 blackjacks and get a free t-shirt.
Although I'm a sucker for a free t-shirt, I only had time to accrue six stamps on my card. I begged the pit boss to let me play three spots, to earn stamps faster, but she refused me. To get there requires a short drive up a hill, north of the I I didn't go there my recent trip, because I didn't want to fuss with video poker and video keno again. Back in November I only spent a few minutes to get the video poker and video keno pay tables, so it didn't have a chance to interact with anybody.
The facts of the matter are that there is a border control checkpoint in a remote part of San Diego County for west-bound traffic on the I Before the checkpoint cones force traffic in the right lane to merge into the left lane. Long before this point, signs indicate that that the right lane is closed ahead and to merge left.
I think everyone could also agree that the majority do merge early, and back up into a long line, and a minority take advantage of the fast-moving right lane as long as possible. There should also be no debate that at the cones, some of the early mergers refuse to let the late mergers cut in, which can result in heated emotions, or worse, from both camps. Documents by the Minnesota Department of Transportation and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln indicate that the early merge is the safer in light traffic, and the late merge is safer in heavy traffic.
They also indicate that both methods are superior to the conventional, confusing, and dangerous situation where early and late mergers meet. Personally, I was always led to believe that when signs say merge, it means to do so as soon as it is safe to do so. The following resources agree with me on early merging: Here is what I asked, and the response:. On the westbound I-8, there is a border control checkpoint. Signs indicate that traffic should merge left.
Are drivers supposed tomerge ASAP, or wait until the cones force the merge. The same situation appears at road consruction sites everywhere. These signs are in place as a warning of what is ahead. You can merge at anytime as long as it is safe to do so. He answered my question in the May 27, paper. Robert McKenzie, spokesman for the Transportation Department, said according to the uniform traffic control manual put out by the Federal Highway Administration, motorists should merge as soon as it is safe to do so.
But there are those motorists who speed up to the cones because either no one will let them in or they think they can somehow avoid congestion. And congestion is exactly what happens in that case as motorists in the merging lane often have to come to a complete stop before squeezing in, McKenzie said.
Drivers also need to realize these merges are there because it is a construction zone and they need to slow down, McKenzie said. For now I will continue to abide by the social norm of merging early. To do otherwise I think is cutting in line, which is nothing less than stealing the time of the drivers in back.
