After eating at the buffet, we stopped and played the slots for a short while. Nice selection of slots. $10 lasted about an hour. Overall, the casino is clean and the staff friendly.

This was our first stay at Viejas. We went to celebrate our wedding anniversary and my birthday. The hotel and casino staff were very professional and welcoming! They signed a b-day and anniversary card and had a bellman bring them to our room! Nice touch! After a room change due to excessive HVAC noise our new room was clean and... More

We stayed here for a wedding and were disappointed with the whole package. I would give this hotel at one except that the Indian grounds and surrounding areas are beautiful, and I have a lot of respect for Tribal lands. Otherwise, I was shocked by the value. We paid almost $300 a night to stay here and our room was... More

Not much winning was going on whenever I went, about 5 times. Most popular was the Bingo games with Seniors.

worth going back to often. truly enjoyed every visit i had here😊 lots of slot machines to choose from and you get to enjoy playing. pay outs are good, unlike the false advertising of the "loosest slot" of Barona. Viejas advertises through experience. keep up the good work and hopefully the slots don't tighten up somewhere along the way.

I did not win. I like the older slots but the one I wanted you had to play $1.00. I don't know the name of the slot machine I played, I did not understand how it worked.

I find it always odd to stay in a casino, but seeing that I was between San Diego on my way to Calexico I tried this place which had great pictures, good descriptions and very reasonable prices. I was presently surprised and pleased with my stay. The entire complex is flawlessly maintained, well appointed and has great services. I am... More

I was there 2 full days for a workshop and I liked it. 2 lunches both delicious. I just regretted not to have enough time for swimming pool and buffet.

We just stopped in here to have some fun at the slots at the casino, and wow, what a nice place! Very clean and easy to navigate and lots of slots and gaming tables! The security guard at the entrance, Griseida ("CC"), was so welcoming and friendly and she really went out of her way to tell us all about... More
