“Been back two weekends in a row!!!!”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

Oh my G!!!! Took my sister here for the "Mixed Double" package which included the 1 hour spa massage and the hotel room and it was so awesome I took my husband here the next weekend!!! The beds engulf you to dreamland! The showers are awesome and consistent hot water no matter what time of the day it is. You are taken to the casino via a shuttle whenever you need to go. We also tried the breakfast at the hotel restaurant and the Belgian waffle was PERFECT!!!! Already looking forward to our next weekend at Sycuan Resort. My only request is to look into changing that 400pm check in time, wow it is a long wait...

Room Tip: The check in time is at 400pm, plan to stay at the casino throughout the day until checking in, also...

Beautifully situated about 30 minutes east of San Diego. The rooms are nicely appointed, spacious with a really large bathroom. The only negative about the room was the small amount of drawer space for 2 people. My wife and I stayed for 5 nights mainly for the golf. The courses and really nice and in great condition. The entire staff at the hotel, restaurant and golf were all super friendly. The property is about a 10 minute drive to El Cajon. No need to go there for breakfast. The restaurant at the golf course serves fantastic food. We went there each morning for breakfast. Great menu choices and all delicious. Had dinner there 1 evening. My wife had the sea bass which she loved and I had a really good steak cooked perfectly. Went to the casino a few nights, a short drive away. The hotel has a shuttle if you prefer not driving. The casino does have a non smoking room. The hotel does not charge for interest access. If we were in the area we would definitely return to this property.

Room Tip: Upper floor if you don't mind steps.

We went here for a golf getaway over the weekend. We were a group all with separate rooms and a party at the end.

the Golf Course: Wonderful. Scenic. Challenging but forgiving. Well kept. Drink service was frequent and Josette made an awesome bloody mary.

the Bar: Good mix of drinks. Simple but tasty menu.

the Restaurant: Clean. Great Variety on the menu. I had "Joe's special" eggs for breakfast and it was the perfect breakfast after a night of partying.

the Rooms: Spacious. Overlooked the golf course. clean. Comfortable beds AND pillows. Large desk. Cozy linens (towels and sheets).

All of the staff was friendly and accommodating. The food was excellent. The shuttle between the resort and the casino was frequent and it was constantly picking up and dropping off. Although we never made it to the casino, our next visit here will have us going.

If i had to choose a weekend getaway to Sycuan or Palm Springs, Sycuan wins hands down.

Our son and new daughter-in-law were married in an outdoor ceremony at their gazebo site. It was lovely, grass and flowers were well tended. The staff was very helpful with the planning, rehearsal and actual event. We were impressed with their service of drinks/snacks while wedding party was having photos taken post-ceremony--nice idea. The reception room was comfortable, the food was delicious and plentiful...and again, the staff were wonderful. The only noticeable glitch was the sound system during the ceremony. We couldn't hear a portion of the ceremony.

My wife and I enjoy traveling to golf resorts throughout California. Sycuan Resort was on the list. We arrived and were pleased with our accommodations. Our room faced the golf course and overlooking the pool. The views were blocked by mature trees, but private. A brief walk to the Pro Shop and restaurant. (or shuttle) The buildings were old, (apartment style) but refurbished and clean. The interior was awesome, designer appointments throughout. The bed and bedding was a "10". The carpet, drapes, tile, bath and furnishings were upscale, high quality, and felt new. AC was good and very efficient. The Staff was excellent. From the front desk (Jerry) to the Pro Shop (Jeremy) to Starter (John). The food at the restaurant was excellent, and reasonable in price. We ate breakfast and dinner, and again the food was above good. Obviously, a great Chief! Armando, the Manager was very attentive, and made sure everything was perfect...
We played both, Oak Glen and Willow Glen courses. Oak Glen was a complete disappointment. (don't waste your time) Felt more like a poor budget Muni. (and I'm not a Country Club Snob) However, the Willow Glen course was a pleasant experience. Large oak trees, lakes, uphill and downhill fairways. Nice mature - old style track. The Marshall (Rudy) helped us play-through a ridiculously slow group in front of us. (two holes behind - without a clue and an attitude) but the Marshall handled it with perfect professional kindness... and turned a 6 hour round in 90+ degree heat - into a 4.5 hour pleasant day of golf and sunshine.
Thx again Rudy!
All and all, a great weekend. It gets really hot in east El Cajon, so pick your month wisely...

Hello we are from Phoenix, AZ, since it was fall, the staycation was up in price. My wife found this resort, we choose the spa package and it is fantastic. The pools, heated and not many people, the staff excellent, if you read any of my other reviews I believe this is my first excellent. They did not nickle and Dime us, Quiet at night, we never made it to San Diego, so that says a lot. If golf is your thing this would be an excellent choice. The restuarants are excellent, Just stay a few days its worth it.

Room Tip: Upgrade to the 1 bedroom. Look at and combine packages, we combined spa with breakfast. Un pack an...
