Sycuan Casino and Resort is a lovely place for a staycation. Everything is beautifully put together. The hotel is seemingly new. I learned that this casino and resort opened March 2019. The staff were all very friendly, welcoming and accommodating. We could have spent all day at the pool. There’s a lazy river but it doesn’t make much sense without the floats... we enjoyed the pool bar food and drink menu. Our other food experiences were not so great. Our dinner at the Viewpoint was okay: my calamari made it to our table cold, I had to send it back to the kitchen- when it was returned to me it was super greasy and it appeared to have been fried using cornmeal- it didn’t look good. Our breakfast at the Rank and File was the worst breakfast ever- the hash browns had been fried from frozen potatoes- our fried eggs came out rubbery, our bacon was the precooked kind but somehow over cooked- the worst breakfast ever. My gambling experience was cool- though no free alcohol beverage service. I enjoyed ultimate Texas holdem and roulette, the 15 dollar buy-in was a killer. I played bingo twice- you get to play 20 games for a low price. It was my first time playing bingo- and I will be back. The hotel had live music. The smoking areas of the hotel were not as bad as I thought they would be. Parking was free and they offer a shuttle service. Golf carts pick you up from your car and transfer you to the lobby door. Overall, it was a nice stay.

Room service seemed to be nonexistent. Had to call for service on the first day and there was no service the second day at 4PM when we checked out. There was an annoying noise in the early morning, not loud by annoying. Sounded like it might have been a pump. Most of the restaurants were closed so dining was very limited. Other than that enjoyed our stay. Staff was great, room was clean, nicely appointed and comfortable
