Shylee Fletcher

As far as weddings go; Joyce, Mary Lou, & the San Vicente Golf Resort staff were incredible! Their hard-work, generosity, patience, & kindness gave us the most perfect wedding we could imagine! Everything was so easy, beautiful and stress-free! Not only is the venue gorgeous and affordable, it includes the ceremony, reception, delicious food, & the sweetest/most helpful coordinators (Joyce & Mary Lou)! Us & our guest had a wonderful time and we cannot speak highly enough about everyone who helped made that happen


Can’t give a fair review because apparently these fairways are Bermuda grass And allegedly Bermuda grass is “dormant” in the winter months which basically means it’s dead So the pictures show green beautiful fairways and when we arrived it was hard brown grass

If what they say is accurate the summer months would be great for this course Bunkers and greens recently renovated Greens are very challenging Good service (didn’t see a cart girl though) Would try again in the summer to see if this would become a 5 star course But for February it is not

grace storm

Our prior plans fell through and we ended up here! It was nothing but amazing for me and the four other ladies I was with The rooms were fantastic, the two places we ate/drank was very reasonable and very delicious! The front desk staff was so gracious and heated up all of our leftovers for us We will definitely be visiting this place again

Thank you so much!!!!!

Tareq Barakzoy

This is a very elegant yet tired and dated facility The rooms are spacious yet the finishes need immediate updating The staff were friendly and helpful

Unfortunately they might have been misinformed about renovations We were told that we will be at the newly renovated garden rooms, but nothing looked renovated except maybe a new wall socket with usb outletThe patio overlooking the fairway green is beautiful The drinks were good We also attended a wedding and that was in a beautiful setting

Alice Ettinger

This is a beautiful setting with magnificent gardens, golf course, and pools The rooms are spacious, but are in need of updating Air conditioning is in desperate need of replacement

According to staff, renovations will begin in May Maid service left much to be desired, although when they finally arrived, they did a nice jobThe desk and bell service were more than accommodating and most pleasant and always cheerful

Lou Webb

As a “local” we would visit once or twice a month to enjoy happy hour on the patio Decent menu and discount, fantastic location and views The staff was also first rate

Then out of nowhere, some brain surgeon, decided that happy hour was only allowed inside The thought that it would be better to have a patio full of empty tables instead of a 3/4 full is some next level math Guess we won’t be visiting for a while

Feedback From Real Customers


From check in with Leanne and all the wonderful information she gave us I could tell it was a well run Diamond location We were provided hiking locations, wineries, restaurants and even town directions as well as resort amenities and activities The room we reserved was spacious and well appointed and you can clearly see pride in maintenance and managing of this wonderful gem nestled in the hills of Ramona

The surroundings are gorgeous and the peaceful slice of heaven quite attractive for those looking for a quality location that has nice rooms, a gym, activities, pool, racquet and pickle ball courts, video check out and so much more Thanks to the staff at this location for providing a quality experience and also sharing the information and amenities that made a bid difference Also a note that Francisco and the maintenance/cleaning crew are amazing and wonderful peopleHighly recommended

Miss Valerie

We checked in this afternoonThe studio is such a great place You get your own kitchen (with all you need to cook, pan, plates, wine opener, dishwasher), living room (with fireplace) and bedroom

The bed is super comfortable and the bedroom very cute with its own TVThe bathroom is basicThe pool is heated at 82F and the hot tube perfectly hot We swam and enjoyed the hot tube in the eveningYou can do tennis, basketball 🏀 They have treasure hunts for kidsAnd the beat part the parking is freeSo really this place is awesome when you need a getaway from the world and LA

Mad Habitz

If we would have stayed a whole week or done any of the activities then we would probably give it a five star rating We only stayed for a couple of days and didn’t get to spend much time at the resort As for the room / condo/unit it was large spacious and very well accommodated but not the cleanest

There was dust under the bed and in some other areas which accounts for the docked star But I have recommended to friends and family that this is a great place to stay and very kid friendly as there is lots of activities on their list Honestly I can’t wait to stay here again due to his secluded location from the city and reminds me of home up north

Andrew Weitz

Hotel overall was nice It seemed well-maintained which was a good first sign when checking My room was clean and quiet

Air conditioning worked great Pool was not too crowded and the hot tub was great Parking is $15 to be in the garage or you can park on the surface lot for free It’s a good central location to the freeway and grocery stores and coffee shops you may want to use when traveling I did not use room service or make any room requests, so I can’t rate those experiences Would stay here again if I’m ever in Poway

Raul Martinez

I want to educate people of my recent stay at this facility which was like a motel at a truck stop When I made my reservation I should have been informed the facility was being remodeled The vulgar/foul mouth Construction workers who were working on the facility and staying there were frequenting the bar, flirting with the young female bartender who was enjoying the attention, near the dining area where my wife, and I sat trying to have a meal after a long trip

The atmosphere and hotel was unacceptable There was debris, and dust throughout the hallways Hallways and our room smelled of freshly painted doors and rooms which could be affected someone with respiratory issues The only available elevator had nasty and dusty padding blankets hanging within it possibly to protect the interior The hallways had debris and trash in it Our room was not cleaned nor any fresh towels given to us, until I called to ask for some, which came about an hour later I voiced my concerns, and a representative offered me some type of bonus points No thanks I am never staying at a Hilton in the future especially there

Claudia C

We went for a one night stay Saturday through Sunday The room was clean and had a microwave, mini fridge, keureg and hair dryerFor $200/night we got a 3rd story room facing the dumpster because they are remodeling

Less than thrilled with that Also, the restaurant and room service are closed during the remodeling In addition the only elevator you can use is covered in construction blankets that hold all the dirt being ejected during the remodel Not great for anyone with asthma or other respiratory issuesParking is NOT included in your room price It’s an additional $15/night to park your carOverall it seemed to be Hilton prices with a Motel 6 experience

Nice quiet Resort Resort Our two bed apartment was well equipped very clean and quite large

We also had an electric BBQ on the patio Two very large bedrooms with a family bathroom and one en-suite A short drive to San Diego but a great place for exploring This resort does stand out even though there may not be the same level of facilities that larger resorts have The staff are pleasant friendly and very helpful

Saharrah Santiago

I am here with my family trying to enjoy the holiday with my children My suite is infested with ants I have reported this issue 3xs

I recorded a video, because it’s like 20, 30 ants There was hair in the tub and on the toilet seat I took pics The front desk staff is rude and dismissive to me They have not offered to change my suite, and I’m very disappointed in my stay here 😔Update: The manager, Chris, is unbelievable He told me to put Windex on the ants, and left a bottle of Windex outside of my suite The front desk agents, DJ and Sienna, were very unprofessional towards me when I checked in I contacted the agent that booked this suite for me (who has incredible customer service skills) they tried to resolve the issue with this room We are still waiting to change rooms It has been over 4 hours DJ told me that the AC is out in the other suite that they were going to change my family and I into I am pregnant and high risk and this is highly unacceptable Everyone does not receive the same level of customer service here

For the money, I don’t believe you’ll find a better place to stay The rooms have everything you need They are super clean, smell nice, well kept and attractive

Everything works The fridge is large Water pressure is stunning good! The bed is huge and comfortable as well For the small size rooms, they are nonetheless packed with all the basics without feeling cramped The woman who checked me is was very nice too! All around very very good service I recommend this place to stay Most times at this price I don’t But this Motel is a real exception If you need an affordable place to stay mostly just to sleep then be on your way, then book You’ll be happy 😊

Stephanie Chukel

This was a gem! My son and I were in San Diego for soccer Most of the team stayed at a brand name hotel for three times the price I booked this one based on reviews and being 7 miles from the team hotel

It did not disappoint The room was clean and updated We had a small table, desk, fridge and microwave King bed was comfortable The pool was available (unlike the expensive team hotel) The day and evening staff were friendly as well There is no breakfast (COVID) so that is where the fridge and microwave came in handy Thank you for providing a great place at a very reasonable price Budget for the win!

Joanne Titanic

My single room was so tiny Everything was clean and neat but minimal Nice to have a microwave and mini-refrigerator

The bed appeared to be okay but I found it too high and uncomfortable Was up most of the night from all the sounds around the room The staff was extremely nice They were the best part of the stay The television was off to the side of the room so had to angle myself in bed to view it The bathroom was directly in front of the bed ( remember TINY ROOM) so they had no choice but to put the TV on the only wall If the room was a bit bigger I would definitely return Hopefully they have bigger rooms elsewhere in the place Oh yeah, bring your own cups Only 2 tiny plastic cups No cup in bathroom A really mixed review Sorry

There are some very beautiful views from many if not most of the spots We originally booked site 14 but all the hookups were on the wrong side and the layout just didn’t make sense to us so we switched to site 23 The general area with the fire pit, picnic table and area to hang out is a little ways down and away from where the hook ups are which wasn’t a big deal but different than we are used to

On our second day there, we started seeing random ants in our camper and by the third day, we had full on trails of ants all over, by all 3 of our beds, in the bathroom, the kitchen I mean they were EVERYWHERE! We’ve never had this problem in all the times we’ve gone out before

Patricia Messer-Perry

The Rangers are kind and helpful🤠👍😎Many awesome camp sites!!! Not to many for large Class A or C RV’s They have beautiful sites for tent camping or parking with a small rv!! However some sites parking is not flat at all

I have a self contained Van and enjoyed sp#39 & 27 both perfectly flat and tree shaded I enjoyed nice flat site #29 right across from a bathroom, but it was all day sun I have to give a shout out to their awesome CAMPHOST Tiffany(sp#1) She made site suggestions and nailed them!! She gave me her phone# (just in case) and checked on me!! I would let her know when I was in camp etc😎👍 I had a lake view site #29 out my back doors😍 It is quite the haul up the steep road to get to Dixon Lake (no swimming or outside boats) fishing and renting their boats AMAZING grassy day use spots with covered table areas, bbq pits and playgrounds The camp ground is hilly, but that makes the tuck away tent sites perfect There is a concession stand (nice) It is where you check in for camping, the staff are really nice!! Shout out to Kate for being kind and going the extra mile to change my site💖 I will definately return!!

Honestly it’s exactly as expected If you’re expecting a 5 star hotel you’ll be disappointed I’m moving across the country with my 2 pets and I’m staying here for a few days

The room is clean and nice the staff is nice and I’ve had no issues They allow pets with an extra fee (expected) and my cats like the room I’d stay here again Also the restaurant next door is good

Keith Kubik

Room was terrible Sheets had a “circle” ring stain… holes in the wall… Looked like someone took a hammer to the bathroom door…

Actual gang graffiti painted on the wall inside the room… Woodwork scared or missing, walls half painted… Also every night, even to midnight… people were loitering about… Sitting on the curb,… standing outside hanging out… for no particular reason that I could see… Also, of the four nights we pre-paid for, only once was the room cleaned or bed made… but we did came back one night and the TV was on… But nothing cleaned… no new towels unless we went to the front window and asked… We took our luggage with us everyday because it seemed risky to leave it in the room Rating was 37 stars… Not sure how that happened…

Jaquelin Oj

Room was falling apart it was so disgustingit smelled so much like cigarettes when I booked no smokingSheets were stained && rippedThis by far has been my worst experience here in CaliforniaI feel lied to and robbed!!I booked 2 Rooms for 250$++ eachSince I can’t cancel my booking they will just steal my money!!They are renovating and have garbage everywhere outside !! There’s no way I stayed I didn’t feel safe or comfortable!!BEWARE!!!LOOK AT RATINGS PICTURES ON BOOKING ARE NOTHING LIKE IN PERSON!! Stop by the property look around this place is scary!!

Summer Sandberg

I have never been up here although I am a San Diego native Went up with a group of friends and really enjoyed ourselves! The rooms were really really nice, and the pool was calm on the adults only side of the willows resortAll the bartenders in the casino were extremely friendly and we also ate at The upscale restaurant inside

I’ll review that separately Will definitely go back!

Sam Barboo

We have been several times for day visits and also stayed overnight in the hotel once All Casino staff have been pleasant and friendly Hotel staff were likewise professional and courteous

The lines/wait times for the restaurants are a bit long but the food and service are fine Of the casinos in southern San Diego I enjoy it the most The outlet mall is, however, underwhelming as far as outlets go All in all, if you are looking to have a fun time handing your money over to a casino (because, let’s be honest, almost everyone loses more than they ever win), then this is a recommended place to do exactly that with a smile

Alondra Gonzalez

Oh my goodness! I stayed three nights here & I had the most amazing stay! I had lost my Louis Vuitton bracelet on Saturday and found out when I got home Sunday I called and filled out a form on their website and they found it the next day & was able to pick up with no problem (also has shipping arrangements) The hospitality was amazing and the food was so good! The pool was refreshing

I highly recommend staying here

Nice quiet, shady RV park Some spots looked challenging to back into but there are some pull thru’s Leveling blocks will come in handy

Park has lots of elevation changes Some of the tent spots looked great Pool is nice Fishing pond Dump station is very challenging to get lined up to I recommend you take them up on the pump out service

Erik P

Ended up coming here to getaway with my kids and meet up with some friendsResort park – Small little resort to come to but does the job for a getaway They do have a small pond for people to chill and relax and experience fishing, a tiny play area for kids, pool that’s not heated, and area to play horseshoes

Restroom – Could use remodeling but kept up and functionalRv and Camping Spots – Smaller spots than most parks but manageable I ended up camping and it was great to be near the lake and playground But it did suck cause most of the kids used my bench and hung out in my spot They should consider blocking those areas or putting up signs Lots of these sites also don’t include dumps, so you gotta pay everytime you want to empty out tanksStaff – People that work here are nice but very strict on following rules You do something and they will call you right awayOverall it’s a chill place but wouldn’t come backPrices – It was a holiday so prices seemed ok

They went all out to create a beautiful hotel and casino that would not only satisfy locals but those with above average taste The design of the buildings are very elegant and the property layout is well planned Service was of a very high standard

The moment you turn into the property, you are greeted by a guard waving and welcoming you, Valet is available or feel free to find your own parking spot There are plenty of spaces due to the size of the property A walk through the hotel on the second floor takes you to the casino entrance Everything was very clean and the casino is non smoking Plenty of beverage carts to serve you as well I wasn’t so lucky today so I did lose some money but I had fun trying to win

Justin M

Stayed three nights here and loved it! The resort has beautiful grounds, including a couple nice large ponds to sit by and watch the wildlife, a large walk-through rose garden, old farm equipment, and moreOur room was on the first floor and had a nice patio We could walk right from our room in the morning and drink coffee by the pond with the ducks

The employees were all very nice and accommodating The room was large and cleanLots of restaurant and food optionsWe did lose everything we brought for gambling, but the casino is huge and has lots of slotsWe will definitely be back!

Renae Flack

We always enjoy going to Barona and have been treated like family there for years The staff is wonderful The hotel is really nice

The food is very good, especially excellent in the steakhouse We love the Indian frybread in the cafe! We especially appreciate that they are staying smoke free in the casino It makes the time playing in the casino so much more pleasant It’s our “go to” place in the San Diego area

Space 92, you are a cruel mistress to find! Ugh Anyway, the neighbors are friendly as all getup, and the grounds are well kept and clean If you need a jump, don’t ask me because I just fried my cables but someone around here is sure to be able to Macguyver that mofo for you in a jiffy

If not, forget the battery and stroll amidst the fresh air and country ambiance Definitely do not attempt to cross the road with any traffic coming, you will end up like a flapjack in a steam press! Plenty of recreation, and friendly front office staff to monitor and receive all your Amazon packages

Cool little spot not to far of a drive for most in San Diego The pond was a great spot for all the kids to go fishing Nightcrawlers seemed to be the best bait, my three kids caught about 100 fish between them over two days (maybe the same ones a few times)

Nothing huge, just the right size to get them excited They also loved hunting for bull frogs at night And of course everything we fished or caught was quickly released for others to enjoy Staff was super nice and friendly, bathrooms and showers were some of the nicest I’ve seen at a campsite in a whileThe only drawback is that yes it is right along the 78 (tent sites are about 100 feet from the road) And one night some a-holes thought it’d be funny to lay on their horns while driving by at 3 in the morning But, after the first night you get used to it Just a heads up if you are looking for 100% peace and quiet, you’ll have to venture somewhere elseBut overall our family had a great time here, and would definitely go again

This motel was very clean, with kind people working the front Comfortable bed, and you can tell the place has had some upgrades and renovations in the recent past No coffee maker in the rooms, but there is a tv with lots of channels to choose from (I don’t watch a lot of tv, but for whatever reason it’s a must-have in a hotel for me)

The town is cute We went to the Safari Park that was nearby and needed a hotel to stay in after our trip This place was inexpensive and well worth it I would definitely recommend this motel if you’re needing a place to stay and you’re near the San Diego Safari Park


One star now because they gave my room away even after I reserved it and gave it away at 1pm not even at 5pm had to drive back 4 hours home sold my room to make a higher profit no accountability on why they gave my room away try to say they contacted me several times but then worker said it wasn’t her it was the morning crew great job was trying to stay here again was a costumer stood here before but not anymoreI’ll give a 35 to 4 star just recently stayed here didn’t take pictures of the hotel it is in the process of renovation you can see the work that they are doing but still letting people book rooms which is a good thing

Staff is Friendly and courteous easy check in and was staff was very noted on if we need anything just go to the front office they would be more then willing to assist Now my room did have some lines on the wall where some stuff was nothing hazardous though just like an outline of of something used to be but like I said the hotel is in the process of renovation can’t wait to see what the hotel looks like when it’s finished Had a room with two beds The beds were comfy slept perfect tv was nice had a mini fridge and microwave Can’t complain The location and convenience where the hotel is food and bar next door down the street the Ramona main stage I believe it’s called but there’s restaurants not very far had a great time pool was cool and convenient can’t wait to see what the hotel looks like when finished definitely going back again just it’s not a five star resort hotel but definitely a nice enough hotel to stay

Feedback From Real Customers


Great hotel! Comfortable beds Good AC Clean room

Great breakfast with tons of options The bacon was in a puddle of grease and oil though, which was unappealing Great lobby and pool area for a good price 35 minutes to the ocean though, so not the best if thats your destination Good customer service and accommodated a very late checkout (1pm) which our family really appreciated

Having read a lot of the reviews prior to my stay, I would say taken on the whole it describes the experience well Friendly staff overwhelmed by a broken down property This hotel is desperately ready for a makeover

We encountered broken equipment upon entering our room and things broke as we used them They provide a beautiful new ice bucket but do not provide cups or glasses within which to put that ice Even the ice maker needed maintenance!Please guys Do something!


Let me 1st start by saying I was not a guest here but I will never be a guest here if this is how they treat people with their customer service we had a family emergency my husband stopped in to use the telephone and was informed he is not able to use the phone or get any assistance or help because he is not a guest if this is how you treat people as a customer then I will never be a guest with you and I will never refer people to your hotel It takes nothing to empathize with a person or simply just being nice wow This is definitely the worst Hilton I’ve ever encountered please be aware of the terrible customer service you will get here
