Critic Reviews



The last thing you expect to find at a hotel in the backcountry (albeit one steps from the casino and its restaurants) is sophisticated art and furnishings created by local artists. Enjoy reclaimed handcrafted wood furnishings by David Allen and an array of bold glass feathers and chandeliers by Tom Maroz.



Besides the usual table games, slots, bingo, and satellite wagering, Viejas presents an outdoor summer concert series that draws major artists

Conde Nast Traveler


In addition to its more than 2,000 slot machines, high-stakes Bingo, off-track betting, blackjack, baccarat, poker, craps, and other table games, the state-of-the-art resort and entertainment venue features live concerts, a nightclub, outlet shopping, bowling, and (during the summer) an outdoor roller skating rink.
