Here are the 2008 San Diego Casino Awards as chosen by the editor of San Diego Casino Reviews:
Best Casino Hotel - Harrah's Rincon Hotel & Casino
If only for its cool resort style pool area, Harrah’s Rincon Hotel and Casino is our Editor’s Choice
Winner for Best Casino Hotel. You can tell Harrah’s strives to be the best as they are always
remodeling or improving the hotel and casino. The pool area was redone and you can now play
Blackjack in the new Beach Blackjack area or relax in the pillowed lounge chairs by the new Firepit.
The Garden Tower rooms have been transformed to modern oasis decor with flat screen tv’s and
private patios (ground floor--poolside rooms).
The Casino is busy and well laid out. You will find over 1600 slot machines of all types and
denominations, 50+ tables games, 3 video poker bars and a newly remodeled High Roller room.
Add to this the Live Poker Room, entertainment, concerts and you will see why Harrah’s Rincon is
our winner for Best Overall Casino Hotel. Read on to find out more about Harrah’s Rincon.

Best Buffet - Valley View Casino
We have chosen The Buffet at Valley View as our Winner for Best Buffet. The Buffet is heavenly
and features over 200 menu items including grilled steaks, Mexican, Asian and Italian cuisine and
tons of decadent desserts. If you are a Player‘s Club member, you will likely receive a free buffet
coupon every month! And, if you are not, you can join the free Players Club at Valley View Casino
and your first buffet is free!
Best Comps - Valley View Casino
All the San Diego casinos have Players Club or comp programs and most are very generous. So it
was difficult to choose which comp program is the best. We looked at them all and came up with
Valley View Casino as we feel they offer the best overall comps for the players. Their Colossal
Coin Jackpot, free Buffets, MorePlay & other promotions put them over the top!
Best Customer Service - Sycuan Resort & Casino
Sycuan Casino gets top honors for superb Customer Service! It starts with the warm greeting at
the door and it just gets better from there. Service with a smile from the valets to the bingo
cashiers to the dealers to the casino cage to the front desk at the resort---it must be contagious
because everyone at Sycuan seems to have caught the Customer Service fever!
