(Valley Center, CA) – January 6, 2014 – Valley View Casino & Hotel, San Diego's premier gaming destination, announced today that they will be redefining the Southern California gaming experience with a head-to-toe remodel from January 6 -16. During this period of time, they will be undergoing a process unprecedented in the gaming business: an Extreme Casino Makeover with an estimated six months of remodeling work accomplished in only 11 short days. To spare the discomfort of remodeling to their loyal guests and uphold their promise of providing the best casino experience in Southern California, Valley View Casino & Hotel will be closing their doors to the public during these 11 days. Unlike most construction projects of this magnitude, Valley View's Extreme Casino Makeover will work on an hour-to-hour schedule, 24 hours a day and every minute will count toward the overall success of the project.

During their Grand Opening Weekend starting Friday, January 17, 2014, the All-New Valley View Casino & Hotel will be revealed, featuring a newly-expanded buffet, upgraded hotel rooms and casino restrooms, all-new carpet and chairs throughout the property, and dozens of other improvements.

"From our casino and our hotel to our award-winning Buffet and more, we're elevating the entire casino experience for our guests," said Bruce Howard, General Manager of Valley View Casino & Hotel. "Plus, to offer our loyal guests the best atmosphere possible, we've decided to do all of this in 11 days instead of inconveniencing them with six months or more of constant stop-and-go construction that continuously interrupts their fun. We felt we owed it to our most loyal guests to exceed their high expectations and we know we will accomplish that in the next 11 days - they will be thrilled with the results of our Extreme Casino Makeover."

Beginning January 17 at 8am, the All-New Valley View Casino & Hotel will open to the public and visitors will enjoy new enhancements and amenities throughout the property, with dozens of luxurious updates in place from floor to ceiling. On the casino floor, all-new carpets will be installed, plush new seating will be added, the Players Clubs and VIP Lounge will get a new look and more. Plus, all restrooms on property are receiving an update that includes the addition of beautiful marble and granite. At the award-winning Buffet, an expansion is happening that will offer even more room for guests to enjoy endless Maine lobster every night and all day on weekends. Each hotel room in Valley View's 108-room boutique hotel will also be upgraded with an upscale redesign and luxurious new amenities. To top everything off, the hotel, parking garage and more will receive a stunning new paint job. All of these updates will be made in addition to various behind-the-scenes improvements that will help Valley View Casino & Hotel's Team Members provide unparalleled service to all of their guests.

"On behalf of Valley View Casino & Hotel's 1,000 dedicated Team Members, I invite you, your families and friends to join us for the Grand Opening of the All-New Valley View Casino & Hotel," said Joe Navarro, President and CEO of the San Pasqual Casino Development Group, Inc.

We look forward to seeing you on January 17 and celebrating with you all month long."
