SAN DIEGO -- June 9, 2014

Viejas Casino & Resort today announced that it has received a TripAdvisor®
Certificate of Excellence award. The accolade, which honors hospitality
excellence, is given only to establishments that consistently achieve
outstanding traveller reviews on TripAdvisor, and is extended to qualifying
businesses worldwide. Establishments awarded the Certificate of Excellence
represent the upper echelon of businesses listed on the website.

“Winning the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence is a true source of pride
for the entire team at Viejas Casino & Resort and we’d like to thank all of
our guests who took the time to complete a review on TripAdvisor,” said Viejas
Casino & Resort General Manager Chris Kelley. “With the TripAdvisor
Certificate of Excellence based on customer reviews, the accolade is a
remarkable vote of confidence in our business and our continued commitment to
excellence.”

When selecting Certificate of Excellence winners, TripAdvisor uses a
proprietary algorithm to determine the honorees that takes into account
reviews ratings. Businesses must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating
of at least four out of five, volume and recency of reviews. Additional
criteria include a business’ tenure and popularity ranking on the site.

“TripAdvisor is pleased to honor exceptional hospitality businesses for
consistent excellence,” said Marc Charron, President of TripAdvisor for
Business. “The Certificate of Excellence award gives top performing
establishments around the world the recognition they deserve, based on
feedback from those who matter most – their customers. From Australia to
Zimbabwe, we want to applaud exceptional hospitality businesses for offering
TripAdvisor travellers a great customer experience.”
