This is not Vegas and you should not expect it to be. Otherwise Hollywood is decent. I really like the smoke-free atmosphere. Many of the "local" style casinos around the country are horribly smoky and I feel sick after 15 minutes or so and leave reeking. I played only tables so I cannot comment on the fairness of the slots.... More

Casino table games are reasonable, and there is plenty of room around the slot machines. If you're really hungry the buffet is really good with great assortments at $22. the sandwich shop next door is quite handy. Two soda machines dispense free drinks. Alcoholic drinks are reasonably priced..

I returned for my 50th High School Reunion trip to Aurora, Illinois having spent most of those years thousands of miles from my home town. I was amazed to find that in the middle of this sleepy, little midwest town was a thriving casino and restaurant floating on the Fox River. The food was much better than I had experienced... More

The facility is dirty and food is horrible. Tables and slots do not pay out and patrons unwashed. Absolutely awful like words cannot convey.

It's the biggest rip off, you will lose your money faster than any other casino, They have stupid promotions so they can get you there and take all your money. The money they give away is the money they take from us. You might as well just hand over your money when you walk in and go home. !!!! Aurora... More

nothing new or different about this casino...sucked our money up faster than most. It did have some interesting Hollywood displays, and did have a Hollywood in the 30's vibe.

As an Aurora native I have been to the Hollywood casino many times. Maybe I have just been lucky but I have found that both the dealers on the casino floor and the security at the front gate are very friendly and welcoming . I truly do not understand why there are so many negative reviews of this place on... More

this is the single, most unfriendly casino I have ever been to; and, please, don't serve alcohol if you don't want your patrons to drink any; and please, greet people and say hello when they enter the public establishment to spend money - poor customer service will drive you out of business - I will never go there again.

This casino is smoke free which makes it very nice for us non-smokers. It has a really nice high-tech free beverage station as well. The Hollywood memorabilia is noteworthy and enjoyable to view. They took our money too fast though, it was no fun. We played various slots as well as live roulette. I probably would not go back in... More
