Who owns this place? Who wants buisness??? REEVALUATE your door-staff and authority. I YOU have 6 parties who were turned away at 2am because YOUR staff "wants to go home"! My advice...promote to the public that you close your doors at 2a, so you don't insult FUTURE business and disrespect customers! Everyone who went to the door,I saw, was turned... More

I have been to this Casino for more than gambling. There are alot of slot machines and if you like to watch people it's a great place for that too. However I love going to see the bands in the middle of the Casino. You may have to search for a chair to sit in but there is no cover... More

If you're looking to people watch on a weekend night and live in the Aurora area, head over to the Holoywood casino! They also feature decent bands on the small stage in the midst of the casino. You may not win a lot of money, but you will have fun!

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
