Our 1st visited to this Casino & Racetrack was for 2 days and evenings including the afternoon of the Belmont Stakes Race. The Casino is clean, has several food venues for pizza, sandwiches, pasta, desserts, a very nice restaurant with excellent food plus upstairs there is a sports bar with menu. There are plenty of assorted machines and we saw... More

We like going to the track. When you are at the track, if you are over 21, you can use the clean bathrooms and get a complimentary soda from inside the casino.

This is a casino and horse racing track. It has a big casino. Also had dinner it was ok. Best part was we could watch the races from our table. We had a great time!

I probably sound like a broken record but I wonder how casinos stay in business today. Happened to be in Hershey for vacation and decided to go to the Hollywood Casino in nearby Grantville. Ten minute drive and a very nice place. Not a lot of people as it was a hot Monday afternoon. The casino is clean, the staff... More

this place is a hidden gem! it is in the middle of nowhere, but only 9 miles from Hersheypark, which is why we decided to check it out. The casino was clean and large...I guess it depends on what you are used to. It was a lot of fun, plenty of parking. Just fun!

Disliked losing so much money but it was clean and we had fun. That is the name of the game though. Great horse track, wish we could have seen more

Nice casino. Good slot machines. Wish they had low max bid machines but overall nice experience we spent over 3 hours here!

The table min was very high. You can play $10 craps pretty much anywhere on the planet except this place. The min for craps here was $15 on a Thursday night. The place seemed clean but it was very smokey.

A visit here & it reminds me that PA casinos are limited & boring. Very tight slots area & VERY Smokey(even in the nonsmoking area).Table games are sparse & over crowded as well. Very limited food/beverage options. Only one bar on the floor & if there is a band playing you can't get to it(it was about 15 people deep,... More

This is a cool place to go see live bands. I wish the bathrooms were a bit closer to the stage/bar area on the main level, but beggars can't be choosers. I'll never understand slot machines, I wish they had classes on how to properly use them without having to read all of the directions. I made my regular "donation"... More
