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

Hollywood is a very clean and well-maintained casino. It offers plenty of both smoking and non-smoking areas. There are lots of slot machines as well as a large selection of table games. Free, non-alcoholic beverages are available. There are also several restaurants in the casino, and alcoholic beverages available from servers or at the bar. I have heard some other... More

Nice place for the middle of nowhere. Seems to be a lot of smoking permitted area versus no smoking.

I try to go to the casino at least once every 2 to 3 months. It is one of the nicer casinos. I live in Maryland and don't go to the casinos there. I feel much safer at this casino. Several restaurants. Free nonalcoholic beverages. The staff from the cleaning people to security are very nice. I usually visit in... More

WHile visiting York county, PA, I drove to Grantville to visit the Hollywood Casino. Avoid rush hour traffic, as there was a lot of road work and freeway changes! Lots of parking, including a parking garage. The casino has a lot of smoking as well as non-smoking areas. There are a number of places to eat/drink and drink servers were... More
