I was somewhat concerned after seeing the many negative reviews of this casino. However, sometimes you have to go check a place out rather than believing what you read. In the case of this casino, the negative reviews, especially those with one and two stars, seem excessively low. This casino has many attributes. I did not particularly think any of... More

Before we even thought about going to the casino I checked their site to see if the slots I like were available there. It showed they were so we thought we would check it out and spend the night on our way up to NYC. I'm so glad I visited the Harpers Ferry National Park first, because if I had... More

I have been coming to this casino for 15 years and always had fun. But in the past year it is not pleasurable anymore. As soon as you come in the door the stench of cigarette smoke hits you more so than ever before. I don't know if the exhaust system need upgraded or not but it is horrible. By... More

We went to see a concert in the paid venue part of the casino, and I highly doubt we will go vack. The floor is not graduated so you cannot see anything but the heads in front of you! The chairs are similar to the fold up chairs you would have at a church picnic and they are packed like... More

I never did go to the horse race track so this rating by no means reflects on that aspect. The casino had what appeared to be every popular table game if that is your desire. As for the slot machines...old and out dated. If you have been to Maryland Live, Vegas, Hardrock Tampa..you won't recognize any of the slots here.... More

I haven't been to the Casino at Charles Town in years...and won't go back again! We played golf at The Woods, Hedgesville, WV and decided to go for dinner and a couple of hours gambling at the Hollywood Casino at Charles Town. The food was great (in another review); however, the Casino is awful. It wreaks of smoke even in... More

I was not expecting the size and games the casino offered. While not Vegas or even Atlantic City, for a fun night, Hollywood Casino in Charles Town will do the trick. The place is well maintained and is not the dodgy place I had expected to see.

I really was shocked to see such a large and lovely casino. There was nothing not to like except the stakes and the amount of "exotic games". It's annoying not to be cable to play a regular blackjack game with a $5.00 minimum instead of ten. Even the crap table starts at $10.00. Hey! There's a recession going on so... More

This casino has great room for slot machines & plenty of tables for cards. The best time to go if you want to get a table for card playing or slots is early in the days. Great air ventilation and non-smoking areas are plentiful. Bathrooms are kept in fantastic order & very clean. They have 3 restaurants to eat at... More
