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

Had a good time at the Casino and enjoyed the the horse race. Learned a lot about beating on the races from an old timer. We actually won a little. Did not like that the drink girls don's seem to care about those on the low value slot machines. But once you got a drink they did check on you.... More

My family group likes the non-smoking casino section so we finally found it. The horse races was fun but kinda late starting 7:00pm.

There is nothing to distinguish this place from all the other casinos within a 2 hour drive. It took us almost 30 minutes to find the correct entrance to the parking garage and then to find a place where we could register for a players card.

I spent over one thousand dollars in one night back in April now it is July and I did not receive anything not even a food voucher. I go to many casinos and they at least feed you to thank you for coming.
