If you do love gambling, there is more than enough variety here. Blackjack, Craps, and of course my personal favorite - lots of slot machines!! But they also have Thoroughbred horse racing 8 months of the year, a variety of restaurant choices (from a food court to an expensive steak house), and on the weekend they usually have a band...

We've been twice. The second time we went, it was more exciting because we bet a few dollars on some horses. Makes you get more excited about the races.

We were a little disappointed by this casino. Their commercials do a great job getting you in, but the energy level we expected from a casino just wasn't there. They also didn't have many eating options. I think we only saw 2 and tried both. The buffet was better we expected from a buffet. The sports bar looked great, but... More

The staff is very friendly. My machine ate my money and a slot tech was there in less than a minute to fix it. A majority of the slots are penny and nickel machines. It would be nice to see more quarter, 50 cent and dollar machines with a greater variety of games to choose from. Machines are extremely tight.... More

Sometimes a bit tight and then every now and again do extremely well. Can get drinks from cocktail waitress (b sure 2 tip) or can help yourself to free fountain drinks. Clean, nice, shuttle picks u up right out front if staying at any of several motels near by, (again remember to tip) lots of under cover parking, great security.... More

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
