Went early on a Friday night. Learned that there was a crab leg buffet dinner after we arrived and jumped on it. Luckly we got in line around 5:15 and only had to wait about 20 minutes; those who came later had a much longer wait. But whatever the wait, it was worth it. Large and tasty servings were plentiful... More

Living in Pennsylvania, we've patronized the Hollywood Casino in Grantville, PA numerous times so coming here on the way home on a road trip was to enjoy but also compare this one to ours back home. A lot was, as expected, the same but there were some notable differences. The floor layout here is different with designated pods or areas... More

My husband & I visited twice while staying in The Inn at Charles Town. It was our first time walking into a casino and being allowed to play (trip to Las Vegas when we were 18). The staff was friendly, free soda, and plenty of places to pick to eat. We had dinner at the Sports place above the main... More

Very tight slots here. My recommendation is to pay the penny slots if you want to stick around for a bit. Lost $150 today on the machines and out of my nine trips there, only won money my very first time. There are plenty of slots, races, and I overall like the look and feel of the place, just don't...

My husband and I were passing through the area and thought that we would check out Hollywood Casino. Parking was ample but you have to walk through the garage to get into the casino. It was your regular fare, slots, blackjack, poker, etc. nothing very special. If I want to gamble, I will stick with MD Live.

The Event Center inside the casino is a great venue to catch some of your favorite musical talents on their line-up! We were very pleased with the convenience and ease of purchasing tickets, parking (getting in and out), short walk through the casino to the Event Center. Kill some time playing the slots, poker or roulette wheel. Grab some dinner... More

We had a wonderful time at the casino and highly recommend it to others. This was my first trip to a casino and this casino is in a beautiful area. The service was wonderful and friendly.

This was a Friday Night in July. It looked like the table game minimum bets were minimal ($10.00), perhaps to minimal as it was impossible to get to the craps table and not particularly open for regular blackjack as well. As I didn't really go for the gambling I played some slots and won enough drinks. It looked like the... More

Of course I can't be negative as long as I win! They also have very nice restaurants. My only complaint would be Smoking, but, I don't let it stop me.
