We stayed in our motorhome in their campground. Good level paved site. Elect & water, no sewer at site. Eady access dump behind the hotel. Easy access off I-80. Would stay again. Also ate in casino. Soup & half sandwich. Decent. Would have liked to have won in casino.

Stayed two nights at the Hollywood Casino Hotel in Joliet, IL. Very clean rooms. Friendly front desk staff. Liked that we could walk across the parking lot to the casino. Not being connected to the casino the hotel was very quiet. Continental breakfast was plenty to keep you going until lunch. We were comped for a meal at the buffet... More

Beds are so soft you can't enjoy a good nights sleep, your partner moves a centimeter and it's as if you're on a water bed and then you're wide awake. There is not a fridge in the room which we were prepared for and brought a cooler to fill w/ice for things we brought to keep cold - no fridge... More

The matresses are very uncomfortable. The rooms do not come with hair conditioner and shower gel. It sounds nit picky but it took 20 minutes to detangle my hair. The front desk gave us incorrect info on casino restaurant hours.

Sadly, i am just able to give 2 stars for this hotel as well. We booked via Expedia a 1 Queen size bed room. But we got a 2 full size beds room. We complained, but they told us they are out of the type of room we reserved (????). The hotel itself is very outdated and would need a... More

My family and I stayed at the Hollywood Casino hotel for christmas eve. It was delightful. The rooms were large, clean, comfortable and right across the parking lot from the casino. The entry to the hotel offered a park lot setting with about 50 deer feasting right by the road. What a delight! The staff was friendly, the shuttle driver... More

We could not have picked a better time to stay at the Hollywood Casino. The room looked out over the beautiful landscape surrounding the hotel, and with the fresh snowfall it truly added a romantic touch. The service and cleanliness of the rooms should also be mentioned, along with a very nice breakfast! If you wish to spend time at... More

Breakfast in the morning was fine. The people eating were very friendly. Food was hot and cold. Enough to get you full. Casino has a shuttle to take you from the hotel. It only takes a couple minutes to get to the casino.

If you get to the casino and start drinking play it safe and stay at the hotel. They offer incentives like brunch, dinner, discounts and also free breakfast. Nothing overly fancy but the beds are comfortable and rooms in good shape.
