We made our second visit to Hollywood Casino in Bangor this weekend, and sadly, we were disappointed. Now, maybe it's becuase we've done a fair amount of travel lately, at some very high rated hotels and our expectations are pretty high. However, for the price you pay here ($179 per night -- it's near impossible to get a discounted rate... More

This hotel had no heat in my room and evidently has been plagued by this issue, according to another guest and the shuttle driver. The other guest said he's been moved twice prior to this stay. I arrived at 1:30 in the morning and called the desk advising them I had no heat after turning the thermostat up. She said... More

We have stayed at Hollywood Casino Hotel many times. You definitely pay for the convenience however. The rooms are very spacious and clean. You can check in and never leave they building if you like gambling. We like the convenience of the proximity to the Waterfront Concerts. The parking garage is safe. The staff at the front desk are always... More

This hotel is connected to the casino. It is a bit pricey, but always clean and the casino part is fun. I feel that it is worth the extra $40/night that you would save at another Bangor hotel. : -) The front desk staff are always pleasant. Non smoking hotel and casino ... yay! Easy parking in parking garage. (free)... More

My wife and I stay here whenever we are in Bangor. Love the location, a nice walk to downtown and on the bank of the river beside the walking trail. Great rooms, friendly service. Great entertainment. The buffett is really good and at a great price to boot!

I spent the night there recently for slightly over $100. Granted it was a weekday,with an outdoor windchill of below 0 F. So it's likely they didn't have a lot of business that week. The room was far better than those I have gotten previously at the Bangor Hampton or Hilton, and I paid less! The room had such a... More

We had a very nice stay in December. Only concern was inconsistent pricing of the rooms. Room rates varied from 109 to 252 per night depending if it was a travel website or hotel website and seemed to vary daily. I felt for Bangor Maine and at a casino the hotel prices were too high. We had 16 in our... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our property! Our rates do fluctuate based on occupancy, much like airlines vary their rates based on available seating. We do try to keep rate parody between our website and the travel agent websites we are contracted with. For future, when booking a group of over 10 rooms, please contact our sales... More

Great hotel to stay!!! The location is perfect for us as we love that the casino is close. The snack bar in the Casino had good food. It's not full sit down restaurant, but still very convenient when you get in later at night and don't feel to go back out. The service was great. Rooms are big and beautiful.... More

Like a lot of visitors, the layout of the casino and hotel elevators confused us on our first visit a few years ago. And they confused us yet again on our second visit in November 2013. The parking garage is huge and well lit but you really want to try and park as close to the elevator exit as possible... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. When making a reservation you can always request to be away from the elevator (or near the elevator if you choose). We do our best every morning to block these requests so that our guests are happy. As for shopping there are some small locally owned shops and restaurants closer... More

I stayed here because of a business meeting nearby, so didn't gamble, although I went through the casino to eat at the restaurant inside. The rooms are very nicely decorated and updated.
