We stayed here on a whim and were happily surprised. The location was far from downtown area but ok for us since we were just passing through. The food was great and casino was very clean and paid nicely.

The facility is up-to-date. The rooms and bathrooms (most specially) are immaculate. Great customer relations. Parking is a breeze. Amenities are superb. Convenient mini-mart for necessities, adjacent to the front desk. It would have been perfect if fridge and microwave are available in the rooms. Otherwise, we would stay here again and again.

We stopped and got a room and were very impressed with the hotel, the casino. the staff and the buffet dinner. The casino floor is actually fairly... More

The hotel was large and extremely quiet; the staff very friendly; and everything about our room was excellent. Food in the Epic Buffet was hot and tasty...the best casino buffet food I've had. Breakfast the next morning at Take 2 was delicious as well, but their hash brown patties need to be blotted. They were just dripping fat. I highly... More

I see someone else complained about the signage - I agree. Pretty confusing getting in to the place. However, the staff was friendly & the room decent. The buffet was ho hum but the restaurant, which had just opened, served a good meal. The casino was smallish, but had a little of everything. I won enough on slots to help... More

I stayed at this hotel as part of a package deal with a concert I was going to be attending at the nearby Darling's Waterfront Pavilion. I had never stayed at Hollywood Slots Hotel before, and now after staying there for one night, I know I will never do so again! First off, the parking situation was confusing. The signage... More

Specifically, Let It Ride table was not opened 2 days in a row. Was told both days it would open at night. Table never opened. Drove 5 hours just to play this game. They should not be allowed to advertise that they have this game if they're not going to open the table. Very disappointing. Will never go back. Also,... More
