The rooms are newly decorated, very comfortable beds and wonderful linens. Although the pillows are too firm and fat. Very clean bathrooms and again, up-to-date décor!

The atmosphere was very friendly and everyone was very nice. The room was extremely quiet and the bed was firm and comfortable. Check in took quite a while, hotel check in shares counter with guest services which was backed up almost every time I went buy. Did not become rich but we had fun donating.

Besides having everything in one spot it's quite reasonable and a lot of fun. They gave us $20 in free play each since we joined their players club. Besides all the slots they also had live greyhound racing. Hot dogs, popcorn, pretzels, beer or chips were $1 before 4. They had a smoke free casino room and everyone was very... More

The accommodations were nice and the staff friendly. The gaming area was slightly disappointing. I didn't see very many slot payouts. There was only one craps table that was very crowded just waiting a turn to play.

The hotel is connected to the dog track and the casino which makes it very convenient to do many things without leaving the property. It is also located strategically between Wheeling and the Ohio side on Wheeling Island ( an island in the Ohio River). We used the dining, dog track and the casino and were very pleased with all....

Clean, safe, attentive staff. It's nice to arrive and be able to stay in one place all night for dinner, entertainment, etc. The rooms are large and quiet. It's a good value and you know what you are getting in terms of service and quality.

Had a very enjoyable time. Bed was very comfortable. Room and hotel very clean. Hotel staff very helpful. The casino floor could use some more waiting staff. Everytime we wanted a drink, we had to leave whatever game we were playing and go to the bar to get a drink.

My husband and I enjoy to go to Wheeling Downs for the evening! It is very close to home, and good entertainment. Their Crab legs/ seafood buffet is great! There is a large selection of steak, fish, chicken on the buffet.

This was our annual trip to Florida for the month of April and our stop at Wheeling Casino. This was our second time staying at the hotel and as usual it was very enjoyable. Only thing missing was an indoor pool. Somthing to keep in mind for the future.
