Bring Your Own Pillow. I've stayed in enough hotels to know what's important - a clean room and comfortable pillows. Those pillows were dreadful. Wasn't crazy about the cloud of smoke you were forced to walk through at the front door either. I was really expecting a balcony too, I didn't see any. But hey, I stayed for free so who cares? I certainly wouldn't pay $179 for that.

we were looking for a quiet place to enjoy nature, and have some fun as well. everything played out perfectly. Our room was what we expected (clean, average size, great lake view); food was over expectations (buffet for dinner Saturday had food that we could see being served at a nice local restaurant, and very reasonably priced, even with a bottle of wine: under $75), and a great view; casino was fun and accessible, and NO SMOKING (hooray), though we won a little; the lake trail (we are walkers, not hikers) was doable in 3 hours, a good workout, and we'll return to do other trails. Staff were personable and friendly. we're not golfers, but could see it was perfect for them. Also, could have rented kayaks if we wanted. all in all, a mini-vacation that exceeded expectations. 2.5 hours from Baltimore is a doable trip again. thanks!

Room Tip: away from the construction during the week; we were not affected by this over the weekend. lake view...

The park is still wonderfully relaxing, clean, spacious, and fun. The casino is beautiful and totally non-smoking, which is wonderful for those of us who hate smoke. The staff is plentiful and helpful, and the food at the restaurants is excellent. If you want a place where the whole family can gather for fun in the sun during the daytime, and great food and excitement OR relaxation at night, Rocky Gap Casino Resort is definitely the place to visit.

Room Tip: For those who like a little elbow room, pick the family room.....408 as a room to reserve! It is abo...

Just returned from a visit at Rocky Gap. Stayed 3 yrs ago and the biggest change is the casino. The lobby is no longer a relaxing spot as the casino is right off the lobby. The lake and outside areas continue to be pleasant and relaxing. We enjoyed sitting lake side. The rooms seemed to have been updated and felt fresh and clean. The food was average as before. The biggest disappointment was the spa. Was charged $70 for a "spa pedicure", which was a very basic pedicure which I pay $30 for at home. It felt hurried and was nothing special. My traveling friends felt the same. It was a nice meeting place for 3 friends to have dinner, take a walk aroung the lake and sit on the dock. People seem to be enjoying the golf course and of course those who want a casino would be happy. Avoid the spa. Cumberland is a short drive if you want to explore other restaurants.

Room Tip: lake front rooms are nice.

Thank you for taking time to review your visit with us. I am glad you found some relaxation by the lake and were able to have a good time with friends. I am concerned about your comments regarding the spa, however. Our Spa Manager and her staff strive to provide a pleasant experience for our guests by offering top of the products and services. Could you please provide me with more details and suggestions regarding your spa experience so that I may share them with our Spa Staff. Please email me at info@rockygapcasino.com, so I may have a better understanding of your spa experience.

had a wonderful time...beautiful property, nice, clean hotel, very friendly staff and not bothered at all by the casino which shares the building. there is a lake with lots of water activities...boat rentals and there are bike rentals and golf looks like it is great. we didn't use the golf course though. i wish they would build some tennis courts..that would make it ideal!

Wow what a change from a sleepy lake resort to an exciting destination. The restaurants are great with a nice variety of quality foods. The casino is small but adequate having a good mix of slots and table games. Entertainment is everywhere on Friday and Saturday nights. Sitting lakeside quietly viewing the scenery was a way my wife and I spent time on our anniversary trip. I highly recommend this location as it provides swimming and open space, golfing, casino, good food, and opportunities for relaxation and quiet if that is what you want. It is also a short drive from the Pittsburgh, Washington, Frederick, and Baltimore. A way to get away from the urban madness

Room Tip: Golf side give a beautiful view and is cheaper than lakeside.
